I'll have those both finished ether today or tomorrow. The rear diffusor main plate will be at around a 25 deg angle and it will have an underspoiler around 15 deg. My spoiler I am making adjustable from 5-20 deg so I can dial it in once I get up to speed.

For now I only have one pic. I just finished this installment of work to the GC project I have been working on so now it goes to paint giving me some time to really push on the Forester to finish up the bulk of the project.

Picked these up from Glen at Prosport Gauges...



I got 7 Guages:
Boost
Fuel Press
Oil Press
Air/ Fuel Ratio
x2 EGT
Volts
T4 Sized Turbo Blanket
50' of Exhaust Wrap

These are all there new EVO series which has a sweep and a digital read out for quick reference when at speed at the track. All premium senders so they are small which is good because I have limited space. I got 2 EGT gauges. One for the exhaust and a while back I used one of there older EGT gauges to make a Brake Temp Guage. These new EVO series gauges have a faster sender so I should get faster results. I take the sender and drill into the pad material and it tells me the brake pad temp. The plus with this is that if I have a pad that has a max operating temp of 1100 deg and my gauge is reading close or above that I can ether change my braking style or swap in some hotter pads. This will help me run the best pad for the verious tracks I attend.

I'll have some more detailed pics of them when I get ready to install them sometime next week. Also for anyone looking at their turbo blankets wondering what size they need the T3 sized one works perfectly on WRX turbos and STi Vf39s or 16gs. The T4 size that I got is a pretty good fit for the Twinscroll turbos VF36,37s

Heres a pic of the T3 on a VF39/ 16g that I just installed on the GC I'm working on.

Hey all got a good update to post today. The GC was finished a few days ago so I finally got to start putting some real time into the Forester.

Got started with fabbing up the spoiler brackets. I think the Hatch is a little weak from being stripped out so I am going to change it a little bit later this week.



After that I got started on the rear bumper support/ rear diffuser. After 2 Days I ended up with this. It only weighs 14lbs and it may not be very pretty but not all things that are functional are so. Oh and becuase racecar...











Nice step back shot...



Lastly for that day I finished up making some bumper/ hatch mounts. Piece of round pipe with a nut welded to the end. Slip the bumper on, shut the hatch screw in place...

Next was getting everything ready for paint so I started buttoning up the rear flares. I had a few ideas of what I wanted to do on the rear of the flares but I ended up just fitting them to the quarter pannel. They are a lot stronger and this is much simpler.



Next up was bolting them to the chassis. I decided I would make a tool to counter sink the metal to fit flush-mount screws. Took an m14 nut and welded an m6 nut in sided and make a sort of press.



Wroked like a charm. Going to be keeping this tool for a long time...

That rear end looks so good... so mean.


Oh, btw, what's that metal box under the hood with the two round air filters?

Hey all sorry to the delay in updates. I worked my ass off the last 7 days to get it as close to finished as I could get it to get it to the NW Big Meet Car show. Some of you saw it there maybe it was a good time. Anyways lets go back a few days....

Once the fenders were all welded up and all the triming was finished it was finally time for some body filler.



I spent about 3 hours per side and I only did the rear flares. I'll be going back and taking care of the imperfections and other dents after I get it running.

All sanded ready for primer:



And... primed:



Next up was finally getting some color on it. Started with the cage first because it didn't require any masking. The color is very finiky so it has to do 3 super light coats and it still has a couple reactions but overall it turned out pretty good.



Then it was time to mask off the cage and paint the interior in a nice gloss black.



After that it was time to finish up the remainder of little things. Getting the mirrors mounted. Finishing the spoiler mounts and bolting the hatch on. Finishing the ducting for the v-mount. Very proud of this...



At this point I was working so many hours and so fast I kinda forgot to take pics... The white sealer I was planning on spraying was no good so all I could do was get 1 coat of some leftover black from the Legacy and some gunmetal grey from an R32 Skyline I painted a couple years ago one it so it was all one color. However I have pics from the show to show how she finally turned out. It was well recived even though it was not completly finished. I think the most common thing I herd was "this is insane" and "OMG". Also the GC project that I have been working along side this won best GC8 and it currently at Maxwell for tuning. I'll have more pics of that in a few days.

Well enjoy. I still have to swap the blocks after Mike at PIA finishes building it. Get a few undercarrage parts powder coated and then install the wiring. Once its done it will go to PIA for tuning and if there is enough time before WCSS I'll finish up the body work and get it in its final color.

No way... I have to see this in person when I'm back out west. Will you be making your way south in it very often?

My block is still not finished and I don't really want to pull anything off it till it is. I also got a new job so I'm not working in the shop 7 days a week anymore. I have all the remaining parts to get it running ordered though. And I have been working on the harness in the house when I have time but I doubt the Forester is going to get any love for at least another week or 2. Kinda just waiting on this block. I didn't want to finish up the body work and repaint it untill it was running so I could put it through its paces and make sure its noy going to rub anywhere or anything so...

I'll have an update as some point...

Your car looks really badass.
Can you post more pictures when you get a chance? I'd like to see a side view that shows the profile of the rear spoiler and a rear shot that shows rear diffuser straight on. Good luck with the new job!

Well for an N/A engine the only other supporting mod I would do is a header.

You'll need to go internal to make any more real power. Higher comp pistons and cams should get you close.

You could also supercharge it. Its easier and cheaper then doing a turbo and it can get you an additional 50-70 hp on stock internals so easily reach 200whp.

There are some kits out there but you'd be better off building it from scratch using a SC out of another car that came with one. Eaton m62 off a 230 kompressor (sp) would be a nice fit.

$2 grand. Maybe less if you get good deals on parts. Just make sure not to **** up while tuning for it.
