    2011 WRX - PBallen Journal

    Hey guys,

    Figured better late than never - I've had my Spark Silver hatch WRX since she had 6 miles on her. Bought in NH for ~$25.5k off the lot.

    Summary (will update):
    -Break-in procedure;' keep below 4k RPM for 1k miles. Oil change at 1k.
    -Currently at ~75k mileage : all standard OEM recommended maintenance. (oil change every 3.5k (liberally), 'major' recommended maintenance performed at dealer)

    I'll try to keep it relativity organized in the format below;

    Mileage | Description
    25k | Torqued Performance stock tune - Eric is fantastic!
    30k | Replaced throttle body hose - fixed 1.2psi boost leak. Again, Eric helped diagnosis this - fantastic guy.
    35k | Nameless downpipe w/ high flow cat. Torqued Performance Tune (stock airbox, aftermarket downpipe)
    36k | Refined tune from Eric - Fixed slight timing issue
    37K | SMY Cluser + Defi boost gauge
    48k | Defi oil pressure gauge
    58k | Front/rear brake pads (rotors @ 9.6mm)
    58k | Michelin Pilot Super Sports (stock rims)

    Cosmetics/Accessories:
    -Red stitch e-brake & shift boots
    -Smoked out rear lower red reflectors
    -Black A, B, & C pillars
    -Auto-dimming mirror
    -Hardwired V1
    -LED interior lights
    -LED reverse lights

    Need to add/sort:
    -Kartboy shift shift kit + bushings
    -Nameless 5" muffler single walled/staggered tips
    -22mm Whiteline rear sway
    -Primitive-Racing front skid plate

    Pictures and more sorting to come!

    Did you paint the A, B, C pillars? Or did you get the STi ones? I'm considering painting mine.

    sorry for the late reply. So far, I've painted the A and C pillars. Still thinking about that B pillar with the seat belt guide. Maybe get an STI seat belt?

    I used 'Duplicolor Fabric and Vinyl' paint. Here:http://www.amazon.com/Dupli-Color-HV...nd+vinyl+paint

    I'll post pictures tomorrow for ya.

    FYI: Autozone is the cheapest, but most the stores near me only carry 2 cans, so you have to stock up.
