I have an automatic 2000 Outback (all stock). I am new to the subaru family of vehicles and would like to get suggestions on relatively cheap performance and looks upgrades (both interior and exterior). My initial thoughts were basics with upgrading the air intake? Feel free to email me suggestions as well [email protected]

Its simple:

The intake is already as good as you can get. Its designed for free flow.
Depending on the look you want, raise or lower. There's plenty of info on this forum and a lot of ideas.
Same with the sound system. Depends on what you are looking for.
Wheels, dito.

Just check out the Gallery, electronics, etc.

Here's mine:

I replaced the McIntosh system with a Clarion DD Head unit, Polk Audio component speakers for the 4 doors, kept the factory tweeters just installed capacitors to kill the bass, Kicker 8" comp with a Sound Ordnance M1350 amp. All the cables are under the interior and I had to manufacture a harness to run from the HU to the speaker harness under the front seat. Yours will be easier. No factory amp. Crutchfield is a good low cost option for stereo equipment.

As for any "tuning", remote tuners are all over the place. I came to know Ed at Xtreme Racing Tuning pretty well. He's good people and modifies the mapping in Subaru ECMs for better performance and fuel economy. Click this link for info. If you correspond with Ed, tell him CarDoc sent you.

Good Luck.
