This is the very first day I brought the car home from the dealership. Brand new 2007 2.5i outback sport.

After a couple years of owning the car I didnt do too much. I baked the head lights, put a lip on it, rear WRX wing and a $10 set of dyno ridges for the back

A good friend of mine and I were talking about doing a full build on my car but we werent sure exactly how we could do it. After talking to a couple of local tuners and thinking it out we started.

After installing the rods and crank it was time for the CP pistons. With this engine we did a 100mm over bore so the block came out to basically be a 2.6L
