Subaru Stars STI_KLR's Built 2.5L Hybrid

How she sits right now:

Ok, here's a quick run down to catch people up:

February 7th: Cracked a ringland in the EJ20 in cyl #4
Feb-May: Slowly build up the 2.5L Hybrid (myself) with a brand new EJ257
End of May: Motor cranks up first try; 1,xxx mile break-in begins
June: Blow 2nd gear in the 5-speed
July: Replace 5-speed with JDM 6-speed
September: Break the bell-housing on the 6-speed
November: 2 cracked pistons lead to rapid oil consumption to spin rod bearings in cyl #2

# of times WRX has been towed since February: 8 and counting.


The WRX is currently at IAG Performance in Westminster, MD where all of the work is being done. The rod and crank were completely toast, so here is the work that has already been done. The BOLD parts are brand new, the rest are parts I already had.
