I decided to start one of these build threads to document my Bugeye wagon build :D

Here is my engine bay as it sits right now:



Pretty basic OTS Cobb Stage II tune + Tweaks for the STi intercooler including a Cobb TBE. Chassis enhancements include strut tower bars, sway bars, stout mounts, and end links. Sway bars are 22mm front (stiff setting) and 22mm rear (middle setting) solid bars. This is roughly equivalent to a 24mm front/22mm rear non-adjustable set. Custom alignment with -1.05 deg rear camber, -1.1 deg front camber, and approx. 0 deg toe and 0 mm caster. 17x8 O.Z. Ultraleggeras wrapped in Hankook Ventus V12 Evos (225/45/17) hide my enormous Prodrive 13" 4-piston front BBK. Rear brakes are the H6 (11.4") variety with stock 1-piston rear calipers. Motul RBF600 braking fluid courses through the braided Stoptech SS brake lines. There are various miscellaneous upgrades including bushings (STi Group-N transmission mount, Perrin Shifter bushings, Agency Power Pitch stop, IXIZ concept clutch stop, Whiteline Steering rack bushings) and small upgrades like Perrin LCP and Cobb SF intake (soon to be replaced by heat-wrapped Fujita intake).

Ready for "Stage 4" upgrades!!!



Blouch TD05H-18G Turbo, Fujita F5 (heat wrapped) cold air intake, DeatschWerks 750cc Cobb-spec injectors, Walbro 255lph fuel pump, Grimmspeed 3-port EBCS.

For those interested, because Matthew brought this up...

The Intake has been wrapped in a insulating wrap and will be sprayed with an IR-reflective coating. This will protect the intake from heat transfer from convection/conduction (heat wrap) and also IR radiation (reflective spray).

Absolutely not :). I don't think I'll be installing/tuning until after June. Hoping for some availability from Phil at Element Tuning.
