    cjzeppy's 04 WRX "Stacie" Slightly modded daily driver





    Purchased in 10/12 I got a offer for this WRX at my step dad's dealership. So far the plans are to slowly purchase parts to where she'll become an autoX machine, but for right now she's a great daily driver that gets ok gas mileage. The car was previously modified and it does have some parts leftover. Here's what is has so far.

    STi hood scoop
    35% window tint
    Tokico front struts
    Eibach front springs
    K&N Pod Filter
    Perrin intake hose

    Many 2004 WRXs received the same hood scoop as the 2004 WRX STi from the factory. Make sure that you're not spending money on the same part that is already installed on your car.

    You will need to replace both front and rear springs/struts to achieve a proper balance in handling. You will also need new strut-mounts and camber bolts for proper camber adjustment. The best modification (currently) for handling will be a set of decent summer performance tires.

    You should tune the car for these modifications. Furthermore, there isn't much benefit to either modification in terms of performance at your current level of modification. If you are looking for sound, consider the intake elbow delete... it's free and will give you the same sound as the aftermarket intake without the need for a tune.

    I did not purchase these items they were originally on the car when purchased. The Eibach springs have been removed by the dealership on my request, and I have a stock intake to remove the pod filter since they are worthless in power. I'm not looking for performance right now because I'm currently swapping engines in my project car, so things will stay the same for a while. A tune is in the plans with a local performance shop who partners with Cobb Tuning. I'll purchase an Accessport soon and save up for a Cobb tune.

    picked up an HKS catback from a friend. I originally had a SPT catback, but traded it to him for a bov. So we basically switched exhausts. lol

    Reinstalled my stock intake/snorkus, removed the hitch, and fixed my boost leak.
