    The Blue Turd - Nik's 2004 WRX Build

    Firstly, if you'd like to keep up to date on my build...

    Follow me on YouTube
    https://www.youtube.com/user/SubieRumble
    AND
    Follow me on Instagram

    So let's begin.
    I bought my car in October of 2012. It had 119,000 miles on it & I am the 3rd owner. The car was 100% stock except for black powder coated wheels, cheap mud flaps, Hella horns & some cheap ebay HIDs for the foglights. Yah know... The usual lol



    I kept the car stock for quite a bit, almost a year. I bought Rally Armor mud flaps, cleared up the headlights & quickly & I mean QUICKLY became addicted to modifying my car. Yes, I know mud flaps & clearing up headlights don't necassarily qualify as 'modding' but that's all it took for me to realize that I love working on cars.

    *Past thoughts to self*
    "car needs to be lowered a bit, I mean look how the rear sags so low compared to the front... ewww."

    So I bought EMUSA coilovers.

    Yes. eBay, cheap, Chinese made... Nothing special, but they were ride height & camber adjustable & only $450 shipped. After 2 years of owning them, they served their purpose & are still going strong. I don't track my car so performance wasn't too much of a concern. Say what you will & of course you get what you pay for. In my opinion. I got more than what I payed for, they're still going strong!

    *Past thoughts to self*
    "damn those stock wheels are so small, narrow, & boring"

    So I bought XXR 527s. 17x8.25 with a +25 offset wrapped in 225/45r17 hankooks.

    Yes. Ebay, cheap, Chinese made & extremely common... Nothing special. However I like the looks & again, after 2 years of owning them, 0 issues. I got my money's worth.

    Here's a list of all handling related mods
    XXR Wheels 17"x8.25" +25 Offset
    Hankook 225/45r17 all-season tires
    EMUSA Ride Height & Camber Adjustable Coilovers
    eBay Front & Rear Upper Strut Tower Brace

    Next up I decided to work on the bland appearance of my car. At this point I had just another World Rally Blue (WRB) WRX like every other kid with WRX it seemed lol. I wanted to make up something that made it look better but not be too flashy. I wanted that subtle, good looking WRX. Nothing ricey & nothing boring.

    For the front end, I did the 'black nose' mod as I like to call it. It's similar to the newer GTR or Evo look

    I masked off the area that needed to be black (& fixed a small dent caused by the previous owner)





    Whether it's your cup of tea or not is irrelevant to me, it's something that most Subaru's (at least in my area) don't have, so my car definitely stock out of the bunch more after this.

    Next up was clearing up those disgusting, fugly headlights. It turns out the plastic lenses were shot & the headlight was leaking like crazy. So instead of fixing them myself, I just trashed 'em & upgraded to '05 STi headlights. Now if you don't know, '05 STi headlights use HID bulbs which conflicted with my wiring harness so good 'ol lightwerks hooked me up with a conversion cable
    (here's the link if you're planning on doing this)
    OEM STi HID Wiring Harness -- HID Projector Headlight Retrofit for Subaru, Honda, BMW, Scion and More | LightWerkz.net

    This simple upgrade made my car look SO much better. I blacked out the inner housing as well.


    I added STi side skirts & then added on to them, Duraflex C-Speed Side Skirts.

    (don't be jealous of my photoshop skills)


    I thought that the WRX wing was pretty ugly & since I thought the STi wing (as awesome as it is) wasn't right for me since my car wasn't an STi, I decided to go wingless. I also added the 06-07 STi vortex generator, roof vane, whatever-tf you want to call it.



    Here's how it looked after I was settled for a while with modding the exterior. This is before I started engine modifications (I'm talking more than just stage 2)




    Now for some real modding. I became bored with stage 2 & wanted something a bit more fun. I actually contemplated on selling the WRX for an STi a few times back when I was bored with the power. Instead, i decided to keep upgrading parts. It was time for Stage 3!

    The WRX TD04 turbo was simply not cutting it, so I upgraded to the VF39 out of an STi with only 50,000 miles on it.



    I then added TiAL's 38mm External Wastegate (EWG). THIS THING SCREAMS!!!!



    WATCH this video I made of my EWG going through tunnels, IT'S SO FRIGGIN LOUD!


    I then installed a TurboXS Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) while retaining the OEM BPV. I KNOW the popular opinon of this mod is 'unnecessary' but I found this FMIC used for $400 which is a steal & with the Cobb AP my intake temps lowered by A LOT. Turbo lag & throttle response seemed the same to me. This required modification (cutting) of the Front crash beam. I could have removed it all together like most do, but I'd prefer not to have my EJ205 in my lap if I ever get into a head on collision (God forbid).




