    • ENGINE:
      VF30 turbo
      STi injectors
      Vishnu underdrive crank pulley
      Perrin fuel rails
      255 lph fuel pump
      TurboXS turbo back
      Maxim Works header
      Wrapped downpipe
      TurboXS Version 1 TMIC & silicone hoses
      Silicone IC to TB hose
      TurboXS ABC
      Autometer EGT

      Prodrive P7 17x7
      Kumho 712 Ecsta 225/45x17
      Cusco F & R swaybars
      StopTech big front brakes
      Front stainless brake lines
      STi V7 RA struts (red ones) & springs
      STi upper strut mounts
      STi rear strut brace
      STi V7 front lip
      STi hood scoop
      STi short shifter

    I run 17.5 psi with 93 octane pump fuel. I use Mobil 1 synthetic lubes and have had no issues. I bought a BEL 985 Vector radar detector - these should come with the car. The clutch and drivetrain are holding up fine, but the tranny ratios absolutely stink. They might be a lot more useable with 4.44 diffs, but someday I need to get different ratios. Maybe STi trannies will become reasonably priced in the future. They cost more than BMW Getrags now.

    It's considerably faster and handles much better compared to as it was from the dealer.
