friction plate on my fidanza flywheel was pretty beat up. Bought a replacement which was actually advertised a Toyota Supra 7mgte plate (same part number)

I could've bought the right studs but wheres the fun in that?





I had to cut the stud shorter than shown to clear the x-member during install

More interior work done. HVAC, bulkhead wiring, body wiring, dash beam



stock tune bro. Don't mind the wires. Those are the OEM IC sprayer wires that I'm not using.

yea, i was talking to him today about it at work. He said it went well. Stopped with a conservative tune. Of course I can't remember numbers

You would've seen it if you guys came to the auto-x. Took 3rd

Got the dash in and started connecting connectors

Apparently I tossed the 04 USDM STi 6MT in there too.



rust and corrosing strikes again; passenger door to bulkhead connector. Driverside looked the same

Had to grab a fender from the scrapyard since both the RS and brighton had beat up passenger side fenders. Had to fill a couple dings



Sanded down and primed. I didn't end up painting this until much later

My block had been at the machinist while building the car in the previous posts. Motion Machine converted my EJ20G CDB to a #5 thrust bearing block. He also fit some +.5mm stroker Mahle pistons. Yes, stroker.

Got the block back, time to start building.

Decked



Picture showing the galley to an oil squirter







Got the girl to play with the lube







New heat treated 79mm STi crankshaft



had to install new head alignment dowels since the block was decked



OEM STi forged rods





Mahle Power Pak stroker pistons 92.5mm 4032 forged
