wrxhard: Thanks for the order!

Here is a little more info for everyone out there. The new PERRIN Stealth Exhaust system is made with a thermal powder coating process. The thermal coating not only locks heat in the system to increase exhaust scavenging and flow, it also prevents excessive heat build up under the tunnel of the car.

If there are any question on the system or how to install it please let me know I am always ready to help.

Best,
Ken

That is an excellent point! It is good for folks like you to put thing in perspective for us sometimes as well. We would hate to start thinking we are taking things for granted.

Thanks again!

UPDATE: Just received word that Project 15K has seen a minor setback. Due to the local inclement weather of snow and ice, VS. the near race compound tires, Project 15K ate a bit of concrete this morning. The guys in the shop will assess the concerns here shortly. It may be back on the road in a few hours, or ? No matter what we will keep you informed. WE made this project to see what we could do with this type of budget on this type of car. If some of the budget this morning went to a repair, we will also include it in the totals to stay honest to the build.

Thanks again folks for the continued interest!

Awesome project! I just picked up a MBP '02 WRX as my DD, so the STi could get way more serious. Can't wait to see whats next!

Thanks guys for the posts. Got the car in the air last night and there is definitely some wrinkled suspension to deal with. Body is a-ok though. So we need to start removing and replacing a few things (including the wheel!) then get it to the alignment shop. Thankfully the damage was more superficial that we first thought! Thank god!

First off, that sucks

Second, I don't think anyone could logically argue that you would be straying away from the intention of the project by omitting the repair costs in your total. Actually I would argue that by doing so people may not be able to see the full benefit of what 15k could REALLY do.
Now... if you go ahead and add upgraded parts instead of OEM for the damaged components... Those should be added to the bill

Are you going to go with new shocks and struts? GR2's? Also what springs? Prodrives?

Yeah, I would not include the cost of repairs as part of the budget, particularly for an accident. you want to showcase what mods you can do w/in the budget and including the repairs, IMHO, diminishes that goal. but it's your car

btw, great thread.

Hahahaha. My car suffered the same setback almost exactly a year ago. Bent strut and busted wheel. I say, yes, this should be included in the cost, but it should not be replaced with stock parts. I vote gr2's (what i used) and some good springs (i used hotchkis, great choice btw). Edit: only cost about $280 shipped off ebay, brand new, for everything. Anything else that needs to be replaced should be upgraded too, as aftermarket parts are often cheaper than *NEW* OEM parts, not to mention better. I love this project because it's a reasonable project, and it's not a zillion dollar build.

I agree 100% with kaos200 and the others here. Insurance usually covers this stuff (minus the deductible) and you can usually use this as an opportunity to upgrade the parts with the insurance check. My car was hit in the rear last summer while my car was sitting in the parking lot at my condo, with no way of finding out who did it or how to hold them responsible so I paid out of pocket. I used it as an opportunity to redo the entire body (front JDM and rear OEM 3-piece lips, sideskirts, aerosync mudguards, JDM grille, and painted my c/f hood... kept it all sonic yellow of coarse). I've spent 30% more than your budget on just modding my car (let alone buying it) and I wouldn't hold it against you for not including the accident in your build-up. It's still honest IMHO.

Anyway, after you paid the $10k for the car, pay the deductible, and bought the other goodies so far, how much is left? And what are your plans? I'm sure you have one, right?

The Project will continue for sure! Car goes on the lift again today for some more major inspection and surgery. If the basics don't fix it, it is off to the frame machine! Ken will keep you all posted! Thanks again for the kind words.

KEN: Time for a budget update as well! Lets find out where we are at here!

Got a couple parts ordered today, unfortunately I am not the only Subaru driver that has had a brush with a curb. Looks like it might take a week to get the new ones in. The last couple of weeks here in the PNW have been a little cold and icy in the morning. As Adam mentioned earlier driving around on race like tires in the snow and ice is never a good idea (but fun in a large parking lot).

Here’s a couple pics of my custom work, and no this is not our new N.S.R.S (Negative Steering Response System).








Have a good one.
