A lot of hours of work. Honestly, this mod is not worth it. The WRX intake manifold is actually better than the STI version. It flows air smoother and cooler due to the plastic design. My bet is the next STI will have a poly intake manifold much like we see on the BRZ.

What do you do when you run out of things to do...

It has been insanely rainy and humid in GA so getting out to do anything outside that doesn't involve water is difficult. Got out this morning for a bit though...





A little bit different edit than I normally do.

I have been so frustrated shooting lately. The weather here has been worse than Seattle. Rain is up 250% or something crazy like that (which has also pushed back our house being completed almost 3 months). No golden or blue hour shooting at all lately. Everything is just grey...

That flat gray weather made an awesome backdrop for your paint though. Maybe not how you usually shoot but it made a few really dramatic photos. I like it

Agreed on the last shot! Looks so sick! Have you thought about doing the STi side view mirror turn signals? Since you'll have to get it painted anyway, you can probably find some on car-part in any color. I think that'll give it a nice simple touch.

Still working on final cleanup/install.

Don't mind me...just having one of those "man...it has been a long ride" moments thinking about the build.

I was just going to ask you how you're liking your ACT HDSS Clutch. Too much power/torque?
I might be due for a new clutch soon but don't really want more clutch than I need (~330whp/~375tq). <- those are just estimated numbers for my ProTune next week.

It is the 6228218 - 6 Pad Sprung Race Disc to replace my 3000502 - Perf Street Sprung Disc.

I actually love the clutch. The issue has become that I am pushing too much torque for the performance street. It is rated at 420 ft lbs and I am pushing 430...so it is letting go at peak torque in 3rd now after being driven for awhile. There are some power mods and fueling coming that I need to prepare for as well, so this disc has to be installed before strapping it down to the dyno. This new setup should be good to 535 ft lbs.

Did you get the HD Pressure plate?

Also, they're rated at the flywheel, so you're probably already pushing the limit of the ACT HD 6 puck setup

I already have that pressure plate so I didn't need to buy it.
