no because you cannot mesh T5 and Pole... too much of a "stretch" if you said "waxed my rocket" that would have been better

What are you raising it to?? I'm just throwing the MBC wide open. (Worse case, the ECU will get pissed and fuel-cut, but the tune should fix that.) I'm really interested to see how far that 15G can

Started it. Drove it.

over last week or so, swapped tinted windows from paRts car into 850, installed meyle hd control arms, sway links, tie rod ends ...  swapped/cleaned throttle body with new gasket and arm (fixed CEL), just need to run it through emissions now and go get the rear tinted and new tires installed...  I think I will try and fit the EST dual exhaust I have to my wagon and put the super sprint on the 850 at some point also ...  I have more suspension goodies, TME + Koni yellow for front, eibach + bilstein hd for rear, but I may hold off on lowering until spring...

Back in 05 my brother made a Carputer. He molded a touch screen to the stereo surround in ordered to retain the stock mounting. It's a bad picture but you can barely make out the little spring loaded handles. It looked awesome in person and worked very well. I miss it, but what I don't miss is that old dash flopping around. It was solid while he had it, but after a few years the lack of support down there started to make itself known. I wish I had more pictures of it while the car wasn't half apart.

Digging what you're doing with this one. Looks good. :tup:

thanks!  I'm having a weird issue fitting mudflaps cuz of the front end swap, I guess I could just leave them off..  I either need to put the XC sideskirts on or paint some x70 ones red I guess... I think I'd prefer the latter .. I think I could make the 850 ones work still but one of mine is MIA !

more 850 stuff today - new oem plugs, wires, cap, rotor and air filter.   did fuel filter a few weeks ago already, about to go back in the garage and do both front wheel bearings, also just applied first coat of liquid electrical tape to the abs pump wires, I thought they only needed to be touched up in one spot but the whole sheathing basically disintegrated in my hand!

I started my T-5R for the first time since November 11.  It felt good.  I was going to take it for a ride around the neighborhood to see if I notice a difference with the new plugs, but the trip computer said I had ---- miles → 0 and decided that running out of gas at 19° would be even less fun than spending 4 hours changing my spark plugs at 28°.......so I came back in and got on VS instead lol.

Pretty sure I found my coolant leak!!! My overflow tank has a hairline crack in it that runs above and below where the 2 halves are glued together. I'll order a new one and a new cap as well. Still can't upload pics from my phone or I'd post a pic of it.
