Installed a brand new, freshly painted WRB JDM V7 STi hood scoop and new GrimmSpeed matching splitter.

Found a replacement 4EAT TCU for my 1993 SS.

Installed Group N trans mount and Whiteline positive shift kit. Man, what a positive difference and sweet but subtle trans whine sound.

Found myself a temporary replacement gearbox to use while the original is being repaired. Cleaned up pretty well

And painted the front wheel wheels and started cleaning up the shocks for repainting

^If you ever happen across a 4EAT JDM TCU for 90-94 WRX with 20G let me know!

I swapped in my replacement TCU. Still have 4EAT 16 flashes of death. Put the NA TCU back in, no flashes???

I had an annoying exhaust leak. Replaced exhaust manifold and and exhaust manifold to up pipe gaskets with GS gaskets. The fire ring is a lot thicker than OEM and has about twice as many MLS layers. However, after bolting them in I could see a gap due to the fire ring being so thick on some parts. I tried bolting everything shut in a few different sequences and still had a gap. Put the OEM gaskets in, no gap.

I discovered the exhaust leak was most likely due to me not torquing the exhaust manifold to the passenger side head correctly. I must have left it finger tight a few weeks back when I removed it to reseal the oil pan. I have since replaced the crossover pipe and drivers side gasket in an attempt to fix the leak, but never noticed the passenger side being loose. Duh.

Put the GS back in and decided to give them a shot even with the gaps. Worked perfectly!

Next I decided to tackle the leaky power steering line. It's the only damn thing that leaks on the SS now. I got out my spare return line and realized the guy who I got it from chopped the end off so it was useless. Ordered a new assembly from Subarugenuineparts. I'd build my own lines but school starts up again Monday. I wonder what it is like to not have a car that is always breaking...

WRX is sitting in my parents garage awaiting autox this Sunday for the first time in a month.

The borrowed Forester is getting some work in hauling things to my new apartment. On trip 4 or 5 now. Sucker fits a ton.

Unfortunately no. I do have the trans code though: TZ102YB3AA. I also can't find any wiring diagrams in order to tease out any wiring differences between the early JDM and USDM 4EATs. It would be pretty cool to do a 93 JDM WRX EJ20G swap as it would almost be 100% plug and play.

At this point I am considering just doing a USDM WRX w/4EAT swap into my first gen turbo legacy SS or what you know as the Legacy RS . That would give me the ability to swap in a newer 4EAT and have tunability, and update all the crappy old wiring. But at least the SS is running like a champ right now so I don't have any rush.

I live in South of Houston and the flood waters are coming my way so I took precautions. Our streets may flood, not sure yet. I live by Oyster creek and its projected to be full bank or possibly crest later today and into the evening.

Replaced the front o2 sensor in my '04 WRX. Got rid of the P0031 CEL I've had for, oh I don't know, almost 10 years Seriously, I've had a CEL pretty much ever since I installed my TBE. I always assumed it was a minor CEL due to the cat situation. I don't really drive the car that much (~4000 miles a year), so it never really bothered me. The car drove fine except for kinda terrible gas mileage. Guess it's been running really rich. Now that I'm driving the car more these days, I've started to fix all the little issue and even gonna do the open source tune thing. Once I cheked out the CEL and figured what the issue was, I knew I had to replace the o2 sensor before I could start tuning.

Got a Denso sensor from Amazon and put that baby in. The install went off without a hitch, which is rare for me. I always seem to have bad luck with a stuck bolt or something silly like that and it ends up taking me two hours for an oil change or something dumb. Well, today everything went as smooth as silk

It's weird now when I catch my gauge cluster out of the corner of my eye and don't see the yellow CHECK ENGINE lit up anymore. I keep thinking somethings wrong because I don't see it anymore, lol

Changed half the spark plugs in my '04 WRX (drivers side). Took an hour to do the one side because it was my first time and the rear coil pack bolt was fighting me the whole time. None of my sockets, extensions, swivel adapters could really get it (all 3/8, next time I'll be ready with 1/4). Ended up using a harbor freight bolt extractor socket and removed it by hand. Uggg. By the time I got both spark plugs swapped out, I lost the light outside so I figure the other two can wait until tomorrow.

Here's a pic of the factory plugs after 13 years and ~50k miles (sorry for the flash)

Installed new OEM power steering lines on the SS. What a pain in the ass. Took forever to get the new lines threaded on the hard lines of the steering rack. It would have been easier to install them when I replaced the steering rack a few weeks ago, oh well.

Steering feels great and for the first time in years there are no leaks whatsoever under the SS! When I did the head gaskets years ago a cam seal leaked, there was a cracked oil pan, cracked transmission fluid lines, the steering rack pissed fluid out of every seal...
