Fully Functional // Jordan’s STI


Photos by Andy Eineichner, Words by Matt Phillips

When it comes to modding a Subaru, there’s a fine line that people walk along. This line is the line separating “form and function”. We’re big advocates of saying that a car can be both, regardless of what the purists might have to say. Jordan Semansky is one of those people who have pushed the limits of his Subaru STI and he has accomplished both the form that we all crave, along with the function to compliment it. He bought the car from a sheriff back in January 2011 and it’s been an ongoing project of his ever since. His first modifications on the STI was a set of Stance Pro Comp coilovers, along with a set of Status Ring GT carbon seats. From there, he’s built the car into something that turns heads and performs like no other.

Jordan’s motivation to build the car was brought on by the passing of his father. He took it upon himself to build something that his Dad would be proud of. His father had an impressive fleet of cars of his own and now it’s Jordan’s turn to carry out the family tradition. He chose the car, a Hawkeye STI, because he wanted to build something a little out of the norm. He wanted something that he could have fun with on a daily basis without the worry of it breaking. Jordan wanted something fast, for when he wants to have fun, and he set his eye on a goal of 500 wheel horsepower.

Needless to say, he exceeded that goal by over 100 horsepower. His future goals are to include a full cage and a V-mount setup in the car. Jordan would like to give a special thanks to P&L Motorsports in Illinois for all of the work that they’ve done. All of the local guys in Milwaukee that are always down to hang out and do car stuff with him (Mike, Matt, Nate, Dan, Paul, and the rest of the guys). He would also like to thank Andy E for being rad and shooting this photos, and also for doing burnouts. He would also like to thank the rest of his friends in Lower Standards for being such a cool group of guys. Head on down to the end of the photos to check out Jordan’s extensive modification list.
