Jo's Wagon intro and build!!

Alright! My name is Mark and this is my Wagon, We've had the car since 2012 and this was my Wife's previous car and now it mine to have fun with it! I've been a very long time lurker ever since I had my 6th gen accord sedan, and I was mostly in v6performance.net. I move on for a while trading my car accord for a 2011 Subaru wrx and then 2012 STi a year later. Anyways here is the Wagon and the list of mods going next next

All these will be installed next week

Exterior

-Factory lip and side skirts

-Enkei Raijin 18x8.5 38 offset on 245/40

Suspension

-Tein SA coilovers

-Spec -D rear camber arms

Your wagon looks great. I picked one up on Saturday, and it's been smiles ever since. The very first picture you posted, the front bumper looks like it has some sort of an add-on. Is your bumper stock?

Nice! Can't wait to see how the car looks lowered on the TEINs with you 245/40R18 setup . Keep up the great work.

Thanks guys, I'm planning to add a CT supercharger but I know there is no reflash available for the wagons but I will try to contact CT and ask them what are my options. Also I plan to keep it how it stands for now until I find out what to do about supercharging

KTuner works on the wagon I believe. There's a stage 2 supercharged wagon in the CU2 SQUAD facebook group.

How would you rate your coilovers, and are the rear camber arms necessary for a perfect alignment? I am currently in the market for coilovers and it's between STs and Teins. Are yours dampening adjustable and if so, what setting are they on? Is there room to raise the front and rear more? Or is that max height? Sorry for all the questions, but I kept them all simple.
Great beautiful wagon! I am too planning on boosting mine. It's needs just a little bit more torque.

Sup sheefo2k, I would give the tein coilovers 10 overall for my needs because it's comfortable and never had any complaints while using the teins and always my first choice when choosing a brand, just because I've had Tein's on all my cars and lasted for many years. Also I tried few brands like BC and Megans and never getting those again. Yes, you will definitely need a camber arms if you want your camber back to spec which I'm trying to achieve. And the dampening is set close to the middle which is 7 clicks back for the hardest setting. I also left the ride height how the manual wanted you to set it which is about 1.75 inch all around and also there is a little more room to raise it up prob another inch. And thanks

Thanks for the thorough review. I read from several people that TEINS Street Advance at the highest setting are low (3/4in gap between lower fender and upper tire). Your current height looks great, do you have any more side pictures? or close ups of the gap? I am starting to feel more comfortable with TEINS especially if you can elaborate on how much more height left to raise it.

That is one great looking wagon! I've been enjoying my 2012 wagon for a year and a half.....kept my unicorn stock, and it definitely punches above its weight for refined utility.

I am personally a big fan of the rails (especially with side bars). Either way, your car is beautiful!! Any update on the ride, how are the Teins holding up?

Thanks man appreciate it! I remove rails because I looks cleaner without it and the Teins are still pretty awesome, no issues, and rides very good. I will post some update soon, since I just got my rear JDM bumper from heeltoe (Marcus D) a month ago, and now I'm saving for CT supercharger, so in a few month I will post another update with the supercharger on.

I like his cars side view with no rails.

But when you look from back, looks like something is missing or its not right without rails (my opinion)

I think it looks great without the roof rails. Can't wait to see updated photos with the JDM bumper.

Sup guys, thanks for the positive comments!, its been a long time but i’ve been at CU2 squad in Facebook, but so far my rear JDM bumper came in haven’t installed it because we are in the process of moving in our new house and don’t have a garage to work on. Also I recently purchased CT supercharger from Heelteo and still waiting for it to arrive. I’m planning to go stage2 off the bat and still putting things together, I still need to get an injectors, fuel pump, aftercooler, smaller pulley for the supercharger and greddy CBE. I already have a header/ downpipe. I will update my built once every is in.

I received an email notification about this thread, I had to come check it out right away. I am extremely jealous of your CT blower, that's on my list for my wagon too, Please, document and take pictures of the install. Good luck man. Exciting!!
