madison was racing her WRX thru a field when she started having problems. when she stopped doing muddy donuts she started hearing the dreaded 2 liter "knock knock knock" sound. she has decided to do an STI shortblock, STI cams, ported TGV deletes, larger injectors, and a tune. in the future hopefully she will do an upgraded turbo :)

enjoy the photos!

we started by removing her old motor, thoroughly cleaning everything and laying it out for reassembly.

maddison bought a shortblock from a forum member, that turned out to be anything but a bargain. it has orange RTV squirting out of all the seams. the cylinder sleeves had scoring on them, and some genious put some high compression cast pistons out of a non turbo car in it.

needless to say we decided to return this thing, and get a new shortblock from subaru. it should be here shortly. heres the photos of the junk motor.

car is done and madison picked it up. the large injectors are a little dificult to tune on an 04 for some reason..... gotta be something with the ECU logic. most of the 02-03 stuff was easier....... and the STI's are always much easier. hopefully we will see her back in the future for a turbo and fuel pump upgrade.
