heh, DC ITCA are
my rides

Default My first tune up of a diffrent type of used car.

Hehe, this is gonna sound weird.

Cars going in for paint. Once it gets out of the paint booth it needs a full tune up.
Let me see if I am missing anything, please feel free to remind or add your opinion.

New oils for Motor, transmission and differentials.
Its a full v7 sti swap, so oil suggestions are welcome. Car right now is using a synthetic motor oil(I am forgetting the weight and type ATM) and stock sti fluids for transmission. Any suggestions on oils all around?

Have Radiator fluid flushed and brake fluid flushed.
Replace fans (they are busted). I should get after-market units. Any suggestions on good after-market ones?
check samco hoses, make sure everything is ok.
Replace thermostat (I think its sticking in cold weather) do I need a stock jdm sti unit or can I get a wrx one?

Need new rotors in rear. stock RS units.
Need new front rotors. I am using wrx rotors but am going (I have subaru EDM 4 pots).
Check SS lines, but I am sure they are in good condition.
New pads. I'm thinking stock RS rear pads and axis fronts. Ideas on a better rear pad that isn't real aggressive?

Now, power steering has 30k on it, I would love to change the ratio of the rack but thats not in the plan

Other then that, I have a new master cylinder in the car already and new gaskets for the TBE to be installed too.

what else am I missing?
thanks.

Why not do all the machanical work first so there is no chance to damage your new paint.
