I also swapped out the turbo blanket for the PTP Turbo Blanket, so much better design and construction then the DEI ones that fall apart









I also swapped the Sparco Grid seat for a MOMO racing seat with higher bolsters to keep me snug while I'm on the track, the sparco grid is in my wagon version.

i add DBA 2 piece rotors for better stopping on the track, the stoptec ones cracked




I also add Forged Billet shifter forks, i was sick of the plastic tab suabru used for the stock STi 6MT transmission.

very true adds a nice touch to the profile of it, its fun to drive on and off the track keeps me busy.














more rare parts from japan ! my new PIAA Nakajima Racing wheels 16x8 5x100 ET38 made by RAYS or ENKEI 17lbs..

they have that T37 volk look but five star style to them which should make them pop on my square body once i sand blast and have them painted Subaru gold !
