This has been my ongoing project for a while now, which I’ve been working directly with Equilibrium Tuning (aka EQ Tuning) located in Fairfield, California. ED (Owner/Tuner) and I have been working on a sleek design that has 600+whp yet leaving the stock look and also being somewhat street able. Here is the build list.

***********

Car: Impreza STi
Year: 2006
Color: OBP

Engine:
Darton Sleeves
100mm CP Pistons
ACL Race Bearings
Shortblock Clearancing and Blueprinting
ARP Case Bolt Set

Power Enterprise Kevlar Timing Belt
Cosworth Billet Timing Belt Guide
Koyo Race Aluminum Radiator
Killer B High Capacity Oil Pan/Pickup Combo
EQ Tuning Custom Oil Catch Can
Upgraded Oil Pump
Every Part Powder Coated or Anodized Black

Fuel:
E85
Dual CNT Racing Pumps (340lph) w/ Hobbs Boost Activated Switching
Aluminum Fuel Rail Kit
Fuel Pressure Regulator 30-70psi
Injector Dynamics 2200cc High Impedance Injectors
Stainless Steel Braided Fuel Lines

Turbo/Exhaust System:
Borg Warner EFR-8374 TS EWG
Crucial Racing Port & Polish & Coat Turbo
Crucial Racing Port & Polish & Coat TGV Deletes
Crawford Big FMIC
Crucial Heat Dispersant Coating on FMIC
Front Mount Intercooler Aluminum Piping Kit w/ Blow Through MAF
Cosworth Intake Manifold
Full-Race Rotated Twinscroll Headers w/ Up-pipe (with 2000 deg. Silver Ceramic Heat Coating)
Full-Race 3" Downpipe for Rotated Kit (with 2000 deg. Silver Ceramic Heat Coating)
Full-Race Custom Dump Tubes
Invidia Q300 3" Cat-back

Transmission:
Clutch, Stage 3+, High Clamp Pressure Plate w/ Carbon Semi-Metallic
Beatrush Engine/Tranny Mount Combo
Gruppe-S Forged Flywheel – 14.9lbs
Factory Short Throw Shifter

Engine Management:
Cobb AccessPORT V2 w/ Speed Density
PLX Sensors
Car Computer w/ Virtual Gauges (Displayed on my Double Din DVD player)

Exterior:
De-badged Completely
Lightwerkz Black Painted Headlights
Lightwerkz Black Painted Taillights
WRX Trunk Swap w/ WRX Wing
Rear Chrome STi Badge
Black Power Coated Stock BBS STi Rims
Front 35% Tint
Rear 5% Tint

Interior:
JDM S204 Dash Kit
WRX Black and Gray Interior Swap
ProDriven Complete Red Light Conversion
Clarion NX-705 Double-Din DVD Player - Pending Install
Pioneer ND-BC5 Backup Camera
Factory Steering Column Boost Gauge
Factory Titanium Shift Knob

Interior Details:
We are going with no actual real gauges except the factory boost gauge located on the column. The whole set up will be virtual gauges utilizing my Clarion NX-705 and a custom Carputer. I want it to appear to be stock on the inside. The interior right now looks like a WRX interior.

Exterior Details:
I put the Chrome STi since people see the chrome and assume WRX. Only thing that gives it away is the BBS Rims, Orange Brembo’s, Rear Flares, Diffuser, and small wing above the window.

Future:
I need to work on suspension, braking, tires, and possible upgrading the axles. I was thinking an Ohlins or Race Comp full coil over setup. For brakes I am going to upgrade rotors and pads, maybe even get the Stoptech Brake Kit (Questionable). Axles, I’ve seen 1000hp axles but might be cheaper just to replace it with OEM if it breaks. I don’t expect the stocks to snap all the time… hopefully.

***********************************

Update: Car did 500WHP @ 25psi (Full spool roughly 4500rpm). Need to fix fueling issues.

Here are pictures of the exterior before it went to the shop:





Here is the Crawford FMIC:





*NOTE* More pictures will be coming soon, I neglected to take pictures throughout the whole process. I should have them this weekend.

Paint the Brembos black for a murdered out look...personally I'd suggest silver with either NO stickers or SUBARU stickers. Orange Brembos are way too loud for a sleeper and putting an STI or Brembo sticker on them slightly defeats the purpose. I'd go with a debadged trunk (at least get rid of the trim level badges) for that clean look. Many WRX drive around debaged, so other than the brakes you'd be rather stealth.

not too sure about it being "sleeper" status, but I'm liking what I see as far as performance mods. Can't wait to see how much it puts down.

Once these last touches are done the car will definitely be a sleeper.

Nice work.

I'd leave the brakes the stock color. Just debadge it and get wrx sideskirts.

I'd leave the sideskirts. The WRX Limited comes with them anyway.

Brembos are suspicious! Front brembos bolt up and there are 5*100 drilled rotors for them, so not too suspicious. However, the Brembo rear is a dead giveaway since the conversion to rear Brembos on a WRX is pricey and often times people just opt for the red 2pots.

I'm not trying to hate or anything man but I just dont see how having a murdered out car or red calibers is sleeper. If anything that will catch more attention than stock color calibers. The stock color is hardly noticeable compared to bright red calibers. Just a thought.

Naw, aside from the sideskirts and sunroof, I think the Limited's exterior looks like the regular WRX. No extra badges.

Here's mine for reference: (Only exterior changes are the wheels and '05 tails)




I'd definitely go with Red calipers. But black would still look very "sleeper-ish".

You'd pay $1,200 for a sunroof??

I love my sunroof but I do not think it's worth $1,200 by ANY means.

Having it open is no different than just having the side windows down IMO.

I vote no sunroof, replace STi badge with WRX, gloss black calipers with flat black brembo letters, silver BBS, and add a resonator or something to your exhaust to keep the db's down. The sound is going to give you away instantly.
