    My "small" build thread

    2012 WRX, 31,xxx miles, stock.

    Ok, so about two months ago I posted a new thread in the engine mods section about "Reliable but powerful 2012 WRX mods" and i was planning on only getting a TBE and down pipe and a tune. Well I have mechanical knowledge so I quickly noticed the many other little things you can do to these cars to get more power out of them, while staying pretty reliable(if built/maintained correctly) So long story short, my CBE turned into this list. let me know what you think and i will try to stay updating this. the parts are being ordered soon and then i have to schedule my tune so it will take some time...

    ENGINE MODS:
    -Perrrin ELH
    -Invidia catted DP
    -Perrrin CBE
    -Process West TMIC
    -Grimmspeed ebcs
    -Killer B Oil pickup
    -Turbosmart recirc BOV
    -COBB SF Intake and Box
    -AEM 320lph fuel pump
    -ID's 1000cc injectors
    -innovate wideband o2 sensor
    OTHER MODS:
    -STI tranny mount
    -RallyArmor Mudflaps
    -Defi Red Racer Boost gauge
    -Kartboy Short Shifter and bushing kit
    -Perrin shift knob (black)

    I ordered the eibach swaybar kit and KB endlinks last night along with some lug nuts... all engine parts are being ordered through precision and also installed (sadly $). I cant install everything myself because my mom doesn't know im doing all this to my new car, and wouldn't be cool with it if she did haha (doubt I could install all of this while shes at work anyway). My dads cool with it though, So I am being forced to pay for installation which is no fun. Swaybars, endlinks and lugnuts im going to do though obviously

    How do you like the tranny mount? It is something I have on my list that I might do next since it isn't too expensive. I hope the surgery goes well.

My doctor doesn't get how i walked around, rode my quad, drove my car, etc.so long(5 years) wit a completely torn ACL and torn meniscus apparently. also had a torn meniscus in my right knee for about 2 years along with the ACL in the left...

    All my work is done pretty much, I only have coil overs and some new wheels left. Ill try to find some pics.. This is before I got the TMIC, BOV, pro tune, etc, etc,etc. I will get this thread up to speed though. the car made 300whp after pro tune, on a mustang dyno, so my tuner said its probably actually about 315-320whp Super smooth power band, my OEM injectors can easily be maxxed out so i only have it tuned for 18.9 psi for now. Perrin ELH, and custom Cobb full 3" dp with test pipe into a Perrin CBE (fully V banded except mufflers). More details and pics soon!

    Looks good! So are the PW TMIC and the BPV on the car already with a new tune? Or is that still to come soon?
