Probably DIY - we'll see how I go. The rear is just a centre, I'll swap my gears onto it.

It's definitely a diy I'd like to achieve :)
Luckily the 6mt front diff is said to be somewhat easier than 5mt.
Iirc an inch lb tq wrench, mag base dial throwout indicator and diy sun gear tools (or block of wood and a hammer) are the specialised tools reqd...

Don't suppose you ever worked out what the duration and lift was for the stock Legacy heads?

Figured as much, just trying to justify whether some 26# are the way to go or whether its worth just dumping in some 272's

Don't go extreme cams - it's not really worth it unless you're building a high end track car. Much better for streetability to go mid-end.

My thoughts exactly. Others have just said if going aftermarket I might as well go straight for 272's but the heads flow will surely be the restriction well before a set of mild aftermarket cams.

Update time!

Extra LEDs for backlighting in the cluster:

Image

Testing the OLED display in the cluster:

Image

Testing the opening ceremony:

Image

Testing and working in the car:

Image


Gratuitous internal shot, damn it's looking good:
Image

And outside:
Image

Picked up a Navigation cubby and test fit my 7" screen:

Image

Fits perfectly - I'll use this instead.

Of course, This means I need a new/different clock, so I need to design one:

Image

The Dash isn't working very well ATM, making sense of the pulses is far harder than I had anticipated, so I have ordered a CAN module, which is also ideal because I can do the clock functions.

Picked up a K2 gear red stitched rear mat from yahoo auctions for about $180 - really makes the rear look great.
Image

Now, time to make that power module. Test fit the components in a box:
Image

Wire it up:
Image

Image

Into the box:
Image

Sadly, in testing I realised I've used AC relays - They only disconnect when the load is at 0v - so they don't work. I've ordered a bunch of MOSFETs to do this instead, as well as some prototype board to mount them on.

Time to design a mount for the screen and the pi, etc.
Image

Image
Image
Image

Test fit.. oops, it's .5-1mm too wide on both sides. Time to pickup the dremel again.
Image
Image

Much better, this is looking like it will fit in the car:
Image

Today I picked up some new tyres, Yokomaha Advan Neova AD08R 235/40/18
Image

Then I picked up an outback bonnet:
Image

And installed it!
Image

Stay tuned for more exciting updates.. at some point :)

Runs very well! Still not ready to fix the power issue due to other priorities, it's 80% IDC at peak currently at 12psi. Gradually working my way down a long to do list of sorting out all the niggly things.

Sen-sat-ion-al. Just went through all 17 pages. Fantastic stuff! The custom dash cluster, the exposed intercooler, the JDM bar, the electronics work, the refurbished Brembos and your son's awesome bunk bed house thing. All solid, solid work. Well done! :good:

Out of personal / selfish curiosity, may I ask how difficult the bonnet swap was and what the procedure is?
I got this plan. It's called 'Save Ass'. And the way it works is this - I slip outta one of these windows and I run like a bastard!

The bonnet swap is literally just undoing 4 (I think) bolts, lifting the bonnet off, lifting the new bonnet on, then doing up the bolts again.

Been busy with family, but have done some things with the car...

First I had to fix my daily - The timing belt tensioner broke and bent all my intake valves - https://imgur.com/a/tsPKE

Added some STi bracing:
Image

Bought a turbosmart FPR 1200
Image

.. and fitted it.
Image

This helped, but sadly didn't fix my fuelling issue.

So I tested:
Image

and tested:
Image

I even bypassed the hardline:
Image

I was also able to borrow a known good fuel basket with a walbro 460 - same issue, so I can eliminate the fuel pump.

I spent 12 hours detailing the car with a friend - and removed the half bumper for now:
Image
Image

I finally tracked down the oil leak: it's the AVCS cam gears. I stripped off the covers and ran it without accessories just idling and could clearly see the issue:
Image
Image

I've replaced the two worst ones (on the drivers side) but the other two appear to be leaking as well, so I'll have to do it again.

I put on the battery and ABS cover I've had in the garage for ages - it really makes it look much better.
Image

Then I went to Winton for the MCM Meet and track cruise day:
Image
Image
Image
Image

I also made a video of the day at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufhLOompK8c

Some wheeling and dealing and I also picked up some whiteline lateral arms which will allow me to fix my toe:
Image

I managed to get half of them on, I'll get the other half on tomorrow:
