No pictures yet, but I'm getting some seat brackets coming in Thursday and will be installing my Evo Recaro seats I got from a friend.
I'll post pictures when I get them installed.
Haven't been really getting any new parts, except for stuff needed to install my Evo seats.
A friend is sending me a Cobb axle back here pretty soon and i'll have that installed shortly. Pictures of that should be up when I get that on.

Man.... I haven't updated this in a couple months.... :(
Not that most people on here care?? :-?

Anyways.... Here's some updates.
Sorry for the large pictures.

Mmm Defi boost gauge:
Image

Got my seat brackets to install my Evo Recaro's.
Image
^^
Square tubing to space the seat and the rails up so the slider would work.
It still sits lover than my stock seats.

Installed!!
Image
^^
Doesn't match the other interior pieces, but I plan on wrapping the door cards in black, swapping the rear seats to black ones, wrapping the headliner in suede or something, and painting the gray pieces black.

Installed my STI lip on the car.
Image
^^
I used some stainless hardware to mount it to my bumper. It's off a tad on one side but you can't really tell. *doh*

Plasti-Dipped my wheels white to see how my car looked with them on.
Image
^^
I was parked on an incline at work.

New DBA T3 slotted brake rotors, EBC red brake pads, and Greddy carbon fiber hood dampers.
Image
^^
Sorry for my messed clothes piled in the back.... *doh*

Rotors installed.
Image

Finally installed my STI intercooler tank, it's not hooked up.
Image
^^
Made a custom bracket to hold it in place, need to make a spacer, buy a STI timed relay, intercooler sprayer button.

That's it right now. Brakes feel amazing, no more shuddering feedback when braking hard.
I currently have knocking strut mount.... So coilovers are next on the list. :D
But at the same time I would like to get my downpipe, and install my intake, STI TMIC. Decisions, decisions!!!

I'll update later on my progress.

Here's a long overdue update.....
Image

When I got my new wheels, I need them to be checked since I was losing air. I guess the tire bead wasn't sitting properly on the wheel.
This what happens when you use the wrong tool to take the center caps out:
Image

This is what happens when you get some new free ones:
Image

This is what my engine bay looks like now:
Image

Engine bay consists of: Beatrush forged pitch stop, STI TMIC wrapped in gold reflective gold, Cobb intake and box, ARC pulley cover.
Suspension consists of BC coilovers with a finger gap at each wheel.
Wheels consist of 18" Volk LE37T's, 17" WedSport SA-90's.

At IFO:
Image

Here with the WedSports:
Image

Here's my baller forged pitch stop:
Image

Here's my APR FPR rear diffuser:
Image

As of right now I'm in the process of getting a 3 port boost solenoid, 3" downpipe, 255 fuel pump and a tune.
Also on the agenda is some ARP extended wheel studs, Project Kics lug nuts, and some spacers to bring the Volks out alittle further flush with the fender.
Currently I'm in the process of make some brackets for my retrofit for my RX330 AFS projectors for the Subie. I've been out of the HID world for way too long and I've been deprived of the great lighting from HID projectors.
I'll try to post up pictures of the brackets and when I finish the retrofit.
