Background: I stalked the forums for about a year before I decided that I really wanted an STI. I put my order in for an STI limited SWP, sun roof, and nav in around February, and picked it up June 6, 2013. It was a horrible, horrible wait. But it happened!

Finally, the time has come for me to create a build thread since I have more than a few modifications. So I have come to the point to build my motor. I went through one engine at 22k miles while completely stock. Ring land failure. Fortunately warranty covered it. But now, at 52k miles, I have two spun bearings(3 and 4).



Car has been down since June 2016, but I'm currently in the works of getting everything together. The list below will be organized like most peoples threads. Current, ordered, future purchases, etc, you get the point.

My custom made gauges from Speedhut. They're perfect.

Re: tylerandreas: IAG, Flex Fuel, Racekor.

There is something about the simple, limited wheels / wingless look that I love about your car.. Possibly making me think about going wingless on mine.

Great looking subie! Definitely will follow your build.

Thanks for the love. I think going wingless with the ts rear lip is my favorite mod visually. The wing is just too much for me. Bassler's ZE40 setup on his car has already swooned me into buying that setup in the spring. haha

Check out Speedhut.com, you can customize anything you want. Luckily enough I have friends that work there so I get some parts for a bit cheaper than the Average Joe.

No, it's pretty much stock with the exception of a wrinkle red AEM intake. Motor is getting pulled this weekend and the new IAG stage 2 is getting put in when I get the heads back from the machine shop. Should get the stuff in red above anytime this week.

Re: tylerandreas: IAG, Flex Fuel, Racekor.

I may just have to go that route as well with that lip. And +1 as well to those speedhut gauges, they are awesome looking. I've been trying to find a good alternative to having to dish out the cash for DEFI's and might go that route too.

Are you planning to go with a bigger or rotated turbo setup when you have your engine in? I'm dropping mine off this week to get my stage 2 built block in and am torn between stock location or just saving up and going rotated.

Honestly, if I would have researched more in the beginning I would have gone rotated for sure. But I'm at the point where I'll be doing nothing but losing money. I am on the fence between a Blouch 20g XT as a few pop up on the forums, or a 1.5 stock location. I mean, both are in the range of 450-480whp on E85 and that should be enough for anyone.

I'm really only held back by headers, intercooler, and turbo at this point for the power I want. I'm not interested in more than 500whp, so that means I'm good to leave the heads alone.

Re: IAG, Flex Fuel, Racekor.

Looks like I was a derp and forgot about motor mounts. When I was under my car this past weekend they all looked fine. But I'm going to upgrade to group N motor and trans mounts while it's out.

Is there any reason to get bigger mounts? Like Perrin or something? They are like 3 times as expensive as Group N stuff. Also, talking to my tuner Ryan Kitchens at Simple Performance today about needing anything else before the tune. Much excite.

It's just a journal to keep track of what you have done, where your build is at. I like the concept.

Also, all mounts have been ordered. We also forgot about the PNP Adaptors for the injectors. That would have been super upsetting to not have. So those have been ordered as well. Just waiting for everything to come in. Motor is getting pulled Sunday so that's exciting.

IAG, Flex Fuel, Racekor.

Engine is out. First Subaru engine I've pulled, it was actually really easy. Hardest part was a bell housing bolt that decided it wanted to take about 8 threads out with it. Gotta thank my friends Jonny and Jory for helping me out.

Should be getting my motor from Prime Motoring soon so I'm going to wait to get my heads machined for a little so I can remember how to put everything back together.
