Im just wondering if a Bayson R STi lip would attach to the bottom of the other said lip. So I can appear to be MoaR LoWs than I really am.
Yeah I'm just picky lol.
I'm planning to do or attempt that in the future but I have a lot of things planned lol. I think you would have to get side skirts and the add on side skirt lip to make everything flow lol

Looks like a cool idea, but its not worth the money imo. I'd do it if everything was ~$100 though.

Ditto, I have an auto and I use the Sports Shift mode full-time, but I won't do it. What with the gear ratios being so tall and the laggy-shifting it's not worth it from a performance standpoint, even on the track. Would be fairly unique on a USDM impreza though.

Big time, 1st will pull to about 38mph, 2nd to ~70, 3rd to ~103, 4th (hypothetically) to maybe 145...
There are some sweet spots (with header, cams & a tune anyway), overtaking from 50-70 is grin inducing, but if you're not above ~4000rpm and need to go WOT.......

Yeah those are long. Pros and cons I suppose. I'd still rather have my 5 speed.

I hear ya. I have my eye on a dsg trans for a test drive just to see if it really is the next best thing to a 5spd.

Been tuned for over a year. Zero issues, car runs incredibly smoothly. Mikey got the most out of the mods whilst keeping the tune safe. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

My plans are exactly your mod list (tune cams headers) except the order In which I do them is scattered. Did you install cams yourself?
