Default Bagged and Flared 05 Legacy

This is my build thread through legacygt.com so I will just copy/paste from there.

#1: 12-12-2012, 09:43 PM

I want to start this thread with a huge and I mean HUGE appreciation to PIA in Tacoma, WA and Andrew at Open Road Tuning. This project would not have been possible without their support. I am all about customer service and down to earth people that will help you out with anything. These guys have done that and more!

Hey everyone I am newer to the legacy world but have done tons of work on the Impreza platform. A little history on my last car, it was a 06 Subaru Wrx in WRB. It was my baby and I continuously worked on it.





Partial List of mods all installed by myself and a helping hand.
Rotated Gt3076r .60 hotside
Turboxs Fmic with Custom piping
Rotated Intake manifold
DW 1100cc Injectors
Boomba Fuel Rails
TGV Deletes done by Myself
Ver 7 STI Transmission and driveline
Brembo Brakes
Red Stuff Brakes Pads
EBC Slotted Rotors
HKS Carbon TI Exhaust
Tein Flex Coilovers with EDFC

I made 463WHP and 431WTQ on E85 on a Mustang Dyno
I then totaled the car, not from doing anything stupid either, but thats a story for another day.

So after I so wonderfully destroyed my pride and joy I searched around until I picked up this beauty.



She had 110k on her but has a perfectly straight body and perfect interior. So as soon as I picked it up I did the 100k service on it to be safe. After I sold my parts from the WRX I started picking up some pieces.

All of these parts could not have been installed if not for the help of all my buddies. Jarin, Travis and Nick. All of whom I love dearly.....haha.

The parts list that I have bought or am buying very soon.
Engine:
Cobb Accessport
Fast motorsports FMIC
ATP Garret 3076R .63AR
Deleted Top Feed TGV's
1100cc Injector Dynamics
8mm Phenolic Spacers
CP Pistons 99.75mm
Pauter Rods
ACL Race Bearings
Cobb Intake
Grimmspeed EBCS

Exhaust:
Invidia Q300 catback exhaust
06 WRX catless Up Pipe
Cobb Downpipe
3in Electronic Cut out
Grimmspeed Cross pipe
Grimmspeed EWG Up Pipe
44mm EWG

Suspension:
Airlift Airbag suspension
E-Level Kit
Cobb Rear Camber Arms

Exterior:
240SX Fender Flares
Work XD9 18X10 +18
Composite Racing Lugs

Random:
Brembo Brakes F&R
Nito 285/35/18
ACT Clutch
ACT lightened Flywheel
Transmission Blast Plates

So I started off installing my exhaust and a stage 2 tune. I made a little video of how it sounds. Its a little distorted because of the cell phone video but it still sounds good.



Then I did a mock up of the wheels and flares. I wanted to keep a really aggressive look with this ride and under no circumstances did I want any stretch on my wheel and tire setup. So I ended up with these.




This week I will be installing all of my goodies and taking some pictures as I go along. Thanks for reading and I hope some of you enjoy reading this project as much as I enjoy working on it. I will update this thread as much as possible.

Some of you might ask WHY IN THE WORLD ARE YOU BAGGING IT? Simple I want to maintain a nice ride height yet I want to be able to dump my ride when I am parked. I used to be static with my wrx and it was just too much of a pain in the ass trying to navigate around speed bumps or anything else that might make me drag. With bags I can drive around low and then lift my car for anything that might get in my way. On to the install!

So today I started my Bag install process by mounting the tank and Air Compressors today. It took me a long time trying to figure out how I wanted to mount them. This is just a rough draft setup until I get my tank painted.



All the wires will be ran underneath the carpet tmrw. The entire goal of this setup is to only have the tank and compressors visible. Enough writing for today I will update this on Friday after I accomplish more work!

DAY 2:

Well today was slow yet steady, running wires and making sure everything was mounted correctly was my main goal. My right hand man Travis and I were able to get most of the wiring ran today as well as a few other things. We still need to zip tie all the wires together and make it look nice and neat. But that will be after we make sure it all works. Onto some pics.

As I said before all these wires will be cleaned up after we make sure that everything is working.

We also got the front struts all mounted up as well as my Brembo brakes and rotors.

Don't mind the surface rust. They have been sitting on my shelf since I totaled the Wrx. haha. They will clean up after the first drive around the block.

The Third thing we accomplished today was the painting of the tank. Made sure I cleaned it up real good and there was no oil spots. A couple of light dusting coats and a couple of heavy coats, this is what came out of it.



It turned out really nice and looks amazing in good light. My buddy will be taking some quality pictures of it when this is all said and done.
I also picked up some more goodies today.

Some nice lugs!


My wheel center caps.


And lastly my Fast Motorsports FMIC


#31: 12-16-2012, 11:45 AM

Well Time for an update. Yesterday was slightly frustrating to say the least. The struts that were ordered for the rear will not fit. So I called up my friends at PIA and was able to get my hands on 2010 wrx struts. After comparison they were the exact same height and diameter. They also have the same mounting style with a small difference. The bottom of the strut where the mounting bolt goes through is slightly smaller. A little drilling should fix that and I won't have to worry about piecing a kit together with a universal kit. So I then called up Open Road Tuning and within a few minutes Andrew said we could definitely do an exchange no problem. I love good customer service! So onto some pictures of what was accomplished yesterday.

We mounted the tire with my new lugs and checked clearances. We were trying to figuring out how much of my fender I will have to cut and modify. We also went full wheel lock to make sure I have clearance on the inner fender wall. And I do!

We also remounted the tank, blocked off all unused ports, and ran the fittings required for the air lines and such.



