Installed pics? :banana:
Once the second polar vortex leaves wisconsin I will go outside and wrench. Tired of doing all these mods in -10 weather heh. However the hp gain from the cold weather is 4 wheel spinning fun!

This is rather annoying :-/ now the ypipe is too short that i got. Going to have to extend it with some metal tube. Also the bypass valve for the intercooler has a different od than the bypass tube it needs to connect to.

so many little things...

ej20k issues - YouTube


Sounds like it is coming from the front of the engine. I can't make sense of what is going on. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

here is a video - after the needles move to this position they stay there. - Jdm gauge cluster issues - YouTube
Fixed my needle issue. turns out they were in the wrong start position. I turned the car to the on position and manually moved them back to 0. Everything has checked out so far speed and rpm.

Need another rs gauge to verify 99-01.

Recently installed a wide band from PLX. (not sure how I feel about it yet)

More mods to come.

oh simple update.. guy with the 275 dollar seats bailed on me .. I purchased these 2005 sti seats with rails and everything for 400. I had to use my rs buckles with a simple modification. (cut a tab off so they could be mounted to the seat) I had to do this because the seat belt wouldn't lock in with the 2005 seat buckles.

Figured to post that information incase someone else went out and bought some seats. I'm awaiting on enduring solutions for my new daughter board so I can then have full tune capabilities. Means new injectors! :D Can't wait! http://www.enduringsolutions.com/Manual.pdf

Looks sick man. Other than getting the right "Y" pipe, any fitment problems? Great write up by the way
Had to cut and weld a plate on the tmic to get it to fit properly. Yeah there was a lot more work than just a y-pipe
