    What would you refer to it as? I just noticed it missing while looking at logs from my AP.

    Not sure honestly...never knew it was a measurable parameter. I do Open Source and never look at that. I didn't think there was any stock sensor for post TMIC temps.

    I suspected there was no sensor. Is there one in the STi's? It can be very beneficial during tuning. Hmmm looks like I'll be looking into

    02/20/2014 JPM Coachworks Shift Boost, E-Brake Boot, and Arm Rest completed! Looks so much better. Though I'm not sure if the shift boot is the short shift version, it sure doesn't look like it. I had the arm rest done by JPM and man I wish I had the shift boot done as well. It is a ridiculous pain to do. That's just me because I'd rather wrench of some nuts and bolts than work with upholstry.

    Edit: Yes, I know, I need to clean up dog hair.

    Definitely subscribed to this thread!

    I really like how all the details are coming together on this car and it is giving me ideas on how to handle things.

    Nice. That was the first thing I did on my 2012...JPM shift and ebrake boot and a new shift knob. The shift boot was easy, but the ebrake boot was a PITA. But, I got it done and it looks great.

    No.

    A good modification is to relocate the IAT sensor to the end tank on the TMIC. After this, you can scale your IAT comps accordingly.

    This. This is exactly the kind of DIY thing I was looking for. Would be nice to have both, but I'll have to make due with what I can get.

    He had a nice 06 or 07 WRX he really built up. Added a ton of his own gauges, including a post core temp sensor like that to his TMIC. Wired it into the car to temp gauges. He knew at all times the boost charge temp, and post TMIC boost charge temps. It was cool.

    You sir, are the man! Found it right here: Post IC IAT Gauge

    I'll probably end up doing this. Of course it will be done a bit different in a '14 WRX. I'll also see what I can come up with in terms of logging with the AP. I might reach out to Evan over at Cobb.

    Thanks again.

    So kind of a silly question here as I've never really worked on a New (or new-ish) car, just my old DSM. How long did it take you to swap all the bushings? I know the car being newer makes a world of difference for these jobs.
