    Looks great. I was following your worklog.

    Also on a side note how much of a difference in handleing did you feel once you bought the sway bar? I am thinking of getting one for my car and wondered.

      Nice job! Why didn't you put the computer backwards, with the wires on the back?

        'cause in the beginning when the power supply was strapped to the side i drilled the holes for case mounting... There was also no way to put it in the other way round once it was mounted. the position of the old PSU was chosen because of easyer wiring. so after i installed OPUS i could not be bothered with marking out and drilling new holes for mounting...

        Looks great. I was following your worklog.
        Thanks a lot....

        I wrote before:
        The shocks are on the car........ and wow....... I'm speechless. It's amaising what it does to the car.... There is this one nice road on my way home with 2 turns one after another. Before i was scared clearing them at 70mph(110kph)(the back of the car began to drift outward), but after install it was handling exelent at 95mph(155kph) and thats in a rain.....i'm still speechless.
        And next day when the sway bar was installed it became even more impressive.... doesn't feel like Lamborgini but close.... real close...

        Still waiting for shrut bars(correct me if im wrong) since the bodywork begins to make noises when you go in to 90deg turn too fast...

        And can't wait till supercharger comes in....



        woopass....

            Just wondering... why are there so many Ladas behind your car?

            EDIT: Oh ... it's Russia.

              Just happens that it was just out of the workshop and those ladas are just standing around the petrol station....

              P.S. There are by far many more import cars in russia then Ladas, volgas and the rest of that russian **** they call cars....

                  Nice, glad to see somebody who's actually located in Russia.
                  Where did you get that POS system? I want one, my tablet is too slow and I don't want to get a Lilliput.

                    Looks great, you've done very good work! My only complaint is that the wires in the trunk could be a little cleaner, but I don't guess many people see your trunk anyway, so whatever works!

                    Keep it up!

                      when i purchased an anti-sway bar for my rx-7 the difference was amazing. i could rip that thing around corners like there was no tomorrow. it will be my next mod on this car... you cant go wrong with it... well worth the money.

                        I wonder how an anti-sway bar would help an Impreza... Those things already take corners like mad due to the low centre of gravity and AWD, but an anti-sway bar must make it even better.

                          The screen is from EloTouch its 12'1. As for the box it's No Name. I've got 3 left after our restaurant closed down and most of stuff got sold off. i still have 2 screens, but no use for them now.

                            Me too but then i came across stuff for Hyuindai tiburon, which is exactly the same engine and engine compartment. since that engine is in all V6 Kias all of the stuff is intercangeble. (e.g. my suspention was for Hyuindai Sonata EF)

                            At the moment i'm still against the exterior mods. It's real nice when someone wants to race you and then you shoot off the green light like a firework. Makes people wonder.

                            I'm planning to clean up later when i will have time... as for now

                              Thats my plan for my car too.

                              Man I wish I had the money for a TRD supercharger for my car. Well have fun and enjoy your car. It will smoke like anyone w/ a stock car, haha.
