Okay, I have posted about my car for a little while. I splurged this week and spend several thousand dollars on it. Here's what I got:

Whiteline adjustable rear swaybar
Whiteline rear endlinks
Whiteline heavy duty mounts
STi RA gearset with NA installation kit
Exedy Clutch
ACT lightened flywheel
STi Group N tranny mount
Kartboy shifter bushing
KYB AGX struts
Eibach springs
STi group N strut tops
Foglight covers

So far I have only gotten the swaybar and related mods in the mail, and they'll be installed tomorrow. My car will be off to the dealership to get the drivetrain mods in as soon as the all arrive in the mail (and I have 600 Subaru bucks to help offset the price of installation). I'm probably most excited about these mods. Then the struts and springs and tops will go in. I'm trying to decide whether or not to get a 22b wing. I have to get the foglight covers painted (along with the sideskirts), and if I get the wing, it will be cheaper to do at this time, so I should decide soon.

Need week I'm getting four pot front brakes and Legacy H6 rear rotors. Then all I'll have left to do will be wheels (gold Tarmac IIs) and, of course, the v.7 EJ207. I'm going to through some JM cluster in there, too, but I'm not sure which one yet. Probably a v.6, but there's a couple things I have to look into before I decide about that.

WTF?

I thought you had a WS6 ?!?!? :confused1

You mean you don't think these will fit on my WS6?




I had a regular Trans Am . . . previous to that I had a WRX and before that I had a WS6. Last month I traded my Trans Am in for a '00 2.5RS with the intention of getting a regualr WRX engine swap. Now I've decided on a v.7 STi engine. Thanks, Timdog!

Here are pictures of my car. The only things I have received in the mail thus far are the swaybar and the mounts and links. There's no real point in posting pictures of them, but here are some pictures of my car:







and one of me as a pirate for good measure:

Nope, not anymore. I can only afford to mod one car, and I couldn't have a stock Trans Am. I think the RS is more fun to drive than the Trans Am, even though it is so much slower in a straight line. I don't know. It's just a blast. It seems even more fun than my WRX.

It's cool that you're focusing on the important parts instead of just going for instant bling or slapping on a massive turbo with no thought. That car will be an animal when you're all done.

What about parts that may have worn out like suspension bushings, other suspension bits? Just a thought...

Zooph, you have got to come to a LERSOC meet when you're done! You've got to show that baby off. I'd love to see it in person. Your car, that is.

Oh, and ninjas are cooler than pirates because the purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.

Yeah, I definitely got a Streetlite because I had heard of the lighter ones throwing CELs. I know it takes a little getting used to, so hopefully I'll like it.

You mentioned coming to the LERSOC meets in another thread (I think the pic thread), and I said just to PM me a time and date. I don't know if you saw it, though, because that's a pretty huge thread. But I'll try to come if you PM me a time.

I like the 22b better than the RB5, although I will admit to having seen neither in person. From the pictures, the RB5 looks to have a few more angles, where the 22b seems to be more curved. I'm definitely going to look at more pictures before I make a decision, though.

The bottom one is me as a ninja. As you can see, I love ninja with everypart of my body, including my weiner.
