:( y-u-nuh-call?
Just got busy, Sean. I'll try to call you tonight. I just want to have a good 15-20 mins to chat. I've been running around a lot lately.

TO ALL SUBSCRIBERS/FORUM FOLK!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2014 is going to be an exciting year for me. I have a quick announcement for those that have dealt with me personally over the years with parts, vehicle projects and service.

I'm no longer a part of Forman Performance. I've left to pick up where I left off with Parts Distribution. My time at the shop was heavily occupied with customer service, management, coordination, etc... It was difficult to get creative about group buys, sell product and manage the parts side of things. Forman Performance is alive and well, and will continue to operate.

I'm preparing the launch of a new online-based parts business while also teaming back up with Premium Auto Styling to help expand the business to larger markets and appeal to more vehicle applications. In the interim, I can be reached by PM here.

My 08 WRX has got to go. I've invested a lot of time and money into the project over the years and it's at a point where it's no longer financially viable to keep a car of this caliber unless I plan more track time. With all the business and personal goals I have for 2014, I simply will not have the time to enjoy this car. Continuing to make payments on it, as well as insurance, is a lose-lose for me at this time. I also have my 96 Impreza which keeps whispering to me that she's ready for a swap. And well... I don't have the time or money for 2 projects. It's time to part the 08 WRX out. I will likely begin parting out before the end of this month and will have A LOT of parts for sale/trade. What I'll be looking to do is to get the vehicle back to 'as close to stock' as possible then either trade it in or sell it. When I list the parts, most of them will be For Trade Plus Cash. I just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up on this coming change. I appreciate very much people who have subscribed, followed and helped influence this build from the very beginning. It's been a fun journey, but all good things must come to an end.

sorry to hear another 08 is being parted out. Hopefully we can see another amazing build you will be starting with the 96.

That car is only planned to be very mild. Basic 2.0L swap w/ header, turboback, sti turbo+tmic, inj and pump. Planning to keep it at a mellow 280-290whp. Something reliable with more focus on the suspension.

With my new business project, I am considering starting development of products for the new MY2015. At this point, however, only time will tell.

Sorry to hear you're parting it out - you've been a huge inspiration to a lot of people on here (myself included). I hope you put a thread up for your 96 build - I'd love to see what you do even if it is 'mild'. Good luck with your business project as well!
