everyone thought this was a bad idea i said fuck it!
in this picture you can see a ej22tt in the back of the OBS
this is the first time this OBS has been this close to a TT engine
it took 3 guys to lift it into the back of the OBS, driving to the shop the wheels were rubbing.
when we got to the shop, we had a f'd up time rigging up a broken hoist but we made it work!

To BRZ or not to BRZ That is the question!

Well shit it is that time of the year again when all our favorite auto company's show us pictures of cars that we would give our left nut for! here it is the....... 2014 Subaru BRZ STI

Below is someone else's explanation  trying to find evidence to back this up...
Boxer engine, Rear-wheel drive and Zenith

In general terms, the zenith is the direction pointing directly "above" a particular location; that is, it is one of two vertical directions at the location, orthogonal to a horizontal flat surface there. The concept of "above" is more specifically defined in astronomy, geophysics and related sciences (e.g., meteorology) as the vertical direction opposite to the net gravitational force at a given location. The opposite direction, i.e. the direction of the gravitational force is called the nadir. The term zenith also refers to the highest point reached by a celestial body during its apparent orbit around a given point of observation.[1] This sense of the word is often used to describe the location of the Sun, but it is only technically accurate for one latitude at a time and only possible at the low latitudes.

part 2 speedometer cable install pictures and video

 Installation Of Speedometer Cable Adapter
Should it become necessary to remove and install the speedometer cable adapter from the
transmission on all Legacy and Impreza vehicles equipped with 4EAT, make sure the rubber
gasket and the metal flat washer beneath the adapter are also removed. These parts normally
will stay attached to the adapter but sometimes may break loose and stay in the case.
If you fail to remove them and you are installing a new transmission in the vehicle, these
missing parts may cause the speedo gear shaft to bind, possibly resulting in stripped speedo
drive gears. However, if you are replacing just the adapter, be certain that the old rubber gasket
and flat washer are removed since the new adapter comes with these parts attached. If the
new adapter is installed on top of the old parts, it may not engage the shaft properly.
When tightening the adapter, caution should be taken not to overtighten it.
The following procedure is recommended when installing the unit.
Hand tighten the cable adapter until it bottoms out.
Using a wrench, tighten the adapter by rotating it clockwise 45 to 90 degrees.
No additional tightening is required.
