The front end looks exactly how I want mine to look, except I have 04 Wagon but I mean the color scheme. So badass. Leave it like that!

I tried to get it split open last night, but the case halves were being stubborn, I was hungry, and there was gear oil everywhere. I finally got it to cooperate this morning.

It even broke this, which is probably why it was locked in gear.

I found the missing piece up in the front diff.
Yea I that feeling when that **** goes bad. The pieces of teeth ended in front, but destroying the front diff at the same time.

It was just a matter of time, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon or to any gear other than 1st or 2nd. I'm totally happy it wasn't the motor though.

I'm interested in how you have your intercooler and radiator setup. Can I get some closer pics on that and maybe some more info?

Nope, it's all on a need to know basis.

The radiator and intercooler are bolted together low on the sides and also have the top plate/splitter to hold them together, basically as one unit. The radiator sits in the stock peg locations on the sub-frame, and the intercooler sticks forward past the core support and takes the place of the AC condensor. The turbo is clocked to point towards the strut tower, and there is a 90* coupler that takes the piping to the front. After that, I think you can see just about everything else.

I think the intercooler is close to 3" thick, and there are 2 e-fans on the back of the radiator. I also bent a cowl/vent to fill the bumper opening and direct all of the air through the intercooler and radiator.

These are the best pictures I have:

I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but I'm guessing the answer is no. They are AN fittings with Push Lock hose.

This was put on the back-burner due to some personal goings-on I was having, but I am back working on it and wanting to get it on the road soon.

I have decided, after much debate, on my new transmission setup. I will be using an 05 STi 6mt transmission. The OE gears will be replaced with the Rallispec Spec B gear set. While the transmission is open I will be having the other synchros and parts inspected/replaced/refreshed. I am having a one piece driveshaft made in lieu of using an STi or Auto shaft. For the rear end I am swapping in a 3.9 r180 out of an 05 STi. Axles will be hybrids using the SuberDave hybrid races.

All of that will hopefully keep the axles the weak point. I prefer this as they are cheaper and easier to replace than transmissions and clutches.


On to the progress pictures from tonight.

I pulled the front lip off because it will be getting replaced. I don't remember the last time the lip was off, but it sure does look weird and naked without it.




I will be swapping in an r180 so obviously the r160 had to come out, and this required that the exhaust be dropped. I took this opportunity to take some pictures of the back side of the "muffler" since I apparently had failed to get some before I installed it. Here it is, in all of its glory.






I also don't remember the rear diff coming out this easy last time I did it. Maybe it's because it's only been in there for 1,300 miles?

Just ordered my gears. Hopefully it's smooth sailing from this point.

I had my friends from Fathouse Fabrication pick up this trick piece for me at the DSM Shootout. It's a Magnus billet oil filter. It's serviceable and can be taken apart to easily inspect the oil and clean the filter element. There is also a magnet on the bottom of the filter to catch any errant metal.

Thanks, but there can be only one Highlander!





Tonight I started prepping my rear axles for the hybrid conversion.

These are the "hybrid" axles I bought. I didn't buy them to use them, I only bought them to rob the inner r180 CV off of them. It is an interesting way to make a hybrid axle, but definitely wasn't thought through for torque load.




You can see where the sleeve actually twisted under the stress from torque.




I'm not an engineer, but I think the main error was in the thickness of sleeve used. I would think a thicker sleeve would have worked better, as well as drilling holes and welding the sleeve to the shaft in more places than just on the ends.




And here are my WRX axle shafts and outer CVs prepped and waiting on the hybrid races for the inner r180 CVs.

About it, im assuming it was just ordered so you haven't used them. I have never seen anyone buy these and am just interested how it turns out when you do get them in. Or if you have seen other people use them.

MY biggest hate about my car is i have to shift like 40 fing times to go from 40-120.

I don't know anyone who has used them, but they seem to be the same as Spec B gears, and everyone suggests the Spec B long ratios.

I did not want to go with a 6 speed in this car because of the 1, 2, 33, 44, 55555555, 6666666666666 gearing, but this set should match the gears a lot better and make it more usable from gear to gear.

Thanks.

Hopefully I'll be able to post back with some results/thoughts in the next couple weeks.

My gears were delivered on Saturday and I dropped them and my transmission off to my guy yesterday. I'm hoping he will have it done this week.

My hybrid Suberdave races also showed up a couple days ago, I just haven't had a chance to get the axles put together. I'm hopefully going to accomplish this today.

This is what they are. r180 on the outside to fit the CV and r160 on the inside to fit the WRX axle shaft.

Just got done with getting the axles together. All that is left is to crimp the boot straps. It was a bit of a chore without a press, but I managed to get it done.

The hybrids are in the front, stock WRX are behind.
