    Congrts, I'm assuming you bought used.

    I see coilovers, plenty of silicone. . and a painted TMIC. Can't tell if that's a STi tmic or not. ALSO, it appears that the Intake has a larger than usual housing at the MAF. Do you by chance have a list of mods that are done to this vehicle?

    I'm not sure if that MAF housing is larger than stock. You should find that out, and I personally never would run a Unichip. There are better alternatives out there, then again I know NOTHING about unichips.

    The strut tops are not subaru OEM strut tops, so I'm assuming that you've got coilovers, it looks like they're adjustable. Take some pictures looking at the strut tops and inside the wheelwell of the struts themselves.
