Default 2008 Midnight Blue STi - AQ makes a comeback

Welcome to my new journal!

Whether we've chatted before or not, just want to let you know this car will definitely not be like the last one

This time around is going to be a much more DD car and budget-tight. I'm beginning to adult now, graduated and working full time now and from the looks of it... i'm around the corner from getting engaged

I found this 2008 STi on Kijiji a while ago and it piqued my curiosity and I ended up going to see it. Few hours later, I shook the dealer's hand for a conditional sale!

Later on that evening, I found the previous owner on Facebook and behold! He was actually a person I had previous sold my AC setup to! Cool, right?
We'll call him X - X told me the car was in an accident and insurance fixed everything... Additionally, they paid for a FULL FORGED BLOCK! ding ding ding.


Current car information:
2008 WRX STi in Midnight Blue Pearl (this is only the 2nd i've ever seen in my life)

AK2 forged long block from Lachute Performance
Exhaust manifold and up pipe by LP
LP high flow catted down pipe
Magnaflow quad rolled tip exhaust

The car NEEDS lots of love on the exterior, the paint is bad and it needs a few upkeep work.

I'll updating the journal as a I get it to be more of my car as time goes on

Thanks for stopping by my journal, I'm excited to be back as a regular on IWSTI.

So....bought a set of FA500 coil overs and new headlights coming my way as the previous owner sanded the inside of the lenses (inside of lenses is incredibly fragile and should never be touched)

Oops.

Fellas, I'm in search of a Tial hotside for a 30r garrett and a Tial 44mm waste gate.

Any help?
