    Currently only done one side with lots of shouting and abuse and rear brake pads didnt fit ..

    Well i got to double check what pads i got.. i forgot.. But i decided to order some pads from brakes direct.. i wanted to try out the QFM-HPX range as i was reading not so great reviews of the NS400 P.Mu's then at the same time i thought you know what.. lets get some braided lines too! so i ordered some from Speed science.. so i am waiting for it all the arrive then i can resume..

    What's taking so long? when i first started i killed one red back that appeared from under some trims under the car at the back and didnt think anything of it.. then killed another.. then one more and thought.. yeah its a next week job or maybe i will fix it all with fire type of thing.. LOL

    Cheers Austro for the part numbers i shall write them down for future use! Initially i was going to hold off from doing the front brake pads and hunt down some DC2R calipers but then i thought i doubt i would see any cheap pairs in the near future..

    Had the QFM HPX pads on my old wrx. Would recommend them for daily. Good feel and minimal dust

    I have finally now finished brake pads, trailing arm bushes! and goodridge braided lines with new brake and clutch fluid! rear LCA with some cheap rear camber adjusters.. i should really make a thread about my car but i am mehh...

    While doing my front brakes and lines i found my CV's were shot.. Left side was outer boot.. right side was inner boot.. so need to save up and do a swap over with some cv company..

    side note. my car looks phat now.. i don't care about it being low.. i care about function and how it performs.. lol

    here's an entree!




    Oh i have an exhaust system header to muffler.. but i just need to take it to the exhaust shop to get them to fix it.. but i been thinking about buying an Xforce Twinloop barrel.. unsure on reviews though as i don't have enough in the coffers for a mugen..

    Cheers Alex! i will definitely be getting it then! originally i was trying to get the oval muffler version but they were out of stock aus wide with no ETA on restock times.. so i gave it a miss for a bit!

    So it has been awhile.. finally got the Xforce twinloop universal muffler fitted with 2nd hand Xforce D16 manifold.. hahaha sounds great!

    nice and quiet still with a decent deep note... I also retrofitted EG skunk 2 Pro C .. unfortunately the picture above of my green hatch with those rims didnt fit.. so i have gone back to stock steelies with new rubber.. I am gonna try and find those trailer supply companys that can do better offsets for steel rims..

    now i am pretty much done and ready to save up for the parts to do my B18C5 swap
