Impreza WRX STi Plans for a Monster Bugeye

Plans for a monster Bugeye






HISTORY: Hey fellow members this is my first thread and I figured I would introduce my self. I have been a member for about 6 months and have owned my 02 wrb wrx for about the same but a been around subys for a few years now! I just wanted to put my plans out here to be scrutinized. I bought this car from friend who owns a car lot specializing in subarus I bought it with a hole in the block you could stick your fist through little to much nitrous lol.... the car was in pretty rough shape with two large dents in the front passenger fender and rear quarter and some bright green stripes with ghost skulls! so I purchased I 2.0 shortblock and dropped in (wish I would have done a hybrid now) it was stage2 minus any kind of EM when I purchased it. But I have less than 7 in it and im driving it daily now.


AS OF NOW: I have done quite bit of minor stuff to it getting it ready for BIG plans!!! including fixing the two large dents, blacking the headlights, installing a true JDM STI grille, and fixing all the rigged up crap work the previous owner had done. I also installed a Turboxs utec delta about a week ago.


THE PLAN: I know you hear plans all the time but I am kinda a perfectionist maybe a little OCD lol and when I get something in my head a dew it so it will slowly fall together and ill keep this thread updated.


I plan on completely overhauling this car inside and out but ill just put my drivetrain stuff in this thread ill post another thread in the members car thread with everything about the car... Like I said the car is stage two right now with a utec it will receive a turboxs rotated mount gt3076r kit (.63 or .82) aint decided yet. I plan on doing head work as well, injectors and fuel rails and sure brand or size yet and a walbro fuel pump, followed by a WI kit probably a snowperformance kit... and before any of this a 6 speed DCCD... and probably followed by a built STI block lol... please let me know you opinion and suggestions

Sounds like you just need to dive into some in-depth threads concerning some of this so you can make some really good and informed decisions based on cost/budget, time, labor, availability of parts, etc. etc. etc.

It should be a beast one day with those things in mind though, I'll say that.

Let us know how it goes and good luck with the build.

Sounds to me like you're going to need $10-15K in parts and when you're done, you're still going to have a car that's worth about $8000 or it'll be mostly unsellable.

I say go for it. I have easily 15K into mine and I know, it's all money wasted. Fun but, wasted. As long as you go into it knowing you're pissing money away. I'd say have fun.

You are in over your head. Call a reputable builder like Axis, Crawford, Cosworth, Andrewtech, etc. now as you will spend more money pigeon holing parts than buying the right components now.

Yeah do it yourself. Only wannabe's farm out their mods. You have to laugh at all the people driving modded cars that couldn't fix them if their lives depended on it.

you have to ask yourself a few questions.
how much power do i want...this will guide you in a direction.
gt3076r will eat stock 5 speeds not to mention clutches.
and when you do upgrade the tranny & clutch the axles,
brakes and possibly drive shaft are next on the list.

there are so many options..
with the power that their kits puts down. you should
consider brake upgrade..you want to go..but what about the wo.

TurboXS, is usually a good quality part.
if you're going to get their kit. get the whole thing.
mis-matching parts will cost you time.
and we all know time = money.

with anymore specific questions this is what you're
going to get for a reply.

exactly right. The stock wrx tranny will only hold up to 300whp if that. There are gear upgrades but they prob won't be worth the money or be able to hold the power. You should go with an sti trans swap. It will run you around 3-4k. You will have to change axels, hubs, driveshaft, rear diff and prob a few other things. I know there is a pretty decent price difference if you want the DCCD controller or not. I'm in the same position as you are. I am cosidering selling my engine and trans to buy the sti trans swap and then build myself a nice 2.5 or hybird engine. I am also going for the gt30 turbo setup so let me know how it goes with your build as well as prices so I can see where i'm heading......aka a very deep deep hole

turboXS is very reliable parts but also consider perrin, full race,and APS

I know that a gt30 is no monster build in any way but kinda went with my username. I do plan on doing the sti tranny swap with DCCD and the gt30 will be on the 2.0 and prob with meth/water and once that motor krokes over a built 2.5 will be going in its place and a 35r! this will prob take a long time as i will be doing body parts and suspension and brakes and all that good stuff as well just have to go piece by piece

I think you are doing the average build, I dont know if its going to cost 15k maybe 10k if you get everything brand new.... You could prolly just search the built motor section and people are doing or have done the exact same build as you.

ehh this is the only thing i think i ever disagreed with that unabomber said....If you have the resources and are a capable mechanic i believe you should do it yourself. Besides building a car is half the fun of owning a car. i love that at the end of the day i can say it was built not bought. Just make sure you research and dont buy any stupid parts off of ebay. Most of nasiocs vendors can point you in the right direction

coming from someone who has a bugeye with a full sti swap if you are looking at putting in a 6 speed and sti engine make sure you get everything i mean everything. It makes it so much easier and less painfull and the only really way to go bc if you want big power all of your left over wrx parts you dont swap out are going to be the first to fail you. you next question is engine management are you going to rewire your entire car and go drive by wire with your sti set up or stick with your wrx ecu and install a custom cam position sensor and then if you want avcs you need a hydra and a custom set of avcs wires to make them work. i would ask your self if you really want a fast suby or a fast bugeye? buying a sti saves a lot of headaches.
