^what are those cables? is it to improve the grounds?
Yes, it helps improve chassis ground and power to battery. The big3 is the main wire from alt to battery and 2 grounds, but I went a step farther and did my own grounding kit to add some more grounding points. Seem mostly like it helps with big stereos. I was going to do a complete system along with this. That ended up falling apart on me, So I decide since I had the wire still laying around. I would install it anyways.

Nice tom... She looks good, I love the red on her... You dont see to many red imprezas out there... I need to start doing some bushings and a lock down kit for sure next to clean up the slop in my drivetrain... The engine replacement I had to do kinda killed my want and need to work on it, but eventually ill get there...

Sweet looking TR. I wish my car was red... But I already own a red car. So I bought the WRB color. What are your future plans?

Thanks. The motor replacement would put damper on things. Sorry to hear about that tho. Atleast its all freshened up on that end. Theres not many red ones around and i like that.

Thanks. I do love the red. I am going for suspension over power. Tint,springs, struts, sways, and endlinks are my want to purchase next. Theres also a few driveline mounts/ bushings I can do yet that are kinda cheap. I might throw in along the way. Also some diy things like fix the crack in my bumper and paint a few rust spots under the car. Things are going to come to an almost halt tho. Baby #2 is on the way. Found out about that 13 weeks ago.

Thanks. We really didnt plan it, But we did want to have a second child at some point. Hailey (our daughter) will be 4 in December. We figure thats a good span in age. We are crossing our fingers for a boy, but it really dont matter as long as he or she is healthy.

Thanks. Its a slow build, But I am working on it when I can afford it. I am thinking the motor mounts might be the next part I buy. After reading your review on them so far sounds like they will be an nice upgrade with the bushings I already have.

Looked back at some of the earlier posts and saw that I said about us having another baby.
Well heres an update. We found out that we are having a boy. My wife is due to have him any day now. We are really excited. Maybe he will be another clubwrx member some day. I will make a off topic thread with pics when hes born to celebrate.
