My 09 WRX Build

This is going to be the fastest build thread ever....

Mods to date...
Turbo-xs FMIC
Turbo-xs BOV
KS Technology 73mm cold air intake
Walbro fuel pump
1000cc DeatschWerks injectors
Prodrive EBCS
GT Spec EL Header and Uppipe
BC 8k/8k coilovers, corner balanced and aligned
Kartboy pitchstop mount
Group N motor/trans mounts
STi short shifter
Tsudo catless downpipe
SPT catback

Figured I'd start a log for my car so she doesn't feel left out. I bought my 09 SWP sedan at Chino Valley Subaru FTW (RIP) back in July and promised my wife I wouldn't touch the car for 6 months (mind you I had 12-15k in my diesel that was only a few years old) so I figured what the hell I could do that with ease.

When I brought her home


So August rolls around and I hear about Eibach looking for a test car for the 09+ kits and figured I lived close enough they could use my car....wife not thrilled FTW ;D. So after 3 different sets of springs this is how she looked. I couldn't believe how the springs changed the ride and handling of the car and got rid of the wheel gap.



Shortly after that I got talking with Vim from Treble Racing (Boost Addict) on here and the rest is history. He took me for a ride with his VF-52 setup, top mount etc...and I was hooked. After reading through his dictionary of a thread; I find out that his SPT is for sale and purchased that. I got home that afternoon and 40 mins later I had the Subie rumble I was after. Next I purchased a K&N filter and a Tsudo downpipe and was ready for stage 2....figuring that was where my car would stop.
The car was road tuned by Naji @ Looney Tuning; he is a Socal based open source tuner than mainly does Evo's and has done quite a few Subies.
Here are the sheets:very conservative numbers equivalent to a low low reading dyno.



So needless to say the car will be getting some newer parts and hopefully some more power; sometime within the next 2-3 weeks. My new list consists of:
Turbo-xs FMIC
Turbo-xs BOV
KS Technology 73mm cold air intake
Walbro fuel pump
1000cc DeatschWerks injectors
Prodrive EBCS
GT Spec EL Header and Uppipe
And then a retune
BC 8k/8k coilovers
Thanks
-Jason

So a lot of parts came in....still waiting on a few more but for the mean time here is a tease of the FMIC and piping, intake and BOV....everything is done in silver-vein except for the core. I have to thank Vim at Treble Racing for taking care of everything. If anyone needs any parts, he will go out of his way to make you happy

Installed the BC coilovers and had Dave at West End Alignment corner balance and align the car....what a difference. The car handles like its on rails. Just a teaser....Got the intercooler on and trimmed the bumper/grille. The TurboXS fits like a glove, no issues what so ever. The GT Spec ELH, uppipe, motor mounts and trans mounts should be on either Thursday or Friday. Cant wait to see the header after the black ceramic coating.

Quick update...got the header and uppipe back from getting ceramic coating. The header, uppipe and motor mounts will be on tomorrow, should have everything else installed/finished by Sunday afternoon ready for the tune on Tuesday.

The car made 318whp/334wtq at 18psi on the stock VF-52 and pretty steady at 11.1 afr. Now the next main part on the list is the turbo which I'm still deciding on....should put me around 370ish.
Finished pics of the piping etc...The car PULLS

And if you can't tell by the pics...I'm not a photographer...I wouldn't have parked next to the trash cans or Honda/Acura whatever that was

Getting ready for S3...


At S3



Now the next problem is deciding on what parts I want next. I want a turbo but I'm undecided; I like the dom3xtr like Vim's running and I like the ATP 3076r...both will have 3" inlets so I will be using the ATP hard turbo inlet, meth setup (undecided what brand) and will be removing the TGV's via Cosworth's setup.

Thanks man, I love me some sperm white pearl

The only state side distributor to get it from is HPT. We actually imported 12 from Australia at the beginning of the year...now they are selling like CRAZY. The lip fits the 08+ premium models and all 09+ HPT Motorsports - CS Style Polyurethane Front Lip for 08+ WRX (premium bumper)

Boost Addict is more helpful than not
Jason! Builds looking great man. We're very proud to sponsor your ride!

Can't wait to see which turbo you choose. This car is going to haul some serious tail

Thanks Vim, its been a pleasure doing business with you. I have to finish my list and I'll get you some cash. I'm kinda hoping the stock motor goes quickly so the boost can be turned up

It already catches some tail....so hauling it around quicker is even better

Next is carbon hood/trunk, wheels/tires, sways and endlinks and audio....

Thank you, with 99% of the FMIC you will have to trim the lower grille since it basically sits in its current spot. You can trim it enough to have it clear but I wanted the intercooler to stand out. You could also put a mesh grille in to cover it up and somewhat hide it. The fitment of the Turbo-xs is great and I have had no issues with clearance or hitting anything. It doesn't rub on the hood like the Perrin's I've seen, the only thing I plan on doing is when we pull the intake manifold to do the TGV deletes and hard inlet I am going to run the driver side piping below the fuel lines this time as I think it will look a little cleaner.

I sent you pm also
