What Events have you competed in?

No events yet. The car is under the knife- trying for late summer.

+ + +

What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

I am in the process of getting a fully built short block and backing it up with a 08 STi 6spd swap to dial the car in with my self-modded HTA68 10CM on meth for around 390whp.

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

I have personally built this car. It has the best of both worlds, 350-390 whp and full suspension mods. Also, the exterior is modded to be pleasing to the eye with a one off 2011 STi spoiler and the carbon fiber trunk, 1 of 8 in the entire world. I enjoy the car every chance I get to take it out and drive it as it was meant to be driven. My two children, who yell for me to bring on the boost, always get what they ask for.

Any Shout Outs?

Thanks to my wife Amanda and children Kiara and Aiden for dealing with all the late nights and the help with the car. To my crew at 3gwrx, Jarad at RoyalTuned for the 1 off custom Carbon fiber STi spoiler and Vim at Treble Racing!

What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

The show aspect is completed, next will be a custom turbo kit this winter.

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

Right now it’s all show. I was in the right place at the right time and got a sponsor for Performance World by Graphiti, and will be working on a custom turbo kit to make the car as fast as it looks over the winter.
