Phase I- Lightening

2/21/09: Removed the beam under the rear seat as well as the considerable rear seat and third seatbelt bracketry/hardware along with all child seat anchors and the rear seat pass through. Lost about 27 lbs here. Also took out the spare tire, bolt/cap and jack/tools for an additional 36 lbs. The Cobb TBE and deletion of the heatshield has saved me 17 lbs already so I'm up to 80 lbs off the car.

2/26/09: Took off the U-shaped subframe this evening - heavy piece. Another 25lbs off so 105 lbs lighter now.

3/5/09: Finished up the ACPT Carbon Fiber driveshaft tonight so that's 10 lbs off there + 4 for the protection plate + 3 for the front undertray I didn't add in last time and +1 more for all the bolts that I hadn't included = an additional 18 lbs off the car or 123 lbs lighter so far.

3/8/09: So with the removal of the rear bumper beam, rear tow hook, leftmost muffler hanger, left tow plate and all attendant hardware plus the spare tire cover that I decided to to remove as well, that's another 37 lbs lighter or 160 lbs off the car.

3/8/09: I also removed the windshield washer jug (about 8 lbs with current level of fluid) and used a plastic T-fitting to join the IC sprayer line to the windshield washer hose right by the cowl/wiper section at the left of the engine bay. The IC sprayer button now sprays the IC and the windshield simultaneously. I added some of the windshield washer fluid, about 2 lbs, to the IC sprayer jug in the trunk, so 6 more lbs total off and that came from the very front of the car, so 166 lbs total.

3/17/09: Today I installed the JDM bumper beam but that was it. The beam and foam absorber were a combined 8.5 lbs which is 16 lbs lighter than stock! Also installed the Cobb lightweight crank pulley, 4 lbs lighter, and also the Gates belts and cleaned up the other pulleys. So with what I've finalized this evening, I've taken 186 lbs off the car.

3/19/09: Today I took out the driver's side fan and slightly relocated the coolant reservoir. Don't know if I'm nuts or not living in Alabama and removing a radiator fan, but I'll bet one will be enough. Its easy enough to get on/off. I'll see soon enough. The fan weighs 4.5 lbs so we'll just call it 190 lbs off the car.

3/23/09: I've taken 5 lbs of brackets out of the engine bay + 1.25 lbs for the intake resonator box + .75 lbs for the battery cover/mounting bracket/hardware -.5 lbs for the battery terminals and mounting + 22.5 lbs for the Braille 129 battery = another 29 lbs or 219 lbs off the car. I noted the car was riding higher on the stock suspension with the weight off.

3/26/09: I'd been overlooking the floor mats. I took out the rears at 2 lbs apiece or 223 lbs so far. Leaving the fronts in until I find a lighter alternative.

4/1/09: So the Kartboy endlinks come in today and I can put on the Cobb 25mm hollow front sway that's been sitting around for 3 years now. The KB endlinks are a wash and the Cobb front bar is 2 lbs lighter than the stock bar so now 225 lbs lighter.

4/3/09: So I put on the Cobb rear sway bar and Kartboy endlinks this evening. Total weight loss only = 1 lb due to hardware but that's 226 lbs off the car.

4/8/09: I continued work this evening on removing the sound deadener on the front firewall. Actually its from the footwells and as far up under the dash you can get - which isn't that far. This is a tough project and you're not going to get all 25 lbs without removing the dash and center console, nearly all of it. Anyway, I did as best I could including removing the ecu and bracket to pull up the deadener from underneath it on the passenger side and was able to get a total of 9 lbs of this dense *** stuff off (you can't believe how heavy it is) or a total now of 235 lbs off the car. There is more under the center console but it was getting late and I decided to save this for another day.

4/16/09: This evening I installed the AEM CAI. The whole assembly is approximately 1 lb lighter than stock so 236 lbs off the car.

5/9/09: RCE T0 coilovers installed - not too difficult as a one man job. Weight off the car = 261 lbs (even more as I have some stuff lying around that I haven't weighed yet).

