Usually if the prices are ok I go OEM, if not I usually go with stainless steel and cut to length. Most common bolts are m8x1.25 and m10x1.25
Thanks for the site, i'll be looking at it, appears much easier to find the bolts than looking at OEM diagrams

After over 15 years of building fun go fast cars. And watching all of these people stripping cars to part out instead of fixing, Ive been really enjoying watching people tastefully modify cars. Almost an OEM + kind of build. Great work I look forward to more posts

Thanks, i'll be 37 in August so not trying to act like i'm 20 anymore with my first WRX.

Spent some time and after deciding not to buy a new iWire intake manifold harness for $400+ I decided to take all of the stock wrapping off mine and redo it all. Ordered 2 new plugs from iWire to replace my broken ones and cleaned out the rest with electrical cleaner. See how it holds up with this wrap.

The before;




The after;




Painted my stock rad stays like @KeithS05RS2.5



Dropped off my manifold, mishimoto upper coolant tank, alt, PS pump and a/c brackets off to get powdercoated. They don't stock wrinkle black so went with a textured satin black.

Injector Dynamics emailed me that they cleaned and flow tested my 1050x and everything was good to go so paid them and they'll be heading back my way. Slow but steady progress.

Powder coated is much cheaper! Really want my whole engine bay black but love the red wrinkle as well.

So I was thinking about the car last night and the fuel system when I realized I never put the top TGV gasket on. I put the phenolic to block but not phenolic to TGV so today took off the TGV and added that gasket.

Last night sprayed my coolant crossover tube wrinkle black, new bolts are coming in tomorrow and will install that.

Did a small thing today after getting OEM o-rings for the crossover tube I was able to reinstall that.



Still waiting on parts to get back from PC, i assume next week or so which is fine, in no rush.

New header bolts and nuts came in tonight so went in the garage for 20 minutes and installed the HKS EL header. Header was extremely easy to install, no issues with having to stretch it out to fit the bolts. Decided not to coat or wrap as if these last me 2 years i'll be happy. Plan on upgrading to KillerB holy eventually so this should be good till then. Will be getting the Grimmspeed coated 2 bolt up-pipe so that well help with turbo spool.

Received my ID 1050x back today from being cleaned and flow tested. Forgot to ask for new buckets as the old ones were stuck in the stock TGV housings. Had to take those out causing slight marks on the lower portion of the bucket that sits in the TGV. Shouldn't be an issue was the o-rings were perfectly fine.

Installed the injectors and IAG fuel rails.






Also did complete brake job on front and rears. Don't mind the calibers as they look to have been painted multiple times. Brakes were basically brand new but from sitting outside for 2 years they were sore on the eyes. Eventually would will do subaru 4/2 pot upgrade until i'm able to do a full 6speed swap.

Made a large purchase today power wise. Ordered Cobb FMIC, catted down pipe and EBCS. Thankfully the wife and I have separate bank accounts otherwise she might kill me. Thankfully Cobb has the 15% military discount cause that saved me over $300 on the purchase.

Also ordered Grimmspeed coated up pipe. Last real big ticket item is the exhaust. Trying to get everything for the engine so I can actually get it running and driving and then fix up the body issues after.

Was able to finish up my tank, been waiting on the upper foam gasket for the top cover to come in from FASTWRX which came in today. So finished that up and put the rear seats back in and buttoned that up.

Today was a good day in the garage. Picked up my powder coated parts and they came out great. Got the intake manifold, power steering bracket and A/C compressor all done in black. Also go in the new 1050x buckets from Injector Dynamics. Originals werent too bad off but just for safe measure ordered new ones and put those in place. Also got my Grimmspeed coated up pipe in during the week and installed that into its resting home.





Had to order new turbo stay brackets as when taking everything apart i noticed the shop that did the build (i assume) didn't reinstall them so only thing holding the turbo in place was the uppipe and downpipe.



So now naturally i put the turbo in its spot, and secured it down, just have to order the Blouch oil feed line to finish off that install.



Also put the intake manifold, wiring harness and turbo overflow tank back in its spot. Car is starting to come back together slowly.







Cobb downpipe, EBCS and coolant overflow tank should be here Monday. Cobb said the FMIC won't be in till end of the month/beginning of august.

The tank is nice but if it wasnít already on the car when I bought it I wouldnít have it. Iíd rather have the KillerB just because it saves a few more inches in the bay. Mishimotos piece while very nice is basically the same size as the OEM one.

Received my Cobb EBCS, and coolant overlow tank. Installed the EBCS and was done cause its 90+ degrees in my garage even with a 70" ceiling fan and a wall fan by the car bay. Definitely need more fans to circulate the air, but anyway hooked up the EBCS.






Ordered my Group N transmission mount from FastWRX so hopefully that comes next week. Got in the Kartboy transmission crossmember bushings just waiting on the mount.

Spent some time today and started building the fuel lines. Still have to order the Aeromotive IAG mounting bracket to finish it off but started with the feed line for now.








Once I order the FPR mount I'll be able to finish that off. I deleted the PCV system so i'll vent that out into the fender area.

Yeah, this is the IAG fuel line kit so used what they provided but i'll most likely be updating them to AN. All I know is the quick connect to the stock fuel line is a PITA to get into the braided line. I think i have to redo the one i already finished to try and get it in a little more.

Hey there, check out pic #6 in my thread. You can see the AN adaptors for the stock fuel lines you could add, as a possible future list of upgrades to help tighten up the fuel system later with all AN fittings.

Thanks, Iíve seen Cobb has the AN quick disconnects I might have to purchase and do it now sooner than later. And just go ahead and pick up the T fittings.

BTW how much of a PITA was that Chase Bays kit to install on the rack? Everything Iíve read is you have to lower or drop the rack, really want it to clean up the bay.
