^^ Thanks JWalker, I love your videos.

Heres something else I picked up from E bay very cheap. Its a mint condition WRX scoop and splitter (and it matches my hood). Im thinking of running an oil cooler up to that scoop but Im kinda digging my scoopless hood. Let me know what you guys think.




I also got this from an STi guy that didnt need it. Im gonna create a custom intake setup and put back together the Injen intake.

In the end I might just add this hi-flow cat >> MagnaFlow Universal Spun Catalytic Converters. I had one of those on my 89 Isuzu Impulse and it did its job well and still let the exhaust breath.
yea definitely, so happy school is done... even more happy that I am leaving tomorrow to go on a 5 day cruise I'll figure out a time probably the end of May or the beginning of June (sot sure when summer classes start -I'm not taking summer classes). I need to order the thick gaskets from grimmspeed and header wrap to make it worth while.... also want to check my brake pads...maybe ... also (lol so many also's) I am interested in this sea foam thing.

During the week I put a total of 4 coats of the paint on and it turned out very nice




I then jacked the car up and took a look at how everything fits on. I then decided that I was going to utilize the transmission exhaust hanger to help hold up the track pipe. The reason is because the next hanger doesnt come in until further back and I dont want anything swaying my headers around.



Im also going to buy this: Subaru O2 Extension Harness because the rear sensor is moved back about 18-20 inches from the stock location. With weather was pretty shitty as well: 88F with 100% Humidity I decided to call it a day.

OK, so first is first. I’ve been up since 5am working on my car. I got the track pipe on and made myself an O2 extension for the rear plug. Then the moment of truth came when I started the engine up. Well! In my opinion, it’s too loud. When at idle it sounds very nice but once you mash the throttle it gets raspy. I think this has alot to do with my cat back having no resonators. The fit was spot on but due to previous exhaust work, my cat back pipe is hitting underneath somewhere. I’m going to be putting the stock cats back on due to the track pipe begin too loud.

Below are some pictures and videos of me running the track pipe.
