This is Northwest Rally Sports’ first Client Spotlight! The purpose of these are to showcase some rather impressive, aesthetic, and head turning builds that we see come through the shop. With that being said, I would like to introduce Shiloh’s 2004 WRX!
At first glance, the aesthetics from this WRX are dark, clean, and in my opinion, tasteful. Additionally, those headlights are very unique and pair well with the Bug-Eye; quite aggressive. I asked Shiloh to tell me exactly what he’s done regarding body components and where he got those headlights. Here is what he said:
“I have changed the rear bumper to an ’05-’07 STi. Additionally, I have chosen the STi v7 grill, Siebon’s carbon trunk, hood and front lip, carbon rear window spoiler, and RPG’s carbon fog light covers and sidemarker accents. The sideskirts are from an STi with Chargespeed’s sideskirt unders & Rally Armor mud flaps. In the engine bay, you’ll find a carbon intake, radiator and alternator covers. I’d also love a set of Karlton flares; I just need wider tires and spacers. As for the headlights, they are custom retrofit from Circuit Demon and the tail lights are custom retrofit from Carshopglow.”
Shiloh was unable to grab any photos of the interior, but his interior mods are pretty limited to gauges, Cobb Access Port and some carbon details (to match obviously). As aesthetically pleasing his ride is, we’re also here to see what’s under the hood. Shiloh had us install our Hybrid Shortblock, which is a great platform for more power and what drew my attention to his build in the first place. So, I was curious about his supporting mods, and what are his goals / numbers he wants to reach.
“I love the NWRS Hybrid Block. For the future, I’d probably get a whole fuel system. I’d like to upgrade with fuel rails, injectors, regulators and everything needed to hit the 400’s. Every part I’ve put on so far is rated ~480hp. As for suspension, I’ve got Fortune Auto 500 coilovers with Swiftsprings and radial bearings. Additionally, I’ve got Whiteline swaybars and I plan to eventually fully upgrade the rest of the suspension.”
All in all, he’s put a lot of time and effort into this build and is only doing more! If you’re interested in Shiloh and the progress of his build, follow his Instagram.
