Default There is and will never be another Subaru like this...

Hey all. For those that know me (Also known as Bad Wagon) I have been known to do an try things that aren’t “mainstream” to the Nasioc ways but it’s finally time to share my crowning jewel. Many of you have seen my Wagon and love it or hate it, it was one of a kind and it was taken from me by Mother Nature in the form of a strategically placed deer. It has been a while since that fateful night and its now time to show you what I have been working on for the pass year or so. This, its not the same car I had before reincarnated, but a totally new monster so love it or hate I can 100% guarantee that there is and never will be another Subaru like this again.

Let’s start with the Chassis.

I started by stripping all the stock undercoating off and stitch welded the entire chassis. I know many members feel that this is un-necessary but I did it for added rigidity and it made it to I could shave some weight off the chasses by getting rid of most of the un-needed supports and mounting points so in the end I shaved a good 100lbs off the car. Coated the underside in POR15 and then applied 2 coats of hard rubberized undercoating to keep it light but not defining. Here are a few pics of the end result. The Front frame rails are still cut short so I can make a custom core support for the Intercooler and radiator so we will get to that later. I also took all the crossmembers and seam welded and boxed in all the weak points to help with the all the HP this thing is going to make and then POR15ed those as well.







Now that the Chassis is mostly finished we can start assemble of the mountain of parts that’s going to be going into it.

For those that know me, all my cars may be “flashy” or “ricey” or whatever but they were all fast. My old wagon was packing 545whp daily driven and this car is no exception. From a gracious sponsorship from Brian Crower we attained the entire top level product line for this motor.

2.7L Stroker Kit 8:4:1 Compression
Darton Sleaves
1mm Oversized Intake/ Exhaust Valves
Ti Springs/ Retainers
Stage 3 Race Cams

To compliment these parts we added all the best supporting mods…
ARP Crankcase Bolt Kit
ARP Headstud Kit
Cosworth Oil Baffle Plate
Cosworth High Volume Oil Pan
Cosworth Blueprinted High Volume Oil Pump
Cosworth Timing Belt Guide
Cosworth Head Gaskets
Greddy Timing Belt

Machine work was done by Dan Benson who’s very well known for his sleaving. He bored, and balanced the entire rotating assy for 9000 rpm rev limit which is great for a 2.7L. Also fully Ported the heads with a like 20 angle Valve Job.

After the Block came it was given to the pros at PIA for assembly. They did a great job putting the long block together for us and it will be returning for Tim @ Surgeline Tuning to dial it in on the dyno.

So now on to the supporting mods. Currently we only have enough fuel and a turbo to make 650ish whp so when I get more funds will put the big boy turbo (or twin!?!) in and punch out the target goal of 850whp. We are going to run Direct port Meth injection using the AUX Injector ports in some APS tumbler deletes and a direct port nitrous kit in the intake manifold for extra fuel so we might be able to squeeze more out.

So far this is what we have (many of these parts are from the old Wagon):

Engine:
Agency Power Crank Pulley
Unorthodox P/S Pulley
Unorthodox Alternator Pulley
NGK Iridium Plugs
Cusco Motor Mounts
P&L SS AVCS Lines
P&L SS P/S Line

Fuel:
Aeromotive 20gal Fuel Cell
Aeromotive A1000 Fuel Pump
Aeromotive High Volumn Fuel Rails
Aeromotive Fuel Regulator
X2 Walbro Inline Helper Pumps
Custom 5lt Surge Tank
Full Russell Fittings/ Hardlines
RC1400cc Injectors

Turbo/ Intake/ Exhaust:
Turbonetics GTK650 Turbo
Tial 44mm Wastegate
Turbo XS Externally Gated Up-pipe
Turbo XS TMIC Core
GTspec V2 Header
Custom Rotated Turbo Pipe
Custom Down-Pipe
Custom Exhaust
X2 Magnaflow Race Mufflers
Custom Intercooler Piping
PnT High Flow Intake Manifold
Custom Billet 75mm Throttle Body
APS Tumbler Deletes
Agency Power Phenelic Spacers

Electronics/ Meth/ Nitrous:
AEM Stand Alone EMS
Custom AEM Direct Port Methanol Injection Kit
NX Express Direct Port Nitrous Kit
NX Express Intercooler Sprayer
AEM Uego Wideband Gauge
AEM Tru-Boost Boost Controller
AEM Digital Volts Gauge
AEM Digital Oil Pressure Gauge
AEM Digital Oil Temp Gauge
AEM Digital Water Temp Gauge
AEM Digital Fuel Pressure Gauge

Okay on with the Assembly!!!!!



For starters I coated the engine in a nice flat black engine coating to give it a different look. I want to showcase the performance parts installed on top it. I am starting with wiring and fuel.



Installed the tumblers, injectors and taped the aux ports for the water/meth nozzles. Now its time to hard-line fun! I decided to go hardlines because I can keep things much tight and better secured. Got all the Russell fittings and hose at TH Motorsports and the prices were great. A+ to TH for Hooking me up! Pics of the finished fuel system on Friday! I am on a very tight schedule so I will have progress pics every Friday and Monday.

This project is going to blow minds.

Great work as always, Johann. Having seen this project from early on, it's been quite amazing to see Johann's attention to detail and fabrication work on this.

Keep up, can't wait to see this beast on the road.

What? This is no joke. This is insanity. Its really crazy getting to build a car with everything I have ever wanted in it. It like stepping into a dream every time I walk into the garage. You should see the rest of the mods list, but I'll be saving that till later.

Yeah I'll be posting Pics every Friday and Monday because I am on a tight schedule so progress will be fast and consistent. I promise this won't be one of those update for like 3 weeks and then nothing for months. Looking at all there is to do I expect the project to finish around December but I will be trying to push for sooner. Drivetrain and suspension is bolt on but everything , exhaust, intercooler piping, fuel, brakes, and a little wiring will all be made from scratch. Also there will be extensive body work couple with a full race spec roll cage, widebody, etc etc...

I'm starting the fuel rails tonight but its gong to take some time as I have never worked with hardline and I got a really nice bending and flaring tool so it should go pretty good. I am running 5/8" line from the fuel pump to the y-block on the motor to dual 1/2" lines through the rails and into the regulator. Then a 3/8" return line. I got some nice bulkhead fittings so I can run hardline up to the firewall and then 1.5ft of soft line to the motor.

I got all black/silver Russell fittings and natural silver Summit Hardline so the fuel system will be a perfect match for the color theme of the car. Everything thats going in will ether be black, polished white or anodized red. I have taken alot of time getting all my parts togather so that they are not only high quality but will fit and look right with each other. As Ty said there is a very high attention to detail because I have the time to make it the exact way I want it and with almost everything being made from scratch I can make it the way I always thought it should be. This is very exciting for me and I am sure none of you will be disappointed with my progress and the build.

Johann, it looks sick and I cannot wait to see the rest of the build. My only concern is how is this build more extreme than lets say mine, 9vapors, and billy boi's. Have you looked into what each of us are doing to our cars?
