Car: 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX 5-door Hatch
Color: Plasma Blue Pearl
Average MPG: ~26.5
Use: Daily Driver, Weekend Cruiser, AWD snowmobile
Goal: Turn it into the perfect daily driver. I'll elaborate below on that:
I drive anywhere from 200-450 miles a week, so having a car I really enjoy is a must. My idea of the perfect daily driver is something that is still tame around town, but there's plenty of power to unleash. Basically going for the "sleeper" look because i'd rather not grab a ton of attention, especially from my lovely local law enforcement. I'm over the whole "LOOK AT MY CAR" phase.
I have an idea of the mod path I'm going to follow, but would like to hear some other opinions. I don't have any plans of building a new block or dropping in a new 5 gear gearset or 6speed swap. However, I already started the oh **** i broke my car fund, in case the worst case scenario should arise. I don't have any intentions of upgrading the turbo (unless it craps out, then 20g or something slightly larger than stock but still has most of the "instaspool" of the stock turbo), although i may tune for e85 given we ever get any in CT. No tracking the car, no drag strips.
Current ideas (Power Goal: anything over 300whp/wtq i'd be happy with):
I'd like to keep the stock catback, unless there is an actual upside to getting rid of it.
Cobb AP v3
Cobb Catted DP (if stock CBE kept, Invidia Catted DP if not)
Process West TMIC (I've thought about going FMIC for the lower IAT's, but I don't like losing the crash beam)
KsTech 73mm intake (for if i decide to go e85)
ID 1000cc injectors (recommended by tuner)
Dw65c pump (recommended by tuner)
Turbosmart recirculating BOV
Grimmspeed 3 port EBCS <-- Hybrid
Grimmspeed MBC <-- Setup
Invidia Equal Length Header
Whichever up-pipe will mate to ^^ (with EWG in mind in the future possibly)
Tuner: EFI Logics
I'd like to "over" build it and not push it to it's breaking edge. Anything that'll bring down the IAT's (within reason i'd consider)
All advice and opinions welcome.
