I want to start this thread with a huge and I mean HUGE appreciation to PIA in Tacoma, WA and Andrew at Open Road Tuning. This project would not have been possible without their support. I am all about customer service and down to earth people that will help you out with anything. These guys have done that and more!

Hey everyone I am newer to the legacy world but have done tons of work on the Impreza platform. A little history on my last car, it was a 06 Subaru Wrx in WRB. It was my baby and I continuously worked on it.

Partial List of mods all installed by myself and a helping hand.
Rotated Gt3076r .60 hotside
Turboxs Fmic with Custom piping
Rotated Intake manifold
DW 1100cc Injectors
Boomba Fuel Rails
TGV Deletes done by Myself
Ver 7 STI Transmission and driveline
Brembo Brakes
Red Stuff Brakes Pads
EBC Slotted Rotors
HKS Carbon TI Exhaust
Tein Flex Coilovers with EDFC

I made 463WHP and 431WTQ on E85 on a Mustang Dyno
I then totaled the car, not from doing anything stupid either, but thats a story for another day.

So after I so wonderfully destroyed my pride and joy I searched around until I picked up this beauty.

Current Status:

More pictures on page 18!

She had 110k on her but has a perfectly straight body and perfect interior. So as soon as I picked it up I did the 100k service on it to be safe. After I sold my parts from the WRX I started picking up some pieces.

All of these parts could not have been installed if not for the help of all my buddies. Jarin, Travis and Nick. All of whom I love dearly.....haha.

So I started off installing my exhaust and a stage 2 tune. I made a little video of how it sounds. Its a little distorted because of the cell phone video but it still sounds good.

Then I did a mock up of the wheels and flares. I wanted to keep a really aggressive look with this ride and under no circumstances did I want any stretch on my wheel and tire setup. So I ended up with these.

This week I will be installing all of my goodies and taking some pictures as I go along. Thanks for reading and I hope some of you enjoy reading this project as much as I enjoy working on it. I will update this thread as much as possible.
