I got a steal of a deal for $545shipped for my koni's. Also keep on the lookout, I know one vendor has a sale every year just on koni's. I chose Rce yellows for springs and absolutely love them (~0.8" drop). Both of which I got from Boston Motorsports (the best vendor on nasioc btw : D). If you buy more stuff they can also work out a deal for you. Also, consider the price of donor struts if you want to keep your oem setup as a backup for winter ($100-250).

Spending 1500 on a nice setup just to have it replaced due to salt and winter damage doesn't sound like fun. Different story if I lived in Florida.
Tarmac 2's...lifetime warranty and one of the best out there.

Changed the sparkplugs out today at 34k miles, (owners manual recommends at 30k).
I changed to the NGK FR5AP-10 where as the stock ones are NGK FR5AP-11 (slightly different gap, .039" which is in spec and .044" which is stock and out of stock; still doesnt make sense to me.)
Here is where I got them from and the short reason why to get these rather than the stock ones :

Here is what the new and old sparkplugs look like:

Keep in mind I have a hybrid intake w/ K&N airfilter.

Interesting. How was the fit for you? Was it even noticeable?

The fit was the same as the stock spark plugs, the gap is the only difference.
I didn't notice a difference really to be honest. However, the car hesitated to idle but I'm pretty sure its because of my hybrid intake . After a couple of more driving sessions, the MAF re-adjusted itself, so its getting smoother and actually idling when not in gear.

I hear you on the bad idle, I have to reset the ECU often due to a pesky cel. Every time I reset, bad idle for 20km of city driving. Throttle response is at zero and some days I'd rather have an auto because of it.

Speaking of which, anyone ever thought of a cheap way of getting into to subaru turbo world with a used lgt? 250hp stock and wagon of course.

Thinking about selling my car, I lost my job and have no way to pay for it. The job market in the area sucks.

So...

You guys have seen my car, right?



Notice the top of the windshield and the bottom of the rear door.


Notice the license plate... (AKA Serious Business)


If you bust out your google-fu you will find http://www.facebook.com/NjeniusGrafix



Yeah... I ****ing made those.

I figured that this post would have been enough of a hint.
