Thanks Sean. They are 07 Heads.

Thanks for the compliment man, hoping it comes together smoothly. As for the fuel line - I can't take credit for building the rest, but I can't take the blame for using a T, as I bought the system. I could look into a Y I suppose. . . The other two merged connections are Ys, so that is good.

No true problems, just getting rid of the extra sensors, and getting rid of the 7 year old electrical tape and making sure that they fit for the reversed intake.

I seem to have misplaced my crank position sensor socket in the loom, so I decided it would be a wise idea to quit for the night. (Are the injector and CPS the same socket??)

Removed -
Both TGV Motor sockets
Both TGV Sensor Sockets
PCV valve socket
Air solenoid socket
Possibly the oil pressure wire, cause its unplugged anyways and can run the ems off of my gauge.

I think that is it for now, but I would like to secure it using the little wire ducting that is on the intake manifold when stock if possible.

Outside of the wiring, got all timing done and covers on, put intake manifold on, and now just have to get this wiring situation figured out and I think I'll be done with this piece of the puzzle. I should have bought about 25' of every diameter hose at the store, and 20 clamps a piece. Getting sick of running to the store.

Edit - Per FSM - I'll be looking for the Orange / Blue and White / Blue. Note - I have 2 crank sensors. One is from a 2.0 and it DID NOT FIT.... and is why I was having issues finding the right one.

Little update. EFRs are supposed to be here end of May, so that means I only have to wait 8 more weeks to get it! Going to get my transmission Memorial Day weekend, so that is exciting. Motor is 98% complete, need to install spark plugs, and get my serpentine belt system done.

Had a 3/8" spacer made to rotate the throttle body 90 degrees. Would have liked to rotated 180, but I don't feel like getting a 19mm set of spacers and risk hitting the hood with my intake manifold.

Few fun pictures. Hope to get the AC, Alternator, Powersteering torqued down today, but might go for a bike ride instead.

When I was running my breather lines, I almost put the lines right down on the block, but then I figured oil would pool right at the T so I put them up where they are currently located.

Fuel Pressure regulator bracket got coated and baked today, and warranted a few photos. Fuel pressure gauge is taped so I dont whack it with something.

I'm debating bead blasting my AC / Alternator / PS pump pieces and doing those too.

The 2.0L cam and crank sensors look alike but are different diameters. The crank sensors should be the same between the 2.0L and 2.5. They fit into top of the oil pump so its not really block specific since 10, 11, and 12 mm pumps fit on both blocks. Maybe you had a cam sensor thinking it was a crank sensor that's why it didn't fit.

Oh no it fit physically into the hole for the crank sensor, but the electrical connector was different. I'm guessing the harness for the motors were slightly different, I know that the wire colors changed quite a bit from 04-07 STi so possibly it changed from 02-04.

Or its very possible I have a cam sensor, but pretty sure they are 3 prong not 2.

I've made a few of these silly mistakes along the way so nothing surprises me anymore.

No the 2.0L cam sensor is a two wire sensor and look nearly idendical to the crank sensor but the keyway is different. The AVCS cam sensor is a 3 wire sensor but it looks nothing like the crank sensor and the plug is quite different too.

I'm rocking a hybrid in my STi right now with 2.0L heads and I have the old STi long-block on the stand.

Their very well may be a difference in connector between the 2.0L and 2.5L crank sensors though as I've never had two of those side by side. I though you meant the sensor wouldn't fit in the hole.

This is what I think happened... the keyway is just slightly different.

Take a look at my for sale thread where I'm trying to sell it lol, ill need to change that. I never though about it being a non AVCS sensor. Thanks for heads up.

Layvon.

UPDATE! Been almost a month.

Motor is and has been done sitting in my living room, All that is left on that is to solder on my new connector for spark plug and to get my spacer that still hasn't been made yet.

Went to Toronto to buy my transmission from gtasti. Nice guy and had no issues dealing with him. Buddy and I tried poutine. (salty cheese curds and gravy over french fries). It wasn't that good.

Put my axle seals in my trans for the 05+ Axles and began the trans install. It was a fight, because I did it by myself, but I finished the install tonight. Have a torque solutions trans and pitch stop in place, pretty nice pieces. My shifter has every TiC / Kartboy bushing made and it felt really nice once I got it into place. I wanted to rake the gears pretty bad, but with no fluid in the trans, I figured confirming it went into every gear would be the best idea.

Changed out my clutch line late tonight also, that wasn't fun and as always with those little lines, nerve racking, one slip and you have a nice kinked hose. Used a flare wrench to bust it loose, then it was cake.

