Engine compartment looks good, very sedate, but lethal.

Thanks! I'm going for a little bit of a "factory" look. When I'm driving down the street, my STi nearly looks stock.

Just finished installing the DW301... It was a huge pain compared to other cars when it comes to swapping fuel pumps. The DW pump doesn't fit well. I had to wedge it in there and slightly bend the lower base where it sits. I'm not too entirely comfortable with it, so I may pull it out and seat it differently.

So that's a PLX DM-100 and not just the DM-6, right? The DM-6 is just green, I believe. I've REALLY been wanting to buy three DM-100 gauges, all of their sensors, and have the USB data chain output to my carputer for logging.

Yes, it's the DM-100 and I have recently added the OBD module to read from the ECU. I do believe the DM-6 is multi-colored, but the screen is smaller and adds LED's and touch screen operation. I am tempted to swap out the DM-5 in my SHO for a DM-6.

Default Re: yamahaSHO - Equal Length Header Goodness!

Weather has been great and my Taurus SHO is back on the ground, so now to the STi.

Today, I installed the MSI Trailing Arms with TiC bushing and pulled two of my lateral links out. I need to go to Home Depot in the morning to get some pipe so I can pull out the old bushings and put the TiC bushings in. I was able to use my pulley puller to remove the stock bushing in the knuckle, but won't try that on the aluminum lateral links.

The bushings have been straight forward, but I've been lubing the eff out of them so they don't squeak. I wish I had taken apart my MSI ALK to do this as they are annoying to listen to. I will also be taking apart the end links to lub them as well as they make some noise.

Anyway, on to some pictures.

Default Re: yamahaSHO - MSI Trailing Arms and TiC bushings installed.

900ish miles of use and I found my KW squeak... After disassembly, I found that the strut does not return after compression. I'm REALLY hoping they send me two new rears after all the reading I've done on these coilovers for the Impreza. I was going for a simple street setup and these thing ride great, but something didn't feel right in the rear, accompanied by a squeak/squishy sound.

As you can see, they still look pretty much brand new:



I sent KW an e-mail, hopefully they're as good to work with as ETS as they have had the best customer service I have ever had.

They may just rebuild them for you.

Only one is currently bad. My fear is that the other rear will go in the same fashion due to all the issues other Impresa KW owners have had. These things are pretty much new, as can be seen by the picture.

I'm not sure about the twin tube, but doesn't that just mean it's run out of the high pressure nitrogen? Maybe a seal replacement and re-charge will fix that up (rebuild).
