^^I did, which by the way, thanks again! That was a heck of a deal. I'm a little closer to getting to where I want the car to be.

I guess I was part of a larger group buy than I originally thought! Can't wait for the new season.

For those wondering, I picked up a set of ID1000's for a price too good to pass up. Always nice to save money.

Well, to those following, still not much on this front. Haven't heard any updates about my CBE, so I assume it's still on the boat from Japan. I'm eager to get it. I just hope it's not damaged. Good grief.

As an aside, I FINALLY finished school with my BS in Systems and Network Administration, so I'm pretty proud and relieved. I've been in school pretty much non-stop since I was a wee lad, so it's gonna take a while to get adjusted to all this free time. I will now have time and funds to put into my car; no distractions!!.....well except for the lady friend, but she doesn't know I said that.

In the next few weeks, I will placing orders for a bunch of new suspension components, including the Fortune Auto 500's I've had my eye on for over a year and the rest of the exhaust bits as well as the EWG. Just sucks I can't do any work through winter....ugh....

I hope so, I've had my eye on them for some time, and it's nice to see they have a revised 5th version out. After reading some threads recently about their progress as a company, I feel confident they will suit my needs for a while. I just hope I don't have much noise issue with them.

I'm debating whether or not to go with the Swift and rear camber plate upgrade though, as I only plan to track it once in a while. Do you have those upgrades? I don't remember seeing that in your journal.

I have the rear camber plates and sealed radial bearings to reduce spring bind (may come standard on v5?). I didn't bother with the swift springs as I knew my spring rates were going to change. Mine make next to no noise. The only time I hear anything is when I'm near lock and it's just a light "moan". Mine ride really well for the rates (10k/8k)

Interesting choice of spring rates, I think that would be too harsh for the roads where I am though. I was going to go with the radials as well and they look like a huge improvement over the roller bearings that are offered, as those seem like they need a regular check-up. I think people were having a lot of noise issues simply because they weren't using enough lube in the right places.

Small update:
My Blitz exhaust is due at the supplier sometime next week! So, I'm expecting it in two. OptionsAuto.com is the sole supplier for Blitz products in the USA is what I recently found out. I'm eager to get it, let's just say.

Today purchased a set of composite TGVs from user bue car for a good price. I'm having a hard time finding WRX fuel lines and OEM FPR for sale on both forums as was recommended to me though. Not exactly sure why...

If you don't mind, what was your source? I could use the same things.

I'm pretty sure he bought them off a member here who upgraded.

If you're looking at buying new, you could get the part numbers off www.opposedforces.com and then find out the cost at https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/oe_parts_cat.html.
