Dropped off some JDM awesomeness with Taylor over at Element Automotive.
Hoping to bring the car in this Saturday for install.

Also installed my new OEM roof rails and Subaru snowboard rack.

So last night I was brought one step closer to my final look.
A few weeks ago I installed my brand new Process West FMIC. Such a high quality piece, installed in a breeze, and looks amazing.
I did this so I could achieve this:

Thanks, Dave! Means a bit coming from you since you were on the fence about the GV chassis.

I sure am, Robby, just need a few more things before it's complete. But I'm slowly getting there for sure.

Dude that thing is sweet, s206 rear lip all the way. But really your a fan boy and overselling the Sti, don't get me wrong it is definately the superior car and I can understand ppl not wanting to spend $50k on a Subaru that is not that much better than a $27k wrx. I mean really look at the specs, on 11+ models it literally only has a lower l-arm on the suspension that's it. Your really paying for the dccd/6 speed. Everything else can be easily applied to the wrx through aftermarket. Now I know I'm gonna get flamed for this, but I drove both and unless your tracking the car the Sti is just not worth it, especially a limited. Your talking BMW/Audi/Benz money there. Just my opinion, and the elitist mentality is really old. I've seen many base wrx mop an Sti on the streets. Anyway sweet car bro

Lol cool opinion bro.


At the end of the day, when you go beyond Stage 2 on a WRX, your tranny is at a risk. Whereas on an STi, Not so much. With a WRX or an STi, Internals will be a problem in the higher power ranges. But that applies to everything.

STi > WRX

I saw this STi on Craigslist. The bank was trying to sell it... Hope the OP got into something else he liked.

Yeah, the car got sold awhile back. New owner ran into problems.

I have something I love. And I'll be placing an order for a 2015 as soon as possible.


Months later and this car is still making thread bumps haha.

I've owned both and would never go back to a WRX, tracking or not. You get what you pay for. Nuff said.

Now that says something.
