Whats up NASIOC! Been meaning to start a "build thread" for awhile now but never really got around to it. Anyway, this thread will be my journal to keep track of all the things I've done to my car.

It all started in December of 2012 when I traded in my 06 Acura TSX for this sexy thing, my 2010 Subaru WRX



The very next day....








Right under 25k


Right where she belongs, in a nice warm garage.



At this point the previous owner had already got her running a Stage 2 Setup
-K&N Typhoo SRI
-Process West TMIC
-Cobb High Flow Catted DP
-Borla Catback Exhaust
-Cobb AP Stage 2 OTS map



Previous owner had this craptastic headunit...


Replaced it ASAP with that OEM Goodness...


Keeping her fluids fresh with....

Picked these up from www.jdmfanaticvinyls.com and was very please with their service and fast shipping. The overlays came with instructions and even AN EXTRA "Test" vinyl. Although as great as that was, I highly recommend you have a skilled shop/person install these for you. Would be completly impossible without a heat gun.



BEFOR



AFTER




Looks 20 times better!!


LED's for map lights, dome, cargo, and licence plates.



LED switchbacks for my turn signals



Test fitting ebay lip



Got ahold of some chrome 2013 WRX headlights. Added Nokya Yellow DRLs, 6K PnP HID's, and put in my LED switchbacks. Removed the ugly amber reflectors.


camera didn't do a very good job capturing the light but this is parklights & DRL. Looks brighter than it really is.

Stay Fresh!









She was certainly on the way to being everything I wanted her to be. Was looking at getting coilovers and new wheels next but then the clutch went out. With the WRX being my only means of transportation and the clutch slipping, I had to scoop up money fast. With plans to go faster than just Stage 2, I was not going to replace the clutch with another stock one. Parted out my car to scrounge up some extra cash and everything other than the bolt on performance parts sold.

Back to the begining....



But now with an ACT HDSS clutch & ACT Streetlite flywheel



Up up we go

I really enjoyed the progression, minus the white wheels but that's just personal preference. Nice work!

Traded for some chrome 2013's. I'll be cracking these open soon.

Untitled by KM.photography907, on Flickr


LED's!!! (again). But this time, went with a red dome light and red lp lights. map lights are still functional for when you need to find stuff but the red dome light gives off that accent lighting mood. now i just need to get the OEM footwell lights (sucha ricer)

Cobb springs got parted out after the stock clutch went. Felt like stock at first. Then they became "soft". After putting the stock springs back on i noticed a big difference on stiffness. If you want performance, leave it alone. If you want to look lower and are willing to sacrafice some ride comfort, get lowering springs.
