I've ripped my passenger rear flap off three times now. All from backing in to curbs.

Hardware stayed in place each time.

Nice!

Also, Gorilla flaps don't rip off. I've backed into curbs and snow banks with mine and still going strong... My driving might need some work tho after typing this haha

Just finished this pita today. Complete diy from scratch. Cut out the perforated aluminum and everything. I think it turned out good. I'll probably end up replicating them and get em powder coated. Just used flat black rattle can for now.

My friend and I Installed into my '08 WRX:
Whiteline steering rack bushings
Torque Solution motor mounts
Torque Solution transmission mount
Torque Solution pitch stop

Not too long ago, I installed the Torque Solution short shifter and pivot bushing.

With the engine mounts and new transmission mount, the short shifter became much easier to move. I also noticed that the transmission sits a lot lower. So much noise in the cabin now, it sounds like I have an aftermarket exhaust. There is quite a bit of vibration now in the cabin. Feels like a butt and back massage. It just sounds mean.

I still have the rear differential bushing inserts to do this Saturday.

I finally got my Nameless exhaust delivered and installed. I got the axle back with 5" mufflers. OMG my car sounds SOOOO good now. It's probably even quieter than stock at idle, but it now has that subaru rumble ( WW2 Fighter plane style ) and really starts to roar when I get on it.

I'm an older guy, and wanted something that made the right noises but not too obnoxious. This setup is amazing, just perfect, with zero highway drone.

It took about 5 weeks to arrive after I ordered, and like most people I was getting a little impatient, but it was worth the wait. Top quality stuff, and just what I wanted. I haven't been this pleased with a car part purchase in a long time.

This made me chuckle.
My uncle bought a nameless exhaust for his Sti hatch and had a very similar reaction.

Replaced a failed neutral position switch on my 03 wrx... night and day difference when accelerating. I'm so glad I got that figured out.

Installed the temp sensor for the compass pack, wrapped and installed the UEL. The car is still as silent as a whisper.

Wife got this for me for my valentines day gift. A Saab 92x 1:43 scale model she found on ebay. Even though it's not blue like mine, I still love it!!