And finally we mounted the rear brembo's as well. This took some time as the rear brembo adapter brackets from fastwrx.com DO NOT fit how they should. So this required some small modifications to the rear hub. Your rear dust covers are also too small so you will have to bend or cut your covers. I went with bend as this still leaves you with some protection against rocks getting into your calipers and rotor.



That is all we accomplished yesterday. Today I hope to get the FMIC mounted and the front bumper modified to fit. The reason I am doing this is for clearance issues with my wheels and tires. I am hoping to flare out the bumper on the wheel wells by bending the inside bumper brace. I will take pictures to day to show what I mean. Time to get to work!

Well today I can't spend much time working on the car because the wife demands some time. So all I did was install the FMIC and trim the bumper to fit nicely. I also completed some random odds and ends.




With the front bumper back on I can start modding the fenders! That will be a tmrw or later tonight job. Depending on how long my leash is tonight. haha

#46: 12-17-2012, 09:13 PM

Well guys today was a long stressful day. Not really stressful...just really not wanting to mess anything up. So today started off with mounting the fender flares where i want them and then measuring.... a multitude of times. After I figured out where I wanted them to sit i outlined the inside of the fender with chalk. I then took a permanent marker and marked where the chalk was, after that it was go time.



Just so you know, I have done a lot of work on these cars. This is more nerve racking than starting up your car for the first time after replacing everything under the hood. So after cutting the first time, I put the wheels back on and lowered the car. I need to cut more. So I remounted the fender flares and remeasured, I have another inch i can take off. My chalk was too fat to get all the way up there. So I cut it again.



So after cutting it again, I ran into another problem. The wiring is hanging too low! So after removing some brackets and tucking the wiring up higher. I lowered it back down.



Now we are getting somewhere! I have about another 1/4 to 1/2 inch or so that I can lower the car before I start rubbing on the inner fender. But I need to adjust the coils to go lower before I can do that.

So the next day I get available will be used for cutting the rear fenders. I also ordered the rear struts today and will hopefully be seeing those in the next week or so.

And one last photo to show some tire sticking out!



I also rolled the lip of the fender to keep sharp metal away from my tire with a fender roller. I don't have a picture of that unfortunately.

So today was dedicated to the rolling of my fenders and also cutting the rears. So started by dropping the car as far as possible with the wheels on in the rear. After that I mocked up the fender flares and marked away with a marker.



After that cut time.



So this cut shows the inner fender liner for the rears. These are metal in the rear. The fronts do not have these. So you have to cut the inner liner as well and push them up behind the fender. After you do that you should have something that looks like this.



So after sanding down the lip and cleaning it up. We lowered it back down and got something that looks like this.



Don't mind me up front giving the fenders a little pull



So I have my car as low as I can humanly get it with the size tires I am running right now. So after I burn these tires up. I will be buying smaller ones with a ever so slight stretch on them if any. The tires I have now are too tall to put this thing on the ground. But for this big of tires 3 inches off the ground isn't too shabby.

Somebody asked for a picture of this so I will throw it in here. I still need to do a little sanding on the lip to make it look more even all the way around.



Enjoy guys!

#76: 12-22-2012, 08:07 PM

So no new pics for the day but we did complete the wiring for the system. Everything lit up correctly and the pumps kicked on. So we finished running all the air lines and running the sensor lines. After that we put the seats back in and alot of other panels. Here is a little sneak peak of the air working.

Sry guys its taking so long to get updates but the project has slowed down as I am getting to the finer points of the build. So I have been working on the right rear fender flares. The wheel was not fitting up all the way into it. So I cut it and refiberglassed it.



Right now I am sanding it down over and over and adding more layers of glass. So I'm not going to keep putting pictures up of that. I also started to debadge the rear trunk, that looks ugly as hell so far. haha.



#107: 01-06-2013, 08:14 PM

So guys sry about the long ass wait on the update. I have been pretty busy between work and all the holidays and waiting for more parts to come in. We all know how shipping is around the holidays.

Anyway I finally received my adjustable rear camber arms and got those all installed. They are pretty awesome and look a hell of a lot better than the stock stuff haha.



And Installed!



I also received my front lip and installed it as well.



As you guys know I blew my turbo right before I parked it. The reason for replacing the turbo now. I was going with a gt3076r but I have already ran that turbo. So until I pick a turbo I actually want to run I am going to run a vf39. But I went ahead and installed my injectors, fuel rails, turbo inlet, grimmspeed ebcs, phenolic spacers, top feed and deleted tgv's. Here is a pic or two of a messy engine bay. haha





I also got the front fender flares installed and one of the rear fender flares finished.

Well Guys I tore apart the motor this weekend and there was nothing wrong with it at all! No bad bearings, nothing loose or burnt up or anything! So while I have the motor apart I might as well build it.
I also picked up my ATP 3076R turbo, inlet, and intake. I will also be picking up a wrx clutch and lightened flywheel. I haven't decided on what other goodies I will be getting while I am at it. I am going to try and put the car on the ground this weekend and get some pictures for you guys of how low I can get it. Which unfortunately, isn't low enough for me. I might get different tires while I am away, we will see. But until then here is another picture!





Also if you guys were at this point with the motor out and all what would you buy?

#185: 01-18-2013, 08:45 PM

Worked on the car for a bit. Don't have a whole lot I can do without the engine. But worked on the headlights and took some pics. haha.

Sorry, we're aware of this issue -- the Legacy hubs are different and they do have to be clearanced a little -- and we note it on the Brembo kit page for Legacy on our site, but it's not noted on the the WRX adapter page. I'll correct that.

Oh awesome! The clearance issues really weren't bad you just have a little grinding to do on the hub assembly or on the brackets. I went with grinding on the hubs since they have a little more meat to shave away.

Thanks for all the comments guys! Should have some high res photos on the way tonight or tmrw.
