I did that on my LGT. It did feel better.

Time to make some changes. After fixing (hopefully caught the culprit) an exhaust leak I purchased a Grimmspeed AOS along with a Grimmspeed MCB. Already have the stainless brake lines but when bleeding the lines after doing the brakes I saw just how much the firewall flexes. Everything should be in by the end of the week.

Nothing too serious. Still no power mods. I got a version 6 STi grill coming from Japan with a pink "i" badge. Going to stop at that for now. Hoping that AOS will help with the blowby. Going to hold off going big until I know what the future is going to bring. Have surgery next week which will probably be the starting point for a medboard

So I'm thinking about ordering a Grimmspeed radiator shroud and alternator cover. Colors are red, black, silver, and stainless. Thinking about the stainless then painting/powdercoating them a lime green (or other color) to liven up the engine bay. Thoughts?

Why lime green? Wouldn't neon pink look better and match with your sti logo?

True, that's so common if he really wanted to "liven" up the engine bay he should go with something neon...lol

I was just thinking out loud for the most part. the main reason why I was thinking a little bit of lime green is that when I had the 08 the fmic pipes along with the intake were a lime green color and looked pretty decent in my opinion....


Either way, more than likely I won't be going with either the lime green or pink/cherry blossom red. Probably just go with either black or stainless and call it good.

Going to be forgoing the "flair" and opting for new endlinks along with some fender braces. After that, I'm getting another downpipe and going back to a stage 2 tune. Once those are complete, I'll be changing up the interior. Going to order new carpet and door cards from zealous interiors. Deciding if I'm going to go STi seats, 04-05 WRX black seats, or the 06-07 sport style seats in black/grey. Pending on the seat choice will determine what color carpet and door cards I go with.

I may be down for the JDM sways. What size are they? I have a set of oem WRX wagon sways on it now but can't remember the sizes, I think 20 front, 17 rear. Have a buddy back home that has a set of kartboys that he is going to hook me up with.

I will measure them tomorrow, there is a possibility the rear is 20mm.

I measured it last night and it is a 20mm rear sway that came on the Ver6 STi.
