If you can't tell, I went from Hella trumpet horns to Hella Supertones. I'll be painting both sets and wiring them up in the future for quad horns, but for now, I just want to get rid of the pink horns. Damn you sun for fading the red to pink!

just gone done doing the clutch.

First time was a pita, even with a lift.
I think the next time will be much smoother

Reinstalled my Greddy SE exhaust. Bought the car with it, decided it was too loud so I picked up an OEM exhaust, decided that is too quiet, so now I'm back to the loudness. We'll see what happens next

Changed the trans and diff fluid with subaru extra s and their additive, that stuff is expensive.

And apparently I broke this:

I don't know how and I don't know when.

But I'll be looking into replacing all the lateral links and the trailing arms.

I finished putting in my swap today.
Brembos all around, new axles front, 20k axles back, r180 rear diff, bronze rays wheels to fit Brembo's, and 6 speed transmission.
Topped off trans with mobil1 synth, filled rear diff with Mobil 1 synth, changed oil with Mobil 1 synth and mobil 1 oil filter and changed out propane tank with fully filled tank.
Did a test drive with 6 month old gas and got spark knock. Proceeded after turning propane to 80 psi which helped a little but still need to hook up laptop to check tune. Did a u-turn and found myself facing the wrong direction. Hit gas again and was magically in the right direction. Lol.
All in all it was fun. Now I need to find out what the banging noise was on back left side when I up shift or down shift and find the oil leak so car won't look like its caught fire. :-)

Have a good night everyone.

Finishing up the downpipe for the twinscroll. I had one on the car but it hung down way too low. Now it is nice and tight and fixed the mid pipe flange as well. Shouldn't have anymore leaks and I shouldn't have to worry about scrapping the exhaust anymore. Pics will follow once I get it installed.

Here we go. I didn't take a before pic but the welds were crap and had small pin hole leaks. The down pipe hung down enough that it would scrape over big bumps, you can see the scrapes.

We cut the pipe 1 1/2" to bring it up and put a new extension on it to get it flush with the mid pipe. We smoothed both flanges to have it seal properly.

I should have taken a few more pics buy I was too busy working to think about pics. It is going to take me awhile to get used not needing to take bumps at 60 degree angles. I need to wrap the rest now that it won't scrape off.

I had Curry's Auto replace my:

Flywheel (New OEM)
Clutch and Pressure Plate (Excedy Stage 1 from RSD)
http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Exed...-STI-2004-2011

Spent about $400 at the Craftsman store replacing tools my 'friends' have borrowed never to return.

Also picked this up today.

http://www.milwaukeetool.com/tools/c...et-kit/2457-21

I used it to replace my belts.

Tried to fix my terrible exhaust leak. I just couldn't find it. It has to be on the header somewhere though because that is the only thing I touched. I'll probably just order up all new gaskets and try again.

You could check it by holding a lighter around all the gasketed areas.

Sometimes at idle exhaust leaks suck air in, I had that problem with the slip flange on my gt spec style headers.

The GS gaskets will also solve your problem.

Based upon how loud the leak is you'd think it would be extremely obvious. Sounds almost like I have no exhaust on the car. I know the uppipe/header gasket is one of the more common leak spots and I found that one a little loose but it still sounds like it's leaking elsewhere. I have a feeling new gaskets is the only good cure.

It looks like it wasn't installed properly to begin with, which would explain why it broke. Isn't the endlink supposed to go between both of the tabs on the lateral link and the bolt through both holes, not just bolted to the outside one like it appears in that picture?

Indeed it was mounted to the outside.
I have seen it done on other cars with no issues. Mine decided to be grumpy with me.

This was done because the sway bar didn't play nice with end links.

I fixed it for now, but I'm going to upgrade the links anyways.

I personally wouldn't trust it. That's a lot of force on that thin piece of metal.

You sure it's the right rear bar for the car? I had a problem on my first WRX when I got an incorrect sway bar. It appeared to fit just fine but I kept breaking endlink bolts. I think it had too much tension on it.

Its a perrin rear bar for the Sti.

And I'm pretty sure the mounting tabs are different on the lateral links between wrx wagon and Sti.

I am going to leave the end links mounted the way they are for now, and upgrade the lateral links soon.

If you're just upgrading lateral links then it's an easy call and I'd just get STI specific ones and run the STI endlinks.

I think the Eibach/SPC links actually come with a block for the endlink mount that you could put on the top or bottom depending on which style endlink you have.
