Re: Corentco's 2011 WRB STi sedan build

Quick update.

After installing the RCE yellows on the car this past weekend and snapping some of the pics above, I was able to get an alignment first thing this morning. Initial impressions are yes the car is slightly stiffer than the factory 2011 setup, the turn in responce is better/more direct, there's no leaning/but you can feel corner weighting as you loaded the springs and new found stability = driver confidence in the corners. The car handles quite a bit better and has a nice stance (roughly 3/8"-1/2" drop). Highly recommend these on factory bits w. a good set of sways.

Can't wait for the GTWorx/Bilsteins! Great stuff RCE (Myles) and thanks to Jason (really knows his stuff) and the folks at Dales Motorsports in Canada.

Looks great man! The only thing I would suggest is the R205 fender badges- seems like it would really bring the grill and window tint together? Have you thought of that or?

I had. The local shop had a set in their display case a few months back, but at the time I wasn't sure of how they'd look. I believe I'll have revisit the badges as they stand out for sure.

Thanks.

Re: *updated Nov 27th* Corentco's 2011 WRB STi sedan build

Thought I should post an update as its been a while and there has been quite a bit of work that's been down over the past few weeks.

I started down the path of replacing the bushings 1 by 1 and found ever change made a significant difference. Whiteline's steering rack bushings made a huge difference in steering feel and turn in. The STi group N tranny mount with the Whiteline positive tranny bushings made rev matching shifts have a more direct/responsive feel. The STi group N engine mounts are allowing more power/loading to the road. The rear diff bushings and support make the rear end feel extremely planted. I can't believe I'm back on the stock suspension setup with winter tires and the car feels so good right now. Just phenomenal overall outcome.

Due to having the lift the engine to install the engine mounts, I decided to tackle the oil pan, pickup and baffle at the same time. Just for reference the engine mounts are extremely difficult to replace while the engine is still installed. I don't recommend this install to someone as a DIY if your not mechanically savvy. The pan went in quite well and the build quality is top notch. The Killer Bee stuff is gorgeous. Just a few notes,the factory pan is very thin walled and the liquid gasket used by Subaru bonds really well, so you need to finess it off if your going to reuse the factory pan.....I wasn't worried as I was installing a new one and had to damage the OE unit a bit to get off.

I've updated my original post with products and pictures above.

Big thanks to Josh, Geoff and Simon from Trackwerks for helping with parts for the build.

Re: *updated Nov 27th Killer Bee oil pan, plus bushi* Corentco's 2011 WRB STi sedan b

Quick question for you, sir. I'm doing motor mounts and the same KillerB parts next weekend. How did you go about supporting the engine with the oil pan off? Or did you do the mounts, then the pan, or vice versa?

I see you removed the exhaust manifolds. Did you find it was required or just made it easier? Did you reuse your manifold gaskets?

Mounts first then the oil pan.

After removing the top mount intercooler, pitch mount and upper rad brackets and removing the lower nuts on the OE mounts, I raised the car by jacking the OE oil pan enough that the bottom bolt for the mounts were above the supports then changed them out for the group N pieces prior to putting on the killer B parts. I had the car on ramps and a stand under the tranny as a safety. After the engine mounts were installed I reversed the nuts on the bottom of the new mounts to keep the engine up high enough to get those back four bolts. Here's a picture of how it looked.



You don't need to remove the exhaust to get the OE pan off, but when I was trying to dry fit the killer B pan it interfered with the drivers side/mid section. I removed them to make sure it was an easy fit and my liquid gasket (used Permatex right stuff instant gasket) lined up nicely. Not sure if it would have fit otherwise, but it only took 15 mins to remove the required manifold sections. I did reuse my manifold, just double checked it for leaks when I fired it back up again. No issues.

Hope this helps and good luck. The OE pan took a little while to remove, but I made sure to damage it rather then the block.

Look forward to meeting you, your car looks amazing. I'll be supporting the shop next summer at some of the track events.

Great bunch of guys that have really been a big supporter of our brand as of late. Highly recommend them.

Thanks for posting the pics! Car looks great!!! :tup:
Thanks Chris! Your oil combo (pan, pickup and baffle) fit perfectly. Very well designed/made pieces, almost hate to cover them all up. With the radiator and alternator shroud already in my engine bay, all I'm missing is your header and I'd "bee" using all of you stuff.

Great products man. :tup:

Re: *updated Nov 27th Killer Bee oil pan* Corentco's 2011 WRB STi sedan build

Just noticed something. Why did you pull the radiator brackets?
Just to allow the radiator to move freely. It pulled backwards (towards the engine) a bit when I had the engine jacked up. There are stresses on the upper and lower hoses when the engine is lifted to the required height and this relieves some of it as the rad can tilt as the engine moved upwards and slightly towards the firewall. It was recommend in the service manual when jacking the engine, but not removing it. It's two 12mm bolts if memory server me right and 10 secs. Better safe than sorry IMO.
