I like my BBS in gunmetal, they just don't stand out as much as I would like. I have a few different wheels in mind, just need to save up for them.

And I figured you didn't pay near that. Best I have seen them for "new" was RSD black friday for ~$700. I still couldn't stomach that for sideskirts.

Needless to say though, I love them on your car.

I was not aware of the sale price they offered. Rallysport can sell them for any price, as they are the only place in the states that consistantly offers them. However, my point is that Subaru/STi lists these as an option to overseas owners for apprx. $700. For the quality, its reasonable to pay higher prices here.

All of our justifications differ when modding.

The tie down is alright, but never interested me. I'd consider the real STi strut bar that the tie down mocks.

Entire exhaust finished

I keep coming back to this as it is making me more than excited to run the T2's on my car after winter. What is your current alignment and dampening set up at? I'm just curious. I'm sure mine will be different as I'm running stiffer springs with the hatch.

Also any write up on painting the brembos? I really like that color with your overall build.

Also the vinyl'd black roof is growing on me, may consider it in the summer.

Keep the pictures coming!

Compression and rebound stay close to full stiffness. Minor adjustments to the rebound settings for leisure drives are made if truly needed. Alignment camber specs are -1.8 F / -2 R.

Use the settings the RCE has them initially set to, then start the analysis from there. Preferences and supporting suspension modifications will determine what you ultimately enjoy/ prefer.

The calipers (OE gold), pads, rotors, and lines are straight from Brembo. Purchased new. Unless you want a color that Brembo offers, nothing wrong with a used set.

The idea with the roof is to have the VG appear as if it is a designed body panel/ support between the pillars.

Inspected the underside of the car in preparation for GroupN motor & trans mounts, and diff. bushings.

Going over the plan for what's to come with the car.

By far my favorite sedan on here, you executed the perfect form/function GV sedan. Props.


*edit*

How are you liking that Moroso AOS? Was the install a bitch fitting it with the Process West TMIC? I hear it's a PITA if you have any intercooler bigger then stock.

The Moroso catch cans are great. Each can contains media and all the fittings and hoses are quality.The bracket(painted black, comes unpainted) did have to be modified to bring the harness closer to the strut tower for clearance. Any adjustments are no reason to avoid the setup as the install stayed simple. Nothing to stress about, it's somewhat versatile.

There is a contact that I use located overseas. None of the US distributors offer the S206 exhaust or Subaru Meter Set: gauges. Most smaller items/accessories are available in the states and are easily attainable.

Take it easy on that STi... building motors every few months shouldn't be in the script. Chat me up anytime.

I understand. However, my setup is a unique variant of the available options and it pulls ofF what I wanted well. The VG is to appear as an intended body panel/support that integrates the two pillars. IMO a black ABS VG on gloss black and black ABS on SWP roof looks more out of place. If I hadn't liked it everything on top would be SWP.

Nice! Just wondering, is it a true flex setup or just does E85 or gas(as in either the two, but nothing in between)?

I kind of regret looking at the engine bay pic, because now I want that oil cap! lol. I guess tax season isn't too far out.

The term "Flexed" is in reference to a few aspects of the car.

This is not full flex-fuel setup. The standalone ECUs that can manage that are doing it well though. This is occasionally driven so it's not an inconvenience having separate tunes.
