Went and got my tint done today.

Also Installed the Whitline Subframe bushing inserts today and cleaned her up. Post office has my kartboy end links too. Looks like Saturday I will be installing my rear endlinks, Front swaybar, steering rack bushings, front endlinks, and driveshaft carrier bushings.

Also talked to Nameless and looks like my catback will be shipping around the 24th.

Did you notice any difference with the drive shaft bushings?

I already have a pitch stop mount, engine mounts, steering rack bushings, gearbox bushings, kartboy STS & bushings, trans mount, rear diff inserts and subframe inserts, but I STILL get a 'bouncing' sensation when I let off the throttle in 3rd or lower.

I didnt notice much of any difference. The bouncing is the actual slop in the trans more than likely. Plus you have what is called a sprung clutch disk so no matter what you will get some bounce. But at the same time what could it hurt for $35.

Because I like the way they look. And I actually use the car for its intended purpose and take it off the pavment and into the mud/dirt/snow and dont want rock chips all over my paint.

........ ............... I give up. It's as good as it's gonna get, and it's time to just rip on it.

I need to hop into a stock WRX and drive it for a day to remind myself how much worse it used to be before the mods. Scumbag brain, getting used to my mods.

Sorry if i sounded edgy. People are always negatively commenting on my flaps. Then after a good mud run they see why i have them.

If you havent done a tune yet wait til you get used to that and want to go stage 2 and beyond.

Still on the stock tune, but it seems to pull a lot harder with all of the bushies and mounts.

I want to jump straight to Stage II, tuned by Torqued Performance, next spring, after I get my tax return and stuff.

It is definitely more solid with all the bushings and mounts. All I lack is to install the Group-N engine mounts.

I actually just ordered my Tactrix Openport. Going to be ordering a stage 1 and stage 2 package from Torqued Performance Friday when my flashers shows. I plan on running stage 1 for a few weeks until my downpipe and midpipe come in and I find decent weather for the install. Then for spring I plan on a Process West top mount and a protune.

Just installed my Group N motor mounts on Saturday, actually. Pretty easy with a lift, a floor jack and a 2x4. Minimal difference over the rest of the already-installed mods, but nice to know they are in there. Maybe a little bit better under a WOT rampage, clickin' through the gears. Also maybe a little less weight transfer up front and a smoother idle, but all at a 'placebo level' effect.

I'm going to try to keep my stock TMIC, but do the bullet-proof mod. Also eyeing an AEM CAI, the GS crank pulley and EBCS.

So many choices, so many pros, so many cons, so little cash on hand.

Yea I have a pretty extensive list for my car. Performance wise all I have left to do is the Downpipe, Midpipe, GS EBCS, PW Top Mount, Kartboy Pulley, K&N Intake, and AVO Turbo Inlet. My list of other goodies is much more extensive.
