    Congrats on the car man! One thing I would recommend before buying the nameless exhaust find someone that has it and check it out. I have seen way to many people buy it and immediately sell it because it is so loud. Other then that good luck with the car! and enjoy

    I did some researching, but what other options are out there for axle back exhausts for a hatchback? And that Nameless has a Magnaflow muffler, correct?

    Cobb short throw shifter and Kartboy front and rear bushings came in today.


    De-badged and clean. It was WAY easier to do than I expected. They basically peeled right off.

    Received my Equator Elite WRX Sphere with custom engraving, aka "Nerd Knob", from Lathe Werks and could not be happier! The quality is awesome and Chris was very helpful and patient when it came to the graphic for the engraving.

    Ok, so I installed the Kartboy front and rear bushings as well as my Cobb STS. The bushings were a little pain in the butt to install, but not too bad. One thing that is concerning me is that with the front bushing there is about a 1/16 to 1/32in. in of play side to side. The nut is as tight as it will goes as it ran out of threads on the bolt. Is this normal or do you think I have the wrong bushings for my car? Everything else fits snug. I was thinking of getting some washers to get a snug fit.
