    Thats my 2 cents.
    Well I thought about it and what I want to do is raise the car because is rubbing in the back when I have people and maybe get an catback to quiet that damn exhaust because is too loud. I got a head ache on my way home yesterday. But I still want to collect the stock parts.

    You have a catback already what you need is a resonator pipe in the middle instead of it being a straight pipe off the turbo

    If your just looking for a quiet straight up catback i hear the borla hush is real nice and quiet

    You selling your springs? and if so you mind telling me how much shipped to 21701?

    Please check out the STi forum for the stick on STi mod paths. This will help you out in your decision making.

    For now, based on your stated needs, my recommendations are:

    1. Swap out the BOV for the stock BPV.
    2. Offer up a trade for the dollars + springs you have against stock STi springs.
    3. Offer up a trade for dollars + the DP you have against a stock DP or an aftermarket DP with high flow cat. Alternativley, purchase a DP with HF cat in it. I'd recommend the Cobb unit for quality purposes.
    4. The noise from your catback is going to be the biggest dollar issue, so again, offer up a trade for your CB + dolalrs for a stock STi CB.

    Just so I'm not confusing anyone, you would recieve the trade parts PLUS dollars from the other party. You should not have to pay dollars of course

    After this is done, you'll now have a stock STi, or a stock STi with aftermarket DP and HF cat.

    Since your main concerns sound like liveablity and long term service, this should meet your needs. However, you should know that with the addition of the aftermarket DP with HF cat and the stock STi CB, you can now also purshase a Cobb AP and flash a Stage 2 map. This SIGNIFICANTLY increases the power of the STi, and you can still pass emissions and or/warranty related work by flashing back to the stock map. Again, check out the STi forum as there is a lot of info there.

    Good luck!

    2007 - WTF... Hell No I will not even be caught dead driving that.

    2006 - What was subaru thinking when they designed that nose?

    2005 - Perfect.

    Is hard to find a stock 2005 in Miami for a good price. So my friend at Maroone hooked me up with a slight moded 2005 STi with 30k miles for $20k. I did a lot of research before getting the car. I did a VIN look up with Subaru and the car has never been flagged for mods and it has been brought for maintainance services. Everything w/ Subaru is fine w/out any problems. I did a look up on previous owner and any reports and no problems. So I decided to take a chance.

    After I take it back to stock. I want to learn and enjoy the ride because I have never had a car with 300 HP. After a while of enjoying the car and learning it tricks. I'll look into minor mods that won't give me crap with warranty.

    I got good news, I got in contact with my previous owner and I now know everything that the car has. The springs are skunk 2. I'll probably be selling those after I get the stock ones.
