That’s what I was thinking too. I’ve always had it planned in the back of my mind.
I need to get my engine hoist from storage.
I pulled the TMIC and popped the fork, it does appear to be the TOB. Hard to confirm as there isn’t a whole lot to look at. But something is definitely going on. I suppose I should stop napping and start working again lol
Yeah, I honestly had very little intention of doing it, and certainly have enough other things that need to happen. But the overall feedback has been positive. Dom is pretty well respected among "the groups" lol.
My car rarely ever see's coolant temps over 200, even on hot days. So either the thermostat just stays open all the time or... it's super efficient :-D
Also below video(Which i'll be honest, I haven't watched until today lol)
Good news bad news.
Got the car back finally, Clutch is installed it's pretty nice - got 1k miles for break in and then I'll see how it really is.
I'll have to pull the motor myself anyways because there are some oil leaks that weren't mentioned or resolved (not sure why, and I can't even talk about it with out getting mad) at the wrist pin seal covers.
Ended up getting it installed a couple weeks ago. Only took about 20 mins.
So far I really like it, has a great hand feel, maybe even too much lol. For the first week I found myself inexplicably petting the steering wheel. :lol: I think I prefer round wheels as opposed to D wheels.
My Sparco 323 in the poop car was the most ideal steering wheel IMO.
I imported this to the UK in 2016, at 19200 miles. It's now on 53400, and a joy to drive, as long as there are bends! In Japan, it was registered and sold as a "330s", basically copying a UK uprated model of the time. That consisted of Cusco sway bars, a HKS mid pipe, and numerous STI options...

3rd time is the charm.
It has been quite a long time since I’ve actively been on here and have had any desire to really work or care about cars/car work.
I recently got rid of the rebuilt title 08 STi I had and picked up this 2011 sport tech mode from a military fellow. It’s been sitting in...

My first journal of my first STi, a 2011 (RIP) is here. Scargo's First Subaru: 2011 STi Ltd Sedan DGM
Many of the parts from it went into this, my current car, a low mileage '08.
Suspension modifications, chassis stiffening, etc...
