Default The resurrection

Alright. So I said I wasn't going to update the build thread until the car was drifting again. Well that took longer than expected, but yesterday I drifted in the Import Face Off Competition here in Phoenix!














Car is unbelievable. Super responsive. Acceleration is retarded fast, primarily due to the 4.11 final drive and 05 sti gearbox. My 4th is equivalent to others 3rd etc. Plenty of angle. And car feels feather light.

In terms of power the tune isn't fully done. Put down 408whp but this setup should be capable of 550-600 whp to be honest. Either way it was way more power, in a much lighter version of my car, than I could handle! Suspect that cam timing must be off and will be working on fixing this and getting the motor to full capacity.


I definitely need to work on my drifting skills. Yesterday's comp was pretty embarrassing as I only got roughly 5-6 runs in before qualifying...all of which I spun out on. The track was wet during qualifying and I had yet to shake down the car and hadn't drifted in over a year. Regardless that pretty much everyone else except the top 8 were spinning as well, I was really frustrated that I had this unbelievably overbuilt car and couldn't drive worth ****. Was pretty rad to be able to throw the car in 4th and even on dry pavement have it instantly start burning tires and hit rev limiter, that definitely didn't happen on the old ej205 setup

So yeah, in terms of the car. It's basically there. There are a few tiny things you notice that you want to fix every track event and that wont be hard to do. But other than that, its just damn amazing. My dream setup.

In terms of skills, super lacking. There is no substitute for seat time. No mod you can do that can give you driver experience. Thats what I'll be working on from here out.

Thank you thank you!

Yeah in terms of the hood, the current one on there is real ****ty! It was a bug eye hood i got from a local member for free to experiment with as I didn't want to mess up my nice 04 hood.



Since then i've actually been hooked up with 2 other 04-05 hoods to play with so I should be able to do something cool hopefully! Plan on basically just doing two large cut outs directly over the tubs, with little upwards cowl-like lips around the front and side edges, and I'm hoping this alone will suck air from the v-mount up the tub area and out the sides while going straight and in drift. We'll see.

Another drift event this Friday so I've adjusted my rear suspension way softer, basically 100% opposite from how it was at the event last week and we'll see how that helps out. I want to swap out my front springs (6k) with my backs (8k) on my stance coils as that would be way better for sliding but prolly won't have enough time...and not sure if the springs are the same diameter and length etc.

Other than that not much, might wire in these little 160cfm computer fans i got on the intercooler just to keep it cool while waiting in line and staging. Pretty anal but whatever haha!



Trying to also make a quick air box to isolate the intake air from air in the engine bay as this would help lower intake air temps i'm sure.

But moreso been trying to work on the other car in my garage, and help get my buddy Dustin's rad ass e36 drift truck ready so he can get out there with me! thing has been in the works for longer than mine was down and is super close and basically it has to start making drift events if i'm going to them...I'm set on it!

Not to hijack your thread but to suggest something a little cleaner... I'm doing a v-mount as well but not yet running. I just installed some runcool hood louvers and they came out great. $229 pre-powdercoated white and was very easy to install.

Pic for reference.

Once the intercooler is in place we will be putting in the WRC hood vent I have and some aerocatch latches and it'll look something like this.

Basically for ~$320 and some time you could clean up your good hood you said you had and make it perfect for v-mount The size louver I used are 11"x17" btw.

Thanks man! Yeah your hood looks awesome! I love the hood scoops alot more on the GR's. I was originally going to do rivet on hood louvers, except a different company that was a bit cheaper (here). However yeah very simmilar to your design. However, one of my friends has told me of a local hot rod/ muscle car shop that can press custom louvers onto hoods for $2 a louver so looking at that right now. Part of me still wants to avoid the duct directly behind the v-mount due to that hot air recirculating directly into my air intake, however with the airflow you get at track speeds the potential effect of this would most likely not even be noticeable. But yeah I've actually been given 2 other 04-05 hoods from a friend who converted to hawkeye, so I definetly plan to mess around with those as well and make some way cleaner designs.

