Default Arktikpenguin's Big Turbo Bugeye Build

Hello! I am Tom, and I have been a member of the Subaru community for 3 years now! This site has always been my home, providing plenty of info to help me when I was a noobie, and still helping me even today. I normally lurk, and don't post much other than some sale threads and my recent PPB thread. Recently I happened upon a CCA position with the USPS, and I can finally provide enough content to start a build thread, whereas before I only got new parts every month or so, which seemed boring to me.

Anyhow, I'll be including my current build, all future plans, and everything in between as I build my dream car into my own image.

Some info on my car:

I purchased my PSM '02 WRX on May 22nd, 2015, with an Autometer Boost Gauge, Injen SRI, Spec-D Catback, Gimmick Turbo Inlet, and some beat up spray painted Primax 618 wheels. Everything else was stock! She had 211k miles, original trans with 211k miles, and a newer EJ205 with around 65k miles. It had ugly red and black pinstriping which was immediately buffed off, and the car received a full buff and polish!

First Day Picture!






Since then I have slowly been adding on to it. My current full parts list is as follows:

So currently sitting, I'm running a fairly safe tune @22.5psi on 93 octane making roughly 370whp/330wtq. I will be trying out e85 and bumping up to 24psi once I get my id1300x injectors and hopefully I'll make 420-440whp. I'll be swapping over to a rotated setup w/ the Borg Warner S369SX-E over the summer, grabbing the full sti swap, and then building the engine/heads over the winter while having it painted.

My "goal" is 600whp, which won't be difficult at all with the planned setup but I'm sure I'll encounter some headaches during the build. I am getting a killer deal on my turbo and piping setup, plus I love huge turbos. Lag is a nonfactor to me. I have an FP Green on my 2L and I get around town and pass people just fine now, with a 2.5 I'll have a good bottom end bump and that will be more than enough. I will be doing some track days, and some drag racing. I don't expect much in the way of 1/4 mile times with the short ratio of a JDM 6 speed but I'm not chasing times, I just want to have fun!

Things should get interesting very soon, stay tuned for next week!

Id1300x injectors are on their way, and I will be throwing some e85 in with my fp green to see how it does! Wish my 5 speed luck!

Got my id1300x in! Didnt even know you could pull the silver cap off to reveal which model of x injector it is, so now I know! Once I get some time off work I can get these suckers in and retune it, then make the switch to corn!

Thank you! I plan on getting my v7 sti drivetrain transplant next, but I may grab the clutch and super shifter set first. Might also grab a DSS aluminum 1 piece driveshaft to go along with the setup. We shall see!

Just throwing this out there you may already know but figure it doesn't hurt just in case, the clutch, shifter and driveshaft from the 5 speed and 6 speed aren't interchangeable, so if you get ones for the 5mt you will have to swap to 6mt stuff when you do the v7 swap.

The 5mt clutch will work in the 6mt if you have a 5mt flywheel and possibly some other variables, but I have made the 5mt clutch work before with an 07 6mt. Anyway I am rambling on but wanted to throw that out there in case you were gonna get 5mt parts.

Yep, I know they arent interchangeable. I was just gonna have the shifter set driveshaft and clutch waiting for when i do the 6 speed.

I figured you knew. Now I see you said "to go along with the setup" I must have been reading through a little fast lol.

The v7 6mt with those taller tires should kick some serious ass too.

Hell yeah, and with a slightly higher rev limit I should atleast hit 60 in 2nd. On my 5mt I see 72 on the dash, so around 69-70 real world lol

2nd at 8000rpm is 67 mph with 26" tires and jdm 6mt gearing. 64mph @ 8000rpm with 25" tires. 60mph @ 7500rpm with 25" tires. You can figure out different setups with this gearing calculator.

Got my new o ring set and tossed the id1300s in today. Threw the base tune on and she fired right up. These run much smoother than my five o injectors, probably due to having actual data for tuning and not doing a guesstimate.

All in all, i should have gone id1300s right away. ID are very good and the install was about 20x easier than my five o injectors.

Never updated this, but I ended up bending a rod while out testing spark cut launch control. My plans have changed a bit and I'll update the parts I'll be going with when I have some time. For now, she's at my brother's body shop being torn apart for a full repaint. Fixing all the dents, removing rust properly, and rolling the front and rears properly as well. New paint code will be 86f, which is Blue Steel Mica off of the 1999-2000 gc8.

After she's painted she'll be going into storage until next Spring. I'll be amassing parts and the built engine, and we will go from there.
