Replaced nearly all exhaust gaskets with grimmspeed gaskets over the weekend to fix a few leaks in the system. Car feels brand new now, much better feel in the low end and especially in boost, and sounds much better! Also heat wrapped the up and down pipes with DEI titanium wrap. And recently acquired a front strut tower brace and battery tie down from my bro

Plastidipped some things white a while ago, took a while but the look has really grown on me! Next time I do work on the car I'm going to re-dip all the white to black with red spackling over it, I think that will look pretty cool.

Also, I've been accumulating a bunch of parts and have a few full install days ahead of me:

Group-N engine mounts
Group-N transmission mount
STi TMIC
Perrin PSRS
Fumoto drain valve
TIC fender braces
Front and rear Kartboy shifter bushings
Rally Armor mud flaps

...I think that's all I have right now...

But aside from the fun stuff I also need to replace the power steering pump, the top radiator hose, drain and fill the transmission, and I bought a bumper quick release setup. I'm hoping it'll help to straighten up the bumper as I have kind of torn it up on some curbs

Fun times ahead! Just need a garage...
