Default Engine Build

Okay so here goes the build log on my baja rebuild.

First thing why go overboard with it? I like my baja and there's nothing better on the market, 9k is less than a new car.

For anyone else thinking of doing this, two things. One tell your wife, significant other, Mexican concubine that you're going to be tied up for about a week. Two allocate about 15% more than you think it should.

Parts list
CCR reman'ed engine with tri-coated pistons, and anti friction coating on bearings.

Exhaust, borla header and strommg high flow cat, both ceramic coated.

Intake manifold, ceramic coated, phenholic spacers, high performance silicon hoses, all new wiring, piping, sensors, and all stainless steel screws.

Suspension: New Oem full built struts and shocks with 1" stuble lift kit, whiteline sway bars, whiteline front/rear links, whiteline rear transmission mount, and whiteline rack n' pinion mounts. Also new oem rack.

Adding plx sensors for oil temp, press, and rear diff temp. These will connect to the car computer, but i'll save that for a
later post.

All the parts:

The guys at racemetalsmiths did a great job powder coating the fuel lines. Note the new ones from subaru are no longer anodized they were straight steel. WTF!
