turbo timer

Picked up my silver/silver STi last night... Going through the angst of break-in and shifting at 4000rpms. ;) Here are some pics;

Nice car :)


I dont know the exact technical words for it but are the bar between the shocktowers and the turbo pressure gauge an original item?

What kind of tires are on it?

Thanks for the compliments. :)

That boost gauge is not the stock one. It is a replacement 45mm Omori mechanical boost gauge. The stock one lights up white, and reads in mpa. This one has a red needle, red backlight, reads in psi, and fits easily in the stock boost gauge spot. It does block the ambient temperature readout, however (but it's not like I stare at that anyway).

viking067: The strut tower brace is a replica STi bar. It fits easily once you remove the a/c bracket. You can find it from a variety of online vendors. Tires are the stock RE070s.

Very nice! Hey Mike are those the mats from cc-b? If not then where did you pick them up and how do you like them? Same question about your dead pedal.

Yes, those are the cc-b.com mats. The material of the mats looks of higher quality/durability than the standard WRX mats (the material is more like the blue carpeting in the STi). The dead pedal is the one autospeedperformance.com sells.

New STi for me

Where did you buy the gauge from... did you install it yourself by just removing the stock gauge??
