Steering Dampener Lock-Down

Problem…                                                 One day I was doing some R&D work on our WRX and noticed how sloppy the steering felt when the car was in the air. For whatever reason I was turning the steering wheel back and forth quickly and I could feel a strange rubbery feeling to it. This rubbery feeling drove me to look at […Continue Reading…]

Hella Horn Brack.... I Mean Fog Light Bracket

The Idea A while ago, a customer said something to me that made me think about a better purpose for the PERRIN Horn Bracket. I mean everyone loves a good horn and loves that look of the Hella horns behind their bumper. But really, who uses their horn enough to warrant that. For a matter of fact, why not just install some red circles behind your grill Ok, kidding aside, while horns are good to have and I loved my […Continue Reading…]

Gurney Flap for 2015 WRX

See our Poll on NASIOC to help us figure out which style you like!    NASIOC Poll for PERRIN Gurney Flap How This Came To Life Like a lot of parts I come up, it starts with something I make just for my car that I think no one else will want, and then it turns into a real part. This is exactly how the Wing Riser Kit for the 08-14 STI Hatchback happened as well. One day I made a […Continue Reading…]

Firewall Grommet for 2015 WRX/STI

Upon the release of our PERRIN Electronic Servo Driven Gauges, we stumbled onto a perfect part to make, that would compliment them being installed on a 2015 WRX or STI. Something everyone would need and could afford! In the past, we would have to slit a large rubber boot behind the turbo to fish wires and things through to get from the inside of the car to the engine bay. This was a simple location, but the issue is water […Continue Reading…]

Shifter Stop for 2015 WRX

If you read the entire post from 2015 WRX and STI Exposed article, you would know that the 2015 WRX shifter is one of the things that I feel is terrible about the car. Normally cars that use cable shifters have a very positive feel and provide excellent feedback, but that is not the case for the 2015 WRX. This all started the first day I drove the car for an extended period of time. I first hated how the shifter […Continue Reading…]

Why You Want A PSRS For Your Car

We can make this really simple. If you live on the east coast and/or  own a 2008+Impreza/WRX/STI/Legacy and have more than 40,000 miles on your car, you need this part. Click HERE! OEM Bushings Will Fail… Ok being serious now, there are many reasons to want this part. They fail, they are super soft, negatively effect handling under braking and acceleration, and can add to wandering of your car from ruts in the road. Secondary reason to want this part is the […Continue Reading…]

Exhaust Decibel Testing

New Tests Added May 28th 2014 Customers constantly ask us “How loud is that exhaust?”. We have a really hard time answering this question because how does one describe a sound? How can you compare this to something else? Even doing a video has it’s limitations because of how and where a microphone was placed. We thought we could come up with a way that can accurately give a customer a comparison between different cars, different systems and how they […Continue Reading…]

LED Bulb Kit from PIAA

One of the features I really like about the the 2015 WRX and STI is the LED Headlights standard on the STI,  WRX premium and limited models. The headlights are absolutely amazing at night and are far superior to the older HIDs that came on the STI’s. Subaru did such a good job on this car and its hard to find things that are flawed and or need improving. With that said, there is one thing I found. The fog […Continue Reading…]

PERRIN Tunes 2015 STI w/Cobb Accessport

We last left you with the dyno graphs from the stock 2015 STI and WRX. We showed how the 2015 STI spools slower than the 2008-2014 STI,yet still makes more power by about 20 Wheel HP. We were slightly concerned that Subaru may have really pushed the car with the newest ECU tune and there wouldn’t be much for us to gain from an ECU tune. Cobb offered us an Accessport for the 2015 STI long before they were released […Continue Reading…]

2015 STI and WRX Dyno Time

STI Dyno Session Pretty much every tuner in the world thinks the 2015 STI is the same old boring EJ25 engine and that it’s going to tune the same and make the same power. Well I hate to say it, but they’re all wrong (as was I)! Our initial dynoing of the 2015 STI showed something very interesting. It made more power than all previous STI’s. I’m not talking about a couple WHP, but more like 20 Wheel HP at […Continue Reading…]
