One Week Later

12/29/2012

I’m still beyond thrilled with the work that Archie did.  Everything is just humming along perfectly.  I took a few quick pics of the engine bay to show off some of the custom work and piping involved with this setup.  I’d say Archie made it look a LOT better than it was before, but, its […]

First Crank

12/21/2012

The first time I met with Archie about the installation of my new engine, I mentioned that I wanted to make the engine bay a bit tidy.  In my opinion, Subaru has a pretty ugly engine bay, and is very hard to tuck and shave anything.  Archie kept that in mind and was able to […]

Progress Notes

12/21/2012

Archie has been doing a great job and I just wanted to jot down a few notes before I forget them.  There’s always hiccups along the way, but pretty minor IMO. The Five-O Motorsport Injectors have a few tabs on the injector body that needed to be filed down.  They didn’t clear the TGV housing, […]

P&L Rotated Turbo Kit Review

The parts all looked great.  Good welds, the coating looked […]

P&L Rotated Turbo Kit

12/12/2012

When I was looking for a rotated kit I had always heard great things about P&L’s fabrication and quality.  I got a smoking deal on a brand new kit and it just arrived.  It has received brand new ceramic coatings on both the uppipe and downpipe.  A Tial 44mm EWG is included, as well as […]

Parts are here!

12/11/2012

A lot of my parts have been arriving over the past few days, and it’s finally feeling real.  The cylinder heads have been installed and I’ll be dropping by the shop to go take some photos and check on the build.  I might be driving it this weekend, woohoo! Above are some of the photos […]
