Random Spotlight: The King of STI's

October 29, 2010


We are now back to our daily features and I'm more than skeptical to show this ride to all you Subaru fans.
I met Jeff through the WFC forums and his ride instantly caught my attention, not because of the overall stance but because of the amount of work he put into his ride to make it become a beast!

This beauty is daily driven and puts 513whp/494wtq.
You really can't judge negatively when a car is stanced and puts that much power.


As the title says, Jeff's STI is the King of..actually..the Kings!
The turbonetics GT-K 500 turbo and the Rotora (F & R) BBK kit makes it sound amazing enough, but Jeff is probably one of the only two STI owners who owns a full Voltex body kit.



Almost everything on this car is high-end and finely tuned. I wasn't surprised to find out Jeff won more than 28 trophies and various awards.

Probably from the features I have done until this day, Jeff's ride has the longest modification list. It's not some small parts that can be categorized in the knock-off list, because every single part is quality made and that's how it's suppose to be done when you want to do things right! If we are dedicated and take our time to make a project happen, it will always work out, which we can consider Jeff as a great example.
