Does the SCCA down here do RallyX, or is it just AutoX? I know the CNY and finger lakes ones put them on, but did not see anything for them on the SNY(?) site.

Lol, It was a joke because this "winter" has been a waste of my snow tires. I figured that if I say I should take them off that maybe we would actually get snow... Not likely!

We will have to have a meet some time soon. What steering issues are you having? I would have to say that there is only one shop that I know of, which is Precision Auto. The owner there knows what he is talking about, and if you do have a problem with some of their work he will take care of it... if anyone else wants to chime in with some local shops, that would be great. I love the 08 lgt's! What all do you have done to it?

The SNY region doesn't host any Rally-x's, if we want to go to one we just go to the other regions. The SNY region mainly hosts Auto-x and they are getting into Road Rally's. They also have a couple times they go to the Glen for track days.

Etinder, well as i was trying to get the right front on, the axle popped out and i lost the snap ring at the end, got a new one put it on, my dads friend put the axle back in but but seemed to have done it the long way dissembling everything, I mean everything. So long story short the car pulls to the left pretty good, had the matthews subaru check out the brakes cause i thought it was a stuck caliper which they said it wasnt. Soooooo, im pretty sure than when he assmebled everything back together something went wrong.

Sounds like he loosened the outer tierod, and now the alignment is poo. Could be other stuff but hard to say without looking for it.

The Fozzy is going down this week for wiesco pistons, manely rods, acl bearings etc refreshing my heads and a slight Port and Polish on them.

Trying to keep it simple as the wrx has my hands full...

So does it pull when you are driving or when you are braking? My guess is alignment if its while driving. I would take it in to Precision and see what they say. Don't use matthews.

Its ok, still not done. needs work but its hard to find the time. should have my KW varient 3 coilovers rebuilt with custom valving. Have to swap in another 4.44 rear diff I put a cusco differential. I had it setup 2 way, but rebuilt it 1.5 way last year but didnt have a case to put it in or time. Im building a swirlpot for the trunk with a second aeromotive fuel pump.

A moderate break-in for about 1500 miles then on to E85.

FYI... Fuel Injector Clinics, Z series 1680cc topfeed injectors have been recalled because they were having issues when running pumpgas. You could imagine I wasnt very happy. We have sent in a few from at work for testing.

well I was going to get an invidia catless but some people are saying CNT is just as good and their catted dp is only $350. I'm skeptical about cnt though.

people say catless can give you boost creep issues so that is a concern too.

If you want to go catted I would suggest getting a pipe with the cat as far away from the turbo so it gives the air flow to balance out and flow through the cat easier. If you want to go catless, then invidia is a great brand. I picked up a barely used Harman Motive Catted that is Grimmspeed heat coated for only $400. Catted costs more, but gives you piece of mind that you still have a cat. Catless is cheaper, but I don't see it affecting power gains until you are a high hp car.

downpipes are for sissy's, I dont even run a exhaust! jk.

I install alot of invidia downpipes and like them for the most part. Ive worked on a few cars with the CNT downpipe and it was "ok" IMO.

I'm just not so sure about the cast iron to stainless connection on the CNT compared to a full stainless steel pipe. Plus the cat is right next to the turbo.

That is correct that it's either cobb or harman motive. The cat's that are on the car are not high flow cat's, so it wouldn't be the same still.

Are there any shops that stock real fixed back "racing" seats (FIA homologated)? I want to try out a bunch before I drop the money on 2.

Thanks. I was planning to hit all those that the CNY region is putting on, but wasn't sure if there were any right around here.

I will be selling my Sti. V7 pink springs and struts with adjustable top hats.

Anyone have any idea what I should ask for them? They're in great shape.

Thanks

For all you 08+'s I have a set of FastWRX color changing blinkers for sale. I just picked them up, but they aren't the look I was hoping for.
