Some bits back from the powdercoaters. Mix of gloss and matte black parts.



Header tank looks a bit better now



Thermostat arrived so that got fitted too.




Just the PAS lines and boost pipes to come back now before we can drop the motor back in. I also hope to have the first batch of wingserts this week, so they will be going out to people as soon as they arrive and im happy that theyre 100%

not sure what you use your car for... but why did you go with the 160 thermo. IMO stay with stock (had the 160, low temps yes, killed gas mileage for some reason... think it was always in startup mode or something?)

coolant tank looks nice though.

Believe it or not i dont really push for times. The ring is such a dangerous place that if you start timing then you tend to push too hard, sometimes beyond your limits. At a local track its fine as you have plenty of runoff and lots of help at hand etc.
Pushing it on the ring is a gamblers game. my first ever drive there i knew nothing of the circuit and against all advise i went out in the rain. Even with only 330bhp the first 4 gears were useless to wheelspin, and i think i made a time of around 14 min!!
The track is dangerous, firstly its 147 corners and 20.8km long. So keeping your concentration for a complete lap is tough. Then you have the undulations. the difference between the highest and lowest point on the track is over 300m. Almost every corner is blind and so is every crest. So nothing to tell you if there is a crash or fallen biker on your next turn.
The weather is also crazy at the ring, on one lap you could be in rain, sleet, fog and sunshine all in one hit. And with the track being in the forest, leaves and tree sap are another obvious hazard. Not even mentioned slow traffic yet!!

On return from the ring on my first outing i decided to spend the next 6 months learning every single corner before i returned. This helped me hugely.

With only 330bhp on road tyres/brakes i managed an 8.40minBTG.

i havent timed my car there since. But i will return with over 500bhp

So we shall see

I learnt from watching hundreds of laps on the PC and driving gran turismo.
Nothing prepares you for the actual track but learning at least where youre going and the racing lines through sections makes the biggest difference.

I have a couple of tuition DVDs just for the ring that i watched over and over and over again till i could drive a lap in my head with my eyes closed and name every single corner.

Holy crap I just read this whole thread and all I have to say is that you sir are the man. Your attention to detail is absolutely amazing. This is easily the best Subaru out there hands down....no other car is so clean yet so custom.

I can not wait to see the final results. Great work!!




BTW i just voted for your friend...seems hes holding first place by 0.36%
