    Nepalese ' s 2015 WRX build log.

    Hi guys. My name is Utsab. This is my first build thread and I know it's too early but why wait. I am from Boston MA. This is my first WRX and I have always wanted one before. My last car was a 2008 Civic Si coupe in black with invidia header and Q300 combo with AEM SRI and Flashpro. It was a nice fun car but time to move on cause I wanted more power. So the story is, I went to get the Launch edition STI but was a bit over my budget. So I got the wrx base model.

    My plans are to get the full invidia header exhaust combo and a CAI with Cobb but we'll have to wait till invidia releases it.(typed "2015 wrx on ebay and only 75 items.. haha).

    Anyways, I am new to the world of turbo so I know very little about upgrading the entire exhaust system. Any input in to what I will need to change once I get ready for the header is greatly appreciated. But for now I wanted to see what I should get first- cat back exhaust or Cobb with CAI? I heard Cobb voids the warranty so I'm not sure if I want to get that. Maybe just the h/e/i combo?

    Current Mods:
    Morimoto H11 HID kit with relay harness.
    White LED Park light.
    White LED Reverse light.
    White LED License Plate light.
    Red LED Welcome lights.
    STI 2015 Launch Edition Shift knob.
    STI Leather with Red stitching Arm Rest (Ordered).

    Future Mods:
    Q300 Exhaust.
    Invidia header.
    CAI.
    Cobb.
    Retrofit Projectors.
    Fog Lights(Projectors).
    Trunk lip.

    I will keep this thread updated as I order the parts. I guess it's too early but what the hell.
    I'll post pictures as soon as possible. Thanks guys.

    Before you start adding performance parts you should consider what would need a tune and what doesn't. Since these cars are so new it might be awhile before anyone comes out with upgrade engine parts

    Thanks guys. Just called invidia and they said that they are testing the Q300 on a 2015 STI today and will have the results. I'll call them again tomorrow.

    Oh for anyone trying to install HID and Park Lights, it is very simple. You will have to remove on bolt holding the battery. You don't have to remove the battery. Just one bolt then remove the J hook and push the battery away from you so u have enough space to get to the bulbs. On the other side, remove the air duct then remove half of the intake filter black box and you are good to go. I tried what the manual said but it's kinda hard. Let me know if anyone needs pics.

    Interesting. I've already heard that Perrin and Q300 CBEs can actually mate up now to the new generation. Not sure how true that is or not but we'll see. I'm also wondering if the CBEs will differ between STI and WRX though considering turbo location and difference in engine placement within the front clip.
