Default A History of My Car - Tons of Pics

So I got the car and loved it. Threw on some nice wheels, washed, waxed and took pics




A couple months later it was Stolen and they found it in Newark, NJ laying on its belly. The entire interior was stripped and some of the easy stuff off the engine. Brakes, wheels were gone too. But Geico decided to fix it and it stayed at a Geico certefied shop for 4 months. Where I fought with the mechanic. He was probably the most irresponsible mechanic I ever dealt with. So they obviously did a ****ty job fixing it. Here is the first day back at home:



So I had a choice of trading it in or mod the hell out of it. Since I already spent 2K on my deductable, I decided to mod. So I went with the Sti look




Got the car tuned, and couldn't make more then 258whp on a vf22 with all supporting mods and a larger tmic. So I went with a fmic to try to keep the temps and knock down.

Got the car tuned again and found that I still can't get more then 258 hp. The tuner told me it's getting random knock and predetnating. Probably a crack or something wrong with my heads. Disappointed, I decided to get rid of the sti look.






Threw on a mesh to try to keep the fmic from taking too much of a beating.




Complete Mod List:

Power
Cobb AP
Cobb Intake
OBX Silicone Turbo Inlet
ihi VF22 turbo
SSAutochrome FMIC
Walbro fuel pump
Pink Injectors
Cobb Pully
Cobb Heat Shield
PNPed & covered stock headers
HKS up pipe
Cobb TBE
JDM STi BPV
Bosch Copper Plugs

Handling
Sti Replica F&R sway bars
Megan Street Coilovers
Cobb 25mm rear sway bar
Centric Rotors
Hawk HPS Pads
Goodridge SS brake lines
Kartboy Shrot throw Shifter
Kartboy F&R bushings
Momo Shift Knob


Interior
AVH-P5700DVD
Profile AP400 Sub Amp
Kicker Comp 05C124 Free Air Sub
Profile HA1040 Speaker Amp
Infinity Kappa 63.7i front speakers
Infinity Kappa 42.7i rear speakers
Prosport Boost Gauge
Prosport A/F gauge


So now I'm getting a copy of street tuner (should be in this week) and I'm going to try and tune the car myself. See what exactly is going on. If I can't get it to at least 300whp, i'm either going to revert to stock and sell, sell moded, or rebuild the engine.

Well, that's it for now. I'll update as I add stuff.

YOu thought about getting the windows tinted like 35 all the way around?

if they want the car, they will get it. no amount of locks, switches etc. will stop a determined experienced thief from getting your car. it sucks, i know how ya feel.

id revert to stock and sell it on ebay.

Yeah, but what pissed me off was that it wasn't an experienced thief. It was some ghetto ass punk from newark. You could tell because the steering column and fuse panels were busted like the person didn't know what they were doing.

I don't wanna sell it because if I was to get something that would be equally as good, it'd have to dish out 10k or so for an sti. If I drop 10k into this, I'd have a new engine, new heads, new turbo. But I dunno what else might have been broken when they stole it. So I'm not sure what to do.

i feel your pain with the insurance thing i had another geico customer hit me when i was with them for insurance did over 8500$ in damage to my jetta and was in the shop for 6 months because they wouldnt total it. after 4 months they decided that it was taking too long and took my rental away. it was never fixed right, the repaint was horrible and chipped super easy....but the up side small shops dont all report to carfax. apparently mine didnt so when i traded in my car had never shown being wrecked. but yea geico wanted like another 500 in damage to total it even though they had to shell out way more for a rental. i hate that company so much.

Yeah i did everything possible to complain but didn't get anywhere with it. I asked for complaint forms, or anything to make my complaint official and have it on paper. Got nowhere. It's easy to have a 98% satisfaction rating when there is no way to complain

GIECO tried that crap with me on my bugeye when i wrecked it......$8k in damage and i was like $1k short.....that was just for body repair.....i know i trashed the steering and abs but the estimator ignored me......after 3 weeks i get a call that they finally totalled it when he saw the abs unit was dead and the steering rack had the passenger tie rod 1/2 way into it

either case they didnt wanna give me a formal form to make a complaint and i canceled my coverage....they are worthless.....
