2007 Subaru STi Limited – The Apple of My Eye

By admin | Uncategorized

 

Last week we had some downtime at world headquarters and happened to get a visit from our buddy Bobby. Bobby is the proud owner of one of the sweetest ’07 STi’s I’ve seen to date. Number 432 out of 800 made; it’s the right mix of “show” and “go” and it’s perfect for a daily driver.

We decided to take advantage of the visit and do an impromptu photo shoot so we could share this sweet ride with you. I always ask an enthusiast for their car’s story. Bobby didn’t hesitate and jumped right into dishing out the details!

“I went with the STi Limited because I wasn’t with the whole EVO scene and I liked the looks of the car and the aggressiveness straight from the factory. It was Turbo, 6 speed, heated leather interior and big brakes (all stock). What’s not to like?!”

“I have several TurboXS mods on it for sure. Great products and awesome people at TurboXS. Makes the modding fun and affordable, and they helped me get things done right the first time.”

 

Here is the list of mods on Bobby’s 2007 Subaru STi:

  • 2007 WRX STi Limited Urban Gray Metallic 72,000 miles
  • TurboXS FMICTurboXS Uppipe
  • TurboSmart 40mm External Waste Gate
  • TurboXS Downpipe (catless) Full 3″ exhaust. RFL set up, but RMA 3″ Muffler
  • SPT Intake
  • ACT 6 Puck Sprung Hub Clutch
  • Grimm speed Manual Boost Controller
  • Carbon Fiber radiator and alternator engine covers
  • Cobb Access Port
  • Porterfield R4S pads in front OEM pads in rear
  • ROTA SVN 18×8.5 42 offset
  • NEXEN NEXUS 255/35/18 tires all around
  • Apexi N1 coilovers with rear Cusco Pillowball mounts (Adjustable camber front and rear)
  • Whiteline sway-bars and endlinks front and rear
  • SPT underbody brace
  • eBay front strut tower bar
  • Short shifter with kartboy bushings
  • Lathewerks shifter ring
  • Full Red LED light conversion on interior electronics
  • DEFI EGT and BOOST gauge with AEM A/F gauge on center clock cluster
  • OEM subwoofer installed
  • New TypeC headlights with OEM wiring and HID’s
  • DDM HID fogs
  • Carbon front lip OEM style

When taking this thing on a spin, you can’t help but grin from ear to ear. It’s externally wastegated which gives you full potential to “rumble” if needed. Bobby had the car tuned here by Jermaine (the one and only), and it’s getting 300 whp and 342 tq. The great thing about Bobby’s car is that he’s added the right amount of modifications to it. He added power and plenty of flair, all while keeping it reliable. If you are a part of the Subaru community, you know the importance of this accomplishment.
