Default 2007 Blue Diamond In Progress Subie BUILD # 3

History & Biography


I was born and raised in Miami, Florida all my life and have had a passion for Subaru from the moment i test drove my friends RS to the day i owned one my self. I have owned three Subaru's my entire life;



1. 1998 Impreza 2.5 RS (White) Second to own a true RHD Subaru.


2. 2006 GD STi (Gunmedal) First person in Miami to own one show room bought



and 3. 2007 GD STi (WRB).

I am a big fan of these cars and have a huge love for them. The SUBARU community is truly a family of individuals that share one common goal, the love we all have for these vehicles. I wish i could sit here and create a journal from start of my first Subie till now but one some of the pictures are Polaroids lol and two waaaaay to time consuming lol. So im going to be working on my latest project GD Subie. And i hope you will enjoy this Journey as much as i have creating it.

The car made 427whp/360torq @ 25psi But the MAF was maxed on the 73mm Intake and the Atmospheric HKS was giving reliability issues although Mikey Tuned it all down quit nicely to the above graph. Hence why I'm switching to Speed Density setup.
