Default My 2005 WRB STI / Project #05blobsti

Hey guys, haven't documented any of the stuff done to my 2005 sti so far so I'm just going to start posting a few pictures on here whenever I get time and add things here and there as I go.

Most of the car is already finished being built mechanically. I have a few more suspension bits I'll be installing soon and then the rest of what I have planned is cosmetic. So far with just the jdm lip and fogs I have put on but there is lots more to come in the looks department and when it's done it should look amazing!

Really I just want to have a place with some pictures so I can have them in case I lose them on my phone or whatever.

I actually just posted most of my engine/mechanical mods in the power bragging forum so I'll put a link to that page so you can check that out if you want. https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho...8#post45987868
I also have a lot of my pictures of the car documented so far on my Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/endara.dre
With everything STI related being under
#05blobsti

Anyways here is a picture as she sits right now



I will honestly probably sell the STI as is once I finish it so I can build my true passion project, the white legacygt wagon sitting behind the STI on jack stands. I have so many parts lying around for that car and I need to get going on it.

I used to have this silver one but I sold it and bought the white one from California to have a mint super clean body for my build





And here is the white one that is so spotless underneath you could eat off it

Delivery day





Anyways back to the STI

Work in progress




Cold engine compression test, all cylinders around 120psi



And finished



These are all the pictures I am apparently allowed to put into one post so I will continue this in my next post. Thanks for looking guys. Let me know what you think of it 😁👍

Sti engine bay is looking good finished. Did you strip the paint off the upper coolant res?

Tell us more about this wagon....

Thanks guys!

Once I get home tonight from work I'll post up some more stuff about the STI and the LGT wagon.

And yes to cleaning the upper reservoir. The previous owner had plasti dipped it and it looked awful so I cleaned it off. I plan to make a full build thread for the wagon on legacygt.com but that probably won't be for a little while. The wagon will have everything, 6 speed, built, rotated just too much to fully get into now but I def will later.

Time to post a couple updates. Finally got some time to install my brand new set of RCE Tarmac 2 coilovers. They sure do shine!

OLD vs NEW coilovers. A huge difference. These old ones came with the car and I have never heard of them before. I mean they worked but sure were uncomfortable and super clunky. Anyone but me never heard of Super Stable Brand coilovers?? Sounds kind of ridiculous 🤣

Tarmac 2 has a nice ring to it!



And here is a little preview of my summer wheel setup going on the car now. I'll take a full car shot on the next nice day that I find a good spot for pictures.

Hey guys, just snapped a quick pic of the sti's side profile with the new rims. Just need to dial in camber and ride height. Let me know what you guys think!

Thanks! Yeah over the brakes is tight, about as close as you can get but no issues there. The wheels are Linea Corse LeMans and they are 18x9.5 +30. A little more offset than I wanted but in order to fit them over brembos I'm pretty sure they have to be +30 considering how close they are.





They actually dont poke that much but to be honest I have heavy camber up front already. I think as far as camber goes up front I'm good. It just needs to be maybe another half inch lower up front. The rear needs another degree of negative camber and to be another 3/4" lower. I think that will give it it's best look. You cant really run these wheels and have the thing monster truckin!

I'm running 245/35/18 Hankook Ventus V12 tires on them, just in case anyone wants to know. Low profile tires make for a pretty harsh ride even with the RCE Tarmac 2s but its manageable. With the stock wheels and snow tires ride comfort is pretty good. Right now I'm running what RCE recommends for the street dampening setup on compression and rebound. Roads are at their worst possible right now after winter here in Mass and the city takes their sweet sweet time to repair so maybe I will try one or two clicks softer on the settings as long as i dont start to rub tire because of it.
