it depends how much power you really want. a full exhaust, cai, t-stat, and tune would do wonders.

i also have the same problem. do you have a little more detail on what i can purchase and install on my own? turbo maitenence is an unneeded expense at the moment so any other advise would be great.

Any type of engine modification done to a Subaru requires a tune. One way to go is a short ram intake, cobb would be best because it has internal fins to smooth the incoming air so it flows well past the MAF sensor, a full exhaust is also a nice route because subaru factory exhausts tend to be very restrictive. If you do decide to go the turbo route it can get quite price especially on a non-turbo vehicle, because of the supporting mods you would need.

Suspensions tires for starts then intake manifold exhaust then headers and then slap a Avo tubo kit in
