Lets see today i went to a Subaru Dealer to get a few OEM parts. i needed to get a new Bypass line, the Air/Oil separator gasket and a Bov Gasket.Once i did all that i also spent about 5 hours sanding and priming my Sti Wing, paint should be going on tomorrow, and also i put in my new Headlights, plus while i was at it i Plasti-dipped my Mirrors Black.

I changed the oil in my car and had to do some trouble shooting. So I pulled the plugs to find that all four were way of. not only that they were all different. Anywhere from .0045 to .0055. So I changed them. I did get a good laugh though I asked the grumpy old man to hold the light at one point and he grabbed it and put it down right where I had sat it to give to him. He looked at me and said "What".
Geeze old guys.
Oh wait I am getting old.

THen I washed my car and wanted to brag about how clear ans swirl free my paint still is


And finally today I decided to fix the scratches on the radio the previous owner so kindly left behind for me

Well yesterday I installed my Nameless axleback (muffler delete) then tonight after work I tore my top cowl off, removed wipers and motor assembly and found my broken spot welds for my clutch and brake pedal assembly. So I drilled them out and bolted them...this might end up being a temp fix for now, but the clicking/squeking noise fleas getting pretty damn annoying

I have a local friend who has filed a class action lawsuit against SOA for this. He's been trying to get them to recall it. He's on here but don't get on much @armyofcase

Both new 02 sensors showed up today so I get to put them in this weekend. Going to see if my so called buddy will let me use his lift.

Today it was raining, and it will be rainy all week.
So yesterday I washed it, and put the cover on it that I bought last week.
Last week I also replaced three vacuum lines.

ahhh yeah

Bought the wife one of these



Annnnd immediately started gutting the WRX..... No longer on DD duty so I have the Corolla as my DD and the WRX is now the garage queen. So far I have it down about 250 lbs, aiming for 2750 wet with driver. I think that means I need to get it down another 150 or so, which is actually pretty easy with the level of weight reduction I'm going with.

For now I'll keep the original engine in it, but i may end up finally throwing that built block in it and pushing the stock turbo a bit further.
