Ordered some whiteline sway bar mounts and whiteline endlinks to hopefully stiffen things up some more... and we mixed up all the bolts when I put the 20mm bar on and everything is misaligned and **** so I just need a fresh start down there lol

Scooped the bugeye. Too hard to resist... drove it for first time tonight (buddy drove it home)

I can't wait to get stick down perfectly!

Pics coming soon...

Do I make this a double journal or open a new one?

Lol Congrats! I'd say make a new journal and just include a link to this journal as background info.

any mods on the bugeye?

02 sedan. Black. Its not perfect but I figure I can always sell it quickly and take a minor loss if I have to.

To my knowledge the only mods are Sti exhaust and a Perrin intake.

I need to snap some pics before I start a new journal but I think a new one would be the best idea.

Now I need to figure out what I'm doing with the rs.

Really considering doing bugeye to blob eye front end swap but at the same time bugeye is growing on me A LOT!

Congrats man!!!! Although I love my hawkeye, bugeye is my all-time favorite!

Please don't swap the front end, it's too gorgeous!

Have fun driving stick... once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder why you ever drove auto in the first place :p

Keep us posted about the new journal, definitely subscribing :) Cheers!

Hmmm... Swap your 04 tail lights to your bugeye ;)

get a prodrive replica lip and get 04 sti suspension, which will lower it by 0.6" and improve the handling

Car looks clean, nice find.

Thanks man its not perfect but I'll leave the details to its own thread... I'll probably start that up later on tonight.

From what I read, you don't have to, it'll just stick out slightly instead of sitting completely flush but fits no problem.

It just sticks past the bumper a bit.

Okay that's good news!!

I guess I need a new name, huh?

lol
