heres my work in progress


using an sti ver8 intake manifold, bolted up perfect. Switching the fuel lines was a little harder than a tgv manifold, becuase since its all 1 piece, i couldnt just lift up on the manifold, i had to bring the fuel lines out with the manifold (because theres metal between the manifold runners, its kinda trapped in the middle).

Had to undo the fuel lines from the side, then pull it out and reverse it back to the normal position and slide it back in from the side.

And since my sti engine came with no a/c, i had no a/c brackets to mount the alterantor in the new spot. Luckily i found someone parting out a wrx and got them.

Dave, you're gonna need to move that coolant reservoir, or the intake won't fit.

No, it's the standard bracket that holds the AC compressor. But it's been cut up to turn the bracket into the belt tensioner. The yellow lines on the picture show you how I cut mine (kinda).

ya seriously, i need that black piece so bad. I got the one that mounts it on the left, but not the one on the right.

I said this in a PM to you, but I wanted to post it for public knowledge also.

I am using a timing belt idler pulley for my setup. Make sure to get the dual ball bearing one. So far, I have about 1000 miles on my setup and no problems yet.

I posted this on LegacyGT.com, but I wanted some opinions here too.

What if you aren't going to push more than 300-320whp, how about the Injen FMIC on a reversed LGT intake manifold? If you rotate the cold pipe coming up from the core, it looks as if it would flow right into the throttle body.

Of course, you'd still have to go rotated seeing as there is no room for the intake. And no rotated kit is meant for only 300-320whp, sooo.... Nothing to see here kids, move along.

im pretty happy with my piping, its nice and short, and very affordable too. As i bought an ebay fmic core for 250, a bunch of pipes for 150, and all in all spent <= 800 bucks for it including labor.

i didnt wanan pay 65 bucks for that black bracket thats supposed to go on right side of alternator, so i made my own. And i guarentee its about 10x stronger too, i used really thick metal.

a progress pic:




semi-done:






i still need to find a better way to mount the coolant reservoir. I moved it forward some so i could fit a 4 inch inlet filter on the turbo(which has yet to come).

IMprezaRSfan, Thats how I have my pully set up, and it squeeks like all hell, kills my ears. I think it is because of a lack on contact on the crank so it slips when its cold, at throttle blips, and when making sharp slow turns. Let me know how it works out for you, but I can tell you its not working great for me. I don't have another solution right now however.

mine squeeked too, cuz it was too loose. When i would tighten it more, the old bracket i had would slip down some and i woudlnt raelly be tightening the belt.

So i made a new bracket and its super strong. The belt is TIGHT, its not going anywhere, have had 0 squeeks since then.

so now i dont have to mess with finding a pulley.

Just thought I'd share a few pics of my reversed manifold setup. I did this about six months ago and am still working on this and that. I cut and re-welded a Greddy FMIC kit for the IC pipes. I'm using a Precision Turbo GT3255E turbo. It seems to be pretty good for the price. I'm using a 2.2T block with Wiseco pistons. I made all of the exhaust from scratch, up-pipe, down-pipe, everything. I still have work to do but I like what I've done so far.

Don't you love this Subaru paint?! That bumper is clean and has already been repainted once.
