So lets start from the beginning..
First thing I ordered when I hit 7000km was Nameless performance muffler deletes and a K&N short ram. The intake in my opinion is not great. It sucks in too much hot air. The mufflers are pretty good. Nice sound, very aggressive. Not my pics but they are pretty much the same \/

Once that came I had a custom tune done through Romraider. I also then ordered a Cobb V2 access port and a Perrin recir by pass valve.
I was running those few things for a little while and then I decided I wanted more power. So I was talking to my tuner and he recommended that I get a Catless Invidia Downpipe. Once I got that I took off this piece of garbage \/


And put on this beauty \/


I got that tuned up and got 267whp and 307wtq on 91 Octane

The following day I picked my little brother up and we went out for something to eat. While I was parked I noticed my car let out a weird shake.. So I quickly turned the car off. Fearing it was the common issue with sti (blown ring land) I called my tuner. He told
Me to do a couple tests and see what the Cobb AP was saying. It was reading a misfire on cylinder 4. He told me to bring it in the next day. When I brought it in he begun to do a compression test. She was reading 52psi on cylinder 4 when I do believe it supposed to be around 120psi. He told me my ring land was gone. Seeing at this point it was almost time for snow I put the car away for winter. (We still use salt in Newfoundland so I will not drive my sti in that garbage)

When I took it out the following April I brought it to my tuner. The car at this point only had a little over 13,000km on the engine. We started to scrap it...



Tied up and pulling the engine \/

Going back in the engine bay!\/



And she's back in


My tuner took the engine out in a Thursday, taking his time (2 hrs) and Friday he started at 3pm and at 3am the next day or morning however you want to look at it I was on my way home. It was a pretty nervous drive home. I have now put on close to 17,000km and have had no issues.
