Default 2006 Subaru WRX TR build thread

So figured I start a build thread

Picked this thing up and immediately ditched the broken home depot lip bumper


Then after throwing it on the lift noticed the eBay coilovers were junk and the shock bodies had so much play in them (felt like a bad wheel bearing) I ditched them and found something a little better (Truharts) temporary of course been focusing on the engine build which I will outline in a second. These truharts are okay definitely better then the eBay ones but are a little bouncy in the rear but again will be going with something better once I'm ready (FEAL? FORTUNE AUTO?)


So on to the engine


So I'm working with Kinetic Motorworks for this build as you can see we went with a close decked EJ 255 heads are going to just be reworked/refreshed(stock)

As far the breakdown goes
BLOCK
Weisco Pistons
Manley Rods
Nitride Crankshaft
Killer B oil pickup
Killer B oil pan baffle

FUEL
ID 1050
AEM Fuel pump

SoCal VF48 20G ported (having the compressor housing ceramic coated)


Grimmspeed EWG up pipe
Tial 44mm EWG (Dumped to atmosphere)
Invidia catless downpipe
Stock STI header (Till BNM Performance starts taking orders again want the Madusa 4-1 UEL)

Cobb Accessport V3
Cobb EBC
Cobb AOS (Air oil seperator)

GDT cylinder 4 cooling system

New Poly motor mounts
Pitch stop mount

Perrin Turbo inlet
Big TMIC
TGV Deletes
STI oil cooler

ACT clutch
Resurfaced flywheel

New oil pump
Water pump
Timing belt
All new bearings
Arp head studs
Headgaskets

Probably missing something but that just about everything Ive ordered so far

What's the time frame from buying the car to going for a built motor?

Trying to hit any power goals or just seeing what the build will net you?

Car looks real clean though from the pictures. That mismatched color scoop though..

I decided to go built motor almost immediately I bought the car maybe a month ago and just waiting on engine machining but should start the swap in a week or two hopefully. I'm shop neighbors with Kinetic Motorworks so I spend alot of time with the guys over there Kyle and Joe are good people. I honestly bought the car with the intent of doing this so yeah haha. Bought I don't have a specific power goal but I'm definitely giving myself room to grow so to speak the transmission is the limiting factor here so I won't be able to push crazy numbers till I get a 6 speed in the car but maybe 350-400 we'll see I have a GTX3071R that would make fore a good rotated setup in the future. Well see where I'm at down the road.

I respect the commitment. You do much driving in that pre-build month to get a before and after feel?

Unfortunately the clutch is toast so I'll never really have a good before and after comparison
