It's so trashy, I love it. Are those BMW Style 19's?

I've finally put 500 miles of city driving on the new clutch. It's flawless at 10psi, Changing it back to the 012amm, 450cc's an 18psi soon so we'll see then.

We've only had 5" or so of snow in the last week but with the blizzaks mounted it's glorious. Removed rear anti-sway bar.

Suspension/steering is as following;

6k springs all around, front 2.5x8, rear 5" top to 2.5"(forget what the are in lbs/in, like 425 or something) with 5" sleeves
v8 cutlass supreme front strut inserts (2.5 shorter than stock iirc) equally shortened 89+ front strut/hub assemblies.
Stock spec gab shocks in the back. They feel good!
Adjustable pan-hard rod, hiem joint on chassis link side
Axle retaining chains, small gauge but plenty of holding power.
Inner and outer tie rods are all from old blue which are less than a year old
oe GT spec p/s rack
modified strut top mounts
gt strut top plates
gt braces


With full interior/carpet, this car is actually incredibly comfortable.

Running dp to an open test pipe right now.

Thankfully I had found some earplugs at a truck stop before the 4 hour roadtrip.

**** quality pics





butt shot of the poor 05 wrx that gets pulled weekly

I feel like some early round mirrors would look sweet on your car.

It came with them, I still have them but one of the hinges is too rusty to use.

I love this thing in the snow!! Still without a rear sway, it really helps with "re-gaining" traction.

The plastic underbody splash shield has been great but I'm putting a large two piece aluminum skid plate on this weekend. It is needed at my right height. Im also still running an open test pipe. My question, Is 3" to 2" way too unrealistic of a downgrade in exhaust diameter for the current 12psi setup? It would be so quiet!, The test pipe exits past even the driveshaft support bracket so it's not like the bottle neck would be anywhere near the source. Please any experience or good info on the temps or dangers> wouldn't I also gain torque?? How much high end loss would even occur with our types of curves and 6k rev cut?

why not after the test pipe have a Y put in and just make it a cut out? THat way when you want it to be silent you still have the option.

I thought about that, integrating it into either the downpipe for better clearance or where the bottle neck would be. 200 bucks for a nice electronic switch setup and y pipe from summit.

I dont even have a switch. Its three bolt close with a gasket so help with the seal. Pretty easy to take on and off. Most of the time I just leave it off since I dont have a horn and need them to hear me coming haha.

Summit and Jegs both sell cast metal mechanical cutouts for cheap cheap. Have a welder buddy stick some flanges on one, hook it to a cable under the dash, profit.

They are very cheap for the bolt on cover style cutout/pipe. I dont know how well a manual flange hooked to a cable would seal/re seal.

Just get the bolt on cutouts. Unless you want to spend $300+ on an electric. The cheapo electrics don't last very long. QTP is the best out there IMO.

ill check into it. I may just end up doing a bolt in affair, quiet is nice but red hot exhaust isn't so Im still undecided. Looking for a setup that is appealing to more than just ur average volvo person. People like unsuspecting sleepers, and the 242gt will be for sale soon
