    Got a big order of random shit in with Oakos Automotive (here in SE Michigan). Valve buckets, turbo drain hose, up-pipe studs, 3-bolt gasket, donut midpipe gasket, etc.

    Unfortunately, they say it won't arrive from a Subaru distributor until at least NEXT Thursday. F*** shipping, I'm driving out there to pick it all up in person. That's got me sweating a little bit because the closing date on the sale of our (current) house was the 22nd. My wife was able to get it pushed out to the 29th, but we'll see...

    In other news, Keith at Pure Tuning (of Toledo, Ohio) got a hold of me and said my start up base map is ready. I just sent him the money via PayPal and should have the map soon. Sadly, the motherboard in my laptop shit the bed, so I need to find a friend that will help me download the map from my email to my Cobb AP V3.

    Other than that, everything is going fairly well. Stay tuned for more progress pics over the next couple days.

    I've got KSTech 19mm Phenolic Spacers on order to (hopefully) solve my clearance issue.



    In the meantime, I got the new turbo all dressed and fitted.

    Too bad it doesn't stay looking like that forever. Mine should stay at least decent looking, considering it shouldn't see too much street use, especially not in bad weather.

    That's the worst part of driving the car, getting everything dirty!

    Ummm....probably not. Or at least very, very, very rarely. I have always loved blasting down my neighborhood's unplowed streets while the rest of the county is shut down for a snow day. But in reality, the enjoyment is not worth the risks involved. Even the best driver can hit a curb in bad conditions and I've about had it with salt corrosion. Had I not done this build, I would maybe still drive it periodically in the winter. But now, my primary concern is longevity. I reeeeeally, want this car to be in good condition in 29 years when I turn it over to my son.

    I might actually sell my Blizzaks and put some suuuuuper sticky summer tires on that extra set of wheels.

    I agree as far as no snow goes, unless you move the fuck away from the carcinogenic salt states. @Grinder34 must have forgotten living down in the beautiful state of Texas.

    You want a set of Blizzaks, @Alin? I'll make you a great deal if you come pick them up.

    I missed snow so hard while i was there! I never (purposefully) drove like a maniac on snowy roads, but parking lots....lots of fun without paying for new tires!

    But corrosion sucks, yes. Big time.
