-Cool Kimo, I just might have to do this as well as, at the same time, black out my headlights. Always liked the look of that.

-Macipusy, I have confirmed, my buddy has a set he is selling. $100 I think he wants for them.

-I saw the car you were talking about. The skirts were gone but the rear lip was still there, but didn't bother with anything.

-I just don't know how much better it will make the car look. Black on black plus no front lip... I dunno.

-These are the n/a fuel rails I picked up, just in case. These injectors are confusing me. Some say I need n/a rails others say they'll drop into the turbo rails, etc.

Wagon is looking on point man. Wheels are perfect, so factory fresh! Think it fits the wagon better than the sedan. bigger injectors fit in turbo rails.

-Thanks Tony, appreciate it.
-So I tried out one of these yellow top injectors. They did not work. In these pics, you can see the differences, especially with the o-ring placement. Stock 370 pink, 440 grey and 440 yellow:
Image

Image

-With the yellow top, I dunno if I wasn't pushing hard enough but the bottom o-ring just wouldn't seal and would just dump fuel into the head. So I give up on these.

-Here is a few pics from this weeks meet up.

-Yea no problem.

-Also, the injector caps, n/a and turbo caps, neither of those covered the injector like they do on the pinks or grays. They also left a gap between cap and fuel rail.

Hi,
Just to clarify on those injectors.
- Those gray are the 440/450cc that fit the stock EJ22T rails. (aka known as 380's in the UK)
- Those yellow sure look like USDM STi/XT/GT side-feeds that are referred to as '550's' and flow 525cc or close.
----- The 550's will fit the stock '92+ NA rails (both 2.2 SOHC and '96+ EJ25D DOHC)

The JDM Yellow side-feeds are referred to as 480's (they flow about 470cc) over here and 440's in the UK (just to confuse us all!) and they will fit the stock EJ22T rails, too....they look just like the gray injectors:

-Installed the garage door front lip. Came out good but probably could of done it better by taking off the front bumper, plus did it at night with just cell phone light.

-FMIC soon to come. Picked up a kit today for an 02-07 wrx, I think it is, with bunches of extra piping. Got it for a low price too! I'll make it work!

-Meets happen almost every week here in Denver. Not sure now since we got our first snow.

-Yes, scoop is off an 02-03 wrx. You can even get them off foresters.

-Your welcome for the video. Glad it helped for you. I've always felt a difference in the cars performance after every time I've put seafoam in.
