    So this arrived


    Swapped it on in place of the Garrett stock cover. Thankfully it fits straight on and isnt for one of the smaller compressor wheel versions HKS made


    Added benefit of being a bit smaller physically so heaps of manifold clearance

    Another updoot.

    So the rubber line under the car idea was just as annoying as replacing the hardline in the car, so



    Completely blocked. Cant even blow through it. Pulled the feed line from my sedan. Yes i made sure it wasnt also blocked. Can easily blow through it and flushed it with brake cleaner as well.

    Got back to this stage after a few hours work. Almost like ive done this a few times


    Not sure if i mentioned it earlier but my BG specific HKS Super Dragger muffler finally arrived. This cunt is huge



    Gave the tip a quick polish


    Amazingly it looks like it should bolt up to a stock 25D midpipe. Assumed a TT legacy pipe would be a bit larger

    Also cut up a stock 6 speed shift knob for the reverse lockout trim piece and glued it onto my HKS knob to hide the thread left to allow the reverse collar to slide up. I plasti dipped the silver part black for efame

    4 day weekend = things getting did

    First on the list was getting my shed sorted out. Lots of little jobs means tools and shit gets left all over the place when each little job is done. My shed ended up like a dump. Shit everywhere. Supercheap had a ripper sale of 2 350kg shelves for $130. Considering 1 shelf is $150 its a no brainer. So sorted out all my shit. All of it. Threw out all the useless shit ill never need. Like auto starters (why i have these is beyond me) and the 4 different crank pulleys. Filled 2 whole bins about 3 storage tubs of just junk. Results speak for itself



    Put my cool stuff on 1 shelf


    Back to cars and parts.

    Hub rings finally arrived from Japan. Had to get rays branded ones as I couldnt find any ebay ones for the life of me


    Managed to score a shifter surround with mint flocking in the glasses pocket for $9 at pick a part


    Chopped the ISO plugs out of the stereo adapter to make it 100x neater


    and put the dash back together for the 50th time


    Now the real meat and potatoes. 6 speed is out. What a cunt of a job. Such a big heavy cunt just makes everything hard to deal with. Anyway bellhousing off and packaged up to get shipped to Rising Sun Subaru for a speedo drive

    After rerouting all of the fusebox area loom so i could get the drivers kick panel on, finally connecting my steering rack to the column and putting the panel below the steering wheel on. I have this


    My column shroud has gone walkabout so need a new one of those. Working on getting an OEM ashtray delete pocket from the US and the shifter is obviously on the floor with the gearbox. Happy with the rest but.

    Also group n STi exhaust hangers cos why not and proper length pull type STi clutch line

    Still waiting on my bellhousing to come back so doing the million other odd jobs that need doing. Starting with a battery tray, which was removed from the wheel tub area by the previous owner. Not ideal but hey $500 gen 2 lol

    The solution:
    A Jaycar battery tray cut down to fit


    and some rivnuts. Job done


    The 3rd hole was also going to be used but i didnt realise how far into the frame rail the reo goes lmao. Will pull it out and cut it down a bit one day (probably wont)

    Also after being informed the alloy trim rings on momo airbags are removable from behind I bought a black ring airbag from Yahoo. Was hoping to get it air freighted as it has no charge but apparently the Post Office still doesn't like that. Understandably, so container freight and 6 weeks it is

    What do they do to fit a speedo gear into a 6mt? I was able to retrofit a gear into an 05 LGT trans without too much difficulty. Everything just dropped in.

    A few things. Drill a hole for the sensor, add the geared drive into the case, add the gear onto the front diff (my diff had to be machined to accept this gear as well)

    Got it back yesterday though

    Remember how a bought that black airbag from japan?

    >B4 comes into pick a part a week later

    Just my luck. Anyway headed on over and luckily no one had taken the airbag and the ring was in perfect condition. Pulled the airbag out and indeed the rings are screwed in. They sandwich the badge which is glued on


    While I was in the area I helped Joss get remove a gen 4 6 speed from a lucky pick a part score like mine as well. Also got a speedo drive



    When i eventually got home having some practice on the B4 wheel had no issues pulling the airbag from the 401 wheel


    and swapping over the ring. The difference is huge

    before


    after


    1000% better


    Then got under the car and put the bellhousing back on


    Wasnt the most fun doing it under the car but didnt want to pull the box out as its a pain to get out from under there

    Also put a new donut gasket on the dump pipe thing
