    I just got my rear diffusor with the Cusco bar from JSCspeed and the tranny shield from Japan parts today! I should have them on by the end of the week, I'll take pics

    I made it down to the dealer and got the parts in. There's a plastic grommet and a screw (about 4mm). I also took a look at their diagram and it showed a slightly different clip/bolt arrangement from the one Big Sky used. As well as the screw in the place where Big Sky put the bolt, there are bolts (the same ones) at the front and back (pictured). More good news: the hole for the front bolt is already there, it was just covered with underseal. But the hole where the back bolt should go is too big, and too small for a clip (and the only near-sized self-tapper I had on hand). So I just drilled it out and put a clip in there.

    Road trip this weekend to test the gas saving!

    I put my tranny and rear diff. cover on today! Forget to bring the camera though. The install was fairly easy, took about an hour to do. Call me crazy but the car felt smoother on the highway

    I think you'll find the car is a little more resistant to wind buffeting w/ these pieces, mine seems to be .

    Just completed my first long run since putting on the side pieces and diffuser. Fuel figures were about the same as usual (24.7mpg) but it wasn't exactly equal test because I was late leaving and drove a bit faster than normal. One problem I'm having that nobody seems to have mentioned is noise! The under panels seem to act as resonators and amplify all the sounds from under the car. It's not too bad at speed, because all the other noise drowns it out, but around town...

    Will this fit on the MY04-05 WRX (non STI) .. will it hold up in pretty firmly even with only 4 bolts/screws?

    The clips/bolts come w/ the piece and it will be pretty firm- just go to Ace Hardware or any big hardware chain an get a couple of universal/generic chassis clips to hold the front- they're only .25 a throw IIRC correctly then you won't have any worries at all

    Here's a pic of the clips I can't remember which ones I used (I think etiher style- or even similar will work)

    Thanks for mentioning the noise! That info is hard to come by.

    Could you describe in more detail what the noise is like?

    Do you think putting rubber washers at the bolt points would help? Or adding additional nylon connectors?
