If you wanted all Japanese parts, why would you care if the perrin part fits?

You are NOT going to be getting all Japanese stuff for your car so forget it. You will have a hard enough time piecing together an "American" system on an 08 let alone a Japanese one. Moving to a better forum...

I see where your coming from OP. It'll be quite easy to get JDM parts for suspension but performance will take a translator if you're really devoted to the idea. GODSPEED

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but there are interchability issues. There are some parts you can use interchageably and they can/will fit. You will just have to do a bit of research or trial and error and see. This is because although you have a Japanese car you have one built for the United States. The engine has differences along with how the car is set up for US safety standards. One basic difference can come from the fact of left vs right hand drive which may pose clearance issues for you. These differences make it never 100% that a JDM part will fit your vehicle and almost impossible for you to have a 100% JDM car without changing out and converting alot of stuff. ( even then, it's a US car converted to JDM)

For your DP question you have to look at the gasket type to see if it will fit with no problems, otherwise you may need an adapter.

I'm judging by the 91 in his screen name that 1991 was an important year in his life. My guess, the year he was born. This makes him 18. Which would fit with the "f--- everyone and live vicariously through an internet screen name" attitude.

2008 STI? Doubtful.

Looking for attention? Likely.

OP - It is not our goal to dog on you like crazy, but if you're going to ask a question and then proceed to insult/argue with anyone who gives you an answer you don't want to hear/agree with, you're going to get burned. I promise you this.

I've read through your limited post history, and this is what I've concluded (may not be correct, but probably has a fair amount of truth to it):

You were lucky enough to get a 2007 2.5i at the age of 17 or 18. It's a fun car, but it is not as quick or "cool" as the WRX's and STI's. In an attempt to change this, you've investigated a few things like RWD and STI/WRX take off bits. This is all good stuff to do. Research is key. My advice is to just be extremely thankful and happy for the car you were lucky enough to get. Want your car to feel faster? Get some driver schooling. Autocross it. You will be much happier, I promise. And there is absolutely no shame in having a 2.5i for a first car. The are badass rides compared to what most people drive day to day.

Just think real hard about the image you want to convey to people and act accordingly. The hardass, quick to get defensive attitiude will get you no where.

And if you do actually have a 2008 STI, good luck. You're going to need it.

It could have also been the year his brother got sick and died, *******...

Remember kiddies, just because someone gets heated in here does NOT mean it becomes a free for all. This is closed and if the OP wants more info, he can start a new thread.
