Onto the Car:
I initially pre purchased the car at the end off 2003 so I have been in the seen for a bit now, I have always been a Subaru fan through all the WRC events when they used to always broad cast them on SPEED channel. When the STi arrived in 2004 I knew that I had to have one. I picked up the STi on the delivery day that it was arriving at the dealership straight off the truck with less than 1 mile on the block no radio, speakers, no lighter then you just have to tell yourself this is no luxury box it’s a straight rally inspired beast. I even took off work that day so I could enjoy the rest of the day with her gallivanting around working on the break in period. Now this was way before the Suby bug hit MD, for the first 2yrs it seemed like I was the only one with a STi. I always kept a keen eye open to see if I could spot others but never did, now…..It is like one big sweet suby convention!
Onto the car, never ending mod list so far and pictures to boot then we will move on to future mods. I did all the install bits myself except for the tuning, fab, and install of the CIA and snail swap, Thanks to Agile Auto for the all its help on this project as well. Hill & Annie, Brian, Joe,Adam (My Engine Builder)and all my other homies at agile.

Re: 04STiGuys Platinum Silver Metallic 2004 STi

Thanks for the compliments guys. Just bought a second vehicle for work so I can keep the mileage off her. Got a Jeep Wrangler 4.0ltr. 3 1/2"lifted with some MT 33" super swampers so I guess you can say its a work/play vehicle...:lol:

Re: 04STiGuys Platinum Silver Metallic 2004 STi

Planing out the suspension set up as of now;), Some KW V3's with rear seat adjusters(planning on going GT-R concave soon) with fenders rolled, front and rear camber plates, front and rear sway with front and rear sway endlinks(already have the rears) going to probably through a KOYO rad in her also and maybe have the throttle body re machined by Proflow. So I will have some RS*R Ti2000 springs up for grabs here soon with stock struts(no strut clunk in any of them).

Re: 04STiGuys Platinum Silver Metallic 2004 STi

450 hp? wow umm whats ur trap speed?
I unfortunately have yet to take it to the track, this past yr and a half has been pretty rough family wise and it has cut much time for me to play with her but things are slowly staring to progress. I am going to try to get her up to the track some time this month if I am lucky:rolleyes:, the lady friend has been begging me. I have the dyno sheets but just have to have Hill email me them or I can just scan the sheet and post them up most likely tonight or tomorrow. As for fast, she pulls like a mule on steriods and is as smooth as silk through out the power band, I'll get those dyno sheets up;).

Changed the engine bay set up a bit today, I installed a Braille 11lbs. light weight race battery. I also moved my catch can next to the fire wall and re routed the blow by hoses to it. New pics coming up!

Re: 04STiGuys Platinum Silver Metallic 2004 STi

Very well done! Couple of questions:

1. Where did you get the CF Side Vent Rings from?
2. What kind of paint did you use on the oil dipstick, etc? VHT Crinkle Red? Application method?

Thanks!
