(im not saying its not cool... it is!!) but we have been waiting patiently and all we have seen is the interior out of the car.. maybe you can speed up the process a bit for us nasiocers.

thanks

ps.. i love perrin, i dont want to dis you guys in any way. you just need to step it up a notch.
Thanks for the push,

As part of our build we wanted to go through all the steps in buying and tuning and share with all. The search and cleaning was the just the first in that process. The second step which we just completed last weekend (post coming tonight) was to change all of the fluids (differential, oil, brakes, etc.). During the big flush we did install our Sub frame Lockdown System and our Differential cover.

Now its time to let the mod’s fly……..

Just last weekend we put the finishing touches on getting Project $15K ready for the road and mods. I wanted change the fluids in the car not only making it road ready but also giving me the peace of mind that she has the proper fluids in her.



While performing this general maintenance we thought it would be a good touch to take advantage of the situation and install two quick differential mods. We installed the PERRIN Rear Differential Cover and the PERRIN Rear Differential/Subframe Lockdown System. Feel free to click on the links for a step by step DIY and pics from my install.

The PERRIN Subframe Lockdown System adds rigidity and stability to the rear end diff. This kit eliminates driveline slop, the results can be felt the first time you take off from a stop light at almost any speed. I have to say that this has to be one of the best “bang for your buck” mods I have ever done. While the S.L.S provides instant gratification the PERRIN rear diff cover adds style and functionality. The rear diff cover is made from high strength, heat-treated cast aluminum. We’ve incorporated cooling fins into the design helping to reduce oil temps, in addition to looking good and cooling the oil better we’ve also increased the oil capacity more than 30% over stock.

This general maintenance time also gave me a chance to inspect the under belling of Project $15K. At the time of purchase we were told that it had an aftermarket sway bar which is a plus. However, I quickly noticed that the stock endlinks were present, but not for long. I also noticed that we still had the stock front sway bar. This too will be getting replaced. Over all, this last little bit of maintenance gave me a chance to finish off the cleaning and restoration process in preparation for the fun stuff. It has taken me awhile to get to this point but I’m here and ready to get to work and keep all of you up to date on the process as I/we move forward.

My only question is when you get the parts, are you paying "real world" prices or "vender" prices. Only reason I ask is it would see unrealistic if you used your resources to get parts cheaper for the build up than the normal enthusiast can. Or even if you did pay vender discount prices do you figure in what retail would be?

Also, at the end of every section, can you show what was spent on that section, and the remaining money?
Just an Idea...

Edit: Thought of something else...

Good question,
We will be using “real world” prices for all PERRIN parts and other vender gear. Our goal is to show what anyone can do with $5K of performance parts and a used WRX.

Just finished installing two new mods on the ride so be on the lookout for my next DIY’s

Also be sure to checkout our New Years Day special

For everyone looking for a little update on Project 15K just this last week we installed the new PERRIN Stealth Exhaust System and the PERRIN Lightened Crank Pulley.

No matter how many times I hear our cars open up I can’t get enough. Add the cool stylings of our stealth exhaust system and you have a mean combo. Be sure to check my DIY on the PERRIN exhaust system and also be on the look out for my DIY on the crank pulley.

Once the rain lets up I’ll get everything clean and take some pics with the new wheels and styealth exhaust. The whole yellow and black theme looks pretty cool.

Thanks

Ken

Ken,

Can you give the folks more information about the coating? Also, post this up in the Exhaust section as well. I know some NASIOC folks would be interested there as well!
