Never really had a build thread for any of my projects just because I don't have enough damn time. Always busy with work and when I'm working on the car I'm usually in a rush so I never have time to stop and take pictures. I hope this time around I can cover most of the progress and keep you guys up-to-date fairly often. I hate it as much as the next person when a build thread goes on forevvveeerrrrr haha.

Background
My last build on here was a 2002 WRX Wagon. Stock 2.0L, e85, FP 68hta, 411whp/407wtq. I loved the car, but I got wind of a good deal on a CTS-V and had a fire sale on the Wagon and sold it with a TON of mods for 8,000 dollars. I lost my ass out on it but it went to a good guy and it stayed pretty much the same as when I sold it to him. Ever since I sold the wagon, I had the urge to get another Subaru. I have owned over 10 and there was never really a time I didn't own one. Fast forward a year, I got tired of my 600whp CTS-V and sold it. Picked up a Yukon XL for a daily and a future tow rig. Now (August 2010) it was time to get something I want to mod/track that is affordable.

A couple of months goes by and early March 2011 comes around and the company I was working for at the time decided that we are going to expand the company to Dallas, TX. This requires me to pack up and head on out. So end of March I pack up my stuff, load up and move to North Dallas. Between work and scouting out new locations I started to fall back into my old roots and wanted to pick up another Subaru. With all the open track days in this state (Texas) I couldn't help but want to get something newer and track-able. Here what I ended up with;



Bone stock 2008 STi. Had set of Rally Armor mudflaps on it and that was it for modifications. I was just happy I could find a stock GRB that wasn't beat to ****. Seems like everyone gets them and does bolt on's without a tune and sells them back to the dealer when they start having problems. Luckily this wasn't the case.

And then it starts

May 2011; Invidia Downpipe, TurboXS Catback, RCE Yellows, Whiteline Endlinks, Whiteline Rear Diff Bushings, Whiteline Rear Subframe Bushings, Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings.







June 2011;
ETS Intercooler, Cobb Intake, Cobb Accessport, Torque Solution Motor Mounts, Torque Solution Pitch Stop Mount, Torque Solution Driveshaft Carrier Bushings, Torque Solution Shifter Bushings, Torque Solution License Plate Delete.

July 2011;ISC Coilovers, Enkei NT03+M's, Dunlop Direzza Star Specs, Vorshlag Extended Studs and Lugnuts, Ferodo DS2500's and GiroDisc 1pc Rotors.

*FIRST PICTURES IS WITH RCE YELLOWS AND THE WHEELS, ABOUT 10 DAYS LATER I INSTALLED COILOVERS*









August 2011; ISC Coilovers came off to be revalved with Penske units and the fluid was swapped out for Amsoil shock fluid, Swift springs were then added to the coilovers. No pictures of the progress, just a picture of the springs is all I have. (SORRY!) Then we built an axleback just for the track, however I find myself dinking around on the street with it





September 2011; This is where things started getting a little out of hand. Pulled the tranny, intake manifold, tgvs, turbo, all of the exhaust, and all of the fuel system. Car is going over a major overhaul right now getting it setup for one last event this season then hoping to hit a bunch of track rentals/open track days before Global Time Attack starts next year, and One Lap Of America. We are looking to compete in both event/series next year.

So this is basically where the build thread is technically going to start off. Below is all the stuff that is happening right now and I will try to update daily!

I'm going to throw some recent pictures below with some information, then from then on out I will post new pictures as I take them.

BELOW IS ALL PRE-BUILD, THIS WAS ON THE STOCK MOTOR

Got the car back up and running after being down for 2 months with a bunch of complications.

Shipped a tig welder down from our Minnesota location to me here in Texas. So I could fabricate some new parts we are going to be releasing for the Scooby market. (Catch cans, chassis specific oil coolers, drop in surge tank systems, etc etc etc) So I welded in my wideband bung, made a bracket for my FPR and a bracket for our turbo because I'm running an external wastegate.

Just fired it up two nights ago and went out last night for a little bit of tuning. At 22psi and still running around 11:1 A/F it feels great. Keeping it a little rich during WOT to burn up this tank of gas so I can fill it up with E85. I'm only going to use pump gas for long trips and such, so I have to get the drivability down with this tank and some mediocre power. I'm not going to dyno on pump gas with our turbo, only e85.

Here is some final pictures of the bay and the surge tank installed. Waiting on some steel stock to come in so I can weld up my catch can and get that PCV hose re-routed properly.













After I get tune it on e85 I'll post up some numbers and video. Then going to put on all my brake stuff that has been sitting around.

Cheers,
Adam

The motor was originally Dual AVCS. I switched to 04-07 STi camshafts because the pickups for the camshaft sensors are the same as 08+. With the exhaust camshafts from the 04-07 not having AVCS this was to make my AVCS delete process easier.

The reason for deleting AVCS is to keep the motor mechanically simple as possible. This motor was built to take a beating, last as long as possible, and be reliable. AVCS and it's required cam gears are just something else that could possibly go wrong. I'm a fan of static cam timing (except when I build Honda's) and I really won't see any ill effects of not having AVCS when it comes to power and low end power. My compression and cam timing will make up for this.

I'll make sure to post some dynographs and data to backup my claims. Even if I'm wrong, I'll still post up what I collected for information so people can choose to not do it if they are debating it, or do it because its beneficial.

Test Fitting The Core


Test Fitting the Piping


IAT Placement For Speed Density


Got everything together and needed to order some parts for my fuel system so I took all my piping, intake manifold, and a few brackets over to www.jnztuning.com for some powdercoating. The color is Candy Teal and it came out PERFECT, I couldn't ask for a better job. These guys are GREAT!



Filled her up with some fluid and turned it over by hand for 5 minutes, then with the key for about 20 seconds. Plugged in the fuel and ignition fuses and fired it up for the first time in 8 months!

This is how the car currently sits. After the video I loaded it up on the trailer and took it to JMFabrications to get the catch can and exhaust built. Will update next week when I head to JMFab and snap some pictures!

For anyone wondering what the "New part number" crank and oil pump I used. These are supposedly the latest part number from Subaru for the next year STi. The part numbers have changed for both the crank and the oil pump. Visually they don't look any different from previous non-nitrated cranks, but according to Subaru it is the latest and greatest. I didn't do any heavy digging into this, I just like to run the latest part number when doing my builds regardless of any revisions they have done. Its new? Great I want it.

I agree about the backroads. When everything is together, I'll drop you a text. Maybe we can drive down to the Tuesday Philly meet together. Shoot me a pm with your cell number.

Thanks for the complements!
