More of the same.
Took the center stack out again to clean up and re-run some wires and finalize the DCCDPro install. While in there I tapped into the radio harness for gauge power and illumination.


The DCCDPro, switches and indicators seem to be working as they should. Now I wait for the transmission rebuild to be completed.

are you getting a not full power situation to your gauges at all? i too used the radio harness to power my aem gauges, and every now and then, the center gauge is like half as bright as the other two.

Not much new. Just picked up the type RA DCCD transmission from getting torn down, inspected and rebuilt/sealed.



In addition to having it refreshed and inspected, a Ver.5-6 STI helical front diff was swapped in place of the original open front differential.

Iíll work on degreasing the case some more and getting it ready for install in the spring. Itís going to be really hard to wait. Iím really looking forward to seeing how it performs with three new differentials in it!

On a negative note, when I got home with the trans, the Baja was pouring gear oil all over the driveway. Looks like an axle seal blew out Just canít win sometimes.

Too cold to work on cars.

But more parts keep trickling in for spring installation.




Mocal oil cooler stuff. Hopefully I can squeeze it all in there with minimal effort!

I know it's a PIA, but you're really going to want that IAT sensor in the intake manifold somewhere...Runner or plenum. My 20K didn't have a great spot in the plenum, so I ended up drilling and tapping one of the runners.

Keep it up though man! I love this car.

Bummer, I was afraid of that. I was hoping post intercooler would be sufficient enough. I didnít want to put a hole in the manifold unless I had to. Itís so perfect and blemish free!

on the back of almost all the usdm mani's ive seen, there is a blank spot on either the driver's side runner by the brake booster port, and then another on the pass side where the small port for the fpr ties into. neither.. of which i see in looking in the pics of the back side of your mani. however, the bolt hole that is just down a little to the side of the iacv..can you use that for the drillytappy instead of whatever bolts there?

A little late to the party, but I like the sweep on the gauges and configuration of them above the headunit.

In fact, my EJ20G intake mani already had a 1/8" NPT hole in it with a bolt/plug. I just pulled that out, screwed the sensor in, done. The 20K on the other-hand was not so easy. Really not a great spot for it where you can also reach it to plug it in.
