Attempted to install fender braces on the wagon. I'll try a 14mm straight ratchet next time otherwise the fender is coming off. That top right bolt makes me

Filled the WRX on E85 for the first time and got it dialed in 4 flashes, now gotta get a new intake (on way from Spider pig) and new injectors... 19psi at redline 11:5.1 = 100% duty, ouch, but power sliding a 10 YO wagon when boost hits rocks.

Turbo inlet, wasn't as bad as I expected. Took 2 hours and wasn't to terrible. Everything I heard made it sound like a giant pain.

Better response and the extra noise is a big plus, I love hearing my turbo

Adjusted hella horns and mounting, plugged a few plastic areas with new replacement rivets, remounted front bumper, cleaned air filter and cleaned engine bay out a little...
On the 08fxt. Nothing special, things were just loose from previous owner. I'm guessing small front end collision.

Gonna order parts this afternoon for the 08 and maybe order some for the 2010 fxt.

Spent yesterday afternoon going through the front brakes cleaning, re-applying some caliper grease, and just checking the pad level since they seem to have lasted forever! (Pagid pads.) Also finally had time to just simply wash the car. Then of course, it barely sprinkled today, so I wiped it back down this evening. Took a few pics. (And yes, I'm back on stock springs and struts until I decide what's next after having just sold my KW V3s.) Not looking too bad for an '04 STi I've had since new and now with 91,500 miles! Replaced the radiator with a Koyo a couple weeks ago. A couple projects coming up though...timing belt service with valve cover gaskets and then the clutch. Still on the original clutch. It slipped for the first time the other day in 6th gear at full throttle on the highway. Not really looking forward to either of those projects!
