        VEHICLE STORY

        I purchased this in October 2014 bone stock at 38,000 miles with intents for it to be a daily driver until I saved enough to get an STI or an E60 M5. That shortly changed after losing a job and a not so better part of me as I see it now and there I sat. A bone stock Wrx and the want to make something that expressed the way I felt: angry. I started in November with countless hours of research into parts and ways to go about modifying it to suit what I wanted it to be (loud, semi quick and mean). I purchased the first set of parts in November which included an Invidia Catless Downpipe, Cobb V3 Accessport  SUB-003, Forcewerks front lip and GT Spec strut bar. Shortly there after I went wheel and tire shopping and picked up a set of XXR 521's wrapped in Sumitomo HTRZ summer performance tires (specs were 18x10 +25 225/40/18). Next up, Invidia Dual N1 Exhaust, DW 65c fuel pump, ID1000 injectors, Grimmspeed EBCS, Grimmspeed 44/45mm External Wastegate Up-pipe, Turbosmart 45mm External Wastegate. Shortly after a AVO top mount intercooler was added along with AEM 52mm digital boost & oil pressure gauges. At this point it was April and my part compiling had ceased. Next up I had the parts installed and I was ready for D-Day- getting her tuned. A 7 month cycle of hard work payed off an May 8th, 2015 when she put down 291/307 all wheel horsepower at 18 psi on a Mustang Dyno at TPG Tuning in Blairsville, Pennsylvania. The car pulls hard and handles the power very well, I love it absolute dream come true! Next up is a Unequal Length Header, TGV Deletes, Bigger Turbo, Uprgraded Internals, Front Mount Intercooler and Suspension upgrades!
