clutch done, that 6-speed is HEAVY. I've done dozens of clutchs in everything from ford trucks to lamborghini's and Ive never seen a transmission stuck to the block like that.

Do you have to rotate the compressor housing to get that hot side IC pipe off?

such a sweet setup. I am so jealous of the clean work.

I am also going with V-mount setup on my 04 sti.

If you don't mind sharing, how did you make the stock location alternator work in your setup?

Thanks...

take the subi belt off push the alternator all the way down, buy a belt from I believe a 2002 Tacoma 4cyl and that put that on. Its shorter so the alternator doesn't have to come up that high. Also I have the thickest intake spacers from Grimmspeed. They are a little pricey but they make the alternator clear and do a damn good job of keeping the manifold cooler.


PS: I wish I had a white 04

Default Mr. BMW325ix

I am a newbie for sure, first Subie is a 2011 Legacy 3.6R Limited, and don't know much about the turbo thing. However I have been around fabrication for a long time and you sir do very nice work. It is very sad that I live so far away as I would really love to see your handiwork up close so I could touch it, with your permission first of course, and really get a chance to see this very nice work. I would likely learn a thing or twenty as well.
Good luck sir and keep up the great work.

Just getting sick of it, no idea of a price yet. I know the market for modified vehicles isn't the strongest. This car also has crash history, fixed very well and drives great but its still in the history.
