This is my first "project" that i plan investing some bucks in to. First off. I bought this 2002 wrx at 109,000. It was an RS 2.5l impreza that was converted to WRX, the previous and only owner did EJ20 swap with the TD04 turbo, intercooler, strut and sway bars, differentials , ECU, Ect. It was mainly stock besides and stage 2 clutch, short shifter, and a invidia n1 catback exhaust. So i figured i have a pretty good base to build off of. Here we go.....

Next thing........I did not care for my stock shift knob. Its was heavily used and not much stickyness left to the leather. So i looked up these sickspeed rally striped shift knob.. Made with some temperate metal the keeps from getting really hot or really cold. also the actual material is white and black. it is not painted so wont scratch or fade. very easy install.Attachment 110232
Its time to go stage 2.................................................
1. Grimmspeed Manual Boost Controller ( this thing is pretty sweet when it comes to the cheaper route going with a MBC instead of EBCS. Kinda of regret not just divying up another 20 bucks for a used GrmmSpeed EBCS with way more features and far better performace. But for MBC, this is as good as it gets, has a +/- boost psi adjustment system. Each click counter or clockwise is 1/4 psi +/-. Performs pretty well. Can be set at 0-60 psi with just one spring. .
2. Invidia bellmouth catless downpipe - name says it all

When's the build?.. and who did the tune?
Ahh.. I'm guessing PDX?[/edit]
looks nice, i want your debadged trunk and hood scoop splitters :P
Build will be the EJ25 and most likely next year after i get her cleaned up a bit.
Buddy of mine does road tunes. He did a good job.Stage 2 tune. Set my boost at 16 psi for the time being while i have the "Tiny TD04". turbo. But still managed to put me up around 225 - 230 WHP. Definety night n day after throwing the downpipe on.

please let me know if anyone is parting out sti parts from and 02-07. Body or performance parts.
Edit: Nevermind, saw that all the swaybars and such got converted. Anyways, here's what I've got: OR: 2003 Bugeye Parts (OEM and Aftermarket) + Gauges!
I could probably use the heat shield. Mine came without one and ive heard about how it helps prevent heat soak. And yeah i have all the sways and stabilizer bars,
