Following CNY's air pump delete. The only issue having is the passenger side piping. I've cut it once on the valve side and can't snake it out. The fight will continue tonight.

Finished up the upgrades. Reinstalled the up pipe and installed the EWG with dump tube. I threw the down pipe up a couple of times for fitment and then installed it. Routed the tube from the EBCS a few different ways before placing it.

Next was the PTP turbo blanket. It was a pain, but got it in with some trickery. I wanted to reinstall my COBB heat shield in addition to the blanket, but the shield rubbed the top of the EWG. I'm considering trimming the shield to fit, but that will be another day and after I see how well the blanket does. And in not installing the head shield, I now have that bracket just sitting there. Oh well.

Last but not least, I installed Funks' GD style fuel lines. His "how-to" was great and it went in no problem. The part where he says grab a towel to pick up a bit of fuel..... HAHA. Damn near bathed in it.

I had a wonderful time on the dyno. Jestr @ Titan Motorsports was very informative and knowledgeable. He ran a bunch of different maps and the best one was 294 whp and 362 lb/ft with 19.7 psi reaching peak boost at 3400rpms. He said that kind of torque is similar to Evos. Very happy and the dump tube is LOUD!

I knew switching to the EWG that it would be loud. I enjoyed it and had my fun, but I knew that it wouldn't last forever. I mean, I married an audiologist. So, I order a Supertrapp muffler and welding it onto the dump tube. The difference is amazing. Still hear it open up, no question about that, but it sounds better. Doesn't drown out the exhaust.

This was a fun project. I originally saw the fog light on a 370z and it reminded me of F1's torque light and thought that would be cool. Then, I saw rcubed's hatch with the light.

After seeing that, I had to have one. Did some research and ordered 7 different lights, trying to find the right size and bulb setup to match/relate to the rest of the rear. The Whelen M2 light was a nice setup, with multiple strobe patterns, waterproof and tested time and time again on cop cars.

Wiring was easy and I used stainless steel hardware to mount it to the car.

I didn't want to cut and splice the original wires, so I used inline connectors and packed them with dielectric grease.

I like everything about it except it is a thick light. Up close it is a little much, but from a few steps back it looks good and when it is lit, it looks great.

Finished the AOS. Not a bad install.

Here is a picture of the pitch stop. I can't really explain it. It's not over torqued. Too much use?

Installed the Circuit Motorsports Clutch Master Cylinder Brace. Really quick install with no major issues, other than switching out the pitch stop back to stock. No where near as bad as the Grimmspeed Cylinder Brace.

I ship everything UPS, mostly because it's close, but also because the UPS chick drives a Subie

I love reading project threads like this, great progress! I do feel a little dumb regarding some of the mods, seeing as all my modding-knowledge is concentrated on MINI's and Volvo.

That's how I felt when I jumped into Subarus. I had basic knowledge and now I'm worrying about oil viscosity, boost creep, and series or parallel fuel rails. It's been a lot of fun and still have plenty to do.
