Meanwhile, still quietly stock piling parts for the sedan...

These will probably go on the Sedan until its gets the STI drivetrain and then I will have to figure out what I want to do.






Few more bits from Cusco





Radium Fuel Pump hanger

This thing is automotive art work



Kartboy Short Shifter


Some Torque Solutions shifter bushings

Nice bits! Since it seems like you're going for Chassis Stiffness, have you looked at any of the Ultra Racing stuff. I have a few products from them and they all seem to be just as good of quality as the Cusco and Beatrush stuff I have. The large front/rear braces took a lot of the chassis flex out of my car. I used to be able to set the car on 4 equal height jackstands in my uneven garage and the car would flex to them. Once I installed the braces I had to use boards to get the car to sit on all four.

I have those braces from Cusco too. I have seen some of those white braces on ebay.. I was quite interested in the one that mounts ahead of the front lower control arms but I think it is quite expensive and probably wouldn't do much more than just the Cusco H brace.



We had a fire at the house back in October so I currently dont have access to any of my tools or even access to my garage.. Still looking forward to getting my car back from the bodyshop though.

Is there anything hard about installing the JDM smooth rear bumper? Do you recall if you had to remove or cut any support beams that gets in the way, or is the bumper just plug and play?

It is plug and play if you switch to a JDM rear bumper support beam, like I did. I believe you need to trim the USDM bumper support beam if you don't switch to the JDM one.

Ahh, should of guessed you had the Cusco units. I'm too cheap for them. As far as the front of the LCAs I went with the Beatrush Lower arm bar. Got it for significantly cheaper than anywhere else by ordering it directly from Japan. It's a nice unit. Install was a real pain. Wish I had done it when I initially swapped all the JDM front end parts in.

Ah yes, thats a nice item. I have subframes on order from TSS Fab so I'm not sure if that will even work for me.
