The ZeroSports sounds amaaaazing. Now I get to be jealous of another swap that he's built..

Small update:
Coolant leak is still non-existent after driving around almost all day yesterday. Awesome.

Airbag light is now off as well. I forgot to click in the secondary lock (green tab) on the driver side footwell plug.

Only thing still going on is burnt oil smell after driving for awhile. The car does not puff white smoke anymore from the up-pipe/downpipe area which is good. But it definitely still smells.

Still hoping it's just residue in the PCV/intake system from flipping the motor. I haven't been able to give it a good drive due to the crap gas in the tank I mixed with 91 + octane booster. Also running the JDM ecu so even with a new tank of gas I think I need a bit of an octane boost in general to give it anything real.

Scheduling a tune the first week of January though so should be able to have a lil fun after that. The motor is so smooth. Can't wait to really "drive" it.

It'll smell for a week or so, honestly it'll probably smeel until it gets tuned and gets hot enough to burn everything off. Even oils from your skin will sit in the metal until it can fully burn off, as long as it's not pissing oil out anywhere you should be set. Looks like everything came together well!

Yeah that's what I'm hoping for sure.

Have a tune scheduled with Mike over at GST this coming Thursday. Can't wait to be able to drive this thing normally. I had originally planned to take the car up to Travis at Snail Performance, but with work and life being a bit crazy, it's next to impossible to make the time to drive up there. Both amazing tuners so at least both are around. Could definitely be worse.

Installed the stock STi front sway bar finally since the brackets came in from Subaru today. Wow what a difference. It handled surprisingly good without it, it handles much better now.

Also dove into mounting/adhering the top wing mounts tonight. Can't wait to get that on tomorrow, despite it adding yet another shade of silver to the car. I think I'm at 4 different whites and 3 different silvers. If only paint were cheap...

You don't happen to have a part # for the wing mounts do you?
