Oke, so I found out my AEM wideband with less than 10k km's was toast.

Orderd a new one and got it last week.


Right now I want to fit my Pacesetter headers first.
After these are made to fit, I'll try to start it and run megasquirt for a very short drive down the street (no insurance or roadtax paid).

Than finally the engine will come out and I can rebuild.

Here are some pictures of the OBX headers vs the Pacesetter headers.

Image

Front header, fits but narrow fit.
Image
Image
Image

And the rear header hitting the frame.

Ow.. this is a funny picture that the Pacesetter coating is really only for transport purposes.

The fit of those headers suck, it is like they were for a MX-6 or something :lol: I chopped the passenger side flange off of mine. Check my work log if your interested.

This thread is insane! I love everything about it, I want to put the mean eye look on the hatch so badly now! Everything about the car looks great.

@Deadmaker. I believe the LSD + shipping + importtaxes was about 650 euro.

@mooneggs: ooow yes... Took a few hours :freak: :welder:
But doesn't matter, it's hobby and I'll enjoy it a lot lateron.

Damn !! :crying: :crying: :crying:

It looks like my Mfactory LSD is the wrong one :twisted:

I didn't register on the website and purchased directly through paypal.
When the diff-ring didn't fit I emailed the company; they said..: "You orderd the MTX-75 lsd, this is not for your car"

I really can't understand how this could have happend !! I checked so many worklogs and asked at least 5 people what partnumber lsd i need, and yet it went wrong somehow :crying:

Okey, so the LSD is on a hold untill I get the correct part (after double shipping :crying: )

I decide to go with the Bigger Brakes according to Weede's_klze example.

Here you can see why our brakes are so tiny.

Image

And some side by side pictures
Image
Image

For me the problem is that I can't get the subaru calipers with the sliderpen/bolt. I've searched many junkyards, emailed companies and on the subaru forum but no luck.

When I comparred the millenia and the Mazda6 brakes they are about thesame. Brakepad size is equal and caliper too. The millenia just has two smaller pistons and the mazda6 1 bigger one.

I choose for the mazda6 because the disks can be nice and big and it's proven by weede_klze.

Pacesetters finally (after 8 months) adjusted.
1 tip: Never do it without a welding machine at your disposal.

Furthermore, some sparkplug wires from PRD

and a package of new stuff for the gearbox. Synchro's, bearings, seals etc
