Love everything about this vehicle...except the spun bearing - that sucks. Is the pretty piece behind your battery the washer reservoir? Where'd you get that?
that was a part from WeapnR on ebay i think, take note that the coolant overflow is ineffective because it enters the top of the reservoir... i got rid of it a while ago and am now using a JDM in fender tank.

Wagon is way cool.
How's the 1320 header? Look to be decent from pics online. Price seem more than fair if they don't crack right away.
honestly the header is super nice, the welds seem really nice. will report back with any issues in the future if there are any.

Here is the engine bay right now, i'm not completely happy with it, but it will do for now..

Vehicle Car Hood Automotive lighting Motor vehicle


The booty. i removed all the stickers and added this cool Oem 22b Quick steering decal.

So much win.
We're you able to just bolt up your dbw to the na intake? Or was there some fab involved.
Keep up the good work.
It didn't bolt up easily, no.. well not in the orientation needed to clear Stock location turbos.

if you're rotated i believe it would fit in the normal rotation, i had to however rotate the throttle body 90 degrees and shave some off of the coolant passages and off of the top of the manifold for clearance..

it came to my knowledge AFTER i did all of this that you can use a throttle body spacer and solve all of the issues i ran into... derp.
