Did you notice how heavy the wing was though? It's amazing. Yay weight savings.
I definitely noticed how much heavier it was. Especially when we popped the wingless trunk with the STi torsion bars LOL. It was nuts.

Yeah, when I swapped trunks I thought I would keep my STi powered torsion to open it and leave the poor guy buying my WRX with the weak ones that would barely open the STi trunk. Then I tried it and the thing shot open uncontrollably. Swapped 'em right away HA!!

ACT XTSS Clutch installed yesterday! Took us about 6 hours including a break for lunch.




Look at all the friction material that was built up in there:


Initial impressions of the clutch:
VERY stout and 100% better than the stock one that was in there.

I haven't been hanging out a whole lot on the car forums so I though I would update this now.

About 7K miles ago nagyhead helped me do the timing belt service for the car. It's really not too tough as long as you have someone that knows what they are doing.

This weekend we did another long install. This time it was the suspension that got upgraded. We swapped in all this stuff:

Group N Strut Top Mounts
TiC (NOT) Banging Rear End (Rear Tokico D-Spec struts/Adjustment Extenders/Strut Spacers)
Whiteline 24mm Front Sway Bar (BSF36XZ)
Whiteline 24mm Rear Sway Bar (BSR37XZ)
Kartboy Solid Front Endlinks
Kartboy Solid STi Rear Endlinks

It feels like a whole new car now. The car is so much smoother. I definitely recommend the TiC (NOT) Banging Rear End. No more clunk from the inverted STi struts.

Once I get a decent alignment I will get to really try out the new sways.
