Hello folks,

I just received my Subaru track car that I was lucky enough to snag. This is my first Subaru, although my sand car was Subaru powered. I decided to go from american based race cars to something I am hoping that some of you guys and gals might have some info on the car. The seller only had generic information on what the car had. I am hoping to get some more detailed information. Who tuned it, what software they used ect. Maybe if I get really lucky there is a build somewhere on here.

I was told the engine was seized, however after inspecting it last night it appears to be something else.

The oil is clean, I can rotate the engine with a ratchet but there is something interfering. You can almost hear what sounds like something falling inside the engine (best I can describe it as is if a rod was broke and was able to flop in a cylinder) Its not loud and if you rotate the engine very slow there is not interference. I do not see any signs of trauma to the cases from the outside, i would think if a rod let go that would make a window pretty quick.

Hopefully ill get the engine out this week and see whats going on. The forums have been a wealth of content for me to read and I really appreciate how involved some people are.
