Today I worked on stripping the brighton of more weight. The dry ice made removing the sound deadening a little easier. Overall it was about 20 pounds, a huge mess, and definitely worth it in the long run. Tomorrow I am planning on cleaning up and painting the inside black.

You're going to love the power of the 2.5L in such a light chassis.

Can't wait to do this to mine.

elislider- Not sure on what paint to use any recommendations? I was just thinking of rustolium.

sleepysuby- Yeah I am going to have a local shop (small world) check them out.

ericny- Right now I can pick up the front pretty easy! Can't wait to race it!

Im planning on ditching the power steering, it seems the best way to do this is to remove the seals from the inside, grease everything and close up the openings. Does anyone have any experience with this on a subaru? I found a writeup for a miata that should be pretty universal.

Yea that's wat I did for my rx7 track car. Just make sure there's some lubricant of some sort for the rack.

I will have a few questions for u since I am going to do a similiar sti swap into my 96L.

Wrx transmission, drive shaft, and shift linkage installed.



Ground control parts...



Still need to get some group-n's for the rear. Spring rates are 350lb front 300lb rear with 8in springs all around. Helpers are defiantly needed for the rear and I may still get a set for the front.

i've just capped off the rack and removed the belt, pump, lines on 240sx. im doing it on my STi swapped L ASAP. should be no issues, my friend Mark did his 3-4 years ago with zero issues.
