If memory serves me right it's only 38-39 ft/lbs for OEM on stock con rod bolts...

You're right, I was looking at the N-m spec, 52 nm, 38.5 lb-ft. Manley's are definitely 60 lb-ft, but they give a range of 60-70.

Damn that's still high, but then again they are designed to handle more...Might be why the clearances are so tight as well.

Got the hood last night, put it on tonight.

Forgot to take the camera out of manual focus so all the on the car shots turned out blurry and it's now too dark so I'll get some tomorrow.

















Hood looks great in person, very high quality piece. I don't, however, like the way it makes the car look right now. It'll be fine once it's painted but holy hell I hate bare carbon.

What color are you going with on the carbon fiber hood? Now I know that at least on my model year the carbon fiber hood weights only like 2-3 lbs less than the factory hood, not sure about the newer model like yours....

08+ WRX got steel hoods that weigh 45 lbs. CF weighs about 25 so I'm almost cutting it in half.

Getting it matched to the car... Really debating if I'll paint the whole thing or paint it all silver but keep the vents in cf as an accent.

I'm going to get a pic up tonight and see if the photoshop thread on Nasioc will do some magic for me.

Pics are here







Put in a request for a photoshop on Nasioc, we'll see if I get anything out of it. Right now I'm like 55/45 in favor of painting it 100%.

CF hoods just make your car look like you were too cheap to hit the paint booth to me. I guess I'm just old.

^Same here. Hate bare cf. Hate it.

That's why it's getting paint in 8 days

100% or leaving the vents cf? The only problem with leaving it bare is that it will need about 10 coats of clear and even then UV will fade the cf eventually.

Still waiting to see if I get a photoshop off somebody on Nasioc to see what I like better. Still leaning towards completely painting it.

Alright got the photoshop back from ohitsspencer on nasioc.

After seeing this I'm super torn now. I thought I was convinced the all silver would easily look better but the inside of the vents being left carbon does look pretty awesome.

It does kind of break up the solid color more...
