After installing the CP pistons we torqued down the ARP head studs.

After installing the oil pan we tapped into the top of it for the oil return.

For the clutch we decided to go with the ACT street light fly wheel and the ACT 6 puck sprung clutch

After dropping the engine back into the car this is how it looked...basically it was a mess

After realizing the 2.5i has a much larger intake manifold and a different throttle body we had to clock the turbo in order for it to fit. The APS SR56 and the APS hard inlet pipe.

There were so many problems we ran into a long the way but theres always a way to get around them. The fuel system in the stock 2.5i N/A cars is internally regulated. The most amount of boost we could push through the car was around 8 until it hit fuel cut. The best way around this problem was to switch my fuel plate out with a WRX fuel plate that had the fuel return option. I went down to the local race shop and picked up an aeromotive fuel pressure regulator with all stainless steel lines. The gold fuel plate on the left is the WRX one that has the fuel return. The silver fuel plate is my stock one that we had to get rid of.
