Fujitsubo parts for our cars are generally not available in Canada since they are expensive which translates to a much smaller demand. Even for my 02 WRX, I had to drive down to Buffalo to get the Fujitsubo Legalis R.

I personally bought my Authorize R from RHD Japan.

FRSports in California also has Fujitsubo parts. I bought the Fujitsubo Front Pipe from them since the Front Pipe is a North American exclusive piece and cannot be ordered from Japan.
http://www.frsport.com/index.php?tar...d&q=fujitsubo+

~ In regards to comparison I'm sorry that I can't help you since I have never experienced those exhausts. All I can tell you is the Fujitsubo would probably be quieter since it's considered one of the quietest exhausts on the market.

All i experienced in this car was the Greddy SP Elite Axel Back & Invidia Q300.

The Authorize R is quieter than the Greddy. I believe it's even quieter than the Q300.

Weight wise, it's lighter than the Invidia Q300. (Greddy is a axel back, not catback so can't compare)

~

I'll leave you with this.
Fujitsubo is known more for high quality OEM+ characteristics. They even make the STI exhaust for the BRZ TS model in Japan. They just brand it as STI.
If your looking for high quality, made in Japan exhausts that are quiet than Fujitsubo is for you.
(That being said, they do offer more race oriented exhaust called the Authorize RM which is louder and double the price)

Hope this helps buddy. Take your time and make the right choice. There are a lot of good options out there
Thank you thank you... Hoping the performance package drops next year in Canada.

I can't see that happening from him - maybe his account was tampered with?

Is this allowed? Why don't the mods unlock him? He had a bad day, but overall he was a nice guy with good posts.

No, it is not allow to have a multiple accounts (against forum rule) & if we found out, he'll be perma-banned. No, didn't have a bad day, but he had a bad DAYS & we mods had to clean up the mess for several days. Result, one of the mod temp banned him (for 3 months). Yes, he's a great guy & I like him and wish for his return... but I'm not gonna favor him, just cause I like him.

Haha it's not like we have perma-banned him. It's up to him to come back or not, after temp-banned.

So, some updates. I've installed the STI Pink springs. Been loving them. They have given the car a mild drop with small improvements giving the car a OEM+ feel

The drop is 15mm.

I've also done an alignment as NV Auto & got some SPC camber bolts after letting the spring settle.

Lastly, got some Bridgestone Potenz S-04 Pole Positions. My new favorite tires!
