Random and way old but on the topic of going wingless. Did you buy a WRX trunk from a dealer and have them paint it? I'm looking to go wingless too and would like to know the details of what all exactly you needed to buy. I think I read you just literally need the trunk, can swap over the opener, etc. And then removing one of the torsion bars prevents "deadly trunk launcher?"

this popped up on my subscriptions so i'll weigh in as someone that has swapped to wingless. What you say makes sense, but would not be cheap between the trunk, prep/paint, any badging you may want, etc. I see $423 for just the lid. I'd also suggest buying the correct torsion bars instead of just removing one so that you have relatively equal pressure on both arms. you can swap over the hardware, liner, etc

I bought the lid piece and torsion bars, had the lid painted, and all the hardware/wires/lights/etc switched over.

Strongly suggest getting the correct torsion bars.

It was the very first mod I did, and was not cheap, set me back about $700-$800 if I remember correct. Got most of it back when I sold the STI trunk+spoiler

Great looking car, normally I'm not a fan of black but it is very well kept.

Why thank you

And you might not think it is so well kept at this very moment, caked in salt and dirt after a Montreal snow storm. In the summer the clean obp looks so nice. Kills me to not have it clean as f*ck, but whats the point when I get it washed and its dirty again in 30min or less. (I still wash it twice a week in the winter. OCD like that )

Default Re: Stealth-baru! 2012 OBP Wingless STI: SMY Push Start Review

Ok, so ordered most of my items for the suspension/tire/bushing upgrade in April.

Thank you to T3h_Clap, you are one very knowledgeable, classy guy to have walked me through what to buy and why, in order to realize a proper suspension/tire upgrade:

Here is what is on its way so far:

-Group N Subaru 6-Speed Transmission Mount
-Group N Subaru Engine Mount Set
-Kartboy Engine Pitch Stop Mount
-Swift Spec-R Springs - 2008-2013 Subaru WRX STi
-Whiteline BSF39XZ 24mm Adjustable Front Sway Bar - 2008-2013 Subaru WRX STi
-Whiteline BSR49XZ 22mm Adjustable Rear Sway Bar - 2008-2013 Subaru WRX STi
-Whiteline KCA409 Front Com C Strut Mounts - 2008-2014 Subaru WRX STi
-Whiteline KDT901 Positive Shift Kit - 2008-2013 Subaru WRX STi

Still debating which endlinks to get (kartboy vs Avo vs Whiteline adjustable)

And the piece de resistance:

-Weds Sa-15r Gunmetal black/bronze 18x9.5 (5x114.3) +38 offset (accompanied by a rolling of the rear fenders) to be paired with potenza re-11 (265/35/18)



Will also probably order the grillcraft lower grill piece, to go with the ht auto sport grill (that will hopefully fit this time), and scoop grill that is already installed.

Might also replace my TWM short throw, since the reverse lock rattle cannot be eliminated (after tries by the dealership, lachute performance, TWM, and myself). It is driving me coco bananas.

Haha I know what you mean. When mine gets filthy I tell myself it's not worth all the trouble to clean it up again. Then when it's clean I see how great it looks and I change my tune.
