?Whats Next?

Hi all. Some advice please. Im thinking of spending some cash on my 98 JDM WRX.

Whats the best route??? The car is totaly standard and has 60,000 miles.

Was thinking of changing the I/C but dont want a FMIC as i'm not looking to run huge power, just a few tweaks....maybe 320 HP?? It's currently pushing 286 HP.....any ideas? Would love to hear from some one with the same car whos done a bit to see what works and what doesnt.

Looked into a replacement intercooler but unless u spend 1000 not much point, in fact can make it worse.

Thanks

Re: ?Whats Next?

Have taken ur advice, and have one on order, it was a cool 650

Another question. Cause it was an import it has a jap radio, mini disk plyer, a cd player, and a 7" tv screen....Alls ounds good but cant get any of it working!!!

I know the radio needs a fm expander, but the dispay is out.....its a pioneer set up to. Am thinking of putting it all on jap ebay...

What im wondering is this:- It will leave a big gap where it used to be and i would like to put some dials in there, as well as another cd player. Can you suggest what would fit nice, and how about fitting it? Im a mechanical fitter so not bothered about the work involved but want a well nice fitting one.
