Since the 09+ WRXs got huge power bump, the WRX has had a faster 0-60 time dude to the 5spd gearing vs 6spd gearing. An STi has to make 3 shifts while the WRX only had to do 2.

Around a track though is where the STi shines.

No. The STi has the VF48 "traditional" mounted turbo while the 09+ has the Legacy mounted VF52

Mmmmmm.... $$$ on authentic replacements! I'm looking at kartboy for the oil cap, only because of a group buy offering, though. Not really sure how useful an aftermarket oil cap is besides bling, but there must be something else to it...

All bling baby. I'm looking at the black Cobb cap since it has the most inconspicuous logo on it, and the black finish is amazing.

Doesn't it look a lot better in person?! I still need to break the heat gun out and adjust the SPT trim though.

Oh laaaaawd! That is the best news ever!
That means my tire's are done/should be done soon.

I think the only way one could have a non-aesthetic purpose is the Grimmspeed "cool-touch", although I've never experienced a scalding oil cap before. Perhaps for a race car.


Watch the video.

I seen't that video! Pretty funny.

I remember reading in the description for one of the oil caps was that it helped with lowering overall pressure. I think it was the STI cap for the BRZ or one of the other ones for the BRZ.

Anywho, Kyle, you need snow tires, son.

Davin, donate some wheels.

Hung out with the conte crew while I waited for my car. Always good to see the likes of Jake, Edgar, and Vern!
Great, quick service done right.

I recently had Element Automotive install my footwell lighting kit.
Bought the oem kit from Vern over at Conti, great service as always.

Taylor took care of the install and I could have not been happier. He made quick work of the kit, making sure the harness was secured with the supplied zip ties, plus a few he added in just to get a cleaner look. He even made sure to retain my oem courtesy lighting found in STi's.
there is no doubt all my work is going to be done through the team over at Element Automotive. They will be installing my next round of goodies here soon.
