Who are you gonna have tune her?
Any idea what that bracket in the trans is for?
Let me know if you need any welding/fabrication done on that exhaust. Or anything else, really.

My tuner is just on the other side of the bridge in Gig Harbor.

The bracket had something to do with the reverse lock, I think it must be the bracket that stops you from going from a forward gear to reverse with out swiping neutral first.

I have a welder but my skills are eh... You're more than welcome to come show me some tricks!


So an update, I'm pretty sure that this last cold snap killed just about every battery I own. After about 85 miles the car started to crank super slow, but it wasn't consistent. It started to get pretty bad then finally i swap out the starter, decided to check the voltage and my optima was at 11.2v which sucks because the car was running maybe 8 hours ago. Charging system is great, it's at a good 14.65v

So i swap that battery out with another that read 12.2 and it had 1 slow crank then fired up. BUT I have to put that on the charger as well because it was low the next morning.

found 3 vacuum leaks, 2 of them are fixed and the 3rd is a leaky FPR, i also think that's toast from hooking the fuel lines up backwards accidentally.

She's pulling too much fuel so I cant drive it too much just yet but the 100 mile break in is done.

Now the EWG was a whole other nightmare...

No matter how many configurations I tried there was no way I would be able to just install and go.

The uppipe is so big it was resting on the cross member and separating the lower uppipe flange. I had to cut some flat stock pieces and drill holes in it to lift the engine up off the xmember. I'm going to cut the elbow and clock it different ways when I get time.

Couldn't u weld in a 2" flex piece in the uppipe to get the angle your after? I had to do in once long time ago, on a different car but worked out alright. (If your uppipe is 2" that is)

I could use flex, but it's before the o2 sensor and I would like to make sure there isn't any chance of a leak before it.

Actually that seems really dumb now that I think about it. I'm basically creating an exhaust leak under boost.....

I'm confused now....isn't your O2 sensor in the header, before the up pipe? What exhaust leak under boost? Is the WG itself hitting the rail? That what u mean by clocking it?

I knew this was going to come up and I just posted something on face book about this 10 minutes ago. My "upstream" o2 is in the downpipe just like it is stock on a 1st gen turbo subaru.

And yes, the wastegate itself was pinned between the frame rail and the down pipe so that wouldn't work. Actually you couldn't even bolt anything up.

Went out last night to do some tuning. Everything went well except after about 5500 rpms I was pulling in air from an un-metered source. Found my culprits and will address them this weekend.

Car runs well other than that, engine is super smooth. Not sure how I feel about the ewg though, it's already annoying.

Picking up a 2004 WRX wagon this weekend to do something similar to this! Was hoping that I could get some input and wisdom from you once I get started CJ.
