With the other two cars running stably, I got down to business:



We pulled the engine, trans, hubs, and control arms out. After a little over two years, it's time to start the EJ225 swap

The driver's side axle ended up puking its guts out after the boot tore, but it never clicked or anything:


And now I'm finally putting pezcore's pedal box to good use


Dash out:


Dash beam out:


Heater box and blower motor out:


And starting to put the new merged harness in:


And now I've got to figure out why this relay has no plug (the starter interlock relay?):


And what these connectors are for:

Bingo! I'll be building a hybrid of my 227K mile short block with the EJ205 heads from my WRX.

Well, there have been a few updates with Hogan:

Dropped Hogan's old engine cross member and steering rack:


Bolted up Hogan's new WRX engine cross member with an 04 STI steering rack:


I don't know why it was spray painted white. PMMJKL did it and denies it.

Tossed a cool WRX pedal cover on Hogan's gas pedal:


I later had to pull the pedal cover off and put it onto a GD gas pedal.

Found out that I got royally hosed by a reputable member here who sold me an incomplete iWire merged harness and never responded to me about it, and ended up sending Hogan's harness along with another WRX harness to iWire to have those merged correctly:



That took a little while. The guy does great work though!

While waiting for the harness, I got down to business on the rest of Hogan. I compared transmission cross members, then chose to reuse Hogan's old one because of the additional metal:


Then made Hogan go to 6:


Then got to work on Hogan's EJ225!

Nike's logo somehow appeared on Hogan's motor:


Stripping it down:




Shearing a coolant pipe bolt, fortunately it came out with a pair of vise grips:


The old head gaskets still looked great:


Tossing some (unnecessary) ARP head studs in:


And now the EJ225 starts to take form




I opened the hood and had to evict a tenant that wasn't paying rent:


Found that I have no idea what this coolant pipe is for, but even the plug and clamp are OEM EJ205 parts:






Tossed a timing belt on:


And a trusty TD04:


Crash187 gave me a V6 replica lip that he'd left in the sun and had warped, so I straightened that out and bolted it up to Hogan:


I then started on Hogan's rear end:


Pulled the rear diff:


Omiotek let me borrow his bolt inductor so I didn't repeat the same mistake I made with Artoo:


The rear subframe bolts were just a tad rusty:


Hogan got Artoo's old subframe:


And a quick comparison of the old bushing to the new Whiteline bushing:
Old and busted:

New hotness:


Then I tossed some GC8 aluminum control arms on:


IWire returned my newly merged harness to me last week, I swapped the harness in, then dumped Hogan's EJ225 in!


I still have a ways to go, but there's been a lot of progress!
