AJW your one stop shop!

AJW Performance has been present for well over 7 yearshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com entering the automotive industry when the industry was flourishing. AJW provides all the top brand products for your performance needs. AJW has learned from the best and evolved into a MA and NH phenomenon. AJW started as a small internet business. Opening the first Ajw shop back in 2009 in Fairhaven. MAhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com out growing that facility in less than a year and moving to a larger building in Warehamhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com MA. AJW resided in Wareham for a little over a yearhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com before things really started to thrivehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and the doors of infinite opportunities opened again.

AJW was located near Factory five racinghttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and started to build a relationship. Early into the relationshiphttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com factory five was working on a Subaru platform kit carhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com AJW was one of the first to be questioned about power and builds. Factory five knew that AJW was knowledgeable in the Subaru market. AJW Performance was very excited about this project and wanted to do anything they could to help.. fast forward to present dayhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com AJW is located about 2.5 hours north of Factory Five in Bowhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com NH. AJW moved to NH about a year agohttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com yet again growing out of the space they were currently in. NH is the new home of AJW and their 818 kit car.

AJW performance is now the proud owner of an 818. They have been preparing for the arrival of this car for monthshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and it is now a reality. Working on this car steadilyhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com there have been a few bumps in the road here and therehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com nothing AJW could not conquer. The car is officially rollinghttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com but has a lot more work to be performed before it will be spotted on the curvy streets of NHhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com cruising around the lake.

The final chapter of Andrew’s 04 FXT Build

 

We have reached the final chapter for the 04 XT build. You will find out why in the next blog I do (Andrew). The VF39 and tune did wonders for the car. Installation was smooth and we found a decent amount of oil in the old turbohttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com re assuring our diagnosis that the car was eating oil due to the turbo being bad.

The VF39 was installedhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com the oil changedhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and from there it was a shoot down to see Jay Perryhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com who was our in house tuner and engine builder when we had a location down in Wareham Mass. Jay does wonders with Subaru; whether it be a humble street car like my Forester or a ¼ mile beast like his 600+ WHP STi. Jay was happy to tune the red beasthttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and it left his place more of a sleeper than ever before. The VF39 is the perfect application for anyone on the fence about a turbo upgradehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com or someone who simply wants to stay conservative with their build. I mean heyhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com its OEM in the STi!

 

 

 

 

 

Above is an image of the FXT when I first got ithttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com pre coilover ride height.

 

The cool thing about the Forester XT is for this upgrade you do not need to upgrade your fuel injectors; you can simply leave them alone. A larger top mount intercooler and a fuel pump are suggested. We prefer the DW fuel pumphttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and a OEM STi top mount intercooler (Or AMR). This keeps things more affordable from a labor perspective and parts costs. Don’t forget about a downpipe toohttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com COBB is a great high quality option.

Overall the Forester build is cost effectivehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com efficient and affordable. Great daily driver/ commuter to and from work every dayhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com fun on exit ramps ( ISC coilovers)https://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and the ultimate sleeper. As I have said in prior blogshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com I have owned every modern day Subaru there is (except Baja) and this car is probably my favorite thus far!

 

 

 

 

 

Slammed on ISC N1 Basics

 

If you are seeking guidance in your buildhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com or need anything at all let us know and we would be happy to assist you. Everyone that works here drives a turbocharged Subaruhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com it is a mandatory part of working at AJW Performance!

 

Thankshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com

Andrew’s Forester XT

After selling my legacy GT  about a year ago things were just not the same without a Subaru. The RSTI still wasn’t finishedhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com the Crawford Time Attack car can not drive on the streethttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and daily driving the AJW Performance tow rig gets to be a little to much from time to time (F450 King Ranch Dually).

Back in August of 2012 a forum member on NES was selling his 2004 Forester XT. It was cleanhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com lightly and correctly moddedhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and local enough to get my hands on it. Within a day of posting it for sale several others were willing to fly in from around the country to purchase it off this gentlemen that had it available. Findings these can be difficulthttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com especially in a manual.

With the exception of swapping out the GMS catback for a COBB catback and Accessport right away I really did not do anything to the vehicle until recently. The FXT was ready for some maintenance; a leaking radiator was the top of the list. A Mishimoto radiator was installed this January. Part of working at a performance shop is you do not know when to stophttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and modding is an addiction!

The FXT also got a COBB intake that eveninghttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and of course; some ISC N1 Coilovers. The coilover of choice was a street sport basichttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com so no front camber plates since they are not needed for my application. Doing all of these modifications got me excited again about modifying cars and playing with Subarus. When “playing with Subarus” becomes your job it is easy to forget why you started making it your livelyhood in the first placehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com so it was a nice refresher!

While we were doing these installs we also fixed a exhaust leak between the downpipe and the catback (COBB Tuning catted downpipehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com COBB Tuning catback). While we were there we noticed some oil in the exhaust. Although we never noticed it smoking or anythinghttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com it was a sure sign that the turbo is on its way out.

The FXT already had a walbro 255https://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com STi TMIChttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and full turboback exhaust. It was impossible to think that upgrading the turbo would not be a good idea. What did I choose for a budget minded conservative stage 3 setup for my 170https://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com000 mile FXT? A VF39. The VF39 is great for a few reasons; it is smallhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com cost effectivehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com yields good results and most importantly can be run on the factory injectors on a FXT. Stay tuned for a blog on this installhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com turbo is going to go in soon!

What is the best first mod for a wrx?

This is a very common and open ended questionhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com which is fact has many answers.What your needs are is where you should starthttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and based off of that make an educated decision. Powerhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com Suspensionhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com Brakes and visuals all have important roles in the world of modding your Subaru WRX.

Many people like to go for power right off the bathttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com this is common and for obvious reasonshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com fast is fun! The WRX is very responsive to power related modificationshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com especially some of the first ones.

Power:

Downpipe + Tune combo AKA Stage 2= great success

This can be done with a catted or catless 3 inch downpipe paired with an open source tunehttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com or a COBB Accessport. We offer many brands of downpipeshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com from Invidiahttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com Perrinhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com FMShttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com COBB + more.

http://ajwperformanceproducts.com/store/#!/~/product/id=3882112

Suspension:

Swaybars generally make the largest difference (with the exception of coilovers).

We suggest whiteline swaybars and ISC coilovers.

http://ajwperformanceproducts.com/store/#!/~/product/id=11686121

Brakes:

Slotted rotors and upgraded pads make a huge difference with the WRX brake setup. Add another 100.00 and get yourself some Goodridge stainless brake lines for a firm pedal feel too!
