Default Jewbaru V. 2.0 Project

Well I'm sure a few people have noticed I haven't been showing up to the meats lately. Been UBER busy with court related stuff. Basically I'm coming to a huge sum of money and I'm using it to build myself a new wrx for myself as a little gift for a lot a BS I've been dealing with for the past year.
This is going to be my log for every step I make with this thing, so here we go;

I'm going to be picking up a brand new 2013 wrx premium WRB hatch from RK in about 2-3 weeks. Talked to Unabomber and he hooked me up with a friend of his (sam) that is saving me a bunch of cash on the following parts:

Perrin status seats
Perrin red front strut bar
Invidia cat-back titanium
Invidia down pipe
cobb AP
Mishi radiator X-line
Mishi blue hose kit
Rally armor mud flaps
Perrin silver shroud
stoptech lines
Perrin fuel rail kit
Perrin blue inlet
Perrin CAI
Perrin TMIC
GT Spec unequal
Cosworth Manifold
Defi gauge boost 52m
AEM UEGO
Perrin maual boost controller
Blitz harness
Whiteline 24mm adjustable
Whiteline 22 mm adjustable
Front and rear endlinks
BC racing coilovers

And I'm getting a set of Work emotion XD9 18x10 5x100 +18 from another vendor.
Still deciding whom will do the tune on it. The only reputable shop I've found is IAG.
All I'm waiting on right now is to sit down with the judge next week to finalize some paperwork. pictures will be uploaded. I welcome any SERIOUS advice and help in anyway. If you're just going to hate on me then keep it to yourself.

What does it matter? people are going to ask me over and over so I might as well just put it out there now and steer clear of the annoying questions. Not like anyone is gonna be able to get it from me. All of it will be gone soon enough. Either in the car, bills & debts or investments.

Plus it's not the exact amount. That's a rounded amount. But I'll remove it anyways

keeping the turbo stock?

Cosworth manifold might not benefit you unless you're trying to rev to like 8k from what I've read.

None the less, still gonna be badass when you're done.

My motor went baaaad. Decided up front the shop building the motor specified break-in and did the tune. So no finger pointing if things went bad.

Your project's a bit different starting with a new motor, with bolt ons. But after the install you need a tune so why not pick a place that does both?

Also, suggest you break-in the engine without mods, then mod and tune. But consult your shop of choice 1st on break-in procedure and break-in before/after and your mods. You'll have a second opinion to consider.

I used IAG due to mechanical rep, consultation, AP pro-tune and Jorge. After 50k miles still think the same.

Why a new WRX instead of a used STi?

Seeing as how you want aggressive fitment wheels, 5x114.3 is the way to go.

Oh, and Cosworth intake manifold on the stock turbo?

I already plan on doing a break in before mods aside from exhaust, wheels&tires, suspension, audio, interior stuff and remote start. all the other bolts will come after the break in. I'm installing everything myself unless I come up with any problems. But I'm pretty sure I'm going with IAG for tune and alignment. And in regards to the forementioned intake manifold, it's mostly to get rid of the ugly plastic one and to allow me to throw on a bigger turbo when I'm ready for one. I've already looked into it to see if it will be a problem with the stock turbo but it won't be so things should be fine.

I dont want an STI or to buy used around here. Also I don't want to travel for used/new car. I didn't go for the new STI because of it's cost and the fact that it has WAY to much gadgets for me. I don't need electronic bs for my diff and the ECU. The AP will be enough for me. with the premium I get the same sized motor and turbo and with the money I save with getting the premium I am able to get parts that make it faster than the STI.

I SECOND this... I think modding a used STi/ WRX would be a btr choice. A 2013 will loose so much value as soon as it rolls off the lot. If u find one w/ low miles, 2010 +, the money saved can be used somewhere else.

See everyone says that, assuming I plan to only keep it for a few years. I plan on keeping it until it dies. I wouldn't buy a BRAND NEW car thinking of it's future resale. Also from what I've seen with buying used cars around here and pretty much everywhere else, I'm also purchasing the previous owner's mistakes/mods/whatever. With a new car I know no one has messed with it and I know what to expect and it has a warrenty. "But the mods you throw on will void the warrenty" 90% of the mods are able to be easily replaced with OEM. I plan on keeping all my OEM parts. I just advise everyone to give up on mentioning anything about a used car because I don't plan on getting a used car at all. I have my plan and I'm sticking to it

What makes you say you don't need 3 diffs? 3 diffs > 2 diffs. The AP might be enough but there's convenience in just turning the drive knob to select a map instead of having to flash a map manually.

Yes, you can make your WRX faster than the STi. However, making the WRX faster than a STi will only lead to broken parts (which is entirely dependent on how you drive). If you were looking for just a stage 2 build, then I'd understand.

Do what you will, I'm just being devil's advocate. The one thing your car definitely won't need is the Cosworth intake manifold. That's big coin for a mod that you nor nobody else will notice until you pop your hood. Use that money elsewhere.

If you want big power, save up for a built trans. Another reason to get the STI is the strong 6 speed.

You did post the exact dollar amount. Only thing you didnt include were how many cents. Don't play it off like you didn't.

Want some SERIOUS advice? Don't brag about money on the internet. Don't post about your state of legal affairs on the internet. It'll just come back to bite you in the ass.

yyyyyea no. A: would have taken all my settlement to pay for it when I also need to pay off debt B: I hate the GTRs. As a HUGE skyline fan, the gtr is a slap in the face of the legacy that is the Skyline GTR. But regardless, I'll consider everyones input on the manifold. I just hate popping the hood and seeing that plastic junk in there. It bothers me. Maybe get it hydro-graphiced? Maybe paint it and possibly grind off the excess plastic in between the ports? Any ideas? So far I've only seen replacements for the manifold, never the stock plastic one painted or anything. I just want it more visually appealing for me.

Dude chill! I changed it to keep you quiet and apparently that wasn't good enough. And NO that's not the EXACT dollar amount. Also if you know anything about this forum, people would eventually start asking me "where does and E4 get the money to get a brand new wrx and all these parts in a month?" so it's whatever. The amount is gone so get off your soap box. this was suppose to be something besides a place for people to go and be a hateful

Ew. Well, that's ok if he's going stancey. I'm guessing that's what he's going for. Don't need 3 diffs to park!

Fine, I'll put it this way. I'd rather be able to drive and enjoy my car however I choose instead of having my ass pucker every time I touch the gas pedal. Fair enough?
