WRX Track Videos

Note the sizes, some of these videos are large files. If you don't have the right codec's try here: http://www.divx.com

Right click and download these to your hard disk, there's a better chance of them running from there.

I'm also converting most of these to Windows Media Format, they are smaller and
are more web friendly!

Subaru WRX tuning information, aftermarket, links

The WRX is amazing, it handles well on a road course (track), and then you can take it on trails where you can get 2 wheels off the ground and still go, and then you can rally in flat open dirt fields or dried up lake beds! Amazing!

Cobb TBE Exhaust for the 2005 Subaru STi

We sourced the Cobb TBE Exhaust with high flow cat.
Installation was very straight forward. Here are some various pictures during the installation of the TBE Exhaust on the 2005 STi.


The TBE exhaust barely unpacked from the shipping boxes.


Wide collector mouth on the downpipe section.

Rims for the 2005 Subaru STI

the 2005 Subaru STi


The offset for the 2005 model year has been redesigned. The pattern is 5 x 114.5, which is different than any up to 2005 wrx, and different than the 2004 STi.



I chose the Rays Foundry G-Games in gunmetal. These are offset 42, and a wide 18 x 8.5" rim.



These rims are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza S03's. At 235 wide, these tires are hard to break free with AWD!

Coilover Suspension Installation - 2005 Subaru WRX STi

Coilover Suspension Installation for the 2005 Subaru STi
On 1/29 we will be installing our Tein Flex Coilover Suspension. The suspension on the 2005 model STi is redesigned, so a new strut or coilover is required. 2004 STi or wrx suspension will not install in the 2005 STi. We will be having an install party, and will be doing an awesome writeup!

Stay tuned for all the details. If you are curious, you might want to check out a previous JIC coilover install that we did on a RX8 when it first came out:

Suspension for the 2005 Subaru STi

The suspension for the 2005 model year has been redesigned. Most 2004 STi springs will work, but you will need specific coilovers or struts for the 2005 model year.


Coilovers that are now available:

I ordered the Flex's with the EDFC Controller and they should be here in a week or so
