upgrade fronts to WRX brakes, cheap, works well and you will need it!!! the rear, do Legacy H6 brakes if you have the money otherwise just do any upgraded stock brake set up
or you could spend some real money and get some nice upgraded brakes...AP, wilwood, sti/subaru, brembo, stoptech, etc...

Subaruparts.com comes in the clutch and I got the lightweight bumper beams, and a RS front bumper skin for 250 out the door. Thanks Trish for no shipping, muah you're a doll...

Lightweight beams...mmmmm. Do you have a weight goal for the car, i'm sure it could get down to a pretty low number depending on how much you are trying to take off.

Well well well, just snagged some other fine pieces. A lot of money but splurged I guess

650 for Genuine used STI Wagon Spoilers including mounting brackets. The works. Awaiting shipment.

Very rewarding... Nice, wanna trade drivetrains? The 1.8 is beast, no turbo lag I promise. Why can't somebody wreck their 05 STI and give it to me for free to swap over?

Still doesn't take back the choked up feeling when I pulled the dash off.

If you have the V6 dash harness, you don't have to take your dash out to do the wiring.

No V6 harness here, hell I don't have any harness. I have been accumulating exterior parts for the time being while I prep the car for paint.

After that is all done I will begin to search for a drivetrain...

Well scored a package deal

1050 shipped for

Genuine STI Wagon Spoilers with mounting hardware 650
Genuine JDM Clear Corners for 45
Genuine V6 Rear Bumper with Spats for 325

I could have gotten a brand new V6 Rear Bumper for 450 shipped unpainted, but the spats make it worth my while.

I need to start taking pictures

Only need sideskirts and V6 front lip and that's it for a long time...
