no problem there, why were you checking it? also remove the filters if they exist in your 05, these were deleted mid 2005 build and beyond, info here:

Just checkin it to be sure. Not really having any problems, but I'm planning on getting tuned soon and possibly getting a 20g. So I just wanted to make sure that I was starting with a good motor, ya know. I ended up cracking one of plugs today and didn't know it. When I drove my car is was misfiring really bad. Ordered new plugs won't be here til tomorrow. Should I drive with the cracked one or swap in one of my old ones. The new ones are one step colder and the old ones are stock STI NGKs. Anyone? Thanks.

Good to hear that your motor is good.

Please excuse this question if it's the stupidest thing you've ever heard. The spark plugs in the car are like 2 months old. Can I just replace the one that's messed up? Thanks, guys

eeek... I will definitely in rough shape. I have that whole day off work to recover though so it shouldn't be too bad.

Same time same place?!

I think it might be a good idea to call ahead and get a table setup. The lounge area was ok, just a little loud for conversations at the distances we were sitting from each other.
