Dang looks like a lot of work to get to where you are! Good one tho, it should be fun and something you'll be proud of. I sure would be if I were you. +1 for methanol cooling too. Its a great underrated tool.

Yes methanol should be the only mod I may be interested in, i was very happy with the cobb stage 2 power on the 06 sti but now on this 96 body I saved about 600lb so thats a huge upgrade on its own
