Cleaned my engine, finally. It needed it, and it worked like a charm (scrubbing bubbles that is)

I've debated getting the hitch for my BRZ. It's only 10 lbs, but does require some cutting of the bumper crash beam. It's hidden, though, which is cool.

I got new wheels (99% sure I'm sticking with these for now).

Yeah the ride is pretty floaty. I promised I wouldn't abuse the tires, so it's been interesting being forced to drive like a sane person for once. Kinda like having my wings clipped.

Not going to lie, I'm really feeling this wheels on the BRZ.

I thought it might. I didn't think of it at the time but I have some summer tires you can have, if you want to swap them on before you get your winters.

Has anyone done a 5 manual tran swap to a 6 speed transmission? I think my car is putting out to much power for my transmission and I heard the 6 speeds hold up better. Never have drag raced my car because I'm scared of dropping my transmission.

6-speed Aisin transmission is much nicer than the 5-speed. If you can get your hands on one then do it.

From what I recall, the 2008-2014 WRX/STI chassis were built from 2005-2009 Legacy chassis, so you'll want to research if your LGT mates most easily to those years, although I believe the transmission has been the same for the STI since its debut anyways.
