I'm surprised that they let you keep the motor in your dorm room. I would think that during the health and wellness imspections that they would get you for some sort of hazmat issue

Little update, basically rebuilt the whole front end, wheel bearings ball joints, tie rods/ends, axles, couple new seals here, a bushing and grommet there etc. Then i did the clutch, put a 8.9lb lightweight flywheel exedy oem spec wrx clutch with all new pressure plate throwout/pilot bearings.then came time for some new tires went up to a 225, got a decent deal on some closeout kumho ecsta ast's. Then was bored so i replaced the intake gaskets, along with injector orings, ported the intake manifold a little and gave it some red paint (+25KW). Then went for a drive up into W arkansas real good driving roads, some fun uphill and down hill, switchback/hairpins and some fast wide open turns aswell.

Little update, havent done much to the car just little things here and there, did a 3 gauge pod, 4 pioneer speaker all in custom boxes, suede over alot of the plastic interior.

gutted the grille and lower bumper opening.

cleaned up the engine bay and painted a bunch of stuff red. staight piped 3 inch axleback. Ran it at the 1/4 mi best time i ran was a 15.2.

drove it up north over new years to michigan, only went through a few blizzards.



earlier that month i drove my buddies 07 wrx tr for a little bit, further fueling my desire for boost,


finally found a harness i could pick up in michigan, met a guy thats on these forums, but doesnt really post except for his FS threads, had a nice full sti swapped rs that he was working on,

along with a turbo foz

got back home to louisiana two weeks later 2600mi logged on the rs, with about 1000 of that being without ever seing pavement under the snowpack lol.




only problem i had is when some ice blew my window out in illinois.

then came time to start on my wrx harness,



then labeled everything, (little tgv delete project in the back)

and now waiting for a little more $$ and out to dallas to pick up a jdm ej205

Went to pick up a sti 6spd and the guy was cleaning out some parts so picked up a twin scroll vf37, along with a sti manifold tgv less with 750cc injectors etc. The 6 SPD I got is a v7 non dccd 3.90 with LSD front diff. Came with starter and shift linkage wiring sensors etc. Still need front driveshafts, regear my rear diff, and a auto driveshaft.

got my ver 7 non dccd 6spd sti tranny in, what a PITA that was got it all together and regeared the rear diff to have the throwout bearing slip off the pressure plate due to a badly seated retainer clip... soo with no clutch i got it rolling threw it in first and drove it home without the clutch, then pulled the engine in my dormitory parking lot the following day with some pieces of wood and ratchet straps and fixed the clutch.

Now the fron subframe bolts are giving me isues, seems the threads are ****ed so i can either drill and tap to a larger size or just weld the bitch to the chassis, im considering the latter. Also started building i front crash bar/lightbar.

Then i drove it 1000 miles north back to michigan with a straightpiped exhaust, and the jdm ver7 6spd which does close to 4k at 80mph, that was relaxing. but made it there alright, minus the fact that my left front wheel decided to eat through my stainless braided brake line on the way up. the little holders for those that attach it to the strut like to slip around, had to take my vise grips and clamp off the line and run 3 brakes the rest of the way. Thats even more assuring and relaxing, i think its about time to get a DD and retire this to weekend/track duties. Anyways made it up to michigan been having some fun with it terrorizing people, rallycross and the likes.

grand traverse bay from the west side up in leelanau county
made a custom skid plate

then its time for rallycross




They continued to change the course around throughout the runs to avoid big ruts from developing, that got pretty annonying as it would completely disturb the flow of most corners. I got pretty bored of the changes...

Had 3 or 4 of the SCCA workers throughout the day tellme my car wont run in the next event with how loud it is, the starting gate guy wasnt to happy with ignition cut launch control either...


the first four runs of the day i was doing alright in the Modified Allwheel drive class i was in, surprisingly seeing how i was on almost bald summer tires. for the last four runs the course was reversed and they added alot more tight turns chicanes slaloms etc which i struggled with and racked up some bad times. Overall though it was fun my car did surprisingly well, and next one i attend i will hopefully have some dedicated dirt/gravel tires.
