watson, people just chuck them. pick up WRX brakes for almost nothing and be much happier.

dave, R can watch.

well. long story short, the quaife, close ratio trans, solid urethane mounts, rebuilt factory axles, axxis ultimates and the straight TEs with hankook v12 evos make it pretty crazy and damn is it sharp. does everything you want IMMEDIATELY!
too bad i wasnt' done 18 hrs ago
why wasn't i done? well, the ohlins turned out to be broken/blown, which i found out friday night ~ 10pm, after designing new tophats for them and using the mockups to cycle them, so i switched gears into making the wagon good to go for the trackday, as on thrusday i picked up a giant screw right near the outer sidewall tread in the STi. getting thw wagon track ready meant finishing the braking system and getting decent pads and changing trans and engine oils. no problem, right? well, Tom helped IMMENSELY with getting me the front rotors, tried buying pads but nobody has anything performance for 04wrx around. bought a set of $230 EBC reds that dont' even goddamned fit, and finally dug up some almost shredded axxis ultimates from when i got the brakes from shek. the rears disintegrated when i was cleaning up the edges, so i just did the fronts, then dropped on my 1 1/165" SVX master cylinder, with the two bottom holes drilled and tapped for 1/8" NPT(try finding one of those local on a saturday!!) got it all together and bench bled and then bled all the brakes. whats this? no, not happening. ok. pedal still going to the floor? wtf? ran super blue, gravity bled the whole thing. it's midnight now and i've been working on this car and driving around trying to find the crap i need to actually get things done for the past 13 hours. actual work on the car isn't too hard or long. only a few hours. hardest bit was reflaring the lines. after the bleeding, flushing and gravity bleeding, pedal still goes to the floor. something is seriously wrong with this master cylinder or soemthing i cant' see, so i go over to the civic, and start working on it to get it ready for leaving at 6am to head out to nelson ledges.

at this point i'm covered in brake fluid and filthy as the damned wagon is still really low, have a bunch of work to do to get the civic trackworthy. put the shifter in, fill it up the trans, drop in axles, put the not all together horrible tockico illuminas and progress springs back together, change the engine oil, and then disaster. i cant' get any of the bolts in it. ~2:30am i throw in the towel. spent he next 45 minutes cleaning up and another 45 mins tryign to get clean in the shower. this suck. wake up ~ 10am, pull the trans and EVERY threaded hole on the friggin trans was crossthreaded and/or full of some crap paste that turns brand new bolts into round edged piles of ****. so my new bolts from the dealership are ****ed, and couldn't get an m12x1.25 tap ANYWHERE today, so took my best old bolt and turned it into a thread chaser, but pulling the trans i just installed and chasing every threaded hole took ~6 hrs. most of that was chasing threads. i did all this by hand as my air ratchet valve disintegrated after doing 2 bolts, what else is going to go wrong? put the trans back in, and get everything else buttoned up, i've done this dozens of times before. normally swapping a transmissino takes ~2 hrs. anyway it's 10pm now, go out for a drive. civic is AMAZING, still need to figure out what's wrong with the wagon's MC. oh and my projector took a **** cause my stepdad hit it with a boken. after an hour of digging in it, found out he knocked some grounds loose along with busted the case. i'm skipping a lot to make it quick, but i'm pretty convinced i have crap luck, trying to change it, any ideas? at least today a paint can didn't explode in my face, right? ahh. world is tellin me cars can go fukk themselves i think.

Look at it the other way - you are no less lucky, you are just accomplishing more so naturally more bad things are also happening.

I have all the brakes off of my wrx since I switched to brembos. I even have an almost brand new set of pads but they are far from performance pads. They were just to get me through until my brembos arrived.

I got my clutch & flywheel put in by Aamco past the Dairy Queen/McD's for like $400 labor.

No noticeable issues.

haha! no it's mainly Rochelles' Mother and stepdad are here and i had prepayed for the trackday on sunday, and got excited. first trackday in 2 years, barring snowx. i'm gonna hit one a month minimum this coming summer. and i can say now that i've driven the pants off it, that alloy wheel repair right over here at the end of Gross st in bloomfield is AWESOME! straightened the crap out of my TEs(though they complained they were like springs! and the hardest to straighten wheels they ever came across) all of them are now round!! and hankook v12 evos are friggin wild! no inside wheelspin the quaife either, and the 10% closer ratios REALLY help. love it! so Dan, drive the civic now!

also the big lump where the piece of **** craftsman 17mm wrench broke and flew into my forehead is gone.

watson, sorry i junked mine. got 30 bucks form all the junk. call all foreign, wrx calipers are same cost through them. like 30 bucks each.

Jason, do not ever sell the STI. And you should've done the trackday with replacement wheels/tires for your STI. Do the wheels/tires off the wagon fit your STI?

Dan, nice!

Guys I need your help, my clutch is toast on my DailyDriver "02 Bugeye WRX" and I dont have the full potential to change out my Clutch and Flywheel. My friend that normally helps me smashed his hand last week and cant help me with the swap.


So here it is if anyone is interested:
Free Beer "your choice" and Pizza for help with Clutch/Flywheel Swap. + I have some subaru shirts to give out. I also have a Liftand Tranny Jack that we will be able to use.
Message me if you would be interested in a group swap maybe tomorrow evening?

Tom,
Just saw your post about going rotated. What do you have in mind ? I will have a few extra bucks after the holler days/ 1st of the year. I am on te fence between one of Dale's set ups or an sti suspension/drive train swap. Car is plenty fast now with more potential left in it so I am leaning towards the chassis stuff but I am fickle.. I would like to know what you are considering.

I don't know how true this is, but an Subaru engine builder told me the weird Cosworth dome is most anti-detonant of the o.t.s. options for EJ's.

watson - i have Ryan's old front brake setup. Stock wrx calipers painted red, higher end slotted rotor and some upgraded pad. PM me if interested and i'll get the rotor/pad specs.

Jason - do you have 5x114 hubs on the sti? if so, you can borrow my wheels if you do the track day.

I've had no problems with the obx diff, I talked with other autox's who have then before i bought it. I was able to re-use the subaru bearings, but it was dumb luck that i got them off the factory diff and on the obx.

and it's an esp wrx , lol. No diff upgrade allowed in stx
