Been a while, here's the scoop.

Got the engine back form the shop and have finally installed it in the car. i have how ever changed my mind and decide to install a whipple 1.6 in over the eaton for the obvious advantages it has over eaton roots. how ever i moved into a new place with a garage and basement to work in the increased rent has slow down the savings a lot so i haven't purchased the blower yet. i will be selling the brand new Ebay TMIC i bought and the 2 Eaton blowers i have soon along with an STi oil cooler.

since im scrapping the roots i have change my manifold plans a lot. I'm still aiming for the STX IM style but with a litlle more OEM looks.

till i get the blower im using the recked short block and a set of junk yard heads to mock up the mainfold will i break in the new engine.

also i am having a 6" drive pulley made to drive the blower vs the more common serpentine style that others have been going with. this will give me a 2.5:1 drive ratio.

Been a while since i last updated my build. Its been a long slow process gathering the materials i need and i am still working on that but i now have the biggest of the purchase list.

Whipple twinscrew supercharger.
GM 2bar Map.
Lc-1 wide band with gage.
Spare manifold for slicing and dicing.
And my EJ257 short block, build installed and broken in.

Its going to take a while but im going to build my setup on the old shortblock with the spare parts i got at the salvage yard. i will do my best to take as many pictures as i can and document this build over the next few months. I will not be able to dedicate my time and resourses as i just bought a house, have a fence to build, heating/cooling system to update but supercharger will be installed.

Hmmm....just saw this thread (I haven't been on here as much as before). Nice sounding build, I sorta liked the idea of a SC Legacy for a number of reasons.

Where in NJ are you? I may very well have seen you at some point if you're central or north.

i like the idea that a wagon with all wheel drive should have a good low to mid range power band. I work in the Bordentown area and am now residing in PA. Its cheaper to live in PA than jersey these days.



This is the current development of my 3D rendering of the blower to the throttle body. It going to be a slow build but that is ok with me. i need to get my micro CNC mill back up and running and finish moving into my work shop.

Default jan 2014 update

Heres an up date. To much stuff to do not enough time and now its 8* out side WTF! Anyway setting up a mock block in the back room of my job. been updating my cad models like crazy with the new info.

need some help from anyone with parts floating around. I need dimensions of the Crank timing sprocket ( Height and Diameter)

Any one with a WRX block, i need a rough dimension of the crank case vent in center of the block. (from the bell and some point off the left or right of the engine. and the diameter of the vent.)
