About Me and my love for Subarus
A little about me... My name is John, I'm 25 years old living in beautiful Burlington, VT. I'm a professional nerd of the "Full Stack Developer" type. I graduated college with a degree in Computer Networking and Information Security with a focus on Enterprise Security practices. I work full time alongside a few of my best friends at Bag Riders Air Ride. I became interested in modifying vehicles the first day of college, where I met fellow BR employees Will and Rali, as we all shared the same freshman dormitory. The shenanigans we shared throughout our freshman year I'm sure will be retold for years to come. I love these guys to death!

My first Subaru experience was driving my mom's 2.5GT back in high school. My high school was at the end of a 2 mile long dirt road which in hind sight is really what made me fall in love with Subaru's.

Chapter 1 : How it all Started
Fast forward to 2009. I was driving an Audi B6 3.0, which was by far the most unreliable vehicle I ever had the misfortune of owning. I bought the car as a salvage title, and poured way too much money into repairs during college. I don't really want to think back on that 4-ringed POS, but I do have to thank that Audi for getting me back into a Subaru. I traded my Audi in for an 07 Impreza 2.5i. It was the base package, it had an automatic transmission, and I never intended on modifying it at all.... boy was I wrong about that one!

Fast forward again. My 2.5i ended up looking like this:

IMG_2367 by taylormenezes, on Flickr

While I loved the stance, the automatic transmission and naturally aspirated engine were just downright disappointing. I wanted more. I wanted a WRX.

My search began, knowing exactly what I wanted: an clean (unmodded) 06/07 WRX Wagon, Limited, with black leather interior and < 100k on the odometer. After months of scouring the internet for classifieds across the United States, and nearly jumping on one in California, I found the perfect candidate just four hours away in Massachusetts. A single owner WRX Wagon, owned by a 40-something year old lady, that had lived the majority of its live on the west coast and had never seen salt. I was confident the car hadn't been driven hard, and the price tag was more than perfect. Upon arrival, I found that the vehicle had plenty of dents, dings and scratches which enabled me to negotiate the price even further. I didn't care, I had plenty of fresh body panels to swap on, and big plans for quarters which would involve plenty of body work anyhow. My coworker and roommate Kevin (he has a bagged silver 05 RS on BBS RS') accompanied me on the drive down and I left as a proud owner of an '06 WRX Wagon:


My 2.5i next to its successor

Chapter 2 : Let the Modding Begin!
I began the process of ruining (I say that with a grin ) my beautiful new WRX by ripping out all of the interior trim pieces and giving them a extremely thorough clean. If I had to guess, the previous owner's favorite foods included peanuts, crackers, and was an avid drinker of coffee but didn't care for using a lid Needless to say, while the interior LOOKED clean (the leather was in great shape), the nooks and crannies needed some love. With all of the plastics out of the vehicle I gave the carpet a nice round of shampoo and cleaned every individual trim piece outside of the vehicle.


I could have left it like this "because racecar", but I prefer the trim

With all of the trim pieces out of the vehicle, I gave them a thorough hand cleaning and prepped them all for paint. I love black interiors, so I began the process of dying the interior plastics. Here is how it all turned out:


To add a touch of class, or rice, whatever you want to call it, I wrapped my headliner, sunroof slider thingy, and sunvisors in black alcantara. Having done the headliner of my 2.5i in cheap suede, working with real material makes a HUGE difference in the outcome. I was extremely pleased with the results, you won't find a single wrinkle in my headliner!


And now that I am at the image limit for this post, we shall move onto the next!

Before diving into anything too major, I continued with relatively minor interior and exterior modifications. I was in no rush, and I wanted to continue to transform my cabin into what I wanted it to be.

I got these way too expensive black HVAC controls, horrah!


I completely blacked out my seatbelt position adjusters. Something I always wanted to do!


I replaced all cabin lights with some nice LED's, I love the difference!


The brackets for my seats were a little rusty, so I pulled the seats, sanded the brackets, and hit em with some black rustoleum. No more rust, yay!


This one goes out of chronological order, but I got rid of that silly secondary air pump.


I prettied up my engine bay with some sexy alternator and radiator shroud's from Killer B Motorsports.


Roof rail delete was one of my favorite mods on my 2.5i, so I had to transfer the trim pieces to my WRX


Everyone's favorite mod: Kartboy Short Shifter and Shifter Bushings! The bushings sucked to install, but the difference is well worth it!


