    Figured it was time I finally made a thread.

    Picked this up back in late July/Early August. Was originally imported through Derek @ PacificCoast.
    It's pretty stock. Some tein superstreets, hks ssqv and an hks catback.

    In Vernon, it is now mine.

    Looks great Braden.
    What's the mileage on it?
    Any plans for it, or just keeping it stock?

    Thanks.
    Cluster says 102k. It was documented & swapped at 22,000 to a ralli-art 300kph cluster (that I've since found out a lot of people want, they sell for ~$600 or so used). So 124,000ish km.
    New s-drives, t-belt, water pump, tensioners, etc were all done before I picked it up. It's in great shape, just need to get rid of the old purple/bubbly tint and there's a spot on the lip I would like to get re-painted (probably just get the whole bumper done and 3m'd after winter).

    Nothing crazy, it's my daily, I'll be getting something rwd to play with once summer comes. Plans for it are downpipe, install a fuel pump I have sitting around, battery relocation to trunk, and some general engine bay clean up (evo engine bays always look so dated and worn/weathered). Then I'll be getting it e-tuned by tscomptuned USA, going from ~10psi to ~20psi should be awesome.

    Nice that a bunch of major maintenance was done already.

    Man if you get an FD I think that would be the ultimate JDM combo. Winter/Daily Evo and an FD for summer! Damn.

    I contacted TK asking about replacement parts (in the brochures, there are Tommy Kaira fog covers). They told me Tommy Kaira went bankrupt 10 years ago and the new company Tommy Kaira Japan is a different company.....soooo.....

    How does it drive, compared to your past two WRX's? Does it feel heavier? Does it mad-tyte-drift? :p

    I don't notice the extra weight. I like it better as a car overall. And yes, it sure does :p

    Hrm.. So what is new. I've been driving it a lot, hasn't really let me down.

    I installed an oil pan heater, starts every time no matter how cold.

    Some dink (putting it very nicely) scraped my rear bumper and didn't leave a note or anything. Now I need a bumper respray eventually /sigh

    [​IMG]

    After having four months of less than adequate cabin heat, I took it in for a heater core flush. The tech said he has never seen so much 'shit' come out of a heater core before. Vent temperature at idle went from 20c to 60c, nice and toasty.

    New thermostat should be here tomorrow. Ordered it from 'partsouq'. Really good price for an oem t-stat and shipping via fedex was only $10. Some nice fresh coolant in the rad should top everything off nicely.


    Noticed a tear in my intake to compressor inlet silicone coupler tonight. So have to track one of those down tomorrow. Also some nasty build up in the compressor housing of caked oil and dust. I don't think this HKS filter has done that great of a job over the years. Project for this weekend maybe.. Remove the turbocharger and clean that up, repaint the compressor housing and exhaust housing as well.. Along with some other bits and pieces that will be easy to remove while I'm down there (heat shield, fan housing, etc). Would like to fab up a catch can as well to prevent anymore of the oil build up. Charcoal canister can gtfo and that will provide a nice location for one.. Need to replace the air filter with something else too, probably an apexi.

    How old is that filter? those hks ones are great for flow and that's it. The one I got on my car was all disintegrated and gross.
    I fit one of these in the same. [​IMG]
    It's supposed to be better, who knows?
    My catch can needs regular emptying in winter. more condensation I guess.
