Little update...

There were some minor hiccups with getting the Sti out of here but Monday or Tuesday she'll be gone. Unfortunately nobody was home to receive the delivery for the down pipes so if it gets missed again I'll just go pick them up, but they are at least here. Still waiting to hear back about the wrap and tint but that will also likely happen this week. Everything is all paid for, just waiting on the vinyl to get in and then I'll get it done.

However, in the mean time, I thought to myself I should probably have a passenger to enjoy the ride with me. I've been on the search for a dog for a while and I finally found a great match. Meet Bane:



Stay tuned folks, with the Sti going things should start unfolding quite nicely

Monday morning update:

So this weekend I installed the AA Downpipes. The are packaged really well, fast shipping, and a great looking part. They also fit very nicely.


Now, onto the fun stuff. So the o2 sensors are kind of a pita. I just unhooked them up top and underneath and dragged the oem downpipes out o2 sensors and all. I then reinstalled the o2 sensors into the appropriate downpipe and installed the new AA downpipes. Went it smoothly, v-bands are kind of a pain but whatever. Now I have an issue that I think I have the solution to but so far the headache is still there.

I have misfires in cylinders 1-3 with other o2 related codes. Here are the codes: (These are read by an OBDII reader with the jb4 off)

P0301 --> Misfire cyl 1
P0302 --> Misfire cyl 2
P0303 --> Misfire cyl 3
P0305 --> Misfire cyl 5
P0136 --> Oxygen Sensor Malfunction (Bank 2, Sensor 1)
P2197 --> Lean o2 sensor bank 1 and 2? (This one I couldn't find a definitive answer)

So, I talk to the dealer just to go over things and ask about the o2 sensors and connectors. They tell me that the bottom o2 sensors can plug into each other. False. The connectors can not and will not connect because they are indeed different. Next time I have it on a lift I'll snap pictures to prove that. I am thinking the dealer thought I was talking about the o2 sensors themselves and in that case yes, they can each screw into any of the 4 holes. That is true. However, I am positive that the o2 sensors are in the correct physical place.

The last thing to check are the upper o2 connectors underneath the engine cover. However, I didn't see a way that these could possibly be flipped around because one was quite a bit longer than the other, however, I wouldn't be surprised if I could flip these around.

All codes and such happened as soon as the new downpipes were put in so a coincidence in that the injectors/plugs/pump are an issue at the exact same time the downpipes went in (at least in my head) are very slim. Those would be the next place to go in the even the misfires continue.

Any of you technically inclined out there have any ideas? I think I am on a fair path to approach this. I vowed to never seriously modify a vehicle again after the subaru and just with the downpipes I'm already second guessing where I want to go as far as performance with the car. I'll probably call it a day after the jb4/downpipes and a big maybe on the fmic. Just want to get this figured out.

And all is well now. The top o2 sensors got plugged in the wrong way around. It is still a little weird because the way the were originally run doesnt work this time around. But, the car runs great again just from switching those back around.

Pretty interesting at what a difference it will make with those switched around.


Pictures coming friday or saturday with tints and some roof attention!

Haha and now back to your original plans of modding the hell out of it lol. Naw but I understand bro that can be pretty scary. When I had my dp installed the other week for awhile we couldn't even find where the top o2 sensor plugged into under all those covers and plastic an crap. But finally did. Thank goodness I have an n55 so couldn't couldn't mix up which plug it went in as I only have 2 sensors 1 up and 1 downstream.

Still not great washing weather up here, I will get pictures eventually I promise.

Furthermore, today I put in an e85 mix and started running map 5. This is the way to go if you have a jb4 and e85 accessable. I need fat sticky tires

Update

So, plans have changed. I went from having that heavily modified subaru to wanting to do this as well. After driving the 1 for a bit on downpipes, intakes, jb4, and an e85 mix I am happy.

Instead of dumping a ton of money into it that I wouldnt get back later I instead decided to pick up a second car. A 2009 Black on Black C63 AMG.

However, I'll still have the 1 and could still do things down the road. I'll get a little photo shoot sometime of the two cars though once it gets in.

Sorry for the let down on the big plans for the 1, at least for now.
