Default 08 Red STI & Evo 9 - GT35R, Lots of CF & Advan 18x10's!!

Updated 7/7/11 with new mods.

UPDATED 7/4/09: Alright so, decided to merge this into a 2-FOR-1 SUPER SPECIAL Journal 08 STI and Evo 9!!

2008 Lightening Red STI
Date purchased: 7/4/08 @ Eastside Subaru in Kirkland, WA - good deal and they give free oil changes/loaner cars for life.

2008 STI w/Nav, BBS silver wheels, subwoofer, homelink rearview mirror, shock sensor alarm and all weather floor mats.


Round One Mods: 3-13-09 @ Surgeline Tuning in Portland, OR

Round One Power Results: 293 HP 337 Ft-Lb Torque
Dyno: Mustang Dynamometer
Outside Temp: ~50 degrees

Tim Bailey put together another map at 19psi but HP stayed about the same and torque went up 15 ft-lb so decided to run the more conservative map most often. They didn't run a baseline on my car but other stock 08's have been putting down between 220-230 HP and 250 ft-lb torque on their dyno so the mods were good for 63-73hp+ and close to 100+ ft-lb torque. Really happy withe power output, delivery and handling. From the dyno chart (i'll post later when I can get is scanned), the power delivery is extremely smooth and accelaration is just as smooth.

Thanks guys - hoping things pan out as well too. If you guys see anything that looks awesome (exterior, interior or performance) - feel free to make suggestions. Really want the car to a top performer all around w/out sacrificing driveability, etc. My buddy has a 08 C63 AMG, so he's at the top of the list when we got on the track this spring. He might have me beat straight line but the corners are mine.

about a 1/2" from the tires. Cusco's are a little stiffer than stock on the softest setting and get much more stiff as you adjust up. Aside from Japanese only manuals that I can't read and need translating software really happy with them.

Just put in the order for replica CS Carbon Fiber lip kit - should be in next week and installed by Friday. I'll take pictures and post the installation process for those who are interested.

Looking to order a Varis CF Hood and in a month or so, 18x9 Black or Gunmetal Wheels - any suggestions?

Just received CF CS Replica Lip Kit today and will be installing on Thursday or Friday at my brother's shop. Once I refigure out how to upload images, I will!

Will do a post on the install but looks like it will be pretty straight forward. Red on Black and CF is just delicious!
