Been doing maintenance and other things on the engine while I wait for parts....might as well while I have it on the stand.
-I got my alternator tensioner so I can confirm it works for the 27" belt I have...then I cut up the bracket a little.
-Was sent a slightly damaged wrx alternator....but it ended up being an STi, 90 amp one...Win?
-Also made an attempt at an alternator cover...not sure if I want to run with or without a cover though:
Here's maintenance I did over the weekend:
-complete valve cover job
-replaced rusty oil cooler hardline
-Grabbed a few extras too....upgrading is too easy sometimes....Stock y-pipe is dumb so I went silicone, and why buy a stock old DP?
-This one has no shields and is already ceramic coated.
-Sprayed and test fit this thing into my car for the boost solenoid and those sensors:
...and here's just a random shot of the engine so far. The guy is sending me a new intake mani and wiring harness because that crank sensor is all messed up....so I should probably do TGV deletes while its apart.
