Teh value, is good.
190 is good for me now, as I don't or dare not to do any heavy duty work on my car but my dream is Snap-On, not gonna happen till I got my own garage

Air Canada Vacations has a deal, $599 + $150 taxes/fees for airfare and hotel Vancouver to Honolulu. September only. I have no relation with Air Canada Relations, just ran across the deal, thought I would pass it along.

I payed a pretty penny for my tools, bought a craftsmen set. Then I've got a ~95 piece mastercraft for my trunk (which came with my tool box). Speaking of deals Subaru Gen has some not to bad ones going on right now

https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/specials.php?page=1

I've got a gc8 so there isn't a lot for me hehe. But the 2002-2007 rubber impreza floor mats for 39.95 US is way better then the price I payed for mine in canada LOL.

I subscribe to the hockeygiant mailing list
they have a deal a day
some deals are silly good - hockey jerseys for 15$ and so on
if you play hockey, its worth signing up for their mailing list

and I ordered some stuff from them a year or two ago, and they were really good to deal with!

It's a STI V3 box and just because it's 4.44 doesn't mean it's better ratios than the V2 or USDM 6 speed.

The RA boxes are really the best. A tall first into tight second and third. Not even the US six speed does this.

Note the 5th gear on the RA box is the same as the 4th on the USWRX box.

The USWRX box basically sucks wind.
