Default PDXREALTOR's 17 STI -S&S Subaru Performance - Perrin EFR 7670 Rotated Kit

My car is pretty built up already. It's gone through a couple transformations in terms of different body and engine schemes. We won't get into all the history here, just the present. Feel free to ask about anything prior.

It currently has forged drop in pistons and ARP 2000 studs that just couldn't hang with 35 psi.... I was starting to blow white smoke out of the tail pipes after WOT 2nd gear rips so it was time to do the swap.

I was very close to going with an IAG short block, but, Steve at S&S Performance has a great rep too, is closer to me, and overall I really enjoyed my conversations with him. He built me a closed deck block with heads that have just minor upgrades.

Engine specs-
1mm oversized valves with bowl blend.
BC Stage 3 cams
1/2" studs
Closed deck
Pauter rods
JE pistons / light weight pins
New nitride crank
OEM head gaskets

Car as it is today -



Engine bay as it was a few days ago -



Engine Pics









More to follow shortly

Thanks guys! I don't know what it is with Google photos sometimes not working. I tested with Firefox, Chrome, and both worked. IE was a no go - so I'll try to test them there.

More porn -












At a standstill until my valve covers and other misc. parts come back from anodizing. Basically the valve covers are what's holding me up from dropping it back in the car.

I'm thinking about clipping all the emissions plugs to clean up the wiring harness. I know I'll likely kick myself at some point down the road, but I'm having a hard time talking myself out of it. What do you think?

I just pulled my unused air pump plug and blow by sensor plug, integrated my fuel pressure and flex fuel sensor wiring into the oem harness and started relooming the entire thing with raychem atum 4:1 heatshrink and f series flex sleeve. Do it.

What size spacers did you end up with for your rotated intake?

Nice - i'll check out that heat shrink and flex sleeve. Totally going to do it. Can't stand all that wiring messing things up in the bay.


I answered your question about spacers in the other thread.

Got the valve covers and alternator case back today, along with my upper coolant tank. I had them anodized. Anodizing is a neat process that I never really played with until now.

After talking with the anodizer about anodizing cast aluminum I was a bit worried and anticipated having to give the valve covers and alternator case a coat of paint but, I'm happy with them. I had to pay the minimum charge of 50 bucks to get the coolant tank done so it was a no lose situation.

I can move forward now that I have the valve covers back. I'll put them on tomorrow, get initial leak down test numbers, and hopefully get the up pipe and turbo on so I can rework that wiring harness. Then I'll just need to paint the intercooer tubes and intake manifold. Urethane shows up on Tuesday. WOOT!




If any images are missing please say so. Google is doing weird things. I think these photos all have to be in a shared folder, or else they disappear. *shrug*

The pics in post 1 work now but the first pic in your last post is broken.

VC and alt came out great, makes me want to do something similar.

Thanks - I posted two of the same picture for a test. Here's the method that works on the three main browsers, and NASIOC app. This is for Google photos.

Create and put all photos to be displayed in a shared Google folder. Without opening the picture in the shared folder, right click and select open in new tab or window. Go to new tab or window, right click, copy image address, paste that address within the image tags on your forum of choice.

Thanks. If anyone decides to anodize the cast parts make sure and have the anodizer bead blast them first. I would go a step further and run some 220 grit over the large flat surface with casting flash as the bead blast did not remove it.

They're hidden valve covers though so.... no biggie imo.

Re-did the wiring harness. What a mess that thing is. Looks a lot better now. I relocated the manifold ground so I could route left side harness around the turbo inlet with the fuel lines. Should look a bit cleaner that way.





I have a little bit of shaving to do on the right side head so the turbo clears in its current clocked position, install the flywheel/clutch, and then it should be ready to drop in.

I'd love to see some more detailed pics of your anodized bits.

Currently trying to decide between anodizing and powder coating my stuff when the time comes.

Here's some pics of it against my wheels in different light - it certainly has too much green. I have some tint coming my way, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get the bronze look I'm after. May have to re-order from a supplier I don't usually use.

Here's some close up of the anodized alternator and coolant tank. The coolant tank is aluminum, the alternator is cast aluminum.

Got the oil cooler installed. Had to be one of the worst installs for me with a Perrin Product. Maybe I'm just rusty wrenching on ***** that isn't on an engine stand.

I'm a little concerned about the distance (or lack of) of the lines to the header even though they are Aeroquip hoses and wrapped with Pyroshield.