5/17/09: Anyway, tonight I added up the stuff I'd taken off but hadn't weighed yet. I had 5.5 lbs of sound deadener off and still have a crapload more on the car . The hood liner was a half pound and a half a pound in upper radiator brackets I was able to remove after installing the ixiz hood struts. There's a knee basher plate I took off under the steering wheel behind the dash that weighed a pound and a half, and 2 and a quarter pounds of brackets out of the right side of the engine bay...all told a shade over 11 lbs more or 272 lbs removed from the car so far.

5/24/09: So with The Brake Man front rotors installed, -20 lbs, and the front brake dust shields removed (necessary per Brake Man instructions), -2 lbs, that's 294 lbs removed from the car.

6/5/09: Lightening today and taking apart middle console/dash for gauge install.

Left pic is the metal rod in the glovebox which weighs 14.1 oz and is a big PITA to remove as Fuji Heavy actually casts the plastic around the rod so you have to cut it out after disassembling the glove box. Right pic is piece of metal within the rear part of the console and under the main storage bin. It prys right out and weighs 13.4 oz (the bracket under the rear part of the console bolted to the driveshaft tunnel weighs 6.8 oz). That's a pile of sound deadener that weighs more than 3.5 lbs and to the top of that is a rear seat heater extension. All of this stuff came off the passenger side. Will work on the driver side later. Total off the car today is a bit over 7 lbs so total off the car 301 lbs.

6/30/09: Also an updated review of RCE's Tarmac Zero coilovers. Am I happy? Well, I'm a lot happier than I was with the stock suspension, but it isn't perfect. After driving on them awhile I find that my car is floaty feeling over larger bumps and road swells. Over sharper bumps, holes and dips the car is still a bit jittery but at least it doesn't skitter side to side anymore. I'm not sure if this is due solely to the coilover's unadjustable settings or my car's being 300 lbs lighter than stock (and within a month or two will be close to 400 lbs lighter), but for sure this isn't the perfect combination I was hoping for.

7/5/09: Girodisc rear rotors installed along with TechnaFit ss brakelines. See above for pic as it rained today and the rotors are rusty. So the Girodisc rotors save 7 lbs*2 + 3 lbs total for removal of rear dust shields and vibration dampers on each side = 17 more lbs or 318 lbs off the car. 39 lbs in brakes/associated parts.

7/8/09: ...got a PM from a member wanting to buy my JDM bumper beam so I had to take it off. I also mounted a development stage alternative front bumper beam that shaves a further 2 lbs (so 320 lbs off the car now). Another change tonight is that this developmental front bumper needs a revision for proper fitment, so I took it off. No front bumper would be an additional 6 lbs removed or 326 lbs off the car. You can really feel it too off the front end, which was also very noticeable with the Braille battery and initially changing to JDM beam from USDM.

7/21/09: Found another pound to take off. The TMIC splitter. Its lighter than it looks, close to 2 lbs, so 328 lbs off the car.

7/29/09: KS Tech air pump delete plate came in today. Once again we see where an item has been seriously overestimated in its weight. The running figure has been 10 lbs, the actual weight with brackets is a little over 6 lbs (I had previously taken off the brackets and they are already included in my running total). What is pictured weighs 4 lbs so that's 332 lbs off the car.

7/30/09: This evening I was able to get the Group N tranny mount and Kartboy tranny crossmember bushings installed. The stock rubber is like bubble gum so I'm expecting a quite noticeable difference in feel. Can't drive yet as I was unable to finish what I want underhood - do that tomorrow. Also took off the 1 lb piece of rubber attached to the rear of the crossmember giving me 333 lbs off the car.

8/1/09: This AM I did the free caster mod and put on the Whiteline ALK's. Between you and me it's a bit of a pain in the nads. Took me 3 hours but felt like 10. I had no trouble at all getting all the bolts loose but considerable difficulty lining up the bolt holes by myself - I needed 3 hands. Nonetheless I got it all on without stripping or breaking anything though I still have to torque everything down as I didn't have the 24mm box end wrench I thought I did. Of course will need an alignment as it changes the toe up front, you can watch it happening as you muscle the ALK's into place. Since the WL ALK's are aluminum they weigh right at 1 lb less than the OEM so 334 lbs off the car.

