Definitely noticed a difference from the master cylinder bracket. Contemplating going rotated and building the motor but haven't made any hard-set choices yet.

Installed the Perrin Reverse Lock Out Lever and Perrin Short Shifter Adapter this morning while the kids were napping. Going to install the Group N Trans mount, Kartboy crossmember bushings, and the Perrin Shifter bushings tonight when the wife gets off work.

Well we finally got the last of our furniture and household goods from ND. Which means that all the aftermarket stuff from my old Volkswagen finally showed up. Went through and took pictures of everything and getting all of it ready to ship out. All that means is more dough to mod the STI!

Starting an OEM Twin Scroll setup. Ordered the manifold/uppipe, a TS turbine housing, gaskets, hardware, a JDM HKS Downpipe (Catted), and a JDM STI catback. Looking to install everything next weekend when it all arrives.

Got my tool box and everything else organized now that the movers finally showed up. Didn't get to install the trans mount, cross member bushings, and shifter bushings last week when the wife got home from work... So I took the opportunity last night. Super glad that I did because my trans mount was broken, rear shifter bushings was completely mush. Took the car out this morning on a coffee run and I now have positive shifter engagement!

Default Re: Creating a USDM Spec C STI...

After purchasing this STI with just over 40k on it, I started doing research of different variations that were sold around the world. Of course I want the car to be subtle (as much as an STI can be) but still pack a hefty punch. I fell in love with the Spec C version, and bit the bullet to convert as much as possible on the car to what a Spec C has, or a better upgrade from there.

As of right now, the turbo setup is pretty much complete.
*Installed Twin Scroll Manifold and Up Pipe
*Found a Twin Scroll Turbine Housing to match the specs of the Tomioka Racing 16g Turbine wheel
*Mounted the HKS Twin Scroll Downpipe, modified with an additional 3'' Vibrant resonator to quiet down the overall exhaust system

Right now I am waiting on the OEM Twin Scroll Heat Shields to come in, and I am in the process of converting over to a 2008 STI intercooler and W/M system with a single nozzle injection.
