    Just a little teaser

    Suspension is dialed in yet but this is right off the lift from installment.

    Still need to bring the front down a little, add a little camber, raise the rear a little and figure out how to un-sink the rear tires. Also need an alignment.

    Hopefully have it all dialed in by the end of this week!

    Stay tuned!

    If anyone is interested, my BC BR Coils are for sale. Willing to ship, pick-up preferred!
    FS: (For Sale) BC BR Coilovers 08+STi - NASIOC

    Here's a little update with my car btw….











    Suspension isn't fully set to how I want it, but I'l be installing control arms today and going for an alignment very soon. Front needs to come down about and inch and the rear needs less camber….. who woulda thought. Bags!!!

    Still no fittings yet for the surge tank, vibrant is taking forever and it's really getting aggravating because the fuel issues are really starting to arise!

    Looks pretty good. Do you raise it up when driving?

    Hey guys, so I know I've brought this up before and forgot if it was answered or not, but I plan to install the surge tank very very soon. My only question is, within the fuel basket, at the top, there are 3 nipples. One is feed, one is return and one is a vent. Can someone clarify to me which one is which. Is it labeled on the fuel basket? Are there like arrows pointing which way the fuel travels? Any input would be great! Thanks guys!

    I've always been intrigued by air-ride suspension, but not 100% convinced of the capability. In theory, air ride should provide fantastic adjust-ability and an excellent cross between performance and comfort. However, it seems as though the technology is used merely to "lay frame" and other ignorant behavior .

    Can you give a review on the performance capability of the suspension, cornering, and how it can handle track days?

    I feel that magnetorheological shocks are similar but provide better response.

    Unfortunately I have not gotten the suspension fully tuned in and aligned properly to bring it for a track day. I had to get rear control arms and just waiting to finish up the fuel system and trunk setup before getting the car completely aligned and corner balanced, possibly. Once that is all set in, I do plan on doing some track day events, which I will give a nice review of the suspension.

    Otherwise, as far as street performance, I am beyond impressed. Cornering is unbelievable, daily driving is very comfortable, dampening isn't the greatest, but for what it is, it does the job, bump steer kit will help quite a bit but I don't feel like spending the money. There is a video by air lift and their sti at the track. I suggest you watch it. Amazing how the suspension performs on a fairly big track.

    Have you ever driven a late 80s early 90s Lincoln Continental? They had an air ride type suspension, once you hit highway speed the car lowered itself for more efficient ride and center of gravity. The downside if you blew on of the struts, the car it dropped like a hydraulic on three wheels. Still fun to drive.

    I've never personally drove one but I know what it was like lol. You can actually do that with these setups but you got to be careful because we run big wheels tires so if you go to low, you're going to rub like crazy. If I'm cursing on the highway, I can drop a few psi in each bag and the car rides sooo smooth. Down side, as soon as I need to slow down or approach bumps, I rub on everything unless I air it up a little. It's really cool technology though.

    How much noise does it make?
    And can you post some pics of your compressor set up?
    I'd like to see the inside of your trunk.
