Re: Frank's 07 SWP STI -picture update

Welcome to my Journal.

Background:
I fell in love with the wrx back in 03 when my friend bought a brand new one and he took me for a ride and i knew that i would get one. Spring of 2010, i started looking around for a stock 07 sti with goldies. It took me a while to find the right one but i finally got hitched with a swp from Ramsey Subaru. Ramsey did a fantastic job helping me get my loan and setting everything up and (so far) they have been very mod friendly. I do pretty much all my work my self but i did recently blow out an axle seal and it was covered under warranty :tup:

Re: Frank's 07 SWP STI -EFI Tune 10/3/11

That backyard is too nice to be in Jersey City....lol

Nice car btw, knowing Ramsey they probably listed it at 25-28k depending on the miles it had...

That's at my parents house in Morris county. Downtown jersey city is all street parking.

Yeah they did list it a little high but I worked with them a bit. I was just happy to find exactly what I wanted in very good condition so I was glad to pay it.

Re: Frank's 07 SWP STI -EFI Tune 10/3/11



I didnt get a chance to post this yet. Things have been so crazy the past few weeks. I've been sick and moving. Hopefully i can get some more stuff up here in the next few weeks.

On another note, Chris tune it very conservatively, as its my DD. i'm sure i could get some more power out if it because i didnt have a heat shield on the turbo. I got my Perrin blanket today and will be installing tomorrow along with my DEI gold tape on my stock TMIC

Re: Frank's 07 SWP STI -EFI Tune 10/3/11

I have an '07 sti in spw myself! I had a '94 Miata right before I bought my STi, great choice of cars!

I was tuned at 276 hp / 303 tq, granted it was 103 degrees that day, I think I did pretty well.
I got mine tuned over at COBB in Austin, TX. I have heard EFI does great work.

I bought mine in NY, but I know where Ramsey is. I'm originally from NJ too, Palisades Park!

Just wanted to drop in to say hello =)

They are both a ton of fun to drive. I always have trouble choosing which one to take in the morning.

The miata needs a bit of work. As of a few weeks ago, I sprung an oil leak somewhere on the motor and it's really bad. The tranny is starting to go too so I'm considering a LS1 swap. It's pretty big money but it should be interesting.
