    Teethandnail's 2013 WRX WRPB Shakedown!

    I told myself I was leaving this car BONE stock... after spending all my money on an Evo X and making the car somewhat not daily driver friendly. That lasted a whole week. Mod list below and pictures and DIY's to come when I get home.

    --Performance--
    Cobb Air Box
    Cobb Accessport
    Invidia Catted Down Pipe
    Invidia Q300 catback exhaust (ti tips)
    FIC 1100CC injectors
    Deatschwerks 65c Fuel Pump
    Racer X front mount intercooler (ceramic coated piping)
    Synapse diverter valve
    Grimmspeed 3 Port
    Grimmspeed turbo heat shield
    STi Short Throw (factory installed option)
    Tuned by Kozmic Motorsports (this weekend, dyno sheets to come)

    --Suspension--
    stock

    --Interior--
    Redline shift boot (black/red stitch)
    Redline E-brake boot (black/red stitch)
    Redline center console pad (black/red stitch)

    Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS

    --Exterior--
    Curt Class 1 trailer hitch
    35% tint all around
    rock chips :/

    FUTURE MODS:

    -Whiteline rear sway bar
    -GTworx shocks/springs
    -hawk HPS pads + motul brake fluid
    -possibly a big brake kit (wilwood or something of that nature)
    -Rota something (18x9.5 with a 255-265ish tire)
    -STi trans swap
    -Kozmic turbo tough short block
    -bigger turbo of some kind (Borg Warner or similar)

    Day I got it... good bye evo

    I can see you have a lot of will power haha. I would recommend stainless steel brakelines and some better brake fluid just to help stop all that added power.

    Yeah the more power I add the more the chassis, Tires, and brakes cry.

    Let's not forget better pads...those make the biggest impact.

    Tires make the biggest difference in stopping, but after that would be pads.. Stainless lines firm up the brake pedal.

    Thanks guys, next few mods are going to be brake, tire, and suspension related.

    some things I am looking at:

    -Whiteline rear sway bar
    -GTworx shocks/springs
    -hawk HPS pads + motul brake fluid
    -Rota something (18x9.5 with a 255-265ish tire)

    Not a track day car, mainly just enjoying spanking unsuspecting seemingly faster cars lol

    Car is looking good... I'd be curious to hear how you like the Racerx kit after the tune.

    I'm thinking about swapping out my Perrin top mount for one of those. Heat soak suckkkkks.

    I'm hoping for 300whp on a mustang dyno. I should have dyno charts within a week or so.

    By all means...jump on the bonus 5% deal soon. Be a perfect add-on to that power!

    Nice build so far! I told myself to go slow on mods for my 13 wrx but I find myself everyday looking for parts... -_-

    Did u bolt on the q300 and dp at the same time? If not was there a sound difference after installing the dp? Also, when u put it the Cobb intake/dp did u run a tune with the access port right after?
