Subframe painted and in along with Whiteline Steering rack bushings.
Rotated the turbo just have to make a bracket for the wastegate.
Cleaned the power steering pump and started the rebuild kit until I mistaked the new black seal for the bearing seal.... Looks like I'm either going to try and find a new bearing or I'll just have to buy a new pump.
Picked up some parts over the last week, should be getting a lot of wrench time in tomorrow!
Picked up used intercooler piping for a front mount along with a HKS BOV, K'N intake, and Perrin turbo inlet hose. Also bought Kart boy crank pulley and pitch stop mount, Group N trans mount, Grimmspeed phenolic 8mm spacers, Walbro 255lph fuel pump w/ installion kit, and Whiteline outrigger and rear diff bushings
Clutch, flywheel, starter and trans fluid came in today. Also got to work on her for a little bit. Installed GC hydro pedal box (fits so much better) and started installing all the shift linkage and bushings. Hoping to get the trans in on Monday or Tuesday and wheel her out of the garage for the first time in a year!
Finally pressed the Whiteline solid poly bushing in the diff outrigger and put it back in also ordered a bunch of nuts and bolts I needed from Subaru. Super pumped finally feels like I'm going to be able to drive it soon
Transmission is in! Still waiting on a few nuts and bolts from the dealer to put the rear diff and and driveshaft in. Hopefully they come in tomorrow then sheíll get her well deserved engine bay cleaning. (Pics will come once I figure out what to post with now) Picked up a GD aluminum radiator for super cheap with fans, over flow tank and hoses. Ordered the iWire bracket and a new power steering pump which should be in Monday. If everything arrives on time the motor will hopefully be in next Monday or Tuesday!
Had some problems with the stock rear axles going in the new diff so I had to buy used ones from an 2.5rs and forester which went right in. After that I was able to button everything else up in the driveline and roll her out of the garage for the first time in over a year! Also cleaned and degreased the engine bay the best I could. Hopefully tomorrow I can get the motor in then itís just waiting on the rest of the exhaust and finishing the wiring for the 5spd swap before I can drive it.
Updates!! Went to put the motor in shortly after my last post and realized the auto trans bolts wont work with the new flywheel. So I had to order those along with the bolts for the clutch cover and the hardline for the clutch. Got the motor in about two weeks ago and now it's just been hooking up all of the lines and figuring out what parts I'm missing or need. Also got cheap ebay headers from someone on craigslist that didn't fit at all but managed to make work with the help of a grind a pry bar Hopefully will be uploading a video of the first start up sometime after the new year.
