I want to find a cheap winter setup to have on tap for days like today. Even if we only get one or two a year...

usdm driver rails on the jdm slider/cusion will get you back to your stock height and you still get the tightness of the jdm bottom

Can't swap those on V7 seats. That's why so many go with the V8 seats. I tried swapping a whole USDM drivers seat base from an 02 WRX (only option), but the cushion is wider and a fundamentally different shape. That's why I went back to the JDM passenger base...

No... Unfortunately not. I would've gone with the V8, but the V7 are supposedly more snug, and I'm a small guy... The V8 are much easier to swap the base as you mentioned tho

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Shifter bushings installed!

So I finally got around to putting in my shifter bushings (TIC Holy Shift Set). These things are awesome. The shifter is much more precise and almost feels gated. I love it!

There is a little bit more transmission whine transmitted to the cabin (I really like it actually), but if you are listening to music you'll never tell the difference. Its not bad at all.


In other news, the valve cover gasket on the passenger side (near the turbo) is now leaking oil... Guess I'll have to change that out...

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Finally Tuned!

Friday evening I finally got my car tuned. I had been running a 3-port boost controller (came with the car) and it never dawned on me to get the car tuned for it until recently. Luckily I didnt have any over boosting issues, so the only real danger was running lean/knocking... but it seems i didnt have too much of that either. I lucked out.

And I did not know this, but even the stock STI will benefit from a Pro-Tune. The only mods (power-wise) that I have are the intake and the intake box with the snorkel. After finishing my tune (Gino at Turbo Time is amazing!) we uploaded the latest data log into VirtualDyno, and it estimated my power at 300 WHP/WTQ (roughly)! I am completely blown away by that! Car is so much smoother on power delivery and really pulls hard! The best part is the torque curve is very flat and has tons of usable powerband. Shouldve done this two years ago when I bought the car...

EDIT: VirtualDyno power estimation:

I need to play around with VirtualDyno to see what numbers I'm getting on other style dynos. 300AWHP on basically stage 1 seems pretty unrealistic... Also, the powerband doesnt look that smooth but that likely has more to do with the road than the actual engine output... It felt pretty smooth.

update on the wheels front. I think I've finally settled on the set that I want to buy. SSR GTV02 in 17x9 +45. I am planning on ordering them fairly soon and getting them powder coated gold Estimated delivery isn't until April or so.

let the drooling begin:

Well, got wounded today in a mostly empty parking lot. The driver backed into my parked car... lucky for me the driver was kind and honest enough to come find me and give me her insurance information...
