Own struts. Idea's inverted monotubes with the valving being Bilstein circle track stuff... non adjustable for the first version anyway, but easy enough to just replace the whole damper part with another differently valved one. Eventually, if it works out and proves necessary, provision will be there to move over to Penske internals and external compression can, but a digressive valved strut that I can revalve myself and that will control any spring rate I want it to? Yeah, that's a good starting point.

fun fact: if you start up a WRX without the intercooler on and the downpipe open, it sounds like a cammed V8

















because it's loud as shit and it can barely idle

edit but yeah the new clutch, pressure plate, and resurfaced flywheel are in, and I swapped my test pipe in so I don't bottom out on my cat this winter. car drives awesome except for I still need to replace the front O2 sensor and bleed the clutch to bring the engagement point off the floor

I ran my 2.3T 'bird with an open pipe for a good portion of its life. I once popped the head gasket going well, very quickly through the middle of nowhere. Slept in the car, friend met me up the next day and we changed it on the side of the road. I cleared the oil-water from the turbo snail by hooking up the air meter directly to the throttle body, bypassing the turbo. Turbo spooling blew the shit sky high and sounded exactly like that doing so

You traded in the Camaro?

Good. Now buy a Mustang.

I hear those SL1 5-speeds are actually pretty peppy. I remember driving a cousin's automatic '99 once. I got on the freeway onramp and went WOT, the Check Engine Light started flashing right as I hit redline.
