Good work, found this from your post looking for advice on a builder.
Big do-it myselfer too, done a LOT just live out in the sticks so internet is more a slow frustration then a tool so I just never tossed a thread up because I would hardly be able to upload a pic.

Looks like a good thread to keep an eye on, one of the few not over-run with D-bag comments and uninformative opinions (Please don't let me jinx it).

Im 6 years forward similar story just got delayed a bit, bought an 02 wrx when I was 14 going on 15 but clearly needed help driving it home so my brother happily picked it up and got half way home before hitting 2 tree's because he thought it would be fun to mess around on a few back roads . After that I put my subi love aside because I got a truck as "payment" clearly not the same. Worked like HELL and bought an 04 Sti drove it 25k had 50k on it when I got it before she blew and I currently am finishing my build back it just took a like two years but thats my fault for being overly worried about contamination and just the amount of money it needed to get where I wanted it. My next one will be to see how little I can spend building a 2.5rs from the ground up

I haven't run the wiring harness for the cut out yet, I also fixed my brakes.

I'll post some pics of the new car parts I have gotten since I last updated, I am just trying to get in touch with BRED to get them to build my shortblock but I haven't gotten them to answer there phone or respond to NASIOC messages in like 3 weeks. Does anyone know anything about that?

If BRED doesn't work out I've saved enough money to have a Subaru speciality place build my block, does anyone know any other shops besides real street?

update time shipping my block to Lutz Performance hopefully this week.(if anybody wants to buy my BNIB ej20 team scream torque plate, let me know)

I just need:
timing belt kit
oil cooler
oil pressure gauge and a wideband

then it will be doneeeee

on a side note, the stuff that I need to do to my car that I dont have to pay for before it can leave the driveway:

figure out how to attach an 04 bumper to the 02 and make it look decent
re-attach the oem side skirts
wire up all my gauges
make a wiring harness for the electronic cut out
install SS brake lines and bleed the brakes
pressure wash the engine bay

also I got a hella deal on 2 245/40 z1 star specs with like 70-80% tread left, where as my rear re-615k's had so much camber wear they would not have even made it out of my driveway(my driveway is at a 45 degree angle)

I just picked up the bearings my friend was going to use for his build, acl race main and rods. But he also had a set of calico main bearings. The way he described them was, calico buys acl bearings and puts this coating on them similar to piston coating. They look sick

Whats your eta on this being on the road again?
Also if you like that coating they used if you want there are special coatings that work on all different internal components. Found a local place two months after I closed my block up.

Hopefully end of January. It would be sooner if I wasn't spending the past 2 weeks finishing my schoolwork, my deadline is the 21st and by then lutz will be closed for the holidays so I have to wait till after New Years to ship it off.

Just need a tial q bov/timing belt kit/a few misc bolts/oil and coolant and I'll have everything.

Also I may be doing an even trade for my fp18g to a fp green non hta. So that will be a nice addition to the build

Edit: one of my heads has a hard like residue on it from the machine shop, they said it was hard water or something from sitting the bag, what can I use to safely get this off? I tried using a razor blade and it slowly scrapes it off but it also scratches the finish from them getting decked

Cool, not too much longer. Im on pace to be done start to mid jannuary, just slow internet so I could not post a build thread unless I posted when I go into town. Personally I would make them remove it, should have never gave it to you that way. But if you post a pic it might help.

Little update, I get my shortblock back from LUTZ performance in about a week. They acid dipped the block, balanced, blue printed, did the machine work on it, using a torque plate, there suby tech does nice work. Then I just need my timing kit, a few misc bolts/gaskets/oil/coolant and I am in the clear to start putting it back together

You can add a additive, i cant think of the exact name, im thinking heat? Stabil? idk something like that. Or u can always drain it and fill it back up. 6 months i would just put a octane booster or something maybe someone here can give you an actual brand instead of rambling lol but build looks good man, one question the paint you used on the intake, high heat? or.......

The heads did you port yourself?

drain it out and give it to a friend who typically uses regular or something. . . put a lot of work in that to save a few $ on old gas. Also the stabilizer needs to be added before you let it sit, if you ever have to let it sit again. Don't forget there are two low points in the tank that should be drained.

I personally wouldnt worry about it after you dump a can of octane booster in there. Its not like you'll be doing alot of WOT right away since the motor has to be broken in

Helicoiled the holes. Suprisingly everything went well MINUS the helicoil tap breaking apart after I got the threads to the bottom so I had to chuck it and reverse it out.

Went to put my Morosa oil pick up on and then my oil pan and after and hour of fighting it, realized that the morosa pick up lines to the right while the oem and the groove in the wrx pan is on the left, so it was physically impossible to make it work. Had to use my oem oil pick up and knowing my luck it will break and oil starve my motor
