Upgrades worth doing?
 
Not sure if I'm in the right place to ask but, I have an 05 LGT, and for upgrades, I'd like to do an Access Port, UP, and suspension. Since we're talking mostly engine, I wanna know what's the best price to power ratio for these cars. I've been looking at some Catted UPs and other stuff, and some companies claim 7-10hp gain, and Cobb claims a 14% hp gain. I'm not looking for extreme power, just something nicer than stock and keep the car looking like a sleeper. Which is why I'm keeping the stock exhaust for now. Tips and results anyone else has had?

Dp/up + tune.

Because 2005 LGT

^^This because 05's have a cat in the UP.
Besides being restrictive it can break apart and take out the motor.
Hence the reason Subaru stopped using them.

Dp/Up and tune sounds good, not worth getting an Access Port?

If you can do open source and are comfortable with that then no.

Also, thanks for pointing out UP laff. Completely spaced the cat since he is 05.

If you're gonna get a tune, might as well do an EBC while you're at it.

If you're gonna get a EBC, might as well do a BNR16G while you're at it.

In for slippery slope!

it really depends what you want to do with your car? if sleeper is what you want then just do the up with the risestor fix and be done. a dp on stock exhaust is going to do nothing really.

it will do very little without a tune. A dp on stock exhaust + a tune will give good results.

Downpipe and no tune = problems.
There's a guy running stock mufflers with a 3076, so it's not that restrictive.

OP Just looks at Cobbs site for increases over stock w/ stage 2 setup.

Bang for buck + Emissions compliant in MOST states =

Catted DP OR a stock downpipe with ONE cat remaining and ONE cat gutted
De-catted Up Pipe or aftermarket up-pipe with no cat
Opensource Tune (or Cobb AP for comfort) + custom e-Tune from a well regarded forum member

You are looking at ~50whp and 80wtq over stock with this combo, for anywhere from $300-$1000 depending on your route.
