The 08 is at a disadvantage to the later cars with bigger fenders. The later cars have better turbos too.

I havenít attended an event in quite some time but the last time I did I was in SM. I have done a few things to my car and assumed I would be in SM but now Iím not so sure. Didnít have time to read all 77 pages so I apologize if this has been answered already.

Here is what I have purchased or already done to my 02 WRX since running an event classified as SM.

V8 ej207 (to be e tuned with Grimmspeed 3port EBC)

4.444 5mt

Whiteline roll center kit (shipped)

H6 rear rotors and caliper bracket (shipped)


Immediate plans depending on answers I get here.

ALK

Front control arm bushings

Whiteline adjustable rear control arms

Whiteline trailing arm bushings

Whiteline rear toe lock

TIC Unabomberís sexy rearend

Whiteline trans crossmember bushings

Beatrush Propeller Shaft Mount Bushings

Kartboy pitch stop

I bought the bugeye new and decided to drop a s***load into it rather than having a car payment. Are any of these things not SM legal like the roll center kit, ALK or ej207? Iím not thin skinned so Iím willing to take criticism on my parts selection. I donít claim to be an expert so tell me if anything on the list is a waste of money.

Thanks

Did a little more searching and found that subydude is running a 207 and an alk is not legal so I guess Ill just go with poly bushings rather than the alk. Still open to suggestions though. The post I was reading was 10 years old so if something has changed let me know.

If I could just sneak the alk passed the tech inspector I would dominate SM. LOL!!!

Your right on both points, the engine is pretty much unlimited. And the ALK is illegal, but you'd probably get away with running at local events.
Everything else looks good.

Just an FYI, I've switched to an EJ257 but am still using the EJ207 heads. You can get most of the benefits of the ALK by using offset bushings.

Thanks guys. Looks like I’ll go with the offset bushing. I’m guessing I’ll get the same caster as the ALK without the change in anti-lift. I’ve been reading through this thread and have a better understanding of the rules now. Can’t wait for the first event of the year. I got a safe tune on the 207 right after the last event of last season. Curious to see how it does. Hoping to not end up last in SM.

You'll get close to the same caster.

The EJ207 is a great engine and while it doesn't make the torque the 2.5 does you can still be pretty competitive with it. Just don't go big on the turbo if you swap. Autox is all about 3,500-6,500 RPM power. Also get a better oil pan on it. I lost the bottom end on mine because of oil starve at a track day that would have been solved with a better oil pan.

Ive never been a fan of large turbos since Iíve always had a 2.0 I actually asked the guy that did my swap about running a different pan and he said I didnít need one. I think you had a v7 and I have a v8 so not sure if they have different oil pans. I donít think they do so I may have to look into that since my local track has a banked oval at one end.

A 257 with 207 heads sounds like a great combo.

Thanks for the advice

It's easy to check. If you have the square pan you should change it to the STI v-shaped pan (and put on a Killer B pickup while you're there.)

Pretty sure it’s more v shaped but not at home to check. Saw a post by subydude in another thread that said the v8 has a better baffle than the v7. Getting ready to do the brakes on Thursday so I’ll take a look when I get it on jack stands.

Thanks

The later pan is better for sure and is fine for the odd track day or autox. I had the square pan on my V7. I like the killer b pans for the extra capacity though and if you get to big r comps it's worth it to have the extra oil. The pick up is more important IMO, but both together are best when staying with a wet sump.

Im all about spending a little to save a lot. I found a killer B kit with pan and pick up for $688. Ill make sure to do that before my next track day and throw some new motor mounts in while I’m at it if the swap didn’t include group N mounts. A dry sump would be nice but I never do more than 1 track day a year and my local track isn’t too crazy. I usually take it relatively easy through the banked oval portion. I don’t mind risking going off in the infield but don’t want to end up in the wall.

Don’t think Im going to attempt pressing the offset bushings into the control arm. Gonna leave that to someone with a press.

Harbor freight presses are cheap and work well. I just pressed some control arm bushings a week ago with my HF 12 ton

Don’t worry about the dry sump.

The Killer B pan is absolutely worth the insurance. I have personally starved at an autox with an overfilled STi pan with the Killer B pickup and baffle. Several others in our region have also starved with the STi pan. I wish I could go to a dry sump..

I've seriously considered a dry sump, but there's not a lot out there that's not already more than a new engine. It's definitely better than the wet sump pan though, and if I were going on track with the car hard core I'd likely do it.

The killer b with a IAG AOS that drains back seems to keep things in check though for me.

It's pretty. I don't think I'd switch, but I think it'll push BW to do more updates since Garrett basically mimic'd them.

I was running a very old HTA68 with a 10cm hotside and EWG, should make a good upgrade! Original winter plan was to buy a BW, but since they just released it, let's try them out. Probably still 2-3 month before it's in the car, I'm late on my rebuild this winter, but I'll post result once it's done.

Thoughts on the Moroso pan and pickup? Is Killer B the only choice?

Does the Moroso fit with your Killer B header? if not, than there is your answer.

I can't seem to find an answer to that. Do you know?
