I wouldn't get the power slots just because plain faces are just as good and cheaper.

My roommate has Powerslots on his RSX and likes them. If you have the cash... eh, I'd go for it if that's what you want. I have heard they don't do much compared to stock replacements though.

Basically, I've heard they make a difference and that they don't. I'd check into it more.

Opensource or the AP, if they get it out this decade, will give you more control than PP6 engine management and the opensource is less than $100 if you have a laptop already. the AP is $700 ish for the turbo guys so id expect the N/A one to be similarly priced. PP6 is a piggyback... it's not directly controlling the engine management system, so it's not very powerful. Opensource is out now, and has been, for years. Opensource also has a huge community of users to get help from but it also requires a lot of reading and understanding intemately how your engine works. weigh your options, but know that PP6 is the least powerful choice.

Also, there are spacers that will make the rear suspension height match the front suspension height so the space between the wheels and wheel arches matches, in case it bothers you.

so, how do you like the Perrin rear sway bar? i'm thinking about the 19mm but that's what it is stock for the WRX anyways. so maybe i should just go with the stock WRX one, what do you think?

Stock WRX rears are 20.

They'll make you car very neutral with 22mm front sway.

Slotted rotors have not shown much of a street advantage, but on a track (not autox) it has shown to have some advantages.

Cryotreated flat rotors are pretty good though.

the rear sway bar is awesome! i can snap my rear around much easier on the track and on the gravel roads. as well body roll has been greatly reduced and the car just feels so much more stable

Only for 02, possibly 03 if I recall correctly.

04+ is 17mm rear.

Seriously haha. My 20f/20r can snap if my rear tires have too much air in them.

For the rotors you will never know the difference in a blind test. Pads, Fluid, and good tires are infinitely more important to braking than any rotor. I am running the cheapo autozone blanks and i drive my car HARD and have not had any issues with them.

Also on the slotted part...with todays pads it is completely unneccesary due to the fact that they dont outgas like they used to.
