HawkSTI

HawkSTI's errrrrm hawk sti

9 posts in this topic

Right, just thought I'd start one of these for the records. 

I'd  been after another impreza for a few years,having previously owned a 2002 wrx for 4 years. It had to be an sti this time, in either blob or hawk form. I also looked at a wr1's while I was looking. 

So the search began. I ended up looking and test driving a fair few cars, before I ended up buying this one. 

2006 (56) impreza wrx sti type uk

wr blue

full service history including 2 cambelt changes (one just done)

78'000 miles

only 1 owner from new (i'm the second)

very good condition, couple of stone chips on the bonnet but very clean and by far the cleanest of the ones I looked at. 

The car is 100% unmodified, as if it had just left the factory.

Few pictures from the advert:

Did the obligatory hpi check and all was clear. So paid for the car, taxed it (£535 😮😢) got it insured and off I went. 

I loved the car straight away. The power, the handling, the brakes and just the general feel of the car. Smiled all the home like a Cheshire Cat 😎

My origional plan was just to leave the car stock. It had enough power, it looked awesome, the handling was amazing. Why change anything?

that plan didn't last long. After realising the car was too quiet (literally it was almost silent) I started looking for a prodrive back box. I found one an hour away for £85 so couldn't resist. 

Pics of the origional sti box and new prodrive one, and jacked up getting fitted.

After fitting the new prodrive back box, the car was very slightly louder. More noticeable in the higher revs but more or less the same ticking over. 

After having the car 2 weeks, and getting to know the car better, I decided a bit more power to open it out a bit would be nice. I bought a cosworth panel filter to replace the stock one. So after doing a bit of research, my plans are...

prodrive backbox ✅ 

cosworth filter ✅ 

import size plates ✅ 

coilovers and geo set up

upgraded fuel pump

deresonated centre section

good remap

so that's were I'm at and what I have planned. No plans to go mad with modifications, most of the cash I spend will be on maintaining, running and enjoying it. It loves a good drink.

i'll update this as I tick bits off my list, and more than likely will add new ones too it at the same time 😂

O2c wr blue is the ONLY colour to have on a Subaru. If it's not wr blue it's not a real Subaru.

Here's a couple of random pics I took once I'd give it a good clean, clay and polish.  

(Now has square plates and only the sti badge on the boot remains, the rest have been taken off)

@Pixyflash thanks 👍

 

And yes! Small but noticible difference in sound and acceleration. A good upgrade I'd say for the price 😁
