Nice job on the DP and turbo.
Plus, that's a mighty fine looking chicken walking down your driveway!

Lol. I definitely live in the country. Had to chase them out of the garage about ten times today. They're a calamity...knocking stuff off the shelves and work areas. Hiding in boxes of rags...I'd complain to the neighbor but they're just too damn entertaining.

Had a calamity here in the city with a pair of ravens.

I'm a Sheet Metal Worker (local 8) foreman installing a ventilated soffit 13M (40ft) above the curtain wall of a 54 car showroom Mercedes dealership.
Every time I install vented soffit, there's a lot of bird poo stalagmites. Thought it was a flock of pigeons. Came in early last Saturday and a couple of massive ravens came out of my soffit. Found a nest started with #9 wire, branches and sage brush (good builders!). Cleaned it out.

So I blocked off the soffit after the shift with plywood to prevent them from nesting there, hoping they'd give up on the nest over the weekend.

I suppose I've become #1 ass^%$# to all ravens. They talk amongst themselves and can recognise faces the same as any chicken can.

A bad day for a bird watcher and rare birds all 'round Monday morn. Nothing left on site but scavenging crows and seagulls.

Pump came in today. Apparently I had ordered a less plug and play version. Took all of an hour to have it in and back on the ground. So nice to have the right part. Literally clipped in and was assembled in moments.



Trim ring could used replaced...not sure it was worth going after at this point but if I end up in there again I may consider it.

Q300 also went on...well, the Invidia portion did...PO made a midpipe that I'm pretty certain never fit this car but it was a good deal. I'll have a pipe made tomorrow. Also threw on some kartboy hangers.



Reflashed with Stage 2+ in the meantime and I'm deciding if I should do the injectors too or just the stumble kit for now.

...the weekend looks nice. Which is always promising!

^^ Nice!

Had a midpipe made and installed to complete my exhaust. Had some fun running with a wide open down pipe this morning but I'm glad to have it sound more civil.

weather in Norcal has been in a funk lately...didn't stop me from putting my summer's on. 245/40 Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Positions. Absolutely in love with the set, smooth ride, awesome grip, beast in the rain. Best set of tires I've been on (past experiences with HTR z3's and Ventus V12 evo 2's). I know tire stickers get some flack, but I personally love the look of em so I decided to get a set as well.

exterior set up is nearly 90% done, just on the fence on whether to get a splitter or not. with summer around the corner and the exterior pretty much done, I'm finally looking to start on some performance modifications. Planning on starting small for right now, probably looking to get sways/endlinks/lca's and getting a AP and getting a stage 1 protune at GST Motorsports or EQ Tuning by summer's end if all things go as planned. still really impressed by the power right now (first time subie owner coming from a Honda fit :3) so a stage 2 set up ain't in any plans soon until I can get more research done/get my suspension work done first before delving into more power.

here's how shes looking right now.

I run the S04's as well. Great tire! The Habkooks were stickier, I felt, but these are easily the. I best set I've owned as well. 255/35

I like the 1970's look with the white lettering. Works well with the black paint and black wheels.
