    Chutoyy's 2013 PBP WRX

    Picked it up from Subaru Pacific in November 2012 with 6 miles on the clock.

    I highly recommend Subaru Pacific and Catia Amaya who did all of the leg work in securing my car the way I wanted it (untouched right off the truck) and giving me a decent price on the car. And AVOID Irvine Subaru at ALL COSTS.

    Anyway, enough yapping, I'll post the pics!

    Traded in the '10 Sh|tstang for the WRX



    Photoshoot with a friend that purchased his EVOX the same time as me.



    I can and probably will never keep a car stock so..... modding began the day I brought her home:

    LEDs on the interior and exterior (DDM LEDs cause they're local and last longer than a few online sites...)


    Valentine 1 hardwire


    Independant foglight mod


    Thanks to Xluben (on Nasioc) for the flip key walk through!


    Embarked on one of the more extensive mods on this car... TRS supplied Quad-Retrofit





    Cobb Shift-Bushings... one of the biggest pain in the asses to install because nothing lined up properly... Yay for Impact wrenches!


    Threw on Magnaflow Cat-Back

    GrimmSpeed Master Cylinder Brace + SS Brake Lines (World of difference!)


    Process West! Great intercooler, really really sh|tty silicone hoses and clamps (Kept popping off on me)


    PTP Stock Turbo Blanket


    Invidia Downpipe + Heat wrap (Yeah, I know, heat wrap is 'bad' but we live in CA so "what weather?!" and if I go rotated, ceramic coating goes to waste anyway.)


    Beware of Cobb OTS tune and catless down-pipes!


    DogBone!


    Group-N Motor/Trans Mounts (Guess which ones are the stock ones... with 1000 miles total)



    25% All-Around Window Tint


    Painted the messy chrome taillights



    And added LEDs to the rear reflectors... (Could've done a better job with light diffusion, but meh.)


    STi goodies in the WRX... Not sure what I'm going to do with the Si-Drive area yet.. May retro a DCCD kit in soon.


    Cobb Lowering Springs (Got em Free)


    Whiteline bushing inserts and Cross-Brace

    NGK Iridium One-Step Colder Plugs


    Maddad UEL Headers


    Coated Headers and custom Up



    Tight fit leads to custom dump




    Dyno day at Church Automotive Testing 285hp/327lb-ft on 91 (Low numbers were from heat soak; I didn't have an air guide installed to the TMIC)



    Convert to E85 and back to CAT 349hp/390lb-ft on E85 (Installed stock hood and intake temp dropped)



    Red is E85, other line is 91

    Hey man, I love the car! It's super unique!

    I made a clubWRX account just to comment here..

    You modded up pretty quick! I drive a black WRX and I am especially impressed by the quad-retrofit. Amazing. I'm in the bay area too, hope to see you on the road.

    Wow how did I not see this thread sooner? Impressive build and that color is off the charts, especially the shots in the parking lot at night. Sideways in the sand is a great shot too though!
