Hey man. Been a long time. :) I've got to get back out to the garage and do the next phase of work (more wiring) on my wagon. That fiber optic headliner looks amazing.

thanks man! really helped me stay sane during the lockdown. haha

Here's some more hoeing... and then I've got 2 questions.







Also I threw on the pink STi sticker.. don't know how i feel about it. You can hardly see it and I don' tknow if that makes it better or pointless.


1. I get this clunking from the rear brakes only at low speed and only when I'm switching from reverse to first (and then braking)
I've traced it down to the ebrake assembly.. its like its getting hung up and then it pops off the rotor when it changes direction? Anyone have insight on this? everything looks assembled properly, and was freshly lubed but it wiggles a lot. maybe just needs new springs? it isn't dragging.

and then question 2:
I've uppped the boost to about 13-14 but its still hesitating or blowing out.
I've got WRX coils and pfr-7b plugs. my feelers only go to .025 but its almost there. I can't imagine it being more than .028
what to check next?
