Project 15K, final test & tune 300WHP

Project 15K started life as a $10K 2002 WRX we purchased to show people how you can get great power from the older 2.0L cars.  The project car was purchased with a lot of miles, but also a few mods already done.  The Blaze yellow WRX had a catback exhaust, catless downpipe, huge diameter uppipe (huge is not a good thing) Version 1 AccessPORT, lowering springs and not to mention a sweet grounding system using  8 gauge near solid core […Continue Reading…]

2008 EVO X-POSED

When we got our 08 STI, we went over the whole car and pointed out all the differences, and made comments about the changes.  Now that our EVO is in our hands, it gets a turn under the microscope.  PERRIN as a company was a little unsure of what to do about the EVO old and new.  There isn€™t many of them compared to STI€™s and the customer base is very different that the Subaru guys.  There were already some […Continue Reading…]

Project 15K gets rolling...

Selection Process and Cleaning Not too long ago we where talking about the older WRX’s and how inexpensive they are getting in the used car market. So after some discussions we thought it would be fun to find a good example and build it on a budget (about $15k including the car). What we expect in this project is a car that will be reliable and pass all emission testing. On top of that it has to be FUN not so […Continue Reading…]
