Default 2013 STi (WRB 5 door) stage 2 build - Mightymint's style !

Well, I decided to move on from my 2005 STi. I sold her, and picked up a Brand new Hatch in WRB.

I really thought I would miss my 2005 more than I do, but we will see how time tells. There was allot I liked about my 2005, and honestly, I plan on buying another as a second car in a couple of years. Either that or a 2007.

Anyways, onto the new. This will be my build/ customizing thread to share photos with you as I update her.

Picked her up from San Antonio on 13/10/12 after waiting only 5 days from ordering. Got extremely lucky and someone cancelled on the same car that I ordered pretty much. Got it for invoice too. Currently has about 400 miles on her, so still breaking it in!

I decided to go fairly easy on it for the break in, rarely going up to 4000RPM, been over a couple of times but just for a second. Tried about 60% throttle a couple of times today, just because I feel like it needs to see a little load.
I think I may do a 500 mile oil change, and maybe go for a 1500-2000 mile break in. We shall see.

2013 5 door STi in WRB
Short shifter
SPT exhaust ( I did not want this, but it came with it anyways)
Floor lighting kit






One thing I really missed about my 2005 was my Gymkhana exhaust, so today I set about installing one on this one which happens to be the twin tip now:





( Revving to 2500 RPM in the video there)

Sounds great so far, but I will have to remove the resonator this week.
I also ordered some rally armor flaps which should come this week.
Next is to get the wheels coated and get a lip.

Any good suggestions on a lip for this thing?


Edit: Painted the intercooler



Edit: Added mudflaps




2013 STi Gymkhana 2 Exhaust, no resonator


Thanks, and check back! Things will get fun!

Yeah I am willing to sell it, shipping might be kinda sucky but that can be figured out. I am at least willing to ship it unlike most users. It has like 140 miles on it, so brand new. I guess I will PM you.

Nice car! I can't wait for my 2013 WRB WRX premium hatch to come in as well. I'm thinking about painting the intercooler with SPT instead of STI like your. But I was wondering wouldn't the paint kinda clog up those area? What kind of paint did you use?

I was hoping the tail lights aren't clear. Are you planning on fogging or painting them at all? Kinda want ot see how they look on a WRB hatch haha.

I agree, it might be super functional power wise but on the looks side it's pretty ugly.

Honestly, im not really worried about how it looks. Although it does look better in person. I just like the sound of it, that's all that really matters to me on it!
