Cutting and fitting done by me. All welding done by Rob at Flipside and Matt at Speedware Motorsports.

As far as the diverter goes, I just set it up like the OEM's do.

I am going to finish bead blasting the pipes and decide on a finish down the road. I may do black wrinkle for an OEM look.

Tim, The canister is just an Ebay special from some company that sells a 3" turbo back exhaust for $399 shipped for WRX's. I'll be honest.....the car sounds great for a Subie.

Yup. Piping, strut bar, intake manifold and a few other things are "Sparco Harness bar grey"

Other stuff is "Sparco Seat Bracket Black"

Wow, lookin' pretty bad *** thus far. Love it with the 5-lug and Porsche wheels! Not really feeling that style exhaust for a Euro car, but everything else is top shelf.

Very nice setup!

Heres a video of a local guy and his street car.. lol.. well, not so much a street car but it does make its way to the street every now and then.




What kind of power are you looking to make ?

And another local turbo vdub.



Keep up the good work! Cant wait for dyno graphs and videos

as for being weird, i think pretty much everything else is weird because they are what i cut my teeth on. you wanna talk weird, go look at an old saab

and props for the build. when i get rid of my car i'm probably going to have some serious withdrawal issues.
