It has been a while since I have updated this site so my apologies to anyone who actually keeps up with this. It has been a steady flow of updates for Steph’s Forester since the new year but unfortunately no actual pics of the installs just pics of the finished product.

For Christmas she received her STi lip. They come standard on the 08 Sports models but not on the 07s and that was one thing that Steph really wanted ever since she laid her eyes on it. The install for the lip wasn’t that bad at all but having friends with a lift really made it super freakin easy. There was modification of one tiny little thing on the underside that took all of 2 seconds. Other than that, taking all the freaking clips out that were needed was the hardest part. I think it added a lot to the front end of the car and gave it just a touch of aggressivness.

Next up on the mod list was a SPT Shorty Air Intake. This was actually a spur of the moment purchase for her. I had been having some health issues and I woke Steph up at 2 in the morning for three weekends in a row to take me to the ER. Well I have never really been the flowers kinda guy so as a thank you I got her the Intake. I was at Perry Subaru picking up some parts for my car and was talking to Brad the parts guy (awesome guy) if they had any in stock. They did and he gave me the Subaru Club hook up and I gave the Intake to Steph as a “thank you” for just being there. The actual quality of the parts are insanely good and just looks like a pretty piece. Once it was on for about a week we had it dynoed. It came in at 198.9 hp/239.6 ftlbs tq which is a decent gain for just an intake. This really makes me want to get some EM for the car even more but that will have to wait.


Last but not least is Steph’s Valentines gift. It wasn’t quite roses but they were red. Some sweet Hella Horns! This is another thing that she has been wanting for a long ass time. The install for this didn’t seem that hard but then again I really didn’t do much of it. I pretty much removed 8 clips and helped take the WHOLE bumper skin off. I had a couple friends, Noah and Marc, who are handy with electronics do the wiring for me. They kinda took on the whole little project and it was done in about an hour and a half after starting. There was a video game and beer break in there somewhere as well. They wired in the horns and kept them in line with the stock horns (which were already loud) and mounted them in the center of the grill. Put the bumper skin back on and I think they look and sound great. Steph was pleased and got out of the car grinning ear to ear after she hit the horn. Lets just say you don’t want to be in front when she honks now.
