First thing I ordered when I hit 7000km was Nameless performance muffler deletes and a K&N short ram. The intake in my opinion is not great. It sucks in too much air. The mufflers are pretty good. Nice sound but lots of drone. Not my pics but they are pretty much the same \/

Once that came I had a off the shelf map (Stage 1) from Perrin with at that point my new Cobb V2 access port and a Perrin recir by pass valve.

I was running Cobb Stage 1 for a little while and then I decided I wanted more power. So I was talking to my tuner and he recommended that I get a Catless Invidia Downpipe. Once I got that I took off this piece of garbage \/

And put on this beauty \/

I got that tuned up and got 267whp and 290wtq on 91 Octane

The following day I picked my little brother up and we went out for something to eat. While I was parked I noticed my car let out a weird shake.. So I quickly turned the car off. Fearing it was the common issue with sti (blown ring land) I called my tuner. He told
Me to do a couple tests and see what the Cobb AP was saying. It was reading a misfire on cylinder 4. He told me to bring it in the next day. When I brought it in he begun to do a compression test. She was reading 52psi on cylinder 4 when I do believe it supposed to be around 130psi. He told me my ring land was gone. Seeing at this point it was almost time for snow I put the car away for winter. (We still use salt in Newfoundland so I will not drive my sti in that dirt)

When I took it out the following April I brought it to my tuner. The car at this point only had a little over 13,000km on the engine. We started to scrap it...



Tied up and pulling the engine \/

Going back in the engine bay!\/



And she's back in


My tuner took the engine out on a Thursday, taking his time (2 hrs) and Friday he started at 3pm and at 3am the next day or morning however you want to look at it I was on my way home. It was a pretty nervous drive home.

Next I ordered: OEM rain guards
Blox shifter knob
Kartboy short shifter and bushings
Proto Cobb AP holder

When they arrived



During install



Comparison of stock shifter and kartboy shifter


After install


Install was fairly easy. It's best to jack the transmission up when putting on the bushings. The shifter itself is straight pretty forward

Next I got OBX header (which is garbage). Fitment of this header was horrible. The gaskets was like using toilet paper. The studs that for the up-pipe to turbo where way to long and protruded into the turbo so I had to sand down the studs. It rusted fairly quickly and the up-pipe ended up being away from the header by a half an inch.



And not long after that I ordered Perrin rad and pulley covers
Before


After


the front lip looks wavy cause i have water on the lens

I have a tint and hopefully vinyl work scheduled for next week if the vinyl comes in. I also have a Tomei fuel pressure regulator and gauge on the way (well soon, regulator is on back order till September), cusco catch can and hella super tone horns. The current tune has 272whp and 317wtq on 91 octane

This is how she is sitting..

Thanks! I got about 2 days lol when I was getting the stage 2 done my tuner said that one of my cylinders was getting low compression. I said if they went then I can just put something better in it.