Yeah with the bugeye I initially wasn't concerned and just though "Īt's a drift car, **** it!" but with how extensive the build is it has got a lot of photo attention and people asking about shooting it to try to get it in mag features and blah blah blah so the hood kind of does annoy me more now.

However in terms of functionality, the bugeye hood definetly works great with the v-mount. Intake air temps were holding at around 70-77 degrees this weekend out on the track, pinning rev limiter the entire time! On the highway I've seen AIT's as low as 5-10 degrees above ambient.

some pics and a little video from this past weekend at a small little kart track down in Tucson. Car drove a ton better after revising suspension. Need to verify my cam timing and retune to get full power, right now i'm just at 1bar of boost and rev limit of 6800 haha. Plan for motor is 2bars and 9500 haha.

Other issue is R180 and my crazy fast 4.11 final drive on the already fast 05 6mt, I was in third while most where in 2nd on this track, but the diff still acted like an open diff alot. Need to try to go either welded or to an actual good lsd.

Oh well, too many events scheduled and I just wana/ need to get more seat time!

Incredible thread. Subscribed for more...love that everything was done by you, and fabbed up very well.

I havn't been drifting in years. You almost have me convinced to pull the cover off my Shiro Sport and get back out there!

Default 3-16-13 Drift Event

So had a sweet day drift event at Firebird Raceway here in Arizona! Super fun time. My Brake master cylinder died almost immediately once i got to the track . Was working on bleeding it all week and couldn't get it but just suspected air in the lines due to the two cylinders in-line (master and hydro ebrake). So once this failed it left me with just my hydro (which was slowly fading) as my only means to stop. This caused me to drive a bit more timidly in following cars and I had to initiate through a manji instead of driving 4th gear and using more e-brake. Regardless had a blast driving!


About 3/4 through the event though trouble hit hard. Unfortunetly the go-pro's had also just died and didn't capture the excitement. Was going into the initiation and pinging third gear and then pop...billowing white smoke from the engine bay. I coasted to a stop and got out as fast as I could and told my passenger to do the same. We were basically choking on smoke anyways. Once out I saw flames under the engine bay and raced to grab my Halotron Extinguisher. Mistake was not grabbing it right off the bat and getting it ready as soon as i got out...lesson learnt. By this point, the safety truck was already there and was pulling the fire hose towards the car. I was able to pop off the safety clip and then do two bursts with my fire extinguisher to put out the flames before they drenched the engine. They thought my extinguisher was dry chem and were telling me not to as I was trying to explane it was Halotron. Anyways they got there crazy fast and that was the life saver. Even so, a bit of damage was done to areas of the car from the fire.









At the track we tried diagnosing it. Oil seemed to have completely evacuated engine, and oil seemed to be dripping directly from the 3 bolt flange at the headers/up-pipe. Not good. Suspect a cracked ring or hole in block. However engine cranks smooth...weird. Guess we will have to wait to find out.

Get car home, taken apart and up on jack stands. Her natural habitat it seems. Spark Plugs are clean. Compression numbers are decent. Ok cool. Oil Sandwhich adapter? I had been hoping this since it happened but was scared due to oil dripping from headers and oil residue all the way back on the tail pipe. Take off oil sandwhich adapter and oil cooler, no more leak while cranking! Sweet! Looking at the adapter didn't see anything wrong, but upon inspecting the oil cooler lines found a big hole in the feed line. If you look at the picture, the line with the hole has a bigger weave in it, than the one in the background. The one in the background is the newer style of hose, which features the nylon weave, rubber, then a metal inner weave, then the inner hose. I had one of these newer style hoses also for my power steering cooler, and it completely got toasted in the fire, however it didn't rupture due to the inner metal weave. Point= make sure you get the newer style hose!



