Here's where I am now:



Here’s how it all started:

I previously owned a '02 Subaru 2.5 RS. I was pretty happy with the car, but I was talking to a coworker of mine to source a WRXengine that his shop had for a customer. I had been planning to do an engine and tranny swap and make the car a sleeper. The car had: JDM headlights, Injen CAI, Greddy Evo2 CBE, Stoptech BBK, rear slotted rotors, and TEIN SS coilovers. My friend worked at Avenue Sound in Long Island, so I had them put in a JBL 12" sub and an Alpine amp. I later bought an Alpine head unit and ipod kit. For wheels and tires I had a set of Enkei RPF1s 17x8 for the winter and Advan RGIIs 17x8 on Falken 452s for the summer. My first set of wheels and tires were 18x8 Rota P45Fs on Falken Ziex 512s, but they were too heavy and with the way I was driving I went through brake pads too quickly. Had a tree not fallen on my car, I'd probably still have my bugeye. After they took the branches off the car, I was finally able to assess the damage. When I saw how bad the roof had been caved in, I knew I had to start my search for a new car.

When searching for a new car I figured I'd stick with either a '02 or '03 bugeye, so I could keep my headlights. I also wanted to go with a wagon to avoid being bothered by cops in the area. I found one, but it had just been sold. The salesman told me of another Subaru on the lot so I checked it out. I asked for the keys and started her up. The car only had 19,012 miles when I got there. I checked to see if it looked like the car was modded, and it looked fine. It had a 8” sub in the back, 2 amps, speakers, and a pioneer head unit. The only problems I saw were it came with these bumper guards that were hiding some scratches on the rear bumper and I could also see a groove in the left front rotor. I figured it was something I could get painted and changed. After working out a deal with my parents to help pay for the car, I put the deposit down on July 6th and picked it up July 11th.

Updated 8.30.10

I got retuned without meth after having a few problems with the meth kit. I dealt with a lot of problems with the line staying connected and knowing whether or not it was spraying meth, so I decided to get a retune after seeing that EFI Logics was having a tuning sale for the end of the summer. The car is now at 328 whp and 356 wtq on EFI's Mustang Dyno and still feels great.

Here's the new dyno sheet:

Update:

JDM Rain Visors installed last Sunday. It was a pretty simple install with the help of my little brother. I'll post pics when I take some pics of the car. It's been raining the past few days so I haven't been able to get the car clean. There's also some tree sap that go onto my trunk from stuff dropping onto the car, so I'll try to get that cleaned up this weekend.

I found a great deal on equal length headers on SQC-NY :: Site :: Forums. I'm supposed to pick it up tonight. I'll get it installed when my APS TBE comes in.

Nice upgrade, from RS to STi. Congratulations and welcome to the site!

If you're doing headers and TBE you should do the uppipe too. A lot of discussion here recently in the Engine, Power and Performance tech section. Check it out.
