    New member, new to Subaru and wrx. Owen an 05 wrx for 8 months now

    When I first got the car it was beat up. I right away got to work. Took me tree months of having it ripped apart in my garage before I could even drive it. That was hell lol I don't have a lot of mod's yet but here is the list of ones I can think of

    UTEC
    turboxs down pipe
    Apexi exhaust dp back (not cats)
    Air intake (not sure of the brand)
    dual core aluminum radiator
    BOV atmosphere(not sure the brand)
    Skid plate (home made out of 1/4 aluminum diamond plate) Light and now I can drive over what ever I want
    TEIN S-Tech Springs
    Gates racing timing belt kit (water pump and all idlers)
    MAC valve 3 Port Boost Controller Solenoid
    new timing belt covers
    front CV Axle Shafts (both)
    HID low beams
    Body kit that was on the car when I got it. (plan on changing it this summer)
    18" ASA
    Hankook tires 225/45/18

    I know there is more, but I'm having a hard time thinking of anything else. It has all been kind of a blur so far. I have been replacing and upgrading everything to make it a fun everyday driver. I want to make it as reliable as possible.

    I just installed the UTEC a month ago and am still in the process of tuning. If anyone knows a lot about these and could give me some pointers I would greatly appreciate it.

    Here is one pic. More in my profile

    UTEC, I have it hooked up and everything works fine, I just really need to take more time to work on it and get it tuned. The last two day's I have been trying to get this data logging software to work but I'm not having any luck. It is the free UTEC.logger that I found on Nasioc. I'm thinking of down loading one that you have to pay for and maybe that will work better. I also need to get a wideband yet.

    Any suggestions on data logging software?

    Other than the Mitsubishi-like non STi wing, it looks great!

    You talking about the one NITROS put out?

    Are you working with a custom tune or one of the base maps TXS put out? Where does the UTEC take over control? Is it a MAF or SD map?

    I kinda like it. I'm not usually a fan of mesh wheels like that, but they do look good on this car. Good job bring it back from the dead
