    In terms of what's next, I just hit 1000 miles so I plan on doing an oil change, still need to decide on what oil and filter I'm going to use. I'll also be installing a IAG AOS street this weekend while I have it on the lift.

    Some other mods I'm working on installing or have scheduled are rally armor flaps, grimmspeed plate relocate, tint and bra.

    I ended up finding a great deal an an auto dim mirror made by the same company that supplies subaru, which also ended up being a few generations newer which I just installed last night. The adapter wasn't the same size as the one supplied by Subaru but I spliced 2 together to make it work:

    Added my IAG AOS this weekend because I've been concerned with oil getting into my intake, which will hopefully result in less carbon build up over the life of the motor. I especially wanted to get this in early given I hope to go stage 2 in a few years time.

    The install itself was a lot more difficult then I was expecting, especially after having some issues getting any boost after the install. The problem was at WOT the car wouldn't hold boost, it just wavered between 15 and 20 psi. Thinking this was a boost leak I took everything back off the car several times making sure everything was sealed. Still had the same issue but realized I had disconnected the battery to do the install, so at this point I'm thinking the ecu is running in a conservative mode while it relearns the settings. After about 50 miles the car is responding much better and continues to improve. If I'm completely wrong please feel free to correct me, this car is very new to me and my first turbo'd vehicle.

    Here is some pics from the install though:

    Today I have the car in for tint and clear bra. Went with full frontal protection, along with the mirrors and headlights. For tint just went with a 50% carbon.
