Thank you Jovi!

The seals are oem, yes. I got the from Subaru parts wholesale.com

OCV is the oil control valve- mine were super rust covered and gross. I don't know how it will be to daily on the stage 2, I drove a wrx that had a 6 puck and got used to it. This should be less harsh than a traditional 6 puck. I don't have a first hand account of what it'll be like with a lightweight flywheel and lightweight crank pulley, so I'm going to find out for myself! The carbon fiber driveshaft should help make it smoother

I'll attach a photo of the OCVs. The are at the 4 corners of your timing/front cover

Carbon ddriveshaft with light weight pulley? I thought that adding the two was not good combo? I usually see fluidampr as the recommended with a light weight driveshaft. Either way when you get the clutch going let me know.

Yeah the fluidampr is recommended. I will probably end up with one,but I want to see how the car revs and drives with lightweight EVERYTHING! What is life but a chance to try and learn things?

I'll keep you in the loop with the clutch

Shit, I would have shipped you my LWP for free, it is a paperweight on my desk.

I can't take something for free, but what would you want for it? If you're actually interested in getting rid of it-

You can have it. I don't feel good about selling it since I consider them snake oil. It came on my car when I bought it 5 years ago so I have no money invested in it. Just PM me your address. It is the Perrin LCP.

Send it to me if that's the case. I'm itching for a new mod while parts are waiting to be purchased.

Most of the stuff is here! Everything is basically as expected- injectors look like injectors, fumoto valve looks nice, used clutch and flywheel are used.

BUT

what I want to draw attention to are the following-

Mishimoto fan shroud

Quite a bit thinner than the factory shroud, yay! The plastic the fans are protected by seems sturdy, I was expecting weak flimsy stuff, so that's a bonus. Sleeving on the wiring is done nice, blah blah.
The welds though. Yuck. Every weld looks incomplete or has pinholes. It's no wonder some people have issues with their radiators (specifically why I am not going with an aftermarket rad until I see a cooling issue)

STI transmission mount

I am quite surprised how close this is to bring a solid poly mount. This has quite a bit more fill compared to stock than I was expecting, I have no doubt that this will be exactly what I'm hoping for. I added photos comparing it with my stock mount, I couldn't unwedge my insert so just use it as a way of seeing how much open space there is by comparison.

Radium Engineering fuel rail set

Wow. I was extremely impressed with their catch cans and decided I would use them for anything I could- the rails are nothing less than incredible. The fuel lines and -an fittings provided are beautifully done, the deburring on the edges is perfect, nothing sharp at all. All bolts/adapters are included and packaged well.

I cannot wait to have all of these parts working together, and hopefully for a very long time. I also got my 4 OCVs in. They are from a totaled 2019wrx, $90 shipped with the revised part number? Hell yeah.

Bonus photo- got the throwing wheel cleaned up. Might make a new soup mug for winter. Lost access to the kiln so I'll need to get creative

Seems like the perrin lockdown bushing can work with sti mount. . Can't wait to see this buttoned up. I'm going with the mishimoto fans as well. Im no electrical guy and I rather have plug and play. Plus the mishimoto sponsorship is cheap. If I need a rad I'm going with CSF.
I thought you bought the South Bend Stage 3? Or was it the Exedy stage 2?

I got the stage 2, yup! I agree with plug and play, should keep things simple. I've had Koyo radiators before and am loyal to them. I'm still on the fence about running the stage 2

Put it back in the garage, too many leaves and acorns for it to be outside anymore.
Was nice to just sit in it- can't wait for this thing to drive!
