Well....its been a while. Ran into some issues with the first motor. Ended up blowing a head gasket after ~2500 miles in my STi.
Heres a pic of how the head studs were installed.
Heres a pic of how far they should have been into the block.
And teh aftermath.....stripped block
Tried to have the block machined for bigger studs, but that didnt work out and the block had to be scrapped.
My STi is back on the road now, motor built and assembled by Keegan Engineering. Mike's been a pleasure to work with and very knowledgable. He used to work at Cosworth and I believe he used to help build Easystreets motors.
Now that the crap is outta the way....onto the progress pics. I am trying to make Easystreet's shootout on may 5th in Vegas
ESX Subaru Shootout, May 5th, 2013 Las Vegas Speedway
That means double time
