After going through all that and having my fair share of problems, decided to move to a stock MR to start over - plus I always wanted white

with the new evo, going with a much more mild setup powerwise - car's got an exhaust and fmic from the original owner, totally stock motor. i'm at a point where i can go either STU or ASP, but i guess if i can only have the rear diff if I go ASP, that's what I'll do. i don't plan on running wider wheels/tires than stock, and I guess i'll go with a mbc ebcs hybrid setup since I can in ASP. the MR 6 speed has been known to be weak so I'll get it built, keep the stock t-case, and bring over the Cusco rear diff. Just ordered Ohlins DFVs which I'm stoked about, so I guess I'll go from there! It won't be a competitive car but it'll be damn fun to drive lol

one final on topic note though, maybe STX WRXs can still move forward with this - i still think it'd be helpful for WRXs in that class to have a little more edge at nationals.
If you have a not stock FMIC then you this whole STU discussion is a mute point.
