I would too I just can't find the time. I've been trying to install a catless uppipe for quite some time too but the timing belt is now overdue and I worry about waiting. Dealer in kzoo wanted $600 for timing belt which seemed ridiculous.

A timing belt/water pump/pullies from Gates is like 310, so 300 for labor (three hours worth) seems fair.

Call Oakos and Subie Guys.

I would vote Oakos as your best bet it can't hurt to call them up and ask.

$80-100 a hour for labor is still fair and would put you around $600

I lost a tire, something gashed in the side wall, so I just replaced them all today. I still have 3 Blizzaks, 215/55/16 with 10-15k on them. Figured maybe try selling them if anyone would be interested.

Price? They aren't the right size, but if they're cheap I'll use them on my Driftaru.

Anyone want to trade some wheels... Getting tired of these on my car. Drag DR44's 17x8 +42, they are a gold with machined lip, but have black plasti dip on the spokes now (8coats). I'm looking for anything but stock... Unless they are 04 5x100 Sti stocks... Must be 17's obviously unless you have 18's with new snows... Lmk what you guys may have. Can send pics..

Yeah, he's a great guy. I bought my black car from him and he delivered it to me.

He has lots of things I want, but nothing I need or can afford at the time.
