^^^ I will build, but next winter. I want to drive it as is this summer and go to a couple shows.

Little update:

I got her out of storage and first had to find and fix this small, but annoying water leak on the pass side floor. The carpet would get a little damp in hard rain. I found the factory seam sealer was cracked, probably from the previous owners fender bender accident. I stripped it all down to bare metal and re-sealed all the seams with 3M Urethane seam sealer.

I finally bought my Agency Power EL header. I will probably sell my UEL AP header I have on there now.

And of course to run the header I had to get an 06'+ sti oil pan, baffle, dip-stick, tube, and Killer B pickup.

I've also been continuing my stock piling of parts needed for that next motor build. Each side job I do, I set a little money aside and save up for the next part on my list.

Got the 2.0L crank for the de-stroker

budget +2mm MPS rods (no longer available)

Big purchase....GSC S1 AVCS cams!

I just need GSC beehive springs, Ferrea valves, port my D25 heads, 4032 pistons (either Mahle, or custom JE's), add AVCS wires on Link. Plan for next winter: pull motor, do a proper paint job, install new built motor, and break-in/tune in the spring. I'm also toying with the idea of a very subtle custom wide body during the paint project
