Well this isn’t really a build thread as nothing has been built and hopefully nothing motor wise will be anytime soon. I live in Hawaii where there is one AWD dyno and no reputable tuner that stays here. I believe a tuner flies in once a year but no way in hell I will have a tune done by someone that comes once a year. So I will be focusing on aesthetics. I suffer from OCD and the fact that everything needs to be legit and fit perfect is a serious problem. I have done trial and error on my previous years and feel like this is it. Doing it right the first time with the right parts and taking my time doing it. My goal is to stick with a lot of OEM/OEM JDM parts and other well known brands. Everything purchased is after long, careful consideration. I like the clean functional look. But this Island is so limited on everything, and shipping sucks. Well here is my car. Not much I know.

Those pictures look great. I love how you use the beauty to accentuate the sea


No, really though, those are great pictures. I remember when you had your 2011 DGM sti. What brought you back?

I rolled my fenders and now have zero rubbing. If you where to just lower your car rolling the rears with 20mm would be fine

I missed the Subaru man honestly. I was looking at a few cars and always came back to the STi. I really enjoy my car everyday.

Awesome man. Let me know ahead of time and I can get you hooked up with a place. I know some people who have tiny little beach houses on the North Shore they are very "Cute" she would love it. Stay a couple nights there you know.

Just picked up a new Kicker ZX1000.1 amp and placed an order for a Audio Integrations 10in inclosed. Now on the hunt for a JL W3.

So I was a little busy over the weekend and got a lot done that I have been trying to finish. I got my amp, box, and sub installed. I also finally mounted my tank, compressor, and management. Then I built a false raised floor. I know its not all plush but you can't see any of it. I am more of a function then show. I won't even show off the floor. I wanted it to look as factory as possible. All together the trunk build cost me about $60.

Honestly I couldn't be more happy that I went with Air. I have full control of where the car sits. Adjusting over bumps lowering it on straights for awesome photos, being about to air out when parked. It is definitely a head turner. Especially when people hear the air releasing. I get how do you drive that low? everyday lol. The ride is so smooth as well. It was bumping at first but after break in and adjustments it couldn't be better.
