cwinterbower is more helpful than not
Garage
haha all I see is that Yakima with the downtube clamp, kills me a little inside to think of a bike going up there dropping rocks and gravel all over the car. I will rack mine for skis and the board, but my bike rides on my other car. Of course it is a big 45lb freeride bike with 2.5" tires that grab alot of rocks and dirt but I digress...

Can't wait to hear the numbers.

I read through the thread, but I didn't really pick up on why you decided to start over. Did you just like the widebody, or did you get a good trade. I remember when my car was only two years old and the dealership offered almost as much as I paid for it to trade it in. I should have taken it.

i traded in a work truck on the 09 so i had some negative and the interest was kinda high because of it. getting the 11 the payment droped about a $100 a month which i needed (broke college guy). yes i love the look better and i really wanted white! i was also scared of the 09 needing work like a clutch and the front end really needed a paint job! instead of paying all that money on the 09 i got a new clutch, motor, tranny, white etc. and yes the dealer gave me a good deal. i paid invoice $23000 back in 09 and they gave me $20500 with a long hard 36k miles.

Can't wait to see what you do with this one.

so my last weigh in was today since i just completed the motor and everything. theres not much else to lose besides a CF trunk and hood but im pretty happy! 3090 lbs fully fueled. makes me happy because its lighter than my 09 since i removed a little more and when i go to the strip it will only weigh 3020 lbs! if and when i get CF parts it will be under 3000

also since im toying with the GT build ill need brakes. people with the new Wilwood 4 pot fronts lost almost 30 lbs there too so it will be a for sure thing under 3000 lbs. i'd probably want the 6 pot so it might only be 10-20 lbs then.

Is that weight without you in the car? If not, I call BS or I'm really overestimating my weight when I go to the drag strip because I gut the car and with me in it I still estimate 3200lbs wet. I weigh everything that comes out too...

Then I approve

I estimate mine is 3000# dry before fuel and myself when I take it to the strip... But I gut everything behind the front seats.

i started making AOS's today for the people who want them. look at my pics and you'll see what im talking about (page 5). only things that are different is everything is 1/2 now instead of 3/8 and the top and sides are welded; there not brass fittings anymore. also the bottom is not a plastic fitting, its brass now.

i changed my oil and tranny fluid today. i figured id give the tranny a little more break in time (3497 miles) than the motor. im glad i didnt wait any longer. i just hate the idea of break in oils staying in something for so long! i mean the tranny oil stays in there till 30k! i believe subi uses synthetic now for everything (which i dont like the idea for motor oil when its brand new!!) but it was still time for a change.

im keeping with RedLine but i decided to go with 5w40 instead of 5w30. im still getting oil in my turbo compressor like the 09 from the seals so im hoping the thicker weight will be better. this was the motors 2nd change with 3000 miles on it and the first was done at 400 something. next change im going to do an oil analysis and compare it to my 09 results. since i have an AOS now i want to see the results of a full 3000 mile change where water from condensation and blow by are allowed to get back into the block. on the 09 i just had a catch can so nothing could get back. i HOPE everything is the same and the numbers are not too far off.

as for the tranny, since subi now uses synthetic i can say i did not feel a difference like i did on my 09. however for only 3497 miles it looked like shit. our drain plugs are magnetic and i had a ton of metal shavings all over it. you can see in the pics. if you guys haven’t done this yet on brand new trannys id do it ASAP. since the magnet was so covered in metal who knows if there was room for anymore to stick to it. during the drain i hope everything came out if there was something. i used RedLine 75w90 NS per RedLines recommendation. ill be doing the rear diff tomorrow because i dont have a pump to get it into the diff. the diff will use just 75w90. If you do change your tranny fluid be warned, it smells like dead fish and shit.
