I don't have too many close-up engine shots. It's all pretty much stock WRX stuff. I'm running about 6 psi right now. It's very fun. FWD too. Any questions or comments are welcome. Thanks to all who I got parts from!

Thanks. I'm not sure yet. Hopefully I'll get it out to the track within the next few weeks. My goal is to break into the 14s. That's a good jump from a factory rated 17.00

Here is a list of my Subaru parts:

WRX TD04 turbo
WRX exhaust manifold with gutted OEM uppipe
WRX turbo back with gutted cats
WRX TMIC and BOV
Legacy turbo crossmember with WRX wagon swaybar
WRX waterpump
WRX fuel pump with RS adapters
WRX Lamco boost guage

With the exhaust manifold, the intake piping is a very tight fit. I'm thinking of getting some close up pics of that.

It's Tein S-tech with RS struts. They're advertised as 1.5" in the front and .7" in the back. It's pretty cozy. The tires are 205/45/16, so it sits in nice for a 16 inch wheel. The front passenger side seems to be a little high though, I think i might have put the strut mount on wrong.


Kinda dark but you can see


You can kinda see the difference there.

how would you rate the springs, are they stiff, do they give too much in the corners? I'm looking for a set of springs for auto-xing as well as daily driving and don't mind that they are stiff so long as they aren't like the cheap coilovers on Ricers.
Thanks, Micah

I would say that the S-techs wouldn't be the best for autocross, though they are cheap and they would work over all. S-techs are basically for show. If I could, I would definately upgrade to a higher model Tein.
