    Don't waste the money on that either. The SPT gauge is known to malfunction frequently: backlight burning out, incorrect boost reading, etc. Not worth the $300+ installed price. You can get a Defi gauge for $175-$200 on the higher side and install it yourself in 30 minutes and it will be MUCH better quality. You can find a much higher quality gauge such as AEM, Innovate, or STRI for under $150 and do it yourself.

    I totally agree! Worth every penny!!! I got mine within the first 100 of owning and never regretted it! Make sure they do the entire front fascia and at least 1/4 up your hood and the edge of your scoop! Mine added door cups, A pillars and front 1/4 of front fenders. I can't say it enough - you won't regret it, especially since it sounds like you really care how your car looks...and it's black so you'll appreciate the extra protection.

    I got my top window strip done today. I also set the install date for a clear bra. My car will be "protected" next Tuesday!

    I have the spt exhaust on my hatch, sounds nice. doesn't drone. not to loud but at the same time it isn't quiet. Although once i installed my AP it got a lot louder still sounding very nice. My neighbors know when i leave for work to put it simply.

    Yesterday I added a few things to my car. It sounds awesome, the shifting is sublime, and it just feels better to drive.

    SPT Exhaust

    SPT Turbo Heat Shield

    SPT Short Throw Shifter

    SPT Bushing kits (Lateral link, shifter, crossmember, trailing link)

    STI Transmission mount

    STI Engine Mount (RH and LH)

    STI Pitch Stop

    Not a chance. I had a local guy do it.
