Very Clean!
I like the SWP with Carbon accents - sweet subtle!
Was that momo knob a direct fit with threads, etc?

Thanks for the props everyone!
I can't wait for Phase 2 - going to beef up the hp for the track!!!

To answer your questions...

KB Smoka ... "is the Cusco bar for the Legacy? Does that fit?" Not sure if it is the same one for the legacy - the one I bought was specified for the 08 WRX. I got it from Rallysportdirect.com.

Saint ... "Where did you get the carbon fiber film to go over the chrome?" I bought the film at Canadian tire, but it is TrimBrite brand - available at a lot of places in the states.

quattroconvert ... "Was that momo knob a direct fit with threads, etc?" The Momo knob comes with set screws and rubber inserts - not threads to allow it to thread right onto my Cobb SS

Yeah I agree - fantastic work here ICY' ! How much so far, ballpark, in mod cash if you don't mind me asking?

Never thought about it myself, but the carbon fiber (carbon fiber is good) seems to be the best answer for chrome elimination which would work with any color of car as well - good call!

I live in Canada so getting parts shipped here cost a lot, not to mention added taxes to get stuff across the border but 13K is a fair estimate. No deals on much of anything. Wheels and rubber cost me a mint - 1K/corner (750 for bbs and 250 for toyo)

13K - that's not chump change... Well good luck and hey if you've got the cash then why not right? Also, it makes sense, from my point of view, to deal with sus., rubber, cosmetic things, internal fluids etc first, then on to exhaust etc for power if need be next, like it seems to be what you are doing. Btw, any reason in particular why you went with Toyo rubber?
