Is it possible to get a STI without the wing?

Yes. There is a factory option that you can order it without the wing. Or you can get one with a wing and do a trunk swap with a wrx owner.

Hey everyone,

Been trying to be more active on my youtube chanel as it's a great way to talk through my thoughts and review on everything I am doing to this car. There doesn't seem to be as much communication on the forums anymore, so trying to keep it alive! Check out my latest videos below if you are interested! More to come!

I too was one of you. Until I experienced it in real life and laughed my butt off on how fun it is.

Keep in mind, this can be turned on/off. Also can easily control it via throttle input.

I've been next to a STi when he was doing the burble noises...

I know it can be turned on/off just wish it was never created.

Jamie convinced you, eh?

Admittedly I like the sound of the STI with the burble a helluva lot more than the FA20 with a burble tune...was next to one on I-84 coming back home a couple days ago and it's just...bleh lol.

But props to you doing what you love with the car while you can

Haha Jamie's car is nutty, but I've always wanted one every since they started to come out on the e9x m3's. Saw they started offering it on the Subaru platforms and it intrigued me. Went with Brentuning due to their rep and great customer service and saw they had the burble add on. I figured why not. I have the car now, enjoy it.

That makes sense! And yeah Jamie's car is NUTS. I've ridden behind it only once, and my tinnitus is ringing now just thinking about it

Truth be told I'm debating Bren now; I've been riding around on Cobb Stage 1 for like eight months and I'm tired of it and want to secure my engine's longevity a little longer until I eventually do what you're doing and sell it. Either way, think I wanna do my spark plugs first.

Haha Jamie is stage 2 though, so his might get your tinnitus ringing a bit more. Although, I've been considering picked up a grimmspeed DP and getting re-tuned by Bren for that. Maybe next spring.

Cobb stage 1 is ok. It definitely smoothed things out, but it was still really choppy for me. I was getting data all over the place with that map.

I'm really happy with my decision to go with Bren. The response time was insane and they were great through the entire process. Couldn't be happier with my experience and overall feel of the car.

Full step by step car wash video I did this past weekend. I get a lot of questions on my process and products, so I figured I would make a video.

The canards look great, not a fan of the fin on the lip though, looks too Autozone

The wash/detail video was solid and very detailed, but you might want to think about cutting the length of it down to something around 10-15 minutes since most people won't watch much more than that. You could do things like hyperlapse the wheels and wash mitt sections, time when you're off camera, when the pressure washer is running, etc. You can also keep your audio over any hyperlapse portions so you're not skipping details or things you want to be sure to mention!

That said, I do understand wanting to fully document the full process without skipping much, and it's a solid video either way!

The blades have been on since August. It's a different look, but definitely adds to the aggression of the front end. It looks better in person than the pictures portray.

My goal isn't to make short quick, mind numbing videos. I just want to inform people with information. I am not in it for the money (obviously) or to gain subscribers or become a youtuber. I set up my camera and washed my car. I want people to see that and have explanation as to what I am using and why I am using it. In the beginning of the video, I even explained it's going to be long and not for everyone. But there are people out there that do enjoy the detailed, longer format videos. I know I do (IE: Matt from Obsessed garage).

I am just a normal dude in the garage who likes cars. Not trying to hide that and I am sure many people can relate to it. Social media these days are filled with 20 something year olds buying $100k+ worth of cars and car parts in a day and making a video on modifying their cars. When in reality a normal average joe, it would take months, even years to accomplish this. Yes, it is entertaining, but it's filling the minds of younger people with hopeless dreams that this is the "norm" and if it doesn't get accomplished, they have failed. My only hope is to be a representation of what "norm" is and having just one car to play with and what can be done. If my videos end up being 2 hours long, then so be it. The information is out there for people to use if they want. Otherwise, it's easy to move along onto a 10 minute video with filler drone shots and b roll.

That's pretty spot on, it's ridiculous to see the number of "What did I get for the XYZ today!?!?" videos on Youtube, and trying to filter those out to find quality content can be difficult. And you're right, the massive media presence portrays a different reality than what most will experience.

I do appreciate the time and level of detail (hah) you put into your videos, I hope I didn't come off as rude. I did watch the full thing because I too can appreciate it as just a normal dude who enjoys cars. I left a comment on a previous video saying you should do a wash/detailing one when you discussed what should be next, so it was pretty cool to see.

It's a shame that these forums are so quiet these days, so keep the videos coming!

Right and don't get me wrong, it's nice to see that kind of content out there and watch how huge the car culture has become. I really do enjoy watching the content (not all) to the humble and passionate youtubers out there putting in the work obtaining their dreams. I mean, to be honest, if I was in their shoes, it would be hard to hold back from getting all those parts and cars haha.

I appreciate you taking the time to watch! It's fun to keep the conversation going on another platform, because you are right. The forums are absolutely dead. I miss this aspect of the car culture. With my wrx, I would post up a review and it would be a frenzy with everyone jumping in on the conversation. Now, it's sad to see the limited traffic and people just moving away from forums in general. Now people move to social media to watch an entire car be built in 1 video. Damn millennials (lol... I'm one of them though).

I intend to keep putting out videos when I have something interesting to show or talk about. At least that I feel is interesting. I am not holding myself to a schedule or going to start vlogging my day because lets be honest, my life isn't that interesting haha. But I'll try to keep the channel going and hopefully the conversations can continue over there.

And no hard feelings felt. I didn't find you coming off as rude at all. I felt the need to explain my viewpoint as I knew an hour long sub-par edited/looking video of some balding dad in their garage washing their STI wasn't going to go viral. I just want others to understand my intentions for the videos and future plans of what kind of videos one can expect from me.

Yeah it's ridiculous. Granted I do a lot of work for Streetspeed717/Inshanedesigns, but their builds are pretty damn nice in my opinion. The builds I can't stand are "I put 100 ****ty ass parts from Wish.com on my BRZ" type ****.

I remember back when these clean, well thought out, build threads were really popular.

Absolutely man. Mike and Shane are up there with the quality builds. It just gets comical when I see these channels taking on 15 projects at once without finishing one. It would drive me BONKERS having all these unfinished projects collecting dust. I understand the need for content, but to me, it lessens the integrity of the personality behind the camera. It shows me that all they care about are the views instead of the passion that they started their channels on.

Like I said, I never intend to become a YouTuber by any means. But if whatever reason my channel catches on and start to gain some traction, you best believe I will stick to these words and continue to have the same mindset as I do now.
