Well first of all this was one of the largest projects I've ever done. Doing an egine swap is fairly large project, but it wasn't too bad. The Block and WRX exhaust actaully we're in my trunk when I drove cross country from WI to CA. That was a crazy drive too. All in all I'm happy with most of the setup. There's still some issues with the coolant lines and heat exposure. I'll be using temp coatings to keep the temps down and a couple other tricks too.

Using the WRX setup is kind of a pain, but I can use PE or STI injectors now and the 18G or similar turbo upgrades available for the WRX. Shimming the control arms took 1 washer on each side which isn't as bad as I thought it would be. The only thing you'll need is the clamps to hold the sway bar from a WRX. I don't have those yet, but the sway bar doesn't need to be changed as far as I can tell.

very nice, hows it running so far?

Why did you have to shim the control arms, i have not followed what you have been planning. Also how did you get the wrx injectors to fit in the intake manifold? Which mani are you using anyways? Sorry to drill you with questions its just a sweet looking setup and i want to steal all your ideas.

I'll be running up to 15 PSI on the TD04L. I'm taking it to I-SPeed soon and they'll be doing all the tuning. I'll have a dyno plot when all done to post. It's only boosting to 5 right now, but I have the MBC set to pull most boost until it's tuned and I may have a leak. I'm still woking out some little things.

I need a new bracket for the swaybar, the other side is fine. The WRX crossmember has a different bolt pattern for the bracket. I can hear it clunking sometimes, but I only driving it short distances for now.

Right now it's running fine, only 5 PSI, but I'll change that soon. I did shim the control arms with 1 spacer, see the pic above. I used the Rev-Lab injector adapters, but I have to bore out my intake manifold and drill out the adapter to make it fit since they we're milled wrong. I'm using the stock EJ25 manifold. Steal away these aren't any big secrets.

Thumbs up Excellent!

Lovely setup man! Enjoy it glad to see it is up and running...

I will be doing the same thing, but I am going to slap in the WRX aluminum control arms.

They do fit, with perfect alignment too. I just don't know why people say they don't fit cause I have seen them on a Old School RS chassis :P.

enjoy man!!!

Cool, when people talk about slop in the arms, I was expecting more than one washer per side.

Thats almost exactly the same as my setup except Im running the stock block. Looks nice. I'm interested to see how the td04 does with 15psi. I am alternating between 6psi and 10psi on mine. Also, Im still using my RS sway bar with the WRX brackets and it works fine. I was planning on getting the WRX sway bar but Im finding I dont really need to. It doesnt make any odd noises or anything. What do you have running off the turbo to the intake?

The HP & Torque should be a little higher than a stock WRX since I have .2L extra displacement. My ET's should be lower too since I'm 500 lighter too, we'll see though.

Yeah, I just need the WRX brackets and everything else should be fine. I've seen some posts about it rubbing or not fitting at all, but mine appears to be fine. Also, someone said that the downpipe won't fit because it's sits to low. Well, mine fits, but the stiock hanges don't line up which isn't that big of a deal.

I think some of this mis-information needs to be cleared up or confirmed. Feel free to ask any questions.
