Filled up with e85 for the first time yesterday and got the car running nicely on a basemap. Today, there will be lots of logging/tuning.

From yesterday, but pulled the rear bumper cover and support to install hitch. No going to tow but for my platform bike rack.

First time under my STI - wow, the rear mufflers are big, but the piping even from the mid pipe is small. Definitely a exhaust upgrade will be in the works.

My WRX didn't have fender liners and it hydro locked.

If you're going to run a CAI with liners or not, put one of these on too

how exactly did it hydro lock? did you go thru a river or something to where the filter was completely under water? like i said above i've sucked up water more than 10 times all on different occasion's over a 4 year period.
Oh and thanks for the link. i might buy one of those.

Dropped off my car to replace the crankcase gasket, which was leaking. Luckily, it's covered under warranty, in theory...

Same. I've got a ram air but my passenger side fender liner isn't there so I'm always cautious when driving over big puddles. I've gone through a flooded street, got the maf wet, car stalled. Cleaned maf housing, ran like new.

Put on new front brake pads and regreased everything. While I was at it I figured I'd install not stainless steel brake lines. Finally got around to taping up my top mount. About to finish up plastidipping my wheels.

I was part of an accident yesterday, guy in front of me slammed on the brakes, we were in the far left uturn lane so instead of ramming into him, I hopped the curb, the lady behind me ran into the guy in front of me. Thankfully since I'm not lowered, nothing broke.

Just ordered my catback.

I'll be running fully catless now. Thinking of how to get it inspected and pass.

Then you shouldn't have a problem with inspection. Who tuned it and what numbers did it make?
