Pulled the motor and installed the KEP flywheel and stage 2 Sach PP/clutch. Nice quality although I thought it would have included a clutch centering tool. Luckily I had a trans I had torn apart for the gears and just used the main shaft lol.









IC plumbed. Planning on a Turbosmart Plumb back BOV and that will go between turbo and IC. got some 2.5" tubing to start down pipe. gonna have to be a short muffle though

I don't know if you've found an answer already, but Turbosmart offers adapters for Subaru fuel rails to -AN. See here. I don't see any details on what size -AN it uses, but I imagine if you give them a call they can tell you. I've seen similar generic bits on ebay, but again they don't say what size threads they convert to. It looks pretty small, but it might be -6AN.

fancy seeing you here too trying to keep both treads up to date. I'd love to participate in the group by for the gears but not in the budget currently. good luck getting 4 more.

Pat
Awesome, I'll give Marty a call tomorrow and see what he has. I am currently set up to use the stock FPR but I have an Aeroquip unit I used the last time and would like to reuse if possible.

just a little update:
Brian Keene, aka iWire, came up to help me with my stripped down harness. he worked his magic on the harness to clean up/shorten/lengthen/omit/add/massage/...well you get the picture. came out nice





but before, we popped it in and connected the absolute basics to prime it then fired her up. sounds rough but only the basics to run (no WBO2, no MAF, no alt, no nothing) and she fired up on the first try!


no on to EVERYTHING else. feels good at least to know she runs

moss, you should do it. its actually been pretty straight forward ... so far. the radiator is still vexing me. with in front of the rear wheels at a diagonal or in front for the front wheels which would be best for cool air and better weight distribution but running the lines is gonna be a pita. what are you gonna put it in?

Sadly I don't have the money or garage space to take on this type of endeavor quite yet.

If I did, I'd probably look into an EJ255/257 or whatever could be sourced at a decent price. Are there any 6spds that could mate up to the EJ257? I guess kcpaz might know that one.

if its a 911/912 you are planning on putting it in, i don't think the 6sp would fit btw. but never say never, can't or won't...

Wali, hey man, thanks for stopping by to check on my progress. I can't wait either

harness all wrapped up and back in the car. had a friend tig on the BOV flange so thats all finalized. i have to do a little research where the vacuum lines from the stock boost controller goes. in know one goes to the waste gate (not sure which one) and the other goes somewhere on the intake manifold. if i find pics later i'll post them up and perhaps someone can help me out.

mounted all the electrical so that is mostly finalized. i'll remove the mdf board and use it as a template for an aluminum one or have it covered with black vinyl. not sure which yet. i was gonna try to hide it all but i like the ease of access and i kinda like seeing it all, kind of like seeing the inside of a watch work. well see.



connected all the items that needed vacuum (BOV and boost controller) which sealed all those leaks, plumbed -8AN lines to vent the heads and crank case to my catch can and dumped the oil from the initial start up and put in some Brad Penn and a new OEM Subaru oil filter and crush washer. Buttoned her up for a second start up and to see if it evened out the idle and throttle response. Much better. OEM stock wbo2 ordered which btw is a Denso 234-9011 (wrx 4 wire 02-05.)

EDIT:this Denso will not read correctly. the oem unit is 22641 AA191

This is the thread I wanted, I love you op! I was going to buy a 912E/912 and then swap in a EJ20/EJ22 N/A maybe EJ25.

But 4cyl N/A engine. Maybe EJ205 since WRX engines are so available

Awesome build, that thing sounds great! What are the plans for the rest of the car? Suspension, wheels, etc.

I like the idea of the scoops before the rear wheels for the small radiators, function and style. Without seeing the car in person but...

well, I've mostly gone thru the car already with swapping the '68 front suspension out for a newer '82 SC with bigger brakes and lighter aluminum crossmember. while i was up there, i install all polybronze bushings for the A arms and Bilstein Sport struts. the rear too base stiff shocks adjustable swing arms but still the original smaller disc brakes. I'm toying with the idea of making jig off of the early steel short wheel base trailing arms and cutting a modern aluminum trailing arms to fit. this would allow bolting on later larger OEM brakes or after market brakes.

i'll have to change the tranny at some point, not a matter if if but when. the 901 just wasn't designed to put 300hp to the ground. likely will be a suby 5 speed tranny converted to RWD and reverse ring/pinion and custom flanges.

as far as wheels, the Porsche Fuchs 15" are light and strong and period correct but i have a set of 16" Fuchs that I'll have powered coated and slicks for the track. I am not going to cut and install flares so unfortunately I'm stuck with 205/15/50 or 205/16/50 all the way around.

as far as cooling up front, I'm still waffling but i thing I've nailed down how I'm going to do it. i found an old thread on a Porsche forum where our fabrication master JCPAZ (see the Boxter with Suby conversion here on this forum) installed a EZ33 into a SC. I liked how he removed the gas tank exposing the stock opening in the front trunk floor and used that for the radiator venting and only had to cut a relatively small opening in the front to bring air in.







then did a custom tank behind it

That radiator setup looks like the way to go, very nice and clean. When running the piping for the coolant to the rear would you use hose all the way or run tubing through the cabin? Either hide it or paint it to match the interior and make it flow with the interior.



I like the period correct look. Love the car
