So my laziness bit me in the butt
I didn't change out the gas tank, because I basically hate that job, and it turns out the tank was filled with crud. Consequently, I had fuel pick-up issues on the way to the track. I had to stop in Co Springs to drain and clean it as best I could, but it was very, very ugly. I couldn't run it at HPR safely, so I just instructed. My student had an Audi RS4, which was a pretty nice way to get around the track !!
I swallowed my pride, put my head down and swapped out the tank on Thurs. It sucked as expected, with temps close to 90F and high winds. I got it done in 9 hours with dirt in every orifice
and constant cursing (mostly at myself for not doing it the first time the rear end was out of the car) Problem completely solved
The car runs great again, and will get a romp at PPIR in three weeks. NASA is running it clockwise, which should prove interesting.
Another piece of laziness biting my arse: I didn't switch out the ABS control module either and have had the ABS light on since finishing the build, which is just annoying. It looks like I'll go ahead and swap that out too. Hopefully that extinguishes the light. I don't have a way to scan ABS diagnostics, so I'll just have to cross my fingers on that one.
I think I'm going to order a CF hood tomorrow. I'm so happy to be rockin' the wagon again. The OBS just didn't cut it. It's for sale BTW 2002 Subaru Impreza, Used Cars For Sale - Carsforsale.com
I think I have the silver tub sold, which will make my landlord happy.
