Nice build!

Matt, out of interest, did the MY08 Libs suffer the same big end issues as the Foz and WRXs?

Same boost as before, it just had to work a lot harder to get there and ran richer ;) Thats why it flys now ;)

Yeah, I know the stock tunes on the STi libs suck haha, but I was referring to the infamous MY08 WRX and Foz big end bearing issues... Did the Libs of that era suffer the same issues?

So it took me 4 hours to install the turbo inlet....
And now I need some zip ties to hold the vacuum lines on.

6 small gashes later and its on properly! I hope...
No cel and it pulls a little harder so that's a good start!!! Right??
