I'm so far into this thing I can't sell it, much less trade. I'd feel like I'm starting over

The power steering pump has a pretty loud whine on startup in <40 degree weather, but otherwise it's pretty good. I don't think it's shuddered at all. I wonder if this rack will finally kill the pump off...

After three months of this:



I did the head gaskets, put a new radiator in, and a few other goodies:



Fortune Auto Fortune 500 coilovers!





I anti seized the snot out of them.



Now Toaster runs!





And now set at a good ride height:

Thanks! Your FXT's definitely coming along too!

And those TE37's will go back on once my wife burns through these tires

No, no. You give them to me

May I ask what the front conversion ran you? did you repaint it all too?

Haha, I don't think they'd quite match your rally style anyway

Because there is no black Forester STI in Japan, I got everything new and repainted it.

Saturday I had some spare time, so I poked around Toaster a bit more:













And Toaster now has the honor of being the first car that I've installed all the parts I had on!

Need info on the Steering Wheel Swap!

Being that your Fox is an 05, was the OEM Steering wheel charge a single plug/stage?

Did you just swap the charge onto the STi Center Section?

Did you need to re-wire the STi Cruise Stalk?

The steering wheel was a single charge, but I was able to swap the charges with the dual charge STi wheel. But since mine is an 05, the cruise stalk is directly plug and play.
