Exactly what i was thinking, red with sti written on them, do you know how many inches should it flow down. i dont want it to be too low they could very well come off when backing up.

I have heard great things about the prosport premium series gauges. my friend uses anyother series in his EVO 8 that work great.

What is up with the aluminum recirc tube? That's pretty nifty can you post a few more close up pics of that I would like to see where it's plumbed and how.

Africa is pretty huge, if you hadn't noticed. That's like saying I wouldn't own a Sti in America, because they get stolen on a daily basis in Newark lol

Like I pointed out before that dump tube from the recirc valve, and 3 port electronic boost control solenoid are definitely foreign parts. You could be having some serious fun with the boost system if the car was never tuned for that 3 port ebcs. Guess you'll have to wait and see.

I live near Newark =[ haha.

Awesome looking car. Post better pics when it arrives!

Also, I'm surprised no one has tried to talk you out of the pro sports. There are a lot of mixed reviews on here for them. Just look them up in a search.

ive been to and around newark, didn't know it was that bad,

Well am still searching about the gauges and stuff, yes someone did mention about downfall of prosports. i actually emailed them for help to choose and get the right ones that i need.

lol that was funny all the guy told me was the ones am looking for are not prosprots there actually Ati's.
So much for customer relation,

Am not buying prosports even if someone recommends it now.

I had a set.

They are totally custom though, cut to fit and they do not come with any hardware.
