What's up!

Thanks, bro! She's going in for an alignment tomorrow. I added a little more negative camber to my front left, and I need them to correct the toe spec from that added change. Also, the roads I drive on suck, so I'm sure something has gone out of spec since the last time I took her in for an alignment. So OEM shoes are back on in the meantime (rather risk nicks to those than the WedsSports).

Decided to add this carbon fiber strut bar so that the engine bay isn't too boring.





And yes, I know this does nothing for my car. lol.

How my work day started...this was the second time I got stuck...and then right after I got pulled out, I got stuck again. bah



Gravel is surrounding the exhaust pipe, touching the LSD, and pretty much everything else:




The rear wheel was pretty much in the air since it was fully extended.

In addition to installing the HU in Dory, I installed these Morimoto switchback LEDs in Snow White. Comparison pics. Passenger side is always the LEDs, and driver side is always OEM.

Turn signal


Parking light mode

Here's a couple night shots of those switchbacks:






Great lumen output in parking light mode (anymore, and I think I'd get pulled over). However, turn signals are just not enough. I can't see them flashing on the ground from the cabin.

I don't like how they are flat and the piston is always dragging on the bottom of the cylinder. seems like it would cause more wear. I don't like how you have to perform 2 head jobs every 70,000 miles or so. I don't like the sound they make, and how they basically run like two 2cylinder engines in opposition. manly, I don't like the people whom drive Subaru. (in my area) they are so self riotous and pompous I could puke

Luckily for me, the only crazy thing in the maintenance book for the FR-S is the 60k spark plugs. Don't see anything about a head rebuild, although I knew it wasn't the most reliable engine type. haha.

The 86 doesn't sound like a "Subaru" since Subaru utilized an EL header. I actually want to replace it with an UEL header to get that boxer burble.

In my area, it seems like EVO owners are what you described. lol.

Swapped out the OEM rear turn signals with VLEDs HVA bulbs (I'll swap Dory's on my days off since I have to swap the flasher relay on her still)





I'm sure you guys can tell which is OEM and which is the VLEDs. lol
