Default just drove my car after 7 months.

so the idle still sucks because a vac leak, and maybe my throttle cable.

and there is still oil leakin somewhere, which sucks cuz when im sittin at a light my idle is bouncy and my car smokes like hell,and everyone is just lookin at me.

but when 4000-4500 kicks in its done with. it rips like a mother, and my HKS sounds more beautiful than i could even want it too.

oh yeah i and turbo spool is loud as hell too with no dp on a 60/63.

I know the feeling. The wrx was out for about 3 months after the tranny broke. First time I drove it I was smilling from ear to ear.

well technically its still not "completed" i still have to at least weld a 90 or 2 on my dp flange for now. but i just started my welding class and i suck *** at it. ive only been doin it for 2 days tho, so maybe next week ill weld it up. i still gotta find that oil leak too. it was less smoke today because alot of the oil burned of, and i hosed it.... but it still leaks a little i think.
