Well after a week or so of onwership, i made my few changes. These came in the form of some carbon fibre wing markers, smoke side repeaters and small reg plate for the front of the car. The initail plan was to keep the mods simple and to a minimum.
After driving the cossie, the sti felt slow and uninvolving. I also couldnt get used to how quiet it was. After asking about on my local forums for exhaust systems i went to Hayward & Scott and picked myself up a centre cat delete pipe and a rear silencer. This gave the car the unmistakeable Subaru burble we all knew and loved.
Next up was a braking improvement on the front end. This was in ths form of G88 Tarox grooved discs and their fast road pad setup
I also didnt like the fact that there ware no gauges in the car for me to monitor the essentials with. Unable to afford the Defis i wanted at the time, i purchased some affordable items from Autogauge.
I also wanted a carbon fibre dash pod. However, the only carbon pod i could find at the time was a 60mm variant. My gauges were 52mm so i machined up some adapter rings to mount in the pod.
In the quest for more power and learning about my car i decided to buy a decat downpipe and wrapped it before fitting.
It seemed to grow quite quickly...
