So, the time has come!

I've got the typical life story of a subaru fanboy

22b's and S201's bal bla bla

OMGS the WRX is in the states! bla bla bla


Finally!





Just off the truck!

2013 PBP 5 door. SPT cat back, SPT short throw, fancy rear view mirror and a shitty subwoofer. The dealer will be having a clearbra installed before I pick her up.

I live in North dakota, and the car is in Co. Springs waiting for me. Memorial day weekend will be the long haul!

What i am currently driving



I'm sure i'll miss the speed, but having a 35k$ car that sits in storage for 6 months out of the year is something I am no longer interested in.

More updates to come!​

so as far as the clearbra is concerned, beyond the hood and bumper, where else do you guys normally have it installed?

it's a tough pill to swallow going from 400+ whp/tq to the STi though for sure .. I don't need a ton of power to be happy, but it's noticeably slower, especially on the top end. here's to hoping stage 2 feels adequate in the future!

Warranty LOL



What can I say? LOVE the difference made EVERYWHERE in the power band. Off boost is a little less spongy, boost comes on stronger and faster and keeps pulling to redline. Money well spent as far as i am concerned.

Break in oil change!





RP 5w30 w/ a wix filter. I'll be sending in an oil analysis at around 3,000mi to see if a change is necessary.

999 miles on the clock!

Couple observations; WTF was Subaru thinking with that ridiculous headliner?!? Read up on a couple DIY's. Soon... Stock stereo blows. Seems to be getting faster as the miles rack up.

you are moving along pretty quick but you're thing things very necessary for the car imo, it's a different car on a good tune with a downpipe!

boy the fins on your intercooler sure got molested quickly for a 13' with no miles!
