Hopefully AMSOIL will help you out on this one.
Funny enough, I wanted to do straight water for increased cooling efficiency but after installing oil cooler and getting rid of the oem oil "cooler, " the load on my cooling system had gone down noticeably. So, no need. I'm back to Subaru blue.

Engine is stripped and being cleaned. No significant damage to cylinders, so a quick hone and new rings, and I should be good. Pistons will go out to SwainTech to get skirts re-coated. Rod (wrist) need honing and wrist pins need polishing.

Other than that, I have a full gasket kit and bearings ready to go...though I think I want to WPC bearings and rings, again.

Taking a break from the engine to work on other things. Replacing the last of the suspension bushings that haven't been done yet, and taking the opportunity to repaint ALL subframe/suspension components. Whiteline Anti-Lift showed up like this...sent it back but don't understand what's going on (spacer/shaft was rusted and marred up)...





I picked up a Perrin rear diff cover, since I'll have everything out, anyway.



Then, I'm working on re-wiring gauges--bought Molex and Deutsch connector kits.



I upgraded my dash cam (to BlackVue DR650GW Dual Channel) and added a GPS tracker.

And lastly, ordered my Air to Water setup, so that I can get the rear sheet metal work done, over the winter. Again, radiator is getting mounted in the rear bumper--going to flatten the trunk (spare tire tub go bye-bye).

Sucks about the ALK. I ended up going with the SuperPro DuroBall with caster+. Geoff from Cygnus recommended it, so I figured why not. Might be something to look into instead.

Swapping, so I'll see how the replacement looks. But yes, I'm starting to look at SuperPro over whiteline for some remaining parts.

eBay... Though, keep in mind you'll need the correct crimping tool(s).

Waiting for adjustable toe arms (SuperPro), lateral links (Atomic fab adjustable) and Lower Control Arms (haven't ordered yet). Put factory parts on to get everything mounted up. Also waiting for diff gasket to show... Probably could reuse but I'm not in a hurry so I'd rather replace.