    This also required a lot of cutting of the front bumper, I also removed the fog lights and mounts altogether.




    Here's how it looked after everything was all mounted up correctly



    I then upgraded my ebay turbo back with a Tsudo Turbo back. It's puuurty



    These were all the pretty mods of the Stage 3 build. I obviously needed supporting mods such as...
    Injector Dynamics 1000cc fuel injectors (DON'T get Deatschwerks, they gave me SOO many issues)

    Once everything was all installed & ready to go I then needed a tune! I decided on trying something different. I dove into the world of e-tuning. E-tuning is where a tuner from a far away land (lol) makes a map for your car, you drive your car, log your driving (with the Cobb Accessport), send your tuner the data logged & he sends a new map until the data logged is good (good AFRs, etc ,etc) This process repeats until your tuner is happy with the way your car is running.

    I chose Clark Turner Tuning
    Clark Turner - EFI Calibrator
    https://www.facebook.com/clarkturnertuning

    My honest review of his services is positive. The guy knows what he's doing & is very helpful. In my opinion though, he could work on his customer service skills. He comes off as very blunt & to the point (whether he meens to or not idk). But it's pretty simple, he's VERY good at what he does.

    After the tune I had my car dyno'd just to see what it was making & it made 289whp/274wtq @ 19psi. Good number for a 2004 WRX with a stock EJ205 & 5 speed with 137,000 miles. That was more than enough power for me & DID YOU WATCH THAT VIDEO?! The car screams & pulls enough to put a smile on my face

    No it's not the round # 300whp but you know what, this car makes me smile & it makes people's heads turn (passengers included) which is enough for me !!

    Here's the list of ALL my engine mods so far.
    IHI VF39 Turbo
    Thermal Solutions Turbo Blanket
    Blouch Oil Feed Line
    TiAL 38mm External Wastegate (EWG) w/ 14.5 psi (1 bar) spring
    Cobb Interal Wastegate (IWG) Bracket for EWG setup
    Cobb 3-port Electronic Boost Controller (EBCS)
    Cobb EBCS 1/4 Inch EWG Fitting & Hose Kit
    Cobb Short Air SF Intake
    TurboXS Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) w/ Stock BPV
    Injector Dynamics Fuel Injectors 1000cc (Top Feed)
    Injector Dynamics Fuel Injector PnP Adapters USCAR to Denso
    NGK Iridium Spark Plugs One Step Colder 2667
    Walbro 255 LPH Fuel Pump
    eBay Post MAF Rubber Hose
    Godspeed Silicone turbo Inlet Hose
    Grimmspeed Catless Up pipe w/ Flex Section, 38mm Wastegate Flange & Dump Tube
    eBay 3" Bellmouth Catless Down Pipe
    Tsudo 3" N1 Catback Exhaust
    Mishimoto Aluminum Coolant Reservoir
    Mishimoto Heat Tape for the IC pipes
    Cobb AP V3 on Custom Map by Clark Turner Tuning
    Dyno Results - 289whp / 274tq @ 19 psi on 93 Octane

    Here's my fugly EJ205's engine bay. I'll work on color matching & cleaning it up this Summer, but for now I'm just happy with the way it's running!

    Now that I'm finished with power. I'm working on stiffening this thing up. It's 11 years old & it's plastic & rubber bushings & mounts are really starting to show (feel) it.

    Here's the list of things I've added to stiffen **** up.
    Kartboy Short Shifter
    Front & Rear Shifter Bushings
    Kartboy Transmission Mount Bushings
    Group-N STI Transmission Mount
    TiC 5MT Linkage Update
    Torque Solutions Shifter Pivot Bushings
    Torque Solutions Pitch Stop Mount
    eBay Front & Rear Upper Strut Tower Brace (Mainly just got this for looks, I didn't notice a difference in feeling)

    Now for the interior. 2004-2007 STi interior are just blue & sexy af in my opinion. So that's what I'm going for.

    Here's a list of all the stuff I've done to my interior so far.
    Aluminum Dead Pedal
    COBB Shift Knob Red
    '06 Blue STi Carpet
    '04 Blue STi Door Panels (front and rear)
    '04 STi Center Console
    JPM Coachworks Shift Boot
    Sick Speed Shift Boot Retainer
    Sick Speed 4" Shift Knob Extension






    I would like to get STi seats, but mine are heated & I have long 4 - 5 months winter here in PA so I'm still debating on whether I want to depart from the heated booty warmers or not lol But you have to admit, for 11 years and almost 140k miles, that's a clean interior.

