Just received Ark Grip Exhaust in the mail! Will be installing in the next couple of days as long as the weather allows.

Just finished installing the Ark Grip Exhaust. I LOVE it! Much deeper than I was expecting after watching the videos off of youtube. Please excuse the pollen on the car, its supposed to rain tomorrow so I'm putting off giving her a bath, lol.

Installed my Defi Boost Gauge, Defi Oil Pressure Gauge, and SMY Clustermaker this morning. Love the way it matches the color of the OEM instruments.

So I took advantage of Rallysportdirects Black Friday sales, and got some parts for next round of engine mods. Picked up a Perrin FMIC, Perrin FMIC Pipe Kit, and ID 1000cc injectors. Sadly these probably wont be installed until summer/fall of '14. Also planning on picking up some Volks in March/April with some other suspension mods.

So I'm planning on doing a turbo build later this year, and would like some advice on my parts list. I decided against buying wheels this spring, as I could possibly get stationed overseas in the next year or so, and would like to have all my engine work/tuning done by then. Is there anything that I'm missing that anyone would recommend? Conversely, is there anything I have included that you think might not be worth the money or performance gained? I will be getting the majority of this installed (then tuned) at Topspeed in Atlanta when I have all the parts ready to go. Thanks in advance!

Perrin FMIC Black
Perrin Red/Black FMIC Piping
ID 1000CC injectors
Grimmspeed EBCS
KillerB EWG Header
KillerB Oil Pan
KillerB Oil Pickup
TSM 340lph Fuel Pump
Blouch Dom 1.5XTR 10CM (2.4" inlet)
Tial MVS Wastegate Red
KSTech 73mm Intake
Perrin Inlet Hose Red 2.4"
GS 8mm Phenolic Spacers
Crawford v2 FMIC AOS

Coming along very nicely! Ran a similar setup with a 3071 (same lbs/min) and it spooled very similar to stock, but MUCH more power. IMO it was the best street setup I've run; very responsive and very good street drivability. Looking forward to seeing your end results!

Ive been kinda busy since getting back from my 7th deployment, but in the past couple of weeks I have installed the following:

Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3 245/40/18 w/ alignment
Rotella T6 Oil Change (w/ blue Subaru filter)

I woke up this morning to about a half inch of ice/snow, and figured I would take a quick photo shoot with my STI.

Installed the DAMD steering wheel yesterday, and its pretty awesome. Its a much higher quality piece than what came from the factory.
