you can get dba 5000's for $619 shipped from a vendor on nasioc. the ones from girodisc are just a tiny bit more.

Finally got more bushings done. Changed all the lateral link bushings and trailing arm bushings to the TiC bushings. What a huge difference omg! Time to get an alignment @ Dales along with more goodies up front.

Nice. We're all in the same boat... its crazy. We should have ganged up on the brake companies for a discount. Alcoolaid, have you ever thought of running Solosprint? There is a Lan-evo being built for Solosprint right now (racing greed) also a tube frame VW rabbit with a Quattro swap that should be stupid fast. Not sure what kind of bar you had built but you would need a 2.25 x .120 roll bar if I remember right.

I'm thinking of getting the Performance Friction 2 piece rotors. It's kind of a toss up with the other 2 brands you guys mention. I would prefer to get something like AP 6 pot / 2 pce up front and AP 4 pot / 2 pce rear, but I'm not saving up for that setup and need rotors last season so replacement 2pce it is.

Good luck boys, see ya out there.

Put the track wheels on and doing some suspension tweaks to get make sure the inboard clearance is good between the strut and tire.

rear fenders are pulled and cut

they rub every now and then if i'm turning super hard and i go over a bump at the same time. but i'd say they don't rub. about 2" bump travel before it will hit inside the fender

Removed the factory oil cooler today... what a freggin' pain in the ass. Got coolant all over my arms and body when I was trying to connect the new patch hose.

7ft of -10an earls performa-flex line courtesy of anplumbing.com and of course the key subaru part to make it all happen... the NA impreza oil union.


Got a blister on my hand doing the first one of the night


Ditching the original -10an aeroquip socketless hose


Removing stock oil cooler/warmer


Another hose done.. got the second blister on the other hand now... lol


And all done finally.... you can see all the coolant evaporating haha

Reacts pretty quickly and it's accurate.

Going to build my splitter soon. Just need to wait for the cheap mig welder I ordered to arrive so I can weld up an aluminum frame for it and tack on some stainless steel mounts to my chassis. Probably will have adjustable height in the front and back so I can change the pitch of it.

Would you reuse the factory underbody panel mount at all?

I have the v12 Evo as well. Pretty good street tires but the review is not very good for track etc.

Nope. Going to be welding 2 support brackets up front and 2 in the rear. Should be strong enough to have 2 people standing on it and can have it on and off independent of the bumper in about 2 mins once the car is jacked up.

I'll probably work on it the next few days
