Figured I'd update this since I've been doing a few more things here and there.

First some underhood bling.. Cusco FSTB




Then I installed an OEM outback hitch ( subaru P/N: L101SAG000). Also put the stock mufflers back for the time being. Overall a pretty easy install, definitely helps to have a second set of hands to help initially hold and line up the hitch. Hangs a little lower than I expected but is fairly well hidden when viewed from some angles.

Mainly got this to tote mountain bikes around, and didn't want to go the roof rack route. I didn't go the roof rack route because I don't want to remove the JDM rain visors and I want to be able to carry more than two bikes.

Now to shop for a rack.. anyone have recommendations for a nice 4 bike rack that mounts to a 1.25" receiver?








After that I saw some pics of TSi's ABP LGT and decided to get some CF . Got the R-REV scoop extension and eyelids. Also re-painted my grill satin black since it had taken quite a beating over winter (see first set of pics):

After that, replaced the stock CBE with a Bosal/SPT v.1.5 CBE. They were on clearance for $375+ shipping, so I jumped on it.




stock mid y v.s. bosal mid/y


tiny bit of clearance between Rallitek 19mm RSB and the exhaust on the driver's side:




fitment issue:




Now running a full aftermarket exhaust system which consists of: GrimmSpeed PnP exh. manifold & crossover-> GrimmSpeed UP-> Cobb HFC DP-> Bosal 1.5 CBE.

Which sounds like this:

Then FINALLY installed my suspension set up. A local LGT owner came by to help out which was awesome. Installed Bilstein HD struts, LGT wagon pink springs, Spec.B front top hats. Just got it aligned today and am super happy with it. Comfortably ride and excellent handling. Handling mods at this point are:
Bilstein HD struts (Spec.B front tophats)
LGT wagon STI Pinks
Rallitek 19 mm RSB (w/Kartboy endlinks)
Cusco front strut tower bar
17x7.5 Rota SDRs (~17 lbs a piece) w/225/45 RE960AS
Hawk HPS pads all around









and after shot just the next day (springs not quite settled). Also removed and sold the CF scoop extension:

Gotta say, wish I would have done it a long time ago. Really makes a world of difference, very happy with the set up.

Yesterday added some LED lights. Used the R-Rev interior kit on the map lights, dome light, and puddle lights. Diode Dynamics blue trunk LED and license plate LEDs. Kind of hard to take pictures, and I just got a new camera, but here they are:

Map lights only:


puddle lights:


trunk LED:


super bright dome light on:


license plate:

I like all except for the plate lights. I like to run a little more stealth than that. I've been using the LED bulbs too, and they burn out relatively quickly, so I would recommend putting the plate back to stock and keeping those bulbs as backups for the interior... if they're the same bulb that is.

I have LED bulbs for my license plate lights and *knock on wood* I have never had any problems with them.

Only done a couple things to the car lately. Painted my AT shifter surround black to lose the chrome. Well actually painted a test fit piece from R-Rev, but its just pretty much the same things as the stock piece.

Stock chrome v.s. black:

In the car:




Also installed an itsme RacerX FMIC and got a re-tune by Infamous1. Hits 19 PSI peak boost and running a good bit more timing, 0 knock across the board too . Also while I had to bumper off doing the FMIC, added some new used headlights. They are cleared 05 headlights w/ABP eyebrows from HKC-Speed. There is a Halo kit in them as well that I still need to wire up. They look a little cleaner than the stockers with smoked film and CF eyelids.




"new" v.s. old:






everything put back together:


Then added a bit of engine bay bling, SPT v.2 oil cap and battery tie down:
