    Now that is a lot mods for a 14 month old WRX! About the only thing you haven't done yet, at least what I just started to do, is swap out the front seats for something a little more sportier. Currently I have a Sparco Chrono Road but going to change it our for a R100 instead. The Chrono Road is little too big IMO and I want something a little tighter. Picked up a donor passenger seat online and just finished gutting it of all it's goodies. Will install the seat occupant detector into the new Sparco seat and since the donor seat came with factory heating element will put that into the driver seat as well.

    Had my EWG put on this weekend with a step colder plugs. this will be the end of power mods until the car is entirely paid off and time to start doing more suspension work and brakes

    Just an axleback? I hope you are just misusing phrases, stage 2 requires a downpipe.

    Yes, Cobb Downpipe and Nameless axleback. Didn't want to put a new mid-pipe as the Cobb downpipe is made to bolt up to the factory mid-pipe opening and not a full 3" end-to-end.

    will be doing tranny mount and cross member bushings sometime in the next week or so. considering doing a light weight crank pulley as well, anyone have any feedback from doing one on their own car?