Phase II - The deep end

8/2/09: While I was under the car I was knocking on the plastic covers that run along the underside, inboard of the rocker panel skirts, and I found them to be full of rocks and dirt. Now that I've removed the front subframe, the leading edge of these panels scoops up road debris so I decided that off they must come. They were surprisingly weighty on the scale, though they are fairly large, nearly 6 lbs for both with hardware but without rocks and dirt. I took off the wipers and motor assembly. When I got the cowl cover off I was thinking I might not remove them as I could see the motor and arm assembly wasn't going to weigh 10 lbs. The motor is small and the arms are made of aluminum. But after studying it, it looked like it would come out easy so I decided to take it off and weigh everything. In fact, it was really very easy to remove so if I decide I need it back on it wouldn't take much time at all. The motor assembly weighs a shade over 4 lbs (told you it was light) but each wiper arm is heavier than expected at nearly 2 lbs apiece, so 8 lbs altogether - not bad. Absence of the wipers makes the front of the car look much cleaner, I like it. A potential downside on this (besides the obvious) is if I should get stopped I could be cited for improper equipment. No vehicle inspections in Alabama so that isn't a concern . I should add a disclaimer; this is not my daily driver and I don't have to drive the car if it's raining. I wouldn't recommend anyone else do this, it's my car and I'm nuts. 14 lbs off the car this AM so that's 348 lbs of weight reduction.

8/7/09: Prodrive GC-05f 17x8 +46 and Continental Sport Contact 3s in 245/40 installed. 8 lbs per corner lighter than the OEM BBS and Potenza 070s, so 32 lbs lighter or a total of 380 lbs off the car.

8/10/09: Also, Saturday I removed a couple more engine bay brackets, the boost control solenoid bracket and the power steering reservoir bracket. Now held in place with zip ties. Together they weighed a pound and an eighth so I'll round down to 1 lb or 381 lbs off the car.

8/22/09: Got 3 more lbs of sound deadener off. There's probably not more than 5 lbs under there that's left, all behind the HVAC system. It really would require a near total strip down of the interior front to get it all. Along with that, I removed the grab handles and their brackets (that's a lot of fun) and a couple of brackets behind the A-pillars. 4 more lbs there. Installed a Sony XPLOD CDX-GT130. Bought it from Crutchfield's for $79 + $12 for the Subaru harness adapter. Sounds really nice, especially compared to the stock crap. It is louder, crisper and cleaner - exactly what I was hoping for. It has orange lighting and weighs 3 lbs less. So altogether this AM I managed to get 10 lbs out or 391 lbs off the car.

8/25/09: I had purchased a JDM Spec C aluminum trunk lid and finally got it prepped, painted and installed. Alrighty then, 41 lbs for the steel trunk + wing + 1 lb each for the 2 trunk springs - 11 lbs for the Spec C aluminum trunk (the neodynium magnets weighed a shade under 1/8 lb combined so rounding down) = 32 lbs more or 423 lbs off the car!

9/13/09: Installed trailing arms with Group N front bushings by BigSkyWRX and SuperPro urethane rear trailing arm bushings. This is a must do mod. Like the ALK/free caster mod it makes such a huge difference in feel you wonder how you drove without it. From front to back the car pogos significantly less going thru the gears, which translates to more forward thrust and less wasted motion. That in itself would be worth it, but you also get a lot of help laterally when turning as the rear end is much more composed and you lose a lot of the slop that you can feel otherwise. Also, my new rear bumper is done. It is designed to add crush resistance in low speed impacts and as far as I can tell, its the only aftermarket bumper so designed. The bumper adds 6 lbs but I took off some small pieces underneath the car with the trailing arm install and removed the middle rear bumper cover support, which I find to be completely superfluous, and so took 2 lbs back. Added 4 lbs total so 418 lbs off the car.

Phase III - Fine tuning

10/17/09: Installed used TiC-SSTs with Whiteline Com C front strut top mounts and Grp N rears along with camber bolts in the rear.

