Nice closevo.

For me, installed the rubber seals on the Cobb air box in prep for install over the weekend.

Installed the SF intake on my STI and reflashed the ECU. Will take her out for a test drive tomorrow.

Took my STI out for a test drive with the new SF intake and reflash. Considerably more power than the standard Stage1, and Cobb adjusted the throttle to have a little slop at initial input making it more progressive. I like it.

Fueled her up with Stabil360. Hope this is the last time I have to add stabilizer before it warms up.
And hope it warms up some so that I can wash my filthy salted WRX..

Washed my WRX for the first time since late December.. what a mess. But nothing beats washing at home, I guess. Honestly I might start sticking this car through the autowash during winter considering how dirty she was. LOL

Going to install the fender emblems on my STI later today.

Finally got around to installing the factory black fender emblems on my STI. Looks great and this ends my 3rd year refresh for my car.

Subiespeed LED DRL's (fog lamp bezel type)
Cusco front STB
Cusco brake reservoir brace
Remark muffler deletes (single wall)
OEM side diffusers and rear spats
Cobb SF intake and ots tune reflash
OEM black fender emblem

I plan to keep the car for a while so next time around I'll probably do wheels and coil overs.

Going to be ordering OEM STI rear spats for my WRX soon and get rid of those Canadian made OE splash guards as temps rise.

Those and new OEM window visors.

Yesterday I installed the spec-d exhaust on my 2005. The northeast is not kind for this type of work. The bolts were so rusted all 4 of them snapped off instead of unscrewing. I had a prodrive axel back on there that was still ok but the flange was cracked and decided for something new. The spec-d is a bargain for what it is, impressive sound...maybe a bit too loud but I could could use the silencer if i wanted to. Amazingly very quiet when off the gas.

Unfortunately I have a minor exhaust leak at the last cat flange; the flange was so rusted that it's shedding layers. To make things even more difficult the spec -d piping is 3 inch. I will most likely have to take it to an exhaust shop to either fix this flange or just change the 3rd cat...not sure what I'm going to do. I can get a new cat pipe for about $140...I would guess a fix would would be much cheaper though.

sebak- Those are Prodrive GT1's? Nicely cleaned up. I have the graphite set on my WRX right now as my winter set. They are really nice wheels and very durable.

Craps, was hoping to pull out my STI this morning for a nice drive but light dusting of snow on the ground and I don't have the right tires on the car so will skip today.

Definitely going to get a new set of tires on my WRX this Fall so that I can give back the Prodrive GT1's with winter tires to my STI. Going to look at some Pilot A/S and run it all year long on the WRX and save the stock Dunlops to use on my STI's wheels down the road.

My A/C tensioner pulley and belt decided to self destruct 2 weeks ago. Finally got around to replacing both belts and the pulley. Surprisingly easy, took less than an hour.

i ordered some dry tint to try to do tail lights.

1st pass, burned a hole in it with heat gun.

2nd pass, tons of waves n bumps on the curves. flat part looks good, but once it turns and theres a curve near the edge, its wave city. going to need a lot more practice to get it right.

scroller - If you are doing the install in a cold garage, that alone will make your install challenging. I usually do film/vinyl installs in the summer time.


For me, ordered the rear STI spats and OEM window visors for my WRX. Going to get rid of those Canadian made Subaru rear splash guards (junk fitment on my 19). Also cleaned up the car over the weekend and pulled out my STI as well yesterday. Had a blast.

"Install" custom fit cup, door and center console rubber liners. Stumble on these while surfing on Amazon, took a chance and ordered them. These comes in different colors accents to match your car color if you wish.
