    Ok, so you all know it... The 08 FXT brakes are whack! I know, I know, I gotta get the brembos from an 04-06 STI, bla bla, kartboy thicker parking brake shoes and adapter plate, yadda yadda. I've gone down that rabbit hole. It's ends $2500 in the hole. But do I need the brembos? Probably not...
  4. Sourcing Parts & Accessories
    I’m sure everyone loves rare parts, but digging too deep and dropping a pretty penny is even more fun imo. Everyone should drop their favorite score or what rare piece you’re looking for! i just got these tail lights and i can’t wait to install them! Also hoping to score a garnish one day.

I found a few posts about the same car as mine but it was a few years earlier (1998). my ecu is (1F 22611 AG380) would it be tunable with the right software or do i need to go with a Enduring Solutions or a ECULabs ecu addon? The main part I...
  7. Transmission and Driveline
    This is probably a dumb question but will the passenger side (left side) CV axle be the same as the driver side of a USDM model? Or will it be flipped? I noticed while changing my oil that the inner CV boot is torn, so I figured I'd replace the whole axle instead of dealing with re-packing a...

    I have a pair of JDM headlights from an SG9. They fit the 2003-2005 SG. They have the smoke/gray housing and not orange reflector. They DO NOT include connectors or pigtails, you will need to fabricate your own. Both are tested and working (ballast, bulb, leveling motor). The leveling switch is...
