Perrin crank pulley. (rpms climb quicker, car feels lighter)
TurboXS shorty intake w/ K&N Typhoon filter.(8-10hp gain)
Both simple mods and very happy with both.

O boy... ;)

Perrin Inlet Hose - Increased hp due to more air flow/smoother movement :) raised psi by tiny if at all
Perrin SRI (Short Ram Intake) - Increased hp/tq due to more air and less restrictive filter. Probably little to no gain in psi.
Perrin Catch Can - Used to keep your intake/intercooler/turbo/etc clean by routing the pcv and one other spot (forgot the names - brain fart).
Perrin Crank Pulley - Less rotating mass on the engine. Faster revs and imo more hp lol, but we dont wanna go there again ;).
Perrin Radiator Shroud - For looks, doesnt block air from going over radiator like most shrouds
Whiteline Diff Bushings - Gets rid of the clunks and keeps your differential from "floating"
StaticX Grounding Kit - Very stable electrical system, smooth idle, more hp/tq, better mpg, etc etc etc
STI Strut Bars (Front and Rear) - Stiffens the chassis up pretty good
Blitz SBC-ID III - Extremely nice boost controller. I could go on for days about it, but in a nutshell.. its very accurate and quick to spool up. Has a ton of good features and is the best out there.
GodSpeed Downpipe - Huge difference, especially in top end. Catless and will give a huge gain in power.
GTSpec 3 headers (on order) - Should be a good torque gain. I will be ordering one whenever the header test is finished (by ds1)
Blitz nur spec R - Ordered today, more top end power and less back pressure. To me I love how it feels *I owned one previously* as everything is smooth and no where near as notchy as with the stock catback. Ported the wastegate some so boost creep shouldnt be a problem.
Cusco full sway bar set and GT Spec endlinks - should help steering and stability by a lot. I will be ordering these tomorrow. :)

Hope this helps, my link in my sig will provide you more info too (cardomain).

sound system: allows me to drive more aggressively due to mood enhancing audio stimulation
pink "i" badge: enhances weight distribution, and transmits an aerial signal whenever i'm in trouble
staticx ground kit: not in car yet, but i have it hooked up to my microwave and popcorn pops much quicker and there is no butter burn
air freshener: vanilla scented, supposedly it brings in the ladies!

I havent regretted a mod I've done. My first mods were the strut bars and whiteline differential bushings. I put them on. Then I did the short ram and catch can. I got my mechanic to put on the crank pulley. ETc... You can pm me if you want and I go into big detail of each mod. I was just keeping it simple up there :).

On the Fumoto Valve..

Does it drain slow like the FRAM drain valve from Walmart?
I know FRAM does not carry one for Subaru.
