We first got chatting to Alan at Ultimate Stance 2016, where we saw his Subaru WRX on display for the first time, we discussed the car and began to quickly come to the conclusion we had to feature it.
After some back and forth we decided on a date and a sick location, RAF Upwood, which provided a really interesting and unique backdrop for the feature.
Don’t be fooled this isn’t just another clean car on air and some nice wheels, Alan has put a lot of time into being different and standing out from the rest. This all wheel drive 2.5ltr EJ257 is pushing out 384BHP. Modifications include K&N typhoon air filter and induction kit in red, full Samco hose kit in red, large alloy polished Japspeed radiator, Full miltek 3” decat exhaust system with a big bore down pipe and four 4”exhaust tips. The car has been remapped using Ecutek software with launch control, flat foot shifting and blip control added.
For exterior styling Alan spared no expenses adding HT Autos front splitter, side skirt extensions, rear bumper lips, rear diffuser and exhaust lips, rolled arches, rally style STI mud flaps, hydro dipped front grill surround, side garnishes and boot lip all in carbon fibre to name just a few. And of course not to forget custom built front lights sprayed black with colour changing projectors and red devil rings.
It has STi Recaro seats, D1 spec carbon hand brake and gear knob plus 3x 60mm Defi gauges (boost, oil temp and oil pressure). Hydrodipped carbon surrounds, also the rear seats have been covered in suede with a Subaru peace sign.
A one off award winning pioneer sound system was also added. It contains of 3 amps, 2 x 10” subs, 4 x 17cm door speakers with custom made alcantara surrounds plus A pillars which hold the 2x 28mm tweeters (all from pioneers PRS range) and the avic-f77DAB double din head unit.
Boot build was made by Bloomz car audio which houses the 4 gallon stainless steel seamless tank, dual 444c compressors and the V2 management system supplied by Havair.
Finally to set it all off we supplied Alan with a bespoke set of anodised bronze 3SDM Forged | 3.60 | FX3’s. 18” 9.5J all round wrapped in 225/40 Pirreli P Zero’s, giving a subtle stretch for perfect lip to arch fitment.
Coming in to 2017 Alan has a few more additions to add including a fully carbon bonnet, a smoothed front end and a new dump valve set up. He is planning to hit as many shows as possible not just in the UK but parts of Europe as well.
