Default My old 2008 wrx wagon

I have been looking at getting another wagon(either a wrx or a forester), and happened to find my old 2008 silver wagon I sold over 9 years ago. It has gone through a few engines and several different builds since I sold it. I decided it would be fun to buy it back and flew out to Utah from Los Angeles.
Here is the list of where it will end up after its current build out. Im going to have a closed deck motor ready for when the current motor goes.

EJ257 motor
CP pistons
STI cams
STI forged crankshaft
Cosworth rods
ACL race bearings
ARP headstuds
Killer B oil pan, pickup line, and baffle
GTX 3076r rotated turbo with tial v mount turbine
Tial wastage
Tial BOV
koyo radiator
Cobb V3 access port
Cobb flex fuel kit
ID 1700cc injectors
Walbro 450 fuel pump
Cobb fuel pressure regulator
Cobb 4 bar MAP sensor
ETS front mount intercooler
Process West street intake manifold
IAG TGV deletes
IAG air/oil separator
3" custom full catback exhaust, up, and downpipe
custom air intake
custom intake piping
custom RRD oil cooler

PAR 5 speed straight cut gear set from andrewtech
cusco LSD front, center, and rear diffs
6 puck racing clutch with lightened flywheel

STI brakes
DBA 5000 rotors
Grimspeed master cylinder brace

Feal 441 coil overs with upgraded radial bearings
Vorschlag camber plates
Whiteline H brace, roll center kit, rear diff bushings, positive traction rear subframe bushings, rear camber bushings, rear end links, front sway bar, front strut brace.
Harmin Motive rear sway bar
Group N STI engine mounts
Group N STI trans mounts
Kartboy short shifter and bushings
Perrin positive steering response system

Defi red racer boost and oil pressure gauges
Prova D shaped steering wheel
STI rear wing
Braid Full Race FF wheels - 18x10.5 +22 with 295 hankook ventus R-S4 tires
ABW motorsport wide body 60mm flares front
APR front wind splitter

The goal is to hit around 550 whp on e85 and get the car setup for weekend street and light track use. I don't think there are a lot of 2008s built like this and hope it turns out to be a unique WRX!!

I will post pics when its all finished up!

Braid Wheels is a cool option for anyone looking for custom or hard to find wheel sizes in 5x100 bolt pattern. There doesn’t seem to be as many options for the wrx in that pattern.

Imo wagons can be awesome and from what I have seen, it will be. I love a wagon with fender flares and no roof racks.

I was going back and forth on getting the flares but thought it would be fun to go wide. I have seen a few cars with this fender kit from the U.K. and they seem to be holding up well. Finding wheels in the 5x100 bolt pattern was the hardest part.
