Never really had a build thread for any of my projects just because I don't have enough damn time. Always busy with work and when I'm working on the car I'm usually in a rush so I never have time to stop and take pictures. I hope this time around I can cover most of the progress and keep you guys up-to-date fairly often. I hate it as much as the next person when a build thread goes on forevvveeerrrrr haha.

My last build on here was a 2002 WRX Wagon. Stock 2.0L, e85, FP 68hta, 411whp/407wtq. I loved the car, but I got wind of a good deal on a CTS-V and had a fire sale on the Wagon and sold it with a TON of mods for 8,000 dollars. I lost my ass out on it but it went to a good guy and it stayed pretty much the same as when I sold it to him. Ever since I sold the wagon, I had the urge to get another Subaru. I have owned over 10 and there was never really a time I didn't own one. Fast forward a year, I got tired of my 600whp CTS-V and sold it. Picked up a Yukon XL for a daily and a future tow rig. Now (August 2010) it was time to get something I want to mod/track that is affordable.

A couple of months goes by and early March 2011 comes around and the company I was working for at the time decided that we are going to expand the company to Dallas, TX. This requires me to pack up and head on out. So end of March I pack up my stuff, load up and move to North Dallas. Between work and scouting out new locations I started to fall back into my old roots and wanted to pick up another Subaru. With all the open track days in this state (Texas) I couldn't help but want to get something newer and track-able. Here what I ended up with;

Bone stock 2008 STi. Had set of Rally Armor mudflaps on it and that was it for modifications. I was just happy I could find a stock GRB that wasn't beat to ****. Seems like everyone gets them and does bolt on's without a tune and sells them back to the dealer when they start having problems. Luckily this wasn't the case.

And then it starts

May 2011; Invidia Downpipe, TurboXS Catback, RCE Yellows, Whiteline Endlinks, Whiteline Rear Diff Bushings, Whiteline Rear Subframe Bushings, Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings.

June 2011;
ETS Intercooler, Cobb Intake, Cobb Accessport, Torque Solution Motor Mounts, Torque Solution Pitch Stop Mount, Torque Solution Driveshaft Carrier Bushings, Torque Solution Shifter Bushings, Torque Solution License Plate Delete.
