WRX waiting at Tru-Line Seattle (Bellevue, WA) for her new legs, early this morning: Eibach Pro-Kit springs and swaybars. Just got her back and I'm happy! Going to need to spend some time getting used to the new turn-in and differences in handling. Slightly less understeer, maybe? #subaru #wrx #newmod
Drove the car from The Netherlands to the end of Poland (1500km) to find out that the supercharger was loose. Turns out the previous owner had made custom brackets to fit it. It looks like these brackets were welded by a blind retard with his feet, booger welds all over. Only 2 out of 4 bolts we still tightend, the bracket was cracked and loose. I managed to patch it up with some stainless lockwire and drove it to
Got some bad news from the machine shop. The 350 I brought in has a cracked block and a cracked head. It would make a decent boat anchor. That's about it. So with a friend's help, I set out to find another engine from the junkyard. Luckily for me, the yard had numerous Vortec 350s strewn all over the place.

So this little fella has been hanging out around my IC for a week or so. Just going along for the ride. Poking it’s head out at each prolonged stop. It is very camera shy, but I managed to capture it before it hid again... Guess I’ll add it to the mod section. Real lizard mod.
1st mod getting rid of the red mirrors. One small problem was a rusted but that broke off clean. Needed to replace the whole pivoting mechanism. Spraywraped them for now until I know what color I will go for. Thinking about getting that nice glossy grey that Audis have but also the factory glossy blue looks nice... 3 Months to decide
The P.O. was not very good at parking, or driving (or both). Wheels had significant curb damage, and the front-right was bent. The original contis were on their last life. One was replaced with a chinaman alternative. Ditched the Contis for Pirelli P7 Cinturatos 👌🏽 These things are incredible. Rims were straightened, and refinished. Ready for primetime... #newmod, #carporn, #advice,
