I absolutely love my Abarth. Granted, I have only had it a few days but the personality that the 500 has is just over the top. Great fun to drive.

He's getting back into his old 94 GF wagon. Plus, no automatics for us.

The sound is definitely not expected from these little cars!

Is that a Detroit? I run a series 40 at work sometimes and its pretty insane and even more so that the seat is a milk crate and the shift knob is about 6" from the headliner.

Subaru red footwell illumination kit delivered last night, will be trying to get it installed before tonight's Seattle meet. Supposedly only takes ~20 minutes but I seem to have a way with making projects take 1000x longer than they need to

I'll post before/afters when done.

Well, as expected this took like an hour and a half. Snaking wires is definitely not my greatest skill .

Overall I'm not sure if I really like how they turned out. The mounting points still allow the LEDs to be visibly seen, which is a little weird. The pics don't really show that much light as they get eaten up by the black floor mats, but the light is more prevalent when someone's feet or something is down there. I do like that the brightness adjusts as you change the brightness of your whole console/dash.

Looks clean! If you could get the deck to be colored black it would look killer!

Impreza WRX STi what i did to day

Replaced the IWG actuator on my B/W 8374 I was wondering why i wasn't making much power and after data logging I found i was only building 6# of Boost. Apparently the medium boost actuator and my tune don't get along, so as a band-aid I swapped in the high boost actuator leaving it fairly loose so it doesn't damage the stock engine



I hope it will bring me up to ~15# so I can still play a bit while trying to raise cash to give to Dominic for my new engine

While i was down there i also checked the header/up-pipe bolts for the first time since i put the rotated kit in.

I was cleaning brake dust off of some wheels I picked up. I put two of the ones I cleaned back in my house and went back to my porch to continue. Roughly a minute later I heard a series of crashes and bangs that lasted about 5 seconds. One of the wheels shifted just enough weight to roll its way down my stairs (there's a 90 degree turn halfway down) and crash through the door to my furnace before landing face down on the tile. Damage? Door's broken, stairs have some dings, wall has a couple of small marks... no noticeable damage to the wheel.

They now have wedges to stop them from rolling.

Got some snow tires mounted up for the first time since finally switching to a set of full summer tires. I'll probably mount them up in a few days.