Finally, I went to connect the electrical portion of the trans, and for the first time of the night, I was stuck and bummed out... Can anyone advise about the NSS and the back up lights comign out of the trans? I dont know if I am going to need a new connector on one end or the other or what, but I couldn't seem to get any of the 2 extra plugs next to the dipstick to go anywhere. I did have the plug for the Vehicle speed near the dip stick, but nothing else.

Any help , much appreciated!

You are supposed to take the 2 plugs from your old tranny and swap them over...along with the 4 pin plug that connects to your (WRX) harness. You then cut the 2 wires that go to the DCCD solenoid on the rear of the 6 speed (usually green and black) from the 6 pin plug that came with the tranny and connect them to your DCCD controller of choice.

VSS plugs right in with no issue between any 98-07 Impreza.

Mine is an 04 STi though, which is why I was a little confused. Found out late last night that one of the plugs is for rear O2. So My 6 pin plug leaves for Back up lights, NSS, and DCCD.

Worst part about this is that I could have done this when the transmission was on the ground, now its in the car

Yep...should have read the 6 speed swap threads All DCCD 6 speeds that I have seen have the same wiring configuration. Once the engine is in an attached you should be able to pull the crossmember and let the tranny sag far enough to swap out the wrx sensors/ 4 pin harness. Or you can drop the tranny again...should be a lot easier without the engine in the car.

Tranny jack is the best $260 I ever spent!!

Are you saying that I need a 4 pin connector for the 07 then?

I guess I am confused, because I have an sti car and I just swapped transmissions. If I go to a 4 pin on my car, that will leave 2 wires unused for the dccd. I guess I am going to crawl around under my car when I get home to see if there are some ... quote unquote loose ends lol.

Thank you for the props on the build, my next time around I will have a tranny jack, but this time brute force n a thick head works for me.

Well... Problem solved.

Since it was dark when I finished yesterday I did not notice the heat wrap went to electrtical tape. Makes sense since this was in a impreza L before hand that it had the 4 prong plug in there.

I noticed 6 wires going in, and only 4 going to the plug and i was immediately happy. Tested the terminals with the Multimeter and came up with the NSS is on the left with the snap above, and the Reverse lights in the right. DCCD wires were threaded in with electrical tape doing nothing. Now...

To find the right plug for it! IF I can find the right plug, this wiring will be no problem since the wire is long enough to dangle to the ground as it is.

Thanks for the help though aboothman!!

Thanks man!

Ended up getting exactly what I needed from the fella above. I had same switches I needed installed, as I have the same black / white circle connectors. ... so that is taken care of.

Had a realization tonight that if I would have held onto my headers, vf39, and intercooler I'd have a running car right now. That kind of put me I'm the dumps a little bit cause it's still going to be another 3-4 months before base tune day..

Walbro just came out with the 485. its e85 safe and can flow enough e85 for up to ~600hp. It would bring 3 fail points down to 1. I'm not sure if you bought the pumps yet but I'd recommend it. I'm gonna run one in my mr2 build.

Mr. 2 eh? That's fun! My buddy has one and it is a riot.

I already have my fuel system completed so I cant really change at this point without losing my ass on it.

I am considering a check valve in front of each 044 once up and running. Thar way if one fails fuel isn't going back through it. Realistically one 044 is enough for my build when pulling from a surge tank.

Well, today was going to be the day to get the driveline back together. Or so I thought.

First started out by replacing ball joints. Old ones came out fine, but the ones I bought at Advanced were too big, so I'm going to take those back and try some others. My thought was to get some to get me by, and once I get some coils, get the whiteline tie rods / ball joints for having a slightly lower car, wont be hellaflush by anymeans, just a nice drop.

Then, since I canned that idea for the time being, I thought it would be a good time to throw on that DSS Aluminum shaft. I knew some minor adjustments would be made so I got out the grinder, plastic mallet and started. Had to grind the front of the rear sub frame, hit where the e brake cables go into the cabin, and it one of the rivets that has a bolt on it for tightening down ebrake cables. Wasn't that bad. I think I will get a utility knife and lob off the corner on my rear shifter bushing cause there is a small small rub there also.

The real problem is the fitment of the shaft. It might be okay... But It seems iffy.

This is with the shaft pushed in as far as it will go.


This is once I suck it back out to bolt up the DS to the rear Diff.



I know there is a seal there, but I think that the boss'd part of the splined piece is supposed to be fully seated is it not?

... Without asking the guy I bought it from, I'm guessing that this shaft is for a different impreza than what mine is or something. It was on this transmission at one point though, so thats why i'm hoping it is fine.
