Default Hows it look so far?

I got a 1996 Subaru Sti v3 Ej20k, the car came with a zerosport air intake, 3" catback exhaust and a blitz boost controller. Will be keeping the zerosport pipe just changing the filter to Apexi and I will add a downpipe to my exhaust.

So far ive only done maintance on the car, oil/filter (Mobil 1 5w30 syntheic with fram filter), fuel filter, tranny/diff (redline 75w90), coolant (subaru blue), spark plugs (ngk iridium), and power steering fluid (mobile 1 synthetic atf). Ive also put 1/3 seafoam into gas tank havent added any into vacum lines yet, and I had to change a shifter bushing because there was alot of play... And I only use Husky 94 octane gas.

I got an oil change coming up again soon and this time I am going to use shell rotella t6 5w40 with a subaru blue filter. Will be buying winter tires soon also I am thinking goodyear nordics because they are the cheapest ($112 per)

Anything else I should do for maintance? I am also thinking of rust proofing/undercoating for winter and maybe a block heater too.

Ether than that the car seems to run great, I got one more shifter bushing to replace and there should be no play at all... and I need to figure out whats going on with my tranny fluid its on low right now, I am wondering why, I am going to check if its leaking... hopfully not and just needs to be topped up.

Hows it look so far? Anything else I should replace or do to my car? Thanks alot

Update your profile ....so we know were you are?

-IMO Block heater only if your in an area were its -10F for most of the winter nights
-If you have a warn garage and time do a Break Fluid Flush get on it. Use Super Blue or another colored fluid, it will show when its fully new fluid way faster then guessing on the clear stuff.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say you're in alberta because you're using husky. Not saying its a bad thing, just pretty much the only option for 94 there i think...

is this a type RA car? if so it won't have undercoating but if it's a normal sti it should have factory undercoating which is pretty good. If you are in alberta, then a block heater isn't a bad idea but I don't think its totally necessary. Just maintain your coolant which you have done.

Any snow tire will be good. I'm a fan of the kumho kw19 or the yokohama ig20 but that's just me.

I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Hits -40's here... so I guess block heater will happen, and I will forsure change the brake fluid. I just change the oil today with rotella t6 with subaru blue filter, and got a new set of winter tires today too goodyear nordics 205/60/16 balanced and nitrogen filled.
