Default El Tor0's 2011 WRX trackable street car build

Hey guys,

I thought it was about time I created my own page to compile all the modification and whatnot I have done to my car. This is a 2011 WRB WRX that i got back in August 2011. I had my eyes set on one of these for a while and finally ponied up the cast to make a nice down payment on one. This was right after the tsunami has hit Japan and i was lucky enough to get one of the last ones on the east coast, 0 miles on it at that! The car came with a few goodies from the factory like the extended arm rest, 8 in sub, and the STS.

My ultimate goal for this car was to have something that i could drive around on the street easily as it would be covering DD as its my only car, but still be able to take it out to the track every once and a while and have some fun. I couldn't afford the STi when i bought the car and didn't want the added insurance cost as well. This offered me the opportunity however to modify a bit at a time and learn about the platform as I go.

Had the car for about a month before I started the downward spiral that is car modification. NASIOC has been an enourmous source of help as anytime i get ready to do a modification I hit the forums for research. I'm no mechanic but I can search and follow a set of directions. I feel that bears repeating for all the other greenhorns out there looking at this. I got all the imformation I needed to mod my car propely from searching on nasioc and speaking with their certified vendors.

Current Mod list:

Exterior:
HT Autos Lip Kit
Grimmspeed license Plate cover
Some vinyls to cover up ugly chrome stuff
20% window tint
Osram nightbreakers
Interior:
Blacked out pillars, headliner, and some miscellaneous STi parts
Prosport evo gauges
Suspension/Drivetrain:
24mm Front 22mm Rear Whiteline swaybars + endlinks
Cusco H and A braces
Cusco Rear subframe race
Whiteline rear subframe inserts
Whiteline Positive traction Diff inserts
Comp stage 2 clutch and lightweight flywheel
Factory SS
TurninConcepts shifter bushings (all)
TurninConcepts crossmember bushings
Group N Trans mount 5mt
Power:
COBB SRI box
Grimmspeed EBCS
CNT topmount coated
Invidia Q300 + Catless DP wrapped
Agency Power UEL headers coated and wrapped
Grimmspeed Up pipe w/ Tial 38mm EWG coated and wrapped
Perrin inlet pipe
Perrin Turbo Blanket
DW 265L fuel pump
NKG 1 step colder plugs
PSI Proformance pro tune
Brakes/Wheels:
OZ Superleggera 17x8 on stock rubber
H&R 25mm spacers.
Rear fenders rolled/slight pull
2007 STi Brembo conversion with ATe Super Blue
DBA t2 rotors
KNS ver 2 brackets
Goodrich SS lines
Grimmspeed Master cylinder brace
HAWK HPS street pads
Carbotech AX6 autocross pads

So enough babbling on my part, here's some pictures.

The day i got her


First few suspenison mods(in no specific order) F/R Swaybars and endlinks, H brace, rear subframe brace, Subframe inserts, positive traction diff inserts, group N trans mount, Shifter and crossframe bushings.






Next came some more power over the following year spanning stage 1 COBB map to the current TP stage 3 map im running.

car looks great! For the rear brembo's how much of the knuckle did you have to grind down for the adapter brackets to fit? Also what did you use to grind it down? I debating whether to get the 08+ (direct bolt on but harder to find) or the gold rears and get the brackets.

Not much at all, you really just want to take of the outer casting flesh until you start to see the smooth metal underneath. I used a dremel with a round grinder wheel to take care of it in a few seconds.


I also used KNS brakes how to for the install, they have a few pics so you can see what im talking about

Default Protune and other goodies

So over the winter my clutch began slipping and needed a replacement. since its not something i wanted to do in the middle of winter on jack stands I took it to a local performance shop in Landsdale PA (PSI proformance). they hooked me up with a Stg 2 Comp clutch and a lightweight flywheel.

Some months later after the clutch was nice and broken in, I decided to bring her back in for a Tial EWG and a pro tune. Steve hooked me up with 2 separate maps, one for the road and one for when i hit the track. the road tune is set to a conservative 18.5psi and the track tune is set at 21psi. Overall one of the best mods I've done so far. the power is nice and smooth with no hesitation, and then rips when you press the pedal down.

In for the EWG and tune


Car made 303hp and 347tq running 18.5psi. No sheet for the track tune, but its obviously a bit higher

I'm happy to be in the 300's and love the tune. nothing left now but to get ti to the track for some real fun!
