Way to have the endlinks on hand too. I'm sure it's a lot more snappy now.
Oh yeah, the rear end is soooo tight right now. I broke the oem endlink by going over a crappy road. I just wish I had a LSD rear end. I might get one some day from a WRX.

I did this:


It retaines the stock torque box, adds the throttle body spacer, Injen intake, and the k&n Apollo filter system. Before, (even with the AccessPort tune), my low end torque wasnt that great. I saw myself mashing the throttle when at a light and it didnt give much until about 2500-3000rpm. I then added the oem torque box and did the whole ecu relearn thing. Now, Ive got more off the line powa and then Ive got the smoothness of the Injen and K&N filter at higher rpms. Im gonna datalog this setup to evaluate it.

That car is so clean. Like surgical clean. It's making me want a GD. Beautiful car, man.

Wow! We have very similar mods, although you've done a bit more. I'm still working on my intake; you've given me some great ideas. Excellent work on everything.

Ironically, my 05 is Obsidian Black. White is my other favorite for the GD.

Seafoamed the car today.



Steps:
1. Warm up the engine to operating temperature
2. While the engine is running, disconnect the PCV tube
3. Pour about 3/4th of the Seafoam in through the open end of the hose. (The engine kept dying when I tried to pour the Seafoam in myself so I had my dad rev the engine up to around 1500-2000rpm while the stuff got sucked in.)
4. Shut the engine off and let it soak in for about 5-10min
5. Pour the rest of the Seafoam in the gas tank
6. Start her up and drive around till all the smoke is gone.

This is the site that helped me install my STi gauges into my RS.

05 STi cluster into any Pre-05 WRX - i-Club

thanks for the seafoaming help. I'm gonna do this and I'm glad you did because you have a 05' so you become my resource! LOL

After the smoke is gone, did you change your oil or call it good? have you noticed any difference? I need to change my oil soon, so I'm gonna do that but I need to know if I should seafoam before or after I change my oil.

Also with your CAI.. did you notice any difference? I'm kind of curious about getting one, but I don't really know if its worth it.

I did the Seafoam yesterday afternoon and just drove around untill the smoke cleared. Then this morning drove the car on the freeway and had the A/C on and it seemed to have a more smooth passing ability as before. Usually with the A/C on the car seems to struggle.

I didnt put any Seafoam in the engine oil at all. When you put the foam in through the intake manifold (as I did), it just loosens up all the oil and carbon build up to be blown out when you drive after the 5-10 minute wait. You can put the seafoam in the engine for a cleaning, but your gonna want to change the oil afterwards. Remember to have the engine at operating temps before you do the seafoam so everything is nice and warm and loose for the seafoam to penetrate into.

As for the Injen CAI setup Im running: On our models with the MAF sensor being really picky and stubbourn, your gonna want to make either a hybrid setup or get the Cobb Accessport to combate the intake resonator issues (Helmholtz resonator). Heres a link that might help you more than I can: A Problem with CAI/SRIs and an Alternative (yes, finally)

P.S. Read the entire thread, theres some good information there.