11/4/09: Had a Continental irreparably damaged and decided to go back to 070s; weight penalty: added 6 lbs back per tire so that's 418 - 24 lbs = 394 lbs, and there was an extra 3 lbs added with the change in my coilover tops that I hadn't recorded yet, so back down to 391 lbs off the car.

11/17/09: Had an APR-GTC 200 wing sitting around that I had purchased used: I love this wing. Not only the aggressive look but its functionality. It really helps to stabilize the rear of the car. Anywhere above 60-70 mph there is a very noticeable improvement in the manner of the car. Wing adds 8 lbs, so 383 lbs off the car. The wing is good weight, really good .

11/18/09: Installed Kartboy comfort outrigger bushings this evening. Very easy, quick mod to do and so worth it. I'd describe it as a big increase in positive subtlety. Shifts are more positive and the rear of the car is more stable. Bumps actually upset the car less though you can hear them a little more. NVH is minimally increased only. The rear better follows whatever you ask the front to do.

1/1/10: So today I was finally able to get around to installing the Kartboy "Botox" rear subframe lockdown bolts and also the Group N rear diff mount. The lockdown bolts further help tighten the rear end up and make it a bit more communicative though its not as noticeable as the outrigger bushings.

1/18/10: Swapped the STi TMIC for a Spearco. Weight gained about 7 lbs total so down to 376 lbs off the car.

3/5/10: I've removed the AEM 65mm CAI as I felt it may be adding to some of the problems I've been having since I never was tuned for it.

3/7/10: Minor update but it affected the weight so I wanted to add it, swapped out the Cobb catted DP for the Invidia catless and saved 3 lbs or 379 lbs off the car. The TiC fender braces were a wash. I put the stock air box back on and gained a pound or so, but since its temporary I won't be adding it in.

4/3/10: Minor weight update: I have installed the Litespeed Rear Chassis Bridge so that added 3 lbs, or 376 lbs off the car. This is one badass suspension piece. I already have most of the suspension mods that can be done to the rear of the car so I wasn't sure what it was going to feel like, but it's fantastic. The rear no longer acts like it wants to roll over after turn in and it is much easier to induce power oversteer or to get the car to rotate. In fact, I'm thinking the chassis bridge might allow me to try a smaller rear sway bar to decrease wheel lift without inducing too much understeer.

4/13/10: I decided to try a smaller rear swaybar. Put the stocker back on last PM, 20mm. The Cobb is 25mm but hollow, and most seem to agree it is a functional 22-23mm bar. My doglegging/wheel lift is all but gone and it was pretty bad. The rear is functionally improved with the smaller bar as uneven pavement doesn't upset the rear plus it gives me back a smidge of understeer which is my preference.

5/8/10: Took out the IC spray tank to get rid of 3 lbs (with the current water level in there) so 379 lbs off the car. I never use it anyway.

5/13/10: Weight update; able to drop 13 lbs so back down to 392 lbs off the car. Accomplished by taking off the stock exhaust manifold (25 lbs including heat shields) and putting on the Perrin EL header (12 thin-walled lbs).

5/18/10: Received and installed the CF roof vane. It is 2 1/4 lbs lighter than the steel vane, so round down to get 394 lbs off the car.

6/7/10: Whiteline KSB700 H-brace, designed for the GC chassis added. Piece weighs 3.75 lbs and the subframe mounting tabs that I had to remove at the forward A-arm positions weighed a short hair under 3/4 lbs so back to 391 lbs off the car .

6/14/10: Replaced the shot 070s with 235/45/17 Star Specs. Same weight.

6/17/10: I've got too much body roll for my liking because the oh-so-tight chassis is transferring more weight to the springs since so little is now lost in the chassis. My soft sways aren't helping so I did a DIY mod to the OEM 20mm rear sway and drilled a hole (wasn't easy) 1" further back on each mounting tab to shorten the moment arm and therefore stiffen the bar. The difference is noticeable but not drastic, I'd call it effectively a 21mm bar now.

6/18/10: Did the Whiteline steering rack bushings tonight. Mild to moderate on the PITA install scale particularly given the relatively low yield of benefit. I could tell it when the stock bushings came out and they didn't feel that soft, especially the driver's side. There is some improvement in steering feel though even better is the small amount of overall gain in front end tightness.

