Sonaxed the CRAP out of my front wheels. Had some nasty brake dust that would not come off.

I did mine awhile back and love the difference. I went with the tigwerks motor mounts though. Group N trans mount and torque performance pitch stop. It isn't a huge difference overall but you can tell the power gets put down a little sooner.

Anything you can do to get rid of those squishy OEM mounts and bushings is going to make a difference.

I still need to do my motor mounts.

Install day?

Do it evil, they really aren't as hard as most people make them out to be.

I ordered mine from Subarugenuineparts.com. I'm in Afghanistan right now, my stepdad however says that the car starts up quicker, less sloppy when accelerating and decelerating. He doesn't have a good sense as far as noise/vibration/harshness because my car is way loud anyways, but says its not much of a difference with vibration or noise. He doesn't hear the transmission as most people claim when swapping out the transmission mount and pitchrod, but once again, my car is loud so..

Pulled the tape off of the intake.



Hopefully everything dries up properly tomorrow so I can slap it back in and "bake" the paint in the engine bay

Replaced my bad Whiteline ball joint with a good one. Took about twenty minutes.

Good to have a working car again.

Took to it my brother to get an alignment. The rear was spot on and didn't need to be touched but the front alignment had pitiful camber and toe was off. Alignment is now at maxed front camber and 0 toe. Drives much better now.

pulled the oil seals on the ver 9 transmission and r180 diff i picked up a few months ago. Trying to get the little things done before I start doing the actual swap in 2 weeks.

So excited to finally have collected all the parts (hopefully i did) necessary for the swap. If anybody has advice/tips in doing the swap send me a PM. I've been in contact with a few people already in getting advice, but any additional information is welcomed.
