Nicholas M's 2005 Impreza WRX

Member #36054 :: Car Show Entry

Car Description:
This WRX was built by my good friends at AQ motorsports, roughly 11 years ago and still running strong. Tuned by CHURCHES tuning in Wilmington, roughly 11 years ago as well. Tune was refreshed about 2 months ago to run the delicious tuning flex fuel kit. Motor consists of a 2.2 L stroked EJ 205 with forged internals, UEL tomei headers and killer B’s oil pick up, oil baffle and oil pan. Stock TD05 rebuilt turbo to match the quality of the motor. HKS turbo back exhaust. 1050 injectors, 340 AEM fuel pump and Delicious tuning flex fuel kit. ISC coilovers with front and rear strut tower bars. Cobb short shifter with a cobb shift knob. All solid shifter bushings. A H brace to send that stress the car goes under to the shocks. Rear diff solid mounts. Aluminum one piece drive shaft, with heavy duty axels. Previous owner really did a good job of building an awesome weekend warrior. When the car came into my possession early 2022 I had the goal of making the car a perfect daily driver that can hit the track on the weekends. I felt like I really did hit it out of the ball park and achieved my goal. I installed 1050 injectors, 340 AEM fuel pump and delicious tuning flex fuel kit to run e85. Recaro pole position bucket seat to keep me tucked and planted at the track. 08 sti front brembos that were rebuilt, powder coated and ceramic coated to match that beautiful aspen white. DBA series 4000 slotted rotors with hawk performance plus track pads. Steel braided brake lines filled with motul racing brake fluid. Speedmasterlee’s old aspen white sti trunk and wing for some downforce. Cusco replica Lip because finding a real one is not happening. Wrx fog light bezels without the fog lights to act like brake ducts to cool down the brakes and make the front end look 10x more aggressive. Rare hyper blue volk ce28’s 5x100 17x9+35 wrapped in 245/40/17 falken azenis rt660s. PB lap time is 1:30 at streets of willow. I will be going to big willow before subiefest so hopefully I can get a good pb on that track! I really enjoy the reliability in my Subaru, i can drive it all day long as long as I do the maintenance on it I know for a fact it won’t leave me stranded. But honestly the best feeling is beating on the car at the track and driving home with the ac on full blast. Thank you for your consideration, I hope to hear back from you guys. Thank you have a wonderful day.
