Subaru STI goodness...

 

 

After you have already owned not one but two Mazdaspeed Proteges (blue and grey one), what do you go after next? 3 simple letters... STi, as in WRX STi. What you see here is Subaru's latest version of the almighty WRX. This car is no joke right out of the box with 14.7 lbs of boost and making about 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft to the flywheel. So what do you do when your blessed with such nice specs right out the box? Make it better!

For starters Paul decided to add a Cobb intake. Mods were supposed to be limited but after getting hit by the mod bug he then added a Cobb AccessPort, Heatshield, and downpipe. These mods I guess were not enough so then re-flashed the AccessPort to a stage 2 and bolted up an authentic ARC turbo back exhaust. Similar setups have consistently seen numbers around 340 lb-ft and 300 horsepower to the wheels. Which also will launch you down the quarter mile at about the mid 12's mark...not bad.
