Besides that, my goal is to make a great all around car. Be able to be competitive in Auto X (another goal, actually join in), be a good and comfy daily driver, and look fresh to death.

Mod specific; in the future i would like to upgrade to
-BC Racing Full Coilovers
-New Sway bars
-Brakes
-FMIC setup

Whats up everyone. Starting up my own build thread to track of all the work and progress done to my car. So here we go!

My very first Subaru, 2004 Subaru WRX sedan - Java Black Pearl. Bought this car from a memeber off here who took amazing care of this care and i will continue to do the same. To those who know or may recognize this car, this was edo2000's old ride.

(befor i bought it)


Later that night after i bought it...



Mods the car came setup with:
-JDM STI IHI VF34 turbo
-565 cc STI pink injectors
-Walbro 255lph fuel pump
-Helix catless downpipe
-Helix catless uppipe (resistor mod to clear CEL)
-Greddy EVO2 catback exhaust
-Large Ebay topmount intercooler
-STI Group N HD engine mounts
-STI Group N HD transmission mount
-Kartboy shifter bushings
-Cobb front and rear sway bars
-Kartboy rear swaybar endlinks
-Aftermarket turbo inlet tube
-Aftermarket intercooler Y-pipe
-Aftermarket throttle body hose
-Ebay front and rear strut tower bars
-Mobil1 synthetic gear lube in the differential and transmission
-Conservative Tune by PDX Tuning
-OZ Racing Prodrive P1's

Next day came the carwash



Had to do something with the leaky driverside headlight, so i went with satin black housing headlights




Also did the badge delete on my grill

Good progress. Car looks great. Can't wait to see once you get the chance to lower it if you do.

Damn Kevin!! You move quick, lol.

IMHO don't bother with the front mount I/C until you get a "Bigger" turbo. Stick with the TMIC, keeps the boost response low. Also the Cobb sways are a good setup.....I suppose you could get a thicker rear sway.


Also the Turn in concepts Sexy Rear end kit and diff mount is of the best bang for the buck suspension wise.

What have you been resealing with? Silicone or a butyl rubber sealant? Never use silicone, FYI. Are there any stress/age cracks in the outter lens?

I used this black "water proof" rubbery sealant. did not see any cracks on the housing or the lense.
