Alright, not much to report at the moment except a couple of new pics, but hopefully next week or the week after I'll be getting my Steeda intake. Kind of busy figuring out the logistics of a move up to Mass, so stuff's in the air. Decided on running 17x7.5 gold Sparco Asseto Garas + 225/45/17 Michelin Pilot Super Sports come Spring/Summer, and planning on grabbing some Blizzaks to put on the stock wheels for the cold months ahead (in standard fitment for the stock wheels). Almost 3000mi on the clock, running 93 oct and getting great mileage. :D

In the meantime:



Right after a wash, clay, and wax.

Still waiting on another package (from FSWERKS) before stuff goes on the car.

Bunch of stuff arrived over the past few days. All of it's going on the car Sunday! Once parts are on, I'll do some exhaust clips (stationary outside/inside, in-car drive).

Exhaust is on.








New knob--the STS kit is to be installed within the next few days, but I felt like popping on the Blox knob before that:


Steeda CAI (You can't see the beautifully-machined MAF pipe/velocity stack in this shot) :


Better pics + video clips to come, as well as a quick comparison of the stock throw and the shortened through from the STS+bracket setup.

I really have to get around to doing a clip of it.

Pretty raunchy. It's loud, so I guess it isn't for everyone. The Steeda CAI has a bunch of induction whistle and wakes the motor up a bit. Together with the exhaust, you can hear the car coming from around two and a half, three blocks away. The tone itself is pretty deep, but at high revs/WOT, it gets a sort of throaty, trumpeting sound. I like it a lot. Nice burbles and sizzle on the overrun/downshifts.

My friends with an '04 WRX compared the combo of the intake + exhaust to their friend's '98 WRX. A couple of other people have said this setup sounds boxer-ish, and I have to agree, even if it's not quite as low/bassy as a Subaru.
