Thanks for checking out my 07 TR. A lot of people around the Charleston area know me, and some of the guys up in NJ and NC know me as well. I have owned/modified BMWs, VWs, and even a Toyota... Feel free to make suggestions, PM me, and even ask questions on here. I hope to meet some more enthusiasts in the area.

Fullen: All around go to guy for help with most of the items I do and he always is up for learning and helping out.
Craig: Hes Craig, Nuff said.
LowcountryImports Crew: Without most of these guys, I would not have people to bounce mod ideas off of and get feedback. Invaluable friends.

Big Shout Outs to Shops!
Total Mini BMW in Charleston South Carolina (Without Chad and nate the Transmission swap would not be happening)
GrimmSpeed for their Support and Knowledge
AndrewTech Automotive for their Knowledge and Support
And to all my buddies in SC that I go to countless meets and events with. For without you none of these mods would've happened.

Car pretty much looks exactly the same as that currently. Not much will change on the outside aside from new tires/rims and suspension mods. Going for a real covert setup

OOOOOK So, car is on the lift, getting stuff swapped. Ran into an Issue we thought was going to happen with the slave cyl and rear brake hubs. Basically the WRX uses a 170MM Hub where the STi Uses an 190mm. You have to use the DBA656 rotors from a SVX that also replace GroupN Gravel Spec rotors.

These are DBA656SL and DBA656SR along with the race rotors if you need those by just adding a 4 before 656. Mind you each PN is for EACH ROTOR, NOT PAIRS OF ROTORS. Josh at IIR almost sent me 8 Brake rotors because of this.

Front rotors for the 07 are DBA2650SL and DBA2650SR... Jesus this makes my head spin.

Very nice car. I'm in need of some repairs on my car and after reading your success with Total Mini and BMW I am also thinking of having it serviced there. Other than that, hope to meet you at a meet one day, props.

Updated as to most of the things being On the car now. We are having issues with a DCCDPro Universal controller and currently are working with DCCDPro on this. The controller I purchased apparently came to me crapped out with a bad transistor and a blown board.

Working with the seller on this as soon as he emails me back.

As an update to my build. Just got finished w/ Chad @ Total Mini BMW Services today and everything is done. Jumped in after getting back to the USA and stalled the car... Lol

After starting it back up with a giant grin on my face, re-learned how to drive my WRX after not driving anything but a BMC Diesel Flatbed for the last 4 months. Overall with the new clutch and flywheel it is a bit interesting getting started, but I will get used to it. I really do like how the drivetrain has a very locked down feel. After everything was buttoned up, aligned, and off the lift I took her for a hour or so test drive and found some things I still need to get to to make sure everything is perfect.

Stuff Done:
Full 04 STi Drivetrain Swap - Non Working DCCD due to DCCDPro I received having a blown transistor. Friend who does electronics for a living here in the USAF is fixing it.
ACT Street HD Organic Clutch & StreetLight Flywheel
KartBoy Rear Outrigger Bushings
KartBoy Rear Diff Bushings
KartBoy Subframe Lockdown Kit
KartBoy Transmission Subframe Bushings
Group-N Transmission Mount
Group-N Motor Mounts

Great car to drive, now for some more work

Thanks all. Today Fullen, Tyler, (Other people who's names I cannot remember :*( ), and Craig helped me with painting (Plasti-Dip) the interior trim pieces to imitate the JDM S203/204 interior. And while Fullen was attempting to put some duplicolor plastic paint on it (did'nt work out so we stripped the pieces and re-painted) I wired up a DEFI BF Gauge Controller and 2 Bar White BF Boost Gauge. All in all, the gauge looks awesome and helps a bunch but I need to seriously put a hood on it.

Great day, had fun. Need to get more stuff done @ home on sunday though. I don't know if I will be able to make the race event I was invited to. Guess I will just have to leave the meet on Sat early and turn in so I can wake up and get shiz done.

Little update. Right now Mike @ GrimmSpeed is custom making me a set of Uncoated PnP Headers w/ Crosspipe and a nice new TGV Delete kit. Should be done by the end of the week and on the car by tuesday for the tune wednesday. That is if it gets here. If it does not we aren't going to TopSpeed for the tune yet. Rather have everything on the car and ready to roll.

Another update for the car. Put the VF39 on today with a friend and boy was it annoying trying to get the oil return line in. Found a trick where after you pull the stock turbo off, put the return hose back on the engine block return and put the clamp on after. Then put the upper clamp on as far up while still staying on the return line before you put the turbo in, and it should just go right in. When I do the TGV Deletes however, I will be doing a new inlet pipe for the turbo as the stock one I can see failing pretty soon because of the increased vacuum coming through it.

Little Update, KWs are on the car and it handles a bunch better. However since the car is lower I do have to play pothole tic tac toe and avoid a bunch of them as well as ruts. Other than that, its a really nice ride and the coilovers are really forgiving for ride quality. Very nice compared to BCs I have ridden with.

Another update, KWs have been on the car now for a week and change. Have to still do the rear camber bolts so that I have some more negative than -1 in the rear, I need it to be around -1.8 and around -1.4 in the front (Wanted -1.5...)... All other numbers are within limits.

Put the Innovate MTX-L in yesterday and wired it up. Gave up half way through because I was starting to get a bad headache and was getting nauseous. Realized I hadn't eaten since 9 AM that day, went and had food and relaxed for a bit. Got back to it around 11 PM and finished up the wiring along with the calibration. At first I accidentally put it on the Constant +12 from the clock instead of the ACC +12... Fun times, got me frustrated but I figured it out pretty quick and re-did the wiring for it.

Overall, its a great wideband system for data logging, but AccessPORT Race is not functioning as I like so I want to move to a INNOVATE SSI System for logging. Just need to find a good place for RPM, Throttle, Boost, and Temps/Pressures.
