I will have pictures of the car and all of the installs here in about a month or so when I get settled in at my new house in California.

brapp, it has been a great car so far. I do miss the amount of space I had in my last hatchback, but I've been telling myself that I was going to buy an 06-07 STI since around 2010. Just glad I was able to get one that was stock and low mileage too.

Default Re: Mr. Apple's 06 WRB STI Timeline -- My Wing Fell Off!!

Found a local guy that wanted to swap trunks. We've been in contact for the last 4 months or so while I was still in Korea. Made it home this weekend and got the trunks swapped over yesterday. Didn't have a whole lot of time to take any pictures due to heading to the inlaws' house shortly after but I'll snap some when I go out to work on the car in a few hours when it is day light.

The wingless look is clean, does your car have the roof vane spoiler?

As much as I love the look of an STI with a wingless trunk and the roof spoiler, unfortunately I do not have one.. If it didn't call for drilling into the roofline of the car I would probably install one but watching Anthony Do (Youtube) do his scared me away from it.

The wife, kids, dog and I all made it to California on Wendesday afternoon. After one long weekend in a tiny hotel, we finally found a house. We move in this coming weekend. Best part of getting the house is that I get to setup my garage and tinker with all of my new parts and my old 1/8 scale RC Cars too.

Installed the Perrin Turbo Inlet Pipe today. Such a massive pain in the ass to get the hose in under the intake manifold, I couldn't imagine trying to get a 3'' stock location inlet in there. Also did a few other things while I was under the hood...
- Perrin Pitch Stop Mount
- Perrin Recirculating BPV
- Painted the STI Stencil on the GrimmSpeed TMIC
- Perrin Master Cylinder Brace

Also found out either the dealership that I bought the car from or the previous owner swapped in a Tomioka Racing 16G Turbo (TR-TS1002), so that was a bit of a surprise to see..
