Installing STi Splitters + V-Limited Lip on 2004 WRX Wagon
I have always viewed my suby wagon to be somewhat of an ugly duckling.
Problem is, there are very few products intended for the WRX Wagon, which
has clear exterior differences from the WRX sedan. Thanks to the good
folks at NASIOC (North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club), I became aware
that the STi Splitters and the V-Limited Lip can be installed with minimal
modifications on both WRX sedans AND wagons--hence this video. I am very,
very pleased with the results!
* Upper edge bumper slits - some have chosen not to make them and instead,
cut off the splitter top tabs and use 3M heavy duty double-sided tape.
IMHO, using the tabs is much more secure. After I cut slits with the
dremel, I used a small drill bit to clean it of jaggies (not shown).
* Trimming Leading Edge - you may not need to do this on the WRX sedan.
* Attachment points - there are some holes in the stock bumper that line
up and can be used--for the rest, you must drill your own holes. Both
splitters and lip came with installation hardware.
* Lip install - the wagon is not as wide as the sedan, but if you get a
polyurethane V-Limited lip, you can bend the sides in without problem. My
lip never quite extended all the way to the back of the splitters--about an
1" gap (not terribly noticeable).

And as always, thanks for watching!

500whp WRX Wagon w/ dogbox.
This car at the time was one of the highest whp EJ205's in the country. It
made just under 500whp all Boost on
a stock location turbo. These pulls are
literally the first time driving the car hard after the build. Took awhile
to get used to the dogbox and launching the car.
