                                               2016 Crystal Black Silica WRX
After my old car called it quits on the way home from a snowboard trip in Fernie, I started looking for a new vehicle.
I ended up going to Subaru city one day to look at a 2012 forester and walked out the door with a 2106 WRX Sport in Crystal Black Silica.

The week after I picked it up I headed over to 10secdream place for a new vehicle prep. Car looked amazing when I picked it up. Link below to his thread on it.
http://www.westernsubaruclub.com/smf/index.php?topic=51559.0.0

Currently the car has some simple cosmetic mods, nothing to serious. Currently going to work on getting the car set up for winter.
Come Spring I will start to work on some simple power mods. The car is my daily driver so wont be looking to make any serious power.

Had a few more goodies show up early this week.

My Rokblokz short flaps arrive as well as the GCS Switch Blade Key
I also picked up a set of rims on the weekend, Enkie Raijins.




The Key was a bit of a pain to get setup as the FOB buttons didn't quite sit right in the openings, I ended up having to file the openings to make them slightly larger.

Not the biggest update but started getting a bit more prepared for the winter season.
(Crappy Phone Pics)

Husky liners came in the other day and so far I'm happy with the fit of them, should help to keep the interior nice and clean.

Also picked a new to me set of Hankook Winter IPike RS with 7/32 worth on Tread left..
being mounted tomorrow and will have them on to the stock rims for the Winter.

Nice looking WRX!
How do you like the Husky liners so far and where did you order them from?

Post by: hunts_13 on October 20, 2016, 08:24:18 PM
Thanks,  I'm happy with how it looks for now.

I've had them for about a week now and so far so good. 
I'm really happy with the fit and they seem to stay in
place very well so far. 

I ended up ordering them off there website.  Took about a week to arrive.

Had a decently productive weekend.

Started off by getting the winter tire setup on the car, back to stock rims  :(
Also changed the oil with Penzoil Ultra Platinum 5W30 Syn and installed a battery blanket that came with the car.

Next I decided to get rid of the stickers and yellow caps in the engine bay.

And finally I had quite a bit of tail light overlay left from wrapping my rear fog light, so I decided to wrap my front fogs.

Caps are actually the stock caps.
I looked for replacement ones for awhile but couldn't find any so I decided just to paint the stock ones.
Overall pretty happy with how they turned out.

Interesting colour on the fogs. Be careful you don't get ticketed for having red lights on the front of the vehicle.

Thanks, I just used some Krylon colour master spray paint. Used a Red touch up pen from a previous car I had to highlight some of the labeling.

Thanks for the heads up, it did cross my mind during the install that it may cause me some issues.
I'm hoping the fact that I never turn them on (since the Light output was ishtay even before wrapping them)
will keep me out of trouble.

If I start having issues its easy enough to just peel it off.

Dash Cam in the other day along with the hard wire kit and add a fuse.
Spent this morning installing it.

Tackled the last project I had for the winter set up which was the roof rack set up.
I picked up the final piece for it last week from Dylan780 (thanks for the sale!) the Yakima Fat Cat 6.



(https://c8.staticflickr.com/6/5561/31062661815_1cd27bf1b4_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/PjUg9K)IMG_0740 (https://flic.kr/p/PjUg9K) by Sheldon Hunt (https://www.flickr.com/photos/sheldonhunt/), on Flickr


I started with test fitting the rack system.
To make sure it fit correctly and to see how much over hang there would be on the 55 inch bars.
(https://c5.staticflickr.com/6/5321/30920289892_0033e68790_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/P7jyWq)IMG_0751 (https://flic.kr/p/P7jyWq) by Sheldon Hunt (https://www.flickr.com/photos/sheldonhunt/), on Flickr


There was more over hang then I wanted, so I ended marking and then trimming the end of the bars.
I forgot to take an after photo but will get one once I have the set up back on the car.

Next up I had to wait a day or 2 for the vinyl to show up. Once it did I started on wrapping the fairing.

Next up was the Yakima board carriers, one wrapped one to go...

