I have to be honest, the car runs beautifully, even with the cams. Power delivery is nice (for an N/A) and the few people that have driven the car comment on how smooth it runs. The headers & HFC made the biggest difference, even without a tune (at the time) I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat when I drove it home.

Yep, good recommendations on the brake mods, I will probably do the master cylinder brace, that's an easy one, and I may change the lines to SS next time I change the brake fluid.

I'm probably going to leave the wheels as they are unless I stumble upon a killer deal. The roads here in QC are terrible, and the WRX wheels (while not light) are pretty bombproof, and cheap.
Thanks for the in depth response! I have a hid kit now but will eventually do a retrofit however the more and more I hear of headers, the more I want
I have to agree on the Wrx wheels, I was considering those for a while but just like you said a killer deal on eneki's came around . Best of luck on your future mods man, keep it up!
Reide- since you are already low and pulled everywhere I would say go for it. Rots d-forces are also really nice too.
