Default STi Pitch Stop

Let's play a guessing game. I call it "Spot the STi Stuff".



Not only is it beefier, the rubber is harder too. I don't notice any more NVH, but it sure is nice to know it's there. If you have some disposable income, go for it, the more STi bits the better!

I installed mine & nothing bad happened so I was happy. Of course I put it in the same time I installed my STi motor mounts, so that made it more difficult to determine if the pitch stop mount made a difference.

Which is also the same as a 95L's pitch stop







But cheaper

Just ordered my tranny, engine and pitch stop mounts. But I've looked around and seen that the actual STi and the group N are different. Heard the actual STi ones arent that much stiffer than stock so I ordered all group N stuff. Figure short throw with bushing and hyperflex bushing set will make the corners oh so much more fun

You want a stiff pitch link look at this:



It's a prototype from KB that I tired. It was way too stiff, the sound coming in the cabin was almost unbearable for daily driving. The firewall acts as a big speaker adn during startup I could hear the valves clacking till they got fully oiled. Scared the crap out of me at first. I had to take it out. Strictly for racing I'd say.

I saw this in the SPT catalog.

What the f-word is it? Where does it go? What does it do?

Remove your intercooler, and you'll see where it goes.

easy to install, no special tools, just yank the intercooler. Just know that the nut-looking thing on the driver side is not actually a nut and does not move.

its not something you should worry about breaking. Just something that surprised me during the install (which is cake). You'll understand when you find it during the install.

You can also get a nice appreciation of blow-by when you see all the sludge on the inside of the y-pipe.

Would it help any to fill the holes with some of that "2-part urethane" stuff?

I can see that the bushings have some holes for flex; you could fill that stuff up with urethane to help stiffen it up. Would that help?

I'm curious, the 95' L link looks almost identical to the STi one. And it should at least be on par if you add some urethane to the empty spots, no?

Trust me, I did a whole write up about these two and I can assure you that the stock STi pitchmount in superior to the SPT one. Search for it as I'm pressed for time right now!

I'm of the opinion that the motor and tranny mounts made a huge difference and the pitch stop made little to no tangible difference after I had upgraded the other mounts. Perhaps I'd sing a different tune if I ran on rougher terrain or jumped the car, but I don't. I can think of better things to at which to throw $40. But like I said, if you've got disposeable income...

So I just pulled the intercooler for what seriously must have been the 30th time and installed a Group N STI pitch mount. The install was easy except for the fact that both bolts were on there very tight. Like 100+ ft/lbs tight. Including the intercooler off/on, it was probably a 20 minute job.

As far as performance goes, I would describe it as being a similar change as the tranny mount, but a little more subtle. Every thing was tighter, the shifting was a bit smoother, and the engine movement on hard acceleration and deceleration was reduced. I was hoping for less engine movement but I guess that's what the engine mounts will be for.

My current setup:
MBP '02 WRX wagon. Cobb V1 AP stg.2, ERZ dp, QTP cutout w/DHM electronic valve, Tsudo uppipe, Samco Y Pipe, Group N tranny & pitch mounts, Kartboy ss, f/r bushings, K&N, Whiteline adjustable rear swarbar, Helix rear endlinks, F & R strut braces, some porting, some polishing, other random stuff...

All in all a worthwhile and cheap mod. I got the part on eBay. The guy wanted $50 plus $7 shipping or so, but he had the "best offer" option so I threw him an offer of $30. He took it.
