um, everytime I've pulled axles on an STi, the circlip has stay on the stub and not in the tranny...regardless, I fished around and couldn't find anything.
Also, neither axle would fit unless I were to change my control arms. Also, those CV's wouldn't hold. So I'm just doing the chormoly stubs with DSS stage 5 fronts for a GC.

as for the power steering bracket I had planned on drilling in my own holes. I was referring to it fitting OEM holes in the chassis

The chambers are not done yet... I found a little more room for improvement in them...



The intake ports are about maxed out... And they sonic check fine...
If you look at the reflection on the left intake port, you can see the dogleg that is in them now...
(Think mirrored Big Block Chevy Oval dog leg ports, thats what they remind me of... And flow better to boot... )


If you have any questions about them, you can pm me...
I don't want to hog up your thread...

Did you get all of the drive train in yet???
quick question... whats a dogleg ?

yeah, I'm still holding for the machine shop to have finished my adapter plate. It really isn't hard to make (with the right tools) and was suppose to be done thursday.

well, stuffed some 17x8's wearing 235/40-17's under the car today on the stock fenders and the fenders are of course not happy. My bearings and headstuds also FINALLY came in. Still waiting on my timing belt and then final machining before assembly, assuming my cams and cam gears don't turn into a hold up (knocks on wood).

yeah, I've done some more porting but the machine shop/plastics specialists have been taking forever on making my adapter.
Really anxious to get it the ports done and buttoned up so that I can get the first engine done.

well, I've hit a slew of snags including swapping to a new chassis.
I will try to get some pics up tomorrow of the latest rendition of the heads and the sleeved block...tomrrow I will actually be up at the machine shop balancing the rotating assembly and doing some deshrouding on the Serdi.

still waiting to hear back from aem on my ems...my big water to air IC core has arrived now too...time to fab up some tanks

I want to set up an evaporative ammonia system for my intercooler.

it would probably just produce ice in the intake tract, however. drats! stupid anhydrous ammonia

the old chassis has a few things I don't like about it from the previous owner and I've wanted to get another 2 door for awhile. Also, there are easier and more options for fitting wide tires on a 2door.

EDIT: the shortblock is finally done, everything decked, honed, balanced, polished etc...its amazing what you can do when you finally get time
heads should be finished in the next 1-2 weeks...hits the serdi on monday and THESE ports should be flow matched and done shortly there after.

Awesome ! crazzy stuff you are doing to that thing...

eager to hear how your heads turn out... I imagine you have spent QUITE some time on them ?

I hear you about the time restriction... It seems I only get time to work on my car a couple times a month now

well, a one month later update. All machining is done and I need to finalize the ports in the heads (for the heads going on the motor). Right now everything is being cryo'ed and assembly should start here shortly.
I still need to order a few more parts. x-mas hurt the budget a bit so if you guys want to send me some money on my b-day (the 7th) I'd appreciate it

NOW I see this thread?

So this is the motor you wanted my car for?

Dayum that would've made me one proud papa.
Sorry, It didn't go to you.

I'll try to keep up with this thread.
I hope to see you run/dyno this beast.
