    well heres an update- purchased a replacement oil pan, still the 2.0 pan, will reuse the stock pickup, will install next oil change. yes yes i know i shouldve gotten the 2.5 pan as prep for ELH with a killer b pickup Zach, but im poorish now lol. I picked up a gauge bezel, the thing where i have my AEM WB gauge mounted to, because i want to try to mount my gauge lower. Just orderd a Defi 52mm 30psi boost gauge in red from JSCspeed. Ordered yesterday, on truck for delievery today install tonight, i will make a write up of my awesome cheap redneck ziptie install. My WB gauge is still perfectly secure and looks fine. Cheaper than a SMY cluster and does the same thing and still looks clean enough for most people.

    Even though the catch can setup was leak free, the hose kept popping off. The turbo inlet hose is biger than the Valve cover vent line part so the stock hose is wider at one end. So to make it work for my catch can i had to add a little hose adapter and it kept popping off so i saif eff it and bought a new stock one. Dont get blowby anyway so all good

    this blows apart because clamps get loose, yes i know i can use T bolt clamps but i dont care



    meh



    new hosee



    so spur of the moment type of thing, i wanted to do a quick photoshoot. washed and waxed car a week ago so it was dirty already. thought if there was a way to get the dirt off without washing it, like a duster... welllll good news kids! there is, its called a California Dust mop or something like that, Mikie was telling me about it before and i never thought to get one. Well it worked awesome and picked up the dust off the car without scratching, smoothly glided over teh car and made her look good then just used a quick detail spray and a microfiber cloth to shine her up quick then used the cloth for the wheels and good to go.

    i went to advance auto for some cleaning things but they sold a "pacific coast duster" which is kinda the same thing but it was more expensive than the orignial cali dust mop, so i went pep boys for the mop.

    these mops come in diff sizes. i got the plastic handle for 15$ because i felt no reason for the giant one which was 24$ or the wood handled one for 23$.



    at advance auto i picked up some towels since ive been drying mine with ~2 year old towels that were never washed and old microfiber cloths for buffing... so got some new stuffz.


    made a little quick detail kit to keep in the car, simple green, water, quick detailer spray, microfiber cloth for quick detailer, exhaust polishing towel, static dust cling mitt for dash.


    stuff works well and got it for free



    so then with the car being clean i decided to go take some photos heres a sample and the link for the full album, please like and share

    well got my Defi racer 52mm red boot gauge from JSCspeed. 195$ and got it the next day. So far only great experiences ordering from JSCspeed.

    heres my zip tie college budget gauge holder. it works and its nearly free, good enough for me.

    eye it up or measure where ya want the gauges. if u look at my older posts i had it more on the 9 o'clock position and i wanted it lower so i got a new bezel to work with. end result is similar mounting as the SMY cluster...just a ton cheaper.

    so when ya drill the holes keep in mind the clip position as well as whats under where youre drilling. its not all smooth under there so ya dont want to drill on a little structural support thing. so i used my fingers, eyes and a ruler to get it around evenly mounted. when drilling they need to be even and sort of in the middle of the bezel otherwise your ziptie will be angled and itll slide.


    youll need to make a little cutout so the wires arent super pinched against the dash gauge cluster. dremel works well. just hard to reach.



    used some of this foam stuff this time so the gauge goes in between this and the plastic bezel. before i didnt use this and it was still fine, but since it came with my gauge i figured id use it. when all mounted you can still slightly spin the gauge against this so its straight.


    put the sticky foam tape down and thats how the zip tie "pod" loop looks. i also put a piece on top of the gauge where the ziptie presses against. (on my old setup i didnt use any of this foam tape and still worked fine, didnt slide, rattle or fall off)





    here how the zip tie goes




    tighten em up and snip excess



    good good enough for me



    did a little photoshoot the next day in philly and got some cheesesteaks

    full album hereee

    thennnn saturday night a wild rock appeared on the back side of a small hill, middle of lane. about the size of 2 phone books stacked. not sure how it wondered its way into the middle of road but oh well i hit it. if i turned right i woulda hit some trees so i turned left and caught it with the front right wheel. popped tire, bent wheel, broke front lips, messed up front bumper, pushed wheel back towards the doors so i suspect control arm, strut, maybe subframe, axle, is all messed up. who knows. wil tow to shop today and get it fixed hopefully by end of week.

    if anyone knows or has a good deal on stock 235's from the new gen wrx's and are selling message me plz.

    Bummer dude. You shouldn't have any issues filing a comprehensive claim, at least. No rate change, either.

    well they said i have one "accident forgiveness" that i can use. She suggested if its less than a grand to pay out of pocket, if more than a grand to use it. With used parts from my parts guy and then labor from a Subaru only shop i will hopefully be able to be under a grand, that would include a set of use stock wheels with decent tires. If I get a new wheel, new tires, thats easily a grand right there. So im going to see how much the repair is first without doing anything about the wheels then i will decide from there. Any other ideas?

    Are they not treating it as a comprehensive claim? If so, you should only have to pay your comprehensive deductible (which is normally way lower than collision deductible).

    That's bull crap. Tell them it was out of your control and you would have caused damage else wise. I'd throw a fit.
