I think it looks great and vote for keeping OEM tail lights, but it's all up to JOVI-BOI. You know what really sucks? Taking your time planning for turbo. But it's worth it! Be patient and vigilant, it'll happen when it's meant to. Just keep stashing away pennies towards it. I try to put a small portion of my paycheck towards a personal savings that's meant for just fun stuff. So usually $500 or something and just try to be consistent about taking the same amount out each paycheck. It'll add up before you know it and you'll be chopping WRXs in no time.

So a few updates:

Got new taillights off FTSpeed. OLM carbon fiber tailights. Love the night time look. I'll get around to take more pictures soon.Finally my turbo build is coming along. I bought intercooler piping from JDL coated in red. Freaking amazing in person. Also copped a deal on a JDL UEL manifold with downpipe and wastegate.

Next on the list of mods is:

Turbo
Intercooler
Ecutek.

Great find on the manifold and downpipe! Slow and steady means a build will be everything you're hoping for and then some

Updates: it's been a while. With school, work and other things going I haven't been posting anything but I have certainly been buying.

Parts that I have acquired since the last post:

Grimmspeed ebcs
Radium fuel rails
Dw 700cc injectors
Verus fuel rail brackets (ordered today).
Turbosmart BOV
Intercooler
Mishimoto plug and play slim fans (being shipped as I type)
Megan Racing radiator (being shipped as I type)
New to me JDL 3" Overpipe.

Will be buying a new gt2860rs turbo from a friend of mine this week and get the all lines necessary from jdl as well.

Also a patient at my job backed into my car this week. They won't be going through insurance so if they can fork me that check, I'll most like just get the fender fix and get the morimoto headlights I've been wanting or just get an RBV1 kit

Be careful with the Shitimoto fans. They're known to allow the car to overheat. I'd definitely recommend spending the extra on SPAL fans. / JDL shroud.

Sadly I'm thinking of getting rid of this car. Sigh... after getting that ding and getting the new fenders installed my mind just felt instant regret.

Why? It's your project car, have fun with it. What's the worry over a little ding when you've had this car for a long time now and have also been engaged in your project for some time as well?

Shit always happens, no matter what car you own, fix that baby up and move on and have fun with it.
