CarbonIS' STI finally has a magazine feature! Performance Auto & Sound Spring 2010!!

Ok, so I took the plunge and purchased my 2006 Obsedian Black Pearl Subaru
WRX STI on August 31, 2006. Factory Options included: Boost Gauge, STI
Short Throw Shifter, Rubber Floor Mats, Auto-Dimming/Compass Rear View
Mirror

Here's a pic of it in all it's stock glory the night i got it



And here's a pic a couple weeks later



The first real mod was supposed to be my fender braces (which still aren't installed),
but ended up being a Perrin Catless Downpipe and an HKS Carbon-Ti Exhaust.
I loved the power gain and the sound...but soon enough I got the urge to mod
some more, so I purchased a K&N Typhoon Intake and a Greddy Type-RS BOV.

Both were decent mods...I enjoy shooting flames...but it just didn't feel right.

I then decided to buy some rims for the spring, and in looking around, I found
a group buy deal that I just couldn't pass on and purchased my
18x8.5 +45 Rays 57F in Time Attack.





I waited to put them on the car until it was finally done snowing, and I knew that
before I put them on, I was going to have to drop the car. I was debating for
a while over going with springs or coilovers, and decided to not make the
same mistake I made with the IS300 and just go with the coilovers in the
first place. So, I placed an order with Ray at Turbo Teck Tuning (he gave me
an AWESOME deal) for a set of Tein Flex coilovers. When I stopped by to pay
Ray for the coilovers, he took me for a ride in his custom tuned STI. I was
amazed at how much more torque and high end power he was getting out
of the car, so I asked if he would tune my car. He agreed, and now the car
is Stage 2, running at 18psi and it feels so much better. Much smoother
acceleration and power. And, of course, it still shoots uber loud flames

Here are a couple recent pics with the car dropped on the new rims. I should
have some more pics shortly. Stay tuned for them and future mods







Ok So I did the Type RA-R grill mod...





I just really like this shot of the exhaust...
