Default 02 WRX s258 front mounted

So, a couple weeks ago,I'm driving to work, minding my own business and a chunck of **** bouncing down the road hits my oil filter just hard enough to poke a smallish hole in it, spray oil on my wrapped headers and start on fire. I was able to put the fire out and it really didnt damage too much. I made an estimate, had the adjuster come out, and got a check in the mail with which I decided to put to good use. What follows is something I have been thinking about doing for awhile but just didn't have the funds to do it.

A little info on the car: 02 WRX, Eagle/Wiseco, ARP, PPG gearset, HY35

New parts: Crower stage 3 cams, Crower springs/retainers, Deatschwerks 1300cc injectors, STI oil pan/pickup, Ebay EL header chopped to hell and molested, twinscroll t3 s258

I'm a retard and didn't have my camera with me during the header molesting while the engine was still in the car, but I will get some of those up as soon as it goes back in. I pulled it to put the cams/springs/retainers in.

Oh, and it has become very apparent that I cannot TIG weld better than the average 12 y.o. Chinese girl but oh well.




I'm just using one WG, but the runners are separated all the way to the valve

Just one question, will this fit with the radiator? Will you have to run no fan on one side or maybe a slim-fan?

also do you have any pictures of underneath the car?

I hate to be a dick, but that's 3 questions.

1. No it will not fit with the stock radiator. I bought a civic radiator and it will sit on the drivers side of the car.

2. I'm no 100% sure where the fans will go, but I do have 2 slim fans that will go in somewhere.

3. I don't have underneath the car right now as the engine is out of the car still. I thought I had included a pic with the engine flipped over, but I guess I missed it so here it is:


The yellow marks on the oil pan is approximately where the oil drain will end up.

I had just gotten off of work at 7:30 am, too tired to pay attention.


Have you thought of doing a v-mount instead?

You make the radiator sit lower and with the top closer to the engine at an angle, then you put the intercooler up top so it gets more air.

I'm interested in your wastegate set-up. Why not use two?

1. space, which I could have overcome.
2. money, I already had the 45mm Turbosmart WG and I deemed it large enough for the job at hand.

This is one sick ass setup. Will be interesting to see how it all turns out and what power it puts down.

Update: I got what seems like everything finished up today. I got it started and run a little. The tune is still with Cobb and I am switching to Romraider hopefully with speed density and I just didnt have the time today to mess with it. Before anyone asks, the air filter is going to be covered by a sweet little cover that I made but forgot to take a picture of. Enjoy!

You are running a set up like this with a tiny Honda radiator and you expect to have your wife be comfortable driving it?

My wife has no idea how big the radiator is.

The cooling system would concern me more, but this is not a roadrace car. It will never see full boost for more than 10 seconds at a time. If it happens to be a problem, I will get a thicker core and reroute the intake plumbing a little bit.
