    Just pulled the WRX into my neighbor's garage with A/C.

    I might do some work on it tonight if the engine bay cools off enough.

    I have tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday off.

    Engine bays cool off (I think possibly literally) 100x faster with the hood open - protip!

    Have fun and take lots of pics! Also, jealous of the A/C'd garage - my uncle's garage is just heated

    Pro tip? :/ Common sense.

    It will be fun at various times. There will be times I scream and #@&!* up a storm. It will be the most fun when I take it out and start logging. Oh, yes ... lots of pics. I plan on taking pics as I disassemble less familiar parts of the engine so I know how to put them back together.

    The first thing I did was test my recently reloaded notebook and its ability to test flash a map with the most recent posted version of ECU Flash. I'll need to do this when all is finished.

    Fail. Windows 7 can be picky about administrative rights. I looked at the log window during the attempt and noticed there was a .dll file that failed to load.

    I found several instances of the file. The one that mattered was in a sub folder of C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. The user I was logged in as (with full local admin permissions) did not have rights to the file.

    I added the user with full control permissions to that .dll and what do you know ... the test was then successful.

    I got the WRX on ramps (with two jacks) and removed the IC. I discussed the job with my neighbor and called it a night. I'll start up again tomorrow.

    And cooled. Good thing you have the hood up. It cools 100x faster that way.

    Yeah I've heard that. I think that life-changing observation was courtesy PolyPoly, no?

    A/C unit in garage = class act. I've got nothing on Sasquatch. Nothing.

    Everything is off - now for the reassembly. I took many images during the process. I'm pitifully slow at car work. I'm taking a dinner break now.

    This is not my garage - I have none. My neighbor was kind enough to let me use it. He is a professional automotive tech as well, so if I screw the pooch he can hopefully rescue me. All I owe him in return is a notebook internal video cable replacement. Way easier than what I'm doing now - I <3 bartering.

    No, never found a better fix for the radiator. My temporary fix is still working nicely. I plan on making it a little more substantial while I'm doing all this other work.

    Sweet deal. I have got to get myself an A/C unit in my garage, even if it's just for show! You know, on NASIOC there's a how-to pictorial with a guy doing a timing belt and water pump, and he's wearing a dress shirt with barrel cuffs buttoned.

    When I did my timing belt and water pump I really wanted to wear a shirt with cufflinks (to up the ante!) and post the pics but never got around to it. You might consider something like that. Maybe rent a tux or something?

    Have you seen Big Sky's post years ago about the "chimney" style heat shield for his turbo? Might be worth a look if it's still around.
