We successfully installed the TurboXS FMIC kit, the Tomei turbo, and a TurboXS turbo-back exhaust. I hooked up the laptop computer to the ECU for some dyno tuning, and found that I could not reflash the ECU, although other tuning functions were working normally. Weird. We parked the STI in the Mach V showroom and sent the ECU off for some diagnostic investigation.
While the bumper was off I swapped in some blue-er HID bulbs for the headlamps -- the stock ones always looked a little to yellow to me. And then to round out the HID blue lighting up front, we also popped in an HID 9006 kit for the fogs.
