    after much cleaning, a little shampoo, good scrub, the stiff suspension moved over, new wheels and muffler courtesy of EGProject.

    as of a few minutes ago -

    what is left.... windshield replacement (saturday, $150!! new), replacement steering wheel (got a good shape OEM one for free with airbag), skunk2 short shifter (to replace the one that is cut), tie rod ends, new post cat (doesnt have one and its tossing a code) and thats pretty much it.

    after all that.... since the bulk of the work is already done for me (thanks random 16yr old kid who put a ton of new dealer parts on the car)

    build list -
    OEM LS side skirts and rear pods
    quick maaco paint job
    OEM C/F hood
    dohc 1.5 head swap and tune with megasquirt
    lancer evolution 3 fully adjustable suspension
    and maybe, an evo4 spoiler


    last but definately not least i would like to thank Eric and his boss for dealing with me during the time it took me to actually pay for the car. trust me it wont go to waste ;)
    and done. voila.

    yeah, i just fixed the broken lugnut ;) and moved the exhaust up. its quieter now that its not fucked. gonna probably weld the back section tomorrow.

    yeah, but i sold the evo 4 spoiler unfortuantely. made my money plus some back though.

    If you're throwing a code, try to use spark plug antifoulers that have the right thread and pitch to screw into the 02 sensor bung. It should move the sensor far enough out that it no longer throws the code.

    <----WRX has it done.

    got the code read again and it was for EVAP leak. makes sense since i didnt have a gas cap until the day after i got it home. reset the code and drove almost 200 miles since yesterday afternoon with no codes. hoooray!
