Wow nice car Frayz, personally I would T-Clamp all your piping rather then having the worm type clamps. That is one hell of a setup there

What brake pads do you use for the street?

Are those the AP5200 calipers?

Well not much has gone on recently really

The car is SORN and due to have the motor pulled. However i have one fundamental issue.... im still waiting on my new crank.

FFS its doing my head in and i have done as much as i possibly can but now im stuck and just waiting for that to arrive and i can crack straight on with the build.

Today i tried to keep up my interest in the car by welding a fitting onto my boost pipe for my new Tial 50mm BOV.

The Tial fitting would not have been possible without the massive and amazing generosity and help from a NASIOC member.

Jester808 , sent me not one but two of the stainless flanges for free just to help me out (First one lost in the post after a 6 week wait)

I cant thank him enough. The kindness from over 3000 miles away was overwhelming.

Thankyou so much again buddy.


Heres a pic just to show.

Other than that its all pretty quiet at camp frayz, and im feeling pretty dispondant with it if im honest

(Please ignore the orange vac line, its just for the purpose of testing it was working until i get new vac lines.)

Ive swapped some things about and located a crank elsewhere. I should have a brand new EJ257 crank at my door first thing in the morning.

So with that said it looks like i'll be at least starting the bottom end assembly as soon as i get a spare minute.

This is a somewhat happier me

Also got a few other parts today,

ARP stud/nut kit


New clutch release and spigot bearings


RCM Modified oil pump


Fuelab billet fuel filter with -6an fittings


Genuine Subaru piston rings


Power Enterprises kevlar timing belt


Also picked up some new rocker cover gaskets today too. Still waiting on a fair few more parts but at least the list of "things to buy" is slowly getting smaller lol.

You definitely need to take the graphics off, they make the car look cheap.

Cleared some room today, gotta bite the bullet soon and start stripping the motor out of the car

I'll start by stripping most of the stock motor in the car. All parts will be photgraphed, bagged and tagged with locations and hardware.

I want to try and refurbish as may parts, bracket etc as possible so it will all be as minty mint as i can make it when it all goes back together.

Then i'll need to borrow and engine crane and have the motor out.

Remember, this is no concours car, just a one man band doing what i do.

Ready to rock
