Darren's MY13 STI Spec R

Postby MYDZYR » Wed Oct 26, 2016 2:34 pm

Been a member for almost a year now and been absolutely loving my STI Spec R! Bought it bone stock but have done a few small things along the way so I thought I might as well start up a build thread (even though it's not much of a build).

Mods:
- Invidia Q300 Turbo Back Exhaust w/ Titanium Tips
- TuSpeed 3 Port Boost Solenoid
- Process West CAI
- Tuned at GotItRex (178awkw)
- DBA 4000 T3 Front Slotted Rotors
- DBA T2 Rear Slotted Rotors
- Intima SS Brake Pads All Round
- Volk Racing TE37SL Wheels (18 x 9.5 +40) wrapped in Kumho 245/40/18 tyres
- Project KICS Lug Nuts (Neochrome)
- BC BR Coilovers
- STI Strut Brace

Cosmetics:
- Black STI Front Fender Badges
- HT Autos Rear Diffuser, Side skirt and Rear Lip Extensions
- V Limited Front Lip
- Weathershields + Roof Spoiler
- Vinyl Badge Overlays
- Yellow Fog Light Tint
- Carbon Fibre Wrapped Roof and Door Handles
- Perrin Alternator & Radiator Shroud

When I first got it:

Yeah I have the same car and was wondering why only 178kw with a TBE? (mine is untuned so far but I've seen others with only dump pipe and tune running close to 200)

Id say it is to do with the Automatic gearbox guys, puts down power differently.

Oh right I totally forgot you could get an auto with that model. With the variances in dynos plus the auto I'm sure it still goes pretty good

Yep forgot to mention that in my post. Much to people's dismay it is Auto so unfortunately the power figure is not as good as what it could potentially be with a manual box. But either way I'm incredibly pleased with how it runs. It is my daily after all lol

Thanks mate, they are just vinyl overlays I found on eBay. Don't remember the store name but they should be pretty easy to find!

Sorry for the late reply, sold the car a few months ago so not so active on here now.
