so today i look at my car and i find that my CV boot has ripped so right away i put it up on hoist to fix her up !

as i fix the CV boot i might as well add the 20mm xt6 sway bar and my whiteline control arm bushings. i notice my exhaust header has this big un wrapped section ! i got extra header wrap might as well !!

Posted Image


so how does it drive with a 20mm sway bar and whiteline bushings !! :D:D:D lets just say look out STi's ! your Great Grand Father Subaru go show you how its done young wipper snapper's :P

lol thanks & sorry i guess hehehe

well from my model when i put it on the front fenders need 3 holes drilled in them at the bottom. i guess the two door has the 3 holes each side all ready from the factory.

i am missing one bracket under the the signal light's, there is two holes for clips i see in the factory service books and on the skirt.

ill check tomorrow and order them new, but i really dont need them its on there pretty good.

Its like a show car with only 25,000kms 26years old.

Lol it's all ways wet because I got OCD bad and I have to keep cleaning it or I get messed up in the head thinking how dirty it is.

But I just washed the engine bay also so tomorrow I will drop that motor I made in it !..

When it's all done I want a nice appraise of all I done and how clean the car is !

the pedal box is from the normal subaru (wrx, legacy turbo, gc8, sti) ones that use hydraulic system, all i did was drill the bolt holes and the huge center hole for the slave. ill take some pics for you.

also the gas pedal is not in yet...... i wanted to cut the one off the gl-10 box but my father likes to keep everything in perfect condition lol, just weird like that.

ill take some pictures under the dash for you tomorrow of it



I'm not hating or trying to flame you, but tell me you cleaned up that engine bay. I can't believe how clean that car is lol.



no worries, but this car only has 25,000kms on it, it was stored or forgotten about in a garage for 26years. and yes i degreased the engine bay and thats how clean it came out.



This is some sick ************.


:headbang:


LOL thanks man









well i wanted to keep my oem steering wheel in for cruise control but the pedal box is a bit different. then i found the oem horn button on jdm leones on ebay for nardi wheel's, i had to i could not resist. i also found the real momo hub for the leone in germany on its way specific for my car.
