Oh man if you think the 184lbtq subframe bolt is tight, my old VW bugs flywheel was factory torqued to 350lbtq.

The SPT short throw is pretty exspensive, whats the differnce between that and like the kartboy or the COBB short throw which is considerably less exspensive?

^^welcome to OEM vs. aftermarket. Aftermarket are even shorter throws

It's more expensive because your buying the whole assembly instead of just the lever part. Don't ask me why they do that. They giving it to me for 221. and its got a warranty and if for some crazy reason it does cause problems with the other components, subaru will fix it.

Got the CBE on today and just took it for a test drive. The sound is just what I was looking for. It seems louder by a couple db inside and has a much deeper smooth purr on the outside, but not much louder than the stock. Acceleration in first and second has improved. This after I went stage 1 with the AP. What a difference that made. Now my car sounds like it actually wants to be running.

my new momo nob is perfecto. I got the round steel and black cushioning one. Says momo subaru on the top. Feels so much better than the stock. Looks so much better than the stock. Now I feel like I don't even need a STS.

Just put the front strut tower bar on. After a good test drive through plenty of turns I've noticed a couple things. The front stays much more level during turns. On straightaways it seems more stable and less likely to turn with out my input. Steering response is sharper.
