I think the only person to run 255's is Colin or that other dude with the chameleon rota's from NY (username is blanking me ATM)

Just punch the gas and flick it to produce a drift. Don't expect to keep the drift going as our cars lack the power to do so

Plenty of power to drift in snow though!

Colin? Dude from NY?

I remember Greg saying he had 255. I know DutchOven had 255s on his narrow hatch. His wheels were +45 too. But I just noticed that he's running 3mm spacers. I may be in the market for some 3mm spacers.


For the drifting, if the car is set-up right, you can get some good lift-oversteer. But it's pretty hard to maintain.

Are whiteline front sway bars the only ones that will fit on the 2.5i?

IIRC, Whiteline and Rallitek were the only companies to make 2.5i specific front sways. I want to say there was another company, but I can't remember who.

Not on the front. Exhaust is in the way.

Thanks. How was the install of the front sway. I have read people saying they had to drop the headers to get the old one out and new one in. Also how much of a difference can you feel with the upgraded front sway?

Install was easy and it was the biggest difference I noticed going from stock front and no rear sway to the Eibach kit, turn in is was more responsive and the overall feel is just right... Look into Eibach that have a front and rear kit very well priced, or wait a little as if I get a new job I will most likely be getting rid of my car and getting something newer and better on gas and I'll be selling some of my stuff

+1, but you could bend part of the exhaust (I think the shield) to make it fit.

Are you sure? I know the rear fits but the front requires slightly modification.

I bought the sways as if I was buying for a wrx, only problem I had was it hit the heat shield when going in reverse or turning car on other then that it went right in
