Journals / FROSTI, Colins 01 fSTI
« on: January 23, 2017, 01:27 PM »
So a few months ago I picked up a 2001 Subaru Forester STI, bought it from a friend who imported it at the beginning of summer. Luckily for me, he had taken care of all the annoying stuff for me including DOT headlights, safety inspection, paint protection and a detail to get rid of all the JDM grunge, and some other stuff.

Car was an Auction grade 4 with a B interior, pretty solid and when I saw this thing it was even more clean than I expected.

With slightly over 81000kms, and basically every feature you could want, it was perfect.

Beautiful stock BBS 17's that are apparently pretty rare, but I decided I was going to replace them anyway so I let the previous owner keep them in exchange for a discount.

Exterior & Interior / Custom Seat Mounts (updated)
« on: July 05, 2016, 11:22 AM »
So I had some seat mounts made from a guy a friend recommended to me.

Im looking for opinions on how they look/quality/strength, safety.

I will not name who made them as he said he would fix them for me and I will wait till that happens.

Also to be clear, the mount shown in the pictures is not officially the finished form (he intended to round some of the sharper edges, And also paint them black).

As the title says, I'm looking for spacers. I'd preferably like to "test fit" them first, but let me know what you have.


25 - 30mm 5x100 Hubcentric spacers.
center bore 54.1 preferably

Only need a pair.

As the title says. Im looking for lowering springs for a first gen Impreza which is 92 - 00. Only looking for a 1" - 2" drop, no more.

I can find them new for around 250 - 300, so if i can pick them up locally for under 200 that would be cool.

Let me know if you have anything. Will also consider coils for the right price.

Journals / SOLD: Colin's 92 Turbo Legacy
« on: January 11, 2016, 09:51 AM »
Been doing so much work on this thing, and I take pictures of nearly everything, though I might as well share it. Might be useful to someone.

Anyway, I picked this baby up a little over a year ago from Dave here on the forum, it was in awesome condition aside from a couple minor oil leaks, and a few old hoses.

After driving it for the winter, I only had to replace one of the turbo coolant lines (soft and burst), after that the rad went (old cracked plastic). Other than that, there were no real issues. I did the coffee cup mod that everyone recommends on the legacy forums and installed some hertz speakers, a pioneer head unit w/ BT. And a boost guage.

About a month after installing the boost gauge, one day i noticed the car wasn't hitting full boost (12 - 14 psi) it was only hitting 5psi - really consistently. This frustrates the heck out of me because I still haven't figured out why its doing this. The car seems to just randomly go into limp mode, some times its fine, sometimes its not. Luckily it drives just fine even when its in limp mode, just has less balls.

I decided I would fix the oil leaks this summer... That never happened though.

So this fall when I pulled the car out of its shed (when I messed up the trans on the Celica) I made a oil catch... Literally i took a peice of aluminum and bent it so it would catch the oil dripping from the timing cover so it wouldn't drip onto the headers. Then I messed up the trans on it doing a pull on the highway, shifted a bit too hard..

Current Mod Lists

Revtronix Tune w/ 14 psi Boost
3.5" Turbo Back Exhaust
Coffee Cup Mod
ACT Stage 2 Clutch
Diamond Racing Coil Pack
NGK Plug Wires (it counts)
02 WRX Transmission
Hertz Speakers
Pioneer Head Unit
Royal Wheel
Works Engineering Quick Release
Ice Guard Winter Tires
Plasti Dip Grille and Hood Scoop
Copper Spark Plugs
Cobb Shifter Bushings

And tons of new parts
