What's up everyone,
I am recently a proud owner of a 06 rs. I never imagined how fast the car was. I have been a Evo lover forever. The car has everything. Looks, Speed and Handing. Now I cant figure out what I should do first??? Any suggestions??? :dsm:

I love my RS. Cangrats on yours. :thumb:
First thing (IMO); exhaust. Cat-back, test pipe/high flow cat, and downpipe. In that order or all at once depending on budget.
Is this your first turbo car?

Thanks. It's my first turbo car. I was thinking about those mods you mentioned. I cant make up my mind on which combo I should go with. Now once i make up my mind should I get a ecu flash right away???

Thank you for the nice comments. From what some other memebers have told me before the flash they would recommend the following things in order to gain a decent amount of power and not have to send your ECU out over and over after each mod. They reccomend a turboback Exhaust, MBC, and a fuel pump. I would personally add in a intake on top of that or a drop in filter, I am waiting until i finish these basic mods before the flash. Have fun with it and post some pics!

It sounds like a plan. Now I just have to figure out which exhaust I wanna go with. I know this is a newbie question but. Does a turboback include a uppipe/downpipe/catback???

The Turboback is a downpipe, test pipe or High flow cat, and a catback exhaust. The subarus are the ones with the uppipes. there are some good deals out there if you look around at the different online vendors. I love the way the IX's look! I love the black housing tails and headlights, I may be ordering a set of tails from my work when i get a chance.

Do you work for a dealership??? I like the way the IX tails look but for some reason I love the MR's.

The MR is a sweet ride. My brother in laws cousin has one. Our evo's stock have awesome handling. The MR raises the bar. The Bilstein suspension makes a difference. We can piece our evo together and we would save money.

How true, I don't need 6spds. Just the BBS wheels, bilstein shocks, and vortex generator and i would be happy. :thumb:

YOu should look into getting an RNR turboBack. really looks clean and Stock appearance, while the down pipe and Hiflow cat are all 3inch. I just put one in 3 weeks ago. Idle sound very deep and smooth when accelerating.

congrats on the car! I'd recommend that you just drive and enjoy it for a good while. Then, if/when you decide to mod you'll have plenty of information to base your decision on. If possible ride in other peoples cars with various exhausts to get an idea of the noise of each.

If you're looking for mod recommendations to start investigating though, I'd have to defer to SCC as they recommended 3 things in one of their 8 great rides articles, a rear sway bar, full exhaust, and tuning like with an ems, piggyback, or eeprom flash.

Thanks man. I love the car. It's fun to drive. It's everything I expected. The car for a 4 banger is very torquey. I hope there is a Evo meet sometime in the near future so I can check out some other evos. :dsm:
