Update 2/24/2017

Car has 1000 miles on the new engine. It has really good oil pressure this far, I don't see any smoke, and it's not eating any oil. So all signs are looking good for it to be a strong motor for future beatings. Tune is scheduled for 3/6/2017. Most after market parts have been put on hold, or changed up to save cost for some future business opportunities.

Update 2/9/2017

And the car is back. has a few little things that need buttoned up. But I'm happy she is back and running and being a boss.

Updat2/3/2017

Car is at my tuners!! 8 months have lead up to this.



----------------------------------------

Finally, the time has come for me to create a build thread since I have more than a few modifications. So I have come to the point to build my motor. I went through one engine at 22k miles while completely stock. Ring land failure. Fortunately warranty covered it. But now, at 52k miles, I have two spun bearings(3 and 4).



Car has been down since June 2016, but I'm currently in the works of getting everything together. The list below will be organized like most peoples threads. Current, ordered, future purchases, etc, you get the point.

Background: I stalked the forums for about a year before I decided that I really wanted an STI. I put my order in for an STI limited SWP, sun roof, and nav in around February, and picked it up June 6, 2013. It was a horrible, horrible wait. But it happened!



First day:

There is something about the simple, limited wheels / wingless look that I love about your car.. Possibly making me think about going wingless on mine.

Great looking subie! Definitely will follow your build.

Thanks for the love. I think going wingless with the ts rear lip is my favorite mod visually. The wing is just too much for me. Bassler's ZE40 setup on his car has already swooned me into buying that setup in the spring. haha

Check out Speedhut.com, you can customize anything you want. Luckily enough I have friends that work there so I get some parts for a bit cheaper than the Average Joe.

No, it's pretty much stock with the exception of a wrinkle red AEM intake. Motor is getting pulled this weekend and the new IAG stage 2 is getting put in when I get the heads back from the machine shop. Should get the stuff in red above anytime this week.

I may just have to go that route as well with that lip. And +1 as well to those speedhut gauges, they are awesome looking. I've been trying to find a good alternative to having to dish out the cash for DEFI's and might go that route too.

Are you planning to go with a bigger or rotated turbo setup when you have your engine in? I'm dropping mine off this week to get my stage 2 built block in and am torn between stock location or just saving up and going rotated.
