Am I getting confused on the rice thing? Does it really matter what badges he uses as long as he ins't all show and no go? Wilwood brakes, carbon strut bars, better suspension (not cut springs or lowered too much) and engine stuff that was already done. Sounds like he is going for something other then show. I have STI VersionIV suspension, GAB strut bars, P1 brakes, P1 seats, C-West front end and as soon as Rallispec builds a turbo I will have one installed. That or wait to see what comes of the ASR turbo with proper management from a TEC system. I think it is ricey to have badges or stickers for parts you don't run. Since alot of us are using the STI parts I don't see a big deal with using the badges. It isn't like I am using a WRX badge or Type-R badge. My car is still a RS, just now it is a RS with STI parts.
