1KwiKF's Build Thread
 
Bought my WRX about a month ago, and have started buying parts, so I figured now is a good time to start my build Thread.

Its a 2013 SWP WRX Premium hatch. I bought it with 4000 miles on it, and am now sitting close to 8000. Its my first Subaru of any type, actually my first import at all.

I dont exactly know how far I will go modding her, but knowing how ive been with everything else I own, Ill be changing quite a bit.

A week after I bought it, I realized that WRX'x come with "high-performance" summer tires. So I contacted Discount Tire, and had new wheels (17" Drag DR-19) and "high-performance" Winter Tires (245/45/17 Blizzak LM60) with new TPMS Sensors mounted that weekend.

Yea, I've been hanging out over there since they messed this site up the other day.
Really sucks because I loved this forum.

1kwikf 12-14-2013 08:08 PM

Yeah, I definitely prefer wrx tuners to club wrx. I hate nasioc, people over there are like internet thugs who are "too smart"

BLAZE2099 12-14-2013 09:58 PM

I agree.
If only they would put back what wasn't broke in the first place here:(

1KwiKF,
I started some sort of build thread in the garage. It can take a limited number of pictures, and I don't have a huge mod list.

So after dealing with the LLLLLOOOOOONNNNNGGGG clutch pedal travel for a while, I decided that it was time to fix it, so I ordered and installed an IXIZ Clutch Limiter and manually adjusted my starter switch (which, by the way, you need a stubby 14mm 12pt box end wrench to adjust)

And After some deliberation, and making some massive overtime, I ordered my Kartboy shifter w/bushings and Flossy Weighted Shift Knob.

Thanks! It only took me about a week to realize that I wanted nothing to do with the other forums. Guess Im a tuner for life.

Well, After realizing that the snow does a number to the side of my WRX, I got me some Rally Armor


Kind of a before and after
