    Great writeup!

    I was thinking of doing this as well, and I think you have motivated me. BTW, these holes you drilled, they don't enter the cabin do they? I haven't really poked around under my suby's floor much, so I am not too familiar with the locations that you drilled.

    good to hear... i've recently been running without my front skid plate and i have noticed a definitive decrease in front end stability. however, i also notice less heat in the engine compartment... which for me is more important for now. i do have a lip to help in that area for now. see, if i had an 04+, i would definitely get the cusco lip + front diffuser... big money, but well worth it for wind tunnel/ race proven parts.

    I wanted to get the front Cusco diffuser but the lip alone was $ 530! I will get it eventually becasue I can't get out of my drive way without scraping, stupid hill for a drive way I want to get a rear diffuser too just not sure which one, HKS or APR?
    And this could be all in my head but my car does feel a little smoother on the high way.

    You know, I just noticed that you didn't install that other under body panel that mounts near the downpipe....or did I miss it?

    I've been thinking of adding the rear sti diffuser w/ the cusco bar, so it looks like I'll do that first

    That piece isn't available in the US AFAIK- didn't come on the USDM 06 STi.

    huh, interesting. I guess those two longer ones will suffice. I wonder how much the missing panel would help though, because fabricating that shouldn't be terribly difficult.

    carbing okayama makes a front under panel with vents... and its under $200. something i may look into for the future if i'm still not happy with aero.


    as for the rear diffuser, i'd go with hks... you have to cut, but it'd work better. however, one must be careful when adding aero mods to the car, as it can have a very negative effect. you must maintain a balance from front to rear. done right, it can yeild amazing results.

    for what its worth, my friend's s2000 just got an INGS +1 kit and lowered quite a bit on coilovers... he saved a 1/4 tank of gas, based on the good ol trip to vegas test. aerodynamics is your friend people... but it can also quickly become your worse nightmare if done incorrectly.

    Decided to do this for my '06 wagon. Good news: half the holes are there already; I only need to drill along the outer edge and into the subframe at the front. The bad news: where the "6mm bolt" should go is a square hole! It's only about 8mm square, so it's not really big enough to take a fitting to hold the 6mm bolt. So it's down to the dealer on Monday to try and figure out what needs to go there.

    Subaru has some square plastic bits that snap in and and then are threaded- not sure if that is what belongs there, but I've seen them before- especially w/ smaller fasteners.

    BTW I now have the tranny cover in as well japanparts.com was able to source it- my under aero bits are now complete.

    I just ordered the tranny one myself! They now have it in there line up parts, so no more special order. Thanks Big Sky WRX for the help locating that part.
    I also ordered the STI rear diffusor with the Cusco bar. I wanted the HKS one but I figured I would save alot more money going with the STI part. I'll post pics when everything is installed.
