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 productshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com pricing and packages to help our customers maximize their hard earned money.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some things we will be addressing:

Pricing. Making sure all product pricing is accurate and up to date with manufacturers specifications. We will still offer price matching by email and phone calls. Some items have been listed at a price tag of 0.00. Obviously this is a false representation. Alsohttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com combo packages will be added to save you time and money. The combo deals will be properly packaged performance upgrades with the best parts only!

Product pictures. We realized some pictures seem to have been swapped with other products. This makes it hard to shop because you dont know exactly what youre getting. The description says Spec clutch but the picture is of a carbon fiber hood. Yeahttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com I would be confused to.

Organization. You’re shopping for your 2002-07 WRX but you keep getting product listings for a 350z or a Ford F350. We will change that to make sure shopping our site is easyhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com not difficult. We will work on separating products so their in the correct category and vehicle make and model.

New/Discontinued products. For starters we have some new product lineshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com new products from existing companies and some updates for other products to add to. This will help keep you current with the best products in the business! We also realize that some product lines listed on our site have been discontinuedhttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com are no longer available in the UShttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com or we no longer sell that brand for one reason or the other.

Please bare with us as we work through this. If you have any other suggestionshttps://ajwperformanceproductsblog.com ideas or comments please post them here and we will make it a point to address them!

Thank you for your continued support

AJW Performance

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!