    I later did a few more things to my exterior since the Stage 3 upgrade.

    I got bored of the stealthy black FMIC of mine so I added some teeth to the grill.



    Say what you want, it's unique! It's my WRX nom nom nom

    I then deleted the Subaru emblem & added the WRX emblem offset like the STi's emblems for the grill. Just some custom stuff



    The last mod I've done since it was nice out was the rear diffuser. A guy locally use to make custom rear difussers. It required some cutting & modding since I have a fatass fart can & a 3" turbo back in the way lol But I think it looks nice. Again, my goal is subtle & nice looking (except for the teeth on the intercooler )




    Here's a list of all the exterior mods
    '04 STi Front Side Splitters
    '04 STi Fog Light Covers
    eBay STi Front Lip Replica
    Custom made '11 WRX Front Lip Side Splitters
    '05 STi HID Headlights (Blacked Out)
    '04 STi Hood Scoop
    Rally Armor Basic Mud Flaps
    eBay Black Aluminum Rear Tow Hook
    Black Nose Paint Job
    Wingless Trunk (Debadged)
    Emblem/Pillar delete for front grill
    Front grill WRX emblem
    '04 STi Side Skirts
    Duraflex C-Speed Side Skirts
    Custom Made WRX Front License Plate Delete
    Custom Made Rear Diffuser
    eBay Bumper Quick Release Fasteners

    So that's my car to date (3/4/2015) I'm currently waiting on Spring & nice temps so I can start the next chapter to this blue turd of mine.



    It involves Fender flares, A stupid wide & fat meaty fitment, new wheels & a lot of paint

    Here's a few teaser pics

    I like it, looks good. Just curious as to why you wrapped the cold side of your IC pipes in heat reflecting tape?

    I'm not sure if it makes a difference or not to the intake temperatures, but the idea was to prevent heat soak. The hot side of the turbo sits right under/next to the IC pipes. I did the pipe that's right before the throttle body (and directly above the turbo) and then I had left over tape so I just did the pipes closest to the turbo.

    Finally got around to messing around with the blue turd this weekend! So I have a 3" turbo back exhaust with both a resonator & a muffler. I love the low key rumble I have that isn't too loud or obnoxious. However, sometimes I wish my car was a little louder (besides being WOT with my EWG of course) So I went ahead & installed an Electric Exhaust Cut Out.

    It's pretty self explanitory, especially once you see the pictures, but long story short, it allows the exhaust gasses coming from your down pipe to literally dump before the resonator or muffler for that true "straight pipe" sound! It's only loud when you want it to be loud!

    So I put the cut out after the rear o2 sensor in the down pipe, but before the resonator in the catback's mid pipe. I basically removed the flanges & in their place, I installed the cut out.



    Another thing I did is used these things called band clamps I got from Summit Racing. This way, the cut out isn't as permanent as if I welded it & the mid pipe & down pipe can still be separate for maintenance purposes without the need for removing both. Ran for 10 miles so far, no leaks!

    Now there's plenty of videos out there for you ear's desire. I actually made one myself showing most of the process of the installation AND of course testing the cut out once it was installed!

    If you follow me on Instagram (DatSubieRumble) You'll know that I've been struggling with the fender flares & STUPID wide setup on my Blue Turd...

    So I've always loved the low, fat, meaty look of GD Subies with flares & wide tires. So this is my take at that exact setup. To be different, my choice of wheels were 'steelies'. Not too many subies (at least in my area) run these wheels. I'm well aware of the drawbacks with these wheels (heavy, flexible... HEAVY) but they're extremely cheap & extremely easy to find (plus like I said, kind of a unique look in my area).

    These wheels are Black Rock Series 997 Type 8 17x9 +12 offset wheels. I bought them used for $200. All 4, never mounted. Can't beat it. Now these wheels are a 5x114.3 lug pattern & since I have a the 04 WRX, I needed adapters. So I picked up 25mm (1 inch) thick adapter/spaces. Which now gives me a -13 offset.

    Now if this wasn't crazy enough, I decided to go with an EXTREMELY meaty tread for a GD body & that is Somitomo's 275/40... I've always hated low profile tires so these are just perfect for my taste!


    Wish I had a wagon instead of a Sedan lol
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    So once I got the treads mounted to the wheels, I instantly fell in love & regretted my choice instantly. These things are TOO WIDE. Now don't take me for a fool, I knew going in that these wheels & treads were too much for the GD, there's a reason why not too many (if any) run this setup. But I say F*** it!