So the fact the basically new motor wasn't blown was a huge relief. Got back to working on fixing up everything that got destroyed by the fire.
List included. Fixing my passenger side engine harness (gray plug, cam/crank and knock sensors, all shielded). Replacing the portion of my driver side (brown/black plug) harness that got burnt (#1 & #3 coil on plugs, injector clip). removing oil cooler sandwich and putting factory water/oil heat exchange back on for time being. Replacing a couple misc vacuum hoses that got toasted. cleaning off oil grime that spewed everywhere.



One annoying thing was my pass motor mount was completely toast. Call up Revshift and tell them what happened and ask if I could buy just one mount and they tell me that they have a lifetime warranty and if i snap some pics they will send me two new mounts as replacements! That's customer service! Check the company out, I totally recommend these mounts!



Overall not that bad for a fire. Lesson's I learnt. Don't ever skimp on a good Halotron Fire Extinguisher and mount it somewhere easy to get to!!! Dont go for a dry chemical (normal) fire extinguisher or you could do more damage to your engine than the fire would have caused. Big billowing white smoke = Fire and grab extinguisher! Get it out ASAP seconds are crucial! Avoid running oil lines anywhere close to exhaust headers...however where I ran them is the only place possible on the subaru motor, and they were fire sleaved...maybe just a bad line. I know lots of other suby people runs oil coolers.

Was going to push to get everything reassembled for the drift event tonight but its my Mom's Bday so skipping it. Working on getting a truck and trailer to use to get to Round 2 of Vegas Pro Am next week and do some sweet suby tandems with my rwd suby homeboy Derrick Lopez!

had a awesome time competing in Vegas Drift Round 2 this past weekend. So much fun and can't wait for round 3.

Car held up awesome! raised boost just a little before the comp (14psi-18) which helped. Course was rad but definitely challenging. 70-90mph entry into a scrub speed monjie into a quick transition onto a slightly banked 3rd turn, then a stretch into the final sweeper. The transition from the 2nd turn into the banked 3rd was for sure the most challenging aspect of the course. If you straighted and didn't transition or understeered, you were getting sent off a nice little berm/launch ramp right into a sand pit. Quiet a few people did this, Dan Brockett straightened and hardly braked and launched this pretty high and far, unfortunetly damaging his car. Joe Haven (in George Marstonovic's rx7) launched it sideways. I followed all these by trying to enter faster during practice and then not being able to slow down quick enough with the ebrake, sending me straight backwards off the berm. A photographer was able to capture this moment, my buddy BG put me up on Hoonigan, and the picture quickly went viral haha. Its a pretty rad shot, hard to tell whats going on, which is rad. Looks like i'm doing some crazy sideways noseblunt grind haha. Amazingly, the car landed perfectly flat, pretty soft, and was unscathed. I basically sat there for a second stunned, then drove back onto the course. Steering felt fine going back at the start line, jumped out, looked under the back of my car and then got back in the practice line and kept driving. I guess Subarus just like to be airborne



Drove kind of conservatively, my entry speed was only 67mph, and this hurt my score, I also straightened for a second between turn 2 and 3 My brake system still sucks (I was using the cable ebrake which worked awesome, but not having a reliable foot brake really made it hard to drive the course past my comfort zone). I'm going to be completely removing the brake system, checking all calipers, and redoing it all. Its to that point. All junctions appear fine, no leaks, replaced MC, nothing much else to do. Regardless, placed 19 out of 50+ drivers. For sure a good way to feel out the Vegas Drift Competition series and looking forward to pushing way harder, securing a top 16 qualifying spot and really trying to kick some ass at round 3. So hooked I actually forked over what cash I have to buy my buddy's trailer to make sure I can get to as many events as possible.

Unfortunetly, gopro's failed on me again. My front drivers side wheel bearing went out at the end of the day driving the practice course, so the next day we all went to drift at the Get Nuts compound, and my gopro2 with all the comp footy flew off my buddy's car and got destroyed so anyways, here's what pics I have found surface and the footage my buddy Dustin captured on a handheld cam from the bleachers:
