    I'm back. And now I have a modified STi to prove it ;)

    Hey folks, this is the site that I lurked on to gain most of my technical knowledge about Subarus. I've loved subies forever and learned about them long before I ever bought one, but never had the opportunity to own one until I picked up my gorgeous, unmolested PSM 04 STi.

    Since then, I've learned 3 things:

    1) Silver is the fastest color.

    2) Subies really do come with friends.

    3) If it broke, it's because you messed with it.


    Current (important) mod list:
    HKS Carbon Ti Exhaust
    HKS DP w/ DEI Wrap
    SS High-flow UP
    HKS SSQ
    K&N Typhoon CAI
    MRT TMI/C & Y-Pipe
    SAMCO TB Hose
    NGK LFR7AIX (one step colder) Plugs
    Protune
    TEIN S-Techs
    DEKA CF 15lb. Battery & Mount
    Royal Purple 5w-30 Oil
    Royal Purple "Purple Ice" coolant
    GRUPPE-S Front Spoiler Lip
    Throttle body coolant redirect
    813motoring 10K HIDS

    Finally installing in 2 weeks:
    Brand new built longblock (Cosworth internals)
    SEIBON CW-II CF Hood with stock scoop (Painted PSM)
    SEIBON CF Vented Fenders (10mm wider, painted PSM)
    TGV Deletes
    Cold Fuel rail mod
    Oil catch can
    N20 intake & I/C spray
    Water/Methanol injection
    TurboXS boost controller
    TurboXS UTEC
    Walboro 255lph FP
    Ported VF-39



    This is the closest picture to stock that I can find, me next to my buddy's monster R33 GT-R


    A couple more recent shots...





    Anywho, welcome back to me!

    I've got UR42 plans, so I'll stay active and keep you guys up to date

    Well, it really depends on the dyno. Also, we're talking FWHP, not WHP, so there's going to be around a 25% drivetrain loss.

    Beautiful. I'm really liking the lip and the drop those Teins gave you; might just have to opt for some myself...
