I decided to go ahead and put together a little DIY for the build on my Impreza.

*** Background ***
- Spun a rod bearing
- Replacing/upgrading/reconditioning everything


Right now I have only inserted general info under each picture to help people out, but eventually I plan to add more info as well as more pictures. My DIY is intended to be used with the help of a Factory Service Manual for exact specifications. Maybe I'll add those later, however. Anyways, even if you know how to build your motor I figured you might still find this interesting. Enjoy!

Any updates? I think I am in the same boat (spun bearing) and am looking at rebuild.

Can you go into specifics about what internals you used?

Looks good! We're working on an NA block right now too.

Let us know if you need any port work or coating done before everything gets back together!
