    Hey guys, thought I'd share my build with the group and post up some pics I've collected over the past 2.5 years of owning my WRX. It's been a long journey, and I'm still constantly changing things up. I picked up the car out in Pasadena, Ca after looking for months for a "Limited" in silver or white. When the wide bodies first came out for WRX they were pretty hard to find out there. My modding first began with simple suspension mods and an SPT exhaust. From there I went to a Stg 2 and boy that's all it took....once I got a taste for some pony I started looking into a much more detailed motor build and who I would trust to do it.

    Currently, I have done the following-

    >Full interior by JPMcoachworks
    -Dash, Pillars, Lower dash, Doors & Headliner
    -Complete switch out to STI(black) interior hardware
    >STI center Dash Swap w/ Factory Seat Heaters relocated (Thanks Rob!)
    >Gtspec Steering wheel covered in Alcantara
    >Defi Boost
    >Defi OP
    >AEM WB
    >WC LatheWorks Ti Teardrop knob w/ custom family crest engraved
    >Interior windshield 80% Heat Reflective film
    >Hard Wired Escort radar
    >Laser Interceptor Quad (Fr&Rr)
    >6k interior LED throughout
    >Subaru Red Floor board illumination kit

    >APR carbon lip
    >VG Garage Shark fin antenna
    >Full exterior 6k LED/HID
    >STI mirror swap w/ blinkers (folding JPM winkers are on the way)

    >GSC Power Division S1 cams
    >GSC Power Division Beehive Springs & Ti Retainers
    >Performance valve job by TSM
    >Manley Platinum Pistons- 99.50STD Bore, 8.5:1
    >STI Oil Pump
    >STI Engine gaskets
    >STI Timing belt
    >Killer B Motorsports Ultimate Oil Pickup
    >Process West FMIC
    >Blouch DOM 1.5XT-R 10cm
    >Perrin inlet
    >TSM Top Feed 850
    >Crawford Performance Air/Oil Separator
    >Process West Intake
    >Invidia Equal length "Big Piping Race"
    >DEI Header Wrap
    >Torque Solutions Engine/Trans Pitch stop
    >TSM 340LPH Fuel Pump
    >ACT HD/Race 6 pad Clutch Kit & Flywheel
    >Samco Custom camo solar flare hoses(6 months to have made..never doing that again)
    >Subtle Solutions Stainless Steel radiator shroud
    >Subtle Solutions Stainless Steel Alternator cover

    >KW V3 Coil Overs
    >Vorshlag Custom camber plates
    >Goodridge SS brake lines
    >StopTech "Trophy" Fr&Rr (my favorite mod)
    >Gtspec Front Tower
    >Gtspec Rear Cage
    >Gtspec rear Sway
    >Gtspec Fender Braces
    >kartboy endlinks
    >Cusco rear control arms

    >ADVAN RACING RGD 18x9.5 +40
    >Michelin SS


    will continue later...

    It's funny how life sometimes plays out. I had started switching over the headliner and the pillars with suede after a good friend in Vegas had done his STI with it, including the dash. A short time after that, I began following Robs build on NASIOC...just like 10,000 other people did and I began looking into Alcantara and Topspeed as well. After owning the car for about a year, I moved back home to North Florida to be closer to my family. Just so happens I'm about 5 hours south of you guys now, so calling up Mike @ Topspeed was a no brainer. That's how I met Rob and a few others that work with Mike. Rob introduced me to the great folks @ JPM and things were really coming together fast. Since the first build, I've made about three other changes to the car which all include staying in Atlanta for a few days or in some cases flying home. I'm now looking into a 6 speed swap to be done first before any power modifications are done, but we've put together a plan for the power which I'm grateful the internals are already beefed up to handle the increase.
