Had bronze wheels on my LGT and Gold on my DGM Hatch. This is my third white Subaru (started with a GC Sedan) and Iíve yet to have Gold on white. Lol





...Iím a bit concerned the Gold has a bit more orange than Iíd like but weíll see after I get the car back. Either way I have Gold v7 STi wheels for summer so Iíll have the right shade come spring.

Thanks man! After acquiring parts it made more sense to paint it all vs blending old paint. Sheís 25 years old next month...blending was too much to as of Subaru paint.

I am tempted to mess with him and tell him I plan to install a cheap sunroof at Ziebart or something. I had planned on driving this in the snow but if my STi doesnít sell thereís no point in subjecting this to salt instantly...

The vent may happen at some point. Lots in front of that at this point.

I had bought the car planning to go eg33 but after reading more it looks like the ez30d is a better bet for a DD...just deciding if itís worth the work vs an ej205 swap.

you could always throw some small boost at the ez30. 220 NA hp would be fun in such a feather wieght car. 5-6psi on top of that would be a rocket.

That does sound fun but if Iím going to go through putting turbo on an H6 Iíd be tempted to build up the eg33 and run standalone. Itís hacking up the car and rarity of sensors, etc that has me leaning away from the 3.3L. After you make the jump to standalone you might as well consider the 3.0R...or at least early models but weíve doubled the cost of the swap and it should still get internals to run much boost.

The ej205 sets me up for more growth (and the potential for a 207) but I was hoping to do an n/a build for the daily as Iíve just put too much into ej257ís these last few years.
