I installed the 2015+ steering rack on my 2011 STI in my garage, then drove a few miles down the road and had Subaru do an alignment and there is a sensor which needs calibration as well. Saved some $$ on the labor to install the rack and put it towards the alignment and cal. I have noticed that on slow left turns I will on occasion get some weird feedback. From what I have read it has to do with the sensor that needed calibration. Have not taken to the shop for any diag as it really doesn't bother me much since it happens so rarely. If you were using the car for autocross then it would probably be something easier replicated and diagnosed by a tech.

Car looks great man! Wife's car is nice, too.

Careful with those APR tunes though...

My main question would be, what camber adjustability would there be up front on stock style suspension? Perhaps he can shed some light for you.
Oh nice, thanks for that! I'll reach out to him. I believe stock camber adjustments go as far as -2.5 in the front but the rear does not have any adjustment possible. That being said, there are a handful of options to allow further adjustment in the front like the Whiteline Com C CasterCamber Strut Mounts, but I'm undecided on the rear for now.

He’s a good dude and does good work. Builds a lot of subies.

I have my appointment scheduled for Oct. 7th to have the new rack installed along with an alignment. They even have the recalibration of the sensor on the estimate. Getting whiteline bushings and cusco steering rack brace done while they’re in there too.

Thanks man! After a few months on the APR tunes, we’ve decided we don’t love the TCU tune. The stock TCU tune shifts at 3500rpms under partial throttle. The APR TCU tune shifts at 3000rpms under partial throttle. Putting you in the low 2000rpms for the majority of driving in traffic. So we’re flashing it back to the stock TCU tune and doing Stage 1 low torque as a result. Should be a little healthier too for longevity.

I run the Cusco rear lower control arms for rear camber adjustment. Very happy with them.

Yessir! Great to see a semi local car look so good. Love your build.

I'm just below West Chester but work in the Coatesville area and cover up to King of Prussia.

I come from a VW background and APR has steadily been putting out some "hot" tunes. Part of the reason I sold my MK7. Stock clutch couldn't even hold a Stage 1.

Much appreciated. APR offers 2 different stage 1 ECU tunes for the S3: low and high torque. High torque requires their TCU tune or an aftermarket clutch. So we’ll see how the low torque feels on the stock TCU tune with a stock clutch.

My older brother lives in WC. I grew up in glen mills area down towards there.

I don’t always do the best with posting all of my IG pics to my build thread, so here’s a handful of pics of the CE28N’s I never posted on here:











Which ones do you guys prefer? The CE’s or ZE’s?

That's awesome man; small world.

My brother actually works in Glen Mills.

Car looks so good. Love the wheels and stance.
