got about 700 miles on the break in. did the first oil change. Pretty glittery, had to email the shop to make sure that was normal.
Been doing some work on her.

Took out the rear deck, the giant holes were looking ugly with no speakers.


Doesn't look the greatest, maybe a sand and paint will change my mind.

made a simple bracket for the extinguisher. i'm digging it. Pretty sturdy


went to upullit last week and picked up a few things
goodbye crusty shift knob



TRYING to make a rear "firewall" panel, but i'm not liking how its turning out.
i'm going to have to make another one, this will be a ruff draft.

Less than 80 miles left of break-in. Cannot wait to see what power she makes!!!

also needing to do some brake mods/upgrades.

i found this Subaru Impreza 2.5RS - Best Inexpensive Brake Upgrade
Has anyone done this or something similar? my brake pedal feels terrible and i want better stopping power.

Did the grounding "mod" my idle was super low and caused everything to vibrate like crazy. Added some ground points that lead back to the battery and now she idles like normal. The AF learning on the AP is more active i noticed after doing that.

*will be slicing and crimping longer wires to put the FPR into the trunk. I should of done that to begin with.
*got fluids for diff/trans flush and refill
*The hood is uneven when its closed. Driver side sticks up a good 3/4". Cannot figure out why, it didn't used to do this. Gonna take off the alternator cover and disconnect the hood struts.
