Well, I am in a bit of a frustrating spot on that. I haven't gotten a chance to do much work on the car as I have been so busy lately. I currently have 8.5 cubic yards of landscaping mulch (almost an entire tri-axle dump truck load) sitting in a pile in my yard that I am trying to get spread. Beyond that, I also have a ton of other random crap going on which is making life generally hard.

Well, I haven't finished putting the car back together yet BUT, I did manage to purchase an F-250 Super Duty so that I can tow it more easily. No picts yet but its MASSIVE with the "super cab" and an 8ft bed!

I have pulled and installed motors in Subarus all by my self a number of times. If I had to guess, I have done this operation near 100 times without any assistance (or even a second person in the garage). Its not hard, it just requires experience to make it easy.

You're exactly correct, it doesn't take a lot to become really fast at this.

So once the motor is in and everything is good, what's next? (Stoptech 6 piston calipers to stop this beast<----- My vote )

AP > stoptech

Not sure how similar the ft86/FRS/BRZ front brakes are to STi fitment, but 6 piston AP calipers would be a good investment!

or the direct bolt on kit for the STi's

That lower set of APs are the real deal. No paint, no rubber boots!

P.S. Super super busy and haven't had much time for the car. I am maybe two hours away tough.
