Hey everyone, i have actually been kinda lurkin around IWSTI for a while now just admiring everyones rides until i FINALLY got mine the other day. I previously had an 05 RS...the difference is literally unbelievable. No mods yet, but I will be starting a journal hopefully within the next few months after the break in period.

I came from a RX-8. Incredible differnce, but also some loss . Missed the 9000+ rpm redline. Didn't miss the lack of torque.

Haha, thanks for the warm welcome guys. As far as mods go (for now) im gonna keep it pretty strait forward and simple. Starting out im probably going to run with:

- of course, tint
- de-badging
- possibly switch out 07's with 05 tails
- turbo gauges
- HKS intake, BOV and exhaust
- Helix DNA coilovers
- V-ltd. front lip
- front and rear struts
- rear diffuser

That is about it... pretty basic. Trust me though, it will start to build off that more and more very soon. I am open to any suggestions you guys have toward what might be better/top manufacturers etc. Thanks again for the welcome.:D

Re: Finally... (Update)

Wuttup guys, i have had my sti for a little over a month now...so far, only cosmetics. I will be updating again pretty soon with performance mods. Let me know what you think:


JDM tails, brakes on

JDM tails, running

random

dark, but still looks nice

my little nephew gave me this out of his coloring/sticker book...i had to give him a bunch of pennies for it haha


these are the 05's from the 2.5rs i had

Great looking car!

Try and stay away from the HKS BOV, it will actually hurt your car. Searching is your friend. The cat-backs arent bad but invest in a better downpipe, the HKS downpipe is essentially a stock downpipe with no cat. As far as the intake try and go with APS, and not HKS.

'05crystal, i appreciate your feedback man...yeah i have heard from a bunch of other people now that a BOV isnt an sti's best friend...i will def be staying away. I am going to look into your suggestions as far as performance mods go, i am still not sure what to get at this point. if anyone else has any suggestions i am open. Thanks
