Default My WRX and STI builds.

Hey guys,

I figured I would start a build thread. It's been awhile since i've used the forums. So here we go!

I started a youtube channel to document my car builds. I'm a total noob at filming and editing, but I'm giving it a try. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

I bought my 2006 WRX in April of 2020. Pretty much bone stock. Someone put the sti wing, and side skirts on it also some 04 tail lights. Besides that, stock. I did all the maintenance I could think of when I bought it. It's my daily driver, so I needed it running good. And it's treated me pretty good the past 10,000 miles.
Since then i've added quite a few parts, such as;

Here's my newest video.

I ended up having an issue with my engine timing, so I had to order some adjustable idler pulleys to get the timing back in order.

I got the IAG adjustable idler pulleys installed and my timing issue should be fixed now! Pretty happy about it. Check it out!

I needed to get the STI tuned, so I braved the cold weather and snow. Haha. Here's my newest video.

From the picture of your timing belt, your lower idler pulley is missing. I hope that got installed or maybe it was related to your timing problem.

That was just a picture I took while assembling the engine. I still don't know why the timing is off 10*. We were able to compensate in the tune by taking 10* off the entire map. Even the tune on the previous engine had to compensate in the tune. It's weird.
