Got my sensor interface wired and connected to power. I am pulling RPM reference off of coil pack number 1. I have not connected it to my laptop yet to verify it is reading. Tomorrow I hope to daisy chain my gauges to the interface and to my data logger for a dry run to make sure it will record.

Installed Perrin 22mm front sway bar. People say this is a simple 1hr job but they failed to mention all the underbody panels. Removing the skid plate, the transmission aero cover, the two underbody aero covers behind that, and the draw stiffeners made the job a lot bigger than on early MY cars that had nothing underneath.

Thank you. I am so proud of myself on both the deal and the install. And you totally get me... All OEM all the way even if it's from Japan. I would love to consider both (most likely STi Axleback) but budget is tight at the moment. Had to replace wife's car after the deer hit and Lexus aren't cheap.

Installed my Forester XT oil cooler(regulator) and my PCV catch can. My car now has the supporting mods I needed after being boosted with Edelbrock for a month. I feel much better now and learned a lot. I want to that you all for the help with doing this stuff. It feels so good to work on your car and I’ve never been good at it.

How involved is the job? Do you just need the calipers or do you have to pick up brackets, rotors, etc? I've seen the swap mentioned a couple of times but no detailed info.

Think I might have broken the record last night. Friend bought some tires from Tire Rack as I offered picking them up, since a location is nearby my work.

(2) 275/40R20 and (2) 315/35R20

Had to disassemble the kid's car seat a little and then manipulated the tires around for the next 15 minutes until I got them all in! I regret not getting a picture of that hard work. The width of the tires was not as big of an issue as their diameter. I could only place 1 of the 315's in the trunk, and the rest had to go in the back with the seat down and up against the passenger seat folded forward.

But hey.. it worked!
