    Good choice on the turbo, perfect for the 2.5.

    Are you planning on running a larger TMIC or a FMIC?

    Put your heatshields back on yet?

    thanks

    i might do a frontmount later on, but the stock one will be ok for now.

    and heatshield will be staying off for the reason that there is no place to mount them to without the stock turbo or stock downpipe. i would have to get the cusco aftermarket heatshield, or somting along thoes lines.

    There's a bracket that goes on the two bolts on the top of the turbo that holds a mounting bracket for a trimmed heat shield.

    I wouldn't be running a green with a TMIC, but i'm not a TMIC fan.

    Have you gotten it tuned yet?

    tires are 245/40/18 (stock is 245/45/18) rims are 18x7.5

    i forget what the offset is, its alot tho in order to fit over the big brakes. i think it was like 48

    go to subydude.com, they were helpfull
