Default Ben's STi replacement

I'm Ben Holt in Nashville, TN. Formerly had an '04 WRB STi, and I've been a member for quite awhile. As you can see from the description, this is a WRX hybrid and I intend to finish the STi changeover...minus the AVCS. This car's great, but it'll be even better when I can drive it.

--Thanks to Innovative Tuning for the replacement map!

Sorry, still haven't had time to go out to my parents' house. It's hiding in my dad's shop at the moment till I get all the problems worked out. There are several pics on the original sales listing, BTW. It still looks the same.

As stated before, I'm hoping my Omori electronic boost gauge isn't f'd. Every time it gets power, it immediately tacks out to 25lbs...this is even before the car is started. The gauges were wired wrong, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is the problem. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to let me know.

Still haven't gotten pics up...I know.

Update -
* Working with Benchmark Tuning (formerly 555 Tuning) on an Internet tune. It's stupid fast now.
* Have new front hub setups from TIC to be installed...bearings on passenger side are poop.
* Still needing new suspension. Looking for new (or good used) coilovers. The ones on it are absolutely SHOT.

Thanks! That'd be awesome if I did...or if there was even one anywhere close to Nashville. I'm doing an Internet tune through Benchmark/555 Tuning with my Tactrix setup. It's working out pretty well. There's a buttload of logging involved, but it's worth it.

Got my new-ish coilovers on their way. Found a Tein Flex EDFC setup for cheap. Werd

My coilovers came in, and I'll be installing them asap. Downside is, I have to take the front knuckles totally off to get my new bearings and hubs put in.
