Lots of good progress within the last few weeks, here is what has been done:
- STI Brake lines and fuel lines
- Pedal assembly
- Wiring harness
- Dash swap (final placement)
Let's start with the STI brake lines and the ABS system. The main problems were by the brake booster, I had to bend the lines by hand to make them fit the RS firewall.
Next, the pedal assembly... since the STI pedal assembly won't fit the RS, I tried swapping just the STI pedals into the RS bracket, but here again no dice. The STI pedals have a different shape by the sensor which gave them a weird angle. I ended up using the complete RS pedal assembly, just added the clutch sensor and the STI pads to make it look nice.
For the gas pedal I used the adapter bracket from iWire. Works great!
Then, I starter messing with the wiring harness... almost gave me a headache
Finally, now that the wiring harness is in, I went back and gave the dash its final placement. I'm just using a screwdriver in place of the plastic inserts since they can be a pain to work with.
Now how's that fitment?
