Clutch issue went away, no problems since. Not sure, leaning toward a sticky throttle plate. But dunno.
Anyway, dropped it off at the dealer today to have the recalled front control arms looked at. Apparently they were so rusted that they could not let the vehicle leave until it is repaired ... at least thats what they tell me. They set me up with a rental from enterprise, paid for by them of course.
So now Im stuck with this POS for the next week to two weeks ...
Oh and the Tsudo cat-back should be here tomorrow. Will be installed as soon as its back from the dealer with its crispy new control arms.
Plans are to work my way up the car from there ... Stromung HFC cat pipe, Borla or Borla knock-off headers, hybrid intake inspired by Thegoldenfist's setup, then maybe the red intake mani from an STI, but not sure about that one gotta do some research and see if there is a reasonable difference.
