for ~ 600 bucks you can redrill some vette hubs to 5x114.3 and use any number of amazing and cheap wheels. or just keep the vette 5x120 and drop on some BMW wheels, there's only a billion of them and a lot of the even OEM wheels are great. M6 wheels would probably look boss on your CTS. or get some bolt on adapters. they're legit.

I believe there are a few more truck parts on there as well.

That rig is built "like a rock"
Exactly.

I got 18x8.5 Rotas in hyper black for my summer setup. Great shape with minor rash for $540 with almost new tires, found on Craigslist 2 months ago. Can't wait to put those bbs wheels on tho, rotas are heavy..

Is it possible to have a bad headgasket, or one going bad, without over heating or fluid leaking issues? Did a compression test on a motor one side both were 130 other head both were 110...

yup. more likely timing belt/valves on just one side, but with ej25s.. yeah sure, probably headgasket. i have a set, but you want to use the MLS STi gaskets. keep forgetting to give this set back to adam! oh wait, i think i gave that set to Jesse to drop off at Ryans, to get to Adam! unless i'm insane..

On a 257 sti block. Odds of just one head skipping randomly?

takes like 15 minutes to check. you just pop off the bolts holding the drivers side cover on, and pull the rubber plug from the other side.

i know! i expected some crap. there was still ~.5" of preload on the springs so they ain't gonna fall out. and not like it's even low. all calcs say they went from a 190 to 230lb/in springs which are still real mild.

Never realized cutting coils increased spring rate.

Never actually looked tho.

That's a joke from the LGT thread.





Spotted a RBP LGT yesterday on 79N. Debadged with yellow fogs. You passed my SWP LGT. Anybody?

Just curious, but does anyone have a 2012 Impreza sedan (N/A) that is looking for an axleback exhaust? We're looking for a car to do some mockup and I was hoping someone local would be interested. Please let me know if anyone is available. Here's a few of the current car and shop projects going on at our Bridgeville based (15 mins from Pgh) facility:

- BRZ/FRS catback and axleback motosports exhaust parts (pics and dyno testing coming soon)

- 2013 Impreza hatch pre-production axleback systems

- 2011 Impreza hatch prototype axleback exhaust

- 2013 Harley Sportster 48 custom exhaust

- 2010 Lotus Evora turbo system (in development stage)

- Custom twin scroll header and uppipe systems for a GT42R equipped sti in the states and a big turbo wrx sti is Australia!

- Budds Autoparts one off 04 sti, joint effort between both company's for this monster.....it's going to look and perform amazing

- 7 current engine builds for a number of different cars including a soon to be twin scroll LGT Spec B, 08 sti, 2011 wrx, etc

- Building a 20'x30' clean room in the shop for engine assembly and prepping for a much larger welding/fab section at our facility

- Mini Cooper exhaust projects - N/A and turbo


- And for our shop cars........were getting the final touches ready for our big turbo forester in preparation for some national exposure, starting from the ground up with a completely new build for our road course inspired bugeye wrx and continuing the process of piecing together our big HP R33 GTS Skyline



Along with these current projects we also offer regular maintenance for your Subaru, M-F, 8-6 and on Saturday's by appointment. Also, be sure to keep and eye out in Modified Magazine for a upcoming sponsored Forester XT out of the Cincinnati area. It's a very unique Foz that sports a number of our latest goodies and we're preparing to work with the owner over the winter for more go fast parts.



For the remainder of October....................................

Here are some pics of the License Plate Deletes! We have sold 20 of them so far and that means we have already hit the $500 mark for the donation to www.scoobiesforboobies.com. I make these one at a time on my CNC then fill in the paint by hand.

Well believe it or not I no longer drink beer. Trying the paleo template ( paleo but with dairy) and have gone gluten free. Down 16 pounds in three weeks. Still drink but only distilled stuff mixed with club soda or water. Occasionally fruit juice but not often. Only drink on the weekends as well.

I changed NOTHING else in my lifestyle (exercise/diet/etc) except cutting out pizza and beer for one month, and lost 10 pounds.
