Hello IWSTI members. Welcome to my journal. Some quick history for those that don't know. I started out in the suby world in 2003 with a stock psm wrx sedan. After six months, I was the victim of a hit and run, which totaled this wrx. Left with an "unfinished" feeling, I picked up another bugeye sedan in wrb. I spent nearly two years with this car. I paid it off and was left with a decision of continue to mod it or part it and move on. I chose the latter and ended up with an 04 STi. Heres my mod list.. updated 4/21/11

Hey, I wasn't "tuned" by swift. They just hosted a dyno day, so I put the sti on to see what I was putting down. They are a great bunch of guys to deal with tho. Give them a call and see what they can do for you.
