I think the 2.5L is a good start at the 06-07s destroying some transmissions. More TQ than the 2.0L.

Good one John. I think NVH FTL would be better. But to be honest not into the vanity plate thing. Even tho I will be getting one for my Harley when I get it, lol.

I kind of agree with Josh, I got a vanity plate for the WRX and now I think it's a tad obnoxious lol really the only custom plates I like are folded front plates

Yeah, 9 times out of 10, I'd agree too. But there's always that one custom plate that makes me laugh or I just really appreciate the creativity.

And you should ride around wearing a A-shirt that is stained and beat up. With a mouth piece that looks like your missing teeth.

Ok, back to OT. Any new pics or updates from IAG?

yea then the next wait will be the 300-500 mile break in. Will be uber tempting to beat on it once you are back up and running!

Thanks ladies and gents! Absence definitely makes the <3 grow fonder, but where exactly is the line between passion and obsession? As Barry Meguiar would say, I'm certifiably CaR CrAzY!!! Oh, and my auto "to-do" list keeps growing:

- Interior/exterior detail

- Buy/install a new battery

- Check sway bars: Whiteline - Urgent Product Inspection Notice - BSR33Z - BSR33XZ - BSR36Z -

- Get emissions inspected

- Install Walbro 255 lph fuel pump

- Change transmission fluid after break-in

- 90k maintenance

- Install Grimmspeed bcs and schedule a protune

- Swap summer wheels/tires for winter wheels/tires

- Swap carpeted floor mats for all-weather floor mats

- Install snowboard roof rack

- Research/plan for turbo/injector upgrade and another tune

...probably in that order !Laugh!

Just hold off on installing the 3 port bcs until you know IAG can protune it. Idk, if I would even install it...until it can be protuned for. Its seriously going to mess your WDC (Wastegate Duty Cycles) up, unless you want to use the AccessTuner Race and zero out your WDCs to limp it into IAG.

I installed my TBE + EBCS and had it on for months before getting tuned just didn't goose it. Also, keep in mind, he can't really push his car since he will be breaking in his new gear set.
