Well ordered my trans mount and cross member bushings. Also broke down and picked up a nameless catback with 4 in mufflers and no resonator.

I didnt really want it but i have it and will get used to it unless i can remove it and it has no markings left behind.


Nice car by the way i love mine!
When you start loading and unloading things in the back, you will be thankful for the rear bumper cover.

I have so many options on mine its close to the price of a limited.

I was planning on doing this but wanted to drive my car for a bit before I made the decision. Should be picking mine up sometime in the next 10 days as its en route to the dealer. For a relatively cheap mod I've heard good things. How long did the instal take you?

Well the master plan has changed again. I got a pay incease at work. Now the plan is to run a full stage 2 setup with a Nameless turbo back and a Process west TMIC and then get a protune. All of this will of course come when there is accesport support for the 13's.


In the mean time i will be doing my swaybars/endlinks and all the bushings/inserts for the drivetrain as well as the remainder of the interior/exterior items I want to pick up. Also just ordered up the 3/16" Primitive Body Armor Kit

Pardon a question from a real newbie, but what difference do you feel with the changes to those bushings? I've got a 2013 WRX base hatch, the only option installed is the Subaru shifter kit.

The wheel locks are a joke. Wheel thieves are expecting them and come prepared, they just snap off the lug and stud in seconds. I told my dealer to put on the lugs and keep the wheel locks. Plus if you have a flat out in BFE; you have to FIND the lug key and hope it works if the nut is too tight etc. I pay insurance to replace any wheels that are stolen...

Major difference with those bushings in drivetrain slop as well as firmer crisper shifts. These combined with the TiC Super Shift Kit(Still and upgrade from what you have now) make shifting perfect IMO.

if your still plannin on gettin the cobb accessport, id re-think that and go with open source. you can prob do a bit of search about the cobb accessport vs open source(running torqued performance tunes). a lot of the 3g guys have switched over to o.s due to cobb's tunes being crappy.

just a suggestion

Not trying to impress anyone just like my car to look legit when I have to open the hood.


I paid $24k even before tax. No options installed. Doing them on my own.

Yesterday I did my Rear 22mm Swaybar kit and rear diff mount inserts.

Today I did my Grimmspeed MC Brace and the H9 mod.

Overall love the feel of the car now. Astronomical difference in handling.

Now just waiting on my kartboy endlinks and I will install the front swaybar and the steering rack bushings.
