Hmm guys I have installed the 2.4 quick rack (JDM).

When I get it back on the road I will see if I have any issues. Am I guaranteed to have issues?

I will follow this thread closely. I may have to jump in on the Mini GB?

Cheers Al

I'm not sure about 'guaranteed' but most likely you will have an issue. Only some of the US WRXs have not had an issue and most of who do have an issue seem to just either pull the fuse out or unplugged the steering angle or yaw sensor.

He's happy to make more but it would be more or less the same pricing, as it's time consuming and reasonable.

Hi all,

A bit more progress (and an update).

Last week, I replaced the QFM HPX brake pads with Intima SR's. I did not find anything wrong with the HPXs, even on track but I wanted to try something else. Colin from DC Jap suggested I should give these a try. So I installed these, flushed and installed new Penrite racing brake fluid for the upcoming track day. As you can see below, the fronts were getting low and the rears still had a bit left in them. Comparison wise, the Intima pads have less contact area initially until approx. half-way of their life due to the taper that they have; whereas the HPXs have the same contact area.

I never have cleaned my wheels so I thought it would be a good to do so :lol: you can see that the wheels are actually gunmetal, and not bronze as many think!

In the mean time while hired-goon makes the Arduino for the steering angle sensor, I unplugged the steering angle sensor yesterday so the VDC does not kick in during normal turns; could be potentially dangerous if you ask me. With it disconnected, only two lights come on the dash: the no traction control and hill-start. I took it for a quick drive and no more VDC!

The last time I had the rear lifted up, I noticed that the rear sway bar was actually touching the exhaust. The sway bar was installed when I still had the stock exhaust so it probably did not touch back then. The text/sticker on the bar is also in the right alignment (if you use it as a reason). Anyway, the engine was too hot (it was 35deg yesterday) to install my oil pressure sender so I decided to fix this sway bar and flip it. A bit of swearing later, I pulled out the air hose and impact wrench. I was so glad I bought the compressor and bits last year - probably should have bought it many moons ago and saved some pain/sweat/tears :lol:

Today being a lot cooler, I attempted to install the oil pressure sender again (the second time). Failing last time, I got some braided hoses and fittings this time around with some thread sealant.

If you did not notice, I went from 1/8" BSPT to -6AN, -6 to -4AN and then hose. The Speedpro shop did not have 1/8" BSPT male or female to -4AN fittings. The fittings were the same on the sender side of the hose too.

I installed all the fittings (keeping the OEM pressure sensor too) and ran the hose around the left side of the engine to underneath the TMIC location. There is M6 (assumed) threaded hole above the pitch stop mount. I will use this threaded hole with a 35mm U-clamp to clamp and mount the oil pressure sender. I almost could not get the alternator belt back on. Heaps of swearing did the trick (that is a lie..) Here are the photos.

What is left remaining to do is:
- Install the oil temperature sensor into the rear galley plug
- Install the Innovate MAP sensor into the vacuum line of the BOV
- Get the oil pressure sender, oil temp, MAP sensor and O2 sensor wiring through the firewall and connect to gauges
- Wire up gauges

A bit to do in two weeks.. the track day is coming up really fast.

Thanks for looking,

Cheers, Pete.

Nice work Pete. Report back on the Intima pads and any difference to QFM.

I hope the rest of the sensor installs go smoothly.

Better deny it or Tobyo will go all "Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket" on you :shock:

Love your work Pete!

Great info all round.

Thank you particularly for the photos and information on the sensors locations and identification of the fittings and your install.

Question, has anyone used the very lower forward facing gallery plug (not the one your using, that I will use for the Oil Pressure) for placement of sensors ie Oil Temperature sensor?

I am waiting for my Racetech Gauges and there sensors to arrive hopefully later this week. to see what sensors can go where.

As for "mean time while hired-goon makes the Arduino for the steering angle sensor" keep up the info for us there too!

Cheers Al

Thanks gents, I will let you know how they go on the track (and on road afterwards).

Thanks mate. And yes, unless you count quickly squirting it with water from time to time? :lol:

Thanks Al, happy to share the info around. Which galley plug are talking about? Do have a photo or can point it out in one of photos earlier?

He's going to make it for me soon. Cost wise, it depends what you want and how much time it takes him.
