Yep, check out this I/C. Redline at 8k, but it shows 10k for a reason.

I jumped on the Rotella T6 bandwagon. I also changed out the shifter bushings on my '09 wagon. IDK if others have figured this out, I'm reluctant to think I discovered a great idea. Basically what is in your way is the heat shield above the rear cat. It is held up by four bolts but the rear O2 prevents you from getting it off. Notice how on the front bolt on the right side there are two layers overlapping?

I peeled back the outer layer and used tin snips to cut right next to the bolt hole on the inner piece. That allowed me to spread it around the O2 sensor and get to everything.

At that point the driveshaft is the main obstacle. Getting the second bolt started in the rear bushing was a little tricky and you only get a couple clicks of rotation with a ratchet, but it really wasn't too bad.


Got the heat shield in place pushed the separated metal back together and once the bolt was cinched down it was like nothing had happened. It's secure and I've heard no vibration/noise that makes me think this was anything less than a brilliant way to go.

I am happy that I did my shifter bushings. If I could go back I wouldnt deal with the pain of installing it.

I bought them along with the subimods bracket and wire harness. The hardest part of the install was getting the stock brackets off the horns... mega pain in the ass... but everything else was super easy.

Check this thread for more info on the install: NASIOC: Hella Supertone Install

Added the "16' ladder on the roof rack" mod until I can pick up the work truck. So glad I got a hatch to fit all this crap in... It's a shame the wrong vehicle is getting a motor rebuild, lol.

Bought STI TMIC from SMUWRX34 on Sunday. Cleaned and installed.

Shaved about an inch from my intake piping and switched filters for better fitment in engine bay with my ghettofied airbox setup.

Took it to AWD Tuning for a tune. Driving the Teggy for the day. Should be done tomorrow.
