Nazareth, Subaru guys. Thought it was a AWD lame A** Subaru with no power and turbo lag. Good power and torque though, hurt it made 450/450.

Weighing the options right now on strategy. Go stroker build or used engine, LSD, clutch upgrade and synchros?
Either way I might be out of the game a couple months waiting for parts and machining.
The S550 platform is promising I hear. If you get a S197 plan for transmission failure. And alcohol. And random fits of rage at innocent folk.

shook my head at the focus, pretty sure it or me dropped something in the driveway and my other car picked up...or its just a coincidence that i recognize it


sure this looks as familiar to most of you as it does to me :)


Anyways, ive been wanting to get rid of the oem runflats for a while (they suck) so this was my excuse to order a set of winter tires (i had been using the stock all seasons for winter duty.)

Finally put the FMIC in, ran out of time before I got to the RMM but hopefully I can find time for that next week. Oh and I got so pissed off at the wonky bottom mounting bracket I forgot to take any pictures before I got everything all back together

You can pull the belly pan and reach it, or maybe the passenger headlight, or the front bumper underneath plastic section.

You guys are awesome, also now that I think about it I'm pretty sure I didn't plug the fog lights back in either. That's what I get for working on my car on company time...

He’s a poor picture of the back by the turbo. The block is split from the pan to about a inch from the head with a 3/4” wide gap. Hoping the turbo is ok. My priority today was to get the Dp down and look at the hot side wheel.

No I doubt weather was a factor.
