Damn, son. Can we has pics? lolA 2.5 wrx motor with sti turbo n invidea down pipe to apexi exhaust all 3inch has also invidea up pipe has the wrx sub frame stock headers.stage 2 excdy clutch and flywheel.06wrx harness complete with column and computer.
I don't know how to post pics of it. And It was a good deal I got it for $2,300 just had to get the wiring for the swapp done. It needs a paint job but I was gonna paint it anyways. It has stock wheels/suspension etc... I was thinking stop tech as wellDamn, son. Can we has pics? lol
Sounds like it's good to go powertrain-wise.
What suspension is on it now? Personally for street use, I recommend a spring/strut combo as opposed to coilovers. Coilovers are more complex, tend to rust more, and NEED to be corner balanced to work correctly.. plus they're much more expensive. You're looking at $1500+ for a set and they tend to have higher spring rates.. which aren't super daily driver friendly unless you love being jarred around or don't have many pothole where you like.
Given you are swapped, I'd go with springs and a higher end adjustable strut. AGX work well, but I wouldn't consider them high end. They do have adjustability. D-Specs are great, but I have no idea of they make them for GC.
Brakes wise, getting something like StopTech pads and Centric's premium rotors are good. If you're looking to spend more, a full 4-2 pot upgrade is usually next. More expensive, but they look better and will stop a bit better as the rotors themselves are bigger.
All depends. Honestly, I roll with the Stoptech/Centric combo with a heavier GD WRX and find they have a TON of stopping power for the street and autocross. Tires are your main stopping issue... what tires/wheels do you have? More grip with tires = better stopping, cornering, etc.
Yeah that's all that was done to it as far as I know that's the information the pervious owner gave meOnly swapped over the engine/running gear? Didn't do WRX brakes or anything?
If thats the case, cheap way to go is 02-05 WRX front rotors and calipers. Or go 4pot 06/07 WRX with that years rear calipers. That'll give you more braking. I suggest doing NAPA/Centric/etc rotors and Hawk pads of your flavor. I run HPS pads on my RS and STi, dust isn't HORRIBLE, but could be better.
Next id do Sway bars and end links. I think 22mm rear and 18mm front is a good set up(someone can correct me...), end links are rather, generic.
Then suspension. Could do KYB struts and lowering spring, or go coils. Can find a set of decent coils that may need one rebuilt for less than $100 for cheap on here if your patient.
Edit-cmiovino beat me...lol. I was typing...
If any WRX version of the brakes were swapped over, I think you're good to go with those calipers. Freshening up the rotors/pads can help. I'd keep it as it is. Look into a master cylinder brace for a more positive feel. It won't directly help you stop better, but will help with the brake feel... which is nice and feels more sporty. They're around $75 and can be installed in 20min with hand tools.Yeah that's all that was done to it as far as I know that's the information the pervious owner gave me
