I know lol, I'm getting the tails done soon I hope. I'm trying to get a date with Jeremy in SF to do it, but we keep messing up our availability.

CBE is more expensive than headers, or more expensive than an Up-Pipe with EWG AND a Protune, etc etc lol

I'm honestly waiting for the Cobb CBE to come out. If I'm going to spend $1200 on a CBE, I'm going to have a very well made, nice CBE

Yellow fogs ftw as well!

Alright... bought parts from EQ Tuning, including my Cobb Sport Springs (AND they arrived at EQ in less than 2 days!!!)

Then went out and bought 4 new Craftsman jack stands and a nice new Craftsman mechanic's tool set with some other goodies. Lorin (RallyTard) and Silv came to help out:

I felt like copying the shots I took of my 07 WRX when I had it:

So here is my attempt with the 08 STi:

And they're a little blurry because I was using a block of wood as my tripod since I left the real tripod at home
