i have never heard anything good about CFT in my life. they have a pretty bad reputation actually

good places: slowboy racing, PRS tuning, real street performance.

Did you paint the hood scoop a flat black? It's kinda hard to tell from the pics. I badly need to re-paint mine...the paint is chipping off all over. Looks clean:thumbup:

Do the gutter guard mod. It will make the grill look much better. IMHO

I bought this kit: STi & WRX Performance Parts: Exedy Clutch & ACT Streetlite Flywheel Combo, WRX 2.0L (SAVE $50.50!!).

It came with: Excedy stage 1 clutch, ACT Streetlite flywheel, pressure plate, throwout bearing alignment tool and lube

I installed all the parts in my garage with a help of a friend in January and since then have put on around 9,000 miles it. I still get a slight chatter when the car is cold or if it sits for a night in the damp air but overall I'm happy with it.

I've read a lot of guys saying the lighter flywheels on bugeyes will throw engine misfire codes but I haven't experienced that. I would not recommend going with the Prolite flywheel. The 2.0 revs a lot quicker with the Streetlite than with a stock flywheel but still has some mass to help get the car moving without having to rev it up every time you need to start from a stop. If you go too light you will lose drivability.

Choose wisely and good luck!
