Why not a Covert oil pickup or the killerb? Or killerb oil baffle? Or rods better than sti rods?

Low budget build i assume? Just to get back on the road?

Just an update for anyone who cares; after some research and talking with Dan at Mack V(fastwrx.com, excellent costumer service), I just went and bought a grinder and cut all the studs down a bit. It was surprisingly painless, except for my back...

I'll bump my own thread soon with any further updates.

Stopped by Subaru yesterday and saw Jake along with Pat. Really going to miss you Jake. And good luck with the rest of your car Pat. Hope to see you out at bro bell this summer.

Anyways, picked up the exhaust for the STi. This will be my 6th exhaust for a Subaru/ 04/05 STi and my first INVIDIA. Used the old detailing skills and cleaned her up. It is beauitufl and can't get enough of that burnt titanium.

I'll have to see those in person. I'm not completely sold on them. I think the price is good, though. I'm waiting for TOM'S tail lights. A lot of people were disappointed with the LED strips not being a single form of light since you can actually see most of the individual LEDs, but to me it's okay because they'll compliment the third window brake light that has individual little lights. Plus the main light that I like is the DRL brake light "C" shape that compliments the front headlights magnificently. That light looks like a single strip and is dead sexy to me. Anyways, those won't be out until late June, early July, so I was kind of looking at the ones you have. I'd go the full tint for sure.

Did yours have any wiring issues like the first few that were sent out? I also think it's cool how you're focusing on exterior and I'm focusing on interior. This summer I'll be going the exterior route. I'm curious what else you've got planned...

Meh, you'd be surprised. It took me less than 5 minutes, using a special chemical not available to the general public and Sprayway window cleaner to polish and clean the metal. Use a soft dry cloth to buff/dry and there you go.

Love titanium. I have several tens of thousands of dollars worth of it holding me together!
