amazing as always......

quick question... on the brake lines... did you make sure to keep the front 2 and the rear 2 the exact same length (the 2 fronts being the same and the rears being the same)

These are hard lines. They don't need to be the same length because there is no expansion in the line. The flex lines are all the same length.

I'll have an update soon. Got some parts back from welding and had a couple quick jobs roll through to keep the $$ coming in. I should have something worth posting up tomorrow or the day after.

my guess, for equal pressure to each caliper... so the backs grab just as much as the fronts so you dont have front heavy or rear heavy breaking...
i mean thats how i could see the physics working out on that one

If they are flex lines the longer line will have more expansion and the brake bias will be all crappy.

Well with 10:1 compression and stage 2 cams I am hoping for like 3100ish

Hey guys sorry about that. I had to put the Foz on the back burner for a week so I could get a few quick $$ makin jobs to pay the bills. However I did manage to get some time in this last week and weekend on the Foz before another job showed back up.

While I was taking a break on the Foz a buddy of mine TIGed up some parts for me since I don't have a tig. My P/S rez, coolant tank, radiator, and my coolant manifold. I ended up welding the intercooler and intake manifold myself with my spool gun. Welds were ugly but they had good penetration so I just grinded them down.

BOV and intercooler pipe finished up and installed..



Next was starting on getting all my lines finished. For my lines I have welded on AN adapters with puch-lock fittings to make maintainance easier. So I started with mounting all my crap.



For the coolant manifold because I have a V-Mount and the radiator is so low I welded in a fillter cap into it. This is just a threaded cap not a pressyre cap the coolant tank has that. Its like an 02 wrx setup.



Got some of the lines for the turbo figured out..



And stepped back for a nice engine shot..



Last I got a good amount of the fuel lines and pieces mounted for the fuel delivery system.



So the GC8 project I have been working on is back from what was sopposed to be getting painted but its taking too long to I told them to give it back after it was jammed so I could finish it and get paid. I'll be working on that most of the week but I will still be putting in the weekends on the Foz to keep it moving along. Once the GC is done I'll have the time and most importantly the money to get the engine built and order the last few parts I need to actually finish this thing.

will you take a picture of your throttle body please. it just looks like your piping goes from your intercooler to under your intake manifold, i would love to see a close up of how its set up... doesn't look like much room under there. Thanks!

Meh itbs on a Subaru aren't really needed. This cars throttle response probably be faster then I can handle initially... Lol

I'll have a little update on Monday. Got some more pieces mounted and started tackling the wiring a bit. I finally have a real deadline set and I'm getting very close to having the fab work done to get ready for removing parts for paint and powder.

Johann.

Hey all. First here is that pic you ask for ben...



It goes up in the center much like the plastic LGT manifolds. It is very tight I had to do some trimming on the throttle body to get it to fit.



I got some work done over the weekend. Got my fuel lines pretty much ran. Ran a few of the coolant lines for the turbo but I am still waiting on a few fittings to come in to do the oil breather and oil cooler lines. SHould have those any day now. So I decided to start into the wiring a bit. First was to remove all the crap I wasn't going to need out of the harness.

ABS, Airbags, Heater/ Blower motor, Alarm, Keyless Entry, Fogs, Cruse Control, Door wiring (windows/ locks), and DCCD (my tranny dosen't have it).

There is about 10lbs of wiring right there. Next will be to drastically shorten the harness to fit everything on one consoldated location. I'll have one harness going to rear for taillights and fuel pump, one going forward for headlights and radiator fans. The ECU will go under the middle of the dash along with the OBD2 Plug and then foward to the engine. FInally I'll have one more strand going to the cluster. I should probubly get another 40lbs out of this thing easy and bot the engine and interior fuse boxes will be going in the box with the battery. So there is still a long way to go with this wiring.

Not a ton of stuff left I am on the last page of my To-Do list... It was 5 pages long when I started... The GC8 is coming together well so I'll be back on this project full time soon.

Yes it is. It's a nice piece I like it. Originally I was looking at the forged piece which is round but given it's placement I think the square shape is better.

It looks great. Ive been looking for one to relocate to my fire wall and wasn't sure how big they actually were but looking at your pic I think I will go with the Moroso one.

Cheers mate.

Hey all. Work on the GC8 has slowed the progress of the Fozz but I am pulling double shifts and working late into the night to get stuff done.

Last night I was up till 2 finishing up the rest of routing the hoses.

Oil Cooler:



I was going to weld steal bungs to each breather but it was going to be kinda chunky so I fabed this up to inegrate them together.



Welded the bung on the oil return for the turbo..



Re-instralled the valve covers after sanding down the breather fitting thing...



Here is what the bay looks like with about 90% of the hosing ran. Pretty clean I think.



I also managed to install the flex pipe and the last vband in my turboback exhaust and get everything welded up. Tomorrow my spare STi block is going to be machined so get ready for all new fancy internals so while its gone I will be tearing the engine bay down for paint/ powder/ and finish welding. The next update I'll be finishing up the sheet metal in the engine bay and over the muffler as well as fabrication on a rear diffuser and trailor hitch attachment as well as new aluminum bumper beams, ducting for the v-mount, cutting out the lexan etc.... Stay tuned.

Johann
