Front end looks awesome! Did you cut your stock hood for the vent? Cut through the bracing? Where did you get the air dam lip from?

Thanks! Yes, I cut my stock hood. The vent is actually functional, it's just behind the radiator and the hot air passes up through the vent even when driving. I have plans to make an air deflector duct up to the vent like the rally cars for behind the radiator to pass the hot air from the rad through the vent and out of the engine bay. I did cut through the bracing but I rivited and silicone sealed the fiberglass vent to the hood so the struture is not compromised.

I made the front air dam lip out of UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) plastic strip from a plastic supply company online (interstateplastics.com). I called Vermont Sports Car to ask what the put on their rally cars and they told me natural color (creamish) polyethylene with black duct tape on the outside. No joke. And I rivited it onto the bumper with aluminum rivets. They were painted black when I bought them but naturally the paint wears off.

Ah, interesting. Did you have to use heat to bend it around the bumper or was it fairly flexible? Proper ducting would be the bees knees.

Yep! Eibach Pro Kit. With 25mm front and rear Perrin sways. I want to go lower and stiffer (springwise) and will eventually. Plus, any lower in Western PA causes issues on our fantastic roads. I put on the Eibach springs when I started autocrossing about 3 yrs ago, and have done lots of other stiffening and everything else and now the car's to the point it needs much stiffer and stronger and adjustable coilovers.

The visual fender gap is partially due to smaller diameter tires than stock for better gearing at autox.

No heat required; it's very flexible. Milk jugs are made out of polyethylene also so just imagine a 3/16" thick panel from a milk jug. Stiff yet flexible, very durable and weather resistant.

I know this is not the FS forums or threads, this is just a question not an advertisement. Does anyone have any good suggestions as to to what I can do with a complete WRX OEM Turboback exhuast. It came off my 13 WRX, has 2300 miles on it. I have it on Craigslist but I have not come across any serious buyers? Does anyone know of a junkyard that pays for good parts or should I just take it to a scrap yard? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Save it for when you sell your car.

I always laugh at the people who are peddling OEM takeoff parts like a crackhead looking for a quick high, only to have to buy it back at a premium a few years down the road to return their car to stock when selling. Was that quick 50 bux really worth it?

Thanks but I'm not in the business of storing car parts I may or may not need 4 years down the road when I maybe sell my car. Instead I have the pefect plan.....You could pay me a 100 dollars and I could let You store it for Me. When I (maybe) need it back I could return your 100 dollars and you could give me back my exhaust.

Scrap yards usually buy catayltic converters for a decent price. Check around your area and see.
From what I've seen you can get at least $50 per cat + scrap price for the piping, if that interests you.

I couldn't agree with you more...for example...see first response to my question/post.
Maybe that first response is my fault?
I should have stated the question in my post more deliberately?
Instead of asking "what I could do...." with my OEM exhaust, I should have said...."where can I get money for my OEM exhaust". I have no desire to keep it, store it, reinstall it, etc. It is essentially, garbage to me.....however instead of letting the neighborhood scrap man come by and take it for free I thought that maybe someone on this site had a good tip on how I could make a few dollars from it.

Keep your head up man. I dont think anybody wants it right now. We are not all Dicks. Junk yard may be best bet. Sometimes the classified forums stock stuff sells quick.

Acting like a Richard should be encouraged for all, regardless of whether we know them or not.

Like I said, you'd at least get $50 for the cats total at a scrap yard that takes cats. And sell them the rest of the tubing for scrap. You could get upwards of $100 for the whole thing possibly.

+12345 I was just googling these a few weeks ago wanting to add one of my own. I had not much success in finding any good resources.
