I decided that i'll show my beloved boxer engined money waster and that even in a such small country as mine, we actually do some modding on the subaru's Smile

As i got it last year around October, completely standard except the previous owner removed the backbox and install only a pipe instead...the car sounded brutal (too much for my taste):

Ok..let's get things done slowly...i ordered material for a full service and a few little bonuses:
-Fuchs titan race pro oil for the engine
-Motul gear ls300 for the gearbox
-all filters (air,oil,fuel...)
-a new turbo heatshield (the turbo was replaced and the previous owner didn't bother to put the heatshield back on)
-Oil pressure, oil temperature and boost gauge with pod with all adapters

After the full service (replaced all the liquids and filters i could find in the car Smile ) i went and renewd the underbody protection with Krown special protection Oil. The car is sprayed totally, and actual holes are drilles in those places (sills...) where he couldn't access.

I also got a set of mudflaps (which i shortened and removed the wrx logo):

You get to look at this dripping oil for half a year!

Then it was time i installed the gauges:

Adapters installed (the oil temp. adapter goes under the IC on the original place over the 3rd cylinder).

Fitted also the gauge pod with the gauges...the pod was quite a bad fit, but with some grinding i managed to fit it quite nicely:

The next step was to get one of these...

Ecutek Deltadash
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
...and another bunch of stuff

-Braided brake hoses HEL
-RBF MOTUL brake oil DOT 4
-Fast road brake pads(Aztec performance)
-Ngk iridium spark plugs
-short silicone hose
-255l/h fuel pump HRC (cheaper and actually better then walbro)
-cosworth panel air filter(dry filter)
-hayward&scott decat upipe

It was time to replace the ARB and droplinks

Quite a difference 17 vs 22mm

After around 15minutes it was on (dont watch the rusty exhaust...i'm sourcing a nice ss one...)

The next move was to replace the fuel pump:

New pump in craddle:

Old removed stuff is lowly pilling up:

I started to replace the IC pipe (bought a nice silicone one instead of that plastic crap), but it was late and dark ...so i went for a beer instead

I found that i have a broken AC compressor belt guide:

Which is made from cheap plastic...so i went and made my own much stronger hehe:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Finally i got my orderd from the USA....SWIFT SPORT SPRINGS wagon specific!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

They are made just for the newage wagon, not too stiff not too much lowering (softer the STI ones), meant to be used with the original struts

So this is all that has been done in the last half year...i finally sourced another prodrive backbox, so i hope next week i will have a nice scooby burble again.

This is what i have planned to be modded on the car... i think there is no need for further modding, i rather get a STI then...but i just got offered a VF28 and pink injectors...mighty tempting i say Laughing
