Sad I don't want to talk about it. Extreme highs and lows with the car.

1. 2008 WRX: Bella
VF52 + fmic + fuel pump + forge BPV + NGK spark plugs + Cobb DP + Ultimate Racing + TXS CAI + Grimmspeed EBCS = one badass daily driven car. Sold off everything except the DP and reverted back to standard Stg 2 w/ TD04. 6 months after, she was back to where she used to be but this time with a Cobb SRI and AVO TMIC.

Power steering rack leak started while on leave. Slow enough to just keep filling the reservoir a little bit every 3 weeks or so. Will get fixed at the beginning of the new year.

2. 1999 2.5RS: Alice
Developed piston slap and the hestiation issue couldn't be resolved. She got a EJ205 and WRX tranmsission swap at the beginning of 2012 courtesy of the 08 donating parts to help supply the funds. On top of that installed some KYB AGX and Prodrive P1 springs and got the windows tinted. Drove perfectly without issue for almost a year. Incident with road debris this past Thursday. Currently at Subaru waiting the outcome and what insurance says. (Drivetrain is ****ed)

VF39, STi tmic, and STi pink injectors waiting to go in.
