i've also been tossing around the idea on my sedan as well but honestly i kinda like all the badges. i think it looks weird with nothing there, and on the sedan the wrx badge is set too low so i'd have to re-position it.

if you do it i'd say leave the wrx at least.

I like that a lot better but I'm biased...that is the setup I did!

I also like leaving the WRX on to keep it from getting confused with a STI. I even painted over the STI emblem on the lip because I didn't want any confusion. It also adds to the confused look on people's faces that think the STI is so much faster when the car takes off. That will just get worse with the added power over the next couple of weeks.

rsutton, stock block? You may want to rethink that a little. I am sure you have seen Xluben's and now my build. I was running less of a turbo!

yeah I don't when WRX's have STI emblems on them. Some how its more acceptable than it is to put a type R on a civic Si or RSX and I don't really understand why. I feel like a poser because I used the cobb tuned plate frame that came with my intake..lol

naked ftw

It's because "STI" is really the tuning division, it just happens to also be a model. I think the equivalent for Honda is "HPT" but it isn't very popular.

Just make sure you tell everyone you're selling your car when the stock block goes out

Thanks. Looks pretty good. Kinda boring.

I asked for the third brake light to be tinted but they forgot and I haven't taken it back. Maybe someday.

lol yes

I know sti is a tuning division but most people just slap STI fog light covers with an sti hood scoop and wing...on old wrx's anyway. It would be like putting mugen or spoon emblems on your honda for no reason.

Lol. Yup. All for looks. My SPT and Q300 both had way more evenly distributed flow between the four tips.
