Default Bugeye 550+whp build

So I thought I'd start a thread about the build that I'm in the middle of putting together. It's not very "one of a kind" but, should yield impressive results and have a unique taste to it.

It all starts with the free, donated block I got from a friend at the dealership I used to work at out of an 05' Subaru Forester 2.5X. It's an EJ255 block and supposedly had blown out ring lands on all 4 cylinders. I slowly put together a hybrid build plan on what I wanted to make of it reusing the 2.0l heads from my 2002 WRX.

Well, after 2 major incidents (spinning a bearing in the wrx, and leaving the dealer and joining the crew at FAST of West Chester) my hybrid build became a little more involved than I had first planned. I purchased a new more reliable daily driver and started saving for an insane motor build.

Being around all the track/show ready imports that would flood into the shop, on top of having the support from the owners and fellow techs, I made the dream of having a 500+ whp Subaru a reality.

At this point, this is the build-up of parts I have to put the engine together.

- EJ255 semi-closed engine block
- Darton dry sleeves
- O-ringed block w/ receiver grooves in heads
- SCE copper head gaskets
- Nitrated STi crankshaft
- CP 9.0:1 pistons (stock 99.5mm bore)
- Manly turbo tuff I-beam rods
- ARP case bolts
- 11mm oil pump

- S20 2.0l heads, ported and polished, CNC'd for chamber
- GSC stage 2 cams
- GSC beehive springs and titanium retainers
- Supertech cam followers
- Manley +1mm exhaust and intake valves
- Held together with L19 head studs

- Complete Full Race Turbo kit
- BW EFR 8374 Twinscroll Turbocharger w/ 1.05 A/R
- Full Race Ceramic coated twinscroll exhaust manifold w/ uppipe
- Full Race Downpipe
- Dual Tial MVS external waste gates and dump tubes
- Full Race FMIC kit for reverse mounted intake manifold

- 06' STi 6 speed transmission w/ custom southbend clutch & OEM flywheel
- Custom deleted TGV's
- Cosworth Intake manifold
- Ported drive-by-cable TB
- Haltech ECU

I don't exactly have the fueling system thought out completely yet but I'm going to hold off on E85 for the time being. The longblock is just about complete at this point, believe all the machine shop has left is to port the heads to the intake/exhaust manifolds. Any questions/advise is appreciated.

Dual Walbro 465, Surge tank, bigger fuel lines, 2000cc injectors is what you are thinking about for E85

Your setup should be good for >700whp on E85. I would do the Outfront closed deck if I were you (cheaper, no dropping sleeves)

That defeats the point of having different threads. That's why they are separated.

Painted the long block OBP, I thought it looked better than just clear black. The manifold put me back a couple bucks with all the machine work and powder coating. I'm very curious on how the 90mm throttle body is going to make the dyno graph look up top.
