Default Drift STi Build: Cut Knuckles Post 179

Hey Guys, so heres my old car. I drove it all year in D1GP USA, finished 7th, it was cool. its done me well.

http://motormavens.com/2010/01/carsp...ker-texas-s13/

So, chanced on to a GDB shell for cheap, pretty sure it was an 04 STi at one point. and I'm building this car to bring the heat.

480ish RWHP
460ish Tq
350Z Gearbox
Z32 Differential
17x9.5+30 Front 18x10+25 Rear with 255/275 stagger

Cage when it just got back from install.


Fender Tubs, which are cut up trailer fenders, work so perfect for 60$


Roll Cage/Interior After Paint, ABM from the 10+ Camaro



Surge Tank setup, still need to clean it up with the wire wheel, but started fabbing the hardlines (shoot me in the face). Aeromotive Filter to a Bosch 044 Inline. we've done up to 650 or so on a single 044 through Porsches -4 fuel line so I don't think I'll have any issues with a single pump. Wish I still had my fuel rail insulator stash from the SR/KA, those would be really good for mounting it with some isolation.


Fuel Sender: Walbro 255 in the cradle, AQP socketless hose to a bulkhead fitting, the Return is a -6 welded on top of the stock return so that the OE fuel crossover siphon should still work.




Bill got me some pics of things I should be doing to Diff front support, so that's taken care of, besides waiting on some fancy Stance Solid Bushings and the cutting to get the R200 to bolt up to it.



Then on the rear sub-frame I knocked out all the eccentric bolt holders and welded washers over the slot, those things always ended up slipping on the 240SX and I hate them. None of the photos of what I did to fit the diff came out well, but I basically just enlarged the area that the 5H R200 Stubs fit into and then reinforced it onto itself.


Then I got some ARP Ben Hurr chopper studs pressed into the front, they're like 3.5in long with quick starts. I was about to just go ahead and cut the steering arm but decided to hold off until the car was rolling.

SPL Parts Prototype Lateral Links.


How to make a 350Z gearbox work on an EJ257


Hooker Harnesses came in the mail a few days ago.


Other Points of Interest:

I'll be using Driveshaft Shop level 5 axles. the big kids ones with the 930 CV Joints custom made to adapt to the R200.

I'm trying to spec out a small housing 35R, Im used to a 30R on a 2.0L in the 240SX, so I figure a E-Cover .63 Housing 35R should spool about the same.

I'm working with Warren from Sparco about getting some Circuit Pro's in there, good seat for people with birth giving hips like me.

Picking up the motor this weekend and it'll go straight to the builder to get some Mahle Pistons and Eagle Rods and all the other goodies for a stable 480whp.

So Far Sponsors Include:

Stance USA: Mike at Stance has been nice enough to supply a set of GR+3s for the car. Hopefully they'll be here soon, as they're in the process of custom building them specifically for my needs.

Hooker Harness: Scott at Hooker sent me those two beauties you see there. I won't ever buy anything other than Hooker, just because the quality and options ruins everyone else's, for a price that's competitive with the Euro 4 Point Harnesses.

SPL Parts: Kuah is in the process of producing Lateral Links, Trailing Links and Adjustable tie rod ends that will be available, I've used them for years on my 240SX and wouldn't trust anything else on the Subaru.

I can get 350Z transmissions for free, so even if I spend 3500$ making it work, I can break it as many times as I want and still come out cheaper than the non DCCD Legacy Spec B trans I'd have to buy otherwise.

The R200 is alot stronger than the R180, and even the R200 is kinda at its limits for the power I want to run. so I figured I'd throw it in from the get go.

Cool stuff, but those bent x-brace members and the cold, goopy welds on the cage are really bothering me.

Nice start on your drift build. Hope you let us know how you chop up the spindles for steering angle and how that affects other areas of your alignment (like ackerman and stuff) since I am getting ready to do mine on my bugeye. Have you ever driven a rwd scuby before? Just curious cause the handling is waaaaaay different from a 240, at least it seemed that way to me when I started drfting in my wrx. Maybe its just my alignment and suspension setting and stuff but our cars seem to push harder into corners and are more prone to a snap oversteer. Then again my car is way too low to the ground so that could be part of my problem Good luck with this thing and keep us updated!!!

I kinda dig the door bar style.

But I know what you mean on the welding, That's probably the worst section though, The rear section and main 6pt structure of the cage look alot better.

Doors got painted last night

Engine/Rack/Column/Dashboard/Console are all sitting in the garage now. hopefully it'll be fully painted by Feb 1st.
