harbor freight or the dremel tool company has a bunch of tiny wire brushes. go kind of slow take your time and buy like atleast 5 of them as they go kind of quick. the dremel ones work far better but are double the price so its up to you what you choose. then use a multi speed dremel. this took me hours to get the block and heads done just so you know. it was not easy.

hope that helps

Thanks. I was hoping you had found some clever trick to make it quicker and less time-intensive. There is a HF within 15 or 20min, I'll head over there tomorrow to see about finding some cheap tools.

theres a really easy way but it should be done when the case halves are totally apart and thats tape up the case halves so they are sealed up with duct tape and media blast them.

i did mine after my motor was back together. it was an after thought to paint it. it took hours to do because i made sure it was damn near perfect. i got it done in one night after work for the most part. stuck the ipod in the ears and went to town.

trust me motor looks awesome. I did mean to ask you is that a 2.5i motor or an RS motor. 2.5i came with better cams and the piston profile actually changed even though both are EJ253 blocks. Was just wondering. as for calipers. For those who don't have money to buy calipers the stock calipers are not bad at all. what is a poor design are the rotors. they sell big rotor brackets for the RS which can be bumped up to 314mm !!! that will stop your ride just as good as WRX 4 pot and 2 pot. Sold mined and took the money and bought the brackets. with still money over for new pads. Sorry didn't mean to flame. Was just wondering if this block is stock or if you went ahead and did pistons since rods and crank are forged already.

Yea man, those welds look pretty clean especially taking into consideration the amount of time you've been at it. I love checking this build, such a thing of beauty.

Well the engine has made it an hour away to my dads shop.I mated the transmission up, I got a bunch of other stuff installed aswell....clutch fork boot, dust cover, starter, shifter linkage, driveshaft etc etc.


bought this rack from a member here....2 lines got crushed during shipping. Luckily I was able to reuse my lines. Installed the white line bushings too.


and here is where I left it so you know what's next

Are you going to install it onto the crossmember then lift it up? I assumed as much, but no crossmember in those pics.
