Yeah I could have put mine back on probably at least a month ago but I needed new tires for the BBS wheels. I bought RE01's back in late 2008 from a Tire Rack closeout and have been running them since then... But they were starting to wear. I picked up a set of Nitto Invo's (235/45/17) from a buddy with barely any miles for a deal. Had them put on Thursday and put them BBS wheels on Friday

I checked out your pictures on an actual PC and very nice. What camera? I have a D3000 Nikon but I don't use it that often

^^I have a Nikon D40 with a D90 kit lens. Add a little magic from a bit of editing software and the finished product comes out alright!

How do you like your exhaust setup? Any drone noise in the cabin?

With any wagon, you'll get some drone with any aftermarket exhaust. It's not bad though, probably one of the quieter ones out there.

What wheels do you have on the last page for winter mode? I can't tell if they are 08-10 WRX wheels or if they are Spec B wheels?

Nice looking wagon.

Got a couple hours of wrenching yesterday on my latest project. Got the rear axles removed and disconnected the drive shaft. Got the two bolts on the back of the diff broken loose, but had some serious trouble with the four bolts on the input side of the diff. Decided to call it a night before I started stripping the bolts. I'll hit it with the impact gun as soon as I get my compressor back from the shop.



Soooooo nice having a garage to myself again!

Slowly going about my project as I have time.....

Got the air compressor running and was able to use air tools on my car for the first time. Holy hell, I'm never going back to manual labor! Was able to zip out the 4 bolts holding the R160 in about 30 seconds. Then proceeded to drop the diff on my face as I wrestled it out. Also swapped the out the auto driveshaft for the STi one.

Air tools FTW!


Looks to be a few parts missing.....


My garage is starting to look like a Subaru graveyard....


Ordered a bunch of parts from Subaru Genuine Parts today, and I'll be getting my custom axles built tonight. Hoping to get the Stealthwagon back on the road in less than a week!

Yeah I got sick of the open diff from a Legacy L I was running with my 6spd, so I figured it was time to go all out. Axles got built yesterday, should have everything put back together this weekend!

Buttoned her all back up on Saturday and got her back on the road. Feels so much better to have an LSD rear end again! I plan on giving her a good detail in the next few weeks and taking her out for a nice photoshoot somewhere.

Huge thanks to local member Suberdave for helping me with the hybrid axle build. If you're unfamiliar with his races, they basically allow you to use the inner cup from an STi axle, and the shaft/outer cup from your WRX axles allowing you to run an R180 with WRX hubs. Check the thread here:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2048240

And since this is a picture thread.....

100% more R180!


Summer mode in order:

Feel like I saw you the other day, Sunday around 5:30pm?, I was in Ben's car with him. You were going south on Bothell-Everett Hwy, and we were turning left onto the same road from 132nd. Could be wrong... You have the silver BBS's on your car right now?

Wasn't me, the Stealthwagon was parked all weekend. I have seen another silver wagon around the area with BBS, my doppelgänger if you will. I saw Ben a few weeks ago on 35th I think, but I was driving my Civic.
