Hey team,

New to the forums and all the way from over yonder.... little ol' New Zealand,

Haven't owned a Subaru since back in 2013 when I owned a run down 1997 GT-B Legacy...

A year and a half ago I bought this fresh 2011 JDM Import from a local dealer, stock standard with not a thing on it,

First mods at the same time during week one were a brand new set of rims and brand new tyres as well a a GFB blow off valve,

Next up was TEIN Luxury Master HiTech lowering springs,

Very shortly after was a GFB G Force III electronic boost controller as well as a Turbosmart fuel cut defender...

Took a while for the next set of mods due to covid... but once we were out of lock-down I had the CAT gutted out and the resonator in the mid section removed and at the same time I relocated the air intake to inside the front bumper just infront of the front right wheel with a 9" K&N filter (sounds so good hearing the spool up and coming off boost listening to the turbo whistle as it spools off),

A set of brand new Yellow Speed 33 way dampener adjustable and fully adjustable shocks arrived yesterday and they are being installed on Tuesday, because over the Xmas period I stuffed the front right damper adjustable factory Bilstein when I hit a pothole on the open road ,

Anywho... Here are some pics of the beast... Enjoy...

Probably one of the most interesting muffler setups I have had... definitely does the trick! Damn those backfires between gears are wickedly loud! Will have to take a video with a passenger at some stage,
The reason for the odd placement of the exhaust is because I didn't want to hack up or modify my S package bumper

Thanks guys!! Much appreciated, some Hard Race RR Rear Lower Control Arms arrived today to sort out my rear camber issue and provide some further lowering at the rear to correct my caster in the front! These are being installed on Wednesday next week,

Also have a tune lined up for Friday at WRC Developments!!

The stock brakes haven't been holding up to my abuse, so out the door they go!



A full flush with Dot 4 should help with things too as well as the ceramic pads
