Officer Buzzkillington of the Center Line Police department pulled me over this morning because i rolled though a yellow light. He then told me that a yellow light means I am legally required to stop , Which is false as it just means that you are supposed to slow down and use caution. It was in a 45 mph zone and locking up my brakes would have been dangerous for whoever was behind me due to them most likely not having brembos and RE11s to slow them down.
He wrote me up for running a red light so we have a court date coming up , Also said I was flying away from him.... so apparently 4800rpm in second gear on V7 Spec C RA six speed is flying away from him at around 40mph.
Another wonderful case of Michigan Police efficiency
I think I have finally decided on a path to take for this build. So many people are going for insane amounts of power with these cars that they are running into reliability problems.
I have decided to basically make an RA-R wagon
This car was fitted with almost every part out of the STi Japan parts box , Spherical bushings in the rear trailing arms , VF42 twin scroll ball bearing turbocharger , adjustable struts and so much more.
It made around 320bhp and 318ftlbs of torque , I think it was under rated from the factory like many cars of its time.
It was a car that you could drive to work on a Monday after taking it to the track on the weekend. It was in my opinion one of the best STi's ever made.
i considered going for a build revolving around a 3076. however, the amount of money and work you spend yield little in a sense compared to the reliability and power you will make. im going to have to build something else if i ever go on a power quest. power mods are done for me.
Many of you know me and that I recently sold my '05 STi which I owned for nearly 10 years. It was a great car and I had a ton of fun building it into my dream, but it was time to upgrade. I picked up a C63S coupe about a month back and I figured I'd start a journal here. I plan to modify and...

This will be my first online build. It's in Non-Subaru for a reason :)
Variance become immemorialized (yeah that's the term they use) on Dec 28 forty five days from today it becomes incontestable.
Planning on having site prep completed by then.
Project Introduction: We're building a Subaru to challenge the current land speed record.
No matter what language you speak there is one word synonymous with pure unadulterated speed, and that word is Bonneville. The historic Bonneville...
