1600 miles and counting. I replaced the valvecover gaskets with oem ej25d ones. There are small but important differences between the ej20k and ej25d gaskets that I've never seen anyone mention. There are several "nubs" that have nowhere to go in the ej20k heads. I cut them off and haven't had any leaks.

Got my wideband and boost gauge installed, the car came with a Perrin Dual Gauge Pod - https://www.perrin.com/shop/interior-gauges/gauge-pod

I haven't gotten a retune, and the car is running stupid rich, but runs well enough. It's peak boost is 1 bar and AFR's are ~13.5:1 at idle and ~10:1 under full boost. I've been focusing on the RSTi for the last 2 months, so once that project is done, I'll haul the SS into the garage once again.

I really don't like the FMIC, it's pipes are in the way everywhere. Plus the dinky twinscroll td04 has to pressurize 10+ feet of piping every time you stab the throttle. It still spools stupid quick, but I'm after even better response. I have a full OEM awic setup that i've been sitting on for years, and I think this is the right car to install it on. So that's on the list before the retune.
