    Project Resist tempation to upgrade turbo

    2006 SGM WRX Sedan - Commuter car driven 40 km/day at most; so I'm trying not to drop too much money into, yet enjoy a spirited commute from time to time.

    The Mostly Go:
    • Invidia catted downpipe
    • AVO catback
    • Samco TB IC coupler recirc tube, with t-bolt clamps
    • Vibrant silicone elbow, but to fit STI TMIC to TD04
    • Samco Afta MAF hose with t-bolt clamps
    • Accessport V2, tuned by Airboy: 91 and 94 octane tunes, 17.5 psi
    • SPT style turbo heat shield + cut OEM shield
    • 2007 STI TMIC + splitter/bellows
    • Grimmspeed exhaust and downpipe gaskets
    • NGK Iridium 1 step colder plugs
    • Killer B Ultimate oil p/u tube
    • Michelin Pilot Sport AS Plus tires for summer/Blizzak WS70 for winter
    • Slotted/drilled rotors /w ceramic pads; stop well but unsure of brand; came with car
    • Whiteline 22mm, adjustable sways and endlinks front/rear: softest setting front/mid setting rear for now
    • WC Lathe Works GF4
    • Kartboy front/rear shifter bushings
    • Kartboy standard length exhaust hangers


    The less Go, more Show (yet still retaining function)
    • Grillcraft upper/lower grills
    • Rally Armor UR's
    • 20% tint rear 3 windows, 20% strip on top of windshield
    • Center armrest extension
    • Subaru all weather floor mats


    Future thoughts:
    • Repaint center console trim
    • Group N engine/trans mounts, outrigger bushings, trans cross member bushings

    Future thoughts:
    • Repaint center console trim
    • Group N engine/trans mounts, outrigger bushings, trans cross member bushings, pitch stop
    • TMIC + Dyno tune - Once I have the TMIC installed I'll be seeing Airboy for a retune, a little more boost, and a 94 octane tune

    Thanks, I have fun with it. It seems never ending however, I think come spring I'll replace any/all bushings; over and above the nones I listed. Hard to find motivation when my garage is a few degrees below freezing.

Did you make it all shiny for some reason?

    And lastly, you have 7.5in wide wheels, but you're only running 215 tires? That's sad! Come on man...I'm running 225s on my 6.5in wide stock wheels! With 7.5in, you're missing out on a lot of grip if you had even 225s! 235s! I think you could get away with 245s even!
    erm... this deserves an answer... my mods list has been edited several times since this was asked...

    No problem answering any of that, some valid questions.... do you think you could edit your quote of my whole mods list down to just the questions?
    I am due for paint. 10 years is the limit.

    If you are curious what madness has been afoot in the construction of my car, the "what mods pray tell" thread or "bugeye mafia" thread are cool areas to get me going about broken cheap parts...
