Default Port polish and pistons

So the summer that passed, I did my VF34 with all the goods, the tranny, tuning blah blah blah. What a blast! I'm now near 34k (yup she's young for an 02)... however I'm sick and always looking for performance.

In 2 years of maybe a bit longer like 75k I'm doing a v7 swap, another trans, a GT35R turbo

however I was thinking this summer of porting and polishing the heads, dropping some pistons in, port polish the turbo (maybe coat it), and port and polish my exhaust. Than re-tune the car. What do you guys think, or am I a nutcase? LOL, i've got a problem... just love my car 2 much and gotta do more and more

or if you guys go other ideas esp cuz i'm going back to japan this summer :+)

thanks

It sounds like you are on the right track there is a decent gain from headwork and cams.
Dont be afraid to go into detail.
I do all my own work, and will be proud once I get the dyno sheet one night this week
This last month I just got done putting my car back together..
EJ205
-port/polished heads -- welded in anti-reversion cones in the exhaust ports
-oversized valves
-port matched ported tgv's, port matched intake and exh header
-cams
-all valvespring pressures matched
-Polished chambers- matched volume
-ignition solutions ignition coils
-didnt port just cleaned up the casting on the turbo and did a rebuild (18G)
-Arias forges pistons
-Pauter Forged Rods
-Coated rod and main bearings
-STI oil pump- modified
-STI water pump
-accusump directly into the engines main oil journals

Sounds like a really good plan to me. You cant beat the smoothness of gasket matching everything and smoothing out castings. NOW THATS SMOOOTH!!

but i was bringing this topic up because in 2 yrs or maybe a bit longer like 75k i'm just pulling it out and the RA tranny to do a swap and push REAL power lol

i was wondering if i was wasting my time... but i mean im sick like i gotta keep doing stuff

oh and maybe an oil cooler

bump for me any other opinions. Im just looking at Pistons, rods, port polish heads, turbo (or dead bolt) and exhaust, oil cooler, retune... up the boost from 18-19PSI to 19-20PSI. Just a lil extra go and life until i take everything out again lol

Seth- Here's my take.

-Don't waste your money building your ej205 block. For the boost you'd want to run on the GT35 it wouldn't hold anyway...and i don't think you'll have a longevity problem with your current setup. Even if it does blow you'll have saved the money for building it and be able to get another stock ej20 block for much cheaper to tide you over until the swap.
-Headwork is a good idea...but again why waste the money if you are just going to swap later on. You may as well just buy JDM STi heads now since they are rather inexpensive and to get your wrx heads to flow that much you'd spend the same or more in work. Plus you can reuse your JDM heads on the new motor (or even paired with an ej257 down the line)
-Turbo work...again i'd almost hold off. If you want a tad more power, don't bother working your vf34 but sell it and get a vf22 or a 16G. (i'd go 16g)

Just my take on it...not to say there is no benefit in what you want to do, i just think there are better ways to spend your money, especially if you plan on changing setups down the line. Good luck man and let me know if i can help you with anything.

ya well thats kinda what i was also thinking... I dont want to go with a 16g or a 22. I like the 34. If i'm going to swap a turbo again its the GT35R. I'm just crazy and always looking for more stuff to do

because im running out of things to do and the plan for the swap is in 2 yrs and thats far away LOL

thanks Louis...

but i still think i should do an oil cooler

If you want some extra gains you could do alky/water injection. That's relatively inexpensive and should make for nice improvements.

If you want to do an oil cooler, PM me and we can go over some options.

Why? Are you seeing high oil temps? Do you track your car (road coarse)? If not, the 300 could be better spend somewhere else. And as others said, just get the v7/v8 heads and that way you can use them once you do your swap.

The heads you will get will be slightly used anyway, so why not just run them? I understand that you want to build a fresh motor, but then just have the heads tightened up when you do your swap. Should be more than fine...

Seth- The one caveat i have for you is if you do decide to do JDM heads you'll want the ecu also to benefit from the AVCS, but with the Cobb AP i believe they are not allowed to use them on a JDM ecu. It seems that some have though and it may be dependant on the shop. In that case it may not be worth it to get them if you have to switch to ecutek/utec.

Of course down the line you may switch EM's anyway, and you can of course run the heads without AVCS but it's just something to consider.
