Victory pics, running so nice. Had to sort some hood closure issues today; also had to buy a new rad cap, I forgot that I had given mine to my buddy for his ej207 swap.

Next; it's time to decide what tuning platform will be purchased.



do you see it?


corrected.


victory cruise to the exhaust shop. Removing the welded 1pc turbo back exhaust and going to a flanged setup.

TY!! much left to do, in time. I need to meet some subaru gurus. This car need so many updates in the minor detail areas. Next up for me is attacking the G+ lines, I'm too fond of the OEM look so those gotta go.



When you hate friends & love them at the same time. I had no business buying these parts but TY Doug-lasssss for the tag!


Yesterdays deliveries.


Reminds me of the late 90's when your civic had to have them red & clear tails.

Nothing much happening here, went to visit a friends shop, another friend snapped this dope photo.

Mechanically I need to revisit a few things:

- Aluminum coolant cross pipe has a leak, low-key seems like destiny. I'll be taking this time to revert the Turbo inlet, turbo, manifold gaskets, injectors back to stock to properly take the state ref test.

- car has a P0452 at key-on alluding to a wiring fault. I'll be looking into that as well.

- experiencing a weird hum in boost with factory BOV and plan to smoke test for leaks; outside of those 3 things she's been running great.

Thanks Man. I'm excited about getting it squared away. Not that I get harassed or anything but having it official is the icing on the cake.


- Updates: Car needed a new windshield and I almost lost a side marker.


B&A replacement





saving a side marker on the fly = more jdm



Spotted in socal - hope I was on my best driving behavior




lastly, I ended up selling the old tails and purchased new ones. Now that I have non-necessary parts out the way I will focus on the whole ecu/bluetooth car update.

WZ - haha yes sir, one mans junk is another treasure. I've had 5ppl. already ask me to sell it to them. Not happening.

Winsor - TY!!! It's not so much patience, it's just knowing it was done right I'd say. It also gives me a chance to get hands on and familiar with the car. I'll learn from my mistakes and adjust formulas for what to mix and match and what not too.

- so far, I suspect boost leaks coming from the thermal gaskets or the TMIC core (yes, I've re-torqued). What did I learn, either weld the damn plenum, use RTV w/ such gaskets, or K.I.S.S; stay OEM.

Think I've found my editing style, needs some fine tuning but I have time God willing.

Car looks stunning!

Highlights are a bit washed out but who am I to criticize your art.

Hopefully weíre all here to enjoy your progression as an artist.

I appreciate that. I just started using lightroom, so i'll keep up the practice. I can only use my selection tool on my phone and not my mac which was where I edited these.

Keep up the great work man. Keeps me inspired to continue work on my GC. I have sooo much work in front of me with rust removal (got all the panels from subisavers). Trying to teach myself to weld so that I can do all the cutting and patching myself without the help of a body shop (until paint). Seeing this car keeps my eye on the prize haha

HAHA I will do my best sir. I think I may be keeping it for myself, as the wife threw me a curveball this weekend when she found a blob eye she really like.

Unfortunately I do not. I have not found the time to document everything I have done to the car since I got it in September last year (which has for the most part been maintenance and repairs). I hope to create a thread to document its progress (as well as update my thread on my 11 STi which I have not updated in a year) within the next week or so.

I'll be on the look out for some fresh content.


- Noticed a few things in my edits. What I see in app changes once the file is sent out. I guess in the future I'll go lighter on my edits so they appear as I'd like them too. I may rework some of these when I have more time.
