Default Another WRX

hi guys i havent been on the forum too often recently. Since i sold my sti and bought an s15. Anyway it took about 4 months before i realized how impracticle it is, as there is basically no back seats and the front bar spent just as much time in the shop getting repaired as it did on the car.

I sold it last week so now im now back in a clean as, low km, gc8. It has:

Blac leather interior
3' turbo back
cai
whiteline front strut brace
gfb stealth bov, its not actually too bad
intercooler water spray (but i cant find a water tank)
autometer boost gauge










it does have a check engine light that comes on and off occasionally, so i will pull the codes soon

also it has a bit of shudder usually when down gearing without rev matchin. Thinking its possibly engine or gearbox mounts??

plans

exterior:
fog light covers
bigger scoop
lip
clear indicators
king springs ssl
gd sti rims in matte black
calipers painted matte black
roll guards
black wheel nuts
de-spoiler
debadge rear subaru letters
aftermarket 3rd brake light
jdm sti tail lights
custom number plates

interior:
new boost gauge cup
duracon gear knob
fit my stereo from my last car

performance:
whiteline rear strut brace
replace pod with apexi dry
pod heat shield
gd sti intercooler
td05 20g ( already have)
replace diff back with a cannon intead of muffler
redline gearbox oil
ecu and tune

Looks pretty tidy man.
As for the intercooler spray tank, does it have a twin pump washer bottle on it perhaps?

Looks like it's been kept well. Will be good to see how it goes with the td05.
