    I never take it above 140k/hr though (about 85-90mph).
    Bf took it up to 190k after the repair, he's like, Oh, it goes up, it goes waaay up, just don't drive fast enough

    I know right? Hope you're not having too much trouble keepin' up

    Seriously though it used to really struggle uphill & cold.
    I thought it was better after the up-pipe change, but now it kicks *ss!

    I should probably let BF drive it more often, he's got an amazing ear... but... I can't!
    I had to drive the Camry into town today and it sucked! And I had to keep myself from waving at Subies (oh yeah, I'm in the camry...)

    Good idea. BF has a case of Subie-itis though, I'll have to wait til it's passed.

    blue lights installed above the license plate.

    The shoop leaves a blue trail on the ground in its wake
    wasn't part of the plan but ok, those little LEDs are powerful

    Gauge pillar at night

    (click for daylight)

    and I just realized this evening that my P flow air intake is this pretty blue number, which I hadn't noticed earlier, because it's the only thing that's wrapped.

    On the topic of Rozzers, while in class one day, I once used that term to describe the Mounties that ran over my phone. Everyone looked at me weird. Guess not many kids watch Top Gear or are familiar with Briticisms at my school.

    Jeepers Ruh Roh, you jinxed me! I have a leak.

    Boost struggles to push 6 where it used to hit 10.
    RPMs not passing the 3500.

    And, in unrelated news, (my guess is) the connection for my temp gauge (in the pod pillar) is disconnected because it's playing dead.
    Dash temp gauge normal though, and the other two gauges in the pillar are normal too. (Boost leak notwithstanding, grumble grumble.)

    In happier news, my horns are installed