I got this shift knob that I really like


And it looks really nice along with my S204 console

Here's a nice shot of my interior all cleaned, thanks to my wonderful girlfriend


I really love the SMY Gauge Pod, so OEM!


Chapter 3: Finally Something Interesting. Power Mods and a FMIC

POWER MODS WOO! At some point, I installed an Invidia Bellmount 3" Catless Downpipe and a 3" Magnaflow Catback. I also replaced my Turbo with a VF43 and flashed to "Stage 3" via the Cobb Accessport. I've got a bunch of plans over the winter time for the motor, and plan on getting a "Pro Tune" sometime over the winter, or this spring time. I'm not including any pictures of this stuff since it isn't really all that exciting.

In order to keep the clean look going, I decided to go the route of a front mount intercooler. I'm well aware of the downsides of a FMIC, but like I said, I want to shave the hood scoop so the TMIC has to go!

I picked up a Perrin Coolant Expansion tank and mounted that where the secondary air pump used to be


The intake elbow put my Cobb SF Intake in the way of the IC piping, so I replaced that with a 2.75" silicone coupler. Now my intake filter is out of the way of the intercooler piping, horrah!


I painted the intercooler with a very light coat of black for that stealth look


I hacked out a big ol' chunk of my bumper beam to fit the core


It fits real nice!


With the bumper cover on


In order to maintain the stealth install, I painted the T-bolt clamps for the endcaps black so they're much less noticeable

Chapter 4: Air Ride Management

I began the process of the air ride install by running the power wire from the battery back to where I planned on housing the air management in the spare tire boot.

I ran the power wire along the driver side, first I went behind the rear seats...


Then into the rear door sills...


Up to the front!


The wire passes through the grommet by the clutch pedal. You can see the blue wire which is the power wire for my amp, which I installed under my driver seat. I'll upload pics at some point!


I housed all my wiring in this foam compartment behind the rear seats in my wagon. I started by cutting out a piece of MDF, including a cutout for the E-Level ECU


I plumbed the tanks outside of the vehicle and dropped them in to place. There was plenty of room to spare so I went on working!


More test fitting... Everything will fit perfectly!


I made this cardboard template to drill the holes for the tank mounts


... continued...

Then I drilled a bunch of holes


I chiseled away all of the sound deadening or whatever it is underneath the spare, then proceeded to paint the boot black and install a few fittings. The two on the right are bulkhead unions for my rear air lines, whereas the one near the middle is where the exhaust port on the VU4 goes, therefore exhausting air to the atmosphere rather than in the cabin. There is no benefit to this, other than the noise of air leaving your bags is much more audible from outside the vehicle, and sometimes I shoot up a little dust cloud


It was a quite a rats nest while I got all of the wires situated...


I tucked the VU4 harness under the EXO mount as so


Almost done... The box on the bottom left is the TouchBox wireless controller. The harness splices into the existing valve wiring, so I had to run wires behind the tank which it is mounted to and up into where my "wiring zone" is going to be. At this point, the setup is all plumbed, there is just wiring remaining.


I used the NPT ports on the back side of the VU4 manifold to output air lines for each of my gauge's pressure sensors. I use the DigiGauge digital air suspension gauge, the sensors are nice and small, so I tucked them in another one of my wagon's trunk compartments. Here I have all of the sensors connected to Female Straights, mated to each air line, labeled per corner so I don't get them mixed up!


I tucked all the gauge lines into some wiring loom and hid it away in this compartment



The final result!
Parts are:
(2) AccuAir 3 Gallon Air Tanks
AccuAir EXO Mounting System (painted teal, locally)
AccuAir VU4 Manifold (pictured, top left)
(2) VIAIR 400C Compressors
Zaetech TouchBox Wireless Controller (pictured, bottom right)
Zaetech DigiGauge Air Suspension Gauge (not pictured)


Remember that piece of MDF I cut? I affixed all of the wiring accessories to that so it is nice and tidy! Just one relay, a few fuse holders, the i-Level ECU, e-Level ECU, and two distribution blocks (one for power, one for ground). I grounded to a nearby seat post.


That does it for air management!

Next up I went about mounting the RockerSwitch controller, routing the TouchPad controller cable, and running some air lines.