Last was the Thule Bars themselves after cutting them down I decided to wrap them in matte blood red to
try and tie them into the color of the accents on my car.
You can kinda see the shorter length of the bars.

lastly a mock of what it will look like all together.

I cant decide whether I want to put some type of logo on the fairing whether it be Thule, Subaru, WRX, ect....
I will take a few photos after I mount in on the car.

Yes they will be well protected and look brand new when I got to sell them next year once I upgrade to a cargo box.

I've Boarded there a few times. We've gone at the beginning of January the last few years.
There wasn't as much snow as last year but was still definitely worth the trip.
Its by far my Favorite hill to ride.  ;D

Glad to hear its good! It's an awesome hill. I miss the quick 45min trip from Kelowna to the lift...also the powder days...

It snowed about 18 cm the day we were leaving, was bit upset we had to leave. I like the fact though it might not snow for 4-5 days and your still able to find some powder lines.

Picked Up a few more Items this weekend and got a few things done on the car.

Changed the oil with Penzoil Ultra Platinum 5w30 and cleaned and reoiled the Perrin air filter.
Also installed LG dash cam hardiwre kit as well the Diode Dynamics tails as turn module.

Next up were a few parts I picked up from fellow member Cha0tik.

First up the OEM STI badged front lip

Second was The Nameless Axle back Exhaust

It had quite a bit of carbon build up so i cleaned them as best I could.

And finally installed pics

Have had the exhaust on for 2 days now and I'm thinking its going to be a bit too loud for my taste. I'll leave it on for the next week or 2 to see if it grows on me, but most likely I'll either end up selling it or look to possibly trade for a different set up.

Thanks for the compliments guys! Excited for Spring to get the summer setup back on.

TBH with the CVT I don't find it pops or bangs much. I think my biggest issue is it drones too much at highway speed for me.
I think the 4 inch mufflers would have been perfect , or I could try a resonated STI mid pipe to see if that helps.

Interesting. I never found my WRX droned with either of my Nameless exhausts (both muffler deletes) on the highway. Must be the difference in gearing between then manual and CVT.

Spent yesterday installing the Diode Dynamics C-Lights. Was a little concerned about pulling apart the headlights.
I've done it before but always been someone else's car, always a bit more concerning when its your own.
Overall though it went fairly smooth. Only issue I ran into was the Diode Dynamics DRL harness didn't work so
I ended making my own.


Didn't take any pics during the install, too busy trying to make sure I didn't screw it up.
Couldn't decide what to do with the side markers. I ended up blacking them out and I'm pretty happy with the look.

DRL set up

Had a few small parts show up this week.
Will hopefully get them installed this week end when I put the summer wheels on and
pull the mud flaps and the roof rack off for summer.

Also Ordered a set of Nitto NT555 which will be going on Tuesday.

Switched over to the summer rims this weekend, also was able to get the splash guards installed.
Installed the blower motor cover it helped a ton with the annoying fan noise.
Also decided to remove the WRX badge from the rear.

With the weather being crappy out the last 2 days, decided I should install some of the random little cosmetic pieces I had laying around.
Also installed a set of Endless SSY brake pads I picked up from 10SecDream.

I'm happy with how everything turned out. I'll have to grab some better photos once the car is a bit cleaner but these will do for now.

Started on a few interior pieces.
Redline shift boot with red stitching as well as GCS Paddle shifter extensions.

Up next was the brake pads, decided to paint the calipers and throw on some Subaru decals at the same time.
Also pick up some tire lettering as well.

Yup gottalove the fake carbon fiber, though to be honest it doesnt bother me as much as thought they would.
Theyll still end up probly getting wrap in black to match the rest of the dash peices though.

Postman dropped of a new toy yesterday  ;D
Excuse the crappy cellphone pics.

Going off the reviews on forums online and talking to a couple people I wasn't expecting a drastic change, mostly just a little less rev hang and maybe a little more power in the higher RPM's.
I gotta say though it felt like quite a drastic change to me, everything just feels better, seems to have more power at all rpm's, the shifts feel a lot crisper and and the throttle is much more responsive.
The shifting is where I noticed the largest change, I'm guessing the fact that I have the CVT  may play into this factor a bit.

