bored with my fa5

after owning my car for two years, ive come to realize that im bored with it. i hate the squeaky clutch and bad third.

i switched to a blox knob and enjoyed that for a while..

i was considering trading it in for a wrx sedan.

give me some ideas to perk up my fa5. no turbo or cams, need to keep this emissions legal.

Stage 1 would be perfect for a DD....I recommend doing the simple I/H/E and flashpro combo. Other than that the WRX sedan are awesome and there are plenty of other options out there now as well. Good luck!!

Any car will get boring after a while if no moddii ng is done. I myself buy at least one mod a month. Small mods but it still keeps me in love with my car.

I live in Chicago, anything rwd sucks where I live. I had a v8 mustang 5spd horrible in the snow, even with snow tires. 400whp didn't help lol

Sell your car and buy a Dodge Magnum.

Lift it, put on some 24's, profit....

I had my Si sedan for 2 years. I never had the urge to mod it. I loved every second of it.

Sell it. Whatever you do to it, you'll likely get bored again.

I mean after owning a car for that long no matter what you own your going to get bored with it. I'm not sure what to say besides trade it in if you don't want to go boost.

you don't need to run exhaust/header.
Simple injen CAI is sufficient
perfect DD

Mod it or sell it and move onto something else. Life is short and a car is a car. No reason to keep it unless you are financially forced to.
