That looks like an awesome road. Just needs some curves and dips!

I got my alignment done the other day. I recommend all you guys even on the stock suspension to go and get that done. Surprisingly my factory specs were off by a pretty large margin.

I've fallen back in love with my car again

I had them max out front camber, zero toe, etc etc. But basically subaru uses tolerances instead of exact specs when aligning the cars to begin with. My camber especially were essentially on opposite sides of that spectrum when compared left to right

I got a lip the other day from bayson r and I finally got around to cleaning it and such so I took some pix. Next on the list, lowering!!!











is the fitment perfect? no, but it was only $110 and this was the first time I've ever installed a lip. what did I do? well, to be honest, I didn't want to use the supplied self-tappers so I went out and bought like 15 ss 1/4" bolts 30 flat washers and 15 nylon locking nuts. took the bumper off, lined up the lip as best as I could, mark where I needed to drill holes, drilled the holes, installed the lip with hardware... called it good.

as far as powdercoating, just make sure your powdercoater knows what he's doing and you'll be fine.

heyyyy, remember me?!



you can PC any wheel, as long as it's done right as explained above. mine were fine...and they were in the accident so i know they were strong.

for color i say teal, like bestthaticouldo intercooler pipes! or same color i had

Fixing the low RPM stumble on a GR.
Anyone with an GR WRX or STI and a tune should do this.
I contacted Eric at Torqued Performance (My car is currently TP Stage 1) and Eric strongly recommends this mod. And by strongly I mean this...

So I am posting this here so it sees a wider audience. I apologize if you have already seen this, it has been posted here after I searched, it just has not gotten much attention.

Original Thread is here:
http://www.iwsti.com/forums/2-5-lite...hard-line.html

But I decided to consolidate it all into a nice DIY.

After I did this mod, I noticed that my car ran smoother. For some people, its a night and day difference, others, maybe a bit less.

See End for Tune Modification recommended instructions

Time: 15-20 min
Tools Needed
-Flat head
-Phillips head
-Fuse Puller
-2 Large zipties, or cut one into two pieces
-Blow dryer

Parts Needed (cost me $3 for everything)
-a couple zipties
-2 5/16" Fuel INJECTOR Hose Clamps
-3ft 5/16" Fuel INJECTOR Hose (must be multi-fuel compatible and handle at least 200psi)




STEPS
1. Locate the fuse box under the hood and pull the Fuel Pump Fuse.





2. Crank the Car to use up fuel in the lines. (car may start and then eventually die, crank it a bit more to be safe)

3. Using the Philips, unscrew the clamp by the Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR). and pull the hose off.
note: BE PREPARED FOR FUEL TO SPEW OUT for a few seconds. keep face away.




4. Using the 2 zip ties, find the two tabs (180degrees apart) on the inside of yellow/green quick connector, and push the flat part of the zip ties in to raise the tabs.
5. Pull the hose + quick connector out (yellow/green slides out with it)

tabs shown here


Ziptie tie configuration shown here


5. Make sure there's no foreign debris in the new hose.
6. Using the blow dryer to heat up the hose, push the New 5/16" hose tube over the bump (PITA)
note: caution not to damage the hard line.
7. Slide and tighten one clamp over the hump, and one right before the hump as shown here:

8. Route and ziptie the hose however you want and use the OEM clamp to tighten the other end to the FPR side. (you can use a new clamp if you really want)

Image Link



9. Put the fuel pump fuse back in.
10. Apply the modified tune (preferable), or just reset the ECU. (won't reap the full benefits)
11. Turn Key, Let the car prime. And start the engine.
note: check for leaks while priming and after engine is on.


Drive cautiously and log at first to see how your car handles the change.


Tune Modification (thanks endrswrd and Heide264)
Adjust your Engine Load Compensation Cruise (MP) and Non-Cruise (MP) tables.
1. Change every value to 20% (multiply by 0.20)
2. Zero out all the values besides the “stumble areas” (keep them at their 20% value)
3. You can smooth transitions out more if you want.
note: Cobb AP users / ATR users- the tables you will mod are slightly different. They have two less rows at the top, and they start @ 1k rpms vs 650 for the romraider tables. But the mod can be done in a similar fashion
4. If your tuner put any "holes" in the ignition table to help eliminate knock during your protune, you can smooth them back out now after the fuel line mod.
Again, sorry if this is old news to you. Just trying to reach a wider audience. Some people have attributed this fuel line hammering as to why there is so much knock seen in cylinder 4. This may be one of the sources of the factory lean tune that creates detonation.

Im fixing mine after my vacation and sending logs to Eric.
