Latest posted picture:


Ordered the car back in March, ETA was July. Picked up on May 7th. I was impressed with the quick delivery.


I put in a Perrin Afta-MAF silicone pipe to remove the "sound tube", Perrin Foam Air Filter and JDM STi grill within the first 15 miles of owning the car.

The 2nd day I had it, off to the tint shop, 55% front, 20% all around:



It then went off to have the Xpel clear bra put on as well as paint correction and 4 layers of Quartz Sealant (should be good for about 2 years) - BTW The Xpel clear, while very nice, is a PITA to clean bugs off of. If you do not clean it within the first 24-48 of a bug splatter, it stains the clear bra. QUITE noticeable on a white car.


Finished detail - SOOOO much shine and REALLY brings out the pearl even more:



Ordered a bit of PasswordJDM Carbon pieces. Still debating about a few other parts, but for now, the Gurney Flap doesn't look too bad:



I ordered a set of the Fortune Auto 500 Coilovers back in early May. They should be here yet this week (8k/8k springs). I originally put down a deposit for a set of Advans to be brought in from Japan, but ETA was given as mid-late October, so I canceled the order and went with some CR Replicas (18x9.5 +35 - 21lbs) I picked up on Clearance for the summer until later this Fall when I'll re-order the Advans (18x9.5 +40 - 19.6lbs). I also plan on putting on some Eibach sway bars with the Perrin End Links.


Engine wise - looking at having a either a custom dual exhaust built (similar to the SubiSpeed) or may end up with the Tomei Expreme Ti. Also debating on the Grimmspeed intake with the Tomei turbo inlet.

But, for now:



One of my favorite pictures (yes, it is framed and hung up in my house as well)


Spent about $200 through Chemical Guys getting all new towels, soaps, quick detailer, foam gun, and air fresheners. Soaps are really nice, as well as the towels & air fresheners but not a big fan of their glass cleaner. Makes the windows almost tacky and always leaves a haze.

Oil changed - Amsoil Signature Series
Looking at doing Amsoil in the transmission as well as the diffs

Also, put on the window visors

The tech that was to install the coilovers messed up his hip somehow and will hopefully be able to do them yet this week as well as the wheels.

Coilovers have been installed. Ended up about 2-1/8" lower than stock. The ride is much better than I had anticipated. I have the dampening at 12 in the front, 10 in the rear. I had KW Variant 3s on my 350Z and these are very comparable in quality of materials and ride.

The wheels did not fit with the offset I obtained. They will be coming off tomorrow. I'm not chancing the rub/damage to my front fenders. The rear look like they'll clear, but I'm just not chancing it in the front.

Will probably look into 18x9.5 +42

Car looks good. Wheels would likely fit if you raised the car up a bit. Looks nearly "slammed" at the current height.

I don't like that the wheels stick out from the body. It looks horrible with proper alignment and not having too excessive of camber.

The fenders are just to the tires, eliminating the wheel gap and providing a slightly better center of gravity. These coils still have about another 1-1/4" of lowering available, but I'm "not about that life"

I just got back from Colorado. We hit up Suba, Coal Creek Canyon, Pikes Peak and the back road from Breckenridge through South Park. Had an amazing time and the car handled well with the stock sway bars. It still has a lot of slop to clean up though. The engine on the other hand absolutely hated the altitude. Loss of power, running very rich and at one point I had almost no throttle response. I will hopefully returning to Colorado for the Rocky Mountain Subaru Meet in September.

Default Vordoven Forme 9 18x9.5 +34 Matte Bronze

The wheels were stamped as "+34" and measured to be at +28.5. I contacted the manufacturer and they stated all wheels are measured before leaving the warehouse, which may be true, but I'm not sure they know how to do math then. The representative over the phone told me to try running 3 to 4 degrees of camber to correct for the offset....

The manufacturer offered to help me sell them since they are in such high demand. They refused to do anything else about it. This will be the last time I cheap out on wheels, even if it was a temporary situation until the Advans get here.

They're Vordoven Forme 9s. They look nice, but turns out their customer service is a joke. They asked for my measurements twice when all of the information was in the original email to them. I'm not sure if they're lazy and just skim emails, or just don't bother actually reading the emails at all, jumping straight to "denied".

Wish me luck on the next endevour of obtaining an alternative lip kit rather than the common Subaru "V-Limited".

