Default Long awaited (I'm sure..lol) pics of the SpecB and STI

So it has been a while since I updated the org family on my rizide I haven't done too much.....I'm trying to keep it clean and simple. No real big power plans....the 52 will be perfect for what I want when I'm done. I don't have this turbo maxed out to it's full potential yet. From my DP back my exhaust is still 2.5 inches and I don't have bigger injectors. Once I get those I can't wait to see the numbers....considering I am already at 325wtq without those modifications I also plan on doing some suspension upgrades as well. Since I have no plans to really track this car (autox or road course) I am not going to go too crazy. I would really like to get some sways at the least. I am completely fine with the H&Rs so why spend more on coilovers. I probably will also invest in a Perrin positive steering response kit too....Perrin says that that matched with the upgraded sways will take care of a lot of the squat issues.

Mods I have so far:

Perrin Short Ram Intake
Perrin TMIC
Perrin VTA BOV
VF52
Cobb AP Tuned by Agile Auto (278whp/325wtq, 19psi)
Vibrant Performance custom exhaust
Converted dual mufflers to single straight pipe from the DP back
Invidia Catless Downpipe
H&R Springs
'08 STI FP
V-limited Front Lip
Debadged
Cleared and Blacked out '05 Headlights with 6,000k HIDS
Painted the grille black
20% Tint All Around
Red Calipers with Subaru Decals
Painted stock wheels Duplicolor Graphite

On to the pics!


Installing the '05 headlights and the HIDs









Rolling shots (notice how chrome the '06 headlights are compared to the '05s.....lol)







A few days after installing the new headlights and painting the grille black this happened

A week and a half later I had my car back in better condition than it was before the accident Except I had to bake the passenger light because they only replaced that one. I baked it, cleared it, the next day I brought it to the body shop for them to paint the inside.....then I had to pick it up and rebake it to put it back together. I thought we used enough stuff to seal it again but I guess not, so every once in a blue moon it will get condensation in it


First day I picked it up from the body shop











And the rest

haha...thanks, would you like to book him?


No he hasn't dragged it yet. We are bringing my car to the track Friday night...I am trying to get him to bring his car. His brakes are going bad so he keeps shooting me down When my stock turbo blew I just bought a 52 from Subaru ($850). The 2009 and above WRX comes with the vf52 turbo. Even though the '08 and above WRX shares the same engine layout as us, the new STI however still does not.

Two to three was such a nice age for Anna. So much more fun than when they were "slugs" - and not yet defiant.

He's so adorable!

1. It's pinstripes (a decal). I don't know if it came from the factory like that or the dealership put it on.....but it was on there when I got it. A lot of people remove it if they have it....I really like it and think is looks good too

2. The fogs have laminx yellow tint on the lenses. I really like the look of bright HIDs and yellow fogs at night so that is why I got it. I'm thinking about getting some yellow bulbs too though cause it isn't yellow enough for me at night.....

3. Them sweet crocs are from Target. I don't know if they have them in adult size or not.....I think they do have a bunch of colors though. Everyone thinks crocs are gay but I absolutely love them....they are so comfortable and very convenient when you are too lazy to bend over and tie shoes

Have you ever been down to the outlets in Williamsburg?? I just found out Sunday that they have a Crocs outlet store there. Many different kinds, many different colors

Ah I just found this
http://www.crocs.com/crocs-rx-relief...1=Light%20Blue

That page is for light blue but the color my son has is called sea blue.....they have them under the color selection at the top. WTF? Why are some colors $14 and the other ones are $39?

In the pic of your son between the cars is interesting to me. The Subie's look like protective guard dogs that are not too fond of strangers(other cars and such) near him.
