Buttercup - R-Technique's 2011 SWP STI Sedan

It started out as this:




After being picked up for SEMA 2011 the building and moding madness began. Long story short, here's what was planned:




The end result for my 2011 SEMA debut was this:





Mods are as follows:

I wanted to post more information about my wheels. When I was trying to figure out what size and offset to get made for my wheels, I searched High & Low all around the forums to figure it out. Ultimately I ended with this configuration:

Brand: Forgestar
Style: F14-Concave
Size: 19"x9.5"
Offset: +34
Color: Matte Gold
Tire: 255/35/19

I wanted to have the deepest concave possible with this wheel as well as keep my wheel as flush as possible. I did end up having to roll my rears and fronts. In fact, I ended up taking out the front fenter liners. I plan on modifying them later to be placed back on to protect the wires and intake that are fully exposed at the moment. I also need to camber the rear since I still rub a little bit when going up curbs. That'll happen once i get some rear camber bolts to make it happen. I'd like to go about -1 and lower the car another .5". I'll also be chaning my tires to a 245/35/19 to get a little more clearance. The only issue I'll have at that point will be my lower frame bar which is about another .5" lower than the car frame (more about this to come).


Here are some pictures and details about them:


Here they are when I picked them up!


Here is a closeup in the sun of the Matte Gold finish.


Tires mounted and ready to go....

Here is a closeup to see the clearance of the wheel from the front caliper.

I haven't measured, but it's close.

And finally on the car:






Enjoy!

Here is the Blog Post by Forgestar about the car and wheels:

Here are some pictures of my bars installed:


Front Under Brace Bar



Mid Under Brace


Rear Under Brace


The Mid-bar sits the lowest of all the bars and is acutally the lowest point on my underside. It's about .5" lower than the rest of the car, so this was a bit unexpected after first slamming the car with this bar installed. I ended up having to raise the car up a .5" just to clear speedbumps and crappy roads here in Los Angeles. Other than that they perform wonderfully. Super light-weight and do their job well. Props to them.

You can get these bars from Phase 2 Motortrend in Los Angeles. They are the US distributor for them. Just talk with Wayne and he can set you up.

phase2motortrend.com


This is also where I got my Coilovers (Curcuit Sports) which are equally amazing! They are dual adjustable and 12-way dampening adjustable. All that for UNDER $1000.00. Can't beat it.

Side View (also Calipers before being painted)


Another shot on the car


And another.



Last time I check the website Phase 2 did not have them listed for our cars, but they ARE available. You just need to contact them. I need to bring my car in for picture of the products and what-not so they can post it on the site. This goes for both all the under-brace bars, strut bars (rear in the works), and coilovers.

Here are some Engine and exterior shots of the car:

Alutec Strut tower bar and wires/hose from the NX N-tercooler kit.


Close-up of the Circuit Sports Front Camber Plates & Adjustable knob. They are 12-way adjustable. On the softest setting, it's almost identical to stock. On the stiffest, I bounce all over the place when driving on so-cal roads. I currently run softest up front and +6 on the rears to tighten the back a bit to avoid rubbing till I adjust my camber. Feel is great for my daily-drive.


Close-Up of my Odyssey Battery & hold down.


AEM intake and greddy catch-can. I'll have to relocated the catch-can once I get my FMIC. It's a nice spot to show-off for now, but not the best for a FMIC.


Close-up of Hella Supertone Horns (painted to match car) and my Front Plate Delete.


And finally a picture of the rear of the car. It's debadged and paint matched trim. Still debating if I'm going "red-out" the turn signals....

Probably one of the worst mod paths for a DD subie I've ever seen on NASIOC.

No, that would be modding engine while not tuned!

Not a very nice 1st post. I think it's not super overdone, yet...at least some later suspension parts(braces). It was made for sema, not for you.
