Sup everyone, the name is Brendan; currently living in Morgan Hill, CA. This is my second car and my previous was an 08 Civic SI. My SI was flushed out and I decided to go for more of an aggressive look for my Scoob and wanted more of a Form and Function type build. I bought her used on late October 2011 with 17K miles on her, 100% stock.

You can like my photography page on Facebook here.
And add me on Facebook here.
You can also like my website on Facebook here.

And the build begins!

Soon to be followed by an Accessport. Also picked up OEM racks and a tule snowboard carrier.

Next was a Perrin Dual Catback exhaust and an STi trunk trade

Added a Perrin BPV for a few hundred miles and then sold it.

Amongst those small modifications were interior dome lights, map lights, and license plate lights and 8K HIDs.


Next was a full makeover with OEM Rain Visors, BC BR Extreme Low Kit coilovers and traded my stock wheels for 18x9.5 +22 225/40 Rota DPT in hyper black. and also debadged the WRX logo.

Stanced Subaru WRX Sedan 2011 by brendanthegreat408, on Flickr

This was how she sat after I got the coilovers setup perfectly, had the front and rear fenders rolled as well.

Just got tuned by Torqued Performance Stage 2, here is a virtual dyno graph.

virtual dyno final by brendanthegreat408, on Flickr

pulls very nicely, big difference between this and the Cobb OTS map

And thats how she sits right now. I will keep this page updated hopefully lol.

Future plans: 38mm EWG, Fuel Pump, Spark Plugs, Pro Tune, Sway bars, lateral arms.

Thanks for looking hope you enjoyed

LMAO 255 is what I run on a stock wrx 8in wheel. Some even run a 265. You have a 9.5in wheel. Talk to me when you have a 275 or better on that car. Also BC coils are junk if you ask me and your car is way to low. I would love to know how much travel you lost with your setup. Your all show my friend

Haha I just read some of your posts. Do you actually own a WRX? Also most of your comments are just trying to stir up drama. Here is a hint, you live on long island, there are a ton of bridges. Go google maps the nearest one. Jump off.

Also to the OP. Keep doing what you are doing. You are doing it right.

I like how your car looks, but I'm a little confused by your choice of lowering your car if you drive to snowy places with snowboards. You think it'll run alright?

Why get the STi trunk to begin with? Why not just the wing?