Overall super happy with the change!

Small Update

Picked up a Mishimoto charge pipe awhile back, just got around to installing about 2 weeks ago.

Few other parts on order, Torque Solutions EGR and TGV deletes and Grimmspeed EBCS should be here by mid next week.
I'd like to stock pile a few more parts over the winter, then install everything at once in the spring before its Tuned.

Looks great dude! Keep us updated on the rest of the installs and once you get it pro-tuned.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge;  Are you running the charge pipe as it is? OTS tune? Cobb? It's safe to run as such without a pro-tune in it's current status right? You'd do the pro-tune after the TGV/ EGR's?

:)

Currently Running on Cobb OTS 91 map. Mishimoto states that it is safe to run without pro-tune. I was a bit hesitant at first but all the data seems to be fine so far and the logs look pretty much the same as before install. Don't think there is really benefit to it though without the pro-tune.

Plan is to do the tune after the EGR and and TGV deltes, EBCS, Lightweight crank pulley are installed.
Hoping to pick up either the Grimmspeed top mount inter cooler or Process West top mount by then as well.

Slightly larger diameter and more natural bends with less restrictive points.

Did you buy the pitch stop mount as well to prevent it from tearing out of the firewall?

Only reason I haven't upgraded the pitch stop is I need to spend the dollars on the mount as well.

Looked at getting it but felt it was way over priced. Plan on stealing my brother in-laws shop come spring and custom making one instead.

Last of my Black Friday parts finally showed up on the Friday before Christmas.

Moroso Catch Can for the PVC side. Was able to get this Installed over the weekend. Excuse the horrible install pick, garage heater broke and it was too dam cold to care about taking decent photos.

Are the FA setups less prone to condensation/gunk buildup in the lines than the GDs? Just gotta have the lines routed so they don't freeze up?

Yeah haha Iève already noticed have to drain it once every few days.

Haven't had any freezing issues yet but I'll keep an eye on that.


Washed the car today after getting back from a ski trip at Big White. Also was able to get the new fog light bulbs installed and removed the red lens tint and replaced with clear.

I really like the look of the fog lights without any coloured film....hmmm....
How did you find the output on asphalt in the dark? I find in rain, the asphalt tends to soak up anything around 6000k

I found this actually too recently. I clean my headlights almost every day when it's snowing / slushy outside because I drive on Deerfoot and want to see, but when the slush / snow melts and it becomes just wet asphalt, even after cleaning my headlights they don't seem to light much up :(


Subie's looking really good bro. The red pinstripe looks so awesome on the black!

I haven't really had much of chance to try out the fog lights yet, but I've never really had any issues with the headlights on wet asphalt. Never really felt like they were under powered or not bright enough, maybe because the headlights on my last car were POS that it was such a drastic change that I don't notice any issues?

Decided to install gurney flap last night.
Excuse the horrible pics... it was cold, late and to be honest didn't really feel like taking the time.
The car was clean until the drive to work this morning....

It's rather large, the hardware. Personal preference comes into play, but I think I'd try to find some slightly smaller stuff that fits

I'm not sure how much smaller you could go as the holes in the flap are slotted so you need a bit larger hardware to cover the holes.
The only option would be maybe to go with a larger head bolt and lose the washer. might give it a cleaner look ?
I thought about switching them out for some burnt titanium bolts but I'm thinking it might be a bit much.

The side view is not quite as appealing but I think I can deal with since I really enjoy the look from the back. Also I think it wont be as noticeable once the car is lowered and I have the summer rims back on.
The black hardware will be staying for the time being, might play around with a few ideas in Photoshop.

Thank Man!

Since it was a bit nicer out today I decided to install the Prolightz fog lights bezels. Was a pretty easy install, other then the right side bezels was dam tight going in.
The Color is slightly off from the Diode Dynamics C-lights but its hard to tell in the photos. I also decided to wrap the stock Turn signals as it seem redundant to have 3 turn signals.
Wasn't sure what i wanted to do with them so for right now I wrapped in them black vinyl to match the bezels.

