2002 Bugeye WRX Wagon

Hi all, new to this forum, was looking for some advice on my Wagon, I have bought this as a runaround and to play with,

I was looking to up the performance a little, it has been remapped to 250 bhp with no mods, its running standard exhaust, intercooler and air filter.

I was thinking of upgrading the air filter to a Cosworth panel filter, and maybe upgrading the intercooler.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice, I dont want a noisy exhaust at all, I want the car to be as quiet as possible and more stealth.

I have completed lots of external and reversible mods on my integrale so was looking to do similar to the Wagon, just wanted some advice.

Thanks

Martin

Hi mate, turbo back exhaust is the best thing you can do, there are lots good sounding examples

decat down pipe and prodrive exhaust 2nd hand will give a nice note and a huge increase with a tweak on your map. Add a panel filter too

thanks, it is worth getting a higher flow IC to increase spool up, bought a new one for my lancia and it spooled up much faster, however it does have a dual cone air filter and 65mm exhaust from turbo back?
