    You guys are both awesome - I highly appreciate it. Pretty sure I have a cozy garage to work in for the next bit, but if that falls through I'll give either of you a shout to see if that works. Thank you!

    Woot woot! Heat is hot, blowers blow. Life is good.

    Thanks to everyone that offered up their garages to get this done in!



    The task,



    The work to be done..





    And the wiring.

    When I pulled the HVAC harness from the Forester harness, ANYTHING attached to the radio/HVAC harness I kept on. There's a lot of slack that can be pulled out of this, but I didn't want to touch anything until I knew that it wouldn't somehow effect the heater.

    Now that it's done I'm going to trim down on the excess wiring and get everything tucked away.

    It's pretty cool seeing the different mechanisms work without the dash on - how it transfers heat from windshield/feet/body etc and the combinations there of. That part of the wiring made sense. I still don't quite understand how it changes heat from cold to cool, to hot etc. but it works.



    That's the wiring. Anything highlighted in yellow didn't find a home - yet, but everything is still working just fine.

    Out of this ENTIRE project I think the wiring was my biggest hurdle to overcome. Swapping in an engine is moving one thing to another, reading the wiring schematics is a whole different ball game.

    Well.. that's the majority of the work. I'll put the interior back together... and then for the winter, that's the conclusion of this project. Anything from here on out will be for fun with the exception of a few odds and ends finished up.

    THE END

    Just kidding. Here's my list for the future:

    Exterior:
    Stock wing
    Sideskirts
    Bumper

    Engine:
    Tune, followed by whatever supporting mods needed. Goal is 350AWHP.

    Interior:
    Fiberglass in Defi Gauges.

    This summer the first round will happen for aesthetics - powder coat the wheels, brembo brakes, intercooler piping, manifold and valve covers. While the Brembos are taken apart they'll be rebuilt which is just a natural choice.

    Tune will be done once the Koyo rad is back in - I need to get that pressure tested. Going in at 282AWHP and I feel like there's a lot more room to go.. I'll find out what it's restrictions are to break that 300 barrier and then proceed from there.

    Great update. Nothing is like getting heat from the dash in the winter. :-)
    I know what you mean, it's really cool to see the HVAC works behind the dash, all the damper motor/doors, actuators, all work in unison when you turn the knobs. BTW, that looks like a really nice garage you worked in.

    It was pretty cool. Figured out my Air Mix Actuator isn't working properly - it's either HOT or COLD. No mix currently. I noticed in my wiring I'm missing two things - the sun load sensor and interior temperature sensor. The temp sensor wiring is all there right up to the plug, but no sensor. It works fine, just end up tossing it on low and on the feet and it keeps the interior just about perfect.

    On to the next part, I got a little handy today. Not a huge fan of A-Pillars and the choices out there for my style forester are not great. Started this.



















    Happy I kept the factory clock. Still a bit of tweaking to do, getting a few things painted black etc. Overall I'm pretty happy with it though and it's only going to get better.

    Doing it in the dark, I was happy with the functionality. And when the sunlight came.. still pretty stoked haha. Few things to touch up on but overall I'm happy.

    A few quick snaps tonight,