Traded off the Vordovens for some Rota P45-F 18x8.5 +35 - only 12oz savings on weight over the stock Enkei's but will work for now. Will post up some more updated pictures soon enough.
Still saving up for the Advans. Ordering snowboarding stuff over the summer and car stuff over the winter is the standard routine. This year is thrown off with all of the possible upgrades available for the STi vs my old 350Z

Added a couple of things... Ordered more things... Will have to put up more updates as we go... Looking to pick up a new exhaust this week, hopefully. But for now, here are some updated pictures after putting on the new wheels. They'll be powdercoated this winter (not a fan of the black/red)

Test fitting the ChargeSpeed front lip:


I'm not really a fan of the 15+ Chargespeed side skirts as they don't really match the front lip, so I tried the 11-14 carbon side skirts. I was hoping they'd be close enough I could deal with it, but 3/4" is more than I'm willing to let go (bought with the option to sell to a friend if it didn't work out - I planned ahead)

So, I installed the SubiSpeed Quad Tip exhaust this past Friday. It's a lot louder than I had anticipated. Also, the fitment needs a lot of adjustment. It still does not fit quite right after adjusting it several times and having a shop look at it as well. The passenger side needs to be replaced or bent as it sticks out about 1/2" more than the driver's side. It's also VERY close to the rear differential. About 1-2mm. I will post pictures in a follow up post in the very near future.

I also installed the Perrin Intake kit, but opted out of the paper filter that is included with the kit for the Perrin/Alta Foam filter. Just installing these items actually seemed to fix the lean afr's at about 3500RPM. As odd as that seems.

I also changed the red lip on the wheels to white. Looks a lot better.

So, I sent back the SubiSpeed Quad Exhaust a little while back. I still haven't ordered the replacement, but was originally looking at the ARK Grip. After seeing & hearing the Greddy GT/SP in person, I'll be going with that one most likely.
Also, ETA on the new wheels is March to go a bit wider with 265/35... Hopefully NT01 Tires or possibly Advan tires.
More carbon fiber is on the way as well as a few custom pieces.

I also redid the emblems myself. I used a high gloss setup rather than the matte that so many have used:


I also made some for a friend's 16 STi:

Car is looking amazing.
Sorry to hear about the exhaust fitment.

Keep up the great work!

I believe there's a company that makes a CF OEM style side skirt. It's not from a baller company but it similarly resembles what u were trying to accomplish. Check Ebay, I believe they're like $450 bucks.

Thanks.

I found a set of carbon fiber side skirts that I'll be ordering soon. Hopefully the car will be pretty much done, exterior wise by May.

Quoting myself, I will be finally be getting the wheels in this week but have to go off to my detailer to be airbrush coated with protectant against brake dust and contaminants. Should have them on early next week and will be slightly lower than the current setup. Then to work on the engine things.

What it takes to put my STi on the rack - rocking the stock wheels currently with the Rotas For Sale, waiting on the SSRs to be delivered.


Greddy SP Exhaust & Whiteline 22MM Adjustable sway bar (Thanks to SMY Performance - PrimeSMY now)


The PasswordJDM Carbon Fiber Rear Window Spoiler


I also purchased a nice Electric Pressure Washer and Foam Cannon. The STi loves Chemical Guys soaps!!!

Can you share what power washer and foam cannon you picked up? Also what cleaning materials you use? It would be much appreciated

Car looks great. Hoping to keep my CWP WRX as clean as yours. Already have a clear bra put on, still curing though so I have some small bubbles still :/

Pressure Washer:
http://www.arblueclean.com/Products/1900-psi-power-washer-165.cfm

And I pick up my soaps and foam cannon through ChemicalGuys.com
I primarily use their V07 soap on the STi, but have several others depending on what type of cleaning the car needs such as bugs, heavy road grime, light dust or just touching it up. Their waterless car wash spray is great for car shows as well.
My car is coated with CQuartz sealant. It's an absolutely amazing product. I had it done the first week of owning the car with minor paint correction needed.
I have the Xpel clear bra, but there are random little bubbles and it had to be cut to fit properly. I will probably be redoing it this summer with their new cut pattern.

Thanks. I have been waiting quite some time to get them (due to other wheel choices falling through) and Tony at Evasive Motorsports got them in quickly, was very patient with my indecisiveness and always got an answer for my questions, even if he had to call me back. Will be ordering the next set of wheels through them as well most likely.
