**NEW PICS**
POST 76


I bought this car April of '07 after selling my '05 STi with the idea of building something just as fast/fun but for less money and cheaper on insurance. Its been just about a year later and shes almost ready to come back out. No its not swapped just yet but all in due time..... Anybody wanna go for a cruise once its back out on the road?

**sorry for the big pics**

Factory brakes FTL!


Test fitting wheels....Yeah they're Rotas wanna fight about it?




Pulled the original EJ25, blown head gaskets and a nasty valve tap so I replace it with a lower mile motor. I broke 3rd gear on my trans so I also replaced that. I'm sticking with the RS drivetrain so I'm planning on PGG'ing the original trans when I'm ready for a swap. Oh yeah I also degreased the engine bay.

Most of my suspension goals have been taken care of. The big goal is a USDM STi swap with an Ultimate Racing GT35R and Straight cut PPG's

Lol, it felt like such a down grade but the funny thing is I got a bigger kick out of putting the pedal on the floor and keeping up/ passing faster cars in the corners.

The part# for the extended studs is ARP-100-7716. I ordered them from summit racing, $39.99 for a pack of 5 studs and they have pretty fast shipping. I would order 5 packs just in case you some how manage to cross threads a few of them.....not that I would know anything about that. Install on the fronts is pretty easy and straight forward. The rears you're going to have to drill out your abs sensor holes with a 3/4" drill bit (19mm) so you can pass the longer studs through it. Your from LI? I went to Hofstra.

Very nice progress on the rebuild...I just swapped my rear subframe on an uneven driveway with nothing but hand tools and help from a few of my fraternity brothers haha

And to takumi, I work at the Hofstra bars and go to school out at Stony Brook. I never see any GCs around the Hempstead/Uniondale area...

Oh yeah its possible, but I also have a knack for breaking things. The rear wasn't that bad and I drilled the holes out after I remounted the rear knuckle assembly. All you have to do is unbolt the caliper, remove the rotor, unbolt your abs sensor, drill the hole out wider to pass the studs through, unbolt your abs tone ring (careful with the allen heads), move the ring off to the side a bit, bang out the old studs, slide the new studs in through the hole, use an open ended lug nut to pull the stud into the hub and presto extended studs! I also would recommend soaking the studs in WD40 and spraying the holes in the hub with brake cleaner or WD prior to installation, makes them slide in a bit easier.
I still have friends out in Franklin Sq so I'm out there from time to time, I'll hit you up once the car is out.

Hofstra bars FTL! Anybody remember Bogarts? lol. But yeah the rear end can be a pain and I had to take it apart twice. +1 for wrenching on your own car, why pay someone to do the work for you when its so easy to do yourself. The money you save not taking it to a shop is more money for mods!

Got the tires mounted, but now I've got more bugs to work out. Starter is on the fritz, fuel pump died and my horns don't work. Here's some crappy cell pics of the wheel/ tire combo.
