02 wrx

Hi all
had my car about 3 weeks and am looking for its first mods{kinda}
the origional recipt shows that when the origional owner first purchased it he had a magnex pipe fitted {looks like a cat back not sure if there is usually a mid silencer} on mine there is not it also says he had a superchip fitted..
there seems to be alot of turbo lag i am thinking of decating the uppipe and fitting the FORGE recirculating valve..
i have also been using normal UL fuel have read that i should be running shell V...
i would apreciate all/any feedback..
many thanks.
phil.

Refitting the recirc valve and running the car on super unleaded is recommended fella

De-cat and new valve should help but you must use Super UL petrol all the time !!
Might be an idea to give her a service too, regardless of what previous owner has said.
