I got everything installed yesterday and on the test drive blew my right front brake line and lost my brakes. I got back to the shop and my brand new wheel was covered in brake fluid. I cleaned it up and went home. I'll fix everything on Tuesday

Re: Frank's 07 SWP STI -STRi DSD Amber Gauges Ordered!!

STRi DSD Amber Gauges Ordered from RSD.

NJ Inspection is scheduled for Saturday. I'm probably not going to pass :( catless + EWG but we will see.

I had my alignment and fender rolling scheduled for June 6th but i had to have an emergency dental procedure and i was on percoets for a couple of days and I couldnt drive. So i called akuma today and i'm scheduled for June 30th! more pictures after that.

Nice clean car... do you want me to make it 6 inches shorter ?;) Haha, joking! :lol:

I see you're from NJ... I used to have regular trucking runs in East Brunswick & Edison some years ago. Darn it, I could not stand the overnight humidity!:( Jersey is NOT semi-truck friendly, urgh so many close calls...

Keep up the good work on your car!:tup:

Looks perfect to me! :tup:

It reminds me of my first setup... I do run a bit higher now though.

Not a fan on slammed suspensions and besides for show, they work like crap!

Any updates or more pics of your car with the wheels on? I'm starting to shop for wheels and the 11r are an option :naughty:

Re: Frank's 07 SWP STI -STRi DSD Amber Gauges Ordered!!

OH i completely forgot i had the car sitting in the driveway...its become more of a lawn ordimant than a vehicle.:lol:

I moved about 50 miles away from work so i had to pick up something that was decent on gas.
95 VW Golf 2.sl0w - 5 speed


It's been good to me and i got it cheap. Two days ago, while driving home, it lost oil pressure. I thought it was oil pressure switch which is notorious for going out. I changed them out front of my parents house but its still reading no pressure. I also found a leak in the oil pan, so i have to fix that to. ANYWAY, its parked until i can clear a path to my lift in the garage.


As far as the STI goes, its been parked. Its dirty, neglected and sad :(. ive been so busy with school and work lately, i havent had time to fix my MAF issue. I drove it to work today and realized how much i missed it.

Luckily, Sandy didn't do any damage to any of our cars. We did lose part of our roof and me being stupid was outside when it happened and almost got hit in the face by a giant piece of shingle :lol:

Some recentish pictures - nothing great, just some quick iphone shots.




Im really slacking. ive had a limited lip sitting in my garage for well over a year that i have to put on, i have to get my winter wheels back on it, fix my xbrace and put my back seat in. I'm going to post a few videos that i've been sitting on too.
