Picture time! So if anyone actually read the posts above about installing my carbon fiber front splitter, here are some pics that kind of show how I did this.

Here is the splitter fully installed, minus the support rods.

Here it is with the rods on and finally back on the car. It is indeed chassis mounts, however I didn't take pictures of how I accomplished this, if anyone is interested, shoot me a PM and I will help you out.

Had my wheels and tires mounted and balanced on Friday. Put them on yesterday. They look great on the car. The STi goes to andrewtech tomorrow to have the coilovers installed and an alignment done. Pics will be coming soon.

What are your impressions regarding the effectiveness of the splitter?

Well I can’t really say anything as far as performance/downforce as I have yet to take it to the track. And I refuse to treat public roads as a track.

I will say that my front end feels more planted and secure while cornering. But that may be due to the new suspension and tires. So who knows.

It is very aesthetically pleasing though!

She cleans up good for being 8 years old. Lol. Just wait, more to come. Had a guy reach out to me that does auto vlogs and photography. Had a photoshoot on Saturday. The photos above were just done with an iPhone. Actual professional photos and video are coming soon!

Stay home Brumage.
Yeah I have been for the most part...… It sucks, especially when I have to work still. Being essential sucks.

Too be fair I was the only one at the lake at the time. Ultimate social distancing.

There is also a video on youtube. If you are bored on quarantine and want to check it out. The channel is called JA's channel and you cant miss the video. I think the video is called something like "Matt's ATA fully built STi". Something along those lines.

I am starting to stock pile parts to finish up my build..... well maybe finish it, at least the next step. Anyway, I will be ordering the KillerB Holy header in the next couple weeks and the old lady got me the cobb 4 bar map sensor. Hoping to order my injectors In the next month or so too.

Before you order the Holy Header -- what Turbo do you plan on running the long term?

Be careful to match primary diameter with turbine.
