I don't post much anymore, but in June I bought a blown up 04 STI. Had TiC build a forged short block, assembled it myself and dropped it in with a new South Bend Clutch. Since it's been up and running, here are the little improvements I've made.
Painted the naked STI logo and the shift pattern:
Polished the headlights
Changed the HVAC, lock ring and boost gauge bulbs to red LED's from the horrid and mismatched 80s green
And installed Rally Armor Scoobies for Boobies mudflaps. Because racecar.
