When the Turbo section moves on from the damn tunes and discusses which PARTS MAKE THE MOST POWER, it will be a lot better. Coming from the honda-tech and evom boards this place is very much in it's infancy.

I'll probably head up there again. It's hard to turn down free pizza and car talk even if they're Subarus.

So been hunting for some coilovers, found 2 in the FS threads. Just having a hard time deciding. Also the price difference is about 200~ roughly. Looked at reviews etc. Just wondering which will last longer for DD..and more reliable. I know the BC Racing Coilovers go real low, Tein on the other side..idk? and they both have dampening/camber adjustments. I'm a very indecisive person >< Opinions?

i'm always weary about buying used suspension parts. especially with more than 5k miles. personally, i'd stay away from the first set b/c it has at least 12-15k miles is waht he thinks. the 2nd set...well not many people ride on those and i'm not really too familiar with that brand...

Thanks for the advice Michael. Yea..I just saw the post about 12-15k miles. True, not many people ride on the BC Racing Coilovers, they're common in the Sti, Evo, and Lexus car scene I think. 5k is probably just past the break-in point, no?

Hm, now I'm having second thoughts.

setting up the computer to read was a bitch to do, but after it was all set up and going, it was all good;

i think my cable can do up to 2010 year or whatever year it is that you have to break a pin on the cable (cus well i don't want to do that)
