Mocked up my exhaust manifold and tightened the slip joints. Threw the VF28 on there for fun. Also got my 06+ STi oil pan on with a Moroso pick-up tube. Why not take some pics







While I was replacing the copper crush washers for the turbo banjo bolts, I noticed that the oil feed had a screen. Reading that these have become so clogged up that they stop oil flow and "blow" turbos, I decided to pull the screen and take a look.

Since I uncovered the Brighton in preparation to finish assembly, the wet weather motivated me to seal up my leaking taillight. I did both just in case although only the passenger side was leaking.

new sealant




old sealant removed


new sealant on




sealing the fasteners


cut in half length wise

Thank you sir! Not too shabby, huh? It helps having a projector screen as a back drop

Why did you choose the vf28, any particular reason or just because you had it?

since interior work is a bitch on my legs, I switched up with some gas tank work. GD WRX fuel tank. The RS tank was pretty rotten. Had to convert the GD WRX tank to OBD1 to work correctly with my v5 JDM setup

RS fuel pump tray. IMO better than the GD tray.



WRX GD tray



GD WRX pump vs Walbro 255





in the assembly



the hole i drilled in the rollover valve. I reassembled the float with the spring unlike what the DIY thread says. Fills up like factory
