    Next was the EBCS, Plugs and AOS but first the plugs.

    First what you want to do for the driver side plugs is remove the secondary air pump. There are 3 bolts you have to remove along with a sensor and a clips in the back for the air pumps outside air casing I guess you can call it. To remove the casing I think it was either a 10 or 12mm bolts. The 3 bolts around the pump are also either a 10 or 12. Once that's removed it will look like this. Just move the air piping to one side.



    Just move the air piping to one side.



    Also remove the battery for extra room.

    Once that's all off this is what you are working with.



    A ratchet with a pivoting bit is the best thing to use. I didnt take pics of removing the plugs but I will explain it.

    First thing you want to do is get a small screw driver with a little pick at a 90* degree angle. Undo the the clip on each plug but be careful because the clips aren't very tough. The clip will unclip towards the front of the car. Once clips are undone move them to one side. the front plug is pretty easy. Undo the bolt on each coil pack. The front just comes right out. The back one turn about 180* degrees and it comes right out. Now, the front plug is fairly easy. Slide the ratchet in and wiggle around until you have a solid fit. They shouldn't be put in too hard. Once the thread has broke you can take the ratchet off and just twist with the bit. There is a lot of thread on the plugs so have patience. The second plug closes to firewall. You'll have to wiggle and get your hand in weird positions to get it in. Once in and got a good fit follow the same process. Be careful not to drop the plugs. If you drop them they are no good. Follow the same process to install the new plugs. For the passenger side you remove the intake and do the same for that side.

    Next was the ebcs and AOS. Didn't really do the install for these so I didnt get that many pics. But the instructions that Grimmspeed include and fairly easy to follow. Along with DIY on youtube really help as well.

    But here is the AOS.



    Installs right where your oil cap would be. Also the plug for the aos is the same size as your OEM lugs.



    Hooking the lines up to the AOS

    Next EBCS. Once again I was doing the plugs while my buddy was installing the aos and ebcs, so not many pics.

    This is the ebcs.



    Installing the lines.



    and the EBCS installed.



    and an engine bay shot of it all installed.

    Bought a Torx Racing TMIC yesterday (black in colour). Going to call Lightspeed and see where my gauges are to, and see if I can get a hold of JCS Pods and see where my A-Pillar is at.

    Next I installed my BC Racing Coilovers. (Apologise in advance for the cell pics)

    So here is my installation.

    First thing I did was get it in to my buddy's garage and jack it up. I did the rear first. I took all the carpet out of my trunk.



    Then I sat down and took my wheels off.



    First thing you want to do if your car is a bit older or driven in the winter is spray some PB Blaster on the nuts and bolts.

    Once that settles for a little bit you want to remove the 2 bolts on the lateral links. One bolt is a 14mm bolt that connects the end link to the lateral link (indicated by the 1) and remove the 17mm bolt that connects the shock to the lateral link. (indicated by 2)




    I marked the bolts 1 and 2 even tho its hard to get them mixed up.
    After those 2 bolts are out youll have to unscrew 2 12mm bolts up on top of the strut mount.

    A comparison of the rear stock shock and the new BC Coilover



    What I thought was a good idea was to put some anti seize inside the coilover body.





    Once thats done measure the thread body on both coilovers and make sure they are the same.

    Once thats done put the coilover back in place. Lightly tighten the bolts up top just to keep it from falling. I found it best to install the endlink bolt first. Its best to use a jack and jack up on the lateral link until the car starts to come off the jack stands. Once thats happens that mean you are at ride height. Install both bolts, the endlink bolt needs to be torqued at 33lbs and the shock bolt to 89lbs as by Subaru torque spec.



    Follow the same instrustions for the opposite side. Becareful not to over tighten or when taking the bolts off not to turn the wrong way.

    Next is the front coilovers.

    First thing is jack it up and put jack stands underneath. There are 4 bolts. One for the ABS line and the other is the brake line. Both of these bolts are 12mm



    Then there are 2 19mm bolts. The top bolt is a camber bolt which has a washer on it. (indicated by 3) and the bottom bolt is just a 19mm bolt. (indicated by 4). Again its best to put some PB Blaster on the bolts and nuts.



    Once thats done there are 3 12mm bolts up top on the strut tower. Undo those and then haul the hub out and turn right or left. Then haul the strut down. Use anti seize on the shock body again and place the coilover up in place. Make sure the camber plate opening is running parallel with the car. On the BC coils there is a R for right and L for left. Make sure the letter is facing and closest to you. The torque spec of the 2 19mm bolts are 129 as by Subaru spec. The bolt small bolts are just tight. Same with the 3 up top.




    This is the picture of the camber plate on the Driver side. Notice the camber opening and the letter.

    Some pics of the setup after I installed them.






    My take on these Coils so far is def worth the money. I know they are cheaper and yes they dont ride as good as the KWs but if you are looking to spend around 1000 dollars and dont want to spend more then these are the right choice.
