Future Plans:
Most of my current plans are to turbocharge my newest RA that use to belong to Smike and Otter. However my short term plans for this car are mainly maintenance related. Fix some pops and squeaks, replace the cracked front bumper. Remove all of the plastidip and see about switching to vinyl wrap. Replace the exhaust with the one from the other RA. Bigger TB, with a cold air intake. Transmission cooler, and maybe an LSD conversion if the tranny ever needs any maintenance. And replace the Evo wing with the factory one. Then just keep it clean for a while.

In the long term though. Id like to come back to this car after I do a complete build on a spare 4G69 engine I have. Do a brembo brake swap. And it may sound silly and far fetched but I have always day dreamed about swapping out the Automatic FWD drivetrain for an 5 speed AWD drivetrain. Maybe it'll never happen, but I would be disappointed if I dont at least try it.

Other Info:
I bought the car back in 2010. The previous owner had cigarette burns all over the interior and blue neon lights all over the exterior. I removed those promptly. The car was meant to help me save money on gas. But it hasnt helped much because now I just go driving for the fun of being behind the wheel of this car. LMAO!

I started doing AutoX this year with this car. I race in the unlimited class for now and so far I haven't come in last despite being the newby!

I was the first RA owner (to my knowledge, I asked the community a while back) to install the Cusco Power Brace. LINK

And I recently had a user on Ebay steal pictures of my car so that he could sell the 06 STi lip to people after I went out on a limb to test it! Contacted him and he agreed to play nice and put my instagram username on the images for me. LINK
