Default Project STI Completed. Pics inside

Hey everyone! Wanted to show off the latest major project to roll out of Echelon Autosports. This Subaru STi which is the latest to come out of our shop showcases many different facets of what we can do here.

Kevin got a hold of us telling us what he wanted to do with his 07' STi to take it to a different level. This car is his daily driver but he wanted something that would stand out from the crowd. He already had a load of suspension parts on order for it so we came up with a plan to install all of the suspension parts, as well as setup the suspension and get it an alignment so the new 18x10 wheels would fit with the new Karlton Flares. This of course was in addition to us stripping down the entire car so we could give it a nice color change. Along with the suspension and paint we did a few other small things, installing new window tint, buffed out his headlights and installed a paint protection kit for him. All in all this was an extensive project but the end result is a Subaru STi that definately stands out from the crowd. Just take a look at the pictures from start to finish below and remember the next time you have a project in mind, think of us over at Echelon Autosports.

- Suspension Components Installed:
- Fortune Auto DreadNaught Coilovers
- Whiteline Front & Rear Sway Bars
- Kartboy Front & Rear Endlinks
- Whiteline Front Control Arm Inner Bushings
- Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings
- MSI 2" Rear Drop Arms
- TIC X-Brace
- Trailing Arms & Forward Trailing Arms Bushings
- ARP Extended Studs
- TIC Fender Cowl Braces

- Karlton Fender Flare Kit
- Complete color change paint job (Mercedes-Benz Titanium Grey Pearl)
- 18x10 Rota Grid Wheels w/ Spacers
- Polished headlights & Installed paint protection kit
- Additional

Now on to the pictures from beginning to end....

Why does it look like the driver side rear wheel poke out but the passenger side rear does not? Is this due to poor alignment or optical illusion?

I wish they made those flairs for the wagon body style. They'd sell so many.

Its also refreshing to see someone run tires that actually fit the rim rather than hella flush stretched non-sense.

Thats just a good old optical illusion you are seeing from the angles the pictures were taken.

The owner lives down in Maricopa and works nights but is a real good guy, Hopefully he will be able to bring it out to any meet sometime. We did all the work including the paint.
