Oh snap! How long have you been in? My buddy was deployed and stationed in Kabul a couple years back.
This is a discussion on Mammal's SWP 13 WRX (third times a charm) within the Builds forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Oh snap! How long have you been in? My buddy was deployed and stationed in Kabul a couple years back....
i will hit 9 years this June. I have been to Kabul a few times as well , not a nice place. But i will training for the next year plus, so lots of time to spend w/the family and the subaru. Actually, i am doing the clutch and some bushings atm
How did the clutch job go? With all this added torque I'm supposed to gain I'm pretty sure I will have to replace mine with something beefier in a couple years lol.
Taking my time, clutch is in just need to put everything back together. Once I hit 335 ft lbs , my clutch lasted about 7-8 months of spirited driving. There are a lot of vids online, but a couple things I would suggest is to pull the 3 bolts holding the uppipe to the hot side of the turbo. I didn't have to on my 02 wrx, I can only assume this is because of the larger turbo. Pulling the nuts (you can leave the studs in) at the up pipe allows enough wiggle room for the bell housing to clear. Also, I placed a block of wood on the two large bolts under the motor, near the midpipe. This is to keep the motor from pitching when you separate the trans and will make life easier, especially if you are doing the job solo like I am. I will post some pics of this stuff tomorrow; I am doing the shifter bushings and trans mount at the same time, as it makes sense to knock this out while the trans is out of the way.

I contacted lightwerkz earlier today and I will be pulling the trigger on a set of tsx clear lenses. I am pretty stoked to open up my headlights again to do this. Looks as if I will get that HID color cutoff without the HID price. Has anyone else done this?
That plate is awdsome!

Not sure if u know but there is an instagram account with your license plate name. They're based out here in southern California and making a pretty big name for themselves.
