That makes perfect sense. I guess the trick is knowing where your max power points are. Any secret to knowing that. ** sorry for the noob question ** When I got dyno'd or all the dyno's I've seen...

05 Shift Linkage

Anybody know if the shift linkage for the 04-05 WRX is the same or different from the 02-03. I'm installing my exhaust this weekend and just figured while the exhaust was out, might as well do a...

IBAUCLAPlaya,

Hey Cosmo,

The Praxis ARE supposed to be for autocross. But I agree, they probably suck. They're probably pretty heavy too.

But it's not like I've ever installed or driven on them before though.