    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    So just for ****s & giggles I mounted these wheels to my car without the flares (they weren't painted yet) just to see how much poke I was dealing with.


    Umm.... That's a lot of poke lol. No but seriously, it only about 2-1/2 inches so the flares will definitely cover it up!
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    Now about the flares, these aren't the infamous (or impossible to find) Karlton Fender Flares, nor are these ForceWerkz or ABWs... These are hand made by a guy in Florida (with that being said, he obviously used the same 'template')


    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    Now as you can see, there is literally no 'play room' or gap between the flares & the tire. This got me nervous REAL quick. I can't DD a setup like this let alone mount it. This was WAY to tight.


    My dogs facial expression says it all...
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    So I sucked it up, & started mounting, cutting, re mounting & repeat until I got the clearance I wanted.

    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    So here's how it looked after I got done trimming the flare to my liking. Note: it's not bolted to the car yet so it's just sitting on the tire. As you can see there's about 1/2 inch to 1 inch of poke. I'm fine with this.

    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    & Here's the 'almost done' finished project. I bought black automotive door trim to wrap around the flare, I think it looks ight... It definitely helps fill the gap between flare & body + keeps the flares from scratching the body (WHICH THEY DO). So one wheels down, 3 more to go -______-

    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    The project continues... As of April 6th, I have complete the front wheels & both rears. I still have the driver's side front & front bumper flares to add. I had to cut my fender and bumper to clear these meaty treads & there's only about 1 inch of clearance between fender & tread...

    THIS Project is NOT for the faint of heart. There is no such thing as a 'bolt on' fender flares for these cars if you intend on running a meaty setup like this. I reckon, when this is finished & all tied up. It will have a very agressive & 'mean' look to it. But until that I day, I can only dream. This is day 2 of trying to get this project wrapped up... Wish me luck...

    Despite the showers, I managed to get all 4 fender flares cut & mounted! I'll post a walk around video for a more detailed look soon, but for now, here's how it looks & sits!


    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    I had to cut my front fenders for tire clearance when turning... Talk about a 'no going back' situation. I'm still working on the ride height for a functional (daily derivable) & good looking ride.


    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    I still have yet to mount the front bumper. I am currently having tire clearance issues when turning & so far took about 1-1/2 inch to 2 inches off each side... I'll post back this weekend with my progress. Unfotunatelly, Spring weather is claiming most of my free time, wish I had a garage -__-

    Here's a reel of angels for your heart's content! Sure it looks cool (at least to me) but now it's time to make it more derivable (no rubbing)


    A little poke, no camber, yes please!
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/


    If you look closesly, I had to cut both my STi side skirts & my Duraflex C-Speed Side Skirts
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/


    You can see that the flares aren't a perfect fit, the black door trim helped fill the gap
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/


    My Uncle (big muscle car guy) said "Looks pretty mean for a rice cake" SO WIDE
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/


    Front bumpers are over rated (& yes I have the OEM brass looking tow hook )
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/


    Closer shot on the cut side skirts & flare fitment... Not bad, not perfect, though was my 04 WRX ever perfect? I'm happy with it so far. I just need to get those mud flaps back! This thing looks like a pavement queen now (well it is considering I'm this low & wide lol)
    https://instagram.com/datsubierumble/

    Well that's my project as it sits as of April 7th 2015... Hopefully by the weekend I'll have the ride height, fenders & front bumper all sorted out so there's next to no rubbing & I can daily this monstrosity again. I miss her... I miss my Blue Turd :'(

    I am done (for now) with this project. It no longer rubs & is derivable. I raised the suspension all the way around by 1 whole inch. This reduced the chance of rubbing by A LOT & allowed me to turn my wheel more than just half way lol. My car is now (some what) practical again.

    & It's still sitting mean

    So now that the car was derivable I tried tying up my issue with the front end. The tires were hitting the bumper so I had to "shave" (hack off) about 2" of bumper from each side. It ain't pretty... But nothing about this car is (nor was my intent ever to make this car 'pretty')

    With the front bumper on (with the use of man zipties & a few quick release bumper fasteners) I am officially (& temporarily) done with this wide project of mine.

    What I have accomplished here is one of the widest setups one can squeeze on a GD body Subaru. One of the ugliest, Frankenstein-ish, unique looking Subies in my area at least... I plan on continuing this build. But for now, a fresh coat of WRB & a clear head light lens is all this car will be seeing in the planned & near future.
