Hey guys. Just thought I'd chime in and say hello. Im Brad Russell, service manager at Turn In Concepts. Im guessing some of you may have heard of us. Im originally from Kalamazoo and make a lot of trips home. One of these weekends over summer i'd like to come out to a meet and see the cars. I didnt realize there were so many Subies cruising around GR.

To be honest, I'm not sure. I think a handful of times during the year, but there are also local auto and rally-cross events throughout the area/year as well. There is also an actual rally coming up in mid April I think, called Magnum Opus, in Newberry. It's a (relatively) short drive as far as rally is concerned. =)

I lived in Grand Rapids from 05-08 and I hardly ever saw subis up there! Things must have changed. I drive a silver 05 sedan w black rims. I go up there every couple of weekends to visit Frieda so maybe I'll see you guys around next time I'm up there.

Lol, am I your neighbor and I don't know it?

I live on the Northwest side of GR and even on my short trips I see like 5+ each time I'm out. Most don't wave though cuz I'm in my beat up Brighton all the time. =D

Rob, How are the RS3s? I heard they are awesome in the dry, but haven't heard much about them in the Wet. Any insight in the Wet driving?

Well I need to replace my DD tires and will need tires for Rain during AutoX. Plan on R comps for Dry Days or mostly dry. I may just end up going with the Star Specs.

You should weld it in downstream from the turbo in the downpipe. Basically anywhere around where the Stock Rear O2 Sensor is at, usually just before that Sensor.
