Still trying to do research on stuff so I dont make any mistakes. Right now the car is stock with 27000 with boost gauge and head unit in from previous owner.
Right now I am keeping the car for DD but might turn into a track/auto x car. Parts I have looked into are whitelines front/rear 22mm adjustable sway bar with kartboy front/rear endlinks and whitelines strut bar. I have bounced back and forth from coilovers and spring/strut combo just because although I plan on turning into a track/auto x car it will still be my DD (most likely). I havent been able to do a lot of research on spring/strut combos so I was looking for suggestions and tell me if I am wrong but I have heard BC Racing Coilovers are fairly good.
As for other parts, i am set on the Invidia Q300 burnt tips exhaust with with invidia catless dp, intake (havent done any research on intakes), Cobb tune.
Also for aftermarket wheel, i was looking to go 17x9.5 or 18x9.5 but i have read that 9.5 would rub with factory suspension, so would the spring/strut combo help with that? And correct me if I am wrong but doesnt wider wheels/tires reduce handling for track/auto x courses?
Thanks in advance for help and input!
I have several parts available for sale if you are interested. I just recently sold my 2011 STI and have Tein coilovers, whiteline front/rear sway bars, access port, Process west top mount Intercooler, AEM cold air intake, Koyo rad, Tomioka Oil cooler, and some OZ 18/8.5 allegerita gold wheels with good tires on them. Let me know if you are interested in anything. I sold my car with 9500 miles on it and most of these parts only have several hundred miles on them and are like new condition. I was planning on road racing it some, hence all the performance parts. I just went another route and dont need this stuff sitting around in my garage anymore. I believe most of these parts will fit your car as well. Let me know. Nick
