Just picked up an MY13 STI Spec R. It is low k's, 100% stock, and mechanically A1! First thing was a lap down some windy back roads on the Northern Beaches of Sydney :D The quick rack and Brembos are amazing!

I'll likely keep it stock for a few months but first mod will be some roof racks for the surf and snowboards. Once I save up I'll look at a quiet TBE, 3-port BCS, CAI, silicon intake, and tune. Hoping to make about 210-220kw atw. And if the motor blows, I already have the driveshaft and brembos for a high power build :P

Nice I had the same car except on white.

My advise leave it stock the difference between stock and 210kw wasn't that noticeable.

Very nice sporty subie indeed.

Cars are always a compromise somewhere. Sti should satisfy the performance needs or at least for a fair while.

Hope it can perform daily/ load carrying duties well enough for you too.

Tbh man my foz running 207kw felt quite a bit quicker and more responsive so I probably will be keen to get some mods sorted. I'll be keeping the stocks parts to put it back together if I decided to sell in the future.

Wit roof racks it should be sweet! The only problem is me being precious about the car

It would be Your foz is lighter then your STI.

TBH i wouldn't buy another G3 wrx or sti they feel heavy and they dont feel like they handle as nice as the 03-07 model thats for sure.

They are more comfortable but that comfort comes at a price.

....or the tune adjusted the throttle mapping to make the SG more responsive. That and the exhaust (dump pipe etc) probably helped.
