    Searching for the Accessport at the moment..... Boy he better not mis-shift in that STI when I race him. This stock looking 4eat might just put up a good fight!
    No offense, but he'll still smoke ya... pretty damn bad too. Good luck tho man, but you'll prolly have to touch the turbo to "hang" or maybe ... mayyyybe pull an STi.

    Yes it is in Canadian dollars, however if I were working in the U.S. I would be making around the same dollars per hour. So therefore I would have approximately the same anual salary in my line of work.

    I also find that Subaru seems to up the rate's more that say Honda/Acura does when comparing the States to Canada.

    If I wanna go with the stealth look (to take him by surprise). What can I or should I gut in the exhaust system but keep the exhaust?
    A Cobb Stage 2 5MT will be close in 1st and 2nd, but then the STi will pull away. In a Cobb stage 2 4eat, not a chance.

    Haha

    I agree w/ one of the previous posts ... I NEVER test drive potential cars unless I'm going to buy. I know myself because if I like it, I'll try to get it. I NEVER touched a STI until I was actually ready to buy it. I test drove on Monday and picked it up on Friday. I had multiple chances to drive other people's STI but always refused ... I was trying not to turn to the dark and glad I kept my stance. I love my STI and don't even think twice about my previous 2002 WRX Stage 2.5.

    I was reading in your signature, does a "catback" really give you more power or did you really mean "turboback?"

    Those are the numbers with just a catback (in my sig). I can't find my baseline numbers, but the catback appears to have given me around 20 HP, but that was after a year of my ECU learning on it also, which I think accounted for some of it.

    Humm

    I was just surprised as that's near what you get from a whole TBE which ~30whp. I'm assuming you still have both OEM cats inside.
