That should tow great. I've done a lot of towing with my FXT, up to about 3500 lbs and a couple cross country trips. I'd bet with the extra power, brakes and stiffer suspension the STI would be even better.

changed out the clutch slave cylinder today. yesterday the clutch pedal stuck to the floor and I was fubar'd trying to get home. I had to start the car in gear (awkward) and then i could shift into second at like 750 rpm.

anyway the slave cylinder must have been on its last legs for a while because the car just shifts smoother now and the clutch engagement is better.

It was good until it went to the shop for a new bumper. Needless to say they didn't put the bolts in and just used self tappers.

Reinstalled my stock airbox and reflashed my ECU yesterday so I could go play in the puddles, as the front portion of my fender liners are gone.

WELL!!! KB outrigger (comfort) bushings installed!

was really easy

before with plate off.


during with upper and lower and bushings grease all over it.


final look


The feel is amazing! much more stiff and solid feel in the rear. and i thought the rear strut was amazing! PSSHHH

as for NVH (noise, vibration, harshness)....well....I have solid motor mounts so i feel that and nothing else.
