The Parts are starting to pour in..

GM IAT Sensor



ProSport JDM Gauges. These Things look Fresh! They Are Digital with a stepper motor movement, so its both of best worlds.

Boost



Oil Pressure and Oil Plate Adapter



WB AFR Kit with 4.9 Bosh Sensor


I don't know hoiw or where I am going tlk mount them yet. Any suggestions? I was thinking maybe Boost on the Column and WB & Oil Press either on the A pillar or Center Dash Compartment? BLOX makes a Dual gauge pod built into the Plastic trim piece that goes around the main Gauge Cluster.

Heres a Vid of the Gauges

I Drilled out the spot welds, Used a cut off disk to cut it out, and just tacked welded it back in exactly how it was on the clip. Its pretty straight forward. I'll take some pics of it when I go back to the shop Tmrw or Friday.

Good luck bro!

You cant miss it bro. Its the bracket underneath the cowel in the middle where the wiper is bolted down. I haven't got pics yet but you should be able to figure it out just by looking at it.
When I first got my clip, this is no joke, I literally sat there and stared at it for hours on end, comparing every single different between the jdm & USDM parts.

Few things done last weekend...





The "Infamous" Ver5/6 STi Big Port Heads!!!


I'm now at the Exhaust/intake Fabrication stage. Since it'll be tuned for Speed Density, I won't be needing an Intake, but Fabrication has started for the Rotated Up/Downpipe, Dump Tube, IC Piping, and until Summer I will be rockin' the stock Exh Mani. I wanted it to be perfect, and if I wait till summer my guy will have designed me exactly what I want w/o having to rush it.
After that, it all about tuning it. Can't wait to get it on the Dyno!!! Actually, I can't wait just to hear it fire up for the first time!!!

You talk like my build is crap or something..Lmao Ive spent thousands of dollars, not to mention countless hours of hard labor building this car, so I think it was well worth it.

Picked up my Meth Kit plus some VP M1 methanol


Installed the Meth Pump and tank, as well as relocated the battery to the trunk. I still have to make a temp battery tie down until I can either Fab or buy a battery box.

Be careful with that AEM Meth controller from that kit, it's trash. I have the same kit. I've seen a bunch of failed ones. The rest of the kit is solid though.

Check his build out.

All of our builds are crap by comparison


Anyway, I think he's more bummed at having to cut one up to do what you are doing. The base car was pretty nice.

Just the controller or what? How's the pump? I was guna get a Devils own, but a friend of a friend had bought the AEM kit and then sold his car so I bought it cheap. Ive seen newer AEM controllers for like $150 so maybe I should just swap it out now before I get onto the dyno?! I sent you a DM

His 05 STi? Or the legacy? Ther both nice. I think people that live overseas forget that they are privileged to have access to the cars that we in the States are forced to destroy and rebuild just to have a slice of Japanese pie!
Does it suck that i had to ruin a perfectly nice type-r? Of course, but I don't regret chopping my car up one bit. I'm doing everything I can to honor it by rebuilding it even better than it was originally. Most ppl own their cars for 5-10 years before they do what I'm close to accomplishing in one!
So regardless of what anyone else has or thinks, IMO my car kicks ass! Crap is the last thing id use to describe it
Over here, in the States, my car is unique/rare! Over there...just another car!

I don't have the interior in yet. I still have to install the door cards, pillar plastics, headliner, carpet and my rear seat delete. I also still need to wire in the tail lights. I might cover the trunk with some Butyl Rubber, but other than that my baby is ready to rip! What do you guys think?

My heater isn't blowing hot air. My Vent selection knob works, as well as the Fan Speed knob. The Temp Knob is the one that isn't working.(Atleast that's the theory) Both of the heater lines are hot, my temp gauge stays steady in the middle. Ive looked under the dash to see if the vent flap was shut, but I couldn't find it. There is one arm next to the vent selection arm that isn't moving. Maybe that's it? Also there is another arm under the glovebox that doesn't seem to be plugged in, but there isn't a male connection anywhere near it so Idk if there even is one.

If anyone has a diagram of the HVAC system, can you please contact me. I'm going to replace the T-Stat just to do it, but Im hoping its something as simple as the flap not opening cuz I just finished my swap, and really don't feel like taking the dash back off...again
