also i was going to use these on my Legacy EG33 build, but ill use them here first. Whitline KSB751 will reduce rear-end float particularly under acceleration... why not fits like a glove lol

made for the new style subaru 1989 to 2007, subaru sure does love re using something that works well over many years.

What is your opinion on the idea that old forged wheels are dangerous and/or prone to failure due to years of built up material stress?

Why would forged be any different than cast or machined? Same stress. When I was researching powder coating I read stories on Porsche forums of guys powder coating forged rims and then competing on them for years. I don't see it as a problem, especially not from a manufacturer like Volk/Rays.

The black TE37s look great on that car! I had LE37s on my previous car.

i dont know, i guess ill have to do a test if anything. ill keep a eye on things i got spare wheels all ready.















well the new BW s300sx FMW fits and is in, along with the JDM STi magnesium valve covers.

also had to take the timing belt off and pulleys so I could get to the oil feed line for the AVCS and get the screens out !.. pain in the butt but i had to get it done.

good thing I have room still for the 4" cone aem filter and set up for this turbo.

I had also changed the vacuum lines for the dual wastegates to hi temp silicone to handle the heat stress in that area.

just need to wait for the turbo pipe I ordered so I can complete it all.
