Re: 2011 pearl white STI hatch. 400/420 @ AWD.

I plan to keep this second post updated with some recent work:

This past weekend I pulled the front axles due to a vibration when accelerating at high speed. A local shop rebuilt the axles (passenger side was bad) and I am going to put them in this weekend. Fingers crossed the vibration is gone. Side note: if you are pulling the axles and it is stuck in the hub, rent a tool to push it out from autozone.




Last month I re-did my suspension setup adding multiple bushings, cygnus coils, and roll center adjustment. Lot's of hours, two injured helpers, and tons of grease later.. It feels fantastic on the road.





Carbon driveshaft was a quick, easy mod that brings joy to every drive.

Forgot to list R205 badges on your list ( if that's what they are ).

Greddy SE has always been my favorite exhaust, I had it on my '08 Accord .. definitely the highest quality tipped exhaust out there.

Isn't it better to upgrade at least fuel pump when going EWG?

Welcome Kevin, nice to see more 2011 Hatches poppin up! Your car is tastefully modded I'm liking it! I just received my set of Cusco rear control arms and trailing rods. I ended up going with all Cusco on my suspension. Now I'm just waiting for the Zero 2e coils and Econ controller to get here.

I have never heard anything saying you need to or have to. Im sure I could benefit from it, however, until I do more motor work I dont think I need it! may be wrong tho! Let me know.

Re: 2011 pearl white STI hatch. 300/320 @ AWD.

stock fuel pump is fine with stock injectors. I found my car at 100% IDC at stage 2. So i upgrade to 750cc injectors and 265lph fuel pump.

i have very similar mods to you. The only variations are my turboback is catless, i have a gs ebcs and bigger injectors and pump. Whats your Injector duty cycle at?

I really want to get it to right about where you are at! Just knew that I would not have the money for quite some time. I had the car tuned and did not ask. So I am not sure..

I did them. But if you ask bluebat.. if thats where you got them, then he can find a place near you.
