    I'm not a huge fan of what you did with the roof? It looks cheap but that's just my opinion. Was it plasti dip?

    Yeah it was plasti-dip but if you do it right it will look good. The drying process looks always looks the worst with plasti-dip. After it dries and sets in it looks good.

    You are braver than I. I painted my motorcycle flat black a year ago or so. What a PITA that was. I couldn't imagine taking a rattle can to my WRX. Post up a pic or two once it is fully cured.

    I think it turned out good from what I can tell. It's reversible too so that's good if you don't end up liking it just peel it off!

    The beauty of Plasti Dip is that you can take it off. If it doesn't turn out the way you like, you can always peel it off and get it wrapped in gloss black vinyl.

    I don't want gloss black though. I love the matte look.

    All of the stage 2 parts are in. Just waiting to hear back from Eric at Torqued Performance as to why their website isn't working at the moment. All parts should be getting installed tomorrow. I have already installed the SF intake as said before, I'm still in love with it. Very much so worth the money. After all parts are installed I'll be reflashing to TP Stage 2 map.







    The downpipe is getting wrapped and heat coated about half way down to keep some heat out of the engine.

    We get a lot of snow, rain and mud here in Colorado. I didn't want my filter too far down in the fender well and sucking up water or other nonsense. In addition the Cobb SF intake was a bit cheaper... granted I didn't get the intake box yet but still saved some money during the time being.

    Its official... I'm running stage 2 now. All parts were installed this evening. The total install took about 3.5 hours. The hardest part, which is optional, was reinstalling the intercooler. You dont have to take it off but it does make things a lot easier.
