Default New ride

New (2019), red, stock Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor

Specs: 0-60 in 4.4 sec, 350+ WHP, AWD, 310 mi max range

Autopilot's traffic following (down to stop and then restart) was nice for the 105 minute commute I had tonight.

Keeping the STI, which I still love but the clutch was getting old in rush-hour and 18,000 mi/year at 18 - 19 MPG was a lot gas money.

May autocross the Tesla too - it's in the same class as the STI; at the last WDCR event, there were two AWD Model 3 that beat me by 1.5 seconds

Pulling radiator

STI decided it was time to crack the upper hose outlet on the radiator, so I order a new OEM rad (SCCA street tire class rules) and started pulling the dead one out.

Hope new one arrives in time to install and burp before Sundayís AX.

At least you had the Tesla as the daily!

Yep, having a daily driver came in pretty handy, drove to Pax River and back yesterday without range panic; recharged from the dryer plug last night and did 110 more miles today.

Radiator is done and cooling system burped. So far, so good - no leaks, temps are normal, and heat works.

Now, on to the rear diff leak, hopefully without cracking the temp sensor.

I changed the front and rear shifter bushings.
Cobb 6MT Shifter Bushing pack, no short shifter though.
It made no difference, still get locked out of 4th gear when pushing the car.
Here are the old ones, they don't look so bad even for an 07 STI

- Rolled 226,000mi on the beater Impreza on the way to work this morning.

- Hit the Mt. Airy Crazy Ray's this weekend and grabbed some odds 'n' ends for my Legacy. An extra set of manual folding power sideview mirrors off a '95 (those are really to sell), a 140mph speedo off the same '95, and a leather parking brake handle off an '02 Forester (but it will fit the BD/BG Legacys). Also grabbed some screw-in cargo net hooks out of an Outback wagon so I can install a cargo net (which I already have) in the trunk of the beater Impreza.

Ordered new tires for the beater Impreza. Current tires are Firestone Indy 500s, which I've been very impressed with, and figured I would get again. But as I was searching around online I decided to roll the dice on some Federals. Specifically, the Evoluzion ST-1, which is their new (I think) ultra-high performance summer tire. There are folks who rave about the bang-for-the-buck of their 595 RS-R, so I figured I'd give these a shot. They were about $60 cheaper (for all 4 in 205/55-16) than the Indy 500s.

the Only shifter bushings anyone ever purchases for these cars should be the TiC Holy Shift kit, makes a huge difference and actualy changes all the bushings, not just the ones on the shifter stabilizer link like shown above

During the week, one of the nights when it was thunderstorming outside I popped into the garage and did a little work on my languishing EZ30 swap. Way back when, I wasn't sure what I was going to do about a coolant overflow/reservoir, so I had made a "custom" setup with a small Gatorade bottle. Very trick!


A few months back I learned that JDM GC turbos had the coolant overflow bottle mounted in the left front fender. Hiding the overflow bottle in the fender means I can get rid of the Gatorade bottle on the passenger side of the engine bay, which frees up some space to put the PS reservoir over there where it's supposed to be. (As things are now, I have a Chase Bays universal PS reservoir over on the driver side, which means I have long supply and return hoses running over the top of the engine.) So, I bought a used fender overflow setup from someone here on NASIOC and installed that a few days ago.

This is a shot looking forward from the left front wheel, with the fender liner removed. The "new" overflow bottle is at the top.


Here's a view of the front driver side corner of the engine bay. The yellow cap is the top of the fill pipe for the coolant overflow bottle. There's a short rubber hose that connects the bottom of that fill pipe to the overflow bottle, which is hidden from view by the inner fender panel.


The red terminal on the inner fender panel is for the + voltage coming from the relocated battery. I had to unbolt that terminal, shorten the mounting lugs so that they didn't interfere with the new overflow bottle, then reinstall the terminal. Still need to hook the wiring back up.

Looking from the center of the car over towards the left front corner of the engine bay. In the bottom left of the photo is the radiator cap and the overflow hose connection. Unfortunately, it points the wrong way (since I thought the coolant overflow was going to be somewhere on the passenger side), so I'll have to reorient that to clean up the hose routing.


Next is to figure out the PS reservoir and hoses. I have a few options - an OEM Outback one, plus a couple junkyard finds - just need to determine which fits best and where exactly it fits.

Adjusted the parking brake handle on the beater Brighton. Something I've been meaning to do for a while.

Installed this factory second radiator shroud on my daily beater for high performance daily driving.

Pulled the driver's door panel off of the Impreza coupe to do a little window troubleshooting. Put things back together. Drove the car to work this morning and discovered the inside door handle doesn't work. *sigh* I think I've done this to myself once before. I guess I get to pull the door panel off again this evening!

Fixed the inner door handle so it's functional again. Also found 2 loose bolts on the window regulator crank assembly (1 had actually fallen out completely and was stuck in the adhesive at the bottom of the vapor barrier). Tightened those up with some Loctite, window operates much more smoothly now with less rattling.

Default What did you really do to your car today? V3.1

Finally dropped off parts for a built motor for my coupe this morning!

Using a 22e or 22t block, just not sure about a few things yet. Either way itíll be a 2.0/2.2 hybrid with forged internals. Canít wait.
