Well, officially crapping myself today.

Trans arrived at Rallispec. Diff being built, tuned, then sent out to Rallispec to get mated to the trans once rebuilt with the long ratio gears.

What am I doing...

Yeah...I know it doesn't stop. Too many big plans for this car. Its been sitting as I work on my DD GC sedan. Need to start a journal on that soon.

Suspension may be going on this week...if I don't get lazy.

Here is the back half of the suspension going into the car. These are my favorite rear links to use as they are no fuss spherical OEM quality links.

I see you're running the GD Koyo aluminum radiator. Would you mind sharing what fan setup you have on that?

OEM 05 STi fans. Hard to beat their performance.

Re-aligned the car today, previous owner said it was aligned...yeah...no.

Right rear wheel had 2 degrees of positive camber.

Got everything right where I wanted it and ready to drive home, then heard a noise. Turns out, the wheels are now contacting the Feal coils.

Well, time to take these coilovers off and get new wheels...:/
