STI jdm uppipe enroute as soon as more arrive on US shores... Will start with these two pieces and go from there. There's a guy that's trying to talk a tuner into coming to our neck of the woods - he's found a 4w dyno that we might be able to use. That would be sweet! But, probably a long shot. It wouldn't be out of line to expect an easy 30hp increase over stock with just an ECU tune...

Ah yes, but the boys in blue would never suspect a wagon.

Um... if you are implying my driving is bad... nah... but if it's because I supposedly have no insurance yes...

BTW I'm no demon driver... but top 5 placing in each race last years season I tnink means "above average"... oh... btw that's 24H racing GT class if anyone wonders... the team I'm part of is running a 00' Viper GTS-R In prototype class... ie even wilder engine than stock... It real fun to drive... only car I know going through a 6 gear sequential gearbox with constant wheelspin without even making an effort...

Still waiting on the muffler; will prolly have to wait awhile for that piece. I might get these two installed then do the muffler myself; I'll have to see how involved it would be:
