    I've seen this as well. Though the hoods are roughly the same weight, aluminum is less prone to cracking under stress.

    BTW, great build
    A couple things. The plugs are upside down. And there's a trick to ground the rear diff light. But your ABS light will always be on until ABS fails. It's super straight forward.

    You don't have to cut anything. And you don't have to move any pins. Cruise control works just fine.

    The 05STi cluster is a pain in the ass. The 04 is a plug and play swap in the 02-07 with just grounding the rear diff light.

    Nope. The 04 cluster doesn't have that problem. The 05+ does.

    HA, wish it was mine, I just detail that beast and it's friends. That said, I'm pretty good at cleaning things, so we can work something out.
