Basically pulling out anything unnecessary behind the driver's seats and further items in the engine bay. I'll take some pics of the progress today and give a detailed list of what I've done and plan to do.

My main concern is a lot of the weight I've removed is from the back of the car; I would really prefer it the other way around.

Well yesterday I had the vf39, Sti top mount, 3 port installed and a dyno tune. During the tune my tuner noticed it was enriching like it should causing it to run lean. While boosting. So I go back wed to have new fuel pump and fuel filter installed

I backed out of the driveway this morning and noticed a puddle under the car. Threw up the e-brake and jumped out slapped my finger in that mess and sniffed away. Thank God axle boot leaking not a puddle of oil. Ordered up parts gonna fix on friday.

240 thousand km oil change. Still running strong and not burning oil, although I'm running a heavier Rotella T as it's a protection oil.

Have a slight leak at one cam seal that drips onto the header an causes a slight oil burning smell in the cabin momentarily, until I set out. I bought cam and front crank seals to fix this but it's almost time for a timing belt change as well, so it make sense to do them together.

Only hesitation is that I'm planning a stock rebuild in the fall, and that would be an even better time to do this work, if the slight oil burning smell doesn't get worse.

Just finished re-assembling my front grille after painting it all matte black to match the black housings I'm installing this week. Whole lot better than 2 tone!

Went and got all the pieces of the car put back together after the wrap. The 2 places in town wanted over $3000 to wrap my car. I said NO and ordered it and did it myself. I saved over $2700 bucks. It looks awesome for my first wrap.

Thanks Adair. I did a lot of looking on line and found only a few WRX's with the Matte Green. So I picked it, The Vinyl wrap turned out great except for a couple spots are bubbled up and I am hoping they will come out.
