Thank you. I was very fortunate to get ahold of them when I did.

So you split the block before it blew to install Cosworth forged pistons? And you bought beefier gears? Crazy stuff! Were you having engine/trans trouble or just to not have to worry? We had about the same power output before you went with a bigger snail so I'm curious.

Always real... lol

New short block split... the Cosworth pistons are not alone. The original block is still healthy, along with everything else.

The upgrades are preemptive action to take full advantage of the 1.5XT-R and E85, and to minimize concerns.

The prova d-shaped wheel would really finish off the interior i feel. Although for what seems like more of a track car the flat bottom may be less than ideal

From the catalogue: http://www.sti.jp/e/parts/catalogue/...G117AJ015.html
Most of the STi parts are available. I recommended some research about overseas distributors and/or CONUS parts suppliers and make a personal decision about who to do business with.

I agree about a Dshape wheel on both points. The interior does not have much to address, but a few items are being thought through.

There are actually a few items missing that have a varying amount of importance. Some being comforts/gimmicky, others being necessary for the best performance and driving experience.

In my attempts to make the car personal to me, Im glad others are liking the progress. Ive only been to Alaska for some overnights, Id enjoy an actual trip.

There is one Ive posted, and available on youtube. After listening to clip it sounded odd, and noticed there was an exhaust leak at DP-MP. Id recommened listening to the exhaust clips from the STi catalogue for a stock comparison. Remember the exhaust was designed audibly for a different application. I will have better clips of my complete setup soon.

Aesthetically the mufflers are great. When manufacturers actually take great consideration in the exhaust notes their vehicles produce, they put a lot of R & D time in. Especially when it's their top of line model.

STi obviously spent time developing the tone, and exhaust notes with the Sport Mufflers. The car, engine and exhaust, STi used to develope this was on the 2.0, twinscroll header, etc... Not my 2.5, EL header, catless 3" to 2.5" to resonated piping.

My setup sounds fine, but does not compliment what STi intended for anyone to hear. Judging the sound of the exhaust by my setup alone does not represent it well. All being why I recommend listening to the exhaust on the appropriate model, to compare.
