Same block. Similar block to what I had in my 2011. Only way to find out if it will last is to try.

Most of the oiling components should be arriving today. Still need FMIC as well. Took a few more mock up pics.





Likely have to cut ~6" off the exhaust dump to get it to sit flush with the side of the bumper.





Will have to extend this mounting tab a little to reduce stress on the flex before final install.



Good clearance around the oil pan and filter. Wastegate should be easy to access.

Storing the car for the winter? Looks like the turbo would make for a mean snow blower for the Midwest.

I'll probably take it out if there are any sunny days. I'm going to try and cram a filter behind the fog light cover for street use. We'll see how well that works out...

Beautiful setup xluben. You seem to go through parts like you change your underwear man. Are you planning to flip the intake manifold as well? Keep the detailed pictures coming as I want to see how everything pans out. Good luck with it.

Probably not right now, but I may do that later on.

Treadstone FMIC came in. It's huge! It's going to be a bit of work to make it fit with the turbo.











Also got a 48" 4AN line for oil supply to the turbo.

Thanks! Taking things slow right now. It's 0F in MN so there's no rush and not much motivation to work out in a cold garage.

I did a mock up install of the FMIC. Had to trim a couple tabs off just to get it mounted. I'll likely have to do a bit more trimming before the final install.



Unfortunately the turbo to FMIC didn't line up as perfectly as I'd hoped. I can't install both at the same time due to interference but I did some Photoshop overlays.







I will probably need to get a photo from directly underneath to confirm, but this is what I'm thinking so far. Chop off the end of the compressor outlet, and weld an elbow on.

Also will have to cut down the FMIC end tank inlet an inch or two. Then hopefully it will just be a straight or possibly 45 coupler to the intercooler. Any other thoughts?

Looks like it's going to be tight! you thought about using a 90 (pointed to the passenger side off the outlet tube of the turbo) and then a big 180 "U"? looks like there's a big depth disparity between the outlet and the inlet of the intercooler core...

I can rotated the turbo's compressor cover any direction I want. I have considered pointing it towards the fender, and then doing a 180 bend back to the FMIC, but I'd rather avoid a 180 if possible. Either way I would still have to chop off the FMIC end tank considerably.

I know you already have the turbo and all but... but what if you had a counter clockwise turbo? would that fit any better?

Yeah, it's a huge core. Almost seems too big. Hopefully it will perform well.

It might, but I don't think PTE offers any counter clockwise turbos. Not really interested in switching at this point anyways. I should be able to make it work.

Could you mount the intercooler upside down? Might solve the problem

Wouldn't fit unless I started cutting the frame apart.

Cold in MN right now. One of these days I'll get working on it though.

For the last 4 or 5 months I've been using them just sitting on my workbench. Unfortunately that meant that the vast majority of my workbench was unusable (occupied by the large speakers). This week I ordered a pair of wall mounts from Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CR64BE/

They bolt onto studs and are rated to hold up to 88lbs. More than enough for the 32lb speakers that I have. Once I got them, they were much larger than I imagined but they work great. I drilled a couple 1/4" pilot holes and then screwed in the long bolts with my impact wrench. They seem very sturdy.

I also ordered a pair of 12" reflectors for my lights. Until I get the cieling finished I am hoping they'll help keep less of the light going into the rafters, and more of it going onto the ground. They seem to work alright, but with my huge CFL's I could use a larger reflector (but I didn't see any of similar design).

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E8X4L0/

Here are some more updated photos. Still lots of clutter.

That looks like it would literally fit good if the intercooler could somehow, someway fit mounted inverted. The endtanks and inlets are wrapped backwards, so in theory, if you inverted it, and clocked the turbo 90 degrees counterclockwise, the comp side would be a straight shot to the intercooler. I've seen alot of setups like that. I have also seen alot of offset cores due to space too, lol.

Cut off some of the FMIC end tank and got it mounted at the same time as the turbo.









Also, had Fobia extend the header by 1/2" and extend the mounting tab a little bit.

You've seen a lot of setups like that? One a Subaru or a different chassis? To mount it upside down I would have to cut out a lot of the frame (including where the core currently mounts to). And even after that it would still definitely NOT be a straight shot. It would need at approx a 90 bend off the turbo, and it would still hit the compressor housing just like it does now.

Here's a shot from the side that kind of shows the depth difference.



To really clean things up it would be best to mount the turbo directly to the end tank. Unfortunately that would require more frame cutting a some funky bends in the header. This car's setup looks great, but the turbo is much longer than mine. It is actually the same header, but the extra long turbo allows the compressor to sit much further forward and bolt right onto the end tank.

Yeah, the setup in the link is basically what I was envisioning in my head. Sorry if I seemed confusing, I worked 12 hrs last night from 5pm to 5am, haha.

It does look nasty though, and no doubt this thing will scream. I love the setup of the turbo feeding straight into the end tank, I guess it's just a matter of what to hack up and modify in order to do it.

I got a few garage/car related items as gifts this year.

Wall Mount Tire Rack
Battery Charger
Snap On Universal Joint Sockets





I wanted to get one of the tire racks to see how I liked them. They seem nice for the price and the folding feature is great. I'll be buying a couple more soon.

The sockets are my first non-Harbor Freight tools. They cost about as much as the 4 foot wide tool chest. Haha. Very nice quality. Sure to be super useful too.
