I think some perspective is required here. My parents consider my Impreza heavily modified because it has mudflaps and I took out an unnecessary cargo shield thing.

these two statements plus the fact that it is a 2011 tell me that you should stop your quest now...


if you aren't prepared to build/rebuild the motor, and if you aren't prepared to do suspension, and if you aren't prepared to have any possible powertrain or powerplant warranty claims denied, then you should seriously rethink this. fact of the matter is that even if you are on the best tune and the best behavior possible, **** still happens sometimes. driving a heavily built car daily is not exactly as predictable or reliable as before. if you don't have a fallback car or a rainy day fund, you are going to put yourself in a pretty rough situation.


also, if you aren't fairly knowledgeable in cars, performance mods, and have a slight idea of how and what to log and when, you are going to have a much harder time with this than someone who knows all that stuff.

I've had a vf34 set up on my car for over 90k miles with no issues or maintenance that's any different than a stock car. Well, 3rd gear broke but that may have happened with a stock turbo too. I've done a good amount of suspension work, put on 06 WRX brakes, track and autox the car.

I don't consider my car necessarily heavily modified. From someone driving a bone stock WRX it probably sure is, but someone with a forged internals, huge turbo, coil overs, roll cage, DOT tires, meth tuned STI would see it differently.

Why don't you tell us your plans for the car and people with those mods can give you a run down on their cars reliability.

Listen guys, I more or less wanted to hear some of your daily driven beast builds. I never once even said I was going to heavily modify my vehicle. I do not consider where I'm at (stage 2) to be heavily modified. I think the farthest I'll go with my 11' is pump, injectors, and a process west Tmic and a retune....until she's paid off. I know that probably won't reach my goal of 350 awhp, but I'm ok with that at this point. And ill never lower a vehicle in the area in which is reside. I scrape everywhere now lol. The plan is to kind of plan it by ear, because I am addicted to going fast, but I'm not really in a position to go all out at this point, but I hope to be in the near future. However I do appreciate the tips and advice

Built STI shortblock hybrid 2.5L with built 6MT. Daily drive it on e85 tune. I only wish this town had on ramps to get the most fun from the tune but that's not the car's fault
Probably have under 12K miles on this last rebuild. Does come with a price, I've probably put about 15k more than I expect to spend into this car due to previous transmission/engine issues.

This monster was my daily driver

I had more money in my heads alone than what most have into their subies Ok maybe not than most, but more than a lot. Total investment, including the 26k I paid for the car itself, came out to a little over $60k.

Yeah, 34k in mods.

I hear ya, that's why it's a tough decision. I'll probably wait until the car is paid off to go hard or go home

This looks nice. I like fast Foresters! What fuel did you have it on? Any dyno numbers or 1/4 slips?

Pump plus meth injection. No dyno numbers because dynos are for dyno queens.


It got wheelspin from a roll in 4th gear Based on my experience building other high end subies for customers, 500whp is a safe assumption.

In theory, rolling to about half throttle in 6th gear may or may not have gotten it up to a completely arbitrary 147.9mph (gps high score on my head unit, had it ever happened) while feeling like it was in a gentle cruise.



Of course this is just speaking hypothetically.

They were Cosworth cams. With this much porting work on the heads

With Ferrea stainless intake valves and Manley inconel exh valves.

And this turbo setup

A good setup nonetheless... But that's a basic turbo upgrade with supporting mods. There's not really a built car. Built - motor work. I think this thread is about reliability on built motors and alternative fuels.

I respectfully disagree sir. The point of this thread, was basically geared towards anyone around stage 3 or higher. In that way I kinda left it open ended just to hear set ups and mileage. But built motors and alternative fuels such as E85 are obviously welcomed.

Wheelspin in 4th? Seems like bad tires or wet roads or something. That looks like an awesome setup, but $34k is a ton of money for 500WHP. I'm guessing that not all of that money went into go-fast parts.

That's a good guess because you can see coilovers, a sway bar, BBS wheels and Brembos in the photo.

It is probably possible to spend that much on a built short block, built heads, rotated turbo kit, FMIC, all new fuel setup, etc. But that total probably does include wheels/Brembo's/etc...

For your mod I got one rule


Plan for the worse... Or I prefer: ***** will happen. Plan accordingly.

If your pocket cannot handle a break down for your daily drive, don't go that way. Everything can go wrong even is everyone run ok.

Modding is a uncertain hobby. Sometimes it's strong sometime it can easily broke.

Sure monitoring your car is better, but nothing can guarantee it.

If you have an accident does insurance cover the mod? If not it cold cost you a lot of money to repair.
