Very awesome thread, makes me want to get motivated to keep pushing myself with mine... Though i need to save up to begin with!

Out of curiosity, I found I'm slowly running into the issue you had with the car not starting right away, It's been rare, but i've had it where I'll start, drive around, stop, then next time I try to start it, it won't go till I almost force it. Maybe my fuel pump is doing the same?

All in all, again, awesome build!
Oh! Good to hear then...

You may want to consider checking your battery first, maybe even the alternator to make sure it's charging. If your fuel pump's original, it may be tired by now. The OEM one doesn't flow as much compared to other Subaru's; that can be upgraded too...

It could also be normal. Our Subaru's (and pretty much the only ones) came with a 60A alternator. There's the option of upgrading to a 90A alt from another Subaru which will help keep the battery topped up a bit better...
