Very nice. Another, more factory solution is to get the front door switch plates from a 2007 STi Limited. They have the heater controls in the door switch area. PN: 94266FE260OE for the passenger side and it costs $6.50. On the driver's side you simple place it in the dash. I know of nothing else that goes in that spot...

Cut all the tabs on the back, drill out the plastic clips, sand the back all down flat. Cut the top down, about a half inch. Sand your cuts, then mount using nuts and bolts, through the factory holes in the bumper. In the wheel well pop out the factory rivets and put them through the splitter along with the bumper and your done.

Peek-a-boo



I've found it takes about 4 full turns to go from wastegate pressure (just over 20psi) to my desired peak of ~27psi. It is nice to be able to jump between those two whenever I want (although I never have turned it down in the past, so I don't know if I really will do that now...). I just figured it would be nice for the track in case I want to tone things down a bit on the fly.

Here's another lower shot:



I ran the vacuum lines across the engine bay and through the large grommet in the fender (along with all the other wiring I have done). Plenty of room in there. The MBC was mounted into a hole that was already existing under the dash. I don't know why it was there, but it was a perfect fit for the bolt.

I was a bit worried that the extra vacuum lines would cause problems, but I haven't noticed any issues so far. Spool and boost control seem to work just fine, but I would still like to pull a log to confirm. The only oddity is that you can hear the MBC venting air once the ball/spring opens up (as it should). It's just a slight hiss and by that time the EWG is open so it doesn't matter anyways!

so i cut some self adhesive closed cell foam padding and made a key guard. problem solved.



this is version 1 for now, I'll certainly be coming back to retrace and cut out a more OE looking shape to fit the curves etc better
Thanks for the idea!! I had the same problem and adapted your solution by using sticky black felt.

Borrowed that idea as well... ended up using a pool cue bumper instead of a furniture glider. It's a little thinner and it stops my pedal at the perfect distance past the friction point. No more guess work! Thanks !
