    Zach's I wanna be Hella....

    So whats up, finally got my ass around to making a build thread. The first time i drove my first Subie i was 16, it was my uncles 04 wrx wagon with a vf39 ELH, TBE ect. I was in love with the handling the most seeing as i had only driven FWD cars. My first car was a 99 Nissan Maxima with a 3.0L v6, i still love that thing but its no where near the car that the WRX is. So i bought my first WRX about 6 months ago after moving out to SoCal and having been lurking and trolling on here ever since.

    So this list is what i have now and thinking/planning for the future.

    Engine
    K&N typhoon intake
    CNT Downpipe
    HKS catback
    Grimmspeed EBCS
    Cobb AP using a "modified" ACN Stage2 OTS map
    Grimmspeed TMIC
    ETS (or something like that) Y-pipe and couplers
    STI Pink injectors modded to 830cc (from Mainframe)
    Walbro 255lph fuel pump (from Mainframe)
    Fuel pump install kit
    New injector Rings
    Blouch 16g-XT
    Agency Power Pitch Stop
    NGK Iridium One-step colder spark plugs
    Lots of gaskets
    Blouch 16g-XT
    MAW composite TGV Deletes
    Tomei ELH
    Tomei uppipe
    Tune by Bill Knose (Delcious Tuning) at Infamous Performance
    251WHP/ 226ft/lb TQ

    Suspension
    Suspension Technique Coilovers (made by KW)
    Group-N Rear Tophats
    Whiteline Com-C front camber/caster tophats
    Whiteline 24mm Adjustable front swaybar
    Whiteline 22mm Adjustable rear swaybar
    Kartboy Front/Rear endlinks

    Brakes/Wheels
    Rays Engineering Gramilight 57DR 17x9 34(or 38) offset
    Bridgestone Potenza RE-11A 245/40/17
    H6 Rear upgrade w/ Centric Premium rotors F/R
    Hawk HPS pads


    From Stock + the ugly fake 3 piece wheels

    To Hellafunctional with Rays and coilovers

    So got all my parts in this week. Had to fight with fedex and UPS to deliver to where i live. Such a hassle to get things shipped.
    I will be installing the gauges today and working on a tune possibly. Sway bars will wait until tomorrow or saturday. Will post the write ups when im done.

    Ok, got my gauges in. the install would have went faster if i was good at doing easy things. For some reason im that person that has difficulty with the easy installs and breezes through the difficult ones. Anyway, the SMY cluster gauge pods were a little too big for the 52mm gauges (i checked to make sure it wasnt for 60mm gauges). Simple fix of some electrical tape around the gauges until they fit in snug. Over all i really like this gauge system, it blocks my view from 125mph to 140mph but i dont really plan on going that fast . The boost gauge install was pretty simple, it came with everything you need for the install but you might want to go and buy small zipties for the vacuum lines and to keep wires from getting too messy. The only problem I had with this system was the T hose fitment. It was too small for the BPV vacuum line, so i went to autozone to buy a bigger T hose, simple solution. I ran the wires from the boost gauge and WB02 through the grommet right by the steering column and pedals. Was pretty easy to run the wires to where i needed them from that position. The Wideband was extremely simple to install also, although i didnt like the instructions they came with for the power wires. I misunderstood them and wired it up wrong the first time. Other than that the install went pretty smoothly, i went out and bought solderless wire connectors and a cheap wire cutter/stripper/crimper. I would suggest to everyone that installs gauges to use the crimpers and solderless wire connectors.

    If anyone wants more detail on where and how i did everything for this install feel free to leave a question.

    This is where i spliced and crimped the wires. I used the clock because it is easily accessible and right next to where my pod was.
