playing around with the swapped green car i picked.

the ecu in the car, any ideas what exactly it is from?





then took it for a ride and it bogs really bad when hitting boost, this might be a starting point.




then looking under the dash saw this fuse popped and when replaced it blew again:



i know it has a cel on but what is the procedure to pull them i'm unsure of because i don't know if the car is wired as an obd1 or 2

Pretty sure that's what came with my EJ20G wagon engine. Mine was a 96 EJ20G with TD04. V2 GF8

First for the Red Bomber a nice little gift



now on to the green jdm swapped coupe:

i wanted to get rid of the ver4 front bumper, so i down graded it back to the 95 impreza bumper. i believe it looks so much better.

also added in the crystal clear headlights and grill that matches for the hood looks correct.


some of the specialness that i found along the way:

so i actually started working on the 205 swap for the red bomber.

tore the engine to refresh it and sent the heads to the machine shop to be checked.

was called up and told i have cracks.

now the question is run them or scrap them.

talked to a few guys that deal with the 2.0 engines and most said to run them.

what do you think?

using a transmission jack made my life so much easier, feels like i'm cheating...

picked up a set of pink injectors for pretty cheap, now the decesion is do i go right to a bigger turbo or do i start with the td04





then i get a call from the wife... the battery light is on and i have no power steering.

okay maybe the belt just broke, but nope. couldn't be that easy of a fix at the auto part store.



just limped it home another 30 miles to home on the battery.

i never saw this happen in the 15 years of owning a subaru.
Wow I've never seen anything like that either, wow

Legacy turbo cross member and 04 sti steering rack with new bushings installed.

Now I have contact multiple gurus about my axle situation and the other Josh is using the same fxt transmission as I am.

We both ran into this issue.



As you can see the abs ring is sticking out.

Storm just said to ship it, my concern was no stone guard on the back side of the hub.

But he put my concern on hold saying there was oil seals protecting it and if I wanted to I could remove the abs ring since it serves no purpose for my car.

Now I'm on the hunt for Impreza male on male axles because of this.



The fxt axles are 4" longer than the Impreza ones.

Dirty transmission


Spent about an hour with purple power and then used the brake clean and compressed air trick to get it to a satisfactory clean.

I'm not shooting for show quality but clean enough for when I install it or work on it I don't get covered in grease and grime.

WRX gas pedal and pedal box installed.

Took a little time and enlarging a hole for the mount but I got them in.
