    ive been on usmb and yeah thats what ive noticed, the plan for now is lower with XT front struts and eibach 2.5x9" coil springs in back. put on a 2.5" or 3" turbo back straight pipe and make a 4x140 to 4x114 adapter throw on some old skool jdm wheels. Then, rock it as a daily until i finish up my EF build.

    thanks man. its down for the count now cuz of a blown headgasket and a cracked radiator and a broken hood latch cable but my gf really wants it so I might change the project to being in her name. I think she wants to EJ swap it and make it her nanny mobile. best girlfriend ever!

    Oh the woes of EA82T's. they really where great engines until Subaru introduced boost. I've heard stories about Possum Bourne carrying spare heads in his rally cars and swapping them mid-stage. There are some things you can do to increase the reliability. I thought about a CO2 fogger that only engages around WOT to keep the exhaust gas temps down and keep the gaskets from blowing, or worse, the heads cracking in half.
