It's stage one. Dynoed 15% over stock for both Hp and Tq. It's very on par to a stage 2 STi or more compared to previous Sti's I've had

Yeah, but in a chassis that weighs 20% less.

Nice ride man...even the stock airbox fits, looks factory as hell.

Yup that's exactly how I wanted it. It feels much faster than my 07 and 05 Sti's. it's just fun as hell to drive.

Washed it in the driveway. Cleaner than it was, but needs work. I have a cold, so I didn't feel like spending all day on it

Trimmed the hell out of my turbo inlet so it would fit, put the new front Tokico struts on with Prodrive Reds - will be removing for Cobb springs & putting the rears on as soon as I locate a spring compressor. Probably just rent one tomorrow. Looks like I'm an old school hot rod with the rear up at like 4" and the front @ like 2".

I have tokico struts on my car and love them! I had Cobb springs when I first got my car. I miss them.

Finally had some free time and installed my torque performance pitch stop and grimmspeed mc brace. While I had the IC off I figured I'd do the throttle body coolant mod.
Just received my new perrin sway bars and Endlinks hopefully going on tomorrow
