Re: wdb's journal - STi GT begins in earnest!
That sounds like a perfect plan. A diffuser would set it off nicely!wdb said:Hi, thanks for noticing.
My next 'mod' is brakes. My original pads and front rotors were due for replacement so I decided to upgrade the system while I was at it. The work is almost finished; I'll post up when it's complete.
After that comes powah. Nothing crazy, because this is my only car and is daily driven hundreds of miles. I am doing a Cobb catted DP, mated to the stock exhaust for now (and probably until the stock exhausts dies). Also an AP for EM and a protune. Tuning goals are reliability, efficiency and driveability; my mental ideal picture is a wider, higher, but still pretty flat power band. I'm in the process of collecting parts for this little project.
Since the power will be upgraded I decided that more gauges should be on the mod list too. Hopefully they will be mounted in a custom dash pod of my own design; something lower and more subtle than the usual 3-humpers. This mod is further out on the timeline.
I'd love to put a rear diffuser on the car also. I've rationalized this expenditure three ways. First, I am wingless and would benefit from the reduction in rear lift a diffuser would give me. Second, I'm curious as to what effect a rear diffuser will have on fuel economy. Third, I think they look hot.
