Saturday, worked on the wagon, the car was still running sluggish after the TPS replacement,a dnt computer reset. Travelled to a junkyard to find some more parts since it costs to much to buy anything new for that car.
Found a perfect bodied red impreza coupe, although stripped the bosy was in great cond. not sure how it ended up in a salvage yard, it wasnt at all wrecked. I was told the engine was bad which it wasnt, the idler pulleys for the timing belt was bad, so the owners salvaged it....????
I salvaged alot of parts for that car, need the headlights next so my grille will fit right (broken bracket on the right side. The clip will not stay in place on the top of the grille.
bought the MAF sensor, a coil, and the grill for 60 bux. The car runs great now! Although it really doesnt run well with the A/C on. Not much power to run it, I'm thinking the compressor is another item I will need soon.
Found an SVX 3.3 next to the 1.8 motor I got the tps and coil from. I asked him about purchasing it but the motor was just a core (no good) I found the owner to that motor close to where the red impreza body was.
Didnt see much damage from my vantage point. But not interested in the car just the motor. Soon....very soon....

Finished installing the new tie rod end & ball joint on the driver side, then re-did some wiring for my wideband gauge. Waiting on the new cv boot to arrive (Thursday), so that I can put the passenger side of my car back together.

I painted my Borg Warner S256. I did it "Cast Aluminum". I used VHT High Temp primer and paint. I'm happy with it. I also painted a few other things for the hell of it. The brackets and fitting are wrinkle black and the bolts are obviously blue. I just got the DEI Titanium "Lava" T4 blanket and was checking fitment.