6/22/10: The FHI JDM Spec C Titanium front strut bar (some combination of those adjectives is correct ) arrived today. Honestly I wasn't expecting much from this with everything else I've done but I was pleasantly surprised. There is definite stabilization of the front end with sharper cornering noted. Nothing magic but undeniably a sizable benefit. The bar weighs a touch over 3 lbs so that brings me back to 388 lbs off the car.

7/27/10: Finally got the Group N engine mounts and the Killer B oil pickup installed (stock pickup not cracked) and the freaking oil pan reinstalled.

8/12/10: The TiC-SSTs went soft so instead of a rebuild, I bought new AST4100s.

8/26/10: My stock uppipe cracked. Got the GReddy uppipe on tonight but didn't have time to do the upper coolant reservoir. The GReddy is 3 lbs lighter than the stock one so that's 391 lbs off the car.

8/30/10: Installed Vorshlag camber plates front and rear. Gained 1 lb, or 390 lbs off.

9/20/10: Whiteline 24mm adjustable from Cygnus Performance and installed it on the stiff setting this PM in place of the hollow Cobb. That did the trick. Improved initial turn-in with as little roll as the stiffer springs and overall "tighter" feeling to the front end. It makes the steering feel more precise. The price of the porky solid bar is + 5 lbs (rounded up) , so 385 lbs off the car.

9/27/10: Installed STi "Pink" Trailing arms with pillowball front bushing and changed rear trailing arm bushing to Grp N. Also installed Grp N bushings into my lateral links and put them on the car.

10/3/10: Grp N pitch stop (whatever).

10/15/10: Installed Burns Stainless ultralightweight, low backpressure exhaust directly onto the downpipe. Deletes the Cobb axleback, weight = 19 lbs, the midpipe 9 lbs and the muffler hangers, downpipe flange, gaskets, muffler heat shield and all bolts were a collective 3 lbs. The Burns muffler is 3.5 lbs, the clamps are 0.75 lbs each and the turndown was a disappointing 2 lbs (I might replace it with an aluminum piece if I can find one), or 7 lbs for the whole assembly. So that's a weight savings of 24 lbs or 409 lbs off the car. The "muffler" clamped to the downpipe is effing loud.

10/30/10: car driven to EFI Logics in Bethel, CT 1500 miles from my home. Build underway:

No, and actually I may be mistaken that they can do that with a Garrett BB turbo. Been meaning to ask them just haven't gotten around to it. Ugly arse thing isn't it .

Looking good! I've followed your build on IWSTI for a while. For an 07 your car really looks more like Aspen White

Do you think for your purposes the 17x8s with 235s are more than enough wheel/tire or do you think you'd benefit from going wider?

Thanks. It looks aspen white because my camera skills suck .

I'd like to go wider but I'm not sure if I want to get rid of the Prodrive wheels or not.

Car pulled out right in front of me on a hill with a blind curve (bad situation) and I lifted and braked and the car snapped around and did a bunch of lateral/end over end flips through the ditch on the side of the road. All I had wrong was a couple minor scratches on my face and a sore shoulder from the seat belt. Subaru FTW.

As noted above, I'll be using the Litespeed UEL header for my build. Here's what it did on a Stage 2+ setup, 20whp and 40wtq. http://www.iwsti.com/forums/3202869-post1.html

The close up picture of what I assume is your passenger side rear tire showing the STi Trailing Arm...is that tire on backwards?

Nice build!!

Thanks. That was a helluva crash - 4 years ago now.

UGM or WRB? I bet I remember your car. I live over in AL and use the Fit for commuting - 98K miles. Sold the SSR wheels to help finance the STi build. I'd love to check out the auto-x.

Good eye. Yep I mixed up sides inadvertently. I caught it before driving but not the pic.

Great looking engine and great looking header. I am always amazed at GD chassis crash stories. That looks like it could have ended badly if you were driving something else.

Thanks. I can't wait to see what the header does with the GT3076. Subaru's safety cage is definitely the good stuff.

EFI posted this today:




They are fabbing the uppipe/downpipe now. Another step closer.
