As usual, more good work Joel!

On the B pillar gussets, will you have the corners of the cutouts rounded to avoid cracking?

Otherwise they look good!

In Topic: PLEASE HELP!! Swapped turbo from vf34 to td04 and idles rough

Ok, bigger turbo. I didn’t know that was an issue unless you have modified your intake or intercooler. In which case you’d have to go in for emissions testing to pass any engineering.

I’d say that you were pulled over for another reason, then the car got a going over as a result of pervious actions or some lip given to the officers that pulled you over. So what’s the real story?

(I’m curious)

That’s crazy, I thought they left this manifold back with the EJ20 where it originally started. I didn’t know they made one for the EJ25!

How much time do you put into painting? I’m thinking next engine and box in the brumby will cop some paint - but I also don’t want to spend the next year just painting the drive train...

Well on the cruise I was the only old school Subaru there. A current series WRX was the other Subaru in attendance. Other vehicles included MX5s, an MG, TRV, a Porsche or two and I think thats about it.

The brumby did well, even with some pinging. Another club member commented on how well it went too. That was nice as there was nothing left in it to go harder. That and it corners pretty well for what it is.

I managed to snap some glam pics after the rain last week while the paint looked good!

I wish the paint was actually that good all over!

Shes now in the shed for a replacement windscreen, tidying up of some rust spots and ensure under the windscreen rubber is rust free and sealed up properly. Ill also be doing a couple of other bits and pieces.

Cheers

Looks good mate.

It’ll look better once it’s in that clean as engine bay!
