Default SubieNewbie257's 2013 SWP WRX Build Thread

Well, like so many folks, I also debated on creating a build thread for my 2013 WRX. I also wanted to contribute to the community and share my own build and experience(s).

Quick Overview:

My previous project was a 2005 Lexus IS300 that I truly enjoyed modifying and learning the details of the platform. Upon selling, the IS mid 2012, I ended up purchasing a 2006 Infiniti M45 (for practicality purposes). Soon thereafter, I knew that I needed another "toy." and sought out to purchase a well priced and low mileage WRX. After a comprehensive search and careful consideration I purchase what you see below my very first SWP WRX. After driving the car approximately 500 miles I knew that the mod bug had bitten me again, and Hard!



Phase I of my build started off like so many (with the following upgrades):

1. Tomei Expreme Ti cat-back exhaust
2. Cobb Turbo Heat Shield
3. Invidia Catted Dowpipe (initially chosen to cope with boost spikes)
4. Cobb V3 Accessport
5. Perrin Cold-Air Intake (w/ speed density pro-tune)

The results from phase I of the build yielded modest yet noticable power gains:



So, after driving for another 1,000 miles or so and collecting numerous parts, I decided it was time for Phase II.

Phase II modifications include:

1. Defi Boost Guage w/ Solid Mod Vent pod
2. One-step colder sparkplugs
3. DW 65c Fuel Pump with Bosch 1000cc Injectors
4. Whiteline Positive Shift Kit
5. IAG TGV Deletes
6. GroupN Transmission and Engine Mounts
7. Tial 50mm BOV
8. Tomei FPR w/ Guage
9. Grimmspeed EBCS
10. Perrin Turbo Inlet (red)
11. ACT Streetlite Flywheel w/ ACT HD Clutch
12. JPM Coachworks Alcantara Shift Boot, E-brake Boot, and Arm-rest
13. Prova -shaped Steering Wheel
14. Crawford AOS
15. Koyo Racing Radiator with Red Samco hoses
16. ATI Superdampr Crank Pulley
17. PW TMIC
18. Goodridge Stainless Steel Clutch Line
19. Tomei EL Header
20. PST Carbon Fiber Driveshaft

My goal, throughout this entire build process was always to choose meaningful modifications that would enhance the character of the car itself, all while staying, (somewhat) reliable.

Dyno-sheet to follow upon tuning on Wednesday or Thursday.

More to follow!

i hope it is for him. he's fine where he's at for stock right now. unless he's prepping for a whole motor rebuild and making more power and getting rid of that 6 speed.

Ruzty1311, Thanks for taking a look at my thread! Ultimateone, was correct in his reading, that all items (1-20) have been installed and will be tuned tomorrow afternoon or Thursday morning (depending upon my tuner's availability).

JAMMON, thanks again for reading my [short] thread! I am expecting no more than 330 WHP; obviously this will be below the threshold of the modifications however, I'm not looking to [as you've mentioned] upgrade the engine and transmission.

To clarify, I am looking to establish a [somewhat] reliable platform, with the next step (phase III) focusing on suspension and braking. Stay Tuned!
