Default RallySport Direct's 2015 WRX STI Build






RallySportDirect is happy to introduce our 2015 STi project car. We are very excited for this all new Subaru platform and are looking forward to sharing our build experience with the Subaru community. We will document the entire build from start to finish, reviewing parts as we go and best of all is provide full reviews along with technical feedback on all parts that we test. After only driving this car for a little over 100 miles it’s obvious that Subaru has done an outstanding job with the car, however as we all know there is always room for improvement to make the car perform to individual driver’s needs. From basic bolt on items to more customer one off projects, we look forward to sharing our experience with you!

So an update on the car, as I have put on about 330miles on it the last few days.

First the things that I like.
Suspension and Chassis out of the box is amazing! Having had an EVO X before, I am not afraid to say that apples to apples the new STi will outrun it. The new steering rack will also make this car great for autoX! The stock interior is fantastic compared to the outgoing GR, I dont like it as much as the GD personally but its leaps and bounds ahead of the GR. Stock tires are amazing, but are a little loud. The new sound system, is very good for Subaru standards (if that means anything). Last is the look of the car, every time I part the car I cant help but turn around and look at it. Some thing the car is very plain, but that is not a bad thing as I have yet to have a single cop look at the car

Things that I hate.
Stock seats are terrible, I mean they are THAT BAD! Yes they look nice, but do not hold you in at all ( I am 6'4" and 230lbs). The noise tube is driving me NUTS, it makes the car sound cheap and I on purpose have the stereo loud enough so that I cant hear it. The car has a big blind spot on both sides around the rear 1/4 panels, I find myself checking them 2-3 times before I change lanes. Reverse camera is a big "small", yes its nice but I wish it was a higher quality lens that had a wider angle.

That should cover basics for now , we will have more info as we get more miles on the car

So I just got done testing some parts on the 2015 STi.
Catbacks, will work BUT! The middle hanger on the mid pipe is off by about 1". So yes you should be able to use 2011+ Sedan catbacks, but the middle hanger might not line up. Also the mufflers might sit really close to the chassis (on the back side of the muffler).
We did all testing with a 2011 STi Sedan OEM exhaust.

All rear sway bars are the same, along with endlinks! So you guys and gals can upgrade those. But keep in mind, Subaru has been know to install rear struts backwards (our shop 2015 STi has this issue). So when installing aftermarket endlinks if your rear struts are flipped, you will need to rotate them 180 degrees.

Hope this helps you guys out!
Also we have all confirmed parts listed on our website, and will be adding more later this afternoon!

Spent some time with the STi today

Put it up on the lift today to do some product test fitment


After that it was time for a wash. Its been raining the last few days and the car got quite dirty! We got our favorite SONAX cleaning products and went to town.

This is the effect of the SONAX wheel cleaner, it turns red after a few minutes as it begins working away at the brake dust. Quick scrub with a soft brush and the wheels are as good as new.


After that finished off by doing a quick wax on the car using the Sonax High Speed was and the car is better then new

We have not test fit any aftermarket exhaust quite yet. We are waiting to do some marketing stuff with the car and to break in the motor before we proceed with adding any performance parts to the car. I think if we put on an exhaust it would be hard to take it off :P

Sorry for lack of updates recently. The STi has 850miles on it, and I am trying to break it in ASAP! Its so close to being broken that its driving me crazy.
However we have some testing lined up as soon as we can start driving the car hard.

Default 2015 STi Oil Change


The Sti has just been itching to be broken in.. well okay that’s not true, but we have been itching to get the STi all broken in. We just want to be able to go have some real fun with it, so we are excited to say that it is 100% broken in, and the first order of business is an oil change, so let’s get started.

Tools needed:
17mm wrench
12mm socket
Flat head screwdriver for plastic clips
Oil Filter Wrench (why are these factory filters on so tight!?)
Clean Funnel
A few rags or paper towels


What we used:
4.5 Quarts of Penrite Racing 5W30 oil
Prova Oil Filter
Dimple Magnetic Drain Plug M20X1.5X14
Note* if re-using your factory drain plug, make sure to pick up a new crush gasket for it




First thing we like to do is remove the oil fill cap, it seems to make draining the oil quicker and also less messy. Once done, get under your car, as we will have to remove the factory under panel. There are 6 plastic push clips total (3 on each upper side of the panel), 2 large clips, and 3 x 12mm bolts holding on the under panel.





You can see the 3 side panel clips here. Remember there are 3 on each side.





And the large clips on the rear of the panel will pull out.





With the under panel off, we now have access to the oil filter, and this will also make draining the oil easier as well. Use your 17mm wrench to break the oil drain plug loose, and make sure to place your oil catch pan under the drain plug and let er’ loose.






Once the oil is drained, insert the drain plug back in and torque to spec, which should be 33 ft-Lb’s.





Now we can move onto the oil filter. The stock filter was on incredibly tight, so we had to use an oil filter wrench to remove it.





With the filter off, we like to clean up any residual oil left on the bottom of the oil cooler.





Fill the new filter with oil, and use the oil to lube up the O-ring before installation.





Install the new oil filter, Subaru lists the torque at 10.7 ft-lbs, but we usually just go hand tight plus about of a turn extra.





Reinstall the under panel in reverse order. It may be helpful to have a buddy to help you hold the panel up while you get the first few bolts or clips in.

Now use your funnel and put in the rest of the 4.5 Quarts. Double check the dipstick to make sure oil is showing, put on the oil cap, and start the car. Look for the oil light and make sure it turns off, let the car idle while you visibly check for any leaks. If no leaks present, shut off the car and let it sit for a minute, check the oil dip stick and add any oil if needed.




If everything looks good, give yourself a huge high five and make sure you do a victory dance as you just successfully did your own first oil change on your 2015 STi.

Last and most important step, go for a drive and enjoy your car!

Thanks,
Rick
