    Look for Hindsight's "Limited slip installation instructions with pics" . It goes through the 5 speed rebuild VERY thoroughly. I have a saved pdf version of the thread on my website in "My Advice"...

    Yeah, the access to the rear I was unsure about. I made this design but haven't given a closer look at the mounting points yet to see if they'll work with the seat in place. I could modify the mounts...

    Custom Seat Brackets

    So, I'm working a solution for mounting my Corbeau A4 seats and this is what I've come up with: 100796

    In the current design, the mounting tabs will bolt/rivnut into the floor crossbars. All the...

    That's good to hear because that's what I was thinking. I watched the AFR's via OBII on the Torque app (I don't have an actual wideband installed) and they didn't seem crazy rich. I got a ECU (third...

    After installing a new passenger-side cylinder head, the car runs!

    The low idle is pretty rough and lumpy. I'm not sure if my slightly larger STi injectors are causing this or if I should be...

    Well, I guess I'm past the hard part then! I've already removed the timing covers and cam sprockets so I could pull out the passenger side exhaust cam. It was made simpler since my car is not...

    Swapping a head in the car?

    Has anyone tried to replace a head with the engine still in the car? Is there enough room to do it?

    My passenger side head encountered a few issues during the first start and the exhaust cam and...

    To my knowledge, other people using the aluminum arms have not had this problem (I'm using the steel ones so I can't really weigh in personally). So either the aftermarket arms you have are somehow...

    Definitely some great info on here, I hadn't seen this thread before. The only thing I think should be mentioned as something to consider avoiding is that deleting the Evap stuff can cause a gas...

    818C Performance Metrics

    I've been curious how the 818C compares to the other 818 models and similar vehicles when it comes to on-track performance. It's heavier, raises the CG, but it also improves aero drag by enclosing...

    That splitter would be awesome if you plan to go to pikes peak! How did you make all the threaded ends for the adjustable tubes? My college competition team has done these frequently using a lathe,...

    Pretty sure the answer to that question is none of them can be used. Too many suspension, powertrain, and chassis changes were made for anything to carry over. You can use the STI engine since it's...

    So...I got a little bored and decided to work on the car virtually while I was away from it. Created some Martini vinyl ideas!

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the reason why they don't offer an adapter is because of the DCCD center differential and the way the oil pump is designed on 04-05 STI. There's some...

    No difference in the booster, but the NC Miata uses a shared clutch/brake fluid reservoir. The Subaru WRX uses a separate reservoir for the clutch master cylinder. So for any 818, manual or auto, you...

    That's actually a fantastic find! If you get the JDM right-side port version then you've solved all of the fitment issues. It's certainly still a tight fit, but the ports will be fully accessible. I...

    I like the post-build update! Information is actually really scarce as far as the driving and ownership experience of a finished build unless you talk to people in person. Seems most people only come...

    I'm very curious how all of this was made, it looks amazing! I have some pre-preg carbon fiber that I haven't put to use yet. How did you mold and create the carbon pieces?

    If you're ok with a non-staggered diameter, Avanti Storms are available in 17" with the right offsets on TireRack. They're significantly cheaper and I'm strongly considering them. The TS9 are sweet...

    I think only way you could be sure would be to take the risk and buy the components for fitment. It's always a gamble with this kind of stuff.
