Nice... I'm jealous. But not jealous on being out 15k!


Keep the pictures coming, I'd love to see a vid of the finished product.

Btw, where did you pick up that swap? Suretrac?

I picked it up through my local parts guy, hes going to be getting vendor status on here soon under "boostedtechnology" the engine(long block)/tranny/tranny accessories/axles/rear diff/ brembo with hubs, only cost me 8940 shipped, the shipping was around 500 or so. The turbo kit was like 2650 i think... its a gt3076r full perrin kit and the FMIC was like 850 for the full kit.

Going to go out today and do some spray painting of the head liner and the a,b,c pillars in black ill post up some pics when im finished

Yea, sorry just got a new job so ive been running around, got the STI interior mostly installed now. I have a small problem with the plastic pieces that cover up the seat bolts tho, they dont seem to match up? Can anyone shed some light on this? are 04 sti ones different than 03 wrx? if so ill just go order some but they are very off from what I can tell. ill take some pics later on.

- another problem im having is the piece for the seat belt that is actually around the belt itself and the bolt goes thru this peice to attatch to the side of the car, are there any black ones of these or has anyone found a way to make these black?

yea acctually very simple to do it because the v7 sti engine from japan came from a bugeye they used mass manufacturing in the harness on the chassis. All that needs to be changed for wiring is the stuff for the AVCS which is fairly simple, a few wires come from inside the cabin under the passenger foot kick plate where the ECU is to both sides of the engine bay, a couple wires to the grey plug fixed near the boost solenoid on the passenger side engine bay. The others are routed to the opposite side to the black plug i believe it is, which is the same style and size of the plug on the other side just another color, this is located next to a similar brown plug and sits kinda inbetween the battery and washer fluid tank.

keep in mind this is all on the assumption that a engine wiring harness is used from the EJ207
