    it finally got nice enough to bring the camera out. that and I had a brief moment of "unlazyness" this weekend...

    bad photo of wrap (it was hard to get any kinda angle)




    PNP TD04, notice I'm missing a bracket. There was a bolt missing on the bracket. Well there was a bolt on the engine block side of the bracket but it didn't fit. Pulled it right out with my fingers. Left the bracket off until I could find a bolt.
    Also missing is the heat shield. Wanted to be able to eyeball the oil return line for a little while.




    Also did some logging and tweaked my tune. Still trying to get my timing nailed down.

    got it done son!










    Had a clearance problem with the front. The bottom bolt would have scraped/bumped on the sway if I wouldn't have taken out the washers. I need to find some thinner ones or put one on the outside just to play it safe.

    The rear was a cake walk. The front gave me some headache because of difficulties getting to the bolts. I highly recommend ramps. I went to the Auto Skills center, a DIY - rent a lift/bay place for Military peoples, and they didn't have a lift available for a good while. I took a bay, that meant jack and jack stands. That slowed me down quite a bit. It was hard getting under there to torque everything down too. I'm just whining though, it wasn't that bad. But ramps, if you are smart ramps.

    I haven't really driven it anywhere but home from the shop. It did feel about 10x more awesome. If I could find a corner I could swing through at a safe speed under the speed limit that rating could jump up.

    Looking at my tires, I need new ones and an alignment.

    yeh buddy

    I highly recommend swaybars and endlinks to anybody thinking about it. My car handles sooo much better now. Corners say "gimmie some more" Busta Rhymes style. Just driving around chill mode feels a lot tighter, more responsive.

    Finally got the tuning netbook running well. Its the one I use to flash and log. Win7 Ultimate, Rom Raider 5.6, Learning View 1.0, and Ecu Flash 1.44.3721 all run very well.
    I even found a cool background



    and a quick teaser a clubwrx member persauded, ah-hem, beat me over the head (yes I'm that stubborn) and got me to flash a map off the Rom Raider site. The back of my seat feels good. Nice and firm. Gotta a little touching up to do, MAF maybe some hot spots on the timing. Also gotta tighten up my exhaust. I fixed all my leaks but I guess I didn't torque my driver side header to head down enough, sounds like it's leaking a bit. It comes and goes as it heats up and cools down though.

    finally got some new tires, the ones that were on there when I bought it were the budget flavor and can be found at Wal-Marts. Not the best traction when it was moist out. Also had an indecent with a pothole and my sidewall.

    got 4 Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position, so far they feel good. I drove straight home from tire place so not many miles on them yet.

    I'll have to dig them up for exacts but they were 5 or under. It was -, +, +, - at one point, which I heard wasn't good.

    Learning View utility...

    Ideally you want all + or all -. You have an intake, right?

    I think he has the stock intake...

    But I recall that even my stock intake on the stock tune had something like 5.5% correction in one of the cells...

    MAF scaling is generally useful on the stock intake, too.
