Let us know when your ready

Only thing is that the OEM mirrors are flat, these are convex. In japan the OEM mirrors are also convex. The Prova mirror uses a double sided adhesive on the back side to mount to the stock lens. As the OEM mirror in US is flat and these are convex you will want to add some extra double sided adhesive to the back side of the mirror in the center to prevent it from falling off and giving you the best contact.

We did this on our STi and they are on there to stay. We have seen people not do this and they have fallen off, so just keep in mind that you will need to buy about $4 of double sided tape from your local hardware store to ensure these puppies stay on.

And this is how she sits while its cold and snowy outside. We fire her up every few days and drive it around the block, but with constant snow we have to wait for the roads to be dry and clean.

Stickers all removed. What you guys and gals think?
My fingers still hurt from helping peal the stickers off. Putting on stickers is 10X easier then taking them back off I swear.


The Cobb Exhaust got stolen by Cobb a few weeks ago so that they could use it to make a jig and put it into production.

How do you have the harnesses mounted in the rear seats? Are you using the ISOlatch connections for child seats?

Not 100% set on turbo size, but something in the 50lb range. Simple reason is response and drivability. Huge turbo's are fun, but mid range TQ, throttle response and quick spool up will be the main concerns.

We used I bolts in place of where the hardware went to hold in the stock seat belts. Giving a much better anchor point.

Love it without the decals!

Go with the Borg Warner twin scroll setup with their new turbos. Saw it at PRI and I'm still drooling.

thats what they all do, buy an STI and automatically swap the seats, brakes, wheels and change the exterior, put a big turbo, build the block and most of the times leave the trans alone.

Then the ABS is much more complex on the STi and is designed to work much faster and is more controllable then the WRX.
The new WRX is a great platform and a solid car, the STi just comes with some nice features that are hard to pass up for not much more money.
3 LSDs yes, good reason, i mean you buy 1 for the WRX and she is still golden

6 speed trans, well throw in some PPG gears and problem solved

never had a problem with my wheel bearings

a more complex ABS is well over rated

and considering most things are swapped when bought i think its not much money to waste, but not mine none the less, car does look good.

Isn't that spot a bad idea for racing due to how low it is? Or are the belts just more for looks? Just curious.

Silly question perhaps, but how strong are the tow hooks? Would they be strong enough to pull another vehicle out of the ditch? We have had some crazy snow here lately and just curious if I ever needed to lend a helping hand

These are more or less designed to pull the car out of sand traps or just short distance pulling. I dont think they would hold up trying to pull a F150 out of a ditch.

Definitely not! You'd need an actual tow hitch mounted to the car's frame for any kind of towing.

I used one of your tow hooks to pull my friends chevy 1500 out of the snow. Mind you it wasn't 100% my end he was going in reverse but these tow hooks are beast.
