Alright, I purchased my 2006 WRX in August of 2006 with thoughts of it being my daily driver. I wanted an STi but it just wasn't feasible at the time. From day one I had started modding the car, first started with the normal exhaust and intake which had been swapped over from my previously modified 2005 4EAT WRX. So here it is today. Trailer queen non streetable track car. I've put every time into making this car where I want it and I am not sure if it will ever get there haha.

After a couple turbo upgrades: 18g, Dominator 3 and lots of beating the living hell out of it the stock engine finally got tired and fell asleep as well as a couple stock 5spds. This is when the larger modifications started to come into play. A Cosworth longblock was purchased along with the APS TSR70 turbo kit and other needed bolt ons. I was power hungry, but who isn't. After I did all this I started getting sick of the car and sold it to a local friend. Then bought it back because of regret aaand then sold it again and bought it back. After a few months of giving the guy I sold it to hell. I finally decided I would keep the car seeing how I owned it there was really no good reason to sell it.

After a couple more years I had the car featured in Modified magazine, not only a feature but cover and a cheesy one at that. Not sure how it made cover but I couldnt be happier

After purchasing my 2008 STi dumping some money into it then making my WRX into a full time race car it was finally time to call it quits as a super fast, caged, fun street car. I'm not too good at telling stories about it but here is my 2006 WRX.

The car is raced in a local series here at Miller Motorsports Park called Lap Battle. I am still learning the car as I have built it beyond my ability to drive it, it scares me but it's still really fun and has been decently reliable and does well at the race track
