I've always kept a tire pressure gauge in my car (I have two in the BRZ right now for some reason...). I'm more inclined to refill them now that I have a warehouse to work in at work. Before that it was either too rainy during the summer or too cold during the winter. When it was neither I'd busy myself with the golden opportunity of a perfect day!

I REALLY need Hella horns. I almost never honk my horn, but the other day I did in my BRZ and it was the puniest thing I've ever heard! I don't like how I've seen them set up on the BRZ, though. Looks weird, too exposed, and low to the ground. Someone had the idea of putting a mesh grille, so I might try that.

Well, yeah, different color, but I don't think there's much higher one can go? I dunno.

Ordered Bridgestone Potenza RE970as Pole Positions through Costco and got them put on today, WOW these tires are nice, will be interesting to see how they do this winter but they kick much ass on pavement, by far the best all seasons I have ever driven on.

Tell Dom to hush or you'll shave his beard.



I think I'm going to put my snow tires on my stock wheels today. I also think I'm going to paint the stock wheels Grimmspeed Subaru BBS gold.

Ok so while they are amazing on dry and wet roads, they are horrible (but fun ) on loose snow, luckily I don't drive it too much in the winter any more.

Put on the new TPS and also the new IAC yesterday. Radmobile seems to be running quite a bit better now. RPMs are at normal levels now at least. Next thing I believe I will be designing and installing is the snorkel kit. Haven't really seen any kits for sale so thinking I am going to be doing this one on my own. It's interesting.. Most people on here are going for the quick street car with awesome performance mods..... I am going for the offroad rally car. Shall be interesting

My interest is peaked. Recently it has come to my attention how sexy utility can be versus street style & tuning performance.

Accidently put 87 octane in the WRX.

Thankfully Kiwi came to the rescue with a can of torco.

Super appreciate it!

I guarantee it won't happen again though! Once is enough for me!
