I like to think of this article this way. For only a meer 5-6k in parts you too can have STI power numbers and similar handling, without the added STI badging, ricer-fly-by attempts, and higher insurance costs.
However, deep down I understand if I had just saved my pennies for a few years I coulda just bought an STI to begin with. :'(
Props to COBB none the less, I sure plan on hitting them for my part needs for most save a few select parts. ;D
