    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
