    I'll get them soon, maybe today. I had an issue last night. Hoping the motor didnt blow. haha... Seems like a fuel/air related problem. I do have a 5 speed, but for now, it will stay an auto.

    Thank you, sir! I'm not feeling the wingless bit, but I want something other then stock but having a problem finding something I like.

    Not sure what one you are referring to...? If its the switch under the driver window switches, then it should be the power lock switch.

    For another update... I did get the front 02 hooked up, but I now have another problem and that is that it doesnt want to run now. I can rev it and it rev's fine, but as soon as you pop it into gear, it says "NO!". lol... Not sure if the MAF, MAP, or maybe the fuel pump have an issue. I'll mess with it a little today. It went from really fun to almost needing to be towed home. I finally got it to drive under power with having the MAF unplugged. Still ran like crap.

    Thanks man! Took a while to get the glass. I was jealous about your deck lid for a long time, so now we are even.

    Here is the setup as of now... that I can remember.
    -TD04 turbo (WRX/Baja)
    -EJ255 exhaust manifold and cross pipe
    -EJ255 oil filter cooler
    -Custom catless up pipe with mild rotation
    -Custom 3 1/2 catless down pipe with mild rotation
    -Fuel regulator (forgot the brand)
    -Prov BOV (from my Pulsar GTIR)
    -Custom BOV adapter mount
    -Baja Forester XT intercooler
    -Modified 02-04 WRX intercooler pipping (cut to fit everything better and would also not fit the Baja XT intercooler)
    -Custom fitted intercooler pipping, including parts from Z32 300ZX turbo and Audi A4
    -Spector air filter and random air filter adapter
    -Generic intake pipe
    -Modified GC mid-pipe
    -Larger bell and extended pipe for Fujisubo muffler to open up exhaust and also clear diff skid plate
    -Oil pan modified with oil return drain (part was from a cooling pipe)
    -Oil feed line from EJ20H (secondary turbo)
    -Modified turbo cooling lines plumed into heater core lines
    -Relocated wiring on firewall
    -Relocated cruise dootle bobber to clear turbo
    -Modified AC line to clear turbo and intercooler
    -WRX fuel pump (original 25D pump just died this week)

    Thats all I can think of right now, but should be most of it. I did have the front o2 sensor extended and hooked up, but then a bunch of crap happened and shit broke. So un hooked it for now. It getting about 15 mpg, but part of it is having no o2's hooked up. It also eats oil a bit, but I think it's from the oil cooler so I'll address that soon.

    Other then that, it pretty fun! Even with the auto, but that being said, this car would be harder to drive without the auto. For some reason, the auto keeps it from stalling out at idle. I manually shift it about 90% of the time to keep the rpm's up. Sometimes I drive with it in 3rd, but will put it in drive on the freeway and it seems to do fine. I can tell the bottom end is not liking this new setup at all, so I might look for a EJ22 bottom end to mess with later before the other hybrid gets built. I was planing to have it dynoed this week, but I'll have to do it later since I have no time for it. Wanted to run it on a dyno before it breaks to see what it really puts down. haha

    Get yourself a piece of metal between that turbo and the intercooler mate, double especially do it since it has a silly plastic tank on it. You'd be surprised how bad heat soak around one of those things gets!! I remember after I singled the beast, I started getting clutch fade... The damn turbo was cooking my clutch fluid! And there was a good 30cm between the two! One tiny bit of weather board flashing bent up as a shield bolted to the clutch master later, never had another issue.

    It's on the list to do... I have so many little things to get done. The new motor I'm building will have a lot of different things going on, like the proper intake manifold. haha... But yeah, I'll get a head shield figured soon. Just too many other things to get done on the other cars right now. =/

    I have always been in love with this car, but the love has now gotten greater!
    Yes officer, I did hit a pedestrian, but instead of dwelling on that why not focus on how many I've missed?

    Soo... I'm about to start putting my 255/205 Hybrid together in the next week or so. Also sending it to a friends shop to have the wiring done since I have no desire to do it myself. Also found out the with the wiring, converting to manual is something I'll need to do... I know Most would do it anyway, but I kinda liked the idea of leaving it Auto.

    Also, if anyone finds a SYMS BD wing anywhere, let me know. I've been looking for one for a while now.

    Well, I havent been around for a while. lol

    White Lightning hasent done much in the last year and a half. With lot of personal family and life events, I just havent been around.

    As for updates? It has a massive oil leak, again. I havent had it licensed for driving for that reason. I'm looking for a new wing for the deck lid and trying to decide what I want to do for a motor since it seems the turbo 25D may have lost a HG. I'll being working on it here again soon, but I've just been working and working on other projects and hobby's.

    I do have some pics, but they are on my phone and newer laptop and I havent setup anything new for photo hosting. I'll get something posted eventually. lol.

    Sometimes cars have to be put on hold, glad to hear it's still around. Try Flickr, it used to be a bustling community for photographers... community is mostly dead, but it's still a decent host.

    Welcome back. How are you doing? I’ve started back on here after I said I was going to start up a year and a half ago.

    Nothing much new... Still has the oil leak and to add to that you can hear the rod bearings are not happy, but that was expected.

    The E-Tune II skirts have been sold. Have Brad's old Hipo-sleeks going on as soon as I paint them.

    I have a 22E short block on a stand and an extra set of 25D heads ready to go on. Might work on doing a front mount to de-tune it a bit more drivable. No longer planning a hybrid 205. If I swap it, it will just be a 205 auto bug eye for the simplicity, cost, and reliability.

    It's literally been sitting with weeds growing through the wheels for the last year. Just no motivation for it.

    Anyway, theirs your current update. Lol. I'm going to be deleting the oil cooler to see our that kills the oil leak so I can drive it till it tosses a rod. Haha

    Lol.. I'm allow at responding these days.

    That said, I think I figured out a fix for my oil leak and talked to a friend that wants to take it for a shoot when I have it back on the road. So might have I on the road sooner them later.

    Hi: Just bought a 99 legacy gt limited. Will be looking over your thread again to see what I might want to copy. Did not know a bugeye hood would fit. Did you have to modify it a lot?
    More updates when you have time; we need to revive the forums and say bye to FB
