Ok guys little update haven't updated in a while
So the car is obv still stored away. I haven't had a chance to get in and get the measurements for the front spilter and rear diffuser so hoping ill get that this weekend and get those made up
Was talking to Freedom Shop about the build. So we decided on;
Manley Pistons and rings
Manley Turbo Tuff Rods
King Bearings
and for the heads
ARP head bolts
Brian Crower Stage 2 cams
BC valves
BC valve springs and retainers
BC valve guides and stoppers
Going to machine and port the heads as well for some more flow
So while the engine is getting built me and a buddy will try and tackle the wrap again. Hopefully this time will go better then last haha

God its been a while and seems so slow going :\ but I should be placing the order next week for the head parts.

Cooking something up with Fisik Aero tat should make the car stand out some people might not like the result hah but that's ok.

Went to go check on my car last week and snapped the key off in the lock lol just my luck. But we are hoping to have the car out in the next couple weeks. We will start wrapping the car and possibly pull the engine then as well.

Also have to get in contact with Misihimoto and get brackets for the oil cooler which im also debating selling it.

But that's a little update for now

Well sucks to say that the plan has changed a bit the full long block build started getting a bit to high in price for me right now so the new plan is to order the parts for the short block.
Going to take apart the block and see what the oil problem is. We are thinking its the valve stems so going to replace the stems with new ones and relap the valves to make sure a good seal is there.
Going to take a look at the sleeves and see what kind of shape they are in and of machining is necessary then I will do that. But if not I will prob just hone the sleeves and drop in a set of pistons.
New spoiler is at the CNC shop and hopefully getting started today or tomorrow. Then its off to powercoat.
Sold my old White shift knob and my STi spoiler. So I was looking around for ideas on how to fill the holes in the trunk but it looks like my best option is to get a new trunk and paint it.

Little update today.
So I went and removed my trunk so that I could get the holes filled in.
So first there are 3 connectors you have to disconnect,
The first two run right through the trunk over to the far left and is held down by 3 pins that you can either just pull really hard hah or use a small set of needle nose and push together on the back to get it to come out.

Next is just one which I found it best to use a little flat top to push the middle tad down.

Next you have the little hydraulic release for the trunk which you just haul and lift out of position. Just like the cable brakes on a bicycle.

Then you have four 12mm bolts keeping the trunk in place.

and then your done forgot to do a little write up on the spoiler removal but if anyone has questions feel free to ask me.

So next was the filling of the trunk holes.
So first you have to remove the rear emblem and license plate and the lid. All simple work. Few bolts on back and your done.

Next was to weld a small thin piece of metal on the trunk. I was told its tricky to do and where its thin could possible warp the steel. As seen in the pic had to use a small hammer to bring the metal down.

Then sand the metal down.


next was to put some filler on to it and let it settle.

and that's where I sit as of right now hah more to come!

Wait, you couldn't find another trunk? A silver impreza or anything? That's sad.
