Damn, possibly the most heavily modded 08 WRX around. First one I've seen with internals anyways. With that build I would go nothing short of a 20g.

NICE numbers too for shitty 91 octane and only 17 psi.

Thanks for the replys!!
The reason the motor is overbuilt for my setup now is......
I spun a rod bearing at 3000 miles, and had to tear the motr apart. I wanted to built it back up with quality parts while I had it apart. I had just bought the sti turbo and tmic.... so.... could I put a bigger turbo on and make more power, sure, but my bank acount is crying for mercy. I have a few plans for later, but for now it has to stay how it is. A bigger turbo and front mount I am sure will cross paths with the car at some point...
The next two projects are coilovers and a big brake kit....
Talk to you guys later.

Yes, taking the motor apart at 3k miles was not in my plan for the car. I am not even sure what caused it.

I wanted a blue wrx but this was what the dealership had, and the silver has grown on me.
Thanks for all the replys....
Later

I like your rims... what size are they? If I hadn't gotten the NT03+M's I would have bought those. They're VERY light for their size: especially compared with the stock wheels

They are 17x8. The nt03+m were my other choice of wheel. I like both alot.
