Not good.

So I decided to start up the WRX today, since it's still without axles and let it run for a bit...So I go inside to grab a drink and speak on the phone with my wife for a few. Upon my returning I see smoke....SMOKE!!!! I grab the fire extinguisher just in case only to discover that the water plug on the side of the turbo is leaking antifreeze on the turbo...So I am waiting to let the car cool off a bit and go see if I can't remedy this issue. I doubt it is anything serious as I can get to the plug with ease. Just sucks that I have to do this now....

Funny you mentioned that, the price for parts are getting expensive...I will be sure to pass that down to the buyer...LOL
Meh it's an easy fix though, just sucks to have to do it on a hot motor...
