Took the lip off (got tired of popping the front bumper cover clips every other day) and sold the G200. Put the Cobb back on. Also, inherited a dual port from Bdawg.

On the hunt for an 04 STi cluster.

I just tried an 05 (had and sold lol) and the left clip was different. It *could* work, but it would involve shaving/cutting the plastic plug for it and cutting/splicing wires.

A little too involved for me..

Added a bunch of **** in the past few months. Been kinda negligent in updating this thread.

Most notable additions/changes:
-17x8 Rota Boosts (winter) wheels with (very much not winter) 2014 OE Dunlops. Already got stuck in the snow once. lol
-added an Oswald Performance rear triangle brace I got for a steal
-put the huge 255/35 R-S3s on the RT5s for the last autocross before getting the Boosts
-fuel pump, and possibly front oxygen/AFR sensor, succumbed to the abuses of E85 and had to be replaced
-finally have a functioning parking brake with the new-and-improved KNS adapter shoes
-put the STi catback I retrieved from Sybir back on

Waiting to go on the car:
-Whiteline ALK
-MapDCCD center diff controller

Monthly update:
- center diff controller wired up and working
- new (to me) tires to replace those garbage Dunlops
- trying out a new turboback, but probably won't be on the car long

No MAJOR updates. Found a Prodrive axleback for cheap and I'm in love. Only thing I don't like is mating the OEM intermediate pipe to an aftermarket flat-flange downpipe. On the hunt for a catless Cobb downpipe..

Some fun videos from last weekends autocross.

My vid:


Blake's vid, with cameos by Toby and several i-Clubbers:


Next big project: R180 rearend swap. Already have the 04 STi knuckle assemblies. New bearings, rear axles, and a 3.54 R180 and slippy slappy!

R180 swap is coming along. Diff and Whiteline lateral links are on the way. Don't remember ordering the lateral links. Just woke up to a "Congratulations on your purchase.." emails from eBay. I really need to lock up my phone at night.

Front:
(need) STi aluminum front control arms
(need) GD WRX sedan/2004 STi front axles
(optional) roll center adjustment kit
(optional) front LCA bushing
(purchased) ALK
(can be re-used) front sway bar and endlinks (I'm hoping as they are the same part number listed from Perrin for both the 2003 WRX wagon and 2004 STi)

Rear:
(need) STi rear axles
(need) STi rear endlinks
(need) STi rear swaybar
(purchased) STi lateral links
(optional) trailing arm bushings

Some fun updates:

Replaced the Perrin alternator cover and shroud with blank black Rev Motoring bits in an attempt to purge all the Perrin stuff from the car (long story short: don't be a condescending douche to paying customers).

Finally sourced a Cobb catless downpipe (donut-style rear flange) and got an Apexi WS2 Noir catback semi-permanent loan.

Parts for the R180 swap are just about complete.
Have:
2004 STi front and rear spindles/knuckles
Aluminum front control arms
Whiteline adjustable rear lateral links
2007 STi clutch-pack HX R180 rear differential

Need:
2004 STi rear axles

No longer need the rear sway bar and endlinks as I was able to source WRX lateral links to which I can re-use my current setup. But my affinity for Perrin products is waning rapidly which may give me cause to go find 27mm Whiteline mother-of-all-swaybars.

Going autocrossing in the rain tomorrow with big 255 R-S3s. Should be.. interesting. lol Videos to come.

Is the Apexi WS2 Noir catback off of Ryan's? Also when you decide to change things up keep me posted on that exhaust
