Thanks, and for the coolant i welded up an aluminum tube that runs the length of the radiator with two inlets/outlets. Its a bit dodgy, but i was under a bit of a time crunch trying to get the project "completed" over winter break from school.
I nearly wish that i had gone for the standalone ecu, for sure the UK ecu helped as I didnt have to worry about wiring or electronics looking for a auto trans. But I would imagine since the entire car is essentially a 06 legacy (at least from the electronics point of view) all the dealer had to do was register the Immobilizer chip in the key.
I know that over in the UK more people explore retuning the stock with ecutek, I would like to try and explore that to perhaps switch to e85 and try to get as much out of the NA H6 as possible. I have a few ideas to play around with once summer comes
