So here she is. In 2003, a friend of mine got a brand new 2.5RS as a birthday present while they were still in High School. Not gonna lie, I was kinda jealous. It was an awesome looking car. (And had way more balls than my 96 Eclipse RS) That was the point I became turned on to Subaru. I figured, "If this is a bottom end Impreza, I wonder what an STi must feel like". Oh little did i know then.. Fast forward to June 2009 on deployment under the ocean somewhere.

A bored friend of mine decides he doesnt want his payments anymore and will sell the car for what he owes. $24500. Unfortunately, I dont want to spend that kind of money so I offer up my 2001 Jeep Cherokee as a trade and he comes back with $16000. Thus begun my STi adventure.

So slowly but surely I'm getting into this modifying scene and learning what this car can really do. If at any point anyone has any recommendations, I am more than willing to listen.

Nice car. Thanks for serving our country. I don't consider them mods, I like to call them improvements!

Its been a while guys. Sorry for the lack of progress on the build, but with HB Speed shutting its doors and COBB Tuning SoCal not opening before I left, everything kinda came to a halt. Now I have moved back to the East Coast and after I finish closing on my house, I can turn the focus back to the toys. I've recently been in contact with the gentlemen at EFI Logics and I think it's a safe bet that things will be getting underway here in the next few months. I'll do my best to keep you updated throughout the process.

Since my last post, someone thought it'd be a great idea to try to steal my front bumper. All they got was the lip spoiler and the fog light covers / vent inserts off the bumper. In doing so, the pulled the front bumper off to the headlights and broke off the clips. The inner wheel well mud guards were broken and cut out. Wheel wells are replaced. Body kit is being considered... $250 for stock front bumper $250 for inserts + paint for all... might as well go aftermarket.

Beautiful car!!! Alos, thank you for your service


My front bumper also has a few issues I am working out, I am also consider aftermarket but I need to wait till fall before I have the money. My 06 is going to get a full wide body overhaul!! This is definitely going to hurt the wallet

APS FMIC arrived today with hardware. Pipes should be here tomorrow. Damn UPS! Pictures to follow.

And since I was lucky enough to catch a screw in my driver rear tire and a nail in my passenger rear tire in the same day, I am considering going wider on the tires come the spring time. I was looking at the Rota G-Force 18x9 5x114.3 +30 with some 255/35R18's and some KW Variant 1 Coilovers to support.

Anybody have any experience with this kind of setup? Am I asking for trouble, or would a good alignment handle it. Fender rolling/pulling? I've read up on it a bunch and it seems like at this size tire.. it's all just a game of luck. Some guys can pull it off stock, others have major mods to do.

All the parts have been installed by EFI. I pick her up today at noon so pictures will follow. Only problems I ran into at the shop were that my clutch (Spec Stage 1) caused a bunch of tiny stress cracks in my flywheel making it unusable. (Not really sure how that happens. I thought the clutch was the wear product here...) And my meth pump and line need to be replaced as they are running inconsistiently. SO for now, I will just get a 93 tune to get her home. The meth pump and line are on order so stand by for future re tune with meth!

For your viewing pleasure:
