    well, gonna be ordering a gmmg soon. Should sound pretty good after longtubes and a catted y. Along with some sfcs, and the koni/strano setup should make out for a nice ride

    be jealous when the parts come in
    Clutch never came in, comes directly from monster. The gmmg annd konis will probably be next week or two and the longtubes, ory, and sfcs will probably be after that. Somewhere in there will be an mgw shifter but I can wait on that.
    I'm just pissed my clutch hasn't come in yet. Was hoping to have that done tomorrow

    Go for the merge over a y, it does help with the rasp.

    OK so its been a while but i finally got some stuff dona and got a few pics.
    Car was pretty nasty under the hood and i didn't get as many before pics as i wanted since i lent out my camera but i found a spare cheapo one i had laying around. Can't see it too much in the pictures but the headlight had some oxidation.

    Here is where it started




    Most of the dirt and grime was on the shock towers, behind the headlights, and under the battery. At one point the battery that was in the car was leaking and corroded the area underneath it.







    Here's some pics when i had it torn apart






    The bumper support was pretty dirty so that was cleaned and painted as you will see in the finished pics

    Thanks
    Used 2 rags, and a bottle of heavily diluted purple degreaser. Took a while but it got the job done.
    Still gotta take a pressure cleaner to the engine, lots of dirt and grime under the coil brackets but i'm happy with it for now

    Looks good man. I'm afraid to take the front fascia off like that, afraid I'll find a rabid raccoon or a pack rat, something stupid to go along with my broke ass power steering and my broke ass ankle But, I digress. You did a great job bringing that car's potential out.

    I found a socket, twix wrapper, and a subaru ad that was ripped out of a magazine. No pack rats
    Thanks for the compliments!
