Default Poisoned's 02 WRX "build"

Well let me just start off as this isnt anything special, one day it may be but we'll see; otherwise I just want a place to share my car's story!

I bought this car in November 2013. It's my third car, first Subaru, first standard. It had 120xxx miles on it, with the heads, timing belt etc etc all done at 120k, turbo checked and anything with any form of failure replaced.

I will add/correct/fill in info as I can

Exterior:
A mix of Charge speed's version 1 and 2 body kit
(actual) Carbon Fiber 04 size hoodscoop
Kit was molded to the car (seams covered) but front is separating and I will be redoing front bumper and separating it then.
Car painted an Acura grey (Have identified yet- winter smh)
Hella Supertones in red (not installed yet)
6000k HID's
Blacked out headlight interior
Yellow Fogs (bulbs) clear housings (for now)
JDM pink grille badge
rear debadged and wingless (holes still there until new lid purchased)
Side mirror rain guards
35% tint all round (I believe)

Interior:
Broadway 270 mirror
STi seatbelt/harness covers
JVC headunit
Subaru winter floor mats
LED dome lights
OEM Boost gauge on steering column
JDM hazard switch
SCYTEK security system
(cant remember brand) Turbo timer (until I) remove it...)

Engine:
STi Topmount intercooler
Grimmspeed Air/Oil Seperator
RA(?) Strut tower brace
AEM Cold air intake
Perrin turbo inlet hose
Dual core radiator
Agency Power Stainless UEL headers - ceramic coated & heat wrapped
catless uppipe - ceramic coated & heat wrapped
Invidia 3" bell-mouth catless downpipe - ceramic coated & heat wrapped
3" Greddy Evo 2 catback
Drilled and slotted rotors
Stock subaru 16" w/ new winters (XXR 527's in spring)
Cobb AP v2 running a OTS stage 2 map until protune in spring

Transmission:
Cobb double adjustable Short throw Shifter
Cobb shift knob w/ blue base
Kartboy front and rear bushings (not installed yet)
Group-N STi Transmission mount (not installed yet)


This is the car as it sits now, many of the mods came with the car, some will be changed back to stock, some removed completely, some upgraded.

Not the best pictures but I will update.
No they are not that purple/blue. In photoshopping efforts to make it less dark that was the unintended side effect.

Main reason for repaint, bodykit wasnt primed properly so paint on front coming off. Needs some love in spring.






1/7/14 UPDATE:
So the winter(mainly ice and an idiot plow guy) has taken its toll on the front bumper, it looks even worse than it is because the body kit was never primed before paint so its more fragile than it should be. So what is my "fix" until I switch bumper setups?
This.


I also converted the instrument panel/HVAC and my lamco boost gauge to blue using t5 leds.





I also have an 04 WRX guage cluster thats on the way and will be converted to blue. Cool thing is, its got 500~ more miles than my car so all I have to do is wait for the right time and swap the cluster in and the mileage will still be correct!

At the end of the week assuming my paycheck is what I THINK it should be, I have v7 JDM STi front seats going in and USDM 04 STi rears to match.

I also spend a whopping $4 on side mirror visors. Good buy.



UPDATE 1/20
So the 04 cluster came in, I tried to convert it to blue by swapping LED's but found quickly like others that the needles dont illuminate well enough. So the 02 cluster got "converted" to blue. Now I'm debating weather to keep it 02 with blue or stock bulbs or 04 with stock bulbs when the mileage matches up in about 300 miles.

Also wanted to add some pictures of heat wrapped / coated agency power UEL headers, up-pipe, and downpipe and heat taped IC and heatshield because i had some laying around.
