ok, i'll spill it and post pics as I get them....

I installed front braided stainless brake lines.
Oil cooler (behind the grille there on the right...err, left side of the car)
Remote oil filter base (there at the air filter/flow meter assy)
plumbed up the BOV/recirc system correctly
re-hooked up the high idle thingy
installed that new air filter....its shorter than the cone, so the intake boot/hose is not bound up and stressed
changed the oil and use the OE SUBARU oil filter and crush washer (oh, funny pic for that one to come)
and....the brakes need to be bled tomorrow, still some air in it.

Oh and installed new belts and the new tensioner.

Since were all posting engine pics....

Anyway about that filter... as one can see I also have one that I got at checker. I just cleaned mine with the k&n kit and discovered something distrubing. The "filter" is made of "egg crate" padding material. Also did you make or buy some sort of adapter for it?

More pics to come.....

that fuel filter is only $3....and its rated for FI....

whats wrong with the stock location? Well....the air dam prevents air flow around it and the oil just gets hotter and hotter with that header right there.....on NA its fine. Plus, i wanted a non-T-stated oil cooling system, so I just moved it.

Oh crap, rain, stuff outside.

That XT stuff's been on there about...2 years now i think. Then braided lines are da bomb! I bled the system with the engine on this time, and had a helper...and that pedal is rock hard! Insta-response!

i do think that I need to get a new mast. cyl, and a brace for it.

its 1/2" fuel line...lol. From NAPA. 300 PSI rating. I figured it would work. Used it on my first oil cooler set up.

Oh, the stainless lines? thats secrect! lol The back are different and to my knowledge no one makes a stainless for the rear.

What type of epoxy are you useing for the "bpv to the intake side of turbo" I have to do that exact same thing. I was thinking I would have to make my own boot but your way looks pretty clean.
