Darn, i was really looking for the aluminum links. its all good though, i saw how much rear camber plates were and i could just have another set of adjustable links by the time i got done. Unless i can get a machine shop to cut slots in my existing rear plates or pick up a cheap set of rear plates i doubt i will be going that route anytime soon.

Although it would be super badass..... Feal revalved, hyperco spring coilovers with all 4 corner camber plates, whtieline adjustable swaybars and HD mounts, front whiteline alk, and aluminum sti front control arms and lateral links with TIC bushings.....

I really want to do it but the wallet says no..... at the moment.....

Ya, i want aluminum as well just non-STI. Don't need the wheels pushed out any farther in the back. That setup should handle very well. If you don't want to slot the plates you could always slot the upper bolt hole on the rear struts and adjust camber that way.

Yea you have a point. i could slot one of the sets of lower mounts and still run the fixed upper pillow ball. Maybe just some camber bolts in the rear to give me my adjustment back. Im not looking to adjust much but i hate taking adjust-ability out of the car. It might help with the longer arms in the rear to push alittle more negative camber without adjusting anything.

lol who am i kidding, we are going HELLAUNFUNCTIONAL... I NEEDZ MOR CAMBERZ

ok this is gonna be a long one, but I got a couple problems goin on.

first, im throwing a downstream o2 code, insufficient switching, I have the invidia catless, and I installed a 02 extension cause I had to run them in my other cars when going catless. first, when I called machV they said they can disable downstream 02 to fix that code. then when I emailed eric at torqued he said you cannot disable downstream 02 in these cars, and the cobb map disables the "catalyst efficiency" code and to NOT run a extension. SO.. I took the extension out and have the downstream straight in the bung. Jason, you running catless or catted? how about you Anthony? eric said these cars are much different than bugeyes.

onto my next problem. I installed the invidia long tube header and now am getting p0171, bank 1 lean, and p1153 bank 2 sensor 1 problem. ive done research and it seems like if you take these 02s out and breathe on them wrong they go bad, but many people also suspect that with a new header install, the 02 gets damaged on startup and initial run because of all the **** burning off the header inside of it. TONS of people have had these problems after header installs of all brands. Jason, did you experience this? my fuel mileage went from like 25mpg to 15mpg, which if this was a customer at my shop with these symptoms id be replacing the front 02, but that would also be like a 2001 Pontiac sunfire and not a 2011 wrx. LOL. I guess im just looking for a "yeah that sounds right", before I go spend 150 bucks on a 02 when I could be buying something cool

That code is due to the o2 extender. Only older cars can get away with those and the spark plug anti-fouler tricks. Removing the extender should fix that problem.

I haven't had any codes or problems come up since I have been catless. As far as the header I haven't really haven't heard anything other than everyone says get a tune after. So I'm not sure. I don't have the extension on my o2 for my downpipe and haven't had any codes come up.

I haven't had any funky stuff happen since my header install but I washed it out with brake clean cause there were metal shavings in the tubes before I did my install. You should have seen the crap that I washed out..

To my knowledge, Jason's car is full catless without the extender and all seems well. I don't recall anything weird happening after the header install either but he should be able to comment further on that subject.

I know my mpg went to hell after I did the header and got tuned but I haven't gotten any abnormal readings on the wideband. It's just my car is a lot more sensitive to throttle while cruising. If I keep it between 5"-10" of vacuum it cruises pretty decent. Anything past that and it starts adding fuel and my mpg plummets to 16mpg or less just cruising.

Did you reset the ecu after removing the extension? Also if the O2 sensors are the same, swap them and see if the code comes up again or changes. I believe you are right in thinking it is the sensors.

well I ordered the front o2 today. I don't think they are same part number so I couldn't swap them. I reset the pcm after removing the extension and the downstream code hasn't come back yet, but I haven't driven the car much because its dumping fuel like crazy

Your AFR's are likely erratic after the reset which ruins fuel economy while the car learns. It should go back to normal or close to it after a day or 2 of driving. That is if the issue is resolved, i guess you will know for sure here soon enough.

Yeah these sensors are very sensitive. Even on N/A. After my header install I had a A/F ratio / sensor 1 code. I monitored it through obd and was getting nothing. I haven't had any issues since I replaced the sensor. Im guessing all the junk burning off in the header caused the sensor to go bad?. Who knows......

I'm full cat less and still used the factory sensors. Never had a code pop and fuel mileage is fine right around 22mph on average.

Well, at 22mph I suppose your fuel economy is pretty damn good.....

well I got the front o2 replaced and fixed the issue. I think it was the crap burning off the header that fouled the sensor. I also got my new front fenders painted and put them on today, and I raised the car up so I wont need to roll 'em..
