History
I bought this car bone stock March, 2016. Shortly after the turbo gave out, so the only logical solution was upgrading to a VF39, STI intercooler, STI up pipe, 3" Invidia down pipe, and 3" exhaust. I just kept going after that...

Modifications

Drivetrain
VF39 turbo, STI Intercooler, STI up pipe, Invidia down pipe, 3" exhaust (it was actually purchased form my 99 RS years ago and sitting in the garage, I had it laying around so I used it. I plan to switch to a COBB exhaust), COBB lightened crank pulley, COBB intake, COBB 1.3 bar radiator cap, COBB Tuning access port tuned for Stage 3 Forester (generic map, should be getting it dyno tuned very soon).

Exterior
