I'll post my experienceDon's 08 STI. STI Hatchback/Wagon or bust!
I did it because I just want options and pretty much set it and forget it. This will determine if I want to install a bigger turbo. So far, I find that going cat less and going equal length manifold helps with the turbo pull all the way to redline. I really hated how the this engine stops pulling after 5000 rpm in stock form. I'm used to revving to 7500-7700 rpm on Toyota engines.

Goodbye, Corsa. Welcome back, HKS! I went back to the Legamax, but the 75mm turbo back system. The Corsa got too loud once I went to a cat less downpipe. The HKS sound and quietness is what I've been looking for.

So far so good for the new exhaust. Very quiet and I don't feel paranoid of cops when I accelerate.

Denso sensors suck. Bosch is the way to go. Here I was thinking I was doing the right thing by replacing old sensors and to find out that Denso isn't what it used to be. I guess there was a reason why Toyota let them go. The A/F sensor is already failing and the MAF had to be rescaled significantly. Mistakes learned on the fly. Use OEM or something your tuner recommends/prefers.

That's what I don't get. It's probably why my fuel mileage tanked, big time. Very disappointing.