Overall I'm pretty happy with them.
Old VS New

The red accent stickers will fit your motif. Look fly as uckfay.

Agreed.  Looks great in the living room but would better on your car.  That's a great price as well for those wheels.

Of the three colours you posted, bronze. But those gramlights are super nice, so those would be my first choice.
+1 for this.

So after looking at the Gramlights, I ended up not going with them. I wasn't really feeling the semi-gloss finish in black, they seemed to almost blend into the tire.

So instead to day I orderd a set of Avid1 Av 20's in the Matte Bronze.
18x9.5 +38  should be here in about a week   8)


Couple of Pics of what they looks like

Yeah I kept coming back to the AV20's, I've always liked the look of Bronze or Gold on Black Subaru's

Also small part cam in today. New LED lights for the license plate as well as Diode Dynamics Smart Tap Relay.

Well looked what showed up on friday  :D
Tires will be going on Monday/Tuesday. I think I will removed the white lettering from
last year though as I think it will be too much now with the bronze rims.

Got the tires all mounted up today, its going to be hard to resist the urge to put them on the car.
Removed the white lettering as it was just too much with the bronze rims.

Also Picked up the Invidia Q300 exhaust from 10secdream last week along with a few other small goodies.
Installed the exhaust same day. Super happy with the sound, just loud enough for me without being obnoxiously loud.
The tips look much better then stock as well as it really fills in the exhaust holes in the bumper.

Mega fan of the concave design on these. +1 for the wheels and +1 for the invidia, one of the most tasteful sounding exhausts ever.

Always wanted the black/bronze combo.
Having access to the work truck does come in handy.

Could't be happier with the exhaust, been looking for a used one since I took the nameless muffler deletes off.

With the long weekend took a bit of time to get the lowering springs on.
Took me about 4 hours to get the old ones out and the new ones in... as well as about another 1.5 to take the fronts back out after I realized put a spacer in the wrong spot  :sarcasm:
 
In total it dropped the car about and 1.25 inches front and back. The ride is definitely a bit stiffer but overall still pretty comfortable. Forgot to take a before photo so and photo will have to do.

Before:

Really wanted to install the summer rims as well but its just too early. so I tested fitted one just to see the color combo.

Decided To change up the badges as well to match the new rims better.

Had a bit of free time last night so decided to fix some issues I had with the armrest of the car. I always found that it was too hard and didn't have enough padding in it. Also every time i leaned on it it would kinda Click/Pop so wanted to find out what was the cause of that. I also noticed that the leather cover was starting to come unglued from the frame.

Soon as I had it unbolted I found what was causing the Click/Pop everytime I leaned on it.
I guess I lean a little to hard on it.....  :sarcasm: Found 2 broken spots on the underside of the lid. Ended up gluing them back together, will see how they hold up.

Once I had the leather cover off I could see what the factory foam looked like, It was pretty thin.
Thought about removing it but it was glued on pretty well so decided to just add the new foam over top.
Used upholstery glue to attch the new layer of foam and gave it about 1 hour to dry. Once it was dry I trimmed the corners a bit to round it off and give it a better shape. (pic below is before shaping)

Once it was shaped I reinstalled the leather cover. It was a bit tight but went on fairly smoothly.
I don't think I could have went with any thicker foam as the ends of the leather cover just reached around to the back side enough to
re-glue them any thicker and they wouldn't have reached. Reinstalled it in the car. Feels a 100x better then the stock one, Much more comfortable on the elbow and forearm.

Also our Fleet manager at work ordered a pallet of heat and Noise canceling insulation for our work trucks, so I was able to get a box for free for the car.  ;D
Will hopefully be enough to do all 4 doors and and maybe underneath the rear seats.

Oh nice!! I got that same Noico stuff, but haven't had time yet to do the install. I'm planning on doing the rear deck lid and under the seats in the back to stop rattles from the subwoofer hopefully! I might do 2 layers, I have a lot of material ;D  The doors will be the annoying part. Will see if I can get 1 done each day.