This looks like a good spot...



This little guy was preventing the RockerSwitch from going into the OE spot nicely



Mmmm perfect! OEM+


I routed the controller cable for the TouchPad, and the screen cable for my pressure gauge underneath the carpet and through the center console. My TouchPad lives in the box between the driver and passenger seat when it isn't being used


My front air lines are routed up the passenger side in the door sills, behind the glove box, and then out through this grommet in the engine bay.


The rear air lines pass out of the spare boot via the bulkhead unions, then follow the rear swaybar to each rear bag


Up front, the control arm will hit the subframe, preventing the last 1/8" or so of drop. This is after the axle hits the subframe, and tires hitting the wheel well. I'm being preemptive here


The front strut towers have a lot of little metal studs and other sharp stuff, so I ground them off. In order to clear more room and make full use of the camber plate, I also took a 5lb sledge hammer to the towers walls


Oh and I got a Vanity Plate

Zaetech DigiGauge

I picked up the Zaetech DigiGauge to use as my air suspension gauge. It's cheaper than the Dakota equivalent, comes in a variety of screen colors, includes a wiring harness, and is overall just better in every way I look at it. Props to those guys for making a stellar new product!

Stock image:


The product comes with a beautiful aluminium bezel but I immediately voided my warranty by removing it from the case so that I could install it in place of the OE clock. I can't recommend doing so as it will void your warranty!

I first tucked the ECU and all the sensors in one of my wagon's many hidden compartments, this one is near where the OE jack is stored. I had to cut out a piece of foam to fit the ECU in there but no big deal. All of the wires route out underneath the foam and up towards the front of the vehicle.


I cut out a piece of an old DVD case to make a bezel for the clock pod, as I removed the OE part. I later cut out a square the same size as the DigiGauge LCD screen and spray painted this piece black. This is just showing how I cut it and stuff.


Here is that same piece painted black with the square hole cut for the DigiGauge display


All done! Looks good to me, and the readability is awesome in the OE clock spot!


Other Stuff I forgot to include

Kartboy end links and a Whiteline 24mm adjustable rear swaybar. Woo!


Front bumper shave / license plate delete is my favorite aesthetic mod I've done...


I slept with my wheels in my bedroom for a really long time. And yes, I own a ton of flannel. DUH! I LIVE IN VERMONT!


Also, this part is pretty obvious but if you're going low you should tuck this harness a bit so it is out of the way of the wheel. I unbolted the chassis fender support bracket and re-routed the harness under that and along the outer upper side of the wheel arch. It was previously run along the top of the wheel arch and would rub when driving low. This doesn't just apply to air ride so anyone that has been static low will know to do this, or at least should!

Thanks for all the love folks. I updated one of the reserved posts with some pictures of my air gauge install along with some other stuff I forgot to post before. Still have a ton of pictures to upload including the whole "getting low" process.

Plans for the winter are primarily cutting of the rear quarters to graft in the wider Sedan counterparts and if budget/time allows, fabbing an EL header, uppipe and downpipe for a front mounted turbo. I'm thinking about shaving ABS and putting the turbo around where the ABS module resides, but I may be able to fit it there and keep ABS. The intake side of the engine will be getting some love in the form of a reversed intake manifold, TGV deletes and some good P&P love for the IM and TB. Should be a fun and eventful winter, hopefully the work will make the cold months go by quicker :P

Added a full-ish (I think) mod list to the first post. There's a lot of stuff that I've left out of pictures but I'll hopefully find some as I rummage through my collection of iPhone dumps. My old Droid has a ton of pictures on it which I need to recover at some point too.

Thanks for the kind words Corey! I'm holding off on photos until I finish a bunch of stuff over the winter... namely grafting in sedan quarter panels and rebuilding the wheels to meet the wider body components If my measurements are correct (big "if" sometimes ) once all is said and done I should be able to get an entire extra inch of lip so the wheels will measure 17x11 all around. I'm switching up barrel sizes as well in order to run a little bit less negative camber. Not to mention my front end is still embarrassingly not low due to the lack of notch/tub which brings me to my next point...

I should finally be getting around to notching/tubbing this weekend (or next week, if this weekend doesn't pan out with the GF :P) which will get the front end to sit nicely and I'll be uploading photos of that process to this thread for those that are interested
