Well my wife was able to sew in the alcantara in the seat bottom cushion this week so now I have to take the seat back off. She did a great job! The seams look a little saggy in the photos but that is because it hasn't been stretched and hog ringed yet.

Ill be taking the seat back apart this week and then putting everything all back together when my hog rings and hog ring tool recommended by JPM coachworks gets too me this week. Here are a couple of teaser pics

Latest edition....seam ripped the tweed out and sewed in matching blue alcantara.

My wife did the sewing for me by making a pattern off the tweed fabric and then just sewed it back together

 

Bottom cushion installed now for the top

Nice sleeper! Well done. I'm on my way to doing something similar to my 2005 Outback XT but I'm not as savvy. I ran into the previous owner of my car and he was telling me he pulled the chip out before trading it in and that without it the timing is off and causes premature failure of the rings. He said he made some sort of adjustments to the 4th cylinder and I think the access port but I'm not 100% what.

 

So my question is, should I chip it and where can I find the one I need?

 

Thanks!

Im installing the DCCD next week or as soon as it gets here and then me and a subaru buddy are putting the tranny in using a lift at his shop.

 

Motor was done by Cobb Plano but I did pretty much everything else.

There is no chip in a subaru. Unless he used some sort of aftermarket hypertech type thing that I have never heard of for a Subaru.

You need a Cobb AP for your year a car and then you can flash it to stage 2.

Im not sure what the previous owner is talking about.

 

http://www.cobbtuning.com you would need the 2005 legacy GT Access Port

Awesome ride - Very tasteful upgrades with some definite results that I'm sure put a smile on your face and a frown on those you leave behind !

Are you doing the work yourself? Or having a shop do it? Im a lil jealous of you... cause your doing or have done most of the stuff that Ive been wanting to do.

 

Yea Ive done everything myself to this car.

 

The new motor going in will be done by Cobb.

 

The transmission is going in by me and a Subaru mechanic friend that has access to the shop and the lift on the weekends.

 

We will be doing that together.
