Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Wheels are in, tires will be mounted and balanced sometime this week or next.

Over the weekend I got a TurboXS up pipe, Tial 44mm wg and a new tune. :)

Going to try to wash the car this week, finish the interior pieces, refinish the fog light surrounds and see about putting the fogs back in. Spring is almost here and I am tired of driving on these winter tires!

Repainted fog light surrounds, put the fog lights back in, took off the mud flaps until next winter, cleaned wheel wells, cleaned engine bay and installed new wheels and tires. :)

Thanks :)

I also have clear lenses on the way. I still need to hook up the fogs, they are just sitting in there along with the ballasts.

Stop posting pics of those wheels. You're making me want to spend money! :lol:

How do you like the TurboXS exhaust so far?

I really like the car man. Great job on the interior man!! takes some big ones to do that with a brand new car!!

Is there a lip in the near future when springs are purchased?!?!?!!

Cobb springs (yep I've read about them, and I still got them). I almost got a lip last week, but the EWG setup swayed me a little. :)

Haha!

I really like it. It seems quieter (or about the same) at idle and lower speeds, but loud when I 'get on it'.

Thanks, it wasn't too terrible either. It would have been sooner if I had more time. The front doors have plastic welds on the upper gray part so it just took a little more time.

Depends on the ride height but I'll probably pick one up in the next few weeks.

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

So much for selling them.

Springs were put on last night, but didn't see the pavement until a few hours ago, waiting for them to settle a little more before an alignment.



Color modded my lights.




And changed the the lenses from fresnel to clear.

Old:




New:

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Did you have any trouble with the spring install? I'm in the middle of putting the RCE blacks on mine.
Not really, the rear sway and end links sucked getting them back in. It was just a pain in the *** doing it alone with no extra hands. :lol:

Heh, I should be there for sure if it's on Thursday.
