OK, this is a sad moment for me because I'm selling my beloved STI. My baby girl is currently 4.5 months old & I just acquired a family vehicle/tow vehicle, a Lincoln Navigator, wife does not like the idea of owning 4 cars for my self plus her car...I have no choice but to let the STI go.
I'm a meticulous owner, some members on this forum can second that.
My 2008 Dark Gray Metallic STI has 10K miles on the new motor, built by Cobb Tuning SoCal, Cobb has been the exclusive place I take my car to since owning this car. You can verify all service records with Cobb Tuning Socal.
Car currently has 83,000 miles on the odometer, 10K miles ago I went through an engine rebuilt with all upgraded forged internals. Although the new motor can take 500 whp easily I went with a conservative Stage 2 set up to maximize the longevity of the motor.
My STI was tuned by "Tim Bailey" at 6K miles on the new motor, 316 whp, 357 wtq on 95 Octane (19 psi) & 305 whp, 346 wtq on 91 Octane (18 psi). (I specifically asked Tim not to tune to the limit of the fuel, again, to maximize the longevity of the motor)
Detail upgrade list below:
10K miles on the new motor with the following internals:

I'm sure I missed something, but that's all I can think of at the moment, my STI did 1 wet track day & 1 dry track day since the motor rebuilt, car ran like a dream. Fresh oil every 3K miles & all services are up to date.
