The transmission in on its way to Tim Zimmer at TMZ Performance for a full rebuild! I'm glad progress is finally being made and can't wait to get the car back on the road!

While the transmission is at TMZ, I decided to pick up a part I've been wanting since I had my last Evo... hood struts! I ordered a set of Sokie Tech nitrogen filled struts off of eBay. They installed very easily in about 10 minutes and work perfectly on the factory aluminum hood. Sometimes it's the little things!

^ This is what I need to get around to doing in the DSM. It's on the short list after my MAP sensor install.
Do you have a part number so I can compare these to the ones on the Tuners hood strut thread?

I wish I could put them on my DSM but unfortunately the fiberglass hood is a contraindication. The ones I got for the Evo are Sokie Tech brand, part number D2H9. I paid $64 shipped for the black finish ones. They are made in Taiwan and I had read good things about Taiwanese gas dampers.

I decided to make some more changes under the hood while I wait on the transmission. I've been wanting to upgrade the intercooler pipes for a while, and at the same time I got some inspiration from the WRC Evo's, which had red and blue bits under the hood, on a white engine bay (like mine), as pictured here:

So for mine, I picked up a set of polished intercooler pipes and to go along with them I'll be swapping most of my rubber parts to blue. So far I have already ordered blue couplers on the intercooler pipes, intake pipe, and all the vacuum lines. The valve cover and strut bar will stay red. Also the couplers that attach to the intercooler itself (that can be seen from outside the car) will be red, to go with the Ralliart mud flaps and Brembo calipers. I hope it turns out good. I've never used multiple colors in the same engine bay like this before.
