Had 2nd thoughts, i hauled ass to summit, made it there in 35 mins. Picked up a 18" Bullet Muffler, new black annodized lugs, and some Hella light bulbs for the whip

Im gonna run the bullet muffler after the cats, than 2.25 back to the bumper. And ill throw on a STI tip if i can find one cheap, but my N1 is for sale if that guy in philly doesnt want it.

How about this. Throw the money into an account you can't touch for a few months or just won't remember is there for a few months and save in a second place. If you never see any big amount in one place you won't spend it all at one time till you have more than you thought and you'll be able to do a swap or a whole lot of work. I have the same problem. And right now trying to hide money form my self in my local bank isn't working. Thinking of hiding like $5 a week into my Paypal and move a couple bucks at a time into my local savings and just spread it out so I don't see it and can get parts I need in a month or two. Semester ends soon and work is going crazy asking for overtime(over time at my work is anything over 42. I've done 60+ hrs weeks before at good pay)

Got turned down from another job, then go outside today to find a dent roughly the size of a deck of cards square in the drivers door, then on my way home, i come down across the bridge i take every day, same lane and all, and catch the exhaust on a lip or something and rip the bolts right out of the cat, just hanging and scraping the whole 20 miles home... Im super f'in pissed and im broke, and i have to get my exhaust fixed and change my oil before i go home tomorrow after school... Shitty day.

Rob, how much for your exhaust? brullen is quiet, gotta see if this dude wants the N1 still, so i might end up with a greddy... dunno yet.

EL header, "HFC" pipe(actually hollowed out but it looks like there's one there), and catback for $600
I am looking to replace it all with a Borla replica, stock cat, and Stromung single tip so if you have any of those, we can work out something.

I saw that the other day. If I was closer to my swap date i'd probably consider that pretty strongly. I love the idea of keeping it "factory" and going from there. The joy of Subarus is that there are many swap options, the bad news is you have to pick one.

Dude, took me over a year to decide on the V3...

1- Closed deck
2- Hand Built
3- Somewhat rare, not many V3 swaps out there

Thats what made it for me.

And i wish i had 600 for you haha, but im looking for a borla as well, just fixed my N1, 1st time ever i havent had leaks in it and it sounds good...

Oh yeh, Goldies!









Heres what $30 in heat tape looks like, made a huge differance, along with the open scoop, that box is ice cold...



Hehe, matches my wheels

lol, i told him he would regret saying that haha. I started it up this morning, sounded like a had a freakin 500 lift cam... I think a sensor is going, thinking MAF cause ive been having issues with it for a while, and RS MAFs are known to have problems, there was actually a recall i believe...

Z32 MAF and done. That's what the SVX guys replace theirs with. If I don't go Hydra on the SVX I'll likely be picking one up. Have you reset the ECU recently? May help clear a coding issue that is only in the codes and not an actual issue. Or it will pop up again and you'll be able to see the trees through the forest.

What splicing do i have to do to run the Z32 MAF? Does it have to be a turbo or N/A? Cause theres an ZA 300 in a junkyard back in ohio i could get to.
