2007 WRX Wagon UGM
lulz I don't remember posting that.
Thanks dude.non-turbo cars like yours aren't uncool...
*bumping your ish*
I'm supposed to tell you that I can't be your friend anymore, as you are a bad influence on me.See you in the back row, or behind the school for a smoke & a 40 !
Cool man. I drive a lot for work so it doesn't really seem that far. I'll be driving it to Colorado some day to see some buddies and hit the slopes. Good luck with the build, I'll look forward to seeing your progress.Subscribed, we're headin in the same direction, too bad you're so far away or I'd say let's take em for a spin when we're both done.
Thanks man, I appreciate it. Some of what might be perceived as info is my gut instinct drooling out. But I have also done a lot of homework, if there's anything you would like explanation for.wow great work so far! In for the info!
Keep your head up man, once this thing is done and back on the road you'll probably look back and laugh at all the mishaps along the way.
Fuck yeah gents. Thanks. I always knew this was the case, but I was curious as to how much I could put up with including my overly time consuming job.i wish you the best of luck in doing so.
At some point, when she's all back together & running again, this will be the
memory of struggle which makes the victory all the sweeter !
Didn't mean to go all Braveheart, peptalk, climax of the war movie... but it sure did come out that way now that I go back and read it.Give 'em hell Jonny
Want to go back and clarify, cause I didn't mean to sound like a dick. I was in that pissy mood i spoke of in the last update. I dig turbo swaps for one reason, and one reason alone: because I see the joy they bring the guys and gals who have poured the time, effort and cash into them. I have only seen it first hand once, with Buurmas bad ass hot rod, but have read a lot about them.Thanks dude.
I'm a naturally aspirated guy, but it seems like most here are converting. Or they say they are. Or they are mysteriously a fucking swap guru because they have read every thread in here about it and tell folks how much easier and cheaper it is.
^thisI'm just not a turbo guy, that's all. And a lot of the "fuck the NA build" shit I read seems insulting. It's "easier" and "cheaper" for some. It's more enjoyable for others. I get that. But I hate reading bullshit when people have asked about making improvements to a naturally aspirated powerplant about how it's "not worth it" and how a swap is the ONLY way to enjoy the car.
Thank you sir. Appreciate the kind words.excelent work sir. looks great so far
That sounds like a great idea. Wonder if there is anything raw in there that should be coated after for rust proofing sake. I'll definitely give it a shot on my old and already leaking unit.denatured alcohol will take whatever out of the PS pump you had in there. water, oil, pump fluid.
also..i just learned from wondy...that our PS pumps don't use PS fluid. they use Dexron atf..
Learned that one when carrying gallons of it for the Brighton. Leaked like a stuck pig until I put a half bottle of Lucas in it.Yeah, it's misleading to call it power steering fluid, it's essentially hydraulic fluid.
