Right, an update. A lot of updates, actually.

After sorting out the troubles i initially had with an engine and transmission, ran the car for a few trial runs. Got pretty decent times for shakedown passes, but again, a few issues were discovered.

Transmission was not shifting as it should. Partly down to the fact that one of the gaskets was leaking oil out of the box, and mostly because the shifter mechanism is VERY imprecise, coupled to the rachet shifter. Now a Mastershift paddleshifter is in charge of gearchanges.

Got the PPG front diff fitted as well, so FWD traction shouldn't be an issue anymore.

Dry sump has also been fitted as i want to avoid any more issues with oil starvation. Ever.

Most importantly, i was never really satisfied with the inlet manifold. Wasn't really up to scratch with the rest of the engine, so i decided to redo the whole thing, in order to prevent unequal cylinder charges and excessive intake temp. Most importantly, decided to go from FMIC to an A/W setup. Intercooler now sits...well, see picture. Each bank has its own double chamber plenum now, and the intake runners from the turbos are significantly shorter. Nitrous installation now doubles up as a methanol injection system too. The whole A/W setup is heavier (with water tank filled with ice, whole setup weighs some 7kg more than the comparable FMIC setup), but given the advantages it offers over the FMIC i think i can live with it.

We'll see what sort of official times it will produce now.

Btw, the engine and the rest of the car is complete, except for the gearbox - it seems it has developed a glitch with the valvebody, because as soon as it heats up a bit it starts misshifting and missing gears...sent back to AUS to have it checked. We got some preliminary runs on the dyno, but due to the gearbox problem couldn't fully wind the boost and timing up - so we're still sitting and waiting for the box to arrive. And that's taking FOREVER!

Did you do any mods to add support to the front where you cut the radiator support out? This is one awesome build, good luck and keep the post coming.

No, just cut it out. It's not some heavy load bearing part or crucially significant for the body rigidity, just holds the radiator, so i don't think that anything will fall apart

So- where is the radiator in this car?

Build looks awesome. Post a dyno graph when you have one.

There isn't a set bearing part number for the EZ30R. Rod bearings are easy but the main I need to measure when I open my block to make sure I have right clearances to get the right bearings. I had started emailing ACL last year but I'm not ire what happened to the guy I was working with...

Yeah they are standard 52mm rod bearings. You'll just need to order two sets. I have a feeling the mains will be simular in the fact that they will match some other Subaru bearing but will just need to order two sets to make one set and some spares. I'll have to pull up the part number on the rod bearings in a second. I need to either look it up or grab my notebook I know i have it writen in on a STi build's part list.

Sorry just seen this
I dont think the main shells from anything else will be of any use, the mains on the EZ30 are rather narrow, happy to be corrected though as i t look like we are stuck with subaru main shells

No problem dude. I've been dragging my ass on cracking my block open to measure cause I keep spending money on other parts of the car so I don't have motivation to split the block at the moment...

You can use the EJ bearings if you get rods made to accomodate them. That is what was done for the EZ30 in the blue GC8. It has argo rods.

We already knew that. We are talking main bearings, not the rod bearings.
