I see the comedians got here first! Jk Jk. Car looks clean man. Congrats. Who's doing the importing for you?
I love long walks on the beach with my girlfriend, until the LSD wears off and I realize I'm just dragging a stolen mannequin around a Wendy's parking lot.

Just a few basics to start, 255lph fuel pump, gauges, exhaust (think I'm gonna go borla for the deep quieter tone and put a cable driven or electric cut out in it like slo_STi's for when i wanna show off ;D but that won't be till later), intake... And of course a few minor aesthetic things (neo Chrome lugs!!! Haha)

Alright, so a bit of an update.

The car was released from customs on Thursday and will be ready for pick up in Vancouver on Monday the 16th. Then it'll be "7-10 days" before it is in Edmonton.

While I've been waiting for the car I've been sating my anticipation by ordering parts.

So far I have ordered:

-Ralco RZ Short Shifter
-Walbro 255LPH Fuel pump (342)
-Ebay 3" Turbo Back Exhaust
-Glowshift Boost, Oil Pressure, and water Temp. Gauges w/ RHD tri-pillar pod
-Subaru Extra-S Transmission Fluid w/ LSD Oil and Synchro magic from 42 autosports
-PLX Devices DM-6 SM-AFR Combo w/ Mount

Picture of Exhaust in Box


Stuff I've bought locally:

-Turbosmart Boost "T" MBC
-Blue Silicone Y-Pipe
-17"x7.5" BBS 2004 STi Rims 5x100 53 offset w/ Bridgestone RE-11's 225/45/r17

Pics of Rims




Everything has arrived except for the PLX Gauge... and the car ;)

I'm excited to get started!!!

PS. You can comment now LDS, it's in Vancouver ;)

You mean 2004 wheels, not 06.

why the short shifter dude? The stis come stock with a pretty short throw don't they?

Can't wait to see this thing at meets!

^Yeah hopefully you bought those off of an 04, if they are off an 05, 06 or 07 those are 5x114 and definitely will not fit your GC8.

Honestly I don't know why you wanna get rid of the Enkei's on it anyways, those are absolutely beautiful on that car.

Yeah sorry they are 2004 then. I wasn't sure... They used to be on a Gf8 so they'll fit. Not going to get rid of them but I might use them as winters because they are 16". Hard to say right now. When you see what I want to do with the exterior you'll know why I want black wheels, probably won't happen for a while though haha might keep the whites on it for the time being actually.... All still up in the air lol.

We discussed this at a beer patio night. Consensus is it probably won't need that short throw kit. Can always re-sell it to you Tom to shorten your tractor gear shift throws

The paint on the car looks gorgeous, I don't spot any fade!
