Widebody Bugeye Race Car Build - Part 1 - JDM EJ207

So, we’re like you.  We like cars.  We like project cars.  We also happen to like Subarus.  So, when we happened upon the opportunity to buy an ex-road-race Subaru race car project, we couldn’t resist.  Fully gutted and caged, lexan windows, wide-body – oh yeah.  We had to have it.  

That’s not to say it didn’t need….a little bit of work though...

MX5 Suspension Upgrade - Lowering Springs and Swaybars on a 2020 Club

A client of ours had just picked up this really nice 2020 Mazda Miata MX5 Club - complete with upgraded V2 Bilstein shocks, Recaro seats, and an LSD out back.  These are very nice cars and perform well right from the factory but he wanted more.....So he researched upgrades that would compliment the factory suspension, and he decided on a full set of Progress Technology Springs and Swaybars. He then he contacted us to get these parts installed, so we got to work!

Super Low-Mile GD WRX - Smart Upgrades & Maintenance

We had this really nice 2006 WRX TR come into the shop for some upgrades.  What makes this particular WRX special? Well it only has 17,000 miles on the clock – yeah, 17,000 miles total - Holy moly.

The car was pretty much bone stock, but the owner was ready for some more oomph, so we went over our recommendations with him, including some top-shelf upgrades, and maintenance items that should be considered.  We got a game plan together and we got to work!

2019 STI - How It Should Come from the Factory

The owner of this beautiful 2019 Subaru WRX STI brought the car to us bone stock and asked for more power.  Nothing crazy, as he uses it daily and didn’t want it to be “too loud or flashy”.  Seeing as this was his first Subaru, we walked the owner through the modifications we suggested and why they would be a good start.  The goal was to make the car feel like it should have been setup from the factory - better but not compromised -  He agreed and we got started on the project!
