So this is my build journal for my 2008 wrx sedan .

I bought this car in april 2008 in Grande Priaire, AB , CANADA.

This car was bought with the purpose in mind of a well rounded car for winter and summer and then it started, turbo addiction.

The car was never suposed to go this far but guess what i fell off the wagon and its a wolf in sheeps clothing .



For turbo setups i have had a vf52,hta68,gt3076 and gtx3576r ETS rotated kit i now have a PTE 6466 GEN 2 with a custom kit beign built in Russia as of 12, 2019.

For suspentions i have had megan coils,09 struts with eibach springs,bc coil overs, race comp tarmac 2 and now air lift performance with edo cvt setup.



I do my 90% of my own work minus the long block i had built by outfront motorsports and my paint spary work .I stripped the car and reinstalled all parts but the doors after paint and before hand.



been building the car since new and its been on and off the back burmer for 6 years.



Thanks to my family and eric my tuner at torqued performance both who had spent tons of time dealing with me being cheap lol and always giving me help .

How do you like the headlight bulbs? Are they dimmer than stock? Did you just replace the bulbs or did you have to do something else?

Totally digging the look!
