I decided to finally put together a build thread for my 05 STI. I haven't done too much to it yet but plan on it in the very near future. I purchased the car in the fall of 2009 after wanting an STI for years. I found a completely bone stock car with 53,000 miles on Craigslist that was owned by an older guy. The car had never been driven in the winter and was extremely clean. First day of ownership: I drove it for the remainder of the fall and then parked it in the garage for the winter. The next summer I decided it was time for a little bump in power so I had Bullwinkle tune it stage 1. I really liked the how the stage 1 tune smoothed out the power band and brought the boost on earlier in the RPM Range. Stage 1 tune results: I drove the car with the stage 1 tune for two years and then met Derek (Ofspunk7). That is where things started getting sketchy . Derek gave me a ride in his 2009 WRX with a stage 2 E85 set-up and a Nuke tune. I couldn't believe how much faster his car felt than mine! After getting back in my car it felt extremely slow and I had to do something about it.......So I did! Bring on the go fast parts! List of parts: Invidia Q300 exhaust Invidia V2 Down-pipe (Ceramic coated by Grimmspeed) DW 850 cc injectors DW 300 lph fuel pump ACT HD clutch ACT Street-light fly-wheel Grimmspeed 3-port EBCS Grimmspeed ceramic coated turbo heat-shield Grimmspeed DP Gasket Golan stainless steel fuel filter Forge BPV I also updated the brakes with Hawk HP pads and Frozen Rotors. After receiving all of the parts I brought the car over to NF Performance and met Nuke, Fuji and Roger for the first time......NF installed all of the parts and Nuke tuned the car on E85 and Pump gas. The car felt absolutely amazing! I was actually kind of scared of the car until I learned how to deal with new found power. Crappy PDF of the Dyno Sheet from RS Motors is at the bottom: Made 292 HP and 323 TQ. at 21 PSI Got me an NF Sticker yo!
