I'm gonna put a lot of time into the project this long weekend. I'm setting a goal of test firing the engine by the end of the month, latest.

Anyone who wants to stop by, drop me a PM. I've also jumped on the Westchester and Danbury Chat threads and I'm hoping to meet some of the local gearheads.

I did a test fit of the wiring harness the other day and it all looks like it's gonna meet up just fine. I then finished soldering and heat shrinking the connections on the wiring harness. Next step is to do a test fire of the engine. I've got quite a bit of work before that happens though. I've got to install the harness, cooling system, vacuum hoses, dp and lots of other little things. I'll be working on that this week. Still shooting to get my motor running by the end of the month.

I made some good progress today by installing my fuel pump controller. I mounted it in the trunk near the rear defroster relay. It was pretty easy to match up the wires when I laid out the wiring diagrams for the wrx and the legacy.

Next I need to finish up the engine hoses/accessories/misc stuff, install the radiator and fans and fire this sucker up!

Finally some progress on the project. I am about 2/3's done with my exhaust. I am welding up a 3" custom set up using a pre-fabbed 3" downpipe, which I cut the last ten inches off, a flex pipe, high flow cat, Flowmaster resonator and Magnaflow muffler. It should have a nice purr but not be at all obnoxious.

Here is a vid of the exhaust.

quick update.... I'm having trouble getting the OBD port to work. When I plug in my code reader, it flashes, "NO LINK". I'm trying to sort this out so I can start putting everyting back together but can't seem to track down the problem. I traced back all of the wires at the obd port except one which is going down towards the transmission. I'm going to do a contiuity test on that tonight to see what's going on there. If that one is correct, then I'm really stumped.

My other issue is a violent engine shake when I let the clutch out in first gear. When I'm at a stand still and try to get the car moving forward or backward, the motor shakes like crazy! The motor and trans mounts are OEM wrx ones and in good shape. I put a ACT clutch in there and I'm worried it's an issue with that. I called ACT and they said that it might go away or it may have been installed wrong. I followed the instructions to the T and I've done plenty of clutches before so I'm 99% sure I installed it right. I even had the OEM flywheel resurfaced and then sprayed it down with brake cleaner before installing it. Any insight from people would be appreciated on these issues.

So, by the time between my posts you can see that I get sidetracked with many other projects. Anyway, I've put everything else aside for the next few weeks and I'm focused on getting this project done.

I'm trying to sort out my engine shake issue. I removed the transmission today to take a look at the flywheel, clutch and pressure plate. Here's a video of what I found:


Basically... nothing. I can't see anything that looks so bad that it would cause this issue. I'm thinking I'll try some Group N mounts when I put it all back together. This is so frustrating!!!

Got some more work done on my project over the past few weeks. The engine shake issue really pissed me off so I pulled the transmission out to inpsect the clutch, flywheel and pressure plate. Everything look okay but I came to find that I didn't have an ACT clutch like I thought I bought. It turned out that I bought a F1 Racing clutch and ACT pressure plate. I got them on a combo sale/deal on ebay for about $400. I should have known it was too good a deal to be true. So, I ordered a new ACT street clutch from ACT and put it in. While I had the trans out I noticed that there was some minor rust spots on the flywheel from sitting so long. I sanded it down and reinstalled the new clutch, put the trans back in and got everything hooked up. I didn't get to test drive it because I don't have an intercooler right now. I sold my Turbo XS top mount because I didn't think it would clear a stock legacy hood. I'm planning on doing a front mount but don't know what size will fit. I want to run fog lights and I don't want to cut up the bumper beam too bad. I started measuring it all out today and I figure I can fit a 22"x7"x2.5" unit in there. I don't know of any company that makes one that size though. :-(

The last big issue that I'm dealing with is my wiring harness. After installing it and getting the car running, I went to plug in my OBDII scanner to see what codes I was getting. The scanner just said "no link." Somewhere along the line I screwed up a wire or two for the OBDII system and the connector isn't working. I think it's time to send this thing to the master (zephyr) and get it fixed. Then I've just got to reinstall the dash and the body work on the front of the car and I 'm just about road worthy!

Let me know if any of this will work for your project. Stock snorkel is sold but I still have the stock sways, tmic, splitter, etc. I didn't take pics of all the parts listed so make sure to read a few posts instead of just looking at the pics like a Playboy magazine.

Sup gents,
So, I need a bit of help with my leggy wagon swap. I've got it running and need to take it for a Connecticut emissions test within the next 5 days. When I went to register the car in CT since it came from NY they gave me a 10 day temp plate and said that I have to bring back a form from an emissions tester saying that it passed and then they'll give me a regular registration and plates. Soooooooo, that means I can't have any check engine lights. Right now I've got a bunch of them. Mostly due to my TGV delete and one for o2 sensor, catalyst, misfire etc. I need someone to reflash my ECU to get rid of the tgv codes and get rid of my CELs. Also, maybe a new fuel map would be appropriate to match up with the mods I've done. I called the emissions place and they said that I'll need to drive the car about 150 miles before I can get the test to prove that I didn't just reset the codes before pulling in for the test. So, who can plug in their laptop to my car and work some magic for me within the next day or two?
