OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW


Introducing my new ride:

Current Mods:
Perrin Radiator Shroud (Red)
Perrin Boost Control Solenoid Shroud (Red)
Perrin Radiator Stay Kit (Black)
Perrin Strut Tower Brace (Red) - Now rare & discontinued

Kartboy HD Front Endlinks
Kartboy HD Rear Endlinks
Whiteline Alloy Lateral Locks
Killer B Oil Pickup
Killer B Oil Baffle
Catch Can system (Unsure what type of setup at this stage to run).
DBA 4000 Slotted Rotors


Pics: (more to come)











------------------------------------------------



Hey Guys, have been around Perth-Wrx for quite some time now & haven't had the opportunity yet to throw up my own driveway thread since my introduction.

I said in my Introduction thread I didn't want to dive too early into modding. However like anyone over years has said; the mod bug eventually hit & bit down hard & exceptionally fast.

A matter of fact, It still to this day is bitting down very hard.

My Beloved MY06 2007 IMPREZA WRX:

I Bought it Stock as a rock with a TBE & a Tune to complement, it came with a full service history also which led me to the buy.

Having done a few Motorkhana & Autokhana events along with a few Track Days at RAC (Good ol working for the RAC ) the Mod Bug Bit & My first mod was Coilovers. I made a conscious decision to upgrade the handling of the WRX to complement the AWD system.

I wanted to improve Breaking & Handling before I dove into the power aspects of the WRX. As quite a few do say quite regularly. "Improve Breaking & Handling first, No point having more power if the car can't stop or handle it."

Current List of Modifications:

Pioneer GPS/Audio System
STD Coilovers
Strut Bars (Front & Rear)
Whiteline Sway Bars (22mm Front & 24mm Rear)
Whiteline Roll Center Kit
Whiteline Anitlift Kit
Whiteline Lateral Link Locks
Whiteline Front Adjustable Ball Socket Spherical End Links
Whiteline Rear Heavy Duty End Links
X-Force High Flow CAT
MMS Custom Turbo Back Exhaust
Walbro Fuel Pump
Exedy Stage 1 Organic Clutch
Red Silcone Engine Piping
S204 Replica Rear Spoiler (Replaced with STI Spoiler)
S204 Replica Front Spoiler Lip (Currently off the car due to steep driveway @ Rental)
STI Fog Light Covers
Enkei 18" Tuned by STI Rims, Wrapped in Toyo Proxes 4 Tires
Custom Fiber Glass 3 Gauge Center Dash Pod
X 3 Genuine Defi Racer Gauges
HKS Water Temp Probe & Silicone Piping
Version 8 STI Cluster With Shift Light
STI Brembo Conversion
DBA 4000 Front + Rear
Goodridge Braided Brake Lines
CIC Thermal Coated X-Force Equal Length Headers & Up-pipe
Cusco Mounted STI Rear Diffuser
2006 STI Spec C Top Mount Intercoooler
Grimmspeed 3 Port Electronic Boost Solenoid
Killer B Motorsport Upper Turbo Coolant Reservoir
JDM STI interior Swap (Seats F & R, Doorcards & trim)
Red Perrin Radiator Shroud
Perrin Upper Radiator Brackets
Kap Industries Fire Extinguisher Bracket & Tagged Fire Extinguisher
IHI VF34 P18 Turbo ~ Made 290HP with 433nm Torque @ 1.1 Bar/15psi on Mao Hub Dyno



Future Mods if time Allows & if im still loving the ride:

In the Words of Jeremy Clarson:

Engine Work & Further Management


Now Time for some Pic's:
