Thanks man, it's great hearing that people appreciate what I'm doing. Definitely helps keep me motivated to get it all back together and back on the track.

Sneak preview of the new rotated intake manifold setup. Had an issue with my original TGV deletes when I got them powder coated; they didn't mask off the injector bungs so I ordered a new set of black TGV deletes to replace them.

All the hardware is from BoltBoys and the phenolic spacers are from KSTech.

Are you running all braided lines from the firewall? If yes, are you using the IAG dampers?

I am running braided lines from the firewall to the rails, I didnít use dampers when I made 409whp on the FP Blue but I have thought about adding them going forward.

Week 22 without my motor....I'm having race FOMO.

Added some black STI badges and finally cleaned off my wheels.

Out of curiosity, how do the +40 NT03s fit with 265s and the spacers? Any rubbing? Alignment specs (and to avoid poke)? I'm curious because I have the same set of NT03s but with Continental DWS06 265/35s from my 2015 WRX and am in the process of buying a 2013 STI...I'm wondering how much of a pain it would be to try to get my NT03s on it.

They fit great but I donít have it lowered to far. I have very minor rubbing inside the fender splash guard just behind the front bumper. Iíve got -2.5F/-1.8R and they sit pretty flush with the wheel wells. I did have to get my rears rolled and I have rubbed on the upper/front plastic pin holding the front splash guard. I just took out the pin and havent thought about it since

Anybody have any first hand experience with an AGI Precision cage? Looking for some added protection for all my track days.

Got a bonus and I'm looking into putting it towards some track oriented bits for the hatch. I'm looking for opinions as I'm going between the following:

1. BattleAero Hatch Mount Wing

2. BattleAero Chassis Mount Wing

3. Cusco Toe Arms and Trailing Arms
4. AGI Roll Bar

Thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

Another small update as I plug away at all the little stuff.

Changed to a 45* coupler to get over the alternator and around the AC compressor.

Upper coolant tank is back where it should be and I wire wheeled the hell out of the bracket as it was disgusting.

Got my alternator post rotated, wire crimped and insulated. Just waiting on a replacement alternator plug.

BOV is welded on, this was the first time I've welded a SS BOV flange. Went fairly well with no warping. Manifold source is directly under the throttle body, I drilled out the nipple and the mounting boss under the TB and tapped them both for 1/8 NPT fittings so I have one left over if I ever decide to add something that needs manifold reference. IAT is also installed in the former PCV location.

Switched to 6AN hoses for head to turbo and turbo to AOS coolant lines.


Not a whole lot left to do. I'm going to go back over everything I've put in and recheck torque on all fasteners and check all AN fittings. I'll be fabbing the other charge pipe this weekend and dropping the radiator back in so it'll be ready to start as soon as I get my base map from JR.
