This weekend I actually did a quite a bit of work. First I recently got the Work lug nuts to go with my wheels. I think they look pretty good. They match the valve stems, which is cool.
Iíve had the Killer B oil pick up for a few months now, and was waiting to install it at my next oil change. My car only has just under 40,000 miles on it, so I wasnít worried yet, (thereís a local guy with about 70,000 miles on his 06 STI that had his split!) but I thought itíd be a good idea to get it on as soon as I could. It wasnít hard to install, but it was time consuming. First I drained the oil.
Then removed the header and lifted the engine a few inches to get to the rear bolts on the oil pan. Not the recommended way to do this, but it worked.
Then installed the pick up, and put everything back together. Fortunately, I donít have any oil leaks. *Crosses fingers*
I put in the Shell Rotella 5W40, since Iíve been hearing a lot of good things on the forums and seeing oil analysis on Bobistheoilguy.com. I could only find them in gallon jugs at Auto Zone, for about $27, pretty spendy! At least it should last at least 6,000 miles.
Sunday we retuned the car. We havenít tuned it since it had just the PERRIN intake, downpipe and catback. It made some pretty good power, about 330WHP and 375FT LBS!!!! It feels really good now.
Here's a pic of me trying to figure out how to use windows.
This dyno compares my car from back in January with the PERRIN intake to where it's at now after the newest tune.
Iím not sure what I want to do next, any ideas?
I'm thinking turbo inlet hose lip, wingless trunk and maybe seats?
