They are like a middle ground b/t stockers n camber plates. I really only used em b/c my stock ones looked kind of rough. I can't say whether they are worth it or not b/c i did so much other work at the same time buuuuut there are tons of people who would swear the front ones at least are totally worth it.

final product



So b/t this exhaust and new suspension...i think imma go to jail. haaaaa, so there is this restaurant right by an on-ramp for the interstate down here and today I dropped it into 2nd right next to it and ripped it on the interstate, right in front of all these families enjoying there fancy dinners

Then there is this wide turn by my apt and when I went around it i dropped it into 2nd and kicked out the back with crazy ease, i wasn't even flooring it till it slid around and then i floored it, jaw dropped until i hit fuel cut ...pretty sure i was in a state of shock. I got home and all i could say was OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!! Seriously, it wasn't that I had never done that before, it was that it had never been so easy, nor so fast. I reckon these new rear diff bushings, coupled with all new suspension really helps lay the power down
Looks great I can notice a bit of a drop, I think hah. I'm far too lazy to post my top mount up on a forum to sell it so maybe you will be getting it for free

i have the "comfort" fortune 450s. they ride fine (a bit bouncy on rough patches of highway, but that's a little expected).

you should be perfectly fine with the 500s.

i'd be interested if they weren't that color since i have torques in 17X8+35 in steel gray.

Funny thing is I never got on it, was pretty much shifting at 3k rpm. But all of you that like Moore, take your car there if you want them to just stick there dick in your car and call it fixed, asked them what they were going to do this time, and they still only plan on throwing another short block in there like last time.....so I'll be back there in 500 miles......would love for Subaru to pull their certs, they have been the worst place I've ever taken my car, between all the stuff they broke that wasn't related to the issue at hand, and them not even fixing the car, 3 motor blows....in 5 months, i got to drive my car about a month and a half in 5 months. Be nice if i can get reimbursed for my car payment and insurance.....

Say what? There is no intake or exhaust side of the a piston. That is the top of the piston.

Personally I think there is another problem at hand. It is not hard to put in a shortblock and a seasoned technician can install those with ease. Hell the pistons and everything come installed already. I think there is something else going on causing the failure. I mean seriously 1 piston gone, they replaced the piston, it goes, then it is replaced with a shortblock and that goes south. Something else is causing the issue.
