You have shtbxr's car. Congrats! Hope you know what you're doing with that thing...:)

scoobie_Bspec 12-14-2012 01:22 PM

Yes, i bought his car, now that is a great question. I love it the way it is as far of performance and upgrades. All i will add it will be some kicker speakers for the doors for when I'm driving long trips.

Im new to the hole Subaru, but i have always like the LGT concept and look of it, now im not so sure what id like to do with it since so far is a daly driver car, i am open for suggestion though.

BarManBean 12-14-2012 01:31 PM

Oh boy...

No offense, but the car you bought is probably gonna be a rough starting point for you. From the sounds of things you own a heavily modified car and don't really know your way around it. Guess you'll learn...ask your questions here :)

SCASEYS 12-14-2012 01:34 PM

Welcome to the boards
I need to see this in person. I also have the EDM console swap(it's a NH thing)
that car is beast!

scoobie_Bspec 12-14-2012 01:52 PM

Yes it is heavily modified but it wasn't as hard to drive as i thought. I must admit I had to get used to the clutch. I stalled it a lot in heavy traffic areas but i've got it down now and drive it well. The one thing I changed is I put a whole new ISC Suspension. The area i live in is a lot rougher than the car was used to. Also, I got 17 BBS rims from the STI. Those have been the only add-ons and will be that way for a while. This is the first vehicle with a turbo charged engine that I have owned. Also, my beautiful lady loves the car and that alone is very gratifying to me. This being a heavy modified vehicle and being turbo charged, is the maintenance the same? Like how much more time and money and things like that are involved with a turbo engine rather than a n/a vehicle?

Driving it isn't the issue. Maintenance and upkeep will be. Do a lot of reading here (then read it all over a few more times). Turbo engines can be plenty reliable, but monitoring what's going on with a highly modified one are going to be key. Get to know who tuned it, and what parameters you should monitor via the tuning tool used (Cobb AP or RomRaider/LV with Tactrix). Watch the oil levels, these cars use oil. Also choose a quality oil to use (I and many others swear by Shell Rotella T6 5W-40). I check oil weekly.

Enjoy! Car has tons of potential for many smiles down the road - just know what you have and how to keep it running well. :cool:

scoobie_Bspec 12-14-2012 05:01 PM

Wow thank you very much guys for all the good support and information. I must admit keeping up with the maintenance is going to be my biggest challenge you guys are very right since the last thing id like to happen would be to mess things up. My one concern would be is where to start here in the forum as for maintenance, so far i have been reading and trying to learn but i feel overwhelmed with a lot of info, and not only that since this car has a lot mods most of the things i read are for LGT that are only up to stage4 and i believe since it's fully built its hard to find the right thread.

Berzerklo 12-14-2012 05:30 PM

Holy crap! That thing is running meth injection?

scoobie_Bspec 12-14-2012 07:12 PM

oh yes, it is Officer Berzerklo, and thank you all for the welcome, im very appreciative and also guys Im very new to a forum base discussion so if you guys like i have a FB account that i i use mostly and i have some pics of the car there too. If interested you can find me by my email and that is aamp75@gmail.com. so far i love this forum, there is so much info, which is a little bit over welding.

ty all for the compliments and good advise, i hope i can become better and understand everything about my second lady...

Welcome to the site! Looks like you have a monster of a ride :)

BarManBean 12-14-2012 09:51 PM

Curious, how old are you?

scoobie_Bspec 12-14-2012 10:16 PM

Bumps to all, thank you very much guys, IDK if i consider it a monster ride been so smooth and sexy. Now yes its very quick but only in sport-#, in I-drive and sport is still quick, but not bad. I love every minute of the drive, now is there other guys from the NH area other than scaseys? I'm very intrigue in meeting some more LGT owners. I even got a wave by another LGT owner driving on route 3 near the Hookset area, hopefully he is in this Forum. Oh and BarmanBean Im 28 born in July 30, 84.
