I have around $2,500.00 to put into my stock 07’ Spec.B and I’m looking for suggestions...

Car Use and what I’m looking for:
My car is a DD and I was use to a stage 2 STI. I travel the canyons a lot so suspension is first priority for me!

Next I want some power, my STI was right around 300whp and I miss that. Don’t need crazy HP numbers just close to 300whp. I still want decent gas mileage when I’m not into the throttle.

Here’s what I’m already planning on:

Suspension:
  • Hotkis F/R Sway Bar kit from infamous
  • Kartboy endlinks F/R (had on STI awesome links!)
  • AVO RSB mounts
Engine/Exhaust:
  • Invidia Catless DP (stock mid and CB)
  • 3” DP to stock adapter
  • Heatwrap for DP
  • Tune from Boost Creep (Will this put me close enough to 300whp, with moderate tune????? Or No)
Debating on:
  • Will up pipe cause problems with emissions? I know the DP will but willing to swap to stock when time for emissions.
  • I’m looking to get better ride quality from aftermarket springs as well but don’t want a much more then a .5” drop rear .75” front. Haven’t been able to find springs like this so far….
  • Was looking at CAI but after researching don’t feel it’s necessary for the power range I’m looking for.
  • Would a small turbo upgrade and top mount be possible/worth it????
Thanks for any suggestions!
