Default Jennay the Trollbaru (07-07-16)

A little about me, I have wanted an STI ever since I heard that boxer rumble at the age of 11. I joined the Navy to make it a career as well as save money for my dream car. With 2 years of penny pinching I was ready to search for one. Problem was an 8 month deployment closing in. I took leave in Washington prior of deployment with several STIís in mind. Come to find out all of them had major problems and I gave up the search after the last STI had an air bag fault.
There was a last glimmer of hope when I went down to Oregon for a family reunion with my father and he said to look. There was one that caught my eye, a salvaged crystal metallic grey 07 STI Limited. Salvage title was due to theft and flooding. It looked brand new inside and out with 42,000 miles and bone stock. I couldnít sleep that night I had to see it. We went to Silverline Automotive and were blown away by the warehouse jam packed with subies. I was at half chub the whole time no joke. Seeing the car in person blew me away it looked just as good as it sounded. My dad approved of the car and believed it to be in great shape. With that I bought and was on my way! It was the best feeling to drive out in a STI. Even though it was my first time driving a manual haha

Thought it stopped there? Wrong.
I drove Jennay around for 4 days before prepping her for an 8 month hiatus. BIG step up from a 95í GMC Sonoma I must say but nothing compared to what I had in store.
I chose Perrin performance for my build because it was a one stop shop and tax free and I chose Cosworth for my internals because its Cosworth.
6 months into deployment I bought everything at once and for a flat shipping rate of $70, it was at my dadís house the next day.
Who was going to tear apart and rebuild my car?? My dad has been a master mechanic for over 20 years and he has been looking forward to this build. $2400, a case of beer and 6 full days of work later he was done. Cobb wanted over $11,000 in labor and a months time to build.
After deployment I took leave immediately and drove it to Cobb to have it tuned. They inspected my dads work and they saw hoses hooked up incorrectly or not at all and saw the oil pressure sensor leaking (it was loose come to find out) and refused to tune even after correcting all the issues. I was a very unhappy person because I had no time for a reschedule and I needed to drive that car to San Diego. Luckily Pacific Import Auto was more than happy to tune my subie
Now this isnít a hate crime against Cobb, they are just picky on what they touch to protect their image of tuning. If I wasnít in the military and 1300 miles away Iíd have no problem scheduling another tune with them.
So all in all, I saved $8,000 in buying a salvaged title, $2000 in car sales tax (WA military are exempt), $2000 in sales tax for Perrinís products (based in Oregon where there is no sales tax), over $500 for a flat rate shipping and $11000 in labor by having my dad build the car. A total of over $22,000 in savingsÖ thatís pretty damn good for planning ahead and jumping on a great buy!

Subie heaven right here! My STI is straight ahead


One happy camper!


These pictures were taken just seconds after buying my STI


Grey body + tinted windows + flat black rims + gold Brembo's = sexy!

















Yes Limiteds come with black Brembo's but that's okay because gold looks just as good!

I always wondered what happened to my car before I bought it; with it being stripped and all. Some things are better left alone haha

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING IMAGES ARE GRAPHIC AND MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME USERS


Good to see there was no body damage as reported!


A well placed rock is used as the E-brake haha


I laughed when I saw this... I knew all the seats were taken, but not ALL of the interior


Nice enough to leave the peddles





As you can see, there's parts missing on the left side

all that money into parts and you go with prosport gauges? Come on now. Surely you can do much better than that. They are some of the cheapest made gauges out there. Constant problems.

Seems like a solid build tho, you have chosen some great parts.

Nice selection! I have the same turbo kit on my car! The perrin rails are just fine, many people have used them with great success. The only downfall is that they have barbed fittings rather than an fittings. More chances of there being a leak... But if they are installed properly you wont have any problems. I would go with an ACT 6 Puck for the power levels you are going to be making! Good luck!

Thanks! I have a basic Infinity sound system in my lil S10 and loved the way they sound so I can only imagine how this will sound. A little on the expensive side

Yeah they are 'budget' gauges and the reviews are hit and miss. If they don't end up working for me i'll switch up to AEM or DEFI.

Sweet! how much are you currently pushing with it? Been a great turbo so far? Lucky me my dad is a master mechanic and he will be aiding me in installing parts. If anything comes up Perrin said to call for help so i'm all around good to go. I was thinking of the ACT 6 puck, or ACT street kit with a streetlite flywheel. i'm pretty big on going with one manufacture when it comes to x/x and y/y.

Major update! The rebuild will start this coming Monday! Things have come up and because of that the project is being pushed. I wish I could be home to help my father put the car together, but as any mod fanatic would say, there always room for more mods!
Pictures will be flowing in very soon
