Moog's BRZ was pulling away from the WRX STI in the corners at the race track. In this episode we install some swaybars, links and an anti lift kit to improve the handling so we can REMATCH it against the naturally aspirated Subaru BRZ ✌

Mighty Car Mods at 15:25 just as you said this, some Tryhard passed my house in his Impreza with a chopped exhaust and a “pSHHHHHHHIHHH” that is probably connected to the aux on his subwoofer box. I swear' Rubi Sue just passed my house at that exact moment guys.!

In my 99 2.5rs I was on coilovers and instantly regretted them. They looked and handled good but you would literally break your back daily driving. Rather then going back to stock I went to some used JDM KYB Wrx shocks and struts and for me they have perfect stiffness from the shorter springs. Probably the best mod I've done.

18:57 I always thought they were called Spigot Rings... I had a set from MOMO back in the day, I paid £550 for a set of 15" MOMO Corse wheels, had them fitted to my K11 Super S... btw, love the K10 March ST... I used to follow Cisco with a Blue Super S in Australia - that was a naughty little K11.

i had a gc8 the first day i went around a hairpin corner i turned and the back of the car wanted to keep going straight just about killed myself., took it at about 40kms, next day same corner with a rear swaybar on medium setting i took that same corner at 70kms and was perfect. if you have a gc8 wrx first mod go see TUSPEED in coburg and buy a rear gc8 swaybar, approx$200-$300

Marty, there is an OE Subaru part that is an O2 sensor extension harness, probably more commonly used on 2000s era models, rear O2 sensor.

The lebanese style "pizza" is actually called a man'oushe, typical lebanese on-the-go breakfast! What you have there is half "jebne" (=cheese) and half "lahem b'ajine" (=minced meat)! If i can advise you another tasty option get half cheese and half zaa'tar (based on oregano)! Glad to see my home country mentioned on my most favourite channel! Keep it up guys! Loving these videos (i might be biased as i own an 86 and can relate xD)

Lads you’ve got the large chamfered washers(alk) around the wrong way. Chamfer faces the bushing, otherwise the flat face will chew out your new bushing. Reference “pic 2” in the guide. ✌️

Jn pretty surprised you guys didn't get the rear subframe lock down bolts. Without a doubt the cheapest best thing you can do to this chassis. Eliminates the rear body lag

I love my koni adjustable strut inserts, originals struts with the right height stiffer springs. I have everything I want it's comfy and handles like it's on rails. I haven't done a white line suspension upgrade yet haven't found the need but identifying old tired suspension components is a must I just chose to go with stock replacements. Love it.

Blade adjustable sway bars, have a thin, wide sway bar link, That is flexible in one plane and very rigid in the other plane, and they swivel between soft and firm and are usually cockpit adjustable.

Traditional or heim-joint end links are better. A good quality ball-and-socket type end link will be freer-moving than a urethane type, and the urethane bushings in the end links twist and compress, effecting the geometry, and eventually become worn. It's like you said about replacing the sway-bar mount bushings to better cope with the stiffness of the sway bar; ideally you would have bearings at most pivots in the suspension for a more linear actuation, in this case of the sway bar mechanism, and for a more free-moving, and therefore more functional, suspension as well.

In my personal experience with installing the white line antisway bar on a 1998 wrx, I highly recommend you do not use the original balljoint style end links as it WILL ALWAYS be noisy for all but 5 minutes after putting more lube on the bushes as the whole sway bar will shift side to side. Had so many issues, bar on and off relube, repositioning etc so many times after thinking it’s fixed and the noise it makes is so loud. Not speaking from experience *shifty eyes 👀

you should never solder your o2 sensor wiring, use crimp connectors, an o2 sensor breathes through the cables(wires)

Fun fact, whiteline have a giant catalogue for most performance cars under the sun ... but for FD Rx7's only 1 item... no sway bars, no control arms, or anti lift kits or anything, just one specific bush... and nothing else... why is this a fun fact? FD Rx7's were so perfectly built for handling from factory that the only thing you need to do to them is put an excellent set of coilovers on them and they are cornering weapons, whiteline knows this so they don't have a catalogue of parts for the fd.

The anti-lift kit was the best mod ever on a sti, then its front n rear sway bars. All other suspensions didnt yield as much performance per price value. Also a tip, add some locking collars to the rear sway bar, as the rear bar tends to shift to 1 side under heavy cornering. This will prematurely wear out the endlinks as it will place a load on the endlinks constantly and also not be vertical at rest.
