I took a look inside and was horrified by the amount of metal shavings, just thinking about those going through the turbo makes me cringe



From the turbo side



The up pipe was factory sealed Invidia. I guess it's too much to ask for them to flush out all the shavings for the price. Anyway, I started the day off with a wash since the forecast is sunny all week long and then some



I cleared some more space in the shed by putting the Forester trunk gear in my L



It's not quite a perfect fit but I'm not complaining



Fits pretty well considering the age and model gap



I decided I'm gonna put the seat heaters in the RS seats



I bet this piece of crap tie down didn't last a year



OEM FTW



In preparation for the swap I got rid of the stock airbox, FEEL THE 2.2 POWERRRRRR!!!

I just pulled the fuel tank so now the shell can go to scrappers. I decided against just throwing the motor in the L and actually doing some maintenanceish stuff while it's more accessible. I cleaned up the subframe and spilled a lot of atf in my grass not paying attention to the reservoir. Good thing I don't give a crap about my lawn







There was so much grease everywhere from the cv boots coming off now it's much cleaner. I can't get the motor mount off for the life of me, I stripped the nut it is being such a pita. While I was letting the degreaser soak I prepped the header for paint





I used a whole can of VHT header paint





I put the heatsheilds back on and noticed I have a special delivery from Bangkok. Rally-Tech flaps are installed and I love the subtle look with no stickers







I don't know what you are supposed to use to get that inner tab secured on the fronts but I just got some self tapping screws

It better be, if this one gets totaled I'm getting an Evo

Starting to dip into my box of treasures, I got the motor mounts installed



Pulled the fuel pump and replaced it with the DW200



It was a real pain to get it in there, the pump is just short enough to fit. I replaced the hose with a shorter length from the kit and used the rubber bushing from the kit



I got the Perrin inlet to fit, it was a real pain in the **** to get the oem inlet out. I cannot fathom what kind of super powers you would have to posses to do that swap without taking the manifold off. I needed to take it off to replace the bpv hose anyway. You can clearly see how the stock FXT hose is at a totally different angle than the STi



Seriously a pain in the ass, I had to take the fuel lines off the bottom of the manifold in order to squeeze it out of there



The fuel lines are pretty snug on the inlet but not deforming it or anything it's still kinda loose, pretty close to the tgv's too



I did have to move some of the screw clamps so they weren't pressing into the inlet



This hose on the turbo side needs a special elbow that I will probably have to fab myself, shouldn't be that difficult I have no idea what kind of sensor is inline there



the tmic crossover pcv hose is flared hella at the end so it doesn't fit snug at all over the 90 that came on the Perrin inlet. I can't decide if I want to replace the hose or the 90 but another easy fix



The Samco STi hose kit is perfect for putting a STi intercooler on a 255

Since I've been working so damn much I haven't had a lot of time to work on stuff, my car spends more time in this parking space than in my driveway it seems



It was here that I realized the Perrin inlet does indeed suck and decided to put the oem inlet back in



I didn't do a super thorough cleaning of the motor but I got a lot of the grime off, new tgv gaskets were $20 at the dealer what a rip. I'll end up doing composite tgv deletes at some point, just not worth the top feed conversion at this moment



Stock inlet is back in place and fits like a dream. I started getting the pcv system ready for catch-canning by blocking the manifold valve and the inlet check valve. The Y adapter is from a N/A motor and will be used to drain the catch cans back into the crank case



Up-pipe brackets installed and checking fitment of the turbo, tmic and bpv. The driver's side tmic bracket is fine but I need a longer STi bracket for the passenger side



Capped off the PCV nipples that won't be used any more and it looks like the Y from my n/a motor is going to be in the way so I'm going to be using a single drain I think



Samco dump hose fits like a glove, I'm not sure how it could be an issue using the stock inlet but with the Perrin it was hitting hardlines at the inlet side



Plenty of room all the way to the BPV and some give going toward or further from the inlet, I would say perfect fitment



The vacuum hose on the other hand... there is no way to make it work, it needs to be replaced with a longer hose



After the assembly I can say that I really want to source a STi bracket the turbo side of the top mount, it's just floating there and so easy to move



I tried to have the best pic for car of the month, touched up the exposure but now they look foggy instead of dark

Put a few little touches on thanks to subiwag for scoring some goodies. The DEPO clear marker lights I swapped out quick, can see them in the previous pics. Also picked up a RS wiper arm with the aero blade. Paint was bad on both mine and the one RS one so I scuffed them up with a scratch pad



Hung them in my super fancy spray booth



I thought I had a can of ultra flat but I must have used it all, settled for satin black



Looks pretty good to me



I took off the rear wing and cover the holes with vinyl tape





v5 wing or bust

Got it washed by circus girls trying to raise money to go to burning man



Then went shopping, my haul: 0w20 for $5.25qt, 5w30 for $4.98qt and a bunch of other stuff super cheap



Clutch finally came after a butt load of phone calls and anal irritation
