Hey jedi sol, been watching your build thread(s) for ages and just wanted to say you're doing a great job. Car looks eco as hell, and still retains its coolness.

EDIT: Congrats on the front page!

Uh... why don't you just get an impreza? You'd save even more money. Having an STI and eco modding it doesn't make much sense.

Well, to you, no it doesn't. To me I can understand it. If I hadn't wrecked my camry, I would still be driving it to this day, and I would be content with the 28-32mpg I was getting out of it. Why? Because I loved that car. I loved everything about it, the way it drove, the way it looked, the way it felt (interior wise). Sure my insight gets double what I used to get in my camry but man, I loved that damn car.

Jedi_sol, what happens if you decide to slam the car around with that grill block on there? Will it overheat?

Reason's why i didn't get "just" an impreza"

1) It doesn't have a hood scoop


2) It doesn't have a wing


3) It doesn't sound like this


4) it doesn't have 305 horsepower

5) If ever wanted to go rallying...it can't do this


With an Sti...i can have ALL of that....with a cherry on top

Actually, slamming it around promotes better cooling due to more air flow through the bumper.

My main issue is when cruising on the freeway, there is less airflow, therefore, the temps start to creep up a little. That's why I am planning on shaving about 1-1.5" off the lower grill block, that way i don't have to worry about temps all year.
