ThIs, and also when you are pi&&ed off with a project that you cant look at it anymore,, if you want to complete it just put it aside for a little while. Especially if it is a project you do for fun. You'll find a workaround to your issues, just give it some time to think. Personally when I get tired of a project I initially loved I take a step back and work on another project until I have some ideas again on that specific project. You've done some great work so far

Wise words my friend. Unfortunately I didnt do that because I did that so many times with the SR. I'm 23 and trying to buy a house soon and it seemed like everytime I thought I was ahead of the game something new would happen and I'd need to fork out $1000+ The 5.0 may not be as attractive as the SR...but It will WORK.

DSM parts sell cheap.

I've always wanted to put a 4G in a Subaru... Think it'd make a fun car. I parted out my Talon project so now I just have parts laying around.

1uzfe or 2jzge non turbo both motors can be had for 400-800 bucks.

Then get an r154.

You could have your car swapped, wired, mounts/driveshaft/ exhaust, and running for like 2-2500.
That's if the motor is in tip top shape. If not spend the extra 500 for a rebuild, you'll still be in budget.

I'm not a fan of either of those engines. haha. There are a couple guys here in Northern California that run the 1uz's and they have problems. I do appreciate your input though!

Update #12:
This is where the car stands as of today (4/5/13)
Well hello everyone. This is the time most of you been waiting for. This is the resurrection of project powerplenty!!! The car was brought back to the shop this past monday where we have been brainstorming on this build. As some of you may know I ran into some mechanical issues with my SR that my pockets weren't deep enough to fix so I settled down, put my thoughts together, and purchased a Ford 302 with some tasteful modifications off of a buddy of mine. Last night we started the process of fitment so here you go! The beginning to many more updates!!!




As far as the interior goes...we are starting back at ground zero!



We cut out the firewall and tranny tunnel to push the engine as far back as possible which will bring the shifter through the stock location:



And thus...we set her in just to see the clearance and if the oil pan hits the crossmember:



I really hope you enjoy what you saw here. It has been a long road, but this road is coming to an end.

Thanks man. Yeah a proper put together LS swap is fairly expensive. If I had that kind of money my SR would've got finished haha. I'm a fan of the ford small block.

Cricks Racing Fabrication here in Vallejo, CA

I wouldn't go anywhere else. I've known this guy for years and he builds $200,000+ race cars for a living.

Not yet man. It will be going back under the knife hopefully very soon. I'm helping a friend with a mustang right now, and when we are done than my car will be back in the shop.

I won't count this as an updates since there was very minimal done since the last update. What we have here is the complete engine (excluding intake) dropped in the car in the position it will be in when done. It's kicked a little towards the passenger side due to us test fitting headers on the driver side. As you can see there was a lot of cutting involved which will be covered by a sheet metal tranny tunnel. The oil pan is notched and is ready to get built!

Update #13:
This is where the car stands as of today (1/7/14)
Well it has been a long road and waiting show for sure! My fabricator has finally cleared a schedule to get the subie back in the shop and functionally finish her! We are making our way from the front to the back of the car. We started off modding the crossmember by gusseting the engine mounts and doing minor modifications for the FWD rack (PS lines hit a little bit). Once that was conquered; We welded the R180 being as which it was already out of the car, and I wanted to get it back in so I could assemble the rear end. Now we are on the final stage of new FLCA's which push the ball joint 1" forward and 1" out; Not to mention the new arms only weigh 1lb more than the aluminum sti arms. We will also be building lateral links and trailing arms in the near future! Enjoy!!!


Welded Differential:

FLCA :

Just installed the one arm we built to see how much room we had. The test wheel is a 17x9 +15 with a 235/40 <<(I think). We were very pleased with the outcome. With a lower offset and maybe a spacer we will surely acquire some good angle. As of right now the tire hits the frame, but that is at FULL lock.

Update #14:
This is where the car stands as of today (3/27/14)

What's up everyone? Well currently my car is pushed out of the shop so my fabricator could make some quick cash building some cages. In the meantime while I'm waiting I've decided to share my finished mount kit and my finished FLCA's. These FLCA's are available for purchase ($700 raw metal or $800 with powder coat of your choice) They push the ball joint 1" out and 1"forward in comparison with the STi Aluminum Arms. They also only weigh 1-2lbs heavier than the aluminum arms. The FLCA we built uses a 95 (GC) style ball joint that you can purchase virtually anywhere. I decided to use Moog's. The FLCA them selves are made of cold rolled 1018 steel. If you're interested in purchasing please PM me here or email us at info@teamburnthemost.com
