New Tyres and Your Thoughts Please

Just got a brand new set of Toyo T1Rs fitted to my Classic - what a difference, it honestly feels like a new car...!!...I can now drive in a STRAIGHT LINE again...!!...no wandering.....!!

Anyway, this modification thing is all new to me...

Now that the car feels a Subaru again, what should be my next mod..??

Its a completely standard car and its time to have some fun...!!

Not really got a budget in mind, but starting from scratch what thoughts do you guys have..??..should I go for exhaust, suspension, engine mods 1st..??

Cheers,

sena

Take a look at this basic tuning guide. Should help.

I personally would go for a new exhaust first (unleash that scooby burble fully). After that engine or suspension depends on what you want from the car.

OK..!!...thanks for the replies and links....

Found this on scoobyworld.co.uk...

Impreza Turbo 1993-2000 Classic : Subaru Impreza Exhaust - The Legendary Afterburner

Can someone explain if this would be a worthwhile upgrade...??

Would I be better buying a full system or is this a good starting point...??

What is the decat/cat thing about, would this be illegal for an MOT/emissions..??

sorry for being a total newbie...!!!!
