I guess I could.. but my cars are fairly stock so not sure if it's worthy of its own thread.

Just added my new front fender emblems, much nicer than the all black emblems. The red WRX lettering really stands out against the matte black. Lets see how much more I can do before the wife starts making comments.

I picked up some '17 sti injectors and the guy threw in his sti fuel lines with them. Unfortunately they didnt fit the jdm sti tgv deletes so i went into my spare parts bin and removed some old dirty jdm top feed ej205 rails.

After degreasing and an acidic cleaner, i got this super awesome neochrome type look to them









You can see how the RH side by the turbo turned way more blue from the heat where the LH side rails stayed more orangish red due to less heat.

Those with aftermarket rails and lines should consider putting some heat reflective sleeves over the lines on the turbo side

I dont like the attention. Just enjoy showing restoration pictures.

This is what that neo chrome RH fuel rail was hiding behind

Heres another restore i got to do but never posted because i didnt end up keeping the item. One day i was browsing ebay and came across an amazing condition sti tmic listed as a 2015 usdm unit. I could tell from the sti logo, the end tank design, one piece y pipe, and size that it was actually a jdm v9 sti tmic listed for $225 shipped in mint condition. Too good to be true since all other jdm tmics are listed for $400 and in just complete garbage condition. So i quickly snagged it up but what i received was this





The backside had much more damage not pictured. It was all due to a very horrible pack job and not the shipping companys fault. I opened a return thru ebay and got a prepaid label to ship the tmic back to the seller. before doing so, i did the seller a favor and the shipping company a solid so they wouldnt get stuck with a bill that wasnt their fault, i repaired the intercooler and packaged it extremely well to send back.







I was going to further shine it up with my aluminum cleaner but figured it would be way too much of a mind **** on the seller lol. The seller sent my refund almost instantly after tracking showed he got it back and it was never relisted so i think he ended up keeping it for himself after seeing its new condition.

Installed a new Perrin pitch stop mount today! I can definitely tell a difference. Strongly recommend the upgrade.

Installed the OEM STI side diffusers and rear spats on my STI. Love the look, fitment was 100% perfect as expected.

Drove my STI for the first time this year. Last time I drove her was back 12/24.

Had a great time, I love this car! Will clean her up tomorrow morning with some Griot's waterless car wash.. salted up pretty good.

Installed group N pitch stop mount, transmission mount, and transmission crossmember bushings. Did the Perrin shift stop and brass bushing last weekend. Just got back from beating it on the Tail of the Dragon and I must say itís more better. Noticeably louder in the cabin but worth the trade off to me.

Installed new Puma Drift Cat 6 Motorsports shoes (driver mod?). Should be good for an extra second or two on rallycross course next weekend.

Cool. I still run my good ol' PilotI's in my cars. In my WRX to work (warmer months) I got some leather dress slippers with rounded heel as I wear dress pants / shirt (suit sometimes) and don't want to look like a total idiot when I need to stop somewhere during my commute. I change shoes when I arrive my work's parking structure.

For me, updated my AccessPort firmware in preparation for their SF intake box for my STI which is currently running Stage1.

My buddy got me a Subaru Rally Team USA hoodie. Very cool, perfect timing too as it is made of thick material. Very warm.

I installed a rear view camera and hooked it up to my Fujitsu Ten head unit. My goal was factory appearance. Since the GR (or any 3rd gen Impreza) never came with a factory camera, I had my work cut out for me. I think I pulled it off.

Camera from a 13 Crosstrek:


After cutting the plastic trim, I used touch-up paint to coat the edges:


I scavenged some ECM connector pins and added them to the connector on back of the radio for the hookup. Finished product:

Got tuned on E85, my god the torque is insane. No launching, but acceleration in 2nd and 3rd is crazy. Pushing around 22-23 psi on the DOM 1.5xtr and 80% duty cycle on the cobb 1050x's. I'd say I'm pretty happy my tuner convinced me to go Flex. Still need to finish the tune on 91.
Shoutout to Cameron Dawes(camtuning).
