    Another guy on here broke the same bolt. I would try your dealership or a local nut/bolt store, try to match it up with the other one. I'm sure its metric

    Take the other bolt out and run to Home Depot...use the little screw in thread sizers they have in the nut/bolt hardware isle. That will tell you the size and you have the other one for comparison.

    Did a little bit of work on my car yesterday but sadly didn't get around to doing any wiring yet but Emily is on a good track to being healthy again I fixed my boost leak, bent out my fender so it just needs to get some touch up paint and be alright.





    BEEP BEEP! Going for gold!

    Next to come will be my front splitter hopefully this weekend.

    Had a little photoshoot over by Rutgers University, probably the 1st time in awhile where I wasn't the photographer. Photo creds go to Kyle Petrick awesome photographer and sweet STi











    Sadly after the shoot was over I had gotten a flat tire the craters in NJ are wheel killers

    So finally installed my APR Front Wind Splitter took a few hours to plan it out not so long to drill all the holes. I was a little nervous about making my own holes but I measured everything out and it looks great!



    Started by drilling the first two holes while the splitter was jacked up on my bumper then took it off and used the preset holes on the bumper for the rest and drilled a few of my own for the extra bolts they supplied. As well as the front supports which really add to the appearance!






    Stupid LED turn signal (Pass. side) won't change to orange have to buy two new ones, not even a year old!



    I am even more in love with Emily she is almost two years old

    I ordered a new TB-IC hose because the OEM one is garbage but it is on backorder so no boost until that comes in... hella horns and rear fog wiring on the to do list

    how do you like the front wind splitter ? I read some reviews about how it pushes the front end down so much some guys front bumper was pulling off.

    Looks good.

    Question, where did you get all of your LED's? Dome, license plate, overhead, trunk and reverse?

    I've only had it on for less than a day and I don't drive on the highway that much but it is supposed to produce 80-100lbs of downforce at 100mph!

    Answer: Amazon I paid no more than $20 and they all have worked perfectly no problem. The more expensive dual color LED turn signal I got already went out on one side.

    Does the splitter get in the way of the oil filter?

    It looks really good but it would scarp on my drive way. Did you do any other LED bulb swaps?

    All the interior lights are LED along with the trunk and license plate I got them off amazon fairly cheap but they work very well!

    Photo dump as promised...

    I went with switcback leds they arent bad but with they were brighter. Planning on painting on painting the headlight housing? Not sure how I feel about splitter brace looks too bright and vampire like but still looks good.
