110 dollars won't buy you anything special. Save up until you have about 200 or 300, then you'll have real buying power.

Ebay parts might look and say they will work right but when u get them and they dont fit or work soo good....you may be screwed. Save up some more and get quality parts, its your car your talkin about.

Make your own grounding kit.. Its pretty simple.. get a stinger distribution block. you will need some soldering skills. and some star looking washers.. use stereo grade wire works better and looks better. If you need some picks let me know.. I have my engine out right now.. so it would be easy to show you.

i have never cut any corners with my car before. believe me i have spent more money on it than i would like to admit.


if you could show me where to make the grounding kit connect to i would be more satisfied if I made it my self.

& as far as the short shifter goes i should buy a quality one

however those 20$ fog light covers for bug eyes on ebay look and fit just as good as the ones from Subaru that cost like $260

Found the grounding kit I did a few years back.. here is what I went by...I wouldnt do the wires in red though.. sure enough someone would think that was the positive side whilst you were jumping someone off.. and BOOM!..lol

I'd say try saving up for a short-shifter kit. Throws get so much shorter. It's great. Just my $.02.

Unfortunately, it's going to be more like $2,000 3,000 but he was right. Save your money and buy Direct Bolt ONLY.

Save it for quality parts! I would personally purchases use branded products over ebay's low budget merchandise.
