I decided to do a brake swap and finally got around to fixing the sagging IC pipe shown in the pictures above.

Following Stimpy's thread on this subject... http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...ght=SVX+master I didn't like the spongy brake feel after the swap. I decided to swap in an SVX brake master cylinder and upgrade to 4/2 pot brakes and new rotors. While the brakes were ok, there was still too much brake pedal travel for my liking. The install was pretty straight forward and has been documented several times so I'll refrain from posting the details of the swap. Parts used were as follows:

4/2 pot brakes
eBay drilled and slotted rotors
2006 WRX pads (PBR / Axxis pads)
1991-1995 SVX Brake Master Cylinder
Kartboy rear brake caliper adapters

I did have to remove the rear dust shields due to the larger rotors. Some folks have drilled the spot welds (I did one this way - see pics), but I opted to use a small pry bar and channel locks and it worked fine. The master cylinder took a little over an hour to swap, but everything bolted up. I did have to splice the master cylinder wiring since the SVX clip was different than the '98L clip, but that was easy.

2 Pot Fronts:


Single Pot Rears:


Rear Dust Cover Removed:



Kartboy Adapter Brakets:


JDM 2 Pots Installed:


JDM 4 Pots Installed:


End Result:



Results:

After bedding the pads, I couldn't believe the difference! The brake travel has been significantly reduced with excellent braking. Thanks to Stimpy and Legacy777 for this mod. For those who have swapped rear disks from drums, have a single brake booster and no ABS, I'd highly recommend this mod.

A few pictures after installing the HT Auto mini scoop, fixing the IC piping and installing the IC wrap.

You can do these swaps for very cheap. I am in to mine like 2,000, thats including the price of the car(Picked up a 93 L with 130K on the odo, great condition for $500), complete swap(2 ECU's[3b and z4] wiring harness, fmic with piping for reversed manifold[swap came with a reversed mani]) The swap was $750, picked up a td04(just until I get something bigger) for $50, 2.5 rs bumper grill and headlights for $140 total and a couple fixed back carbon fiber seats[traded one sparco fighter for the pair]. And a few more misc items like a clutch and axles. I will be in it about 3,000 by the end including the car. I think thats not bad at all.

Yea, I'm ready for the next 50 year snow event. We might hit freezing once or twice per year. While I'd prefer a little more drop, the more I drive the car the better I like the suspension set up. I have coilovers on my STi and it rides like it.

No pet rat, but there are enough nasty critters in the area that typhus is pretty common. It's not a weight loss program I would recommend.

Ouch - Hit-n-Run left the carnage. Some will buff out but other parts will need to be fixed or replaced.







I've bent the hood back as close to normal as possible, but I can't do much with the front part. The bumper will need a repaint and of course a new headlight. The grill survived, but I had to use a ratchet strap to pull the radiator support back about 1/2".

Dude, I would seriously be fighting the intolerable need to commit homicide if that was my car and it was hit and run. Sorry to see this happened.
Im glad to see you got it on the road now tho. Looks great, congrats.

The hood has been fixed. On to the next project. My half-hearted attempt to sell the Ver4 STi heads was, well, just that.



Sooo...While the car is running great, I managed to pick up a EJ205 with forged pistons and STi rods and have decided to mate the Ver4 STi heads to this guy.



I'll post some more pictures, but I've installed most of the bolt-on stuff (pulleys, 12mm JDM oil pump, water pump, STi pickup tube and oil pan. More to come.

Heads and misc. accessories bolted on. I still need to install the cam seals and torque the cam caps/cam covers.
