Got mine done.. pretty easy.

I use a spacer for the TB that I bought off the guy on this thread and it made fitment harder... so not sure why i needed that.

used Grimmspeed 8mm's and just removed the AC because race car... and put the cath can in its place.

Also a new Perrin Big Tube equal length header, custom up pipe, PTE6262.. just a basic 450whp setup for now.

Without that spacer under the TB it won't seal if you turn it 90 degrees. If you aren't rotating it you might not need it.

what?

its a stock, 2010 wrx, used longblock that I picked up. we will probably make 450whp on low boost and ill drive it for a few months till it blows up.

by then, my Built (rods/pistons/cam/port/stock sleeves) setup should be complete and ready to drop in. and ill run that till it blows up, by then, Ill have my sleeved setup ready to roll and ill need a bigger turbo and more fuel. going for somewhere upwards of 800 (if i keep interest in this project for that long.

i bolted the TB in place as it sits, its sealed. Then i put the Alt on, and everything is tight, but fits.

no, but nothing is touching that shouldn't be, so theres no reason it should be sealed. But, Ill look at it again before it goes in.

maybe if i payed retail


but what else am i gonna do with this money? Im not gonna just give it away for free


The car itself has been sitting with no motor for over a year, I traded for a BMW that i bought for 1200 and had about 7g's invested in it. The car is an 04 sti.

It came with a FPHTA37R that was almost new, and a fully built motor with a broken piston. I sold the turbo for 1500 bucks, sold the wheels on the car for 1800 bucks, and sold the defi gauges (because everyone has them) for 600, right after i got the car. So right off the back, I own this STI for $3100 bucks.....

Then i started building the current bottom end (im about 1200 deep all said and done with a serious hook up from a local builder and killer cost on parts)..

I bought this turbo for 500, and bought the WRX long block in mint condition for $1000 bucks.

So to date, Im $5800 deep on this 2004 STI with 70k miles on it.

SO... its not like I bought a $30k sti and started blowing **** up like most everyone else does.

this motor is just to get the car back on the road.

current motor build is re using some old parts (that have all been checked) and is taking longer then expected (since i a friend hooking it up on the side) which i why i bought the wrx long block

800whp build will come in the next few years, but ill start building it next year probably and I will take my time on it. By the time its done, I might be putting it in a totally different shell, who knows.

I can think of a hand full of people who have built motors, and blown them up within a year. Subarus are not reliable under Big Power, i dont care how much money you (the average person) has to throw at the build.

So, Im really doing it the best way, I have a motor in the car running, and a motor under way at all times.

its not like i have 3 $10k builds within 3 years. ( i know someone who fits that description)

Wow ^^^ That's hot!

Do you mind showing what you had to trim and or shave to make that work? Looks like a solid fit with the Crawford Intake Mani vs the stocker... I have always stayed away from the reverse mani because of the a/c loss, but it looks like you figured it out!

I would love to do this to my setup when I rebuild over the Winter and go rotated turbo. I am always looking for a way to get rid of FMIC lag for better track times and overall driveability.

people have been running AC since the begining of this thread. when you rotate the turbo, the rotated manifold does look pretty decent.

If the black plastic housing on your throttle body doesn't rest against your unmodified intake manifold without the spacer (rotated, like you have it), I'll buy it back from you at WBM.
