Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Shortly after the first mods began, but very simple mods. Perrin shorty antenna and HID fogs, and tint (35% all around), paikman donated some Rally Armor flaps to me and even put them on for me. <3

Next up was I needed to do something about my rear tails and grill.

A few cans of Krylon paint and a few hours later...






Brake lights and normal lights are still just as bright.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Today was the day for my first power mods, which I said I wouldn't do. lul

TurboXS down pipe with race pipe
Utec and tuned by TurboXS

I don't have any dyno plots or pictures of graphs or parts that went on the car, but thanks to Andrewtech and TurboXS I have a great running car. Andrewtech threw on a TurboXS down pipe and race pipe. Drove it straight over to TurboXS to get a tune. I didn't get a base line since we put on the down pipe first, but I believe they said a stock STI puts down about 250. After all the tuning was done I left with 318 hp and 353 tq, I'll have to get the graphs up soon. I was at peak torque at about 3100 rpm, first gear is stupid now.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Probably because I don't commute anywhere. Haha

I used to go to meets all the time, not so much anymore, haven't been to one in months.

Thanks, I was really looking at picking up a silver but there were none available at the time, DGM was my second choice but I'm glad I got it now.

The Utec is good. It's just like any other tuning software/hardware, with the option to log/watch real time maps and change maps on the go.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

ah ok, i though commuting was the "in" thing to do down here lol. I've had this car since the 1st of the year and have yet to see another GR owner. Plenty of smucks in civics though....sigh

I haven't been to car meets in years but figure i'd get out and get to know the local community lol. hope to see you guys this year!

Nah I don't work, that's why I don't have a commute. :) I've only seen a few around here it's a rare occurrence. I'm always out in the area though, mostly in Manassas.

whats the next mod planned?
I hate you.

I used the stained glass paint by Krylon. Yep I like the DP, heh just like any other dp, but 4" up top.
