Like anyone with a custom car, Eli was looking for ways to make his Subaru stand out from the crowd. “Air Lift Performance was unheard of when I bought the kit. I was one of the first Subarus in my area that I knew of to run on air. Now it seems 1 in 10 Subaru’s in the show scene are bagged. It is growing for sure.”

“I initially switched to air to have the convenience of going low when I wanted, and then raising up when I needed to, or when I was driving a bit more spirited. What I actually liked the most about being on air was how quickly I could adjust the ride from firm to softer for a more comfortable ride. In literally seconds, I could choose between a super comfortable ride and a track-ready firmness.” says Eli of his now parted out STi.

To show this build was not just a pretty face, a set of authentic Bride Gias front and rear seats with Corbeau harnesses surrounded by a custom roll cage fill the interior and add a bit of safety to this beastly Subaru. With the amount of performance goodies underhood, safety equipment is a welcomed sight!

With a mod list a mile long this Subaru is more than a just a fully built show car. This project was a labor of love being built by Eli himself at home in his own garage. Everything from metal work to paint was done without the help of a huge crew or big fancy shop.

Even though this car has been parted out and sold to make room for Eli’s new project, we believe it is a perfect representation of how to live your #LifeOnAir
