It was fast at pissing me off, when I saw all the energy drink spilling onto irreplacably rare seats.

Yeah, agree. 250,000 miles is the magic number for the teardown.

I did drive my Type-RA wannabe today though, turbo was not missing in that as I passed everything.

After being held in captivity for far too long, the Bluebird has been released and is flying around lately.

Installed recently: v4 STi struts w/ eibachs, 17 mil rear sway, rugged mounts and urethane bushings, Audi A4 alloy endlinks, STi alloy lat links, and Speedline/Prodrive P7 wheels.

On a totally unrelated note, happy Mother's Day. Make sure you give your Moms a thanks for squeezing you out of her va jay jay and raising you up to be a GC nerd.

Figured this thread needed an update.

I started going through the old suspension components and refreshing with new this winter. Here are some of the pictures through it:







I realized that this Tanabe Sustec brace will actually fit under the Impreza fine,
and clears the exhaust I have on it (no need for turbo xmember), so I installed that too:





Next up I'll be ordering the transverse links for the alloy lca's, installing that stuff then an alignment this spring. I'm getting vanity antique plates for bluebird this year, and am considering different ideas. Most are taken, but V1-1993 is still available, so that may be the one.
