It seems like both a long time and a short time. Barely coming up on 1 year. The Vivid Racing Project WRX II did what it was suppose to do, be better then the original Vivid WRX I, get magazine coverage, and set a standard for others to copy. Project WRX II was both a

If I had music to play while you were reading this it would be something to the effect of Rick Springfields Jesse’s Girl or Queen’s We are the Champion. The Perrin boys would be in the background working on the car and I would be cracking a cold beer. Oh wait, that is to much

Once again I found myself drinking and modding. This is the unsafe, hazardous habit of grabbing parts off the shelf and installing them on your car while drinking. Be careful! For some time now, we have had this Kaminari 2 piece carbon splitter on the shelf. Thinking it would only work on the Kaminari lip,

Stage 21 – HKS Turbo Kit – Go Big or Go Home. - 1,159 views

With so many choices available for turbo upgrades we sat down and thought what would be the best for Vivid Racing. Should we put a VF30 on the car, PE1820, AVO450, get a STI RA motor? Well knowing that our cars are built for all around performance, the idea of creating a car with 300

Now the only way to get more fuel to those injectors and fuel rails faster is with upgrading your fuel pump. There are many available, but only one is a direct plug in for your WRX. The Walbro GSS342 flows 255 liters per hour and requires NO cutting, wiring, or modification. As you can see,

Part of our next upgrade is the HKS turbo kit. This turbo kit includes its own uppipe and downpipe. Here we are going to install the GT Spec header with the uppipe from the turbo kit. Your question will probably be why the GT Spec header? With many headers on the market, the GT Spec

Stage – 18 – Perrin Fuel Rails – Safe and Efficient. - 1,729 views

Fuel rails are a overlooked but extremely important add on for your fuel system. The stock rails do not distribute fuel equally and cylinder 3 tends to lean out. As you up the boost and require more fuel, that cylinder is working harder to pump the juice. To much pumping and your motor blows up

Stage 17 – Suspension Upgrade – Sways and Arm Bar. - 944 views

Handling of our Project WRX has been significantly enhanced by the Tein coilovers and front/rear strut bars. But an important part of improving cornering is done by sway bars and adding rigidity to the under chassis. We started off by adding a JIC lower arm brace to the car. This arm brace connects the lower

Stage 16 – STI Mounts – Pitch Stop. - 855 views

The stock engine mounts and transmission mounts are satisfactory for daily driving. One mount people generally overlook is the Pitch Stop Mount. The Pitch mount is located under the stock intercooler and looks like a dog bone. That mount connects from the firewall to the tranny case. Vivid Racing knows that as you increase power,

Stage 15 – PWR Radiator – Cooling her down. - 915 views

Vivid Racing in its ever lasting quest to have the best and most efficient car has undoubtedly upgraded one of the most important and sometimes overlooked components. The Radiator. The stock radiator is very efficient. But we all know cooling equals power. The cooler the car runs the more power we see out of it.

Stage 14 – Starter Switch – Zerosports. - 774 views

Every car is started with a key. However, Vivid Racing is always different and we are using the Zerosports push button starter switch. What is the benefit of this switch? Nothing! But it is cool like the S2000 to put your key in and push the button to start the car! What is really nice
