I put on the rest of the STi torsion bars. I need to take a broken bolt out tomorrow, then I can put the rear sway bar on.




Had this lying around so I thought I would put it on.

Looks great.

Sidebar FYI: Those four bars are called lateral links. A (mosy common usage) torsion bar is a different part in a different suspension design, most often seen on GM & Ford light truck IFS systems.

Also, (but not commonly used) a sway bar can also be called an anti-roll or torsion bar. Technically speaking, any "bar" that provides rotational force from being "loaded" is a torsion bar.

Class dismissed.

I didn't go last Sunday due to a late night on the car but I'll keep an eye out for you next Sunday.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

I've run multiple ones (SSQV and many other brands atmospheric venting) with MAF, the effects are minimal with proper tuning and vacuum reference selection.

I guess to each it's own, running rich and stumbling between gear changes isn't healthy for performance.

Yeah, we are a lot alike when it comes to that.


Dropped the motor in! The rest of this week I will spend rerouting a lot of crap to get the turbo to fit.

Made a mount for my boost controller.




Made an ignition coil mount adapter.



I also spent most of the night re-routing the wiring and hoses.
