Talking I've been a BUUUUUSY Digital Boy the last few days...

Well, first off, a hearty HOO-RAH! to the USMC for graciously letting me use the auto hobby shop at MCAS Miramar and letting me store my car there while I go through my madness... I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

First, out with the old:

Dangly EJ25

Albert's Rally Blue 98 in the background.

Two Subies in the dusk

And strip a few essential parts off of it that I'll need later, like, for instance, cylinder heads...

It looks so, naked!

To make way for the new (Hi Alan! Smile for the I Club!):

Pardon me, but would you have any Grey Poupon?

I'd like a burger with a side of fries please, no wait, make that a side of O Rings !!

Slugs and rings.

Here's a shot of the Crower rods:

Pretty damned tight fit in there.

Edit: For the bandwidth impaired, I didn't shrink these at all from their majestic 1600X1200XBillyunsandbillyuns of colors, so I made them links instead. If you're 56K'in, click a link, and go get some coffee.

Default It's Beautiful!!

Wow, I'm dreaming of being in your shoes in the near future. What's in the engine you're dropping in, who built it for you and how much did everything cost? (itemized!)

Thanks!

Joel

okay, last post before I crash. I still have to be at Miramar tomorrow @ 0900 to start the final prep and reinstallation of the built block back into the car...

Alan can build something very much like that block for around $3500 or so. I'll ask him tomorrow for a breakdown of what costs what. The crank is knife edged and balanced, tho they're pretty nicely balanced from the factory, and there's not that much meat on the counterweights to begin with, so you can't cut them up much.

Unforeseen circumstances prevented us from completing this portion of the build up as planned (I had planned on it being drivable at least by Thursday), but things are rolling along quite nicely now. After this, it's off to the fab shop for an equal length T-341 stainless header, then the turbo goes in, then the Motec with baseline maps, and when scheduling permits, a trip to the dyno and a certain gent from Motec USA's tender ministrations to the maps for the fine tuning.

The pieces are all starting to come together now. The months and months of gathering info are set to pay off!

Sounds great! An itemized list, including all of your sources would be really, really helpful for me. I'm without wheels until my car is back up and rolling so shortening the gathering phase will really help. I'm thinking about buying a cheap-o car to get me by so I can do this Subie build-up right and not be pushed for time. Mmmm.... I'm excited!!

Thanks!

Joel

I'm assuming those are JE pistons and came from ASR?

Also, did you do any head work before this? From what I understand, the intake cams flow so-so on the DOHC engines, though the exhaust cams flow well already.

Also, I'm about to PM you a couple of questions.

Currently, I'm leaving the heads alone. That's another step down the road after the car is sorted out and dialed in. The underlying philosophy here is to get the engine tuned and dialed in with a beefy shortblock and top drawer management first, then optimize more as driver skill and funds allow. I'm already thinking down the road to a FMIC, ported heads, bigger cams and honed intake manifold, but for now I'm leaving the intake tract more or less stock, aside from a big honkin turbo, that is.

I'm not sure if the MY98 DOHC intake manifold has a different bolt pattern than the SOHC, as I don't have a 99+ SOHC intake to compare with. I can take a pic of the mating surface tomorrow, though, so you can do a "stare and compare".

8C, yes, ASR supplied the whole shortblock assembly, case, rods, pistons, o rings, the whole shootin match. The shortblock has been ready for quite awhile already, as the pieces to make it are off the shelf, and don't require custom fabrication like up and downpipes. So Alan can get good turn around times on things like that.
