No idea yet, I'm not on any of the subie forums. That'd be great if it is lighter and better mpgs. Hopefully it doesn't hinder any of the performance aspects of the current one.

They are saying 2.0T, but similar HP, and a lighter car. I know the new Impreza is pretty slow, but gets hella good mpgs for an AWD car. 25city/36hwy.

Hi all, sold my intake, got rebate back for tires.

Dunno if buy coilovers parts (~$300+shipping) or just wait till spring to lower it. Need to possibly roll fenders if I do.

Also wheels will hopefully be here and I'll have to get the tires mounted.

Decisions, decisions

Morning all.

was MIA all weekend because friday drove to Hammtramck and back
then saturday drove to MSU and back
then sunday drove to Traverse City and back.

also Timmy let me do a couple fun runs in the miata. and that will be my next car. 4 tires installed cost less than 2 of mine not installed.

also after only 3 runs I was down to within a second of the times I was running in Brads G and I'm pretty sure that with a few more runs to play with air pressure and stuff I'd be able to get times as fast or faster than the G

also because Brad and I are same person we both have the same look ahead spot on this sweeper

Jordan. Wait to do coilovers for spring. Get new wheels mounted. Trade me your EAPS for my stockers for winter. Win.

Haha we are looking in the same direction. Those are also 2 really neat pictures.

Miata parts are super cheap, but I still really just want to build the G into a prepped ESP car. I think it'll be silly fun even though it's going to cost me a bit more. and buy a bit I mean a lot
