I didn't really think about how much I have replaced on my car until I tried to organize it and get it up off the floor. Keep in mind that this doesn't include the factory wheels out in the garage or the airbox equipment that was replaced. Luckily this room is in the basement and away from normal foot traffic. Otherwise I'd be nervous my wife would see it and start questioning how much I've spent on this thing...

Default Quickjack Oil Change & Turn Signal Mod

Picked up a quick jack a few weeks back and finally got around to using it today for an oil change.

Impression:
Quickjack=awesome.

I doubt I'll ever get a real lift, but after using this today, I think this is an amazing compromise.



While I was letting the oil drain out of the pan, I decided to try something I picked up when I had my little M roadster: taking the amber turn signals out and lightly hitting them with a gray spray paint. Gets rid of the orange look of the bulb from the outside, but if you spray lightly, it still lights up orange when illuminated.

Before/After Creation:

I bought one of the quick jacks last November. Works great.

Default Some Cusco Goodies!

Ordered some Cusco goods and installed them last night. That quick jack is still awesome!

Got a used Subaru banner and hung it up in the garage as well. Got a few cabinets and another workbench from Sam's Club. Can never have enough space to set stuff on.



Picture of the front power brace crossmember and the side power braces:






Cusco pieces are much nicer than the factory ones. I do think I can feel a difference, but it could just be in my head. It definitely feels better around corners when I took it out for a spirited drive last night.

Trying to come up with a reason not to get a new turbo for the car. The only reason I can come up with is that the bottom end could blow up. Not sure that's a good enough reason not to get one...

Why not just get a built motor and bigger turbo. Problem solved. No worry, more power.

Didn't do the built motor but doing a 20g turbo. Here's hoping to a good tune and a light foot...
