That actually would have been way easier. The 6 speed really isn't bad, but the full long block is terribly heavy and awkward to carry. We didn't have a pallet jack so we had to carry it all over to the truck and then set it on a pallet already in the truck. This made things waaay more difficult. If we had a pallet jack it wouldn't have been hard at all. Basically ended up carrying it 30+ ft two times vs. carrying it 1ft one time.

But it appears everything made it OK. The motor and tranny were strapped to a pallet for the drive across town and nothing looked like it moved around when we got there. All of my garage stuff ended up being a TON of stuff. It was a lot of work and took up a huge chunk of space in my new garage. But I'm still able to fit 3 cars in the garage, so that's a plus.

New garage. Already full of junk. Needs insulation, drywall, and a lot of storage space (shelves) to open up some more working room.



Fortunately it can still fit 3 cars

Wow, congratulations on the upgrade. You should check out garagejournal.com. Lots of really cool builds on all budgets to check out and draw inspiration from.

Congrats on the move that's a nice looking garage. I'm very jealous. My 1 car garage is completely useless since it's full of mine and my wife's junk and a giant oil tank.

Thanks! I'll have to look into that. I mainly just want more outlets, insulation, and some DIY shelving for storage. Oh, and a heater. I think it should be pretty easy, but I don't even know where to begin on the wiring, so that holds up everything else.

It's really nice to be able to park 3 cars in the garage, but the free space around the cars is actually way down from the old garage. The old garage was only a 2 car, but it was 6 feet deeper than the new one! Overall area only went 520ft^2 to 618ft^2 (so definitely not a 50% increase like you would think when going from 2 cars to 3 cars).

And the old garage had full height shelving along the entire back wall. The storage was great, and the extra deep garage made for a lot more room to work. The third stall in the new garage barely has enough room to walk around the car, especially with the workbench there. I definitely need to add some shelves eventually.

Another really nice thing is the higher ceilings. The old garage was low (8ft?) and had an even lower spot right above the car. You couldn't jack the car up very high with the hood open or it would hit the ceiling. I think this garage is 9ft? I'm not positive, but it's a lot higher than the old one. High enough that it's tempting to put in a lift

Here's a shot of the garage without all the junk. It looks way bigger than it really is.

If you are thinking about a lift (I have one in my home garage) look into an Atlas, I paid $1495 for my 2-post. Picked it up in the back of a 1500 GMC Sierra and installed in 4 hours with one other person. Makes everything much easier. 9FT should be high enough as well.

I'm guessing that's probably this one:

http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-BP8000

I'll have to actually measure my ceiling to see if it would it. It's just rafters now, so I'm sure I could make a cutout in the ceiling if I'm only off by a couple inches. What are the trade off's with the base plate design? Is it just less load capacity because nothing is stabilizing the top of the posts?

I have the open top design, still has a 5ton capacity. It's made by AMPRO in Mass. It doesn't mind the 67 Chevelle, or my friends 7 passenger Suburban. I've measured post to post a few times to see if anything has moved, after 6years there's been no variation or less than a 32nd of an inch anyway. :-)

I lied I got the 9KBP. Guess it was $1595 not $1495. The cable over the top doesn't actually add any structural integrity (that's what they told me atleast), just no hump to get over. My STi is pretty low and I have no issues getting over it. I do have to put it on 4 1.25" boards to get the lift arms under it though. I needed the base plate one because I have a cutout from an apartment above the garage that juts out about 3FT into the bay with the lift. This was the only one that could fit underneath that. You need 4" thick concrete at a minimum. Install was very straightforward and easy, although drilling 12 holes through concrete was tiring. Only part that I didn't know what to do was the wiring, my dad had no issue doing it and he's not an electrician by any means.

Here is a video of the VF39 @ 20psi on E85:


Sorry for the terrible quality. Windows Movie Maker is causing the videos to become extremely dark recently. I'm not sure what happened, but it looks pretty terrible. Same camera and same computer is being used.

Here is an updated Virtual Dyno plot:



This a pretty basic 20psi E85 tune with the VF39 and stock 2.0L. 50-100mph time and Virtual Dyno power numbers both show a small gain over the VF39 on pump gas. Not too drastic, but enough to be noticeable. Didn't quite hit 300WHP, but it still pulls well and is strong all the way to redline.

50-100mph is 8.6 seconds
287WHP on Virtual Dyno (Dynojet)

Engine:
  • Stock 2.0L with 185k Miles
Intake/Exhaust/Fuel:
  • GrimmSpeed CrossPipe
  • GrimmSpeed Uppipe
  • GrimmSpeed Downpipe
  • Perrin CatBack Exhaust
  • IHI VF39 (STI) Turbo
  • GrimmSpeed Gaskets

Ben,

I have the Bendpak XPR-10, I'm very happy with it! I did have to cut out the insulation due to the height, my barn is around 11ft. I need to box it in this fall.

I don't have that much height and I definitely don't need that much lift. A Subaru is the biggest car I plan to ever have on it, so I don't need anything too heavy duty.

Agreed, I don't have anything near the max load of the lift but I liked having the cross bar at the top. Regardless, they're awesome if you have the space and your concrete is thick enough. Good luck!

It's a ways off if I ever do it. I would want to wire, insulate, heat the garage before doing a lift. I don't know the thickness of the concrete, but I wouldn't be surprised if I needed to have new sections poured to mount the lift.

Haven't checked in on this in a while. Very nice progress. You wasted no time putting some better power down. Love the build and the direction it's heading!

Curious, did you ever look into the GC chassis? You liked how light the bugeye was, GC coupe is even lighter

Yeah, I got to drive a GC at the track and my helmet hit the headliner. I'm not a tall guy either. I just thought it would be too small. Maybe it was just the seat position or something. I'm hoping to drop the weight on the Bugeye a bit. Still won't be as light as a comparably set up GC, but it should be a lot lighter than my 2011 was.

I had a little help from my brother and a friend and pulled the motor out on Friday. All went pretty smoothly/easily. It was pretty late so we called it quits after the motor was out. Still need to pull the tranny. Waiting on a few small parts to be able to put the new stuff in anyways. Sorry for the terrible cell phone pictures.
