I forgot you've never seen the SS. It's pretty fun, especially with a working transmission lol

Oh man I bet! If you're ever up in the Everett/snohomish/lake Stevens area and have some spare time let me know! I'd love to check this thing out in person, it'd give me some inspiration to start tearing apart my sedan lol. Currently just waiting for an ecu and I'll have just about everything to put her together!

Now you just need to buy my speedlines from me. They're a little rashed from the wreck but what white and gold.

Any time Tony, it runs real nice now that I have the GFB EBC installed. I have it set to around 14.5 psi, tho I have cranked it up to 18 for shits and giggles.

I got two more ej20g ecuecu's:

The top one is an early STi ecu "SB" with a factory chip, 2nd one is from a post facelift RHD legacy turbo. It'll need a chip socket added. Both ecus are pretty much identical, and the 16-bit Legacy ecu allows for an aftermarket chip.

This is a prefacelift legacy ej20g ecu, it is 8-bit and will not work with robtune or anything.

If you have one of these, it is 100% interchangeable with a 16bit ej20g ecu. People on RSliberty club and DirtyOlBC say the 16 bit ecu's run their cars more smoothly, so theres no reason not to swap.

Teacher said I did alright for a first timer, and I had so much fun that I'm going to save up for their 3 day school.

Yeah, I really enjoyed the full day. By the end I wanted more time to practice and hone the skills I learned. I think after the full day you can schedule 'ad-hoc' days to just drive and practice.

I thought about the 2 or 3 day class, but I'm not likely going to start rallying so felt the ad-hoc days were a better option.

My friend Beatersubi welded a 90* elbow onto my VF23. Sure, I could have gone with a silicone 90* instead, but this will never, ever collapse under boost like some silicone ones do lol.

Image
Compared to the factory TD05, it is a little bit smaller. But the significantly faster spool is worth it! Nearly td04 spool speed!


Image
One thing I am very happy about is beatersubi's coolant tank he made around the same time. It bolts into the stock location, uses the factory hoses and clears a tmic. Previously, my factory coolant tank was just "hanging" in there, lol.


The ESL was installed and tuned this weekend. Due to a bad wideband sensor, we weren't able to do a full tune. It is nice to have the ECU controlling boost again. Alphius picked up the software PDQ, and I'll head back down when our schedules allow.


Also, my alternator is giving up the ghost. At idle, it outputs 12.5V, and while giving it some throttle it bumps up to the low 13's. It's causing wierd issues (such as codes for TPS and O2 sensor, out of the blue), and not allowing the battery to get a good charge.

Got a reman alternator and will install tonite.
