I'm very sure the Short shift(i'm already on sti short shift), the body kit and several cosmetic applications can be adapted.

I think getting the Intake manifold would be great, but make sure that you get the TGV deletes as well or there is not point in doing it. Also, you will have to get the car retuned if you change the manifold.

for the cost difference from a STI over the WRX you can tune the WRX up to run as fast... its just a WRX with some better parts.. all the same systems electronically i beleve

Yes... But to effectively do what they did, would cost you probably more then just purchasing the STI.... It has a few adds that would cost a lot to do to the WRX.

i was thinking about getting the STI front bumper. The front fenders are cool, but they would definitely draw unneeded attention.

I was thinking of the front bumper too, but I am not sure whether it would fit on the WRX, cause of the wide front fenders on the STI.

i can see myself doing that, because whenever i get a FMIC i will be too lazy to put it back on.

it looks good to me.
i figure if you are satisfied with the CBE and we haven't had an issue with the CAI, the FMIC should be good too.

i might end up going with UR if no other companies have any for sale when i want to buy one. ::cough:: Perrin ::cough:: gt30r ::cough::

ouch... my lung.

Wonder if it would be possible to put the dual exhaust that the STI has on our WRX. I've always been a fan of the dual and now that the STI has one, I may consider figuring out how to run one. The front bumper, rear spoiler, and possible the shifter trim. Although I am not a fan of having the STI placement in a WRX :(

STI front bumper will require putting on the wide body fender in front, dont forget that...

since there's no oem parts for wrx thread, i didnt know where to put this and would really appreciate the help

anyways, im about to order the rear diffuser(never came with the car) and i noticed that it comes with a color choice.. why is that?? subarugenuineparts btw

also, when i went to the dealership to get my first oilchange while i was waiting i decided to check out the other wrxs' and would look if any of them had a rear diffuser and non of them did.. and im thinking surely one of them must have them but still couldnt find one with one.
