    Thanks. Just Tein H Tech springs & F/R upper strut bars. That's it. I do plan on getting bigger F/R sway bars & endlinks though. In due time.

    Thanks. The swap wasn't too bad at all. I worked on it for a couple hours every few days & it was done in a week. I could easily do it in a day if I had to. I was also doing my side skirts, mud flaps, & other things. It's a piece of cake. I'm looking into doing swaybars & endlinks too as my next mod. I'm sure you'll be happy with getting an UP & TBE & go stage 2. It's a whole new monster then. Where you from?

    I'm debating on doing the stage 2 before the swaybars/endlinks, just saw a deal on a DP on ebay if its still around after this weekend I might do it. Would be nice to have a lil more umf on the pedal. I live in Rochester, right around lake ave/104 but work in webster. we should meet up. maybe for the log cabin wednesday car met/show if the weather is nice or somewhere else.

    It's a toss up between stage 2 & SBs. Power vs handling. That's your call. Both are great additions though. I might have a DP for sale. I have to check with the potential buyer first. I live in Fairport. I actually drove out to Charlotte on sunday evening. I guess there's an informal car show out there then. There wasn't too much going on when I went, but it seems like it would mostly be ricers bouncing off the rev limiter in the parking lot. Who knows, I might check it out again. The Log Cabin is a good time. I'm going this week, weather permitting. Here's a link for area shows. Scroll down to Rochester area. There's one or more every night of the week!

    Hey! I almost forgot about this thread. Not too much going on. It looks like fall is upon us,.. a little too soon IMO. I spun a bearing in my car & am about to put an STi motor in.

    Did you end up going stage 2 or upgrading your SBs?

    Oh that sucks. Sorry to hear. I'm not doing anything to the tranny. I don't beat on her, so it shouldn't be a problem. If anything does happen, I'll probably get the STi RA gear set. I'd rather spend $1600, rather than $6K. I should be pulling the motor in a few weeks.

    Yeah, I will definately not be taking my car to the drag strip after the swap. I already had a 95 Legacy that I drive most of the time. She's got 204K on her & doesn't complain at all.

    Yea i feel you on that. I am calming down on the whole car as a toy mantra... Although looking into the possibility of getting a 91 Lexus SC400 from my uncle in TX for a summer toy. Meaning no rust and in great condition. No mechanical or electrical probs and he reupholstered and replaced almost everything inside. Best part is he only wants 3K for it because he just got a SC430. So seriously thinking of doing that for next spring when I have no car payment.

    So have u been to the log cabin or any other meets this summmer? I think I have missed all lol

    Good luck on getting the Lexus. I've been to the Log Cabin maybe 3 or 4 times since I completed my turbo swap in April. It's the same scene. I went last week & there were too many ricers bouncing off the rev limiter. I hate that ish!
