    10' sti in the houston area

    Guess it's time to start a build thread. Already have a cobb intake and stage 1 tune.
    Just installed the cartboy short throw shifter. At little more in depth than i thought it would be due to the reverse lock out.

    Just purchased the Cusco Front Strut Tower Bar Type OS, waiting impatiently for it to arrive now. Slowly building over time. I want to feel the effects before i move on to the next upgrade.

    Have you gotten any sway bars and end links? I hear that they are more noticeable over the strut tower brace

    Not yet, the bar with be my first install as far as suspension goes. They'll be down the road. This is just an easy install for the time being, until i have more daylight to work with after work. Probably doing the downpipe next.

    +1 on the swaybars and endlinks.
    Those, the shifter bushings and the rear differential bushing inserts.
    That will really tighten things up.

    Have the shifter bushings, going on when i change the dp. It's a progressive build. And difficult to work on with only the tools i carry. Down side of a traveling career.

    Installed the cobb dp and kartboy shifter bushings yesterday. Longer than expected but took my time on it. The bushings were a bit of a pain for me but totally worth it. Rear bushing was bad. Only have a few photos. As things progressed, muscles started getting tired. Been quite a while since I've done some serious car work. Today, shoulders, neck, arms, chest, and abs are sore as hell! Lol. Felt like i did a 6 hour workout secession.
    Pitch stop and rear tower bar on order now. Gonna do something simple before i tackle the suspension! On to the pics:
