Yes, we did


Patiently awaiting more mods to become available... I think we're going to change over to Perrin for the exhaust from the Greddy Evo 3.

In the meantime...

Any particular reason you're going to switch over?

Very cool - Thanks for the update. I think I too will disable my DRL's, at least until people can figure out how to make the C light the DRL instead (if it's possible at all)

We are using a Greddy Evo 3 cat-back from the GR chassis. It works, but it does not fit. A couple hangers are a bit short and the exhaust tips rub ever so slightly on the OEM diffuser, so they melted the inner corners. We are testing quite a few to see what works and what doesn't, but we assume that most manufacturers will have to make some tweaks to their cat-backs for this car.

Otherwise, if you don't mind that stuff, works just fine

Working on it, we promise!



Also, we just wrapped up filming our other project Bar & Track with the WRX as our feature car. We'll have the WRX on track and be down in Omaha's Old Market for the episode. Check out the preview




If you are interested in the show, you can check out first full episode where we are at Road Atlanta. That will give you an idea of what we are doing with the WRX

Wow! Loving those WedsSport wheels. Curious about the rub as well. Throw the lower lip in the front and it will look fantastic!

No rubbing and the fenders are untouched

Any idea how much those WedsSports weigh? Also, can you guys get a shot looking down from the fenders to show poke?

We put them on our shipping scale and they are just over 20 lbs.

How is this for a shot? Don't have one going from the front, but it should give you an idea.

A Little snippet from our lighting thread that you can follow here, as well.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2633423

Now that we got these 2015 models out in the wild, it's time to start modifying....

Not much has been released for these cars in terms of performance and exterior styling, so in the meantime, we can get started on some lighting upgrades. We hope these videos will help you guys out on installing and choosing what lighting upgrades you'll be doing to your 2015 WRX or 2015 STI.

Let's start off with fog lights...

Awesome! Any issues rubbing the splash guard under the turbo skid plate at this height? Thinking about using this exact set up except maybe SA-55M blue instead. Might be a little too expensive for a daily driver though...

Nope not at all and we've got a steep driveway incline as well.


Put on an Invidia Q300 this past weekend too

So now that you've tried the Greddy Evo 3, Perrin resonated quad tip, and Invidia Q300 TI quad tip; Which do you guys think sounds the best and why?

Yes! I'd love to hear SubiSpeed's opinion as well.

We're not done yet, got a few more to do and then we'll give our overall opinion.

So far I like the look of the Greddy the best, and the Q300 for sound. More to come on this though.

I thought you couldn't use LED's as DRL's, since the DRL resistor causes the regular halogen high-beam bulb to run at approximately half-power when in DRL mode. As LED's have such low power draws to begin with, it won't be noticeable in the day; how is it operating in your above picture at such brightness? My guess is you don't have it in DRL mode at all, but you are showing us the high-beam turned on?
