Lol I agree about the music. Oh well I can cut another edit sometime if I feel like it. I sold my ppg trans and am still rocking the BONE STOCK 5spd with 154,XXX on it. Maybe it has something to do with driving style...

pretty sure that there are several folks on here that you could give your tires to and get them back in 24 hours with most of the tread gone...

yeah and yinzer actually has a car specifically designed for turning dollars and tires into smoke.

in a similar vein.. i found like 5 different cast turbo manifolds for M5x motors shek... they're all under 500 bucks. no need to bother with ebay.

I know. If only I had an OBDI E36... There's a EEPROM replacement available for that ECU that lets you tune stuff in realtime. It's pretty sweet. Miller W.A.R. chip.

Default Service departments

So I checked the reviews forum but there wasn't too much current info... Is there a service department here in town that most folks think is the best? My family is from Youngstown so I've used Boardman a few times, but I haven't used any Pittsburgh dealerships so far.

Thanks!

Are these the same D-specs TIC and everyone else sells?

Tokico DSP-10 D-Spec 16-Way Shock for Subaru WRX : Amazon.com : AutomotiveTokico DSP-10 D-Spec 16-Way Shock for Subaru WRX : Amazon.com : Automotive

Killer pricing, and I need to order something today.

Edit: Confirmed, they are leftover ones from before the price change.

with regards to aftermarket seats/brackets, do they typically have a stock location, or is there potentially a setup that will give me a bit more leg room?

When I had the aftermarket seat in my STi, it bolted into the stock location, but it did give me more leg and head room.

They typically sit back a little bit more. I have a set of new sparco r700 looking for a new home.

Shoot me some info, and I'm an aftermarket seat n00b, so I'm not sure how the rails and stuff work, I guess I would need a whole new set of hardware to connect the seats to the car?

Recline is a requirement, obviously, it's such a hard thing to actually test without buying and installing, if anyone has seats in an 08+ that they think increases leg and headroom, please let me know.

Hey Kids,
A friend of mine's family is holding an auction for their auto repair equipment left over from when they retired. Thought some of you might be interested. Next Wednesday at 6pm.
