Probably just a problem im having but check your clearance on the bottom of your block. For some reason my 3in front overpipe combo makes contact with my heads. Maybe mine is just an older model than yours.

Car looking good. Could i ask what youre using to tune your own setup? I was thinking of doing some of my own self tuning.

Much to my surprise, the 3" op/fp fits better than my much older 2.5" from JDL did. Jesse has fixed the fitment issues I think. What engine mounts do you have?

We've been using ECUTEK, it's wonderful. I have a friend doing the majority of my tuning, I am not great and only fiddle with basic things

I'll work on it! Car is now my daily. Selling some stuff, back to the quad exit because it's quieter outside (somehow the single exit is quieter in-car though)

Snowstorm got bad and on my way home, I went off the road at about 25mph. Impreza is done. Going to be testing a cam driven oil drain sump, hopefully setting it up tomorrow. Still need to fix tune for low RPM drivability, it's rough in stop and go

Thank you! I'm alright, I let go of the steering wheel and relaxed my feet at the last second to make sure my joints weren't the ones trying to absorb the impact. The worst part was that the airbag flung my glasses somewhere and I couldn't find them- I drove to the tow yard the next day and found them under the passenger seat

Put on the cam driven oil pump. Waiting for the fujibond to set overnight and will finish tomorrow. We're going to test without a catch tank first, just to see what happens. I don't know if it'll even be able to pull oil until it's full, we'll find out pretty quick. We added assembly lube in the pump gear before assembly

Update- started the car today, working awesome! No leaks or smoking from the exhaust anymore. Only time will tell, and I've yet to really let the car cook with this setup yet, but I have high hopes. Waiting on a blockoff for the oil pan -10an that comes in tomorrow.

I want to convert to a single exit without buying a new exhaust or maybe finally putting the resonator on the remark will help with taming the cabin noise lol.

I know, I have the resonator ready to go on mine, I just haven't had them do it yet. The Greddy was quieter inside the car by a little bit, but much much much louder outside the car. The first day I swapped it, people were like " I heard you from like 2 miles away"
