^purty!

So my driver side window has sucked FOREVER but recently has gotten so bad that I had to read what was up. I read tonight how normally loose bolts will account for it so I hopped out of bed n ripped off the door card to find this:


Apparently my window motor tried to rip my door apart and from the looks of it, was almost successful.
It sucked b/c all of my spare parts are back in richmond so the only parts I could use to fix/tweak it were stoopid home furnishing hardware...came up with this tho, im pretty hype b/c it actually worked, if only till i can fix it when im back in the RIC

Epic fail on Downpipe install... The lift was occupied so i decided to be "proactive and take off all the bolts while waiting. Then the guys car broke down so it stayed on the lift the ENTIRE day so i basically put my intercooler back on and "limped" home with the bolts still off it hearing **** ping and fall off my car and choking on exhaust fumes. ( At least i got to hear my turbo scroll) So now my car is in my drive way until tom morning when i go to the lift and finish my install. Good thing the lift is less than a mile away.

Mine was like that when I bought it (pretty sure it was something the previous owner messed up). I replaced the hose sections and zip tied at all the couplers. Seriously weird boost problems before fixing that.

whats crazy is an old buddy of mine bought an 02 wrx like that, but he had hoses run all over the place....in the wrong places, was nutso. So i re-ran everything using my car n the service manual as a guide n he said it ran like crap after i 'fixed' everything.

buuuut this kid dogged his car everyday n blew it a few months later
