I haven’t posted up any pictures of my wagon yet and thought i would share my daily driver aka the beater

What I’ve done:
Stromung cat back exhaust
clear side markers
JDM corners
black RS lower dash and center consol
WRX front seats
2000 RS rims
Home Depot front lip, don’t worry its coming off now as I used this as my winter plow :)
custom roof basket with spot lights, with foot toggle switch.
Ram air intake (temporary)


-Mike

Roof basket:












these lights are freaking Ridiculously bright, shines like a cops spot light!

I think I might be selling the basket soon, dont really need it anymore though, but its very functional

any improvements over stock airbox?

I would think you would lose some intake velocity...but who knows...

It sound like a Honda above 4,500rpm. I imagine not much gain, but the air is coming directly from my hood scoop onto the filter. it feels like it pulls a little harder at top end...who knows..

Is your strut bar on backwards?

Car looks good.


MRT made two versions, facing the fire wall and backwards.

this strut bar made for a larger intercooler, its going back in my coupe when its finished.

That roof basket looks great! If I had a wagon I'd totally try and make one up after seeing that.

What exhaust hangers did you use to clear your trailer hitch?? I'm prolly going to be moving soon and using the car with a small trailer.. I have a Brullen dual tip and was thinking of the long ones kartboy sells.
