Good plan!   And when you get bored of color just re-wrap it, simple!

In a more serious note. Your car sounds pretty sick, I seen somewhere that you have a silencer for long trips, but how is it without the silencer?     Drony at all?     My set up is pretty much the same thing... Except I got street exhaust ether then race.

I find the invidia exhaust to be pretty tame compared to the blitz spec R (one of the loudest exhausts for a Subaru) with the silencer in its not too bad, but as soon as it comes out its very loud and yes it drones on the hwy. if your close to Edmonton Id give ya a ride.

I'd be so down.   It would probably help me decide suspension mods as well!  I'm in Lloyd but will be in Edmonton all day wednesday if your free.

Send me a pm if you want.

Lol well I don't think my car is a good base for picking your suspension mods unless you want to get crazy with it lol i have every bushing you can get and pretty much every extra suspension mod I can do, so it makes the car pretty solid and not comfy for most DD's but I can tell ya how each mod changed thing.

Today I went to see the car and put a few parts on and do a test fitting for Matt at RA Motorsport.

The installs today both related to front suspension, first mod was doing the TIC fender braces, I dont know how people do it with out removing the fender or I just dont have small enough hands lol. so the fenders came off and I installed them no issues. Second install was to replace my KB front endlinks with whiteline adjustable ones, I did this only because I have rear adjustable ones and sometime in the future I want to get the car corner balanced but that's still at least a year away.

the test fitting is for a rear bulkhead divider as I no longer have my rear seats ill need/want something to cover the big gap and make it look neat not just seeing 2 bars and a spec C tank hanging from them.

The final goal is to do the NL Targa at least once, I'm from back east so I don't have to worry about anything other then targa fees,gas and wear and tear on the car and me lol. But I'm still a little bit away from entring.

My dad was there this year to watch and said he would help with the fees :)

Did the fender braces make an appreciable difference on the GD?

My car is in storage and in pieces so I can't tell you from personal experience. But all the reviews have stated that it makes a good amount of difference. The old brace is pretty weak stamped steal.

well I am bored being on vacation and having the car in storage sucks even tho its for the greater good lol. So i am taking parts off and getting them cleaned/fixed/replaced. First major them to come off are the wheels lol they are dirty as hell and the rubber is completely screwed. as you will see in the picture for about 500kms after i set my fronts to -2.9 camber I didn't do a good enough toe adjustment and buggered the tires but that's ok cause they were on their way out anyway. Old tires are 245/35-18 new AD08's are 255/35-18's

Are you leaving a ring of brake dust in the tub?
