Re: 2011 DGM STi





we pretty much brushed up the tune and logged...no knock whatsoever so I'm chilling at 21.5psi, I have my alpine type r's in now along with a 200watt 4ch amp to push them...deck goes in tomorrow because the stock unit is distorting the hell out of my tunes... I may or may not be in louisville this weekend and I'm definitely going to be at the meet at Cox's park in March with the KYSC crew so...car is probably making close to 320-325 wheel hp
That's always good news! You're like 15 steps ahead of me and I love the updates, can't wait until the meet....

Re: 2011 DGM STi

Well after 1,000's of videos, I have officially narrowed it down to Magnaflow -OR- Greddy Spectrum Elite. Anyone that has either of these have an opinion as to why one is better than the other? I like the look of the Greddy better but as far as I can tell from videos, the Magnaflow sounds amazing...

***Edit: I was PM'd some links to some very negative feedback on Magnaflow's CBE. Even if I end up spending the extra $ on the Greddy, I'm sure I won't be dissapointed either way. Thanks for the feedback!

I definitely will! I couldn't find any pictures either, but Jason @ Nameless Performance assured me it's amazing. It was supposed to ship out last week, but hasn't as of this afternoon. Anxiously waiting.... I can't wait to hear my car a little bit more haha

Hey! I'm in Louisville too. What is the meet? I've seen you around town!
Mine is '11 HB black, tinted. The car is a ton of fun and my wife is now making excuses to hit the grocery. Ha! I put the SMY cluster pod in last week with turbo and EGT gauge.
Invidia 3" downpipe, cobb CAI, stage 2+ CAI. Running stock catback since I'm like you..... 8 million videos per week. Mostly looking at Greddy spectrum elite, Maddad street series and whisper, Blitz nur spec R. It's a disease watching these vids!

Re: 2011 DGM STi

nice. That's a great sounding exhaust. Can't wait for the photos and the video.

I'm thinking of the invidia Q300 or the Harman Motive. Heard lots of good things about the HM on this forum.

btw, I signed up for a track day the first Sunday of April. Should be fun :D. I've got a goPro camera now so I'll try to get some good videos.

The meet is Sunday March 27th at Cox's park by the river, you should definitely go! Was that you on Lyndon Ln last night? I was almost home and then I saw a black STi take off from the stopsign and followed for a bit haha. I don't see any around here- in the last 4 months I've seen a DGM hatch that looks just like mine with the silver BBS's and the black one (you?) last night.
Sounds like you've got a great jump on me mod-wise! Do you like the Invidia dp? I LOVE the Greddy SE look and sound and had one reserved for a few days, but ended up passing because I read a bunch of reviews that said it droned on the highway at any speed over 65mph. I put 350-400 miles on per week and just couldn't deal with any drone, I'd go nuts! The one I ordered supposedly is loud when you get on it but sounds stock when cruising. IT NEEDS TO GET HERE ASAP!
Shoot me a pm with your # if you ever want to go cruise some backroads on a weekend

Both would be a great choice- I heard the Harman is super loud, so if that's what you're going for, definitely get that one! Let me know how the track day goes, I'll do one eventually, I just want to have more done to my car by the time I sign up. GoPro is great, I had one for my '07 R6 and mounted up front. Got some good footage of the Dragon @ Deals Gap in NC

Re: 2011 DGM STi

Also, they didn't have one in hatch version, but I got this awesome poster for my garage that I know some of you would probably like to order. HUGE 24" x 62". Looks really clear/crisp in person- sorry for the crappy phone pic:


(Yes, I did paint my garage Harley Davidson orange haha. No regrets... I also made a cutout stencil of the STi logo and spray painted it on the other side. Will have to take a pic of it)

Re: 2011 DGM STi

FROM Board Message

"That's right kids,come one come all, it's time to get this meet season started. I know some of use are going to Cincy on Sat, but we decided that we where also going to have our kick off meet on Sunday with dinner to follow at Fiesta Time. Meet will start at 2pm this year and is open to all who want to come and hang out and have fun.

Update for the Louisville crew:

Anyone that wants to convoy in to Tom Sawyer State Park, meet up at the Ashley Furniture around 1pm and you guys will leave around 130, to head to the park. Anybody that is closer to the park, then go ahead and just head on over to the park if you want to.

Ashley Furniture
11521 Bluegrass Pkwy
Jeffersontown, KY 40299

Final Update: Meet has been moved to Tom Sawyer State Park due to heaving flooding and Cox's Park being closed. So only the meeting place has changed.

Address for the Tom Sawyer State Park

E. P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park
3000 Freys Hill Road
Louisville, KY 40241-2132 "



MEET LOCATION HAS CHANGED! Just wanted to let anyone from Louisville know... See everyone Sunday

Re: 2011 DGM STi

Another Subie has joined the garage as of last night... '11 Impreza 4-dr. 5.5 miles on her when it left the lot!

When we picked her up- gas tank full and all shined up


Earlier in the day when I went to iron out all the details... They look good next to each other haha. Still had the protective plastics on, as it had just come in off the transport truck

Re: 2011 DGM STi: Nameless Performance Axle-Back installed. Post #58

^nice. wow...your stock muffler got some serious rust on it already. They use salt on your roads?

The Nameless muffler is like the Harman Motive catback I bought (used). It uses the same Magnaflow muffler. I'll be installing it tomorrow afternoon.

lol @ our parallel-ness.

Nice! How's it sound? Stock downpipe and midpipe? See you tomorrow so I guess I'll hear it in person! Ha! Yep, our brine does some quick work on the underbody of our cars here in Louisville.
