    Re: r3v_v3ng3's 98 gt limited aka donatello

    Bought the car around summer of 09 with a blown clutch. Previous owner had a short shifter, blacked out the taillights, painted the stock gt wheels black and tinted it. My old computer crapped out so i don't have the older pics.

    2009
    installed ebay clutch (didn't last long because of the trans snout problem, which i didn't know at the time)
    ebay f&r strut bars

    rota wheels
    installed alarm

    2010

    installed the jdm goodies

    head gasket blew and i changed it and it crapped out on me again. So i decided to pull out the motor and rebuilt it





    installed act clutch

    rebuilt the engine

    2011
    removed my exhaust setup (header all the way to the muffler and transfered it to my bro's impreza) for smog. running stock right now

    painted the car


    swapped the kyb agx/intrax springs to eibach pro street coilover


    new wheels

    Re: r3v_v3ng3's 98 gt limited aka donatello

    when mounting a lip, i always find the center of the bumper and the center of the lip. i made mine stick out enough to where the center top edge meets the upper bumper lip (i've seen others tuck it in, which i didn't like how it looks) then just use a self tapping screw and work my way left and right until your near by the bend. then i follow the contour of the side and using a stick as a guide so it can stick out just like the bumper. i used a serrated knife to cut off the excess on the side corner.

    hard to explain but hope it helps.

    also if you paint the bumper lip(kinda) and the lip mounted on it black, it fools the eye that it seems like the lip is really big. almost like a cheap greddy lip

    It'd be really great if you could find out what those flares are. Plenty of members would follow your lead!

    BAD ASS!

    Is that a V-Limited Lip?

    Those flares + canards really make the lines of the legacy aggressive.

    A+ man keep up the killer clean look.

    Also how much machining was involved to fit those STi internals into the EJ25D?

    Thanks everyone. As far as the flares goes, the guy said its off a lexus. Bought two sets since I messed up the first one (150 shipped each set). I did told him alot of you guys been interested on it and told him maybe he can get it cheaper if he buys it in bulk.

    yes its a v-limited lip

    yes it does, the canards makes it flow better since the flares only covered about 2-3 inches of the bumper. i was surprised that it all worked out

    thanks

    there was no machining involved to fit the sti internals because when i rebuilt the engine i found out that it had a phase 2 block with the phase 1 head. Its a direct bolt on to the phase 2 block, just need to find out what piston you need (A or B). Crawford had this deal awhile back (200 shipped for the sti pistons/rods) and it had barely any miles. They said they have alot of new sti engines and tear it down to slap their product in, which was great

    I missed the STI internals part. So if you're running STi pistons, with a phase 1 DOHC, what kind of compression are you getting?

    And the flares - they're not Lexus GS flares are they?

    Try emailing crawford their info should be in the link http://www.rs25.com/forums/f14/t129185- ... d-new.html
    They might still have some. They actually posted it on pretty much all of the subaru forums except sl-i lol

    Damn i can't remember whats the compression ratio. I need to research it again. There was a post where brydon (rs25.com) where he breaks down the comp ratio. There was also a site that calculates it but its down.

    I think they're the IS

    That is what I was thinking. Let me do some comparisons.
