Sounds right

Sounds like what I'm looking for. I'm just looking for a little better performance. Where is a good place to look for used SVT headers? Also, I hear on this forum that I would need to replace other parts to fit the SVT header in my ZX3.

Would I get the benefit of the SVT headers without replacing the exhaust? Or vice versa? Also, any point in an upgraded cat-back exhaust or is that just going to change the sound only.

I'll check out your link for a tuner, which is probably where I'll start. That was the only mod I did to my 07 WRX and it made all the difference.

What's your feeling about performance clutch? I haven't heard anyone mention that upgrade on this site. The factory clutch seems adequate but I'm just curious.

This will net you an honest 20HP+ to the wheels and feel like a new car
