My son and I bought an 04 FXT as a rebuild project!
Wrecked valves from AC tensioner failing and belt cutting through the timing cover and skipping teeth! Car has 110k on it and here we go with the rebuild list.
Supertech +1mm valves and guides.
Crower springs, retainers and keepers.
Zimmerman (PHX) to do the valve job.
Gates Race belts and timing kit.
Wiseco 100mm forged AP pistons.
Manley Rods with ACL Race L and R
The good head studs.
Subaru Gasket kit and misc seals.
Found up pipe Catalytic crap in the TD04 so searching for a new VF or TD05 16g now.
Grimspeed UP and Cross pipes (yikes)
11 STI TMIC found($250), hose needed.
Perrin BPV (free) acquired
06 STI struts($150) modded already ($120) to fit front hubs. with 1" lower springs!
06 STI Turbo back exhaust ($150)and Kartboy tall hangers for rear clearance.
Greddy OEM clutch and flywheel($500)

I know that is a mouthful, but if you have the motor all over the garage floor, you may as well put parts in it to make it new!

Just need a 6mt to fall from the sky now!
