hmmmmm mabe we will start with a TEIN FLEX suspender package, and some 18"x8" fno1rc's.

Image

Image

Image

oh.. oh... and then we can strip an STI of its aluminum suspension components and perform some transplant surgery.

Image

Image

Image

these brackets dont actually hold anything.... so they have to go.

The brackets are for neon strobe lights!


Looks awesome. I wish I had that option for my car.

So Does this mean you"ll be able to stop before you hit a curb? Or will you need to call pooperhue for a wheel lock key and an extra 18?

while ryan is collecting parts for the engine build im developing a subaru specific turbo kit.

CAD drawings of the flange and flapper assembly.

Image

test cut off the CNC machine to make sure it fits correctly.

Image

first flange set cut from 3/4" sheet.

Image

wastegate flapper parts

Image

got the flange assembly for the upper most portion of the downpipe all mocked up and ready to weld..... and now its time for a beer!

Image

first completed flange assembly for the upper most portion of the downpipe

Image

CNC'd flange welded to the prototype uppipe

Image

Image

CNC'd flange on the opposite end of the prototype uppipe

Image

Image

upper most portion of the prototype 3.5" downpipe.

Image

Image

turbo mocked up in the car with the uppipe and downpipe bolted in place.

Image

Image

stay tuned for more progress!

went and got some new hardware to mount the turbo in place (we are mocking this up on kens STI)

Image

worked some more on the downpipe tie in to the existing cat back

Image

bought a reducer to transition to 3" from 3.5" but the reducer was made fora transition from 3" to 4" so i had to chop it down to make it work. welded on a stainless 2 bolt flange. so far this is the only flange we havnt had to custom make.

Image

put an angled piece on the reducer and also a flex joint

Image

finished up the downpipe tie in to the existing 3" exhaust..... kind of a bad picture but it turned out really nice.

Image

still need to make another lower exhaust mount, and we might need some heat shields but the turbo is bolted in place and everything fits just fine.

Good to see you're working on your own car.

we have been hunting for quite sometime time for an illusive 2.2 liter sand cast closed deck block from a turbo legacy to use as a starting point for a monster motor build for this forester. we finally found one but unfortunately it was in really rough shape. one of the sleeves has rotated in the bore and left me no window to remove the piston wrist pin. this is really rare. in fact we have never seen it before. i had to strip the block down as far as i could, then set the shortblock up in the mill and make my own hole thru the sleeve to remove the piston wristpin. the other bad thing was the motor was full of what looked and smelled just like vomit. it was so nasty i really didnt even want to put it on the mill. what if that smell never comes out of the mill? lol

hahaha yeah that block is crazy nasty.....

we finally got ryans forester back on the fabrication lift at the old shop to finish up this crazy rotated turbo kit.

i started on the brackets to support the weight of this ginormous turbo. had to be super strong, use stock mounting points, and be easy to get to all the bolts.

tonight we started working on figuring out he inlet piping and MAF sensor. we cut out a large section inside the fender area (thats why theres a bag over the engine) so that we can use the inner fender to house the huge filter and keep the sewer piping out of the engine bay as much as possible. this build is pretty tricky because not only do we have a 4" inlet where we are concerned with MAF resolution but we have to have room to run 4" piping without moving/re-engineering all the stock components. this is basically how we mocked everything up and what we hope it will look like when its all welded in place. Still to be designed are the water lines, oil return, and new power steering lines.

and here we go with a little more progress on the inlet piping...... the bend that drops into the fender will eventually be welded to a plate that is bolted to the fender so we decided to use a v-band clamp to make it easily removable.
