So I scored an outback intake. It almost hooked right up besides the idle control.
Here is the old
This made my car sooo much better. It doesn't bog down like it did before and is much happier at high speed. I recommend this to all 1.8L users, though grab an extra maf in case it goes bad. I have about 10 of them.
You can also see my homemade intake mount on the bottom left that came out great. Shaped out of aluminum and drilled for perfect height. Not too stiff and light as can be.

So my ebrake handle turned out great. I bought this aftermarket one off of some dude on NASIOC without screws. First I hit up home depo for some screws that would fit, then I went to the junkyard and scored a black shift boot out of a BMW 7 series. Went home and hit the boot with some leather treatment and slid it on. It came out fantastic.
So my buddy gave me an RS hood. It is pretty beat up and has been spray bombed black but I should be able to fix that. I installed some hood pins on it because for some reason I can't get my damn latch to fully engage so the hood sits up about 1/4 an inch. So the hood pins are functional but I actually think they look better than I thought they would.
They are aluminum and were actually alot harder to install than it should have been. Partially because I was being a dumbass.
So i bought these excellent pedals from JDMGary. I always wanted some nice pedal covers but I didn't wanna cheap out and go Autozone style. Thankfully I was able to snag these up before anyone else. Need to figure out the dead pedal because the bracket is for a RHD car. THANKS GARY!
Got some new mats yesterday as well. They are awesome. Not really a fan of the STI emblem on them but the red trim is sweet and they fit better than I expect. They are for 02 WRX, but the fit well enough. The main reason I bought them is that there is velcro on all four sides. NO MORE MATS SLIDING UNDER MY GAS PEDAL! WOOOOOOOOT!
Now I just need to dye my carpet black so it matches. Hopefully when it gets warmer I should be able to handle that.
I also installed this steering wheel a while ago which I got from JDMGary. The airbag connector was different so I had to work my magic and splice over the existing one. I know I know, don't mess around with the airbag, but as long as you are careful and do it right then there won't be any issues.
