Doesn't look as though I will either. No one seems to have set a time but I've definitely got plenty to keep me busy otherwise.

In reference to the post up your mods comment this thread started that way but not many followed the format.

I'm at about 300whp on my '05 WRX Wagon. Plenty of mods, mostly bolt-ons and a tune.

I have not the faintest clue how much I'm putting down. Probably 150whp? I'm kinda curious to know, but it's pretty inconsequential.

Nope. Not in the slightest.

Not yet, anyways.

Anybody want to have a mini-meet at my house after xmas? I have the week off and I'm swapping my clutch solo. Somebody to help wrestle the engine out would be a big help..... tons of free beer involved.

I guess if anybody has an install needed we could get a few things done.

I actually need to do a clutch (and more importantly) a timing belt. Just need to pick up the parts and flippin' do it at some point. Probably wouldn't be bad, and id be willing to help however I can. Can't take you up on the beer sadly! Lol

Whereabouts is your place, and what kind of equipment do you possess?

I heat it with my outdoor burner I use for brewing.... keeps it about 20 above ambient, yesterday I kept it to about 55 degrees in there. I have all the tools to do 90% of major work on subarus(cherry picker and leveler being the main items to get the engine out). I have a 25gal compressor but no impact yet (hint, hint santa).

I know I can get it done solo, it just blows. I figure with a helper it should be a one day job to do the clutch and a few other things I'll do while the engine is out ( koyo rad, air pump delete, spark plugs, oil pickup and maybe pan).

If I can get the parts, think I could get some help changing out my clutch? I'll be happy to help with yours. I could use the experience for sure. I'm kinda new to doing the more intensive types of work to cars. I can bring some pizza!

It'll be my first subaru clutch, but clutches in general are easy, it's just hard to get to. I think we can work something out, I bet we could do both in two days.

Only thing I'll say is I plan on going the engine pull route to get the clutch out, not the remove tranny route. Easier to pull the engine without a lift IMO. In that case you'll need all the gaskets/fluids related to removing the engine.

Do you plan to lift the engine out, or drop the trans from under the car?

Über jealous!

Spotted a darker silver (don't know the color abbreviation) STI with Red Rally Armor Mudflaps and a rear window spoiler on Stadium/Red Arrow in Mattawan headed back our direction...looked clean!!! Anyone know 'em?

I'm building a new keg-freezer for my homebrews as my current beer fridge crapped out on me last weekend. That's Friday night and Saturday. Upgrading the whole setup in the process Use less energy, and provide more usable space so I can keep four kegs and a fermenter in it all at once.

Sunday I should get on my Christmas shopping.

No meet up for me.

Seems to me it's going to be your hard for your Yeast to attenuate if your beer is fermenting at temperatures you are trying to keep for keg cooling. However it would be a good way to Lager the Beer.

I don't mind upping the fridge to 55* for a couple weeks to ferment my lagers in if I have to.

I do most of my lagers in winter and I have a cold room that stays about 56* this time of year as well so for the most part I'll just be lagering in in the freezer, which will be just fine at my serving temp of 38-40*

Ahh I gotcha, nice to have such a cold room for Lager Fermentation. My brother and I have a Fermentation chamber we built. So we can set the Temp to whatever we want it to be

Is there a day that works better for everyone? I have a family thing Saturday...so I'm hoping for Sunday or early Saturday...

We could always do Fourth Coast Again, or The Beer Exchange? Preferably Sunday for The Beer Exchange...

Sunday @ The Beer Exchange sounds alright to me. As long as I don't run into the under-21 issue.
