Pre-filter update: Yesterday I washed the car again so I could wax it. I went into the carwash excited to see if the Injen intake pre-filter would work and it worked like a charm! The SPT filter wasn't wet at all. So that's the update... it works. Drivetrain update: Today I got the 4.44 kaaz 1.5 way rear R160. Now I just need to crack the transmission open I bought on Ebay and see what's up with it while throwing a helical LSD in the front. Interior update: I also installed my 2009 WRX steering wheel and wired it into the stereo/car. I can do a writeup for a 2002 WRX, but most of it's relevant from this post. The main thing that's different is the "roll connector" is much different on the 2002 (I would assume up to the 06) so there was a bit different route I needed to take. This is actually a very temporary solution, my 2011 STi steering wheel comes this week, but I wanted to get the template down and everything wired up so it would be an easy swap. Also here's a shot of my car during the day and another after I waxed it.
