Figured out what the problem was and why it was traded so easily. Blown Turbo. Relatively easy fix considering what could have been the problem. I could just replace the turbo and be done with it, but with 186k miles on the odometer, why chance it. Out with the engine. Over the past 3 months, I have been slowly adding parts to the build docket. Picked up some TGV deletes and fuel rails from IAG. Why not? GFB bypass valve, sure. Perrin Inlet, pulley set, shroud, and hose set? Throw them in too WTF? At this point, RSDirect gets just about my entire paycheck. Frack it all. I'm here for a good time, not a long time, right?

So what is next? eBay can be a minefield for junk car parts. Last week though, I found a diamond. Invidia R400 Gemini Quad tip titanium cat-back exhaust. Bid and won. 299 bucks and not looking back. Brand fracking new. Looking around the interwebs and it seems that it should fit. What's the difference between an STI 2010 and a WRX? If it doesn't fit, force it, right. Here goes nothing.

Keeping the hope alive that maybe by this time next year this car will be moving under its own power. "How do you eat an elephant," they ask "why, one bite at a time of course."

Here are some pictures.
