Arrow Function, Form & Balance - 5 Years In The Making...

Hey All,

My name is Chris Walker; I wanted to share the results of my five year long STi build, while concurrently reintroducing both my STi and I to the IWSTI community.

Kinda sad that you are parting it out.

It's alright, I'm hoping to start a '13 Subaru STi project, after I sell my '07.

The build did come out great. I can't believe you could part with it now after all of that hard work is behind you.

Thank you, I really appreciate the support; it's not too common these days to see builds that have actual direction and aren't just a mess of random parts.

It's quite painful parting the car out, so much time/energy/money invested, but it's on to bigger and better things.

With the progressive trend that the JDM oriented cars have been shifting towards (knock-off everything), it's probably best to leave now anyways.

The mass influx of knock-off parts and the overwhelming support they've received, from "enthusiasts," is simply disheartening.

This is the best shot I've got of the dash, it's a little older though.
