But while it's doing it if you rev it does it increase? Either way I would go to the dealer right away

I bought a used set for $350, so I thought I'd give them a try. The only info that I could find about them was on this forum (quite negative), as you noted.

I was thinking that the elimination of the cat should make a difference too.

I didn't want to wait 6 to 8 weeks for the Vishnu headers.

Which header do you think offers the best bang for the buck?

CERBERUS
Please explain the battery swap. Are you serious on this that it does make a difference?

Best bang for buck, IMO, is Rev Works. They hand make all of them, they have been tried and tested, and they are a reputable company that knows their way around Subaru engines and parts. Look for a used one. Once in awhile they come around and you can get it for a little more than you got those AP ones for. The sound is good and the performance is good.

OK, some photos of the wheels without the stupid chrome center caps, and with the new blue Muteki lug nuts. We weren't sure if we'd like the blue and only grabbed them because they were immediately available since I lost the key to our original locking black Mutekis. Color me stupid.

We actually like the blue lugs - they're subtle because they sit deep in the rim enough that it's not super ricey. One of our goals with the car is for the casual observer (non-car folken) to think it might have come from the factory as it is. Or at the very least to keep it looking classy and upscale (nevermind the big white racing numbers on the driver's side, LoL . They'll come back off after the next track day).









We added the Berk Dual Tip Muffler Delete to give her the voice she deserves. It also filled in those huge diffuser cutouts, so @humfrz should be happy with us now.

Rexpeed Blue wide angle mirrors, Grimmspeed hood struts. Supertek shorty antenna. They are nice little additions that I think help clean up the car before the big purchases start happening.

Tonight I will be putting in some new Diode Dynamics white LEDs for my clear side markers and my FT-86 passenger side exahust cover.

I intentionally withheld any info on these to see what comments they might get without you knowing what they are.



Since no one has replied "those suck!" yet, I guess I can tell you that they are Pilot Automotive PM-552WK tips for $12.96/ea. from Wal-Mart! I was walking down the automotive aisle when I spied them. For the price, I'm happy.



$30 and up everywhere else I've seen them: http://www.wheelskin.com/pm-552wk.html

the car should have came with nice exhaust tips from the factory regardless of oem exhaust peformance

the tips really look nice fills in the gap too
and yes I know the car is built to budget for us guys "affordable entry level sports car" but still nicer exhaust tips from the factory shouldn't cost that much for production budget....
