Replaced the valve cover gasket on my beater civic and kept trying to figure out my coolant puking/overheating issues. Found out I had two lines crossed (the one plumbed to the turbo and the one coming off the nipple of the expansion tank by the turbo, have a post in the 2.0 powertrain forum), took it on a test drive, no overheating but the coolant was frothy and close to overflowing when I was parking again. Mechanically inclined subaru enthusiast friend says it could still be some trapped air, especially since I had the lines crossed until today, but back at it tomorrow. Couldn't do a block test with the lines crossed because coolant kept spurting from the nipple on the expansion tank, getting sucked into the block tester, so hopefully I can at least get the test run successfully tomorrow.

Hopefully my h6 brackets came in at work so that I can finally install the h6 brakes later this week. I was surprised how cheap everything was under my discount Also had my valve cover gaskets shipped out

I'd ditch the intake . And the inlet hose is not compatible with an OTS map I hope you know.

Even if its post MAF? I thought its okay to install as long as its past the MAF sensor. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I even called cobb plano to make sure before i posted that and yes its not approved to use on an OTS map. the intake is if you use the specific intake map but i wouldnt use it since 08+ subies have had bad luck with intakes. you can always get a protune

Hmmmm, okay. Thank you for the information. I'll probably just hold off on installing the inlet then until I can get a protune from Cobb one of these days.

Finally did the H6 upgrade in the rear with some Wagner pads and switched out the crappy duralast pads from the po with PFC pads in the front, flushed out the DOT 3 with DOT4 and bedded the pads in.

No more braking slightly hard once then having completely useless spongy brakes

Badge overlay;

Off ebay for 7 dollars shipped; same quality as the ones that are selling for 18 on that jdm vinyl site; I had one given to me but it didn't fit so I stuck it on a water bottle.. Then found these ones on ebay and when they came in I compared and they are exactly the same

When installing you may think they aren't a perfect match but you need to heat with hair dryer or heat gun and press to stretch around the ends

I say it's a 98% match; good enough for me
