Default CursezZz 2006 STi 'Mr. Dancefloor'

I suppose i should make a build thread for my current vehicle, a MY06 STi. After selling my WRX in August of 2017 (HUGE MISTAKE), i bought quite a few vehicles before landing myself where i belong (and never should have left), in a turbo Subaru! I bought a S550 Mustang GT, sold that after about a month and a half, great car just terribly boring to drive and much slower than my previous car . Then i moved on to a 1988 RX-7 Turbo ii, that car was awesome except for the rotary, it kept flooding (due to a possibly failing ecu) After about a month of owning the Dorito, i traded to a friend for a 1990 Subaru Sambar and some cash. Driving the Sambar was the best 48hrs of my life. Sold it almost immediately and ended up in a 2008 Base C6 Corvette. LS3 and TR6060 was an amazing time! But it just didnt make me tingle in my downstairs like my old WRX did soooooooo after 2 months, you guessed it! I SOLD IT Then the search was on for a STi! After looking at a ton of over priced, modified, hacked up pieces of junk i decided the smartest thing to do was buy a close friends car that was for sale. (Don't worry he regrets his decision almost daily) I figured i knew the car was dealer maintained by the previous owner with a long 150k mile service history, some of it even done by a friend who is a senior master tech. Most mods were on the car when i purchased it from my friend and the best part was.... I knew it was all done right....because i assisted in installing every mod on the thing. and i didnt mind the mileage at all, the car was very clean and i planned on being an idiot and doing a full big turbo go fast build.

Engine Assembled and installed by Subaru genius and my soulmate. User carnz-pj-410 check out his build (one of many) carnz Impreza LSTi thread

The car is tuned by and will always be tuned by...... John Kerr at Innovative Motorworks.
Current Power level is: 513WHP&446ft/lbs on E60 on the IMW Mustang Dyno

and how it currently looks until the built setup goes in and i go rotated and such! it is not pretty but it works!


About time for longblock assembly!


A wild (mostly) assembled long block appears!!


Kelford are a bunch of liars! they state that the R199-B cams do not require clearancing, well suprise!

Nice looking build you've got going. Any thoughts/remarks on the DSS carbon shaft? I've been considering it but I wanted to make sure there were no fitment issues before I drop the coin on that thing.

when it came time to set the valve lash the assembler was getting some odd readings, possibly because the GSC valves are a hair longer than OEM not really sure. so more buckets had to be ordered ughhhhh



and here it is fully assembled and ready to go in.....when my clutch arrives



The ACT 6 puck and my Motul break in



The gorgeous Titanium teardrop knob crafted and burned by Chris at WC Lathewerks, im currently waiting on production of my Ti boot retainer and reverse lock out.



Stock block out and whack little turbo exposed



Some junk swapped over



Crappy pic of my Walbro 450 with my pup in the background



Motul Gear oil cocktail ill be running with the new gears!



ALL TOGETHER NOW ready for re-install after the gear change

so pretty and shiny. putting the ugly used stuff back on did make me sad lol i was originally only gonna do the 07+ 3/4 gear but was peer pressured into the longer 5/6 because why not lol only marginally more expensive.

Welcome back to the subie world.

I kinda want to buy your old block just for the heads, because I plan on doing a closed deck in my RSTi at some point and could use them to build a motor on the side.
