Well good news! finally got all my gaskets so the assembly can begin over the weekend, il take some pictures for you guys but I'm hoping to have the entire engine finished, turbo mounted and fuel pump installed by Sunday.

Then just got to wait on my oil pick up to arrive, was on back order so it's coming direct from the manufacturer. Still lots to keep me busy though!

Well 370whp would be my ultimate goal but I must be mindful of the transmission, I am thinking 350whp to start and i know these mods are capable of the 390whp range.

Perrin makes this but its only 3" to 2.4" tapered.............



then the APS style inlets fittings are in totally the wrong place and cannot be altered to fit.... custom it is!

have you looked into the AMR inlet? its relatively new to the market...not sure if it will work with your application....but its worth looking into.

yeah I had a look, they say it will fit but i dont see how? Its the same design as the aps inlet I sold but the way the inlets are arranged conflicts with the plastic inlet manifold style of the 09 WRX.

Did make some good progress today though, got one of the heads all torqued up, cams installed etc. Do the other side tomorrow, turbo, headers and intake manifold tomorrow hopefully.

contact phatron of phatbotti tuning if your interested in an e-tune via open source. don't know if i missed your engine management...

car looks nice. looks smooth without the widebody fenders on the 2011 wrx. i'm starting to like the red too, although i always thought wrb would be my only choice.

good luck to you and your build.

thanks, I will be getting it dyno tuned probably by AMS in chicago, although I will need a good start up map for sure.

Yeah thats why I like the 09 WRX, got some of the nicer touches but not the widebody, I still only think the STI should have the widebody IMHO but maybe I am bias lol.

Made lots of progress on the weekend, Got the heads mated up and cams installed, I am a little concerned though, the cams are installed and torqued up to exact spec but they do not spin freeley. They seem quite stiff and I am wondering if they should move easily and if I should back off the torque a bit? Now the cams are lubed well on the correct bearing areas etc. Hmmm what to do, I dont want to risk jumping teeth on start up!!!

Also got the water pipes, secondary air system and headers wrapped and installed. Turbo is now mated up but wow its a tight fit, I think I will get my inlet made up, install it and then torque up the turbo, it will be impossible to get everything on afterwards!!!

funny you should say that!!!!!!

Checked it all over tonight and had 2 of the caps the wrong way round, everything rotates fine now.

Running into some issues with the Dom 3 being too big with the 3" compressor housing. Decided that as I am making my own inlet il move the turbo back by about half an inch. This means il be custom making brackets to hold the turbo as the fatory ones will be too short.

Oh well I like custom touches, makes it my own!

Well progress..... so mounted up the turbo and found it was waaay too close to the tgv housing and would be a total bitch to get any kind of pipe on there. Decided to mount the turbo back by 1/2" to give more space and hence made up some custom turbo mounts . Also got the injectors installed in the tgv's and covered till the rails go on and finally installed my new covert oil pickup and sealed everything up nicely.

Just waiting on my timing belt, custom inlet to be finished and to get a new cam cover (snapped the old one by accident) then we should be well on the way..

crappy cell phone pics..... again sorry




New one piece FP header and uppipe, nicely wrapped




Cams....... lol




Covert oil pickup, stunning build quality and great fit! Only $125!

It is only being moved back by about 1/2": so its not a huge difference for the downpipe, however the up pipe is built into the header with a flex joint so it allows for some give.

yeah feeling F stock location right about now!

that doesnt look like an APS turbo inlet pipe. Looks more like the Agency Power seeing how the nipples and stuff are different. As well as the mount.

Cant wait to see the finished build.

Hope everyone had an enjoyable xmas / holidays, apart from dealing with the nightmare known as UPS some more progress has been made..........

The turbo is now fitted, new brackets have been made to secure it in place. Custom made a 3" inlet and fabricated all the fittings exactly so fitment is good. Also had to make new turbo hoses for the wastegate etc, the old ones were too small lol.

Also installed the injectors, intake manifold, set the timing belt, installed fuel lines, cam covers etc. Only thing I am having an issue with is the turbo oil feed line. Now with the DOM3XTR I have it came with the STI oil line which does not fit the nipple on my steel lines. On Blouch's website they show a WRX oil line but it has the round banjo bolt style fitting on the end. Where exactly does that fit the block? I know there are a few areas but do you have to cut the hard lines and plug it off???

Any help appreciated!

More pics.....









Just finishing the install of my Walbro fuel pump today then just get the oil line fixed and we are ready to go!!

Oh also got my new used Rotas lol......

Might not stay this colour though and obviously the coils are not set properly yet.....

In a weird way, I kinda like the orange on red.

From that angle it looks interesting.

So had all the timing checked out by a very experienced Subaru tech and I did it correctly . Sounds silly but he is a friend so thought may as well get it checked and not destroy my valves.

The car is now going to be e-tuned by Phatron from Phatbotti tuning. Due to my remote location (about 9 hours from the closest AWD dyno) it seems like the sensible option and people have reccomended his services to me more than once.

So, oil line is being ordered, also getting an AEM UEGO and logging cable as Phatron suggested. Should not be long now till be turn it over for the first time!

Oh and I am also replacing all my turbo banjo bolts for new ones at my Subaru techs advice. He said any crap in the filter and its bye bye motor!!

White wheels would be sick. But yes they are a bitch to keep clean I spend so much time cleaning mine and as soon as I pull out of the driveway they are dirty again... but they look good when clean.
