Re: Butcherboys Aspen White 2008 STI!

I have the caliper paint, the cardboard... just need to decide if I want to add the logo or not lol

It does look nice, like the way it's supposed to look. I may just fore go it and upgraded the TMIC instead.

Re: Butcherboys Aspen White 2008 STI! Harman Motive CBE Installed.

Ok so my buddy and i tackled installing my Harman Motive CBE exhaust today. It started out going nice and smooth then it turned into a pain. We had to cut about an inch of the midpipe off just to get all the pipes to fit/line up. Even after doing that the exhaust shifted around a bit since the midpipe hanger wasnt in the right spot and could not be connected as it was dangerously close to the driveshaft. So i then took the car to a shop by me and had them cut another inch or so out of the midpipe and weld an extension on the hanger and it now looks like it is all good...it might be a little crooked but i can live with it (even though this is a 1000 dollar exhaust). I was kind of disappointed in this since HM says how good the fitment is with this system and blah blah blah. After all this was done i am definately pleased with the looks and the sound. It is actually a little quieter than i was expecting and is nice and subtle until you get on it and she opens right up and has a sweet tone.
Would i recommend it? I dunno i guess it depends on your willingness to deal with some challenges during install . All in all it is a very nice system.







Oh and yes that is a ZR-1 and a gt-40 in the driveway, lol :eek:
