Hello everyone!

 

AJW Performance will be opening its doors next Sunday April 28th from 11am until 3pm for a day of fun with Granite State Subaru Meets. Were expecting 100+ Cars here for the day. Come on down and meet some new people who love cars! Well be sure to add some AJW flair with some nice dealshttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com games and fun. Were hoping for a brighthttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com warmhttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com sun shiny day to be able to soak up some rays! If not we have a HUGE 3500 square foot facility to keep dry.

New ISC Wheel adapters are in stock ready for purchase!

Earlier this week we got in a nice shipment of ISC Suspensions wheel adapters. These wheel adapters are for 5×100 to 5×114.3http://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com making STi fitment wheels available for the WRX owners out there. These adapters are available in a 15mm or 25mm size. They are a full hub centric adapter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AJW Performance 2.5RSTi

Something rarely talked about on these blogs (even though it has its own) is our RSTi. The perfect combination of car. A 1998 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS meets 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Everything from the 04 STi has been swapped into the little RS. Rear subframehttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com steering rackhttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com spindleshttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com dashhttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com consolehttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com brakeshttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com and modified STi coilovers. While this has been a 2+ year process the goal is to get it done when we can and make sure its done as close to perfection as possible.

 

AJW Site Maintenance

Hello all!

Just wanted to give our customers a heads up that during the next few weeks we will be doing a full site revamp. We figured there would be no better way to start the new year than to get our site up to date with the best productshttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com pricing and packages to help our customers maximize their hard earned money.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some things we will be addressing:

Chris stops by for some love on his OBXT

As far as under the radar daily drivers gohttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com the Subaru Outback XT is it. Spacioushttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com comfortablehttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com leather interior with a kick under the hood is the best way to describe this car. No cops going to pull over this turbo charged station wagon because they’ll just think its some old lady with a lead foot. Little do they know that this car has something special to it!

Wicked Big Meet – The big cheddah!

June 10th 2012 marked the 6th Wicked Big Meet that AJW Performance has attended and it has yet to fail as one of the best events of the year. Tons of great peoplehttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com tons of awesome cars and lots of errhmmm safe driving. The night before we were busy loading up cars and parts into trailers and detailing our cars to make sure they were show worthy.

We left Sunday Morning at 630 sharp from Fairhaven with 5 Subaru’s and 2 trucks loaded with peoplehttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com parts and cars to set up and display for the masses. It was already a beautiful morning and our excitement level was high!

Tim’s Bug Eye Build

The saga continues…

Sometime in March I was heading north for a weekend of skiing. Just south of Concord NH the WRX started acting funny. I immediately pulled over and called Triple A. The bugeye was sent back to the shop and I continued on.

Plans were devised and we went forward. The cars back up and running now!

Mod list:

2011 STi Shortblock

OEM bearings

Nitraded crank

STi Forged rods

Wiseco Forged pistons (Standard size)

ARP Headstuds

Killer B Oil Pickup

Killer B oil Baffle

The AJW Performance Rally Pig

Something I feel we just dont talk about enough. The AJW Performance Rally Pig partnered with owner and driver Neil Liddle is a force to be reckoned with. This pig came to us last summer (2011) for support in his endeavors in the rally game. When Neil first came to us we sat down and talked about his plans for the seasonhttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com schedule of events and plans for the car. It was pretty cut and dry. Store the car safely when he was not racing ithttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com take care of full race prep and install/rebuild anything that needed to be done. Our first action was to install an STi 6 speed transmissionhttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com DCCD controller and STi steering column. He took the car backhttp://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com gave it hell at a rally and realized the cooling system was not keeping up. To address this we wired in a switch to be able to switch the both fans on (or one at a time) to keep the car cool between heats.
