Since we have this......Hello

I am not a new member, but since I never really got to introduce myself to everyone before I thought that I would give it a shot. Plus I love whoring pics of my car out.

I am an MRI Tech from around Pittsburgh in Western Pa. I regularly try to hit up the Flashlight drags that they have around here and I am going to try to get to a couple of Auto Cross events this summer.

I have a 2004 WRX that had some work done to it before I got it. The dealership wasn't even sure. I bought it last October 2005 with about 12K miles:



What I knew it had so far:
Eibach Springs
Cobb AccessPORT
Helix Downpipe
Blitz NUR-Spec Catback
Rota Torques
GReddy Timer

I had to reinstall the exhaust cause the dealership convinced me to let them put the factory exhaust back on. What a mistake!!! When I did my exhaust swap I found that the previous owner had done a turbo swap as well and installed a VF30 with STi pinks

Fast forward to now. Here it is:





The Rotas are in storage and the stockers with snow tires are on for the winter.

Got to the drag strip to mess around some before I got tuned. This was the best run:

I suck at launching or the times would have been better. It was my first time at the track.

UPDATE

In October I got a Protune and ended up with 310 whp and 275 wtq on a Dynapak.


Current modifications:
Performance Mods:
Agile Automotive Protune
Cobb AccessPORT
Cobb SF Intake
GM Boost Solenoid
Go Fast Bits Power Pulley Set
Go Fast Bits Stealth FX BOV
GReddy Evo2 Catback
Helix Downpipe
IHI VF30 Turbo
NGK Iridium One Step Colder Spark Plugs
Perrin Uppipe
STi Pink Injectors
TurboXS Topmounted Intercooler

Driveline Mods:
Go Fast Bits Adjustable Short Shifter
GReddy Counterweighted Shift Knob

Suspension Mods:
Custom Alignment
Eibach Pro Kit Springs
Hotchkis Front and Rear Sway Bars
Kartboy Front and Rear Endlinks
Whiteline Sport ALK

Exterior Mods:
Debadged Rear Decklid
Hella Supertone Horns
JDM Grill
Perrin Radiator Shroud
Seibon Carbon Fiber STi Hood Scoop
STi Fog Covers
Tein Hood Dampers

Audio/Electronics:
MattJK Screen
JVC DVD/CD Player

Wheels:
Rota Torques

That's about all I have for now. Later.

Back in September the bug to get an STi bit me so I started looking for one that I could afford. With some help from Vern I found one, and traded in my WRX for this car right here!







She had 83K miles on her and needed a little TLC from the dent wizard and the detailer. I had a couple bumps to overcome initially with belts and batteries, but once I got over that I have been loving this car. It is by far a much better choice than my WRX ever was.

The Mod List so far:
APS 65mm CAI
APS Twin Vent BOV
CSS TMIC
Greddy Evo2 Catback
TurboXS DP and Catback Adapter
ZeroSports Intake Pipe
Rally Armor " Classic" Mudflaps
IxizConcepts IxizPstop
WC Lathe Werks Black Copolymer STi Sphere Shift Knob

Custom E-Tune by Matt @ 555Motorsports

Parts waiting to go on this weekend:
Group N Motor Mounts
Group N Tranny Mounts
Group N Crossmember Bushings
TiC Unabomber's Sexy Rearend Kit

That's it for now. Later!

My name is Ken and I am a HP Junkie.

If it does then I get to upgrade. PPG FTW. I am waiting for it. They told me at the tune that I could blow the tranny really easy. I don't really launch the car too much and if I do I slip the clutch.

NO doubt great attitude. I am on the same page as you. I just bumped my boost to 17.5 yesterday and everybody is telling me that I will blow my motor or tranny or something, but whateva. I would like to know if you actually blow your tranny, how and when, because my end all HP number at the wheels is 300, so I am curious to know how true it is that those numbers are lethal to stock parts. Once again good looking ride.

BJJ for the win!

Lord Ken...I need to visit the detailer then. I get dissapointed when you guys show off your shiny STIs. I clean mine pretty good. But, it doesn't look as good as the pics I'm looking at. Heh

LOL... This is the first time I have washed this car since I got it in October. I just ran it through one of the local car washes with people who hand dry it. That's it.

True...you need to hand dry it to bring out the shine though. Mine was pretty shiny over the summer with hand drying and some clay baring.

The STi went wingless yesterday. Here's a few quick pics to show the new look.

Much better look. Did you swap trunks or just take the wing off Ken?

We swapped trunks. The STi wing has like 10 bolts holding it on there. I don't have the money to get the holes filled and then the trunk resprayed. I plan to pick up a limited spoiler when I can find the money for it.

+1 on the limited spoiler. That diffuser looks so dumb without something on the ass to me.

Did you notice how heavy the wing was though? It's amazing. Yay weight savings.
