Got inspection and registration and all that done this week. Also had this car for a year now and itís been incredible. No complaints whatsoever

Great clips @Grady Sounds pretty good. Iím going to go with a 3 inch exhaust when I upgrade since they sound great, but Iíll keep mufflers on. Iím sure yours is pretty loud in person huh lol

Yes it is. Never thought there would be that much difference from stock exhaust no mufflers or catís to this set up. I will probably change out the axle back part for the one with the mufflers. For now I just do my cold starts at 5:00am with the garage door closed.

Did the Forester XT Oil Cooler "mod", I got coolant everywhere. It legit smells like coolant for the last 3 days. I checked everything no leaks as of now just the initial intake cooler leak from removing the U-Tubing.

I did it buying parts off of Subaru and buying generic hosing (will replace with Coolant hosing) to save the $130 from Neds kit.

Forgot to burp the coolant system the first day and got weird numbers, thank god I remembered to do it after getting home from work.

I have to grow a pair and hose down the engine bay, but haven't done an engine bay hose down in years, scared of the weird wiring setup in the BRZ.

As long as you cover your battery and alternator, fuse box and ABS controller, you should be fine. After you hose it down, blow out as much water as you can with either air compressor or leaf blower, then run your engine for 5 minutes.

Changed to winter tires this weekend. This might be the first Kormetal rims ever put on a BRZ. They are 16 inch and not expensive. I'm waiting for the snow now



The blue in the middle of the rims is the protecting film, and has been removed now..

Yesterday, I had a trip with my mother. She had been on my car before and didn't say anything about the car. I've just removed the foam from the sound tube, and now it sounds better, I think. Anyway, while she was telling me about things, I've put it to manual mode and drove around 4000-5000 rpm. She stopped and said, "something is wrong with this car?" I said "why?" she replied, "I feel like I'm sitting on the engine instead of the seats." Then I've returned to D gear, and everything is back to normal again I love this car..

Mmmmmm....442 vert. Seems there are a few of us with old muscle and new fun.

As for my BRZ, it got a fresh fill of Amzoil Signature 0-20 today.

Nothing..I didn't do anything today with my poor brz because of what I did yesterday. I rolled it 3 times. This will likely be my last post unless I can find a cheap totaled brz to restore...they wouldn't let me take it back.

I haven't bought tire pressure sensors for the winter tires, they were very expensive. So I have the tire pressure light on all the time.

I've noticed that the traction control has been activated very early and too often (in the default, no-sport mode). Winter tires have much better grip than the stock tires; however I haven't noticed this issue with the stock tires. Could this be related to lack of tire pressure sensors?
