Summer Upgrades
« on: August 04, 2016, 01:47:54 PM »
Well i picked up a used intercooler and that snowballed bad. I ended up with an used fresh 2.5 subaru, rebuilt mendeola 2d, used microstubs, new seats, and some other misc parts. Got the old setup pulled out, cut some old mounts and tube out, and started installing the new setup this weekend

I had a 2.0 running 17 pounds of boost and a built 091. New motor is a new sti block with forged pistons and an aftermarket turbo. Outfront said they can do their 400hp race fuel tune with 15 pounds of boost on the setup for a few hundred dollars. Trans is a fresh mendeola 2D geared for the subie.
I will look through the garage and see what i have big dave

  What kind of horsepower where you getting out of your 2.0? at 17 pounds of boost. I don't want to go over 300 horse, I run an 091 box built with all weddle gears  from Arizona transaxle. but they're only rated a 300 hp,.  So I kind of want to keep it under that or right at that. sounds like yours is going to be pretty mean with your new configuration.   I run with a guy here in town that's got an outback motor rated at 400  horse with a Mendiola it does scream. I'm sure you will love it.  I got fortunate and got into my 2.0 at the right price. everything polished turbo, adapter plate ECU and harness for two grand. couldn't pass it up. would love to upgrade to 2.5 down the road.  Really need to figure out the intercooler though that's the big find. Look forward to watching your build. looks like it's going to be fun.

I had a dyno sheet that showed 269 hp to the tires but after talking with John at Outfront he said there is no way. He said it was probably closer to that horsepower at the flywheel.  I trust him since building these motors is his specialty and he has built tons of them. He said lots of places manipulate the dyno to show better numbers. I got a steal on my motor too. I paid $2600 for the turnkey motor, adaptor, dual disk clutch, and ron davis radiator. And the motor came with a rebuild sheet from outfront showing a brand new STI block and aftermarket forged pistons. I may be interested in selling the intercooler setup i have. The outfront setup would leave me a little more room to lay the radiator down more. I am excited to drive the new setup for sure. My plan is to have the deck closed on my motor next summer so i can turn the boost up and get closer to 500hp.

Picked up the new fuel tank last Monday and started mounting it. Also drew up the new rear trailing arms with a buddy yesterday. He has some fine tuning to do before we cut them but we have the basic design figured out now.

I would shitcan the bushing inner. If you ever need to adjust it, the bushing will not. Uniball's work much better.

I am bolting these to the existing trailing arm tube and did not want to remove the existing mounts if possible. I thought about the uniballs but was not sure if the arms would retain the same arc if the inner pivot could rotate. Have you ever built arms with them?

the mouning points on the chassis dictate arc during trailering arm swing so the uniballs won't change the angle or direction the trailing arm swings. they will just give you the ability to adjust tow and camber way easier than the bushing which does allow for a little but not much adjustment. you'll have to make spacer to fit in to the pivot pocket.
