Good question! Yes, there's a slight difference in the location of the coolant lines which makes hose management easier to work with the GR86 design. The Forrester measures somewhere around 3/8" ID and 1/2" ID. So you'll need a compatible hose and clamp that won't leak considering it will connect to the manifold lines at smaller ID.

Nice work on the rebuild. Fresh parts are always nice.

Gave her a wash and got rid of the rust dust that got on the paint from parking right up against a chain link fence (ended up being super windy and rainy that day).

Everything I've read here indicates those units are not sufficient for track. Am I wrong about that?

Purchased Billetworz 500g shift knob from @vfrqqq. My butt dyno says it added 2.57 hp. Feels really nice too.

Installed STI motor mounts and took out the torque solutions mounts. So much quieter. Feels OEM, very happy

Full Exterior detail with ceramic coating.

The car is sitting in my friend's garage for a couple days to cure.

Shots from final polish before coating.

I'm also planning on replacing my perrin engine mounts with the sti mounts. After about 3-4 years on them, it's gotten annoying.

i always said it's a bad idea to rent out cars on turo. before you know it, they're on stripper poles trying to earn it one buck at a time.
