I will have some pictures up for you later boss man, ride is looking good! I have some ridiculous plans for my car hahaha...long story though. I almost got rid of it to be a "grown up" and here I am in love with this car much too strongly to let her go. Have about a 6000.00 suspension list that will be worked on soon. Running a c65 DW pump right now still stock fuel system otherwise and about to get a tune up at Forged Performance. In the end it will be a fully built (probably sleeved) stoker, cammed, head job, oversized double sprung valves, probably up the compression ratio to around 8.8 or 9:1 and it should be fun. Going to rotate after all (AMS 750r kit) and run some AMR equal length headers. I have about a 25 thousand dollar to do list and I'm hoping to have it all wrapped up within 18 months or so...hopefully not too much longer if it winds up taking more time. I'll definitely look at brining the car up to KY as I will also be taking a long (no car work) vacation up to Boston and will likely be stationed somewhere out west by then. It's been a while man, glad to see you tripped 17k miles (I'm at 30k) and stop driving in "I" mode John! Hey I should have some good pics up later...going to take some with a few buddies here in a bit down here in GA.

Oh come on guys... just trying to make this thing last for the long haul haha- I've been known to venture in to S and S# at least a few times a day
Gary- your build sounds intense, make sure to document it so I can steal some cool ideas!
Brian- lunch again soon. Can't get enough of that new ELH setup you came home from TopSpeed with so I might be requesting another ride along!

500g Flossy Knob (6sp Redhead Shorty) has arrived... It's so awesome and heavy- over 1lb!
The feel is great, and the coating doesn't get hot in the sun, so all around it was a great pick up.

17k miles? get driving lol. I'm almost at 27k miles now lol.

indeed there was a late winter storm in So Cal this past weekend. Some of my friends and I decided to take advantage of that:



Another storm is headed this way this weekend and they want to go up again haha.

Don't EL headers on a GR make it a unique sounding beast? I love how mine sounds. Perhaps that's why Subaru went with the quad exhaust instead of a single for the GR.

mckenzie: I would suggest another company than AMR for headers. I'm friends with one of the techs at COBB SoCal who is doing an AMR install (FMIC, turbo, headers, turboback) on a '10 GR and he told me it's been a headache. Poor quality bends, parts not fitting correctly, and flanges are poorly welded. Perhaps Tomei instead?

You must live in that thing to have already put 27K on it haha that's 2k miles a month!
Love that first picture of the three subies in the snow... just living out what they're meant to do- glad yours is doing well.

Default 8th Oil Change

17,850 miles- 8th oil change this morning.
No oil loss, and the techs said everything is still looking healthy! If this motor goes, it's not going to be from a lack of fresh oil in there haha I'm averaging about 2,100 - 2,800 miles between changes.

She also got a fresh wax and detail at home to get ready for spring:

Got a quote Friday from TopSpeed for:
Invidia Catted DP
GrimmSpeed EBC
1-step colder iridium plugs
1000cc TopFeed injectors (for future E85 tune)
Aeromotive 340LPH fuel pump
93 tune
Crawford AOS

The only piece I'm not 100% sold on are the larger injectors... I may do smaller injectors and just not go E85.

Will hit 20,000mi later today and all is good so far! I need tires in the next ~4,000 miles or so, but everything else is holding up well. Updates hopefully will be soon to follow.
