    Apache's 2006 STI Slow and Steady Build

    I posted about my recent purchase of my 2006, black STI in the New Member section, but I have done a little work on the car so I thought it was time to start a build thread. I will not be doing too much now because I am in school, but the plan is to make a list of things I want to do for every trip I make back home to NC. So progress in this thread will be slow. But so far I love the car! This is my first time paying for everything and setting insurance up and getting the work done on my own. Between all that, getting the mods on the car, and learning to drive with a clutch it has been a great learning experience. I bought the car with about 111,000 miles on it. I immediately changed the timing belt, water pump, and got the oil changed. The car came with, a catback exhaust, mudflaps, a set of winter wheels, and it came debadged. I also have the stock exhaust (if anyone in the NC, VA, or MD area are interested hit me up). In the last couple days I added a Pioneer 5100NEX, and a 12" Memphis audio sub and amp. I also hardwired an escort redline and mounted it on my visor. I was able to help out with the installation and I am so glad I did. It took awhile, but I learned so much about the car. I get almost no rattle, and the radar detector is very discreet. Ill add some pictures, but I need to take some more current pictures, those will come tomorrow. Thanks for reading!

    And, finally, here are the pictures of the completed setup. The radar detector is hard wired from the visor, and the amp is under the drivers seat. If you look where the ash tray is, you can see where the usb and aux input port is now.
