Oh okay, I must've read too fast then, I thought you said something about the paint bubbling on the roof or something. And dang, even though you only were looking for 250 horsepower, you might as well look for an Sti swap. I've seen ej257's going for as little as 7-9K, I'm not sure if it'd be more up in Quebec though. By the way, my dad's a huge Canadiens fan. My grandpa's family was originally from Ontario.

Damn, nice work! If you plan to keep the car for a couple of years, I'd definitely invest in some new carpet

I clay bared her today. I'll put the summer and give her a wax tomorrow. I was so impressed by how well the paint held up, but the front bumper is riddled with rock chips. Highway driving ftw.

I put my Summers and the new Rally Armor mudflaps.

The paint really held up great.







The yellow Spec R1 isn't mine, it's a friends. He picked it up 3 days ago.

Okay, I fixed the MudFlaps, It wasn't fun to do it under the rain, but a poncho did the trick. I had put them upside down :run:

Drove to work with the Summer tires. God the difference is always surprising. Although every bump is felt now...

^The trick is to buy rubberized paint, and spray the **** out of the undercarriage before winter. Then rust proof the car like there is no tomorrow (grease everywhere, yes even under the carpets). Then wax the car as much as you can.

Clean car ensues.

A small Photo shoot at the Laboratory. This is an eerie place. It's where the first pig was cloned in North America. Those Vessels are my dissembled Bioreactors waiting for assembly and calibration then test runs.

This is the loading area. The whole lab is on standby, waiting for me to assemble and run these vessels for my Provisional patent testing.

That place is very odd
I love that red and gold bbs combo. That red is much more subtle in my opinion to the red they offer for the new wrx's/sti's. Goodluck on the Sti swap dude! Im sure you will love it!

^I work there everyday, you should see the Animal operating rooms, it's a typical scene from resident evil or something. Always creeps me out.

^Thank you. The swap is complete but my the diff that came with the Version 6 Sti wasn't operational.

I'm going to need to buy another one. I was expecting setbacks, this has been the only one. Knock on wood.

Should I consider a better breaking system? How hard is it to fix 4pot brakes on?

With 94 gas and a bunch of pulls, I still got 330km on a tank on 35L. Not that bad.

The brembos are ridiculous, I'm getting a GoPro, I'll post some videos soon.
