Man you guys are killing me right now! This is hard enough as is! How will I survive without hearing John coming a mile away? What am I supposed to do when somebody doesn't get my reference to The Fast and Furious? Who will give me crap about my Northface? And what about I can haz no Zobaaaru feriendz in Baahstin?

In all seriousness, you guys have been awesome, buying an STI turned out to be one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Being in a completely new city 1200 miles from home was a little intimidating at first especially when I didn't really have a way of making my own friends outside of Nicole's circle (nothing wrong with her friends FYI haha) and work (slimey, greasy salesmen). You guys just turned out to be the most honest, sincere group of friends an outsider could have asked for. I never thought I would miss getting made fun of for my silent car or dealing with a certain someone trying to give instructions on where he lived while severly intoxicated (was it 1155 Danny?) You guys will truly be missed and consider this a standing invitation to visit in Boston and tear up Lime Rock, The Glen, NHMS, or any other track. I had better come back in a year and find that at the very least...

1) Ed has taken derivery of the STI and has blue allegrittas
2) Nick's Miata has a V8
3) Tony's WRX is running on 4 cylinders
4) John's car is even less Bailey friendly
5) Danny has his license back
6) Kristi is still hosting awesome install days
7) Everybody is somehow accident free (this may be pushing it, I know)
8) Scott is dominating everyone in a red brick weighing roughly 3 tons
9) Jeff still wears the unamused shirt

I consider all of you my good friends and hope for nothing but good things for each of you.

Tires Plus in Ankeny officially hates my car. It took them 4 hours to get my car aligned with the setting I asked for. The tech actually said he was about to quit, because it was a free alignment (lifetime alignment FTW)

Wow, you'd think with all the aftermarket stuff it'd be easier...

Okay, well I'm really tired of not having a car. So if you guys could help me located a transmission for my car, me love you long time. Low miles and of course not beaten on. Thanks. Only need a transmission, nothing else.

It may be cheaper and better in the long run to just take it to Cottman.

Exactly. You don't want to spend a bunch of money to get another transmission that may have the same issue.

Seriously? How much would it cost to rebuild mine? I'll give them a call tomorrow. I heard that P&L carries rebuilt transmissions. I may look into that.

My two turbo toys.

How would you like to have 560HP & 1850ft-lbs in a 3000lb chassis?

Very True!
The general public will probably never know or appreciate the exhilaration of moving 10 tons of mass from 0-60 in about 9 seconds! 1550ft-lbs of torque 1.5 seconds after mashing the pedal is a rush!

I can appreciate a 0-60 time of around 9 seconds for a one ton car
