    Either way - nice car. I have owned my WRX for 2 months and have never loved a car this much. Enjoy.

    Thanks man!! Yeah I noticed that a couple weeks back. The hatch has that rear diffusior which is sick. But not having the dual is kinda weak. Although it does help when modding the exhaust. One muffler is way cheaper then two lol.

    I've had the car for a little more then a month now. But to be honest I cant see any swirl marks, even in the sun. I've done the waxing since i've gotten it. Think she looks pretty good. Maybe it was the sun that day.

    Spoke to Cobb yesterday and they do have a MAP for stage 2. I guess that have an access point. I'm still learning engines so I don't know a whole lot about it. (Have no idea what "EM side of stage 2" means haha) But according to Cobb their using the LGT downpipe for the new 08's.

    They will hold up just fine. I banged second and third gear often in the stage 2 LGT and never had an issue. It was fairly easy to chirp the tires in 2nd actually. However, if the LGT clutch is also on the new 08 WRX, that is where the sore point will come in to play. It was a very conservative clutch and you really had to finesse it to get any good hole shot out of the package. If you over-revved even a little....sniff, sniff...and you get to smell burnt clutch for a half hour or so. I looked at it as my power train relief valve

    Ok I lied I should be out by mid December. I called back to make sure ended up speaking with the same guy. I was wrong, the dp is available which is the dp from the LGT but there's no mapping available for it yet
