To some who are in the automotive culture we try to be unique in our very own way, to perfect with what we have but to also enjoy it. thats exactly what Ryan wanted to do with his STI, didnt want to be kept garaged princess but to make sure to occupy the AWD when it rained and snowed.
Ryan’s says in all honesty building cars is just a hobby, and “one that costs more than it should”. But when you decide to show off to the public what you can do, all costs go right thru the window. It being actually his third Subaru he decided to bring it all together and reform it. it Just being all black & factory like alot of us gearheads like it, it was bout that time. But it wasnt all that easy at first, because the Subaru was not the car he wanted it. Actually wanted a Lexus IS350, but the Subaru was a much a better deal. This when the color changing came about, oh yea ‘Pearl White.
“when you pursuit, you will persuade perfection”
Dont let the outside glossiness fool you, its very equipped in the engine bay. With cooling down turbo, upgrading the block with Mahle forged pistons and fueling up the injectors to 850cc and so much more. And as his future plans is in the wheel set-up wanted to go with 18×10 Work Emotion XD9 wheels.
