Thought it would be fun to start a thread on everyday things we do here and there to our beloved Subarus. The weather is getting nicer, so I'm sure we will all be outside more tinkering on our cars.

Today has been a busy day for me! Got my Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 tires in yesterday from Tirerack for the Sti and had them mounted and balanced today by a real cool guy off of Nasioc. If anyone wants his info in the PNW PM me. He runs a legit business out of his home doing tire stuff n such, for a really good deal. But let me tell ya, these tires are STICKY!!! They pick up gravel everywhere but they are SOOOoo nice! It feels like a different car

When I got back from joyriding the STi in it's new tires, I washed the Forester (for the second time this week) and finally got around to hand waxing it. Looks pretty, but boy is there a lot of bumps and bruises on it!

What did you guys do to the subarus today?? :biggrin:

After finally getting around to installing forester specific pinks and new struts, last night I installed kartboy sub-frame lock out bolts. Tomorrow the new 235/50 17 Bridgestone re 960 PP tires will go on and alignment will get done. Now that it's capable, nothing is holding me back from stage 3!
^^Nice tires, I have the same ones!
Got a Walbro and VF39 sitting on the bench in the garage. New gaskets and washers come tomorrow. Do I dare try to install this on my own while I have a spare car at my disposal???
^^Those centric rotors are nice for the money, right? I have the same set up.
I did my first few full throttle logs since installing a VF43.
See less See more
^^Uh oh, what happened? I installed my Walbro finally...
It requires the key to be in the ignition. I hope it doesn't turn the car off, I can see people accidentally hitting that button!
Blew a bimmer's doors off, with a bathroom vanity in the trunk! Stayed under the speed limit of course.
PTP turbo blanket
Dropped her off at the dealer....sadface
For the love of god, why would you do that!?
Kartboy front shifter bushings! Yeah!
Are those the bushings that go under the car? How was the install? Was it worth the effort?
i lowered it on tein flex coils and 18x8 audi rs4 wheels
Must say, that's pretty cool. I've never seen Audi wheels used before. Are they 5x100? Did you have to use spacers?
View attachment 80370 need some input please. I just had tint done today and after looking it over, is using a marker to fill in spots normal or what? I've never noticed it on other vehicles. Let me know if that's ok before I start getting pissed.

Feel free to get pissed.
^^Nice work!
Try using a red Solo cup when removing the filter to catch any oil coming from the filter. Loosen the filter, place cup over filter and keep twisting.
LOL, I have a stack of them in my garage for this very reason..., no drip.
