Subaru WRX Gets A Major Overhaul!

Here at Velocity Factor we’re always eager to work with, and make our customer’s cars turn out exactly as they should be; perfect! One of our customers recently brought us his new 2016 Subaru WRX to get the Velocity Factor treatment. He intentionally purchased a WRX vs. STi with the purpose of utilizing the price savings to modify the car in accordance with his personal taste and individuality. The list of modifications he wanted was extensive and we here at Velocity Factor were more than happy to turn his wishes into reality! Of course, the first thing to address was more power, and we were pleased to recommend COBB Tuning of which Velocity Factor has an extensive history. It didn’t take long to set this vehicle up with a full COBB Tuning Stage 2+ Big SF Power Package. This setup includes a COBB AccessPort, COBB Big SF Cold Air Intake, COBB resonated J-Pipe (down-pipe), and COBB Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust system. With the power gains addressed, the next steps were to improve braking, grip, and handling alike. We believe in exponential builds here at Velocity Factor; meaning if you’re going to increase the power, then handling and braking should be equally addressed for a perfectly balanced setup! To enhance grip we put our customer into a set of new WedSport SA-10R wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires. Not only was this setup wider than stock, the enhanced grip from the Michelin tires with their aggressive and sticky compound certainly fit the bill! For braking, we enhanced the stock system with a set of StopTech PowerSlot rotors at all four corners, added StopTech stainless-steel braided brake lines, and flushed the OEM brake fluid which we replaced with Motul RBF600 Racing Brake Fluid. Lastly, we added a set of Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads all around. To say the results were vastly different would be a huge understatement and the enhanced pedal feel along with the added bite was exactly what this WRX needed! We finished his beautiful ride with a set of H&R Sport Lowering Springs which provided a lower center of gravity, resulting in a more substantial contact patch for the tires along with giving this WRX a more aggressive stance. The customer was ecstatic and we were pleased to meet all his needs with the quality and expertise Velocity Factor is renowned for!
