First couple months of owning it was basic stage 2 engine mods and suspension. Several wheel changes in that time frame.

Certain taste come and go. Cheap FMIC w/ stock turbo and an interesting color choice on Rays 57Extreme 🤣

Was running Koni yellows in narrow body 08 wrx strut housings, 08 housing were 1/2 lower than later years and added some camber.











Quickly grew out of the mustard color 🤣🤦

After running the usual stage 2 issue free it was time for a slight engine upgrade with a fresh STI block, crank and rods paired with CP pistons. Converted to an STI intake manifold and aftermarket STI top mount with Blouch 1.5xtr and E85. Made 430whp and 380wtrq to save the original 5 speed.

Much needed 6 speed swap came in from a low mile 2017 STI... 1400 miles!!! Along with the Brembo and knuckle assembly. Paired with an Iwire DCCD controller using oem DCCD switches. Deleted the Sdrive knob as itís not usable with the WRX ecu. Top mount pulled some heat soak so went to Cobb for an excellent performing and amazing fitting FMIC

After a wastegate spring increase and the 6 speed we pushed 460whp and 445wtrq out of it but were at the limits of the STI rods and Blouch 1.5xtr.

Time to get real!

Always a sucker for a rotated turbo! We have a rotated 07 STI limited and I just had to have one in the 14.

Set out with a goal of 600whp. After many conversations with my Tuner Corbin at Johnson Tuning it was decided to use the Garrett GTX3076R gen 2. Picked the supporting fuel mods and began to build the engine.

Right away went with an IAG stage 3 plus closed deck block. Paired it with fresh D25 casting heads with a pocket port performed by my ( was a little nervous 🤣 ). Sent heads to IAG to install GSC stock size stainless valves and beehive springs. Also had them clearance for Kelford 272 cams and lash set with new lifter buckets.

Assembled the engine at my home garage and dropped her in!











Money shot!!!

Some smaller details about the car. I canít use an STI cluster without a lot of work! So as I donít have Sdrive anyway I moved the STI bezel with Cherry Blossom accents over to the WRX gauge face.
