Not denying your thoughts there but Subaru won't spend the extra $ even though it's worth it.

Also haven't installed it yet, but FINALLY ordered a new intake filter for my spt for my car. Only took me 4 years to decide to change it

My pops Mercedes e320 takes 8.5 of Mobil 1 0-w40, that oil change blows

Cleaned up the TXS TBE and ceramic coated the DP.

Ordered a new headlight backing cover from the dealership, no more foggy head lights for me.

The VHT header paint from advanced auto zone.
Stuff works pretty well, provided you follow the curing instructions.

I coat all my exhaust parts in the VHT and they all still looks pretty good.

I'll be getting some really good ceramic coating from Ceracoat for my hvlp set up soon hopefully.

Debating whether or not to spray and leave it as it, or spray/wrap/spray.

The only thing I would wrap headers with is the 1" Dei titanium wrap.

If its a DD then any old school fiberglass wrap is just going to peel and flake off.

I picked up my car from the shop.

- EVAP Canister replaced
- Seat belt replaced
- Windshield wipers replaced
- Transmission fluids drained and replaced
- New windshield



They didn't vacuum the car after doing all the work so the inside and outside was... well, it needs a bath.

Unfortunately the flushing/draining/replacing of the transmission fluids didn't resolve my problem, so I have to return the car. I am hoping that I don't have to drop it back of until next week... so I can enjoy the car for a while. I miss it.

yeah I was guessing about $250-350. Maybe a little more.

It just needs a little touch up on the driver corner. Entire passenger side is fine.

Well jackstands and a few days of PB blaster so this will hopefully be painless haha!

Also deleted my factory up pipe EGT sensor and plugs it with a bolt to fix my issue of it backing out every few weeks and the leak it caused!

Used to do diesel oil changes from time to time when I worked for Ford back home. School buses to firetrucks to random farm equipment.

PS Anyone who wants to change a turbo in a Powerstroke, good luck. Takes a couple days WITH the right tools.
