Ok....
Time for few updates...


So.. chop.. chop and now the hood clears.



Next up was booster delete assembly.

Here we are waiting for 97WRXwagon to show up...
Before we start chopping them AP Racing master cylinders...




Measure, cut, trim, repeat....



Last thing we want is a cut thats too short...



Finally assembled.





Installed... and more clearance issues..
Brake reservoir doesnt clear the front strut bar...
SS lines are provided but wherever I mount, it seems to be sitting below the highest point of the master cylinder.




Might put a 90 and make my own lines so I can mount it on the firewall, right above the booster delete..

Good stuff going on here.
I second the idea of using 90* for the SS lines.

Subscribed. Love home builds that are this in depth. Can't (weight) to see your final weight. Surprised you didn't do CF hood and trunk

Hi.

I thought about it.. but JDM hood isnt much heavier than its carbon counterpart.
We were mostly concerned with fitment... as already having a cf fenders could make things more complicated.

As for the trunk.. Rear might be too light already..

All this on top of "running way above the planned cost" .. doesnt help..

All of this and in a oversized one-car garage. Absolutely amazing work! I can barely manage to cut a sheet of plywood in my garage, and here you are building this masterpiece. Bravo!

Well.. the bodywork was done in a larger i'd say 2-3 car garage...
Now.. this.. yes.. its a 1 car..
Tight but still better than working outside.

Some work was done over the last few weeks.. just havent had a will to take pics..


Ok then.. after 3 years of laying around .. the front axles finally got cleaned up, an installed.



Rubber gloves that were at the ends to protect the shafts were somewhat embeded into them.



Fuel filler and cap were installed with the vent, venting inside the filler..
Lets see how that works out.. I'am thinking it will need to be vented to the outside.




Started working on fuel lines. Both are cut and run. Started mounting them as well, but run into some really crappy m3 rivnuts. (pics to come)

So.....
Lesson #1 .. dont buy **** rivnuts.
Bought some Ginese knockoffs...
First try was M3 ... threads stripped before the rivnut was compressed.
Next was M4 ... same outcome as M3...

Finally decided to go to M5.. those seem to hold now...


Lots of back-and-forth...
Spent a whole day drilling out the ****ty rivnuts (cursing a bit) and enlarging holes and hose clamps.







Mounted brake line splitter. Fuel lines are raised to clear the brake lines.



Made a front plate to accommodate the firewall connections as well as rear brake line.



A set of hose flew in straight from Germany. Were supposed to be black but the shipper messed up.



Buttoned up the manifold with the spacers.



Since the up-pipe was mounted it was time to test mount the turbo.



Seems like its going to be a tight fit for the piping.

Next up was the brake reservoirs.
Started hacking the bracket....



This process took up the whole day..



It sits a tiny bit above the master cylinders and it clears the hood.
Some 90 fittings and it should be fine.

I had a tight fit when I was setting mine up clocked like that, so I did this:

So... I've been lazy lately .. but here are few updates...

Both side windows got glued in.
Its a bit early but trying to install what I can before the move.






Rotated the turbo and compressor, position is more/less set.



Downpipe got wrapped and installed as well.



The seat was bolted in its approximate position and the handbrake got mounted.



Picked up a 2 wire coolant sensor in favor of 3 .. since i couldnt find a 3 wire connector.. Lets see how that plays out with the new ecu.



Used throttle connector was also acquired.. Old one was a bit "rusty".



All I am missing now are just cam position connectors.
...and ignition coils...
...and MAP connector...
... yeah and IAT as well




Ebay special starter was installed and the engine is now primed.



Wiper assembly has been installed and a "new" cover has been sourced.

Engine bay vin plate got riveted in.



Got an alternator off a 09/10 impreza.. What do you know.. it almost fits.



Last but not least.. found what appears to be a 45 coupler...


Looks like a 90 will have to be used on both ends.

Brake/fuel line plate got completed today..
Finally the 45 bulkhead fitting was found..





All riveted and siliconed up..



Main breaker was installed and a positive run to the PDM.



The alternator turnbuckle came in.. and the belt was here few days after that.
Might need to clean that alternator a bit..




It was time to start the wiring.. now that running brake lines seems to be a PITA.



That pretty much covers the rear of the car..
I think there are maybe 3-4 more wires that will be run.




The doors got wired up as well.



Fiddled around with the door cards.. Its manageable but I expected a better fit. Rear side panel is a different story.. it will have to be cut and trimmed because it doesnt clear the cage.



After spending about 2 days.. Finally figured out all the connectors and pins that will need to be used in the engine bay..

This is the only NASIOC thread I get excited for when I get a notification. Did the same, read the whole thread and can't wait to see the finished product. Labor of love.
