Default DR20Tís MY00 Australian GC8 WRX Build - POZ35D

Hi All,

Been around here for a while - previously had the version 10 GRB spec c ej207 in an MY04 Australian delivered Liberty (Legacy) GT.

Sold that a couple of years back and moved away from Subarus for a while. Had an Audi s3 with stage 2 mods etc but found that really mundane and boring to be honest. Was lucky enough to get a new work car so found this little beauty as a weekend car.

Decided to start a build thread for my new project - itís an Australian delivered MY00 WRX. Have owned it for about 7 months.

This is how I bought her:

What it came with:

OEM EJ205 with BOV and 3Ē TBE

Unknown coilovers with BC springs 10kg Front 8kg rear (I think theyíre the maxspeeding rods nasty ones)

Replica recaro seats

Rays engineering Sti RS Zero (S201) 17x7.5 forged monoblock wheels with RE003 tyres all round

Rebuilt 5 speed box with short shifter and hd exedy clutch

Dba T2ís all round and I think bendix pads

Carbon fibre sti front strut brace and white line rear strut bar

JDM sti tailights

JDM Sti cluster

Sound system (alpine amp and 12Ē sub with four kicker speakers and pioneer headunit with Bluetooth)

Various autometer gauges

Well it didnít take long for the bug to bite again and in the first three weeks of ownership I purchased the following for her:

JDM V8 EJ207 Sti complete engine
Aus spec ej207 ecu and transponder etc
2002 full wiring harness for wiring merge job
PPG loaded 5 speed (straight cut 1/2 and helical 3/4 - synchro not dog engagement)
VF48 (will throw twin scroll housing on this to use with my twin scroll jdm headers) - ended up running the vf37 noting theyíre internally exactly the same with a differnt housing obviously for twin scroll
Arp 2000 head studs
Mishimoto silicon kit
Custom CAI with AEM dryflow filter in inner guard
GFB Respons adjustable BOV
AP Suretrac r160 LSD diff (need to change pinion and crown to suit 3.54 ratio)
Id1300x injectors
Walbro 460
Raceworks Surge tank setup and AN fittings
Radium fuel rail kit and torque solutions fittings and lines
Process West splitter for gc8 (to suit wider tmic)
Twin scroll bell mouth dump pipe starter (will weld to my existing 3Ē dumpĒ
Various new gaskets etc to suit above
Killer B sump baffle
Pierburg 3 port bcs
DBA T3 front rotors
Winmax w5 front pads
Dot 5.1 fluid
Kap industries fire extinguisher mount
Genuine JDM V5 Type R alloy control arms
JDM GC8 Sti quick steering rack
New MCA Reds valved / sprung for my setup

And most importantly - new ledís for the interior...

Also bought a set of 22b pedals which are in pretty good condition (have the wider bottom accelerator pedal for heel / toe)

Plan is to use this as a weekend car with 4-6 track days a year

Have installed all of the above and loaded the latest Carberry 16 bit rom on there (4.2) - have been tuning the rom and have recently rescaled the maf accurately - itís now making 342g/second and 3.91 g/rev load - which is pretty cool for a vf37 e85 setup.

I have also purchased a genuine Garrett GTX2867 Gen 2 which I will be putting a kinugawa twin scroll housing on to suit the stock jdm twin scroll headers (stock location) - waiting on the housing to become available again so this is on hold until then.

Any thoughts and advice welcome
