hmmm, thats a good question. I am not really sure, if you take a look at my site under subaru grounding kits, do you see an engine that matches yours? http://www.camotoy.com/products/subaru/index.php
If not, could you send me a hi res picture of your engine and i will see what i can do.
Thanks
Shane

Put my kit on a while back- after busting and replacing a stud on the strut tower I got in on there.... But it was totally worth it! Made a big difference in the way the car feels as the revs climb, especially in first. I def. reccomend this kit.

On another note of some intrest, my head unit used to reamin on and keep playing music for a several seconds after the car was turned off, sometimes even after the keys were out of the ignition. Since I put the wires on it doesn't do this anymore. Anybody else experienced this?

did i put them all in the right spot (MY00 rs)? I know jack about engine parts or bolt locations, and some of the pictures didn't look like mine or i couldn't see where the bolt was (throttle body top bolt). Just fyi i haven't tightened down the throttle body top bolt yet.

don't want to turn my car on until i know it's safe.

this is the first i have heard of this. your radio should go out right away when you turn your car off, so maybe this is a good thing?

E-mailed them yesterday. Did you get?. Since I ordered Black it's a bit tough to pick out the routing, but I did close-ups of the bolts I tied into.

I would be willing to re-install and shoot again in a brighter color & better light. Note that I got to only four mounting points using 4 of the wires. The 5th wire was just a tad short to get over to the base of the altenator... or I would have gone there to complete the package. This by the way was using your standard length wires on my '05 OBS.
