It didn't take long before I started ordering parts I'm satisfied with the power and how the car handles for now, I'll be switching my focus and adding some cosmetic parts to the exterior and engine bay.

Been a busy couple of months for car mods. I've added STI pink springs, AVO intercooler and after maf hose, Mishimoto TB hose, Cusco front strut bar, Cusco front sway bar with endlinks, Whiteline rear diff positive kit and a few other random bits.










^^Huge PITA to install thanks to the nuts being covered in undercoating AND the spare tire well severely limiting working space!

Looks good lowered. Now you need wider tires and wheels

I'm all for wider wheels and tires, but I love this just the way it is.

^Agreed! Definitely one of the best looking wheels on the BL/BP Legacys, aftermarket or otherwise.

Are your tires still 215's?

Also, have you noticed much difference with the bushing upgrades and other bits? In the process now of replacing everything on my Legacy.

Thanks, I definitely like how it sits with the new springs. I agree that I do need a little bit wider tire, before the summer is out I'll be pulling the trigger on some Potenza RE-71R's in 225/45/18.

Just like Shik, I like the look of the factory rims so as much as I want to swap rims I just can't bring myself to do so lol.

Right now I am on the factory 215's but not for much longer. I did notice a big difference with the bushings and mounts, they took a lot of slack out of the drive line. Just have to install the motor mounts and I'm done with the drive line/suspension upgrades.....for now

What upgrades are you planning?

Power wise, nothing really planned. I still have a catted up pipe with a uncatted oem sitting on my work bench waiting to go on. I'd like to do just a downpipe w/stock cat-back and call it a day. It's my daily and I don't plan on getting rid of it in the foreseeable future so just to let it breath a bit better is fine with me.

I do love the JDM bits for the BL Legacys though. JDM Spec B front bumper/grille, JDM rain visiors, JDM aero guards/spats are all in the works. I did grab a set of Spec B wheels, so at least I have those

Oh, and I'm a fan of the chrome trim rocker panel covers on your Legacy! You don't see them too often.

Just a little update. Over the last couple months I've been busy collecting and installing parts.

I plan on doing a lot more autocross and track days this season so I felt that the Killer B oil pickup and baffle would be a good safety mod, these will be installed once my Group N motor mounts are in.

As for the AVO RSB brackets, I noticed that the passenger side mount was starting to bend a little and the factory mounts looked fragile. These new mounts are very beefy!

I've heard mixed reviews on this piece Grimmspeed X-pipe. Does it add power or doesn't it? Well going by some of the logs I did, it seemed to help spool up but and it showed a few hp and tq gain on Virtual Dyno.

I finished up with the Whiteline rear diff bushing inserts, they were a nice cheap upgrade with no noticeable NVH.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of installing an AVO turbo inlet(great quality piece!). After reading reviews and install threads I was kind of dreading doing this and second guessed my mod choice. To be quite honest the install went pretty smooth, I had to trim quite a bit off the inlet to make it fit because this thing is HUGE compared to the oem piece (which slid right out btw). The only 2 issues I ran into is that AVO doesn't supply a 90* 1/2" fitting that is required to connect the PCV line to the turbo inlet line and that the 1/2" hose they do supply is almost too small as it was a supreme struggle to fit them on the nipples. Total install time was around 3 hours, at least 45mins of that was running to the hardware store twice trying to find some fittings to connect the PCV line. Apparently you need a special coupler to connect the AVO aftermaf to the new inlet, being that I don't have that piece I'm running the OEM piece till I can locate one.

I just ordered a new Grimmpseed EBCS and DW 65 fuel pump so once those are installed I'll be getting a new tune, can't wait for that!

Nothing huge to report aside from my newest shipment came in, the parts are starting to stack up and I'm getting impatient waiting to install them and get tuned!

I want to add a front lip but am looking for something direct fit. I've read that you can make a WRX lip fit but requires some work.What is everyone running and how is the fitment?

Finally got everything buttoned up. AVO aftermaf is back on after I had to order some 2.75" pipe to join it to the inlet. Next round of mods have been ordered

Nothing major to update since my last post but I've done a few mods. I also just ordered a set of 225/40/18 Bridgestone RE71R's that will be installed this friday.

Front lip has been installed:

Well I finally got around to installing the parts I've been accumulating the last few months. Installed a BNR EvoIII 16G, Grimmspeed CAI, Samco BPV hose, IAG braided oil line and Cobb 725CC injectors, all in all it the install went pretty well with only a few minor hiccups. I decided to go with Bren Tuning for the e-tune and was not disappointed.

Since finishing the final tune last week, I've had the chance to put some serious KM's on the car. It's got a little lag over the factory turbo but seems like a great turbo for daily driving, I've got an autoX next weekend and can't wait to try this out!

Not too much new to report. Been running this set up for over a month now, done 3 autocross events and it still bring a smile to my face every time this turbo spools! Here are a few pictures that were taken over the summer.

IAG AOS installed and my 1st attempt at carbon fiber wrapping. The AOS install was very straightforward and I had completed in just over 3 hours, install instructions were very thorough and made things easy.

As for the carbon fiber wrapping, it is definitely harder than they make it out to be in videos but it can be done. I got the kit from https://compositeenvisions.com/ and it included everything needed minus sandpaper, I highly recommend these guys!
