I bought my 2004 WRX and it had 76k miles on it and I paid 14k for it.
Here is some pictures of the first day I brought it home.




As you can see here the engine Is dirty and the car was not washed
So I decided it was time to do some washing , waxing, polishing, and degreasing.
Pictures of it clean.




Clean engine bay

I decided to go with blue lug nuts.



Also decided i needed some bass so here is my small sub set up that is bolted down.

I did not like how small the stock hood scoop was so i got 05 sti hood scoop.

white



PAinted to match (I did the painting myself it turned out pretty bad so i have to redo it).




Ok so i decided that stock was not enough. So i did Sti turbo, Sti intercooler, catless up pipe and downpipe and a walbro 255 fuel pump. Injectors are coming soon



turbo pic


Just got it reflashed to 8 psi till i can get injectors and a cobb access port.

NEW PHOTO SHOOT! Gave it a nice wash and took out to place called low river road. Some nice corners and a good place to take some pics.

Just got new 3 inch avo cat back exhaust. My quest for 300 WHP is getting closer.


My car has got some new things.
I traded my stock head lights for these cleared out headlights. I also randomly lost a foglight surround so upgraded to sti covers.


Did a trunk swap and got sti spoiler!



I also traded the HKS BOV for 60 bucks plus a stock 07 BPV. My car seems to run alot smoother now.

You should take the BOV off, and get an OpenECU clone of the cobb stage 2.5 reflash from someone with a laptop and tactrix cable...

no offense, but if you knew what you were doing, you wouldnt have done those mods without having a tune planned IMMEDIATELY after installation. Even not boosting it much isnt a fail safe. Get a tune ASAP. I'm not trying to be a dick, just dont wanna see your car get messed up.

If you knew what you were doing you wouldn't be using aftermarket lugs nuts with stock wheels. The taper is different...

The taper is not different actually, I have talked to several les schwab people about it. It only is like that on hondas and acuras.
