What the car looked like the week I picked it up:




History:
Purchased the vehicle Dec 23rd 2010. Came with all sorts of factory bells and whistles, NAV, fog lights, BBS rims, all weather mats, titanium shift knob. Plus a full Cobb TBE, APR Carbon lip, RA mudflaps, and a Cobb AP. Was difficult to pass up with only 6k on the clock.
December 23, 2010 - Proud owner of a 2008 STI
February 2011 - AEM Intake and Stg2 /w CAI OTS loaded
April 2011 -New 2011 front end, and fresh SSM Paint. Debadged hatch only STI remaining.
October 2011 - IAG installs goodies then Jorge tunes and road tunes my car. Got to spend a good bit of time with him as we ironed out the lean spot in the +08's while driving around Westminster. He's a great guy! Put down 311awhp 376awtq. Scares me when it spools up. Also installed Nokya yellow 9005 and 9006 lights for the DRL/Highs and fog lights. Word to the wise, needed to use the original O-ring for the DRL/High beam lights as the ones shipped didn't want to fit.
December 2011 - Subaru Rain Guards for Christmas! As well as an AVIC-Z130BT headunit and JDM Bezel. GT Spec D-shaped Wheel installed
April 2012 - Installed Perrin FMIC picked up from another iwsti member. Black core and piping. Also installed Perrin Inlet
June 2012 - Painted roof black metallic by Vince's Body Shop in Randallstown MD. Continental DWS Tires installed by IAG Performance
July 2012 - Have backup camera installed by Westminster Speed and Sound as well as German Maestro Components front and coax rears, JL Audio Amp, and sound treated doors. Installed Whiteline Steering Rack bushings. Somehow I lost a mudflap =[
September 2012 - Fuel Regulator, Fuel Pump, Dom 1.5XTR 10cm Housing and Tune performed at IAG Performance by Jorge
April 2013 - Adjusted tune by IAG to correct some fueling issues, a few tweaks by Jorge and now 390whp. Spool is a little better too. Really enjoying what he did with the cam tables. Also added some Dynamat type stuff (Rattle Trap) inside the hatch to assist with the sub install coming up soon.
May 2013 - Installed JL Audio 10W0 subwoofer in an Audio Integrations box. Sounds stellar. I'm quite excited with the way the car sounds now.
June 2013 - OCAWD Meet! Met a lot of great Subaru people and had a blast.
September 2013 - Took the car to the drag stip and managed a best pass of 12.9 with a horrid launch, she has more in her but I don't think I'll get to it this year.
November 2013 - Car lost cylinder 4, at IAG for a rebuild
February 2014 - Rebuild complete. Hopefully I won't break anything again.
August 2018 - That didn't last long, transmission seems broken
October 2018 - Transmission entirely rebuilt by IAG. Everything but 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th gears replaced.
November 2018 - For Sale!

How the car sits now:

Dyno Day at a local shop, shame it was only 2wd so I didn't get to play. But a guy did manage to snap a couple pictures of the ride.

I have a body shop that makes miracles happen. Everything they sourced from my car came from all over the country. I'm so happy to almost have it back. Next couple of days I'll take a few pictures when I pick it up.

Good to see someone else did this too. I love my 08/11 hybrid! Now we are just effed because of the lack of aftermarket lips.

Yeah, I know. I am kind of partial to how the 2011 front looks w/o a lip on it for the moment. Contemplating coilovers, I'd destroy a lip if I dropped the car any.
