2016 Subaru STI Front Licence Plate Re-locator Mount When You Have a FMIC


Thanks to my buddy Jesse for helping me build this mount.

After having my FMIC installed I didn’t have a tow hook available on the front end of the car as the bumper beam was removed.  We chopped up the beam and welded a piece of flat iron then made a bend.  Worked out perfect.

Take a look at the pics.

During the whole Y2K scare there was a Flash game called Jake’s Booty Call. Click through stories where you play Jake aka Big Pimpin. The first 10 episodes are in the menu.


E85 initial tune on the STI


After 2 weeks in the shop I finally got my car back.  JohnJohn at Infront Automotive in Auburn, WA did a awesome job.  I can’t believe the power this thing puts out.  Slams you into the seat when the turbo comes on.  Hard to keep up with the shifts in first and second.  Stephanie and I took a test drive while really getting on it. Average of 10.3 MPG on E85. Here are the dyno reports.

Note: The small dips at low RPMs are due to wheel slips on the dyno.
