    Did a couple of new things this weekend, did the torqued solutions tranny mount and crossmember bushings and finally did a defi boost gauge. Very happy with the difference the transmission mount made and it was a pretty simple install on top of it. Sorry for the pics, I don't have a real camera.

    Well, my clutch gave up on me a few weeks ago right under 20k miles on the car(my fault one too many launches) and had it replaced with a southbend stage 2 endurance clutch and an ACT streetlite flywheel. Over all it feels pretty similar to the OEM clutch, just a slight bit of chatter here and there from dead stops but not too bad. Aside from that i also finally installed my Prosport wideband gauge.

    car looks great. what size tire is that? I'm shopping for a WRX possibly and looking at options for wheel tire combos that look 'right' when at a stock ride height. (I had a sti that beat my brains out before...I plan to leave stock springs and struts on this car and upgrade sways...it'll be a daily for me, that's plenty)

    Did you have to roll or pull fenders with those wheels?

    I had the rear fenders rolled but that was it. No rubbing whatsoever

    How was the fitment of the FMS fmic? I am considering picking up once of their top mounts. I really like the RPF1s on your car. I didm't used to like them, but they have totally grown on me.

    Thanks! Only issue with the fmic is the crash beams holes have to be drilled out a little bigger because they don't match up. The first time you put the piping together is a bit of a hassle too but for the price difference it's not a big deal

    Holy mother of EWG… Normally, EL headers sound wimpy to me, but your still sounded mean (not quite as mean as UEL ). That waste gate sounds so awesome. I guess I better start saving. Do you have some before and after numbers?

    haha thanks. I wish i did but i don't have any numbers prior to the EL headers. Hopefully i will be getting tuned in the next month or two and will get it on a dyno afterwards
