New Beginnings: 2007 WRX

Discussion in 'Member Journals & Project Build Stories' started by justinxecushyn, Sep 9, 2015.

  1. This for me is a new era and yet a return to one of the things that made For years since 2008, i've owned WRX's. A few life changes occurred and had me re-evaluate myself, my family life, my career, just a lot of things. I'm finally at a point, to start back focusing on things that make me happy. So, enter my new-ish 2007 WRX. Super stock, 50k miles on it. I plan on making it a nice and fun daily with the occasional track event here and there.

    Enough of that shit. Here are the pics:

  2. Few changes made.

    I saw this on craigslist. Wished it was an auto as I unfortunately have to have one. Glad someone picked it up. It looks worlds better without those chrome rims!
  13. Still considering going with your trunk. I'm not sure how the paint would match up though.
  14. And thanks everyone.

    The local TECH Chief approves of this message.

    Nice turn-around on the car. I love that year.
  19. Probably can use a set of fender braces and a good powder coated wrinkle black intake manifold...

    I got some of them fender braces if you are looking for a set, Mine is being parted, mostly drivetrain and turbo parts left.
  21. Considering installing these...hummm

  22. Lowered looks so much better: added pics to the og post as well.

  23. Large TMIC installed:

  24. Whew who new front sway bar and end links installed. What a difference it makes to say the least.

    One of my favorite mods so far for my car...makes it feel more like the car wants to be in the corners...

    Sways and endlinks make a huge difference on our GDs! I have whiteline 27mm front/24mm rear, rear mounts, and adjustable pillow ball endlinks. This was night/day! I recently did the Cusco Rear Lower Subframe Bar so I could mount the 06/07 rear diffuser. I actually feel a difference since the Cusco bar was added.
  27. Updated the install list. New items (TGV Deletes, injectors, inlet, turbo, and tune) to be completed this week @ Allpro.

    Looking great! It looks so much better with the new wheels you put on.
  34. Thanks man, it has come a long long long way from where it was when I originally got it. I may be offloading it to get a 2011 hatch.
  35. Transmission took a shit and the rear diff. LGT gearset into the case and rear diff installed.
