    Title says it all - brand new set-up, mid section and mufflers.
    Had a go at Fujitsubo system and got bitterly disappointed since it was way too loud than I expected. HKS is just more refined, in many aspects.

    Your cars always seem to have that level of cleanliness and refinement that a lot of people, myself included, strive for. Well done sir.

    On a side note, I may PM you in the future to discuss axle back fitment for the BLE. I kind of want to change my set up if I can find one of the few options I am looking for at a reasonable price. I would likely have to get them shipped to the US. I really like the look of the STI Sport quad tip mufflers.

    Thank you sir! I just snap photos when the car is clean This one is so damn hard to clean/keep clean though, blue colour was so much easier, not to mention beige interior :/ You can see all the dust and dirt on it, especially after a few drops of rain.

    Sure, flick me a pm or we can discuss in yours or my 3.0R threads if you do not mind others to see. STI quads are imho overpriced for what they are. And won't give you much increase in sound especially with the stock
    midsection.They probably will do a good job with containing unwanted noise levels and raspiness if you decide to upgrade your headers,do cat delete and mid pipe upgrade.

    Next mode: Impreza STI Spec.C version 11 brake calipers and braided brake lines + DBA T2 rotors


















    Initially I was planning to keep ver7 set up from the 3.0 but encountered a few issues along the way which I did not know about.



    1. Front is straight bolt-on, as expected, no issues there
    2. Rear calipers bolt-on with adapters but become offset too far from the center meaning pads do not cover the whole area of the disc
    3. v7 rear rotors center drums are higher than stock BR/GR rotors meaning the disc will scrape the caliper
    4. Front brakes lines are the same, rear are two-piece on BL and one long line on BR/GR - not interchangeable


    Became apparent that ver.7 set-up is too much of a pita to get sorted while ver.11 would've been a straight bolt-on solution. Was lucky enough to find a reasonably priced set, as a bonus they were off a spec.C STI (orange-ish gold vs black) and came with a set of STI braided lines (stock on spec.C).

    All of a sudden this thing attracted some interest

    I guess it is time for another update...

    1. Crystal Eye head and tail lights to make her look different. Blacked out headlights, smoked tails.





















    2. STI push start button









    3. OEM optional mesh grille went on at some stage, as well as a front Cusco strut brace







    4. Mitsuba Alpha II horns. No thank you, I hate Hellas if you were about to ask...





    5. Then it was a Ultra Rcaing 21mm RSB in place of a pathetic 15mm (my ass...) stock bar










    6. Blitz Hybrid AC filter








    7. HKS 13003-AF003 charge pipe. This was a major stuff-up, completely forgot that JDM models have electronic power steering and NZ/AU/US/EUDM have hydraulic with an extra pulley/belt etc which not surprisingly get in a way of a JDM pipe.









    I reckon this brings us up to date...
