If replacing the radiator hose, replace the corbin clamps with the standard radiator worm driven ones. The hoses leaked and have found others having this same problem with silicone hoses. I've never had one leak before when I used Samco hoses on past projects, but also my hose clamps were not Corbin clamps like they are on the STI.





I didn't remove the old clamps as I didn't feel like going through the entire process of draining/refilling/burping the cooling system all over again. It can wait for the next drain and flush.

I just got home after a duty day on the ship and found my Password JDM Gurney flap at my door. So I proceeded to install it right away!

New progress. Killer b motorsport NPT oil gallery plug connected to a 10 bar pressure sensor by Synapse Engineering. I can't wait for the final outcome of my little meter project.

Going with AVO 50mm solid front endlinks. Removing my kartboys. Too bad they are stock length as my ride is lowered. I need to remove the pre-tension from the sway bars.

What ended up being the deciding factor to switch over?

The Kartboy endlinks are designed for stock height cars. They are too long for the ride height that I want. I've already broken the bushings and the front suspension ended up making a clunking noise. The Kartboys were great when I was stock height.
