All other years suck*.

Agreed. Except for the new ones. I wont be going past 06 as eventually the car will be modded heavily. 07 has its issues as well as the 04. What is your preference on those diffs?

Yes congrats on the new wrx, my dream one day to buy a new one

+1 for dricore in basement, or if you want to find that specialty underlay, i do not think they carry it at lowe's home depot

Other ideas: engineered hardwood, or the click together vinyl planks from home depot, the planks do not wear good but if installed right and no heavy traffic they will last a while and you will not need to put anything for underlay (unless you need floor leveler)

You own multiple properties now?

Dricore is just so expensive. Not sure if you remember my basement, but I knocked out all the walls and made it about 50% larger will cost nearly 1k plus carpet if I do dricore

Yeah, I'm not sure. I ended up uninstalling Romraider and re-installing under a separate user account on my laptop with minimum protection settings and redownloaded the 32 bit Java, I think my machine updated it to the 64 bit because I wasn't paying attention. I now have set the 32 bit to never update.

All logs well with the Tactrix and wideband now with the Dynex converter.

Yeah but you get the Popsicles too. You can also find those just laying around. People will also save them for you if you ask. You know. Like soda can tabs .

that remindsme of this time when I must have been 8 or so, and I wanted to drink something, but had nothing sweet, so I decided to put a few popsicles in a cup and microwave them.

Turns out, they don't heat well, they have a very strange slimy texture to them.

Yes everytime I buy my dream car another smokin deal comes up that I can't pass up so I have to sell it. But its my 4th place. I bet I will buy another STI within 6-12 month once I get a bank loan on the place after it's fixed.

Screw the dri-core then and use one of the other options i said then, but you basement seemed pretty dry so you should be ok, I like the vinyl planks because they cannot absorb water but they are expensive too, im sure you will figure it out

I use a keyspan adapter for my wideband. 64 Bit windows 7 hasn't ever had a problem with that or Romraider. Excel 97 or 2k or whatever i have is a different story. Copy and paste kills it ~80% of the time. Reduced it to ~50% of the time by running excel as x86 or whatever. Small issue since I really have nothin to tune. It's been good to perfect for months.

I installed an IAT gauge with the sensor right before the throttle body yesterday but I think the sensor is DOA. Anyone know where I can find a ~250F IAT sensor? The gauge has been discontinued for years. Bought it NIB from some dude off of a 2 yr old classified thread. Nordskog digital.

NM. The gauge seems to work, just not like I thought. I guess the intercooler really keeps it stable at ambient. I thought it would vary more. Need a couple boosts runs to see if it actually works and how well it does so. Yesterday it seemed stuck right around 5 degrees above the outdoor temp gauge, and today it's around 2 over. 20 degree difference between the readings each day, so it's not a dead sensor. Whether its working is yet to be determined. Haven't driven it far so not enough info just yet. Probably reacts slow or something. Haven't put any real heat across it.

Damn, what are you now, 22?

I think I'm going to use this stuff called superseal: http://www.supersealonline.us/catego...-One-Subfloor/

$0.66/ft^2 vs about $1.75 for dricore. Going to measure it out to find exactly what I need today, but this seems like a pretty good solution for me.

i used some similar stuff like that inside to waterproof and it really works. i put a french drain in my basement and havent seen any water on my floor. if you cover the walls with 3mil plastic and tuck it behind that dimple board stuff as a french drain it works great.

It measures the temp of the intercooler housing, metal sensor in metal. Probably needs to mount in plastic to get proper air temps. Oh well. At least it reads something, even if it's really an IC heatsoak meter instead of an IAT gauge. Do any STi intercoolers use plastic end tanks? Guess I could go to a plastic intake manifold if I was really worried about it.

Yes, hoping it will all payoff one day in my 30's when the mortgages get paid off.

That stuff looks like the shiz, sounds like a better, more cost effective option, then you can pick whatever floor you want.

How big is your space? I might have some left over stuff from my basement floor. I can't remember the name off the top of my head but I can check it when I get home tomorrow. It is basically a plastic dimpled mat you roll out and then put the sub floor on it.

Just remembered. The stuff is made by delta flooring. Looks like the stuff in the link above but grey.
