I'm loving this so far. If or more likely when I blow my ej25 in my forester I might have to do something along the lines of a ls swap. Especially since it's unheard of in Hawaii.

Lol. It's the way to go after you've been through three motors. Much more cost effective once the motor is in. The hard part it just sourcing everyrhing you want to run. After that and it's in the car it's cheap to maintain. Blow a motor and you can get anot her one ready to drop in for $500 bux. That's a 4.8l or 5.3l that is.

Yeah that's true. The iron blocks are a dime a dozen and all you need is a cam, springs and head bolts and you can run 800+ to the wheels. If you watch Matt from sloppy mechanics he made 992 wheel hp on a junkyard 6.0 through an auto before he bent 4 of the stock rods and the stock Pistons were fine. Like you said the expensive part is getting everything set up then hoping the 6 speed will handle power

Precisely! Hopefully the t56 we got will hold up. It's out of a 2007 cts v. Very similar internal components as a z06 trans.

Yea. I am having custom axles made from DSS. They already have done a few Subarus using this rear frame and differential setup. The driveshaft I'm having custom made here in town. Only thing I have to do is change out the the gear in the differential to get more top speed. Also putting a spool in it as well.

Thanks! Very informative and helpful!
Are the dss axles available on their website? Any reason you don't go through a custom driveshaft with dss too?

I'm going through TSSFAB to get the axles from DSS. I could do a driveshaft through them, but I like the idea of having the driveshaft made in town and they will have the car to spec it out perfectly.

Another day in the office. Anyone know of someone who can do a wire diet on the interior harness. Gutting out all the unnecessary crap.

That's a fancy ass bad ass hot side you got going on there. Are you using a twin scroll turbo? I really want to see that fitted in the engine bay.

Now to just put the 2 together. I'm interested to see if using that oil pan will solve the issue with the subframe/steering issue that others have had. Keep us updated!

There's nothing wrong with a stock ls1 or ls6 mani but if i was going to stay with stock component's than i could have assed everyrhing else to like use a ls6 cam and valvetrain, truck manifolds, etc....

^^^ very true bro. Everything looks awesome! I really want to see the motor mocked in in the car to see how it clears the subframe. If you need more clearance you could always use forester subframe spacers to give you a few more inches.
If you can get it to work with the stock subframe then I might have to find a forester x to put a ls into. Unless I blow up my motor in my fxt sooner then later.
