Haha, I'm considering that same mod myself.

I don't know though, I'd still like to build up my 240 like I originally planned, but every time it snows or get's icy out AWD beckons me.

Winslow, you guys did answer most all of my questions. I'm still on the fence right now, seeing as the Legacy N/A version of the exhaust is only mild steel , not stainless like the WRX one. Let me know the last date you guys can get orders in and I'll let you know by then.

BTW, got my sticker ready.

AKSubie: The stickers are going to be here soon. We have been putting a bunch of them on because of the enormous response to our discount offer. A stainless exhaust would be nice but mild steel is a sutable substitute. Just think about how long a OE muffler system lasts. It's made out of mild steel and withstands the harsh weather. I think the MRT full exhaust is comparable in price to getting a custom exhaust from a local muffler shop plus it has MRT racing experience built in.

Get your www.akautogear sticker and get member pricing!!! Winslow

Yeah, guess your right Winslow. My Honda exhaust (down in MO) lasted around 130,000 miles with all the salt and crap they put on the roads down there.

I PM'd Kris.

Current Mods:
uh, None...

Planned Mods:
1. Silencer removal
2. Short throw shifter
3. Undecided which mod after that point...

I'd like to get peoples opinion on window tinting...
Who is the best in town?
What is the best option to go for?

I've seen some really BAD tint jobs - and that has always turned me off from doing so. But if it is possible to get a good job done in town - I'd be all over that...

Thumbs up

Sunshades, the same building with Perfectionist. They have tinted about 3 of my cars so far. I just went there today to have some bubble fixed and it was no problem. I had Shades of Competition tint a 2000 RS and they put 2 different shades of tint on the rear window and said that was normal. I think they have done other members WRX's here also.

Question silencer mod

people who did the silencer mod:
what did you notice when you first drove the car with the silencer off? are there any problems that it may cause?

AK_2002_WRX: We have a TurboXS type-H RFL, TurboXS HP Boost controller, and STi replica hood scoop on the way if you want to check it out. We also have an INjen and an MRT intake in stock along with an M2 uppipes.

I think the first thing people noticed with the silencer mod is the sound of the stock BOV. I have to say, that with the AEM intake and GFB BOV the sound is incredible. I thought just the BOV was fun. With both of them, they put the smile back on my face.

MrJoe: I'm anal about tint jobs and I look for every imperfection. This makes my opinion very critical. I had Shades of Competition do my 2001 GMC Sierra extended cab. They matched the front windows to the stock tint on the rear three windows. They did this last winter. By the way, getting your windows tinted during the winter sucks because the water that is trapped between the tint and the glass freezes. It eventually evaporates but the extended cure time was a PITA. They did alright. Then, I had them do the WRX in 30% all the way around. I looked at the tint and the job they did was horrible. There was creases in the tint where the tint had folded over. It also looked like they rubbed their cat on my windows then applied the tint. Also, they soaked the interior and didn't bother to wipe up the mess. Their excuse was that they have a new installer. I didn't like that excuse because their whole business is to do tint! The WRX is difficult to tint because the door windows don't have a jamb to hide in. The windows rest against the seal on the body of the car when the door is closed. So, every opening and closing of the door is a possible moment that may affect your tint. It isn't that bad. I'm over exaggerating but I would go to someone else such as SunShades. Winslow
