Get a turbo back exhaust, aftermarket panel filter or pod if u want induction noise and a retune. See how u go I'm sure it will give u more power.

Not happy with power then get a sti top mount intercooler, sti turbo, decap injectors. Your rex will really sing to u then. May have missed something? Someone may want to chime in. This would make for a fast street car.

Want more then suggest sell and buy sti before nodding your rex.

I'd probably hunt around for an sti instead. Having said that, I converted my lib to and early sti motor with out it costing a fortune (everything else did tho!).

I love my bug to bits and am happy to put cash and time into it but wish I waited to buy the right sti instead.

If you have already purchased a WRX, buy sensible mods & keep it. Smile.

If you have not, buy and STi. Attach same sensible mods. Smile a bit more.

Don't bother with a conversion.
