HISTORY

I have always wanted a Subaru STI and got to a point where I could finally get one. Being that they released the sedan model for 2011 I got one as soon as possible. I like the hatchbacks, but I love the sedans. I hadn’t really had a car that I had done a lot of modifications to before so this was an experience for me and essentially this is will show what I have done so far and possibly my future plans. It is a little late in the game, but should hopefully be interesting none the less. I picked mine up on October 18th in 2011 and have been enjoying it ever since.

Most people like to have a goal for their car. Ultimately mine was a nice mix of power and aesthetics. Make a fun daily driver, even though I drive it less than most, and have a car that looks good (to me that is ).

Special Note

I would also like to give many thanks to my biggest supporter/sponsor RallySport Direct. I have a link below to all the write-ups we have done for some of the products that were put on the car. Also I would like to thank and recognize the other companies that participated in my personal build in the Sponsor/Supporter section.

Why thank you I felt it was pretty decent for the elevation I am at here as well. The turbo comes on nice and quick.

Haha being that they are so wide and the ride height I am at quite a bit of camber I am actually at -4 in the front and -4.5 in the rear.

ahha damn! Okay, so much for my intentions of going into the 20s for offsets for 10.5s. Keep it up! Looks fantastic!

I'm not an expert on wheels, but I was under the impression that as long as you didn't lower it a large amount you should be able to fit a 18x10.5 in the +20-30 range. I feel that if I raised it a bit it would be a better setup for 'hard driving' what ever that may be haha

yup! that's about right. i'm running 10.5+35 and it fits fine but given my ride height and without rear arms, if i dip into the mid-low 20s i'll have some poke..

who cares about "hard driving"

haha yea as long as your not lowered to the ground you can fit a pretty aggressive wheel without a ton of camber from what I have seen.

Bought the WeatherTec window visors and the way they mounted finally gave out. Fell out the window and cracked on the ground. Time to install the OEM Subaru!
