    Our opinions do not really matter as long as your happy with it. Personally, it is not something I would have done but that is just my opinion.

    I always question whether anybody will be able to see you brake when you tint things that dark.

    Man I should have had a subaru all along with my talons tsi I had and my 3kgt vr4 just for doing thing that can't be seen I would get flamed by everyone. Wrx guys are really cool well yea I had fears that no one would be able to see my break lights, before I did it I order the super bright led brake lights as a precaution. I haven't put them in yet but you can see my break lights just fine with out the led's . Here's more photos of my new lip and painted winter rims. Also I did the eyebrow till I could get my morett headlights painted and put on, I have been contemplating doing the morett tail lights. I'm still undecided if they will look good or not never seen them in person. So what do u guys think?

    gold wheels look great on black. hate the taillight tint and the eyebrows.

    morette tails look awful IMO, however when done right morette headlights look great.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of the visual mods, but it's not my car so do what you will.

    You mentioned it's a project. What are you goals?

    My goal is to complete the exterior carbon hood roof trunk and rear bumper, and my big goal is to reach 300-350 awhp and one day to be over 400 awhp I have the ecu unlocked, I have injectors cold air intake by injen I'm getting a fmic kit. I wanna 180degree the manifold and I need a bigger turbo I'm thinking 20g plus I'm gonna rebuild my extra transmission to handle it all. I just want something close to what I had in my 3kgt vr4, it was pushing 400 awhp that's with two 16g turbos a big fmic 1000cc walbro fuel pump injectors full exhaust a built trans forged piston crank just fully built

    Look. I'm refraining from flaming you. Your mod list is all jacked up. You need direction.

    If you want 400whp, a 11 year old bugeye is not your ticket. Achieving 400whp on a brand new 2002 WRX was very VERY expensive 11 years ago. Sell the WRX and buy something else. That's my suggestion to you.

    In the meantime, sell that Injen piece of crap. They are known for skewing MAF readings. If you want a larger turbo (TD05-18G is the largest I'd go on a 2.0L), you'll need all the supporting mods. That includes braking and handling modifications. Want 400whp? You'll need to rebuild your motor and transmission and rear differential (the most expensive components of a car) to handle that power. Might as well buy an Evo; those cars can achieve 400whp with nearly zero motor work.

    FYI, we have members that have invested more than $25K into their 2002-2003 WRXs and still haven't achieved 400whp.

    Thank you very much for your advice, I appreciate it I will take it all into consideration but this is the platform I chose to do my buld on. Now the exterior really doesn't matter I'm trying to see what I like its all gonna change again I'm sure. I realize its gonna be tough, it wasn't easy with an almost dead platform of a first gen. Vr4 but I did it and regardless. So if I spend 2500 or 25000 I will one day achieve my goal or destroy my car in the process I thought that is what building your own car was all about instead of buying new where's the pride in that, if your able to achieve and pass up what someone bought now that's an achievement. Now as far as the turbo goes that seems to be a good idea I just might do that instead of the 20g. I'm also debating a newer 2.5 wrx swap or a sti hybrid swap going on, ill figure it out later this project is gonna take me a while and I'm sure my ideas will change between now and when I'm finally finished with this build if I ever finish. Thanks
