    thanks buddy
    Will you be available tomorrow around 3-4ish? The headers could be a pain...since all the heat goes through there, bolts will be a mofo. airtools makes it eaassy, but I won't have them with me...

    Perhaps i could take those off your hands?

    a little off topic...i apologize

    this is not in direct response to the thread below, but i just bought an '08 wrx and i was looking at some videos on youtube and reading some stuff online, and i came across a post where someone made the claim that the wrx had more than 22X hp and that subaru was just trying to reduce insurance claims and make the wrx more distinct than the sti...could someone please verify if this claim is true or bogus...thanks!

    yes, the new wrx 2.5L power is slightly underrated. with some off the shelf parts & electronics, it can be better utilized.

    ok

    the claim was that the wrx really had 250 hp. not quite? even with 225 horses it beats so many cars in its class and above its class (considering it also had awd)
