Speclist: :)

Engine:
2.5 block
cosworth rods
Forged pistons
Headers... (not sure about the specs)
Inverted inlet manifold
FMIC
Headers with heatwrap
3" turboback exhaust
Garrett GT3076 .82 turbo
Fuelpressure regulator
850cc injectors
Twinflow fuelrails
Airfilter under the hoodscoop
Gems Ecu

Complete 04 sti driveline
6 speed with DCCD
DCCDPro manual controller
Brembos
etc...

This is the parts I remember at the moment.
The swap has taken a little longer than planned because they started the first engine with wrong map. BANG!!! Bent one of the rods :(
Had to build me a new one. Started it on friday, no problems :D
Getting it back this week. Can`t wait to see the dyno result. :icon_cool:
Diden`t get the airfilterbox right so went with a open filter on the new engine. :)

open filter, as in no filter to the turbo? If so, that's a really bad idea, especially on a new motor.

I like those pulleys. where are those from?

I diden`t mean we are not going to use a airfilter. Just my bad english. Using a performance airfilter like that in the picture. Not sure about the pulleys. I will post a complete speclist when the car is done. :icon_biggrin:

322hp at the wheels.
397hp and 510nm in the engine.
At only 1.2bar boost! :biggrin:

They said I could get about 450hp with alcohol, but I think this will do for a while.

Wow. Sick build. I loved the idea of air filter under the scoop. Did you put the cone under it then, or are you still working on a box?

if the turbo inlet is facing forward, you really dont want to do this.

The old WRC cars angles the inlet up and back toward the hood scoop hole; this is the way to do it. If you can't do something like this (it will take a sump pump on the turbo to do it right, again, a la WRC), then I'd recommend not doing it. Why? The sharp bend creates a MASSIVE pressure drop. The straighter the better when it comes to air inlets.

anyhew, congrats on the #'s. That's a cool project for sure!

In the photo it does look like he has the inlet facing rear and up.
Can you show us a vertical shot of the engine bay awosubaru?

And what's an inverted intake manifold?
Edit: Ahh, I see. The intake manifold is facing forward (rotated). I really want to see a top-down shot of this now, especially how the turbo connects to the inlet and IC piping.
