Update #1 :)

Car doesn't have the OEM wing... so I asked around and someone was willing to trade for 0$

Car is clean under but it needs a Paint Refresh all around so I went All Out
Asked for a COMPLETE paint Job:
All trims removed (skirts, wing, window seals etc)
Black housing up front
And since I had a crack in the windshield and had to change it anyways I asked them to take the ceiling mat and paint it black. I will be painting the rest of the grey trims myself but I knew the ceiling wouldn't just come out from the doors so it was a good opportunity to do it.


While I'm waiting I bought a couple things:
Weathertech Mats
LEDs ALL around
Rallye Armor mudflaps
and change the 1Din Radio for a 2Din with Blutooth to freshn it up a little :)

The power output is great for now (practically doubled my horsepower from my FRS)
so I will be attacking the suspension after the paint is done

Impressive man. It is looking good. Love this body style STi.

I feel you on the wait part. My 12 STi limited sedan spun a rod bearing last September. It has been at the shop getting a built motor put in to it for a little over a month. Hoping to get it back soon!

Keep up the good work and updates!

Great project!

This is one of the actual "build" threads unlike the hundreds on IWSTI.com filled with almost nothing but LED light and badge swaps.

Update #6

That ?? ABS light is ticking me off ?

So I wanted to change the two abs sensor to the rear and the hand-brake wires
Turns out I needed to change the drum brake pads too ?
And uppon reinstalling one caliper, threads had to be retapped and helicoiled; Someone didn't put the right bolts in and had a lot more fun with the E-Brake than announced ?

Anyways
Looking forward to @Lachuteperformance 's SubieFest on August 24th at ICar Mtl!
Got some 1/4Mile times I wanna beat!

What kind of power. That number doesn't seem that far off because you still have to account for the driver error. Most published numbers from the factory are ideal conditions

The Power band is in the first pictures (dynograph)

Should be in the 12s easily since I have +/-100hp over stock and they; like you said, in ideal conditions, run 12.6 stock

Edit: Cobb doesn't account for wheelspin or wheelbounce

You are not 100whp over stock maybe 60 to 70 as they average 220 at the wheels from the factory. 14.xxx is probably realistic on an actual track.

If wheel spin was an issue Cobb would have listed your numbers much faster than 14

Should be downwards of 13 secs normally like 12.4-13.0 range
We shall see soon enough ?
Edit: Pull was done with:
no launch
no FFS
and on a secondary(notsticky) road
