    Still looking for an mp3 ecu or someone to flash mine, I'm using part numbers
    FS9N-18-881
    FS9N-18-881B
    FS9N-18-881C
    But nothing is popping up damnit, all I get is the sedan ecus and the pro5 ecu, or rx7 and miata computers for some reason
    Sunburst 02 pro5 200k+ miles
    Mystery 4-1 header, mystery short ram, moog control arms, moog front endlinks, moog tie rods, moog trailing links, tein lowering springs, gutted interior
    All about them stickers, crumpled panels, and mismatched paint yo

    Damn, 300 bucks shipped to you? Must be nice to have that luck and have the space! I would love both lol

    Have you checked any of the facebook groups for an MP3 ECU? It seemed like after I got mine, there was an explosion of availability for that thing.

    And it's a smart move to want to learn how to drive your car under hard performance settings stock--too many people forget that's how your develop real skills. However, if you ever find yourself wanting for some turn-in and roll reduction, hit me up. I got a spare Racing Bear rear swaybar asking for some use! Although, I might paint it first. Looks a little rough.

    Super lucky, but I dont really have space, I'm just gunna stip it in my driveway and have someone tow it off when I'm done. My garage is gunna be packed full but hopefully I'll still be able to walk around it. I've gone through facebook a couple times and I cant find anything, it's also been about 3 years since I've been on there so I might have missed some search settings or something. I would love to get that sway bar off you but with my parts list and the donor car coming in, paired with the baby I'm a bit strapped for cash for probably the next 6 months. I'll let you know if I get some spare cash for it.

    If he can make it through the maze! I'm kinda thinking of swapping all the blue doors and the bumpers and hatch on yeller, not sure how ricy that would look. Kinda going for a rally inspired look to it, yellow and blue are some classic schemes in the early rally cars, lol especially Subarus.

    Well lots of small updates, I have a pretty big leak in my rear hatch, bottomed out twice, and bent a trailing arm. Had a puddle in my spare tire so I pulled the rubber caps for some drainage, still gotta find the leak though. Bottomed out at the jobsite it the rocks and then again in tacoma doing 40. I think the latter did the damage, now I have a nice bounce and it's probably a wheel bearing. My right rear trailing arm I just installed is bent out and up as the back passenger side sits half an inch higher. Good stuff, hopefully the parts car has a decent one. Gotta get a new jack and check the bearings and tires, last time it bounced like this there was a bubble in my tire. Well no time to fix as the work truck is down with a bad fuel pump, we are stuck on broken bed bolt tabs. Bout ready to cut em haha damn fords

    I just cut a little notch in the caps for drainage, I didn't want dust blowing in.
    I don't care where the water is coming in as long as it goes away. Lol

    Check your left and right wheel well areas where your jack is.
    I had water in there too.
    I just drilled holes to drain the water, then when they rusted out, I stuffed an oil-soaked rag n the hole. Lol

    Hopefully, it's the rear bearings if it is bearings. They're a lot easier to replace.
