So what ever you set in there also reflects the gauge cluster reading?

Base map from my Plug in board for 2007 sti had it at 240
Doesn't affect gauge cluster.

Weird... Most Subaru base maps have it at 260.

255 worked for me! My tires are 295/30/18 which is same diameter as stock 225/45/17. If your tires are taller or shorter then it would make a difference.

Unfortunately not yet. Lol it's been so long since I said I was going to do it.

How is your benson block? What head gaskets did you end up using? Any sealing issues?

How do you like being an accountant? I am an accounting major graduating this may. I've done a couple internships, but mainly just bookkeeping and not in a firm type environment. I know this is off-topic so feel free to PM me if you don't want your thread cluttered.

It's alright. Kind of boring at some times but the pay is really good. 5/6 members in my family are accountants so what can I say haha. Dad runs his own private accounting company and he's getting quite old now so will probably have to take over soon. I got the easy way in terms of finding a sponsor, getting advice, etc.

It's amazingly competitive in BC to become a CA so if you don't have grades or work hard enough you won't be able to get a job in the field as a CA.

Dammit, only if I had used cosworth head gaskets from the beginning. Never wanted to use cometic but I was told they weren't going to be an issue.

Oh well at least I won't have to oring the block because you're running a lot more boost than i plan to.

Been a while since I turned any nuts and bolts on the car. Decided to put my arp extended wheel studs on today.





Rear was a piece of cake going through the abs sensor hole. Just needed a bit of grinding with the angle grinder and stone bit.

Front was a little more work. Had to crack the axle nuts loose, push the axle back in a bit, remove the 4 bolts holding the hub in, pull it out a bit, then put the studs in.

Rear rotors finally hit minimum thickness

Not Subaru related but a truck I bought was delivered to my house today.

2001 F350 SD 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel



Has a 6.5" lift and 37" BFGoodrich 37" A/T's on it right now. 4" exhaust, etc.

Needs some work right now. Oil cooler o-rings, rear diff pinion seal, new glow plug relay and glow plugs, etc. Maybe new injector o-rings.

Transmission was completely rebuilt just a year ago. Needs some body work too but I got it really cheap

Small photo shoot we had yesterday. Just all the car friends I grew up with. Some of them are selling their rides so we decided to get everyone together one last time.
