    For those interested, because Matthew brought this up...

    The Intake has been wrapped in a insulating wrap and will be sprayed with an IR-reflective coating. This will protect the intake from heat transfer from convection/conduction (heat wrap) and also IR radiation (reflective spray).

    Absolutely not . I don't think I'll be installing/tuning until after June. Hoping for some availability from Phil at Element Tuning.

    Hey, I just noticed, there's no mention of springs/struts? Why was I under the impression you had D-specs or something?

    Nope, not yet. When my struts go.

    I actually found from the original invoice (in the glovebox) that the original owner ordered the following packages:
    1.) Premium sound package (Upgraded speaker and Subwoofer)
    2.) Performance Group 16A Package (Short throw shifter, Boost Gauge, Titanium Shift knob)
    3.) Peformance Suspension Package

    Subaru 2003 Impreza WRX, Outback Sport, RS, TS prices, options.

    SOA's definition of the performance suspension package:
    4 struts, stabilizer kit, bushing kit list price plus inst $1,500
    #B202FE31-to-50 DS)
    To be honest, I'm not sure what struts were added, but I've replaced the sway bars and bushings since anyhow. The ride height isn't any lower than another Bugeye.

    When did you do the big brakes? I like..

    I def need to do something on the front of my lil piggy.. the factory front brakes on the later cars are def not up to the weight of the car.

    Did you notice any change in normal daily driving? I know the track/agressive driving benefits, but curious how the bigger fronts with outback rears (similar to my 3G rears) feel around town.

    The brakes are definitely much stronger... but now I notice the deficiency in the ABS system on the earlier cars much more.

    I would say a good set of rotors and pads along with SS lines and high BP would get you 90% there for DD. I just needed a little bling and these were very well priced.

    FWIW when tracking I remove my ABS fuse and utilize threshold braking. However I'm not comfortable relying on threshold braking in DD. In fact, IMO the stock master cylinder isn't very well matched to my BBK, which makes threshold braking more difficult to initiate and control. One of these days I'll switch to a larger capacity master cylinder... I've yet to confirm if the STi MC is an upgrade...
