Couldn't agree more. I got more "go when you hit the pedal stuff today" for the Scoob. Someone local had brand new TGV deletes and a VF48 turbo with 4500 miles on it for a good price, how can you say no to that?

I will! The engine stuff will be a little while as I'm not exactly excited to pull the intake and turbo, and most of that stuff has to be done at the same time. TMIC, SAP delete (my valves failed), up pipe, downpipe, engine mounts, etc. It's not going to be fun.

I did, however, get 04 STI OEM Springs and some WRX AGX struts, so I'll retain stock suspension travel, all while lowering the car a pretty significant amount. I'm sure my camber curve will be terrible but I'm not too worried about it (also likely will have similar dynamic toe issues). From what I've read the "roll center kit" does little to correct this, but it is available if I deem it necessary.

I ended up getting wheel bearings, control arm bushings and a bunch of other stuff that should really make the car feel fresh. I think the STI steering rack will make a pretty significant difference in feel, too.
