Part reviews, installs, photos and more..

Welcome to the site! Where I give you my take on my 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi built for auto-cross and my daily driven lifted 2006 Subaru Forester XT.

Bringing my thoughts on these parts, installing them and what works and why. A few install guides here and there and many photos of my adventures in both cars. #modmonday has been a staple to my Instagram and the archives are located below to help you make your choices.

About

These are the two vehicles in all their glory. The Forester sports an Anderson Design Fabrication 2” lift kit with 235/70R15 Firestone Destination A/t tires. Find further information in the FAQ section below and #modmondays for mods.

On the other hand the STi sits low on Feal Suspension 442s with 9k/8k spring rates to keep the tires stuck to the pavement. Also aiding in that are the 255/40R17 Bridgestone Re-71rs. The STi is/was my dream car and still continues to make me smile.

It is mostly at home on the auto-x course given it’s stiff suspension and aggressive alignment angles. It is still a blast to drive around on the street.

What is a #modmondays?

#modmondays started from my Instagram and the archives are stored here. Every Monday I find a modification on my car to further delve in to.

These reviews speak about the part, what it does and how I have enjoyed it over the time from installed to the review date. I try to update them if anything has changed and inform you what it does to improve and the longevity.

If you have any further questions on the parts leave a comment!

Safety reminder:

All DIYS and installs should be performed by trained individuals. Understand your skill level and always take the proper safety precautions when working on a vehicle. I can assume no liability for damages to you or your vehicle via these guides. There is only one of you and you are very important to many people, keep this in mind!

Starting with my first car I have been adding mods and making my cars my own for many years. Going through two Honda Civics (92 hatch, 99 SI) I moved on to Subaru and have over 12 years of ownership of Subarus. Starting with a 2004 Wrx and moving on to my current stable of my 05 STi and 06 Forester XT.

My happy place is photographing, fixing and driving these cars. And now writing up their parts and repair journeys on this website. Otherwise, I am probably listening to my favorite music while updating my build threads, watching youtube car videos or looking up new ways to modify either car.
