    Drove the Foz home on Tuesday after finally figuring out the misfire issue. Turns out the passenger intake AVCS solenoid was stuck :facepalm:. She's running amazing otherwise. It still has the previous tune on it with 99% of the mods still here. the only changes now are a 2.0, EWG, and a bigger + hardwired FP. Need to figure out a place to get it tuned as soon as I can. RS might be my choice since they're closer out, appointment wise, than JM.

    On another note, the car has finally been washed after almost 2 years. JBP looks as gorgeous as always in the Sun.

    I don't remember the brand, but it's an eBay STI intercooler. I snagged an AWIC set to replace it though.

    It's not too particularly heavy, but it is a bit thicker than OEM.

    It really hides the gaping hole in the bumper cover.

    Summer wheels are on, almost ready to fire it up for the season. Still need to install a new GS TMIC. Tune attempt #2 scheduled for mid-May!

    It’s the pink Pleiades badge. I assume an OEM part from a decade+ ago. Didn’t realize until now they’re not as available as the “i” badge!

    Ran another 8qt of OEM ATF through my trans today for a total of 16qt this past week. Also figured out the minor coolant leak wasn't actually a leak, and just dripping excess fluid cause I can't fill the system correctly apparently. All fixed now!

    It's all ready for the legendary Nuke tune on wed :)

    Bit of a double post... but did a quick little upgrade tonight. Wahlbro 255 -> AEM 340.

    Just need to hardwire it and install FuelPro and I'll be ready for an E85 (eventually).

    Just got the WRX back from JM last week! She's got a clean bill of health after a new timing belt and the usual front end goodies. Turned out my valve cover gaskets had a small leak that's all fixed too, now I'm going to have to get used the the car not smelling like burnt oil when I pull in the garage!

    They also installed the Black w/Blue Text Rally Armour mud flaps I've had sitting around my garage for like 3 years woot... Turns out kids are great but horrible for wrenching time.

    Put new spark plugs in at the same time, should be all set for another 30,000 miles!

    Salvaged the front lip after it got ripped off in our first snowfall last year. And put on the summers. At this point, it still feels a little too soon for the summers, but the car only comes out on weekends as I’ve acquired a work van that I bring home every night.:thumbup:
