    Tires off for better access. 4 very sturdy jack stands underneath and ready to drop the transmission



    Transmission dropped

    The stock clutch on the left and the new Stage 2 clutch on the right



    And the new clutch installed in its new home.

    Installing the new headunit. Taking the radio out was easy. Most wires where to easy to deal with. I soldered the wires together and used heat shrink on them. Couldnt get my steering controls to work so im going to take another look at that another time.

    Here the dash trim off



    Stereo out and just vents there along with the wiring.



    Getting the wires straightened out.



    Soldered them together and heat shrink.



    Putting the new stereo in



    New stereo in and dash trim on

    Just ordered my Prosport Evo gauges. I ordered the EGT, Boost and Oil Pressure. All red illumination and all 52mm gauges. Also ordered a JCS Pods 3 gauge A-Pillar. And im hoping to get the ebcs, fuel pump, intercooler piping and plugs in this weekend or the next and also hoping to get the new inner fender well, front splash guard and the coilovers on next weekend. Also going to see what numbers im making when I get the few performance parts on.

    First thing I did was replace the inner fender well. First thing I did was put it up on a buddys lift and took the tire off.

    First pic is the damaged part of the inner well. This all happened when I was backing out of a friends yard and my front lip hooked into the ground and hauled the driver side of the bumper off breaking the clip joining the fender to the front bumper and numerous clips in the fender well and underneath the front bumper.



    So I removed the rest of the clips inside the inner fender well and seen in the pics.. (The pics are bright so I apologize.)



    and there are these 3 little clips that can be removed with a Phillips screw driver and also a flat top. In order to remove these you would have to take out 2 clips under the side skirt (be careful these clips are easy to break) and also haul out on the piece that contains the sti emblem (which is in between the side skirt and fender)



    After that I washed her up and and took a pic of the new fender well.

    What I use to wash my car



    And the inner fender well

    Next I installed the DW65c fuel pump, Grimmspeed air oil separator and Electronic Boost Control Solenoid.

    Pics of the Fuel pump install are below.

    First thing you want to do is drive around or take the gas out of the tank. You want to be on gas light or the notch above where the gas light would come on. Then let it sit for a couple hours so the pressure inside the tank dies off.

    Then you take the back seat out by undoing the 2 pull clips under the seat towards the middle of the driver and passenger back seats. (be careful with these for they are easy to buckle.) Once the seat is off this is what youll see.



    You'll have 4 screws on what looks like a speaker was my first thought hah. Undo those screws and remove the cover and seal. Like below.





    Once that's done you'll have to undo 3 clips and a sensor. (its best to use shop towels or cloths to put around the plugs when undoing them for they will still leak gas)



    Undo a few screws and haul the assembly out.



    Next undo more screws, clips and a sensor on the pump housing. Empty the gas and wipe the housing out with a cloth.





    and this is the stock fuel pump.



    once thats all done install the new pump and basically do everything I just did but in reverse.

    The new pump



    The new pump installed.
