Yea I know. I've tried to find it. But the giant APS tmic makes it hard to see any etching on the turbo. lol Once I figure out where I will be doing the wrenching maybe I'll at least get the TMIC off so I can verify and then go from there.

if it is a vf34, i'd pick up sti pinks or 06 wrx blues, a walboro fuel pump and a tune. oh, and a set of plugs and a new fuel filter. if you got an accessport, you can use an off the shelf tune. aside from the fuel filter and plugs, you can find everything used with low mileage in the classifieds, and you'd have twice the power you have now for ~$700!

I know it's a pain but just remove the TMIC and its right there on the top.

That Prodrive decal up front couldn't not be any cooler. Its an actual authentic Prodrive accessory with a part number and everything not to mention the color matches my wheel color.

What are you going to do about the emblem? USDM ones don't fit.

The "anticipation" shot looks great!

Was racking my mind to see if I recall seeing the "Prodrive" decal on other bumpers and then I saw that it was an authentic option (and I wasn't going crazy, overlooking it each time).
Love the extra detail and the whole car. Can't wait for the official release!

Its funny but the decal was an after thought I just happened to snag a couple of them. Originally being from the same schools of though Tommy and myself wanted to leave them off to keep the front end more clean. After putting it on though it just feels right

Alright so I tried to look today again, can't see it enough still. BUT I can see that it says "IHI turbo" which makes it at least SOMETHING out of the VF series right?
