Re: My project Saabaru

Top tip, if you ordered the STI coilpacks but still have WRX heads (not familiar enough with your build) be sure to swap the rubber sleeves on them as the WRX ones are a bit longer.

Re: My project Saabaru

The car now has a JDM STi ver 7 motor, fortunately, many usdm parts are 100% compatible. I ordered 2002-03 wrx coil packs, they should be the correct part. Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it.

Re: My project Saabaru

As it turns out I failed to recognize that the NGK BKR7EIX plugs I installed on my swap are the same heat range as Subaru sends on the ver 7 motor from the factory. I've been using those same exact plugs for years thinking they are a step colder, and they are on the ej205. Thru Nasioc it came to my attention that I need BKR8EIX for a step colder on the ver 7 motor. I have a set coming in to install along with the new coil packs. I also realize I made the mistake of having Marvel Mystery Oil in the gas tank last tuning session, dope. Also taking the car to a Subaru performance shop on Long Island to get a legitimate boost and exhaust leak test. I've done the soapy water test, never found leaks but I want to be 100% sure. I also plan on taking the Deatschwerks injectors out and installing Injector Dynamics before going for another tuning session. I hope that will be the wining combination and my stars are in full alignment by then.
