    Your going to want to find an STi mid pipe or run your cat back mid pipe and stock axle back. That way the flow out of the turbo has a lot more time to taper than at the downpipe. My old STi was stage 2+ and running stock cat back kept having issues

    Ordered a 2 gauge 52mm BNA solutions pillar pod yesterday. I will be putting greddy white faced boost and oil pressure gauges in there

    Haven't posted anything in a while so here's a quick update. My gauge pod from BNA solutions has shipped and that will be the next upgrade complete with greddy gauges(oil pressure and boost).

    I also bought some silicone vacuum line to re do some of the lines in the bay and for the boost gauge. Some pics for all you picture readers.





    There is really not much left to do to the car except suspension and wheels. I'm about to garage it for the season and bust out the explorer so she stays clean and rust free. Pics to come of the gauge pod

    Most recent mod is the turboXS quad tip exhaust. I installed it yesterday with the turboXS carted bellmouth down pipe. The fitment was pretty good. It required minor modifications such as bending the hanger on the drivers side muffler to make it sit right. I also had to put a hose clamp around the rubber stock hanger and tighten it to pull the muffler up. I'm attributing this to the weight of the new mufflers.

    The sound.....holy crap that setup is loud. It sounds very throaty and clean. It's not raspy in the least bit. I like the sound but I was hoping it would be a bit quieter. But with a full 3" turbo back I don't know why I thought it would be anything but loud.

    Back to the system itself. It is clearly made very well. Awesome weld quality and huge thick flanges. It did not leak at all. Did I mention that it looks bad ass?

    Overall a good quality exhaust but I'm glad I didn't pay retail for it. IMO $1200 is a bit much. Now for the pics
