Based on the tub shape, the wheel wouldn't sit right.

Eventually I will make a custom sub enclosure similar to yours.

Done!

Ride improvement so far, but really needs an alignment to tell the full benefit. The front isn't as slammed, rear is a bit lower, much more even looking.

I think they were self contained shock/strut units and there were at least 2 variations, Gary Fisher wagons had them.

Anyhows, the Eibach progressive rate springs I've ran in the past have been awesome...but if the self levelers could be adapted that could maybe be the best of both worlds?
The nivomats are great, but they're all-in-one shock/spring. you can't alter the height without drop-bolts like the volvo guys do.

They double the load limit of the wagon, though!

oh... they're like $500/shock, new. I think I sold my pair for ~$500 when I lowered my gary fisher.

there's a Gary fisher for sale in MD for like $1500 right now...no idea if it still has the nivomats, though.

Jameson, Your wagon is by far one of my favorites. It all just looks so clean. Nice work.

PSA: 255/35/18s fit perfectly on an Eibach equipped Dame. My 245 PSS', two of them were sketchy. I used it as an excuse to try the P4S and keep my sidewall ratio the same for a bit more pothole protection and get some more contact patch.







I am tuned'ish. We were guessing on wastegate springs. Sure enough the one in there was too weak to hold the boost as revs increased. So we fudged it by cranking down on the wastegate rod which was a bit of a bandaid. We saw a peak of 25-26psi at about 3000-3200rpms, but it was down to 18psi at 5500. The goal is 22-23psi peak, and hold from 2500-55500. In a couple of weeks we will put in the 14psi spring instead of the 8lb'er and retune. Once the 93 is dialed in we will tune for the E85 which should net a couple more psi. There is literally 0 missfire from off idle to 6200 in every gear. Nice for a change. Turns out the JZW tune I had was garbage like I thought. It was pig rich(usually he is lean and mean) and the airmass requests were more for a turbo MUCH larger. Glad I paid $500 for a "custom" tune with 3 files, two of which I never received.

I put these on from an NG9-5. I know it's not REALLY an Aero, but for '06 there wasn't such a thing anyway. I have all the things an Aero would have anyway lol.



The Dames have a weak chin, meaning the leading edge of the bumper is soft. I wanted to change that and balance out my rear spoiler. I am not crazy about the idea of a tacked on lip. But I also have seen $2500 invested in mating a DE bumper with a 9-3 Griffin bumper. That looked great, but that's silly money. So lips, we have the TX lip and the Cupra R. I went with the Cupra R after seeing this on eBay as he also has my same rear spoiler. I will install it in the next couple of weeks.

I missed the stereo install at some point. Pioneer Avic something? I have one of those in my Legacy and I like it.

The interior is looking good, I like the contrasting stitching and seat inserts, and I'm jealous of the black carpet.

Getting closer. Put a revised pump tune in. When thats 100% I'll tune on e85 and hit the Dyno. It tq steers something fierce In 3rd. I'd say 330whp/380tq on pump is where it sits now.
