Yeah, I originally got it from Import Image. Their product page was incorrect at the time. They have since updated the page to have a drop down to choose between 08-10 WRX and 11 WRX. The last front sway bar was supposedly sold a couple days ago, probably 12 hours before it was gong to be sent out to me

I'll try Circuit Motorsports, but it seems that most people are just drop shipping these things, so I'd have to find someone that actually keeps them in stock to have any chance that they'd have it. The places I've tried already have all told me that Whiteline is completely out of them for 8-10 weeks

Yeah, it does fit. The WRX bar is maybe an inch shorter than the STI bar (due to the widebody). So it all fits, but the endlinks are at a big angle. With the correct bar they are basically straight, but with the wrong bar they were at like 30-45 degrees. I decided I wanted to get the correct part, but then the last one was sold as I was in the process of getting mine swapped out. So I'm back to stock for now.

Ben.... I used the power of Google for you. You still might want to call first so you don't get an 08 - 10 setup.

RSD was the first place I checked. It says it's out of stock right on the page. I think their ETA is incorrect though. If they do get it in before everyone else, I'll just order from them. The other places I have never heard of.

Circuit Motorsports has it on their page. Doesn't say out of stock, so I'm going to give them a call.

Added an AEM Digital UEGO Wideband O2 Gauge in the center cubby:



I had it lined up straight on and centered, but then I angled it more towards the driver:



I'll try to get a better picture later. I hard wired a serial cable to the gauge, but I'm still in the process of trying to get it to log with RomRaider. Having computer issues at the moment.

Once you get the E85 tune, do you have to stick to E85 or can you go back to regular gas? Did you have to do anything special besides the tune to start using E85?

If you are on an E85 tune you cannot run pump gas. If you have an AccessPort or a Tactrix cable in the car you could have an E85 map and a pump gas map, but you would have to completely empty the thank and re-flash a new map each time you want to switch.

Even on a completely stock third gen WRX you would need to upgrade the fuel pump and the injectors. Other than that you don't really need much. An E85 tune can generally net you a 50WHP increase over pump gas (due to increases in timing and boost levels.).

Car looks amazing. It's like the Subaru poster child. Looks like perfect paint even after the abuse it took in that mud

How much time does it take to put on and take off those mud flaps.
I would like to put them on just for the winter when I would put my winter tires on and then take them off when I take off the winter tires since I think those(any) mudflaps look hideous on the 11 sedan - IMO.
Do you see any problem with putting them on and then taking them off once a year every year ? Would stuff get lose or break in the process of doing it so "often" ?
Thanks

Which is amazing for black Subaru paint, maybe they stole some paint from Toyota or something. Awesome car and glad you caught the mod bug like the rest of us.
