Just stopped by ARP today to pick up a new headstud that was stretched by the previous owner. If nothing tomorrow, going to start on the tear down of the engine to replace rod bolts with new ARP ones! Pics to follow also.

EJ207 Built, added the ARP headstuds, rod bolts, Gates Racing timing kit, and Fidanza Flywheel. Engine built and a couple things here and there left, but coming along!





Just picked up a decent set of 06 4/2 Pot Brakes!!

Picked up my Kartboy rear brake adapters and some ceramic pads. Will post up some pics once it all comes in! Can't wait for the upgrade!

The finished product!




I still need to get some 06/07 WRX rear rotors, but the H6 is working great so far! :)

Still had the H6 rear rotors and a very mushy pedal. Finally got some 07 WRX rear vented rotors and vacuum bled the brakes. Vacuum bleeding, works wonders!

07 WRX rear rotor!

Thanks bl00!

UPDATE:

A buddy of mine is parting out his 05 STi. He wants to keep the engine...but he's willing to get rid of the drivetrain ;). Project 6-speed, brembos, and BBSs will be commencing soon!

^Fricken awesome.
Love your progress. Reminds me of my car in a 2 door version.
Thanks, a lot of toiling has gotten it to this point so far. Trust me it only looks good in pictures. Rust and faded paint envelope the landscape! LOL, not too much, just enoughh to bug me.

You're switching to BBS? but your rims are so beautiful!
I would love to keep them, so light too. Switching to the Brembos and the 5x114.3 lug pattern forces me to get rid of them :(

On a lighter note, I acquired a Beatrush Dogbone engine mount! A little JDM goodness...that no one will see. LOL