I agree the doors will be the most annoying. I plan on starting from the back and working my way forward. I could probably grab an extra box or 2 from work if I needed (They ordered 85 boxes of it  :o)
So I may do a 2 layer sin some areas as well.

Nope no roll was needed. but it was dam close. I think when these tires are worn out and I replace them with a 255 I'll need to do a slight roll.

So I have the Dyno booked with Airboy for Monday June 11th >:D
Need to install the EGR and TGV deletes that weekend so if anyone has a garage I could borrow in Calgary that weekend let me know, that way I don't have to trailer the car down.

Picked up some maintenance Items as well
Motul 75w90 for the diffs and some coolant for when I do the EGR delete. Also order a set of Push retainers since I have broken probably half on the front bumper taking it off so many time  :sarcasm:
They seem like decent quality but will see how well they do with the frigid temperatures in the winter.
Also waiting on a new gasket for the Charge pipe as well as new spark plugs, and trying to find place to buy the Subaru High Torque CVT fluid (Blue Stuff) it seems the dealer only sells it by the pail... and I only need about 2 L to install the CVT cooler.

Ended up not being a fan of the H&R springs. they were a bit too stiff for daily driving so ended up swapping them out for a set of Eibachs instead.
Been super happy with them so far ride almost the same as stock but with a .8 inch drop instead of the 1.2 with the H&R springs.
I think they have a bit more settling to do and haven't had time to grab any pics of the updated set up yet.

Also picked up a Cusco Master cylinder brace from 10SecDream. Decided to spray it wrinkle black before installing as I was not a fan of the blue.
Seems to make a slight difference in the pedal feel, definitely a bit firmer.

Looks good!

I've bought those clip kits before because I didn't want to spend 7/clip from the dealer, but then nothing worked. Hopefully you have better luck.

I decided to but some detailing gear to try my hand at it. So this past weekend, I washed, clayed, paint correction, polished and sealed the car.
It's by no means as perfect but I'm happy with the outcome for my first attempt at it.

On another note and much shittier update. Took the car into Subaru yesterday for a Noise in the front end. Sound almost like a high pitch whine and could feel a slight shimmy in both he Gas and Brake pedal.
Dropped the car off at 8 am got a call at noon that the noise was from the transmission  :'( Luckily they are covering it under warranty, Parts alone are just over $9,800 not including fluids. Transmission is suppose to in by Friday and will have it installed sometime next week.

And now for some photo, tired a different editing style. Let me know what you think.

Really sucked about the trans bro but thankfully a few things are that it's under warranty and that this also happened a week before you were going to get it pro-tuned and dyno'd down here eh!!

Hopefully the fix is quick and simple and you'll have 'er back out smiling around corners again soon!!!

Didn't get a chance to talk to the tech but the paperwork says, "Failure at output Shaft". So I'm guessing the bearing.

Yup both were really lucky. Yeah Will be nice to have it fix and enjoy it for the summer. The it may be time to trade it in.

The car itself looks great. The sky is blow out, and the yellow hue makes the background hard to look at.

Could you upload an original for reference? I am curious to see

Also After a few delays due to back orders the new transmission is in.
Didn't really notice how bad the old one was until the  new one was installed. There was definitely a lot of hesitation and slippage going on that I didn't really noticed.

Other than that not much for updates. I think the plan is now to hold off on any of the parts that required a tune and just drive the car for awhile.

2 rims both passenger side.


Haha luckily she's about the only thing more important then the car.

LOL

But, sorry to see. Does she understand how this is important to you?

Before she had even told me, she had called 3 places to get quotes to fix and one to order replacements. She felt horrible  :'(
Cheapest quoted was $175 per rim to fix. probably end up going that route.

Haven't updated in awhile, not much has changed been mostly just driving and enjoying the car.
Car rolled over 100,000 km a few days after Christmas.
Few small updates though my Lg dash cam quit a few weeks back so I picked up a new one.
Also picked up a Thule Cargo box from a friend and re-wrapped the roof rack for this season.
