JDM TGV (deleted) and Gates timing belt came in today. I'll add pics to the posts where I have them listed later. I'm officially done with all the necessary parts to do the block swap.

My car is running awesomely. The note from the exhaust is pure music to my ears. Nice deep sound. The mechanic must have done something to get it to sound so good. Maybe tightened up the bolts.

I'm going to get my first oil change tomorrow at 50+ miles on the new block. I think I'm going to bring the people at the service center some doughnuts to thank them for the work.

Trust me, we love when people do that! Except Walmart donuts. They are gross. A lady brought in Reds donuts today (upscale donut shops here in town)... They were all gone within 10 mins.

Jdub, damn so I'm not being original? I know it isn't much but I'm sure the thought would be appreciated. Probably not something that happens to often. Owning a Subaru means knowing good mechanics that like to work on your car

Axleon2, thanks for the compliment.

Yay, AFR gauge is back up and running. Brought the dealership 24 donuts from Dunkin Donuts. $10 for 24 was a pretty good deal. Waiting for the oil change now and then off we go!

Next oil change will be in 300 miles. I'm doing a little bit of a hybrid break in of bursts of throttle and calm driving. I'm also letting the car go into vacuum more, something I did not know how to do when I first bought the car. Hopefully this helps. If not, oh well, there is another block waiting!

Even though it's not original it is appreciated and makes us more likely to go out of our way for the customer than the guy that complains even though his car runs great and the problem was fixed. Unfortunately in the mechanic side of the business people always think we are trying to rip them off.

Current block is on subaru synthetic. New block will most likely be rotella T6. Seems to be the choice of many on here and else where.

Hmmmm, it does look pretty good. I was testing it out imagining if the gauges were there in my car and it seems like it might be a little difficult to look up there if I was going to do a pull or something. But maybe for oil temp and pressure it will be good. I would want to keep AFR and boost at eye level or somewhere near the dash. I like. So I take it you run wires through the ceiling and down the pillar to keep it hidden?

I prefer the clock replacement mount. It's easier to see

I don't think anyone has a clock mount pod yet for the 08+ STI's. I would prefer that but I don't want to just mount the gauges directly on there. I want to try to keep it pretty modest looking and not draw attention.

Ah I didn't know that. My friend has the clock mount pod on his 06 and it looks great. He switched to that from the A pillar set up. I liked it a lot more and it drew less attention.

Looks like ATI is coming out with one soon!

That's what I understood from the little bit of directions that came with it. That's where I'm planning on doing the oil temp and pressure too. Got EGT & boost in the SMY one on my rex though.

I might just always use my AP for the boost gauge. I'm so used to it now plus it saves me the money from buying a gauge. I also like how the AP keeps the last highest reading so you don't have to sit there and stare at it.

I've been doing the same thing, but it's mainly cause I think my gauge is on crack. Reads about 10 more pounds of vacuum at idle than the AP. The peak setting is also an advantage, maybe I'll just go with one of those that has multiple readings like these PLXs. They're kinda ugly but the ides good.
