Trunk Lid Swapping Guide?
OK, I picked up my STi on Friday. Had all of 5 miles on the odometer.

Damn it's hard to keep it under 4000 RPM!

Gotta get rid of the spoiler as it obscures my vision of the horizon to check for pursuing blue lights.

I'm now actively looking to swap trunk lids with a 2004 Aspen White WRX, but I'd like to know what's involved or how long it might take.

Are there any online guides anywhere that show how to do this?

Damn I am looking to swap a java black trunk. But from what I hear it is pretty easy to swap. All you have to do is switch the springs because the STi trunk springs w/ a spoilerless trunk will result in a catapault. Also you have to switch the lock. I hear it is pretty easy and takes all of 10 minutes

Ahh...good input as I hadn't considered either of those issues.

Are the differences in weight between the WRX spoiler and the STi spoiler that much?

Well I am spoilerless but yeah I think it is a significant difference, because the STi spoiler isn't carbon fiber like the evos.
