Short block:

08' sti case halves 703 casting
"240" 2.0L crank
MPS +2 rods
Manley 99.75 pistons
King or ACL bearings (whichever gives the desired clearances)
8.4:1 compression ratio

All the rotating parts were balanced together from the crank pulley to the flywheel/pressure plate. Hoping for a really tight and quiet motor, minimal piston slap from tight clearances, plus the added bonus of less side loading from the geometry of the 2.3


08' wrx D25. Adding the wiring to my harness to run the AVCS too!

I'm still undecided what I want to do.....either go all out with porting and +1mm valves, or just leave stock ports and valves with my GSC S1's with upgraded valve springs and keep it simple.

I'm also undecided if I will stay with the BW s256, or use a GTX3071 or maybe a GTX2867.

I'm not really going for all out power and 9k rpms. I just want a silky smooth, refined motor/exhaust note, a fat power band from 4k to 8k with around 400whp. That is also why I'm switching to an EL header and trying to make a nice quiet exhaust.

I'll update with pictures from the build soon. Hoping to have this broke in and tuned by early summer!
Keep it simple
