Thanks for the kind comments all. I've had her for a little over a year now, and it seems she just keeps sucking money out of my wallet. :lol: Oh, well, everyone has to have a hobby, right?

nice ride.. how much are you putting down with the ported VF39s??
Thanks, but I should have clarified that the wastegate was ported to alliviate boost creep. My numbers to the wheels are 273HP and 305torque. I was tuned by Dan Harman at Harman Motive. I know it doesn't sound too impressive, but he gave me a real safe tune due to some knock. I'm getting ready to put in a GT Spec Header and will be heading down to get some more tuning done.

Very nice!
Also, whats that stuff on the underside of your wing? is that the plastic that covers the screws from the factory?
Thanks. Yes, those are the covers that hide the screws from the factory. Never really noticed them until now. :lol:



Again, thanks to all for the comments. More to follow. :D

very nice!! Where did you get the gauge pod? I only intend on getting two gauges on my wrx for now and I dont like the autometer steering wheel pod much. Havent seen others and would prefer steering wheel pod, but that looks good.

How is the ride with your car been lowered?
Stiff But because I'm running Tein Flex's with the EDFC, it's not too bad. I can get it to ride almost as soft as the stock struts, and then stiff enough to jar the marbles in my head for spirited drives. I know it looks really low, but it isn't, (although my buddy Matt would argue that point). Since I'm running 18's with 40 series tires, it looks low, but actually sits higher than it did with 17's. When I'm running on the track, I use my stock BBS's, and it handles like a dream with no rubbing issues or anything. I love my Tein's and would highly recommend them to anyone. Some may not appreciate the stiffness of the ride though.

Mine is a LoTek pod. I hear that there are hit and miss as far as how angled the gauges are towards the driver, but I haven't had any issues with mine. You can check them out here... http://www.gaugepods.com/products.html
