First thing I ordered when I hit 7000km was Nameless performance muffler deletes and a K&N short ram. The intake in my opinion is not great. It sucks in too much air. The mufflers are pretty good. Nice sound but lots of drone. Not my pics but they are pretty much the same \/

I was running those few things for a little while and then I decided I wanted more power. So I was talking to my tuner and he recommended that I get a Catless Invidia Downpipe. Once I got that I took off this piece of garbage \/

And put on this beauty \/

I got that tuned up and got 267whp and 290wtq on 91 Octane

The following day I picked my little brother up and we went out for something to eat. While I was parked I noticed my car let out a weird shake.. So I quickly turned the car off. Fearing it was the common issue with sti (blown ring land) I called my tuner. He told
Me to do a couple tests and see what the Cobb AP was saying. It was reading a misfire on cylinder 4. He told me to bring it in the next day. When I brought it in he begun to do a compression test. She was reading 52psi on cylinder 4 when I do believe it supposed to be around 120psi. He told me my ring land was gone. Seeing at this point it was almost time for snow I put the car away for winter. (We still use salt in Newfoundland so I will not drive my sti in that garbage)

Going back in the engine bay!\/

And she's back in

My tuner took the engine out on a Thursday, taking his time (2 hrs) and Friday he started at 3pm and at 3am the next day or morning however you want to look at it I was on my way home. It was a pretty nervous drive home.
