What have you done to your car today?

Recommended Posts

Lost the windshield washer cover on the STI a wee while ago, found a part number online for a replacement, but wasn't sure whether it'd come unpainted, or painted. Received it today, and thankfully it's painted, and even the correct colour!

 

The car goes in for paint in a few weeks, a brand new front bumper going on, a few scratches/dents repaired, and some paint fade being sorted.

Replaced boot struts on the 95 SVX with second hand ones; gave them a clean repaint.  Will send the old pair off for refurb/gas and swap out when they come back. Good quick job.

Well, the engine is back in my Type RA. Sort of. 

 

All in all, that turbo looks reaaaal at home. excuse the mess that is the engine bay. Should maybe have it running next weekend. We'll see how motivated I am haha.

It'll need to come out again as the darn clutch didn't line up properly, and when I went to pull the engine back out to fix it, the hoist decided today was the day it blew it's seals.

Booked the Forester in for a Dyno tune.

Will be interesting to see what I get out of a completely stock car.

Saturday, Well, engine came back out! Fixed the misaligned clutch.

Put the oil drain on, with heat shielding.
Deleted the GDB clutch bleed setup in favour of single braided line. Got that around the wrong way. Fixed that.

Engine in, wastegates off to check spring pressures. Now both have 7psi springs. Flumbled around trying to figure out how to get it all to fit in there.

Turns out, turbo on first, then engine in, then downpipe, then wastegate dump pipe on wastegate, then wastegates in place.

She's a little tooooight

Also fiddled with fuel lines. Plumbed the -8 AN lines to the stock body for the time being.

Then today! Get under the car to install exhaust manifold on engine. Promptly get it half on, drop it on my face, break my nose.

Mint.

Hospital check because recently had surgery on my nose and would rather sort that now lol.

Reattempt getting manifold on without breaking nose again, am successful. Yuss.

Replace the fittings in the wastegates, because old and cruddy. Cut heat shielding to size for boost lines. Run vac lines for wastegates. #goodenuff
