Default 05 STI

Well since the interest of seeing Klab and me run again each other I guess ill make thread about what I got rid of the WS6 for.

I missed my WRX the second I watched my buddy drive away with it and even driving the WS6 I wanted it back. Car handled awesome and for what it was it surprised a lot of people. So once i put the WS6 up for sale i started searching. I ended up finding a 05 in Marshfield, 1 owner and female driven. Completely stock down to the paper filter with 83k on it. Kicker was when i bought it the husband gave me 8 extra tires with it. He took off the original tires which looked brand new and had them install on what John call gay gold BBS wheels.

Night i brought it home.


That week installed a JNA front lip, rally armor mud flaps and a HKS Hi-Power Catback. I had a Invidia 3" catless downpipe that i got off a buddy cheap but waited to get it inspected first even though there wouldnt be a problem if it was on.





Got it tuned by my buddy Eric Sorenson and at 18psi the stock clutch start slipping. Kinda expected it with the milage on it. Waited till tax season and got a Clutch Master FX300 installed and also had the timing belt and water pump done at the same time since it was getting close to the recommended milage to be changed.

I ended up wanting to change the catback cause i loved the Magnaflow I had on my WRX. Sold the HKS and bought the Magnaflow 3" non resinated along with extended hangers to keep it off the bumper along with some Perrin "stiffies" for the wing to keep it from moving around on the highway.




I did the brakes on it which was the first time doing it with a caliper with pins vs say the prongs you see on single piston calipers. Took over a week to do since the rear caliper needed to be heli coiled. Ended up throwing some Tien S tech springs on it to lower it a bit. People hate thses springs but I love them and done find them to be to low at all.

I ordered a Gimmick FMIC and Turboxs RFL BOV next and it wasnt as much of a PITA as everyone said it was. Cutting the bumper up was most PITA part of it all. Installed a Perrin short ram intake, Cobb turbo heat shield, some DEI gold heat tape on the IC piping that sets over the turbo to try and keep the intake temps down some.







And this is how it sits now

My friend just got an 05 WRX, looks like yours too. He has the STi wing and some "gay gold" rims.

IMO these cars are awesome

Nice project thread I didnt even know you had this car till you posted in my thread. I thought you still had the WRX. Nice well executed mods. How much was that FMIC?

I like the gold BBS's, car looks sweet.

Stupid cheap 385 shipped. Have a buddy who gets a discount on one of the sites. It's a turboxs knock off but somehow mine has a better core than 2 of my buddies with legit turboxs kits.
