Default My 2008 OBP WRX Sedan from start to almost finished

It's been a while since I made my original threads. But since my latest mod, I felt like I needed an update

Let's start with day 1:

Bought it 1/31/08 for 21.5k OTD





****, I couldn't stand the ugliness that's a stock 08 sedan, so the first thing I put on them were a set of Rota G-Forces and a Pedo Bear sticker



Well, it was a bit slow and too high and the shifting was too sloppy for my tastes, so out went the stock suspension to these bad boys

Then swapped out the stock intake and down pipe for some nice AVO Pieces




Much, much better!


But of course, I am not happy with what I have so I had to upgrade again...

the good ol VF40

During my Clark Turner tune, the intake temps were too high for his liking, so I rigged myself a $5.00 IC cooler from Lowe's

The result from a scaled back tune due to temps of over 105 degrees

We all know the audio blows on the WRX, so that had to go..Pioneer AVH-3100DVD




And finally, 15000 miles later, I think I'm spent for least another year

Lookin' good man. You should get the front lip I have The Subaru lip. It would make your car look great. Have you thought about a VF52? That is going to be my route.

I had thought about it, but I think its a bit pricy for a new one, and ill just go with an aftermarket turbo if/when I go that route. How much is the sti lip? I've been thinking of getting it.

I thought so too, until I found them for brand new for $725. Well there are different lips. This is the subaru lip. Click here to see the lip on my car.

Looks good! I like how the silver sedans stand out. BUt i odn;t see myself spending that kind of loot on an OEM turbo when I can spend a few hundred more and get a better turbo, know what i mean?
