Hi!

I know i've been dead online but i'm still around.

The car is currently apart. i've had lots of trouble recently with it but hey.... apparently this is my kind of punishment.

Run down on shenanigans since April:

- April parted most of the bolt ons on the car
- MIA May
- June I got my old built motor ready, i stripped 2 cam bolts (thanks stupid me for throwing in a 3/8" hex instead of a 10mm) it's been a while since i worked on a Subaru...........

The plan is now V mount with a Mustang billet intercooler.
Car is getting wrapped nardo grey as soon as i chop the fenders and clean up the paint

Few more bits here and there but she should be ready before fall!

I hate myself for even saying that.

I have a feeling that isn't because you are lazy lol. I know the feeling... I have a steering rack, Front LCA bushings, trunnion bushings, rear subframe inserts, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something ... just been stupid busy. Life happens fast!

So, let's get to business.

Machine shop I used for the motor I assembled, royally screwed me. they used ONE ROD to do bearing measurements on the WHOLE crank. BRUHHHHHHH. Needless to say, when I asked them what happens if a bearing spins because of their poor QC, they laughed and said that has never happened.

Guess who drained their oil and there is a ton of glitter after 1k miles? This guy.

The block will be coming apart, ill either redo it myself or buy a new closed deck block. I've got some 14mm head studs ready to go for it.

I need to raise my income to keep dealing with my luck

So about that assembled engine...

Tore it apart and one of the main rod oil feed holes were plugged by aluminum bits. Now engine is cleaned and ready to be inspected by a more experienced shop.

I'm getting tired by the end is near
