So I have two dead cars now.

Stock td04 died in subie.

I rented a car for a week and found a replacement td04. For free!

It died the day i put it on :(

I am getting a VF48 tomorrow and will put it on.

Also got a tactrix cable and

sti up pipe
nvida downpipe
PLX DM-6 AFR gauge ($200) THIS **** IS ******* BALLER
sti intercooler

I'm gonna try to put it all on tomorrow. Sigh. Need my daily driver working.

This subaru opensource tuning **** is done by MAF. It is weird. I am not used to having a regular old "fuel map". If anyone has done this opensource tuning stuff before, I have some quick questions if you have 5-10 minutes to spare.

It runs, it just won't move because it has no transmission.

And you're finally going to either replace the head gasket or remove the reroute, right?

Wow you're on top of the ball!

Uhh yeah something like that maybe. Then again I did drive 30k miles on my old motor with the reroute and also 5k on this motor without problems.

Since Fae got himself banissshed again I'll drop this here for you:

It was not a big priority but I finally dug it out of my garage today! Invidia!

How about $140 plus shipping- It is a really nice 3 inch Invidia with a divorced bellmouth just like this except with pretty rainbow patina from being exposed to warm swirling gasses inside. New lists for $416 plus freight! Holy crap! I see after a search they sell for as low as $260 plus freight online so this is like half price. It appears to be full length but has no bolt on flange at the downstream end. It looks like it was welded to the rest of the exhaust system and has been hacksawed off when removed. Makes me really want 3 inch exhaust on my Miata!









I'll get some actual pics of my particular unit in the daylight. Looks like it fits 02-07 WRX/STI according to what I'm reading. Disclaimer - Sixshooter is not a Subie expert, lol.
