Dropped in my engine and test fitted turbo and intercooler

It's getting close! Had to order some more couplers and bends, but the IC piping is almost ready.

Decided to move it to storage, where it will be getting an EJ207 transplant. It wouldn't crank.

Worked on my bike instead.

Replaced the leaking steering rack on my 13 WRX with the 15 STi rack. Also added Super Pro SR bushing and Cusco SR Power Brace. Highly recommend this mod.

Pulled the starter. If I short the terminals, the starter spins but the bendix doesn't engage. I'll borrow a starter for long enough to drive the damn thing to the storage room.

Sold the RPF1s and put the stock wheels back on with some 20mm spacers all around.

- Painted the window crank handles. Both were heavily sun bleached; unfortunately I don't have a "before" pic. I used Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric "charcoal gray", which turned out to be a little too light, but close enough. I would say in person it looks closer than it looks in the picture.



- Took the Rotas off the Legacy (put it up on jack stands) so I could make sure the tires aren't flat-spotted. The Legacy has been sitting in the garage for quite a while, not moving, but it might actually move under its own power in the coming month or two.



Tires seem to be fine. May have lost a wheel weight on one of the fronts, as there is a little vibration at highway speed, but I don't think it's due to flat-spotting.

Is that some sort of dash cam on your dash?

Had some fun on muddy dirt roads on my buddy's property. The summer tires weren't the best in the sloppy conditions, but I didn't get stuck, so it's all good.

Got it running just long enough to get to my storage room. It was pinging audibly on the way. Time to prep the engine for removal and order a replacement...

Finally swapped back to the original parking brake cables on my 05 Saabaru. Last year I did a full ver 7 STi drive train swap into it and mistakenly used the parking brake cables that came on the knuckles. Turns out that was a big mistake as the cables were too long and resulted it in poor parking brake lock down.
Also got rid of the ugly Enkei PF01 center caps. Got lucky with a set of old Saab center caps I had laying around from a failed attempt at using them Enkei RPF1 a few years ago. They fit perfectly on the new PF01.

Swapped out both front axles and changed out both front ABS sensors. Turned out both sensor wires had been rubbing the outer axle boot, and the passenger side sensor finally wore through and failed. At least I know what the issue was.

Thanks Pat for the help!

Took my Outback to Boxerfest yesterday. Glad I took an extra pair of shoes and socks, found out a pair of Columbia shoes I bought are not waterproof

How the hell did the door and fender suddenly decide they wanted to occupy the same space?!?! I've never noticed anything unusual about how the door opens/shuts, like it's got a loose hinge or isn't aligned properly, so this was completely out of the blue.

For now I just bent the fender back out with a bigass screwdriver. The Jessup Crazy Ray's still has 2 green Imprezas as of today, so I'll keep an eye on that and head up there later this week to see about getting a "new" fender.
This door/fender interference continues to randomly occur. I've "straightened" the fender a couple of times over the past couple months. Today it did it again when I stopped to get gas, and it got the fender pretty good - bent it in to the point I knew closing and opening the door would just make it worse. Fortunately, I happened to have a set of hedge clippers in the back seat, so I pulled those out and used them to pry the fender back out so it wouldn't catch the door again.

Have had my WRX for a little over a week and already installed Perrin shift stop and intake filter, Nameless axleback, RallyArmor Mud Guards.

I have an Accessport but being I'm still in the break-in period (around 500 miles on odo) I'm letting the car settle before installing it.

I'm not new to modifying cars, I had a 2012 Mazdaspeed3 with over $5k worth of mods I did to it before the ex made me get rid of it, so I'm excited to see what the WRX can do.

- Flushed and bled the brakes on the Legacy, in conjunction with installing a used Stoptech 328x28mm setup on the front and in anticipation that the car might actually move under its own power at some point in the next couple months. The fluid in the system was ATE Super Blue, which hasn't been sold in 4 or 5 years, which shows has disappointingly long it has been since the car was last operational.

- Rolled the EZ30 in the Legacy over by hand about a revolution or so, just to check if it had "frozen up" while it's been sitting for so long.
