Got the block back from the machine shop finally yesterday. Had it hot tanked, honed for my CP pistons, cleaned, and the eagle rods checked to make sure they were ok.

Today, my 2005 LGT transmission came through R+L Carriers. Not too happy about the transmission. I was under the impression that it was a complete tranny. For what I paid, it should have included the transmission, sensors, wiring harness, dip stick, throw out bearing, fork, cover shift link, and the stubs. Instead I got only the transmission box and that’s it. Pretty pissed about it. Hope I can use most of the missing parts off of my blown 2.5rs tranny…hope…

Going to assemble the shortblock on the weekend and get this thing back together.

Next I have TWE fully built SOHC heads and an aquamist HSF-5 kit to put on and im done.

Block:



Canabolized tranny that im going to have to piece together:

anyone know if I can use most of the parts off my RS tranny to make up for the lack of parts on my lgt tranny...?
I know for sure I am not going to use the 2.5rs fork, id rather get a stronger legacy one.

You might have to find some WRX bits and frankenstein that bitch. Not sure about interchangability between RS and LGT. G/L!!!

RS transmission has 2 sensors and a hanress coming off the front differential...




Then new LGT gearbox has the locations for the sensor but am unsuare if I can reuse RS sensors and wiring.




Can RS and Legacy parts incterchange at all?

Had about an hour free today so I began reassembling the shortblock.

1. Crank washed
2. Eagle rods cleaned
3. Put ACL race rod bearings in
3. Checked every clearance
4. ACL Race Main bearings put in
5. Crank lowered into block half

Have about a week before my head parts from TWE come in so I am only going to do 1 hour a day of fun time with the block.

Anyways, here are a few pics...









More to come. Stay tuned.

Got the pistons in and everything connected.

Slowly but surely...
