I've got stock wagon springs if you need

On the sabb we are running a cobb turbo back..i think you can buy just the cat back if you don't want a super loud set up but still sounds good when you get into it imo...

from what i have seen and heard invidia is really popular and is alot louder and sounds good idk about drone because i don't have it

Oh and I get no drone with mine. Only bad thing I'm finding out is you either need a down pipe with a donut gasket (Cobb) or need an adaptor.

A cat back is just that. It's behind the cat. IMO get rid of it sooner rather than later. You'll make more power and since you live in mi there are no emissions. Josh that goes for you too!

IIRC the xr-1 is a tad bit louder but not too loud

Transmission is swapped and all bolted in. I swapped my KartBoy short throw shifter and Whiteline shifter bushings in to the car, and it already has Whiteline transmission subframe bushings.

I started tearing into the leaking fuel rail thing, but it started to rain so I had to call it quits. That car has some odd things done... The down pipe is just a single exit (non-bellmouth), with a piece of tubing that extends from the turbo outlet in to the down pipe (to minimize turbulence), but that effectively blocks off the wastegate exhaust from being able to go down the down pipe.. It looks like the car was set up for EWG, but it no longer runs one.

The injectors are light blue, but I thought those were stock WRX units? So maybe they're just modified?

The vacuum lines for the turbo are setup in an odd configuration.. Both Aron and I are a bit baffled by it. The signal line from the compressor is just venting to nowhere. O_o

There is an aftermarket wideband in the downpipe, but I'm not sure where the gauge or hook ups are yet. I need to pull the tune and take a look at it before my run to Traverse this weekend to make sure everything is ok.

Overall, I'm a happy boy.
