Had a little photo shoot with my friend not too long ago it got dark while we shot so most of the photos were no good







11/19


Been a little while I'm definitely keeping my car put my mud flaps back on for winter mode. Looking to get new winter tires, stage 1 clutch, and other supporting winter mods depending on how well I do plowing this year. Going to be promoted to full time around March if I'm not already gone away to SOI / school of infantry and from there Scout Sniper course.

Moral of the story me and Emily are never breaking up! 

12/09


Most recent mods I did were swap my summer floor mats for rubber winter ones and replace all interior and reverse lights with LEDs gives the car a classy look inside and out, Thanks Black Friday!

So Jersey got a taste of winter yesterday it took it's toll on many, but Emily had kept me safe driving home through the storm. I only have 4 weeks left with my baby before I go off to SOI / infantry training battalion for two months but hopefully before that I'll have swapped trunks for the STI and have my friends Cobb SF intake on my car and when I get back from training I'll treat myself to coil overs 

12/16

No problems in the snow with Emily! Even with my summer tires  only a few weeks of driving until I go away to training gonna miss her!

Thanks alot man! Thats awesome you are got plans for the new WRX can't wait to see! I still got some more photos I gotta transfer over that I took today actually! New mods are the best!

12/20


New STI duration shift knob feels so much better than the stock knob (to me!!) It is a lot lighter and I got a DGM painted vortex generator



note the new sticker and vortex generator should give me at least 20awhp and 5mpg increase!

Just got a $85 traffic ticket in the mail for going through a red light thats clearly still yellow while I'm in the intersection but I'll be away for the court date for training so I can't fight it

12/21

Like I promised changed out my intake today for the Cobb SF Intake and installed the kartboy SS which went pretty painlessly minus the snap ring but unfortunately once I went to reflash my car my Accessport kept telling me to cycle my key even though it was ON so after trying that a few times I disconnected my battery and tried again still told me to cycle my key so I pushed in the OBDII connection and the AP connection and it finally worked! Went for a test drive and not even 500M down the road and my car stalled out! I checked the code and it was P0102 low voltage from the MAF even though my Accessport was reading 0.0 volts and would stall and once i started it again read from 1.0-3.0 so I continued onto the Auto parts store hoping they were open and picked up a can of MAF cleaner because on the way home Emily hit 25,000 miles!!! Not the best start to a mini milestone in her life, but I cleaned the MAF checked the connection tightened the intake and what do you know Emily is back on her feet!

Cobb SF intake Black like everything else under the hood and car if you couldn't tell where I'm going with that color scheme…



Can't really tell the difference from this photo but new short shifter and new knob feel fantastic together!



25,000 miles!!!!



12/22
I took the Cobb intake off as it was causing serious MAF voltage problems and went back to my CAI and the car is running perfect again despite it being 70 degrees today!!

12/23
My CAI came off today because it is being sold and I am now back to the stock air box no more whooosshhhh

What do you mean your COBB intake was causing MAF voltage problems? What was going on, man? I have a COBB intake....

It was a problem with my MAF sensor not the intake it wasn't reading any air coming in (as 0.0 volts) which would cause the car to stall out

Got the STI Rear Fog Light but I won't have time to install that because I'm flying outta Jersey tomorrow morning and be gone until Mid-March down in North Carolina!

Also picked up a Cusco Front Strut bar my car is so JDM yo
Haven't had a chance to do any spirited driving due to the poor road conditions but the car feels a little stiffer should be a good addition once I get sways and end links.



Gonna miss Emily a whole lot not being able to drive sucks but I'll have some moneys for teh race car build so big things when I return!

Sorry to anyone who was interested in the Cobb AP, Invidia DP and Q300 I was selling I didn't have the time for that but anyone still interested can still snag it when I get back!

Had a little photoshoot over by Rutgers University, probably the 1st time in awhile where I wasn't the photographer. Photo creds go to Kyle Petrick (_becauseracecar) awesome photographer and sweet STi









Sadly after the shoot was over I had gotten a flat tire the craters in NJ are wheel killers

Yeah I love the way they look on my car and I get a lot of compliments on them despite being XXRs it's just a stiffer ride because the sidewall is so small @245/35/18 gonna try and trade for a new setup this year for 17s
