Stu_Gotti | IAG Closed Deck (stg2.5) 2011 WRX WRB Sedan

2011 Subaru WRX Limited Sedan – World Rally Blue



Current State:

So my build really just took off in 2016, forcefully so when my stock engine shat the bed... however, with the help of IAG Performance and my car being paid off, we now have liftoff. My plan for this build is to have fun, enjoy the time I do have behind the wheel, and have enormous amounts of fun pushing high levels of boost through this closed deck block and driving it daily.

Latest baseline was done at IAG and was tuned by Junior. The car put down 427awhp/399awtq on 93 pump @ 21.93 psi. My current limiting factor is the MAP sensor. Omni 4-bar should fix that and is currently on order awaiting delivery. When it's time to retune the car it'll likely have the intake manifold upgraded as well. I think Process West will likely be the IM I go for... it looks superb.

I'm almost due for tires... I'll likely get the same tire setup as before and see how the new power levels feel on that setup before making wheel/tire changes or any further suspension work like coils or springs.

Been a while but scooped up some stuff for comfort/protection recently:

WeatherTech Front, Rear, and Cargo Floor Liners
Extended Arm Rest
Hella Optilux Extreme XY Yellow Bulbs for Fog Lights
Trunk Cargo Netting

Plan on picking up a set of used 4/2 pots from a local Subaru guy and building those out in preparation for more power.

Going to head out sometime over the week or next weekend for updated pictures to refresh the thread.

4/2 Pots installed yesterday in to today. Still need to get some new pictures... will perhaps try tomorrow if the weather permits. Here are a few quickies.

Hardest part for me was having to go back and re-swap calipers after having had them on the wrong sides/bleeder valves not being on top of caliper once on vehicle.

Nice car man. And if I may recommend a tuner to you, go with IAG. They are AWESOME. I used to go to Agile back when I had my 06 wrx. Hill is good tuner also, but ever since I have started going to IAG, I will never look back. Worth every penny.
