Just to throw this out there, we used that style pump in our 7 sec (.7-.8 not a subaru) and it would not pump the amount of water needed. This is a centrifugal supercharger application, obviously not making nearly as much heat as a turbo app.

I'm sure you have your build all figured out, so this is just me throwing out a more efficient solution for you to look at.

(Bilge pump) roughly 2200 gal/min

Meziere pump roughly 3300 gal/min

Also, this build is glorious.

Intersting... I was worried that the pump I have would actually flow too much for my application. Been thinking about purposly reducing the flow of my current pump on my setup.

Had looked at a few different options, but after speaking to Precision Turbo, Garret and Borg Water, they all said to go with the same pump. The Rule 17A. Looked up reviews and could not find a single failure.
Plus 3800GPH isnt too bad either.
Only drawback i see is that it's made in Mexico. Would rather support US or Canada made products, but you can't have everytihng.

edit: We'll see how it works out. I really hope you are wrong AspenScoob255 and the pump I have now last forever. lol.
Thanks for the heads up though. Will def keep it in mind if/when something bad happens. Hopefully not.

Not a problem, hey if it works that's all that matters. Just wanted to throw it out there, the competition runs the same pump you have...we used it for a while and then changed to the Menzier and no one could touch him. However, this is a v8 so different applications obviously.

You should be fine, good luck with the build. Excited to see it finished.

Just another thing to add, we burn 21lbs of ice per run....that's a ton of ice.

Oh wow. 21lbs of ice per pass. That is impressive.
Hoping my little 5 Gallon icebox + core will be enough.

Looking good man.

But that doesn't look like trash to me, 40+- lbs of unstripped copper will fetch a hefty price.

Little while since I updated anything...

In house built small aluminum fuel cell to go upfront.


Going to end up being a pretty simple fuel system. Filters thread into the cell.


Changed up in the front a little to make more room.


Cell mounted on front moly bar

Unfortunately it still has a ways to go.

Everything still needs to come back out to get coated and the entire interior needs to be painted still.

Looks good. It all takes time. I work at a fabrication /welding/restoration shop and plenty of big jobs take well over a year to get running. We have a badass 66 chevelle 10.5 car coming in to do a ton of work on soon. It's one of the nicest cars I've seen. I wish I had some spare time and money to build another Subaru again.

Wow you actually went through the body harness!! I had a short recently that fried my AEM and started replacing harnesses. At some point, I thought about going to a Milspec harness. It looked easy to to do for the Honda guys. After looking at all the diagrams, I was like...why is it all connected together? This is just not worth the time. lol

It soon became clear that it wasn't about taking the engine harness and redoing the wiring. To use a bulkhead connector, I'd have to basically dig into the body harnesses. ummm no thanks lol

Dismantling the entire car in the next few weeks.
Everything has to go to paint and ceramic coating.
