I didn't see this thread until recently, cool build!

I'll be mildly prepped for ESP this season and will make it out to a few Pros this season. Looking forward to meeting everybody.

Hey Greg, I'm just getting caught up on your thread. FWIW you know how little I drive my car (since I store it winters and rainy days) and the little light burnt out on my dash button last year. You're not alone!

Yeah for Subaru interior quality. A burnt out dash light on a very rarely used Cruise button 4 years and 21,xxx miles after the car was new.

Thanks......look forward to meeting as well. I don't believe a car is ever fully prepped anyways......there's always something else that could be done.

It's more of a by-product of the 2007 wiring harness and how the switch used to function with the 02 harness. The bulbs good it's just no longer powered when "on"

But yeah I can live without it.

Well....in that case don't be surprised if next time you're out there fooling with it the bulb turns up missing. Lol. Good luck with everything else

I'll have to correct that......

Well I'll be putting in some updates this weekend. I think I'm to the point where I have enough components to be able to assemble and drive it.

I don't have every single component I'd wish to have but enough to make it workable and drive around any short comings.......

I've been in San Diego for the past few days so no real progress the past week or so. Ya, it's a rough life.

Cheers

See, I always thought the engineers called it a double pole, while the people who actually do the work call it a double pull....

Can't wait to see the car run Greg!!!!

OK twist my arm





This is with 15mm spacers on the front. I took them off yesterday to get a better idea of clearence. I also have the rear lateral links pushed way out, so I have romm to bring the backs in as well.

In case anyones interested they're 18x10 rota grids. I got them from a nasioc member. You don't want to know how litle I paid for them. Right now I have 295/30/18 take offs from a solstice driver I gave $100 for, they have about 40 runs on them. I'll probably end up on 285/30/18. I'll see what it drives like first. It may be $benificial$ to buy solstice takeoffs. Solsty' barely wear tires.

On a side note. coming from STX, my 17x8 Enkeis w/dunlops were ~ 46lbs per. The Rotas w/r-comps are ~43 lbs per. So on weight gain.

Awesome, that's a lot of tire past the fender, LOL.

My current setup is 275/40-17 A6 on 17x8.5" SSRs and that weights 38.4lbs per corner. My 17x8 Enkies w/ RE-01Rs was ~44lbs per corner.

I put a deposit on 18x10 Rotas SVN Rs +30 offset. They might come in May. I didn't know that there were used 18x10s on the market.

What's the offset on those grids?

There were only 2 sets in the country at the time, I think. I bought 1 set. I got lucky. They are +35

There is alot less tire out of the fender since I removed the 15mm spacers. I still have the alignment to do and I think I'm going to be adding a bit of
- camber as they appear to be standing straight up at the moment. My hope is they'll be nicely tucked in. I hope to have to do very little fender modification.

A little update. I went for a 1.5 mile putt yesterday, I never even went into
3rd. Every little noise made me nervous and I'm glad nothing fell off.
Couple things to note:

My abs light is on. I don't know why yet. I didn't think I'd need to change tone rings or wheel speed sensors with the 2007 wrx abs motor so I'll have to figure it out. For the first time ever I tried a one man bleeder vacuum. Didn't work for me.....so I had my neighbor help out. Even after I went around them again I still have a soft pedal so I need to bleed again. I don't think the abs light would be on for that reason though.

The rear diff whines....alot under acceleration. I don't know if somethings borked, misaligned, or if it's just that way.

The car pulls very nice though. Until I get comfortable and confident that the car's not going to explode every time I take it somewhere I'm going to be nervous with it.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Greg

You didn't change gear ratios or anything, right? What about diff bushings that might transmit more NVH? If you're really nervous, drain the fluid and have a look for excess shavings.

Diff bushings, gear ratios are the same as before.

Thought it may be a by-product of it not being broken in...clutch style. IDK

Or I need to pull it apart and check backlash and pre-load, before I break something $$$$$

S00per d00per c00l! I'm sure that thing is going to be a hoot to drive once you get it all squared away. I'll enjoy watching your runs this year.

The ABS codes are quite easy to pull using the diagnostic connect under the dash. Should tell you exactly what the issue is.

I was having a hard time finding it. I have a complete 2007 wiring harness in the car if that makes a difference.

I'd hoped there'd be one, I'll look again.

The FSM procedures are different 2002, 2007. The former says use the data link wires, the latter says Subaru Select Monitor.

Thanks, though Dunk........I'm jealous of your car. Maybe someday when mine grows up.

This gives me another reason to stop by this saturday......If you have a dial indicator at the house, we can try to get a reading through the drain hole.

No dial indicator. I may pick one up though. I have 2 things to do today. Call Nukabe to ask them about the diff noise and their thoughts and order new bearings/shims from Subaru.

I'll take it back apart and go through the process to rule that out as an issue.


Oh yeah, I have a tune scheduled for March 27th.....woot. That makes me have to bust the diff apart, before then.
