Steeda CAI

Here are some quick shots I took along the way.

I first did the wheels and took her out for a quick drive.
The first thing I noticed about the car, was how smooth/floaty the ride was compared to my 2012.



Ready for the Steeda springs!








Rear



Half way there



New stance!
I am in LOVE with the springs so far! They gave the car a great stance and no matter how hard I try, I cant get the wheels to rub.:clap2:
The Steeda springs gave the car a more connected feel and removed the numb floaty feeling of the factory springs.





Pre quartz coating.







Post coating





Here is a pic someone took of the car, I wish I could have the original rez.



I think today might be my last day with my 2012.:( ***3/6/15



Added Little Ruby Red Riding Hood to the stable. 3/7/15





That is all for now, I hope to keep updating as the mods come in.:thumbsup:

Currently at the shop for unexpected ringland failure. :frusty:

The car is coming back with a built motor, ported heads , valvetrain , cams , HTZ 3586 , id2000 fuel injectors FMIC etc etc. All I know, is that the sti car is keeping me from my turbo 5.0 dream.:doh:


The sti is a fun little car, she blew at about 320 awhp. Here is the car taking on a Mach1 in my trip to Paris Mexico.

Now that I've looked at the pictures for a good 30 minutes....

Did you put the Quartz coating on the entire car? Rough cost if I may ask? Can it be waxed and/or worked over with a DA polisher?

Love the wheels, probably one of the few combinations so far that i actually like!

That's going to be a nice Subaru when you're done with it. Just installed a Kraftwerks SC and full Namless exhaust on my friends BRZ this weekend. I've been eyeing a WRX as a winter car myself for next year but am waiting to see what the early '16 MY offers.

Again, good job!! :headbang:

Thanks everyone!

Yes I got the whole car quartz coated, I paid $250 for the coating. It was multiple coats and had a long curing time in between coats. I believe an hour or two.

the coating seems to work like a second clear coat.

Supercharged BRZ?! Sounds like the start to a fun story, the hp to weight ratio on that thing must be amazing.
If you do decide to go with a sti / wrx make sure you read up on the year. I wish I would of.:doh: Turns out 04-13 sti's have weak pistons / rods.
I was told subaru had fixed the issue for 2014.

That's actually not as bad as I had thought. For the results I am seeing in the pictures it is definitely something I will consider for my car. I took a look at the product details in the link you posted but unfortunately it doesn't say much about what you can and cannot do :shrug: It just says avoid automatic car washes :doh:

After we loaded in the tune and made sure everything was in good shape he took it out for a test drive. I don't scare easily in cars but in such a small car with that amount of power I almost shit my pants haha.
I'd probably be looking at the '15/16 MY for the WRX. Still not completely sold on the looks but from a practicality standpoint it's hard to be the value.

About those Steeda springs, the front looks to have a slightly larger wheel gap. Does the car itself sit level and that is just the difference in tire height?

Good ole' EJ motor, gotta love Subaru lol

Our lead engineer bought a 2015 STi back in September (or Oct.)

Great cars IMO, can't wait to see our EB run with his STi next year

Nick C.
That STi looks amazing!
No one will hate on my STi more than me...but I love that pos. I have had sooooo many people eat their words about the car. Maybe thats why its broken.:D


Looks so clean! Love the stance with the Steeda springs! :clap2:
The is getting tinted now 15%front 5% rear. I will have more pics of the stance this weekend.
Thanks for the gift Steeda! It was a pleasant surprise.:thumbsup:

Hmm I just read about the car wash, makes me wonder if the coat will last two years. I am sure they just dont want anything too abrasive rubbing on the coat.
I feel like the car sits lower up front, despite the wheel gap. I will try and snap some better pics of the car soon.

Are there any extra steps required when it comes time to reapply?

How are those 315's in the back doing? Any rubbing. I'm looking at doing those forgestars on my black gt but in gloss gunmetal. Was gonna do 305/30 in the back buy if 315's don't rub I might as well do that
