Quick update: I took the time to put the reflect-a-gold on the intercooler and it went pretty well, was just time consuming is all. I had the 15ft roll and used about 12ft of it. Stuff gets used up pretty quick. Anyway here are the results:
I will compare temps with a IR thermometer and another fellow wrx owner if i get the chance to show the effectiveness of this stuff.
Also did a cheap mod to the intake. Took off the hacked up factory elbow i had coming out of the air box and replaced it with a velocity stack to increase some air flow. More about the benifets of this can be found here: Improving The (2002-2007) Subaru WRX/STi Intake
That's all for today, hopefully fenders will be rolled tomorrow and suspension will be close to being put on. I might just go ahead and put the sway bars on the car just to see the difference it will make on stock springs/struts.
