2002 WRX with a lot already done, some of you know me, a lot of you don't and will think this is pointless... but what the heck.
My mods list isn't really going to help, it will fall into the explanation of what is going on.
here it is for those who find the surrounding parts curious here or there:
Comprehensive WRX Modification List
Presently the body/frame mods are being completed.
Parts stacked and waiting:

possibly replacing a rotor -StopTech cryo'd slotted cross-drilled x4 already installed
Cusco brake master cylinder brace already installed
recently replaced autometer cluster pod with SMYClusterMaker pod, and ATI dash pod with Cheetah Enterprises/Kakumei carbon fiber pod
replaced all AutoMeter gauges with MV2 Swiss stepper mov't intelligent electronic gauges and installed Alpha electroluminescent overlay
replaced knockoff ARC Ti ball shift knob with Autobahn Kraftwerks carbon 115mm 300gm collared knob
all of the above is being installed along with the following:
rear C rails must be cut from datum points 210 to 225 between the trailing arm mount end and the bumper beam, and will be replaced with a graft from a 2005 WRX STi. The wheelbase will be 2" wider x 2" longer overall. Probably not something I will ever notice. From what the companies involved are saying, the car will be considerably more stable at cruising speed, and less effected by wind.
also installing a Mine's trunk lip spoiler downforce multiplier.
I'm frustrated that no one uses that piece correctly.
it is intended to be used in conjunction with a spoiler, either the ProDrive version or an STi RalliSpec (tall) wing spoiler. Used alone it creates drag and understeer at high speeds due to a lift vortex that the Cusco vortex generator cannot foil. I'd go wingless before i did that...lol
pics as it happens. spoiler and shifter pics coming. i'll be installing the matching brake handle, the Momo blue/black pitstop is getting trashed.
