Very nice looking 5th gen though In all likelihood you will still have a very rare gem, even if the GT does come back.

Default I figured it would come back...

...later than sooner...Can we hope for a twin turbo H6?

NO...it didn't come with the "L7" badging package...that's my a la carte thang! ;-)

I have owned a '99 lgt, '05 lgt and now the '12 lgt...this is the sweetest out of the three imho!

Correction 4thgens come with a vf46/vf40 depend on the yr. a lot people upgrade to a vf-52 from a 09+ Wrx because it's a direct bolt on. Does the 5th gen and 4th gen have the same set up? Like 08+ Wrx and 4th gen LGT. or is it similar to an 08+ STi setup?

The generations don't have similiar setups at all when it comea to turbo locations. Ours is almost direxrly below the timing covers on the front of the header, prior gens have the turbo located further back toward the firewall. Which means less turbo lag, more torque in.lower rpm range. Its fairly common to see stage2 numbers between 280-300hp/335-365tq.

Default Hello my brothers...

...Justtook off my winter snows a couple of weeks ago!

If anyone want to buy a set of snows that have only been used for one seaon (Dec. '12- end of Mar. '13). It's Dunlop Graspic 235/40R19...asking for $600 plus shipping! They were $209/tire!!!

Anyways...This year I decided to go with Nitto instead of Toyo...Toyo didn't have the size I want for the model I wanted to try. So Nitto was my second choice...and I went with what the local corvette club ramp's and raves over ... the Nitto NT05. A hybrid street/race tire!

http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt05#overview

Since my last post:

-re-wrapped my roof top. Took off the CF and went with matte black 1080P vinyl wrap.

-wrapped my front grill chrome trim with glossy black

-installed a polyurethane front lip (matte black).

-Bought a rear window spoiler, but haven't put it on yet. Maybe this weekend

-Need to install motorized front tag that's sitting on my desk at work.

Future Plans:

- Black 19" wheels
- Hella horns
- Redo and install LED door stripes on all four doors
- Under hood LED bar
- Install a 10" tablet and fabricate a mount for top center console
- maybe...just maybe ...an LED scanner for the hood scope or black front grill.

More pics to come...

Thanks everyone for your like(s) and comments,

CK
