Out of 4 places i called they would all do a sun visor, but only 2 would actually tint the entire windshield.

Tint looks good dude, nice and clean. How much better is it rolling around with a tinted windshield? I've got 50% on mine and I love it!

I'm curious as well. Did they have a warranty on it as well?

Just is gonna suck if you get stopped. 20% on the fronts is pushing it, and 45% on the front windshield is a red flag. Good luck!

Can't deny it doesn't look good, I just would be too worried about getting stopped with the windshield tinted.

Ive had 20% on the fronts for over a year on the old glass, but it does look darker with the windshield done.

Another reason i wanted a darker sunstrip was to show a contrast of darkness haha

Hey chicken, I saw in the OP that you have a 257 block with 04 wrx heads. Is that considered a hybrid swap? Did you have the heads modified at all? Lastly, did you need a new ECU or wiring harness?

Any info would be great, thanks man!

Yup it is considered a hybrid. I didnt have the heads done at all, but you sure could. As far as wiring harness/ECU, its my stock stuff.

Thats one of the main reasons i didnt use the STi heads. I would of had to redo the entire engine harness and put in an STi ECU. Deff more work and more money.

Sweet! I found some 05 wrx heads and I didn't know If I needed a 05 harness or just a 2.0 harness. From what I've read its just a 2.0 harness within 02-05. That'll be fun to put in! lol

I think I might have EQ do their cnc work on the 2.0 heads.
