That's what I am wondering about as well. Sorry, but the moment a cage, rollbar, or even a harness bar is installed into a vehicle, its days as a rear seat passenger hauler are over, ESPECIALLY with a small child.

Went and drag raced the car today. Launching at 6K - 6500 was giving me problems, but they went away when I launched at 7100.

I hope to get another day in to drill the time down to the high 11's. My last run would have been in the 11's if I hadn't missed 2nd, so I'm sure it can be done!

1/4 mile run at Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA on 8-20-2014.

I'm car 786

R/T .370
60' 1.877
330 5.301
1/8 8.029
mph 91.2
1000 10.393
1/4 12.367
mph 114.78

Bought this "A" rated VF-52 turbo from a supposedly reputable New York wrecking yard. Supposedly from a 2010 WRX with 39k miles.
What is does have is:
Physically damaged impeller
Shaft wear to the point of contact with the housing
Oil leak

Looks like the one I took off my old 03 wrx, the up-pipe convertor broke apart at 49k miles.

If you get in a crash, your child's head WILL smash into that bar, and padding isn't going to do much of anything.
thank you, that picture of a car seat behind a roll bar really scared me.

Its like people forgot why airbags were created... it was not uncommon for someone to sitting far back, way beyond the reach of a child, to slam into the wheel/dash on impact.



If you arent going to remove the roll bar, at least put your kid in backwards in the front seat with the passenger airbag turned off.

I bought it an evil twin (for commuting).
Slower, lighter, perhaps better handling (not sure yet) and better braking..

I'll put a picture up as soon as someone tells me how to get an instagram photo in here. I lost my web hosting I used to use, trying to find something else for pictures..

Edit: attempt to cheat...

Today I finished up a rather pain in the arse install of:
-TGV deletes
-grimmspeed phenolic spacers
-secondary air pump deletes
-Mishimoto turbo inlet

Man the manifold removal was a pain for a first timer. I bet it will go smoother if I ever have to do it again. I hope I don't ever have to though!

Default Tail Light Overlays

This morning I had an appointment with TCT Wraps so they could install tail light overlays on my hatch, and I just cant stop hitting myself for not getting this done sooner! ha ha. Looks awesome in my opinion compared to stock and they did an excellent job and the price was more than fair.

I replaced both upper and lower radiator hoses on my fozzy. I replaced them with Mishimoto performance hoses. OEM hoses were starting to crack. Was a bit of a pain, but they look great.

I also attempted to do a snorkus delete, but found it had already been done by the previous owner.
