Yeah. And I think there gonna stay that way. The dyno gains I've seen don't justify them and they are a ***** to work with. Ill do the offroad H and be done I think. Then suspension. Rear control arms. Sway bars and I'm going to custom fab a strut bar with firewall connection. I'm not going to lower it as I drive it year round in canadian winters. I'm thinking about welding in beefier sub frame connectors and doing tubular front arms/ k member.

Think I'm gonna go w/shorty's and mid pipe H w/high flow cats cause they may start testing again down the road. I'm looking for sound mostly. Although all that should help it breath better.

Yeah. The longtubes have better numbers and sound better but are a total pain in the ***. If your just after great tone and sound just do the H and a catback.

Came to an agreement with two of my buddies that we'd all watch each others backs for door dings at work. The WRX gets the middle cause it currently has 80 miles on it.

Mine has very few and this is my biggest fear at work. I look at my coworkers doors and they are filled with door dings. I try to park next to the plant manager cause he's got a newer A5 that i can tell he cares for his ride. It always clean like mine Good idea bro!

Door dings are my BIGGEST pet peeve! I notice that it's always the trash, with the rusted out POS that can't park to save their life. When they get out of the car, they let the door fly! Since they have no respect for their ride, they seldom have any respect for anyone else's.

I had some woman park next to me and she flung her door open and nailed my old mustang leaving a huge dent... I was in the car at the time parked quite a ways out. So I got out and asked her wtf? She told me to **** myself and to buy a car with rubber side bumpers. Fortunately someone else saw the whole thing and they encouraged me to call the cops. He is a big mustang fan and he charged her for destruction of personal property and I settled with her. I saw her in the same parking lot getting ready to key my car and boy did I ever cuss that ***** out...

Last night I took my wife and girls out for ice cream then drove around listening to Victoria Justice, Justin Bieber, and call me maybe for an hour. The top down through the night made their music bearable.

Ran the car down the quarter yesterday. Track was slick due to start of year breaks but I cut a 13.60 @105 with a 2.6 60' had a nice 0.22 reaction on pro tree. The first hundred feet of track saw 15 spill breaks the night before. It was like launching from a puddle...

Just hooked the car up with a bama tune with the launch control feature and I bet that a launch with that on a decent road would easily generate a sub 2 second blast to 60 feet. So stoked to try it again...

No that is common or i hope it is otherwise you and I are some weird guys. I got whiplash the other day driving by the dealer and seeing six mustangs in a row, which makes me think the dealer knew what it was doing as a sick joke
