Adam Crane’s Mod List and Bio

Bio

Adam is living in Northern Va, grew up in Greenwich CT. He moved down to Virginia to attend George Mason University and choose to stay down here afterwards for work. Currently he's working as an Implementation Engineer in the SaaS Cloud Operations department with SAP. Some of his previous cars are a 2004 Volkswagon Touareg V8, and a 2005 Volkswagon GLI. Some mods on the GLI included, turbo back exhaust, CAI, FMIC, front and rear sway bars, custom body kit, Alpine IVA-D900 head unit with Rockford Fosgate speakers and amps.
The main point behind Adam's build for his ST is a daily driver, weekend warrior. Currently, this is his only car, but hopes to change that soon with another project car. The build needed to keep the ST reliable for daily driving and road trips, but at the same time allow him to be competitive in autocross and look good for Car Shows. This is what led to his choice in the GTX2860R turbo. This turbo gives him a similar driving style to the stock turbo and allows for quick spool which is ideal for autocross. The KW v3's allow him to maintain a higher speed through the corners, and pull out cleanly on exits. The KW's don't have super stiff springs, so he doesn't sacrifice much in the comfort department when daily driving. With the v3 spec's he gets adjustable Dampening and Rebound for when he's racing, to adjust it his needs.
