We did the timing belt, the tensioners were fidget spinners in terms of spinny ability. OEM radio installed, decided to get a 2001 forester 6 disc in dash+tape, Friend of mine is really into tapes and convinced me to keep it so he can make mix tapes for me, plus aux adapter via tape works just fine imho. I have yet to install the new window gussets and new speakers, waiting for a warmer day to do that. We're going to be doing the front brakes later this month, and fixing the missing splash guard, need to get it up in the air for my tools to get on it. Friend that is helping me with it has a spare EJ251 head set, and will be sending it to be machined, he will port and polish it himself and get it professionally machined so we can do the head gasket upgrade a lot easier, and potentially more performance. I also upgraded the shifter knob to the later WRX style one, it has a base on it that the doughnut of the OEM leather shift boot fits on perfectly, no zip ties needed. Will be looking into what options my car is pre-wired for, i am already upgrading to variable intermittent wipers.
