I ended up getting some brand spanking new EDM LHD Projectors.

Here is what everything ended up looking like installed in the engine and the projectors


Also during this summer I ended up doing the following:
- JDM RA Spec-C 6-speed swap (non-DCCD)
- 180 rear diff
- Sti rear axles/hubs/knuckles
- 05 WRX TR center console swap
- New door cards
- 06 STi rear diffuser
- Painted the engine bay gloss color to match flat exterior color
- Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator
- Subframe locking kit
- Moved gauges to Autometer steering bezel

Here is a shot of the interior with the center console swap and new door cards:


I was running the RS hood but under hood temps were getting crazy so I ended up going back to a WRX hood with some heat shielding and the KS-Tech hood scoop delete:


Notice the custom upholstered baby seat for my daughter to match the interior



I also started on some stereo upgrades but didn't get them finished before the car went away for the winter. There will be some floating AMPS in the spare tire well with a false floor:
- Kenwood Excellon 6.5" front component speakers
- Kaption rear components
- Added another Kenwood 4 channel amp
- replaced the 10's with 12's
- 1 farad cap

Here is a quick pick on where I left off:


Working through the winter and into the summer the plans are the following:
- Finish up stereo
- Relocate battery to trunk
- Fuse box in fender
- AC removal
- ABS removal
- Install my Magnus intake manifold
- Weld on the bung to better fit my APS BOV
- Move power steering reservoir to allow for some re-routed intercooler piping
- Passenger side intercooler piping won't go through fender any more
- Polished steel turbo inlet
- Inline fuel filter
- Clean-up/strip firewall of wires/hoses etc
- Relocate alternator to AC location
- Move coolant reservoir to Alternator location
- New Forge coolant reservoir
- Polish, Polish, Polish

Car looks great. I like the color scheme. +1 for originality! I just noticed the exterior and engine bay accents that match the interior.

I think the engine bay color scheme will be:
- polished, blue, black & carbon fiber

The magnus manifold should be the center piece

I went out to get some brass fittings for the manifold so I decided to spit shine it and take some snaps



You can see here that it is tapped for nitrous or meth if I decide to run it


I also tried my hand at polishing the power steering lines... they came out not too bad:


I cleaned up the throttle cable bracket as well. The throttle cable bracket, the alternator and the throttle body will be black when I am done with them.

The shiftboot is temporary.. I couldn't get my hands on an 05 STI shift boot yet. Wheels are staying the same.. I love them

Thanks.. the strut bar is likely getting removed until track days.. it just clutters the engine bay and takes away from the bits I want the eye to focus on.

Couple more additions today... I just ordered a nice little billet inline fuel filter:


A couple of black anodized -6 an fittings to match the rest of my fuel system:


And a few feet of -6an braided hose to finish off the install. I'll be taking out the OEM fuel filter and tucking this one away a little more out of sight.

Did some more work this morning.. Damn that was cold in the garage!! Here is the before picture:


Then I took the fender off and pulled all the wires out... You can also see a little ABS plastic box that I am thinking about using to hide some connections. I'm not sure if I will need it or not. I will likely create a plastic cover cut to shape for the battery tray to clean it up.


I then pulled the catch can out of there... the current plans are for the catch can and the coolant reservoir to go where the AC compressor currently sits.


And where-O-where did the wires and fuse box go?


They are dangling there for now. I had to go back inside and get warmed up. I was checking out the wiring harness in the fender and there is a ton of slack that is all bunched up near the drivers side door. I'll be cutting those zip ties and pulling that wiring harness out to its length so that I will have some slack for re-positioning the fuse box.

I think for now I will likely leave the two main harness plugs for the engine where they are until I pull the AC and do the Intake manifold swap. That way I will have more access to the wiring harness once the manifold is pulled.

No problem, man! Glad I could help.

Are you doing a full fuel system like I did? Or just piecing it together in the engine bay with stock lines?

The fuse box relocation looks good! I had my whole harness re-wrapped and extended. My fuse box is actually in the front wheel well near where the start of the radiator support is.

After all that work to those headlights you end up going with OEM EDM lights...kinda ironic.

Car is looking great btw.

I have the Agency Power Fuel Rails and distribution block. They are all braided and AN fittings except where it connects to the fuel filter and the return line. So I have the inline filter and new AN fittings to clean that up.

Question for you?? How did you run the wires for the passenger side coils. Looks like you still ran the injector wires under the manifold, but I don't see any wires running down to the coils. Did you run them under the rad and then back up the passenger side?

I had these made up for a little cover that will cover up the mounting brackets for the washer bottle. I made two just in case I mess one up
