Sunworks: Subaru WRX

December 27, 2009

Came across this Cosworth Powered WRX from the Sunworks Crew, out of Washington State.   Built from top to bottom front to back with high quality parts.  Looks good, and performs just as well.  Has alot of unique touches in and out of the car, the engraved throttle body is my Favorite!   I also appreciate the addition of good parts rather than just sticking to jdm everything.  The car was shown at SEMA this year, in las Vegas.  And will be featured in Import Tuner in the coming months soo keep an eye out.


I bought the car new in July of 06′ in college. Used it as a Daily driver for 30k, did all the subtle mods, intake, exhaust, tune.. Ended up swapping bolt on turbos. Car made 330whp, was happy wiht it. Just could not compete on a national show level with the caliber of the cars out there today.  Abruptly my Father passed away in March of 08′. That year I was planning on just attending SEMA 2008 with my father.. I mentioned SEMA, and he lit up!  So when things settled down, in Jan of 09′ I set out to build the ultimate in Show/Street performance for a Subaru. Dedicated the build to my Father, set my Goal to build a SEMA Vehicle. Contacted the correct people, setup appointments for one-off machined parts and the story began.. Car was rotiserrie painted by Mobworks in Socal in Jetstream Blue off the new ZR1 Corvette…. YEs! a Factory GM color 😉 I sourced the highest quality parts for this subaru, while keeping everything in flow. I wanted certain things to “pop” as well, as some things to be very subtle.. Every corner of the car brings something different into view, even “Non” car people enjoy looking at.
