But using Wagon struts on sedan front. Adds camber I believe ....I would love to talk about a rear diffuser but I live in IL.....

Anyone know if you can pick up a donut gasket for the stock STI exhaust at a place like Advance or NAPA?

I spent a good bit of time swapping all my exhaust manifold gaskets for new Grimmspeed ones because I thought that's where my exhaust leak was coming from but it turns out in the process of changing my oil pickup and raising the motor it somehow messed up the OEM DP to Catback donut gasket and it's leaking real bad there. I can put my hand above it and just feel the air leaking out. Now I get to spend more money to fix my leak. At least I know what it is now.

I'm not sure if the sell them at NAPA, but if they are the same size as the one on an '02 WRX, I have one that was only used for about 5,000 miles if you want it.

Considering there was no leak in the exhaust and I didn't touch a single bolt I wasn't expecting to get a leak from a part I haven't touched. Considering how many gaskets there are on the exhaust manifold I felt it was pretty likely one of them was leaking after reusing the old factory ones. Live and learn I guess.

A whole week of work before the Pence meet...

On Monday, after a **** ton of research, installed a Jegs battery trunk relocation kit, added a distribution block in the hood and circuit breaker in the trunk. The next few days will consist of shaving down the driver's side of the engine bay, and finally relocating the fuse box.

Re-did the crank seal on the oil pump since I probably effed it up when I did the timing belt service. I never want to do this again, I'd rather drive the car into a river.
