I did all those upgrades at the same time. A very nice (loud, rumbly, stable) upgrade. Just add the steering rack bushings and rear diff bushings/inserts, and it will feel really nice.

With the new V3 I got for free, went and spent half that money on these:

Cobb SF Intake


Subaru SF Airbox


All because of today's deal



Yesterday was Free Exhausts for Fifth orders...wonder what else is on the way.

Just get one of those plastic straight through jobbers to connect the two lines and run it for a couple days to see what you think, easy enough to reconnect.

You could "sell" them... oh, I dunno, to me? What is the USD to SubieBuck conversion rate?

Koso Oil temp gauge. Haven't done the sensor install yet, going with a sandwich adapter and it's not time to change the oil.

Why did you go with the sandwich adapter instead of tapping into the rear galley plug underneath the intercooler?

I haven't done the sandwich yet; I still could go that route. I have an adapter left over from my old car and never had any issues with it. Galley plug looks a little more of a PITA. Is the only reason why people don't like sandwich adapters because they *could* leak? Why galley over sandwich?

I had a sandwich on my wrx and it did leak so that's why I'd avoid it myself. There is also potentially more heat down there to stress the sensor, up above the engine it is a little more open.

Gave both mine and my husband's Subies much needed baths and cleaned the inside up. Hopefully soon I'll start getting the stuff to go wide body and lift my husbands Forster a couple inches.

Come to think of it... I did have sensors go out twice down there on my old car. I think I will order a plug adapter. Thanks for the feedback.

No problem, I had a sensor go out while down there too, but it was a prospect that I bought used.

I also have a sandwich on my car. I'm pulling the piece of **** during my next oil change. The damn thing leaks like a mother. 0/10 definitely would not recommend.

Wow that's the "twinkie" of my thinking. I wanted to go wide body and jack my wife's forester up, then she divorced me. I need to find these PNW women who understand what it is to wrench...

NWIC- do we have a singles thread? Dare we have enough women to make one?



Haha

Haha. My gf and I have almost split a few times thanks to me always wrenching. Comes with the territory.

Lol... this thread is turning out to be pretty sad. My wife complains about my wrenching too.
