I don't use HANS but I do use a Simpson hybrid sport. All I have left to add safety wise is a fire suppression system... I might upgrade my seats to Circuit 2's next year (has more side head protection)
Back from paint and I am super happy how it turned out. They also sanded down areas where I chipped the bars with my harness belts over years. Going to let the paint cure for about 2 weeks then put clear bra over the bars that take abuse haha.
Sent my gauge cluster wiring to iWire so I can use a 2005 USDM STI gauge cluster. I wanted the RPMs in the center, shift beep/light and it will be nice to see if I'm doing over 120 MPH now haha.
Also going to try and hard wire my GoPro 7 Black so I can do a live stream of sessions at Daytona over my phone.
Dash will go back in this week along with the center net and window net... once I get the gauge wiring back from iWire I'm going to start getting everything mechanically checked. (oil change, trans fluid change, rear diff fluid change, brake fluid change, check on wheel bearings, axles, clutch, fly wheel etc)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
ID Vehicle: To simplify repairs/fixes/etc I'd love to know the cars history.
Main focus: handling, functionality, reliability.
End goal, yes the beaten horse "22b" exterior styling.
Technical Research (I'll post all my reading/research material links here)...
I've had the car since 2003, so I guess I'll start one of these. 3rd owner, got her from Subaru of Thousand Oaks. I really wanted a RBP RS, but when I needed to get a car I could only find this BDP one. Slowly started modding it, and by 2006 she blew her head gaskets and my brother, my sister's...
The story of this car starts in a galaxy far away and probably not interesting to anyone. It was born in Japan, sold in USA, been to Canada and later shipped to Russia. From there it traveled to Germany to hit the "green hell". It has been through many stages and transitions of identity crisis...
picked me up another chassis. $600 and it runs, mostly!
Still have the ej20g, gearbox, RobTune and iWire harness, stance coilovers (I had just bought to replace my godspeed crap) and lots of other parts... so here we go again!
From the ashes, she will rise!

Welcome to my Members' Journal. As with other Journals on this board, this will serve to document the buildup of my car, from the purchase in 2005 to the present.
More than just listing modifications, I will use this thread for discussion and to "think out loud." This will not only help me...
