    Re: 2014 Subaru WRX build

    Received some gear today, got in the CDT mids and some deadener from Jim and the knu Krystal RCA's came in the mail. Will be installing soon and pictures will follow shortly.

    I did in fact get something accomplished today. I installed my new Defi boost and oil pressure gauge in the SMY gauge pod, it was a pain in the arse but it is done! Here's a couple of pics of the final product.

    I agree, Defi is definitely great stuff. I'm really happy with the way everything turned out, it was a pricey project (just shy of $600) but in my opinion required.

    Yeah I think I paid like $150 for each of mine. But definitely required in a higher performance boosted vehicle if you want it to last. So much can go wrong in a boosted vehicle that you need to keep check on

    Re: 2014 Subaru WRX build

    Here some of the gear so far, will start install on Saturday.

    CDT ES-02


    Road Kill


    CDT mids




    Thinking of mounting the ES-02's here, does anyone think the slight downward angle will be a significant disadvantage? If so I might make some custom kick pods.

    I tried to solder but the wires on the pioneer were to thin, when I got enough heat to melt the thin solder I was using it melted the insulation as we'll. Perhaps the solder gun I have is a bit heavy for the small jobs, it's a big ol blue point solder gun. I always add shrink tubing to connectors for good measure.
