Come by the crib sometime. You live within throwing distance. Plus you could pick up some wrx wheels too

It's HDR, photography trick that uses both over and underexposed frames and merges them together, makes for some really cool shots!

You guys really need to get the jdm sti seats to compliment your ej207.
I got my v9 seats installed last night and they are so much better than the usdm seats its laughable! We really get screwed on parts....ej205 or ej255/7...crappy seats, crappy 5 speed, and a slew of other parts we don't get.......anyone know why we don't get better parts?

I know what HDR is.. was actually wondering if it was from an iPhone or actual camera.

Because we aren't Japanese? Is the jdm 5speed for the wrx better?

Seats are because on avg Americans are fatter. I find the v7 seats I've been in are a bit too tight to daily for me personally.

Yeah, we do get short handed on the cool stuff... it sucks some times.

I really want a SH forester sti... don't even get a manual xt here.

Mine are the regular blue STi seats - only difference between v8 and v9 is the v8 uses a smooth material on the bolsters and the v9 uses a "ridged" material.
If I were any fatter they would be too tight - I'm 5'11" and 175 - fit me like a glove. I"m glad I didn't go v7 - i'm afraid they would be too small.

I understand USDM market is "fatter" - but why can't they make the same contours on just a larger platform? USDM STI seats are just flat seats - the JDM's are contoured - big difference.

Back to ej207's - when are you guys hitting full boost on your vr37's?

Just want to see how it compares to single scroll's, and my own vf34.

From what I understand the gearing on their 5 spd is better but it's not any stronger.

I was looking for a shell for a while But I had no luck but I ended up finding a stupid deal on a yellow Wrx with a V7 swap in San Diego and so I bought it and drove it back to ct.

What is the general opinion on exhaust gaskets (pre-turbo) that have been crushed into place but not run more than 2 minutes? Re-usable? Things are stupid expensive to be replacing...

Thanks!

I've re-used them after about 400 miles before and it was fine.
