Default My Bugeye project ....

Well 2yrs ago I made a trade to get another bugeye , I really regretted parting ways with my wagon ....well it has turned into one of my projects that never seems to end ...but for the first time in a while I actually feel like I can see some light at the end of the tunnel....well on to some pics


Here she is when she came home missing all kinds of parts and generally just trashed ( note the missing brake caliper) the car was really misrepresented ...It was a big fat turd ...


And it made its way into the garage with the original intention of swapping in a used motor and the transmission that came with the car ...and making it a runner and a DD , but so many of the parts were in poor shape ...





And so I purchased a 6spd swap and brembo brake setup with braided lines from a 05 STI and set in on a Hybrid build with Maxwell power built hybrid CNCed heads and a built block with Pauter rods and CP pistons and after several turbo purchases I belive I have the one I intend to use a BW s200sx-56 , I have 2 6262s one with a .63 and one with a .82 I have thought about but the BW is smaller and better DD turbo .



And after a long time it is finally back on its wheels and has R180 in it and a 07 STI steering rack and 07 limited struts and a set of GF210 springs , with whiteline 27mm sway bars ...It is coming along slowly but surely it has a AEM EMS controlling it with AEM boost and AF gauges ...

She is in need of a lip and JDM scoop, new headlights and paint after she is running which should be soon ....Wish luck getting the time to make further progress

Good luck and great progress made. I can relate since I also bought a Bugeye late last year to use as a DD, but it's been more in the shop than on my driveway

Well as the world urns I order more parts ...all the gaskets are here to put it back together ....I am still fighting with myself on whether I should use my BW 256 or one of my 6262s ...other then that I have a Perrin stealth intercooler on its way and some 04-05 tail light and a 04 STI cluster ....I hope to see it running by the fall ....and getting fresh paint in the spring !! More pics to come !!
