    D's 2011 SWP Sedan

    I'm finally getting around to starting this. Bought the car in Sep, 2011 and was able to keep it stock for just over a year.


    Didn't get to drive it too much though, because I was on the road quite a bit. To date, it's just at 5500 miles now. I've loved every second of this car, and plan to keep it for quite a few years. I started modding at the 5k mark, and am trying to put things on just a bit at a time to try and enjoy every mod.

    I'm just waiting for a break in the weather. Threw the exhaust/intake on a couple weeks ago, along with the tune, but it's been raining or cold ever since. I've been trying to avoid too much "spirited driving" since I can't monitor boost/afr levels real time. Also, I had to install the WBO2 sensor in the down pipe, but right now it's just tied off in the engine bay

    Haven't posted in a while. Car's coming along really well now, and have done a lot of installs lately. Can't wait for better weather to get the rest of my parts installed. And an updated picture of course:



    And my first attempt at washing the engine bay...can't believe I haven't done this sooner:

    MORE PICS!!! I have a SWP Sedan too and I swear my future mods involve at least 95% of what you have on your mod list!

    Whenever it stops raining or being super cold I'll get a couple more things done and snap some shots. Got the JDM fog light installed today and removed the SPT carbon fiber trim piece from the trunk (clear coat was chipping) Guess I have to buy another one because I don't like how it looks that silver color.

    Getting the new wheels mounted up next week, and should be sunny for some decent pics. In the meantime, I've been experimenting with Alcantara wrapping. It's definitely not easy, but worth it when it's done. Here are some preliminary shots of my handiwork (not perfect yet, still practicing).

    Steering wheel installed...can't believe how much of a difference the feel is compared to stock. Also wrapped the airbag cover, but mangled the Subaru emblem in the process...anyone know where to buy a new one?
