    Default Marshall's wrx and ruckus

    Finally got a number so I figured I would make a build thread. I'm stealing this from my s|w thread, but will probably be more active on here

    My car is a money pit and my ruckus is too.


    Bought my car in the summer of 2010 and it already had a decent amount of stuff done to it, but I had to go through and fix a bunch of stuff too.
    BRO

    Then I started billowing smoke out of my exhaust because of this

    blown ring lands are cool.
    I ended up rebuilding it with wiseco internals, a new clutch, and timing belt and some other maintenance stuff while it was all apart.


    supertones and a bike rack, typical

    More of the nasioc approved stance



    I decided the TE's had to go, they were a tiny 17x7.5 +48 with a 225/45
    So like every other wrx owner ever, I bought XD9's

    Fitment was absolutely terrible because I had no idea what I was doing and bought 235/40's for them


    Bought a used sti v2 lip

    no ragrets on running it red for a couple weeks

    It'll get better, I promise, I'm going to photo dump all these old pictures first though

    my gf liked my car so much she bought a wagon







    I forgot to mention that right before I got the works, I bought 1000cc injectors and got a tune for E85. The little vf23 turbo is pushing 22lbs and from the open source tune I'm sitting at around 310whp, not too bad for a jdm stock turbo on a 2.0

    The tein flex coils I had on there were old and the rears were blown. Plus I wanted to actually go lower so I picked up some BC racing extreme low's 16k front 14k rear



    Tucking the wire harness up further into the fender

    much happier with this but I still had balloon tires on haha


    I got tired of rubbing nonstop so I got some new 225/35 tires and I must say, I'll probably never again have a 40 series tire on an 18" wheel. There was so much room for activities in the fenders now!


    I only ended up running the smaller tires for like a month before I sold that setup

    and spent 5 months like this, thanks cz :mad

    After a pretty bad experience with cz wheels, which I wouldn't recommend to anyone, I finally got my wheels.
    test fit pictures of course


    after adapters they're 18x9.5 +4
    I got some tires mounted and then had more problems with one not holding air. Ended up being the silicon seal which cz told me that they could either have me ship it to them to fix, or he would send me a tube of silicon. I didn't want to wait another month for him to actually do something so I just went and bought a tube self and resealed it. While it was still on the stock wheels I also installed some JDM black chrome projectors <3


    I needed to shave my studs for the adapters to allow the wheels to sit right so I did that the next day


    Then I zip tied my old lip back together because the new bumper I ordered is still on back order until now the middle of june. I ordered it back in february -__-


    That pretty much brings it up to date.
    Today I'm going to be putting on 5" springs and shorter cartridges in the front to go a little lower and not have the coil hit the cv boot.

    As for the ruckus, I got it a little over a year ago

    I didn't take a lot of pictures of the progress, but it was pretty much like any other ruckus



    I scraped through the fuel pump mount so I raised the gas tank and relocated the pump a bit higher.




    Then I decided it would be a good idea to wire tuck and paint everything over the winter

    Now with color and the rear frame tucked!





    I'm still waiting on an extended throttle cable and a seat cover to get everything finally finished up, but I've been super happy with the progression so far.

    I also got all the rest of the parts for my ruckus and got it together. It was good to ride after like 8 months

    Finally Finished

    And got a full tank of e85 after leaving the tire shop

    really dig the wheels. Not too over the top but subtle in their own right; everything flows so well.Awesome work!
