Lets see, nothing to the car directly but bought an adjustable sway bar, brake pads and coilovers for the NA6, and bought a can for each of the cars of this Subaru Upper Engine Cleaner everyone here is raving about at the moment.

Default emmmmmmmmmmm let me think!!

8.30 off to the dyno and fart **** around until 11.30, outcome = equal hp to front runner 1.8 but toooooo close to the edge, so backed off and added 5% fuel and now ready for 1 hour race next month.
Rebuild front shock and reset corner weights and string up.
Fitted rain light and wired up to demister switch, now waiting for LED flasher can.
Then this morning wash and polish, fitted race wheels and Toyos ready for Prodsport Corporate day on Friday ( which I will miss ) so my co-driver, Geoff can get use to the car ($35 for half day ) Now I,ve just measured up for signage and emailed to signman.
So busy couple of days, but fun.

Pics to follow if it stops raining.

Fixed a coolant leak. Then I rubbed my bloody finger (firewall is naughty!) along the diameter of the tail pipe.

Today I drove it home.

On the weekend however... pulled out the dash of the NA8 and put in new 2nd hand carpets and dash, AWD aircon panel, and swapped over the fun interior toys that were on the NA6.

Mounted Kirkey aluminum racing seat in passenger side to match driver's side

Removed soggy felt padding under passenger front carpet area.

Installed FM front sway and 949Racing adjustable endlinks

Finally adjusted headlight doors so that they were even with the hood at their trailing edge. For some reason I've put that off for YEARS.
