The Right Signal

I was heading to Salem State University one afternoon, when I noticed a clean, stock AE86 next to a mint Evo 5 sitting in front of a small automotive shop. I drove by these cars on every visit to the school before finally deciding to stop by, where I met the man in charge of Signal Motorsports. Aiden welcomed me in and we talked briefly about the Evo, and Corolla he had up for sale. Little did I know, he had a SEMA quality build in progress. 5 years in, Aiden has produced one of the most immaculate 22B inspired WRX’s in the country.

The famous 22B was never available in America but that didn’t stop Aiden from getting hold of a set of steel handcrafted 22B widebody panels for his rally inspired build.

Power comes from a meth injected EJ205 with a ton of top notch goodies from Bee*R, Prodrive, Perrin, and more.

BMW Mineral Grey shines bright in the sunlight and really gives Aiden’s Subaru a classy aggressive look

Aiden has fitted damn near the entire Seibon catalog to his car, including this Seibon Carbon spoiler

Additional Seibon kit, including Seibon hood scoop, and Front Lip

Nguyen sits comfortably in STi seats facing a matching cluster, dash, carpet and center console. The interior is tied up with custom alcantara door inserts
