I like the exterior alot, you did a good job with the graphics.

have you ever considered lifting it to go mudding? offroad? that would be nuts.

that lightbar looks beefy. suprised you were able to fit that with the fmic being there.

Thanks for the input everyone I will work on the harness, sorry the CF scoop is staying b/c I need the air flow (florida paths don't have much wind and are hot as hell)... we built a custom FMIC bracket to fit the mishi M line in there and it fit perfect with that light bar to get it to work. Needless to say it's not going to be ramming anything anytime soon on purpose.

I have considered the forester swap + jackson racing lift plates and a fender roll.. I think I could get 27" mud tires under there. I also have a 3/16 skid plate that is uninstalled until I get it tuned and know everything is cured and set.


Here is a video I made of it just to give a walk around of the latest advancements..



thanks for the input both positive and negative, i like it all.

It was a custom graphics job pieced together from various kits. I made sure to match the color of the graphics, that's where most "buy it now" packages fail. All one color is not how the wrc car is. It's not perfect, but it's close enough for me.

I really like everything except for that massive hoodscoop...I don't quite understand your comment about the airflow....I mean I get it, but I don't....you have a FMIC and I don't see an oil cooler under your scoop or anything. Plus I think a JDM sti scoop with a splitter would provide plenty of air and would look 100x's better. There prob alot of hot air coming out of that front vent which is what's important IIRC. (not an aerodynamics expert by any means though.) Not trying to hate at all...and if you like the look then to each his own.

Question for you.. it looks like you are running the Magnus short runner intake manifold...

How did you get the throttle cable to reach to the throttle body pulleys? When I put my OEM throttle bracket on the magnus manifold, the cables cannot reach the pulleys.

Maybe I'm just doing something stupid?

I had to fabricate a custom part for it. Just take a strip of metal from Home Depot or your local hardware store and bend it to make it work. Then you can fine tune the position of the TB cable. I do not however have the cruise control hooked up. Here's a closer pic:

Cool.. I figured that was what I was going to have to do.. but I wanted to check if there was a trick that I wasn't aware of or not

Keep up the good work!!

yeah I wish it was easier, but it really only takes maybe 30 minutes with the right tools. Don't be afraid to scrap a few trial pieces first, so getting the full 3 foot length stock is a good idea.

Here's a video I made of it starting up. It's still running WAYY rich b/c I had the stock injectors on a td04 running 19.5 psi, so you can imagine the injector latency and fuel map I was running. It's way too long and rich for 910cc injectors. When the car starts, it burns off a bunch of excess fuel--> BUT! It's running and just needs a tune. Even though the tune is off, it still sounds great to hear my Subaru run again.

On a side note, I've started cleaning up the engine bay with wire loom. Thanks nasioc

That's one hell of a drawn out mod list. You could have listed your mods in 1/5 the space. I'm surprised you didn't list what rotor you had in the right front separately from what you had on the left front. What kind of winshield washer fluid are you using considering you listed what kind of air is in your tires? Some mods you listed twice and 2 different parts for.

As I said in the Bugeye thread, this car is more an a tribute to eBay parts than the WRC car. For most of your parts it seems like you bought them off of an eBay catalog and that takes a lot away from the what you were going for. When you 1st glance at it you want to say "Ooooooh! ", but then when you do that double take you say "Oh... ".

IMHO you focus should have been on quality rather than quantity. That's what really gives a car props.

Thanks for the input.. negative yes, repeated yes, but still input. :P

Just to let everyone know the car now has a base tune on it and I'll be doing the 400 mile break in.. After that I'll start tuning for boost. So far so good, tuner said everything looked great and that I did a very impressive job on the build. The pics really don't do it justice, you gotta see this one in person. After I get tuned for boost, I'll be visiting various meets and shows around Florida.. keep an eye out for it yo!

updated first post with new vid

How is your tuner going to find the boost? Where is the boost? Is there even boost? What is boost? When how what boost?

Watched your video dawg, editing is off the hook but its kinda fast and I can see the mods. I looked for the boost in your engine, didn't find. Maybe if you used a better flashlight to enhance the video I can see mods and boost

I have a perrin MBC to set the boost, and the oem lamco gauge pack that will show boost levels on the interior... it will also show up in the tuning software on the pc too from the manifold pressure sensor during the OS tune. Oh yes, there will be boost. I think we will go for 18 to 20 psi on the 20g.. What do ya'll think?

lol really? sorry about that.. I'll fix it lmao.. the mod list probably needs to be updated, I've done so much work to it, been through many total setup revisions... I did have a momo on it before the kartboy, so that's how you run two knobs This is actually the fourth version of modifications on this car.

Update: Had some issues with the coolant feed line into the block, replaced it with braided steel. No more abrasion from the intake manifold! Also have a base map on it, here's a video of it idling with a few throttle blips just for fun. Tuned by "nick" 3gsucks, tampa's street tuner! For 910cc injections it idles really well.

In this video: AEM fuel pressure, AEM UEGO wideband AFR, auber instruments map sensor/gauge, auber instruments EGT tapped post turbo, and laamco stockers. I know the EGT is suppose to go in the hot cylinder, but I wanted to tap it post turbo just to prevent boost leaks. It's still a reference point, which is all I really need.
