well, made quick work of getting her torn back apart, re-orienting the rings and getting it all back together.



moroso pickup


pan doesn't fit

so i ordered a used ej257 pan on ebay which is supposed to be better at keeping oil near the pickup. cuz fuck going backwards and using the old pickup. haha


all this momentum to just hurry up and wait for parts. :/
here's a teaser to keep me motivated

Sue the manu...nvmd.


:lol:
haha for emotional distress! but anyway, the bolt is pretty skinny for the pre 96 stuff. I accidentally bough a cap bolt for the newer models and it definitely looks like it could take 14ftlbs but doesn't even fit my cam caps. so they're all getting the 7ftlbs treatment.

annddd someone stole my mail so my half moons are further delayed. UGH

What the fuck happened to the site?

Anyway, big week for me!
Since I worked so hard getting the metal to shine I decided to layer it with some clear engine enamel


Group N mounts. I used the brackets that came with my v2 clip cuz they had that cool heat shielding


WRX clutch ksb03


and back where we belong



need some hardware thats coming in the mail cuz I had to upgrade to the 97+ shift linkage.
then trans xmember goes up, then driveshaft.
Then just engine bay work before we can get serious.

debating on the parallel fuel mod though at a minimum i'm routing stainless lines instead of the hard pipes.
SS steering lines
and an AOS
(input welcome)

You know what'd be real neat? if someone made a silicone hose kit for me to replace all these damn coolant connections.

I had to buy this tool but it worked great!


I'm gonna have to drill to mount the PS cooler. I bought compression tube fittings to AN for the cooler, gonna cut the flare off. Should be fun. The fittings are rated to 250psi and only using them on the low pressure return stuff.


mocking up and measuring


he's eager to go for a ride.


took this shot to plan out my saikou michi catch can setup and PS line routing


wheels don't clear the 4 pots, gonna have to get some spacers


front axles in, and brakes on.


toasty oil filter with the wrx cooler


and this is what I get for buying ebay stuff, no way in hell this is gonna bolt up. I hope its just the uppipe and not the manifold too.


Next up is bleeding the brakes while I wait for the compression fittings to finish the PS lines.

I got more of the wiring harness laid out, trying to do it cleanly. Made the PS feed line and part of the return, still waiting on the tube fittings.

I laid out the wire harness and started tucking things in.



things are still just resting in place but its getting closer


I don't want to put the washer bottle back in, or the IC sprayer bottle.. and are the boost solenoids easy to relocate?

look at how cute this lil guy is!

I've since cut back the sleeving so that the AN adapter fits all the way on the pipe

ready to start cutting for the fuel lines


Just got this pic from Ray @ AutoHero


this reservoir is from a 94 altima, also made by nabco/namco whatever the fuck. fits perfect



got the 5mm spacers on but now I'm concerned with thread engagement. I'm gonna measure it but I might try to see if I can drop to a 2mm spacer or just get extended studs

still waiting on the tube adapters from the UK so I can finish my damn PS lines... only place I found metric sized tubes. (PS res and cooler are 10mm and standard stuff didn't fit)
anyway, finally got the correct shifter bucket bushings and got the driveshaft up




front sway bar up, I need to get another set of ramps so I can tighten all this shit with car weight on it.


got a bunch of shit powder coated


building my fuel lines on a wild friday night! yeee


fit checking


I like the FPR here, last time I had it by the washer bottle but this hides the lines so much better


lines done! taken apart and cleaned out



hurry the fuck up, dad! We got bitches to pick up!


this picture makes me happy


intake manifold bolted up, wiring connected, coolant hoses connected - i still have to sort out the coil wiring cuz the way I had them routed they weren't long enough. They were routed based on my old pictures when I was taking things apart but maybe my new ones didn't have pig tails that were the same length. they reach if I go through the manifold runners instead of around but I gotta figure out what happened there.


Two outlying problems I'm facing:
1. Whats the best way to restore plastics? I want to redo the timing covers but all the products I see out there are super temporary. I've heard of using a heat gun but then heard i ruins the plastic.

and 2. When I tried bleeding this thing I had a strap compressing the slave so the piston wouldn't pop out, but in the car the pedal wouldn't pump at all. it was frozen and yes the bleeder was open. I pulled it out and was able to move it the way it sits now but I also popped the piston out and pissed fluid everywhere. cool. any ideas?
