Default BLEE's continuing 04 STI race car build

I purchased my 04 JBP Subaru STI in Oct 2008 in Boston. The original plans were to keep the car semi-stock, with bpu's and some exterior parts. However since my good friend who owns a local performance shop, STM, I have decided to go all out and build a race car thats also show worthy.

My first mods to the car was, JIC catback, megan downpipe, hallman boost controller, fuel pump, and a open source tune, done by STM. The car made
283 TQ and 266 HP (18.5 psi, 93 octane) on a Mustang Dyno. We went to the track and ran a best time of 12.5 @ 108. Not to shabby, for what was soon to be found hidden inside of the car. (see below)

WAIT...WAIT...WAIT!
What is all THAT CRAP!?
Dynamat!? Seriously?
So all this time, I had over 50 pounds of this crap stuck all over his car! (Not including all the extra wiring stuffed in there too!)





Even the A-Pillar's!



We used DRY ICE to help get the rest of the dynamat off

This is just sick... The Brake Man Storm System Race Brakes:
Bye Bye Brembos!
These calipers are about 5 pounds (with pads)
The rotors, about 6 pounds.
Yeah.

Big THANKS to Brakeman for the awesome hookup!!!!!!!

These will allow me to run some really light 15's and slicks. The 16's still have plenty of room to breathe.

yea it is, stock motor lasted 30k with the kit on 55k total, but it still wasnt done, just a lil low compression, pulled the motor recently to go w a closed deck along with all the other goodies, swapped to an 06 sti rack and crossmember/newer style hubs/knuckles, doorcards<-heavier btw, and center console stuff


heres my 1/4 vid, best times ever were 11.2/127 w a 1.60, on 18's, stock clutch, motor, trans, just the kit alone put me at 484.7whp/496.6tq on 27psi (c-16) here in so cal, these times are un-believable w/ all the stock parts, specially the clutch, I sometimes hear of people frying out their exedy twin plate with not even as good of times as this, just blurpin the throttle as you can see, no launch control



and this was my buddies 05 sti/ same turbo/boost, mines a lil more fancy looking is all, his looks stock, we were tuned on the same dyno/tuner

Thats my old car

@ the dynamat video!
Its only took a few weeks to get all that matting in there I dont think I went that crazy... theres tons of spots that werent covered. I dont know if you took out the headliner yet... but the roof is covered too

Feel free to send me the dynaliner if you dont want it. Those 2 pieces on the floor in the back... $100.

Those brakes are the coolest looking things I have seen in some time... Tho I wouldnt use them on the street in a million years.

Looks like my old car is in good hands.
I cant wait to see how it turns out.
