Thanks for all the kind words, but any input on the header situation? I can't see why everyone is going out and paying the money for a HFC
Give it a try and take clear detailed photos of what you do

Aw come on! Well the theory is sound, did you go with headers yet? I feel like all your shots are front end!

I think he's saying the Ralli Sport header is awesome lol. But, I do think $500 to make a little noise is ridiculous. Your idea would probably work. Only thing stopping me from going out and doing is if I ruin my OEM header I'd be screwed!!! But, I really think that idea would work and be cheap.

Yeah I just meant that in general there's a reason something cost more and it might be worth dishing out extra cash for it.

Well,since three of my struts are blown, I've decided that I would like to upgrade the suspension. Thinking of pulling the trigger on (probably going to get flamed on this one) RaceLand coilovers. Reason being is that it would be my first set of coilovers and i would like to familiarize myself with this suspension platform. It also is in reasonable budget range and would give me an idea on what i would like when i upgrade to a better coilover. As of now all I would like to do is go low with adjustability in height. Daily driven and the occasional spirited drive. Any input would be appreciated.

Btw what happened to the silver hatch on RaceLands? Any updates?

Well what I see myself doing would be taking the header pipe that connects to the catback off the car and bringing it to a shop, having them measure and cut for the new headers and weld a flange, then it would be essentially the stock setup but with new headers and a cat pipe flange. That would appear to be bulletproof ish right?

I've got no experience with racelands so I can't help there :/

Personally I really liked the privats better. But we all know we can't stick to a particular setup forever lol

Where did you order your BC's? I tried going to their site but didn't come across an order section....I'm guessing they just sell from distributors ?

Go find a vendor here on nasioc, their usually the best way to go. Vendors give the best price and sometimes shipping will be included. Id recommend Boston Motorsports, they have given great customer service for everything Ive purchased from them!

Agreed, support the NASIOC vendors! ISC's from Import image Racing are $875 shipped.
They're similar to the BC BR's but larger bodies and are serviced in Massachusetts at AJW

They weren't cutting it for me, I needed more from wheels and these are helping my car add keep me in this one!

I got my regular height bc's from Import Image, and this set a local helped me out and I think he went there as well.

Import Image Racing is great! You very rarely find a bad review on them. Very personable, helpful, fast shipping I wont buy from another vendor if I dont have to.

They got me as low as a wanted, regulars you can't tuck rear and the bottom threads hit the c boot in the front if you're low. The extreme low fixes these issues. I have 8k8k rates and the lows are the same ride quality as the regular.
Don't be scared they were great with me and many many others! They don't stock the extreme lows so don't worry about the wait it's completely normal!

Never heard of it actually lol.
It's actually an 09 wrx bumper that has been painted completely, the flares are usually just black but the body shop was sent that instead and I had the whole thing painted.

Want a miata so bad!

My 1992 mazda spec miata is by far the best handling street car I have ever driven hands down! Even though it only uses the mazdaspeed kit which uses bilsteins and i forget the springs but man is it fast. Plus you can easily build one for less than 10grand Spec Miata racing is also one of the best budget-racing series their is lol.
As for the subaru topic, has anyone purchased this lip yet? Ive been contemplating of whether to purchase this
