Yeah my palm was very rosey with no satisfaction and with lube I think it would of been too much to handle.

Update,

Fixed the shifter and heres how I did it,
Removed the short nuby shifter and burned the rubber off it was easer than cutting it off.
Image
Does anyone have any marshmellows?
Then the piece on top I cut and welded it solid.
Image
Image
I had a short shifter for a Impreza and basicly copied it.

Looks good!

I think the only reason that separate piece was there was the minimize the NVH transmitted to the shifter knob.

It is but has a grill now and those pics are from Dec. when it was wrecked. The snow is finely gone, although it did snow on the 17th of may. That really late for us, but last few days it has been it the 70s.

Well this is just crapastic, front seal on my 5mt started leaking last week and I figured it shouldn't leak too bad till it slows down at work and all the tourist leave. I was wrong,it puked out most of the oil on my last delivery last shift. The good thing is now my car is undercoated, I just hate when my stuff has oil on it. Is it bad when you have this much oil leaking after only 70k on rebuild, I wander if they used oem seals?

Found the cause, bad pilot bearing. It chewed up the input shaft, oil soaked my clutch now all that needs to be replaced. Even with the clutch oil soaked it still held fine with no slipping. Might be the 2.5 pp with the extra clamping power that prevented slipping. One other thing I observed was in 75k (1 1/2 years) absolute no wear on the fly wheel surface or the pressure plate surface due to the Kevlar clutch disk.

I don't know much about kevlar friction material, but I do know that oil-soaked brake shoes, ones thoroughly cleaned with brake clean work as well as new.

Sweet rides! I'm looking to put a custom roof rack on my car and really like the simplicity of yours. Any advice on mounting etc...?

I used threaded metal inserts, basically you drill a hole to the size of the insert then there is a tool (which isn't very much) that crimps it on kinda like a rivet. It looks factory and you can remove the light bar easily.

Almost have it back together here a list I've done to it,

Trans refreshed (new bearings w/helical diff installed)
New exedy clutch KSB04 w/Kevlar disk
Replaced RF wheel bearing (I hate wheel bearings, 1 1/2 hours with the wrong tools)
Shifter bushings
Replaced a o-ring in the pressure side of my STI rack
Installed delta 220 cams
Timing belt and seals
White line 22mm front sway (CL find 50$)

I need to weld my exhaust bracket that come off the trans (4th time). Dose any one have that same problem with that bracket? I think it has to do with group N mounts and equal length headers.
Well need to get back out side and finish it, snow is on its way.

I drove mine around a little after everything was all together and hit a few corners and bent my sway bar mount on my a-arm. Now it's all reinforced and very solid,I will break the end link before I bend that mount again.

Next project is my wife's car the black one. I did it, I ran over a log in the road at 70mph and f**k it up. First blew one tire and bent the rim, and those tires were in good shape, I was going to run them for probably two more years. After stealing a tire off if my car I realized that the strut was bent, way too much negative camber so I max out the adjustment so it's not so bad. Then adjusted the toe so it would drive straight without having to fight it. After that measured the wheel base side to side and found that the right side is 1/2 inch shorter. Did more measurements and found the a- arm is bent.

So that's what I'm doing today replacing a-arm and struts and maybe a rear wheel bearing ( it been making noise for two years) since I hit the log I believe its worse, or maybe I'm more sensitive to all the sounds and vibes the cars making.

Snow is here!!! My car with the helical front diff and a vlsd in the rear is sweet and a blast to drive. One thing I noticed is the car is tire pressure sensitive, 2 psi difference in the front and the car will pull. I'm still trying to get the hang of having lots of grip. Going to work now, need to put more miles on.

Nice build thread. I've gotta check out your car some day. I'd like to make it down to Anchorage some time soon. If the weather would make up it's mind. I don't want to make the drive with the freezing rain BS we've had lately.

What helical front diff did you use? What trans are you running with currently?

Obx front diff in my stock n/a 5spd. The freezing rain kinda sucked, but fun to drive the roads at 3 am when nobody's on the roads. Any time your heading this way contact me will try to get together.

I've been wanting to pick up the OBX LSD. I have a 5speed from an SS that's going into my 2door project. I'd love to have LSDs on both ends. :)

I would love to have LSD in front and rear too. I'll have to research on those. How long have you had the OBX? Does it seem to be a good unit? Have you been harsh with it at all?

From my research OBX diff is not the best, but for the price I figured I would try it. Also I'm not running crazy HP to break it since I'm only n/a but I do push it hard and it is very fun. I've been rallying on it for a month now and still loving it.

Are you bone stock n/a? If so you're probably around 100-110whp?

They are definitely not high end, but I've heard they work, and with some little preventive measures, you can make them better.

Here's a link that I've been holding on to for when I get my own OBX LSD. It tells the weaknesses, and offers solutions.

No not stock, delta cams, EL headers, lighten front pulley, 17 lbs flywheel, ported heads, I will say its more responsive and quicker off the line than my wife's car which is stock. But have plans of building a high compression 2.5 in hopes of near 180-200 HP, and still getting better mpg. I have all the details worked out just haven't done it.
