    �� wagon life, lots of free time to go crazy now #virusLife lol










    so since quarantine I've been busy in the shop.



    picked up a Full Race twin scroll headers to match's my sedan set up





    Borge Warner EFR 7163 takes care of the turbo with internal gated & bov*







    some 4 pot / 2 pot action to match the sedan set up, also got stainless steel pistons made up front and rear for thermal and rust prevention









    got a personal specific torque plate made for my EJ22T blocks,*proper thickness of the head was used so it*match torque strengthens*









    torque plate results, yes it makes a difference for sure

    Lovely stuff.

    Your headers are going to crack though, you need an expansion section or slip joint between both sides to allow them to flex.

    As the engine warms up and expands, the distance between the exhaust flanges on both sides grows, that stresses the exhaust system if you dont allow for some flex in the pipework.

    That's why you have a cambelt tensioner that allows for growth and also why you need to set your cam timing and zero your AVCS system when the engine is hot if you want to be accurate.

    I understand what you are say but not all headers are created equally, that's steam pipe right there we are talking 80lbs of super thick walled headers they don't expand and shrink like the cheap ones you see on the internet. I have these headers on my sedan for 5 years now they haven't broken, give the company a look these are not cheap headers at all if you want the best here they are. https://www.full-race.com/about-us/













    all primed up and ready for the single stage white paint job to match my sedan







    here is the pistons I made and got wrinkle red powder coated my valve covers



    so after trying to rebuild my steering rack it seems that seals are impossible to source so !



    The old school Subaru guys are going to find this one interesting !

    1986-93 GL-10 TURBO engine Crossmember
    1991-04 New age Subaru Steering rack

    what we have here is a option that I can take advantage of

    18:0 GL-10 steering ratio
    15:1 STI 2004 steering ratio ( my new rack is on the way ��✌️)

    today was exciting !. A 2004 Subaru STi Steering rack showed up, its time to install this into my old school 80s subaru engine cross member








    so here is the issue, the lines need to be a little bit longer and then you move the bracket over to where the fancy factory sticker is.








    take the bracket off and move the lines out the way, so there we have it, it fits right in the spot.






    also we have to make it look original that's how I roll, sometimes lol !!
    with the same bracket I cut out the U shape a little more, this way I can bolt it up like stock. then I flipped the bracket around so I can put the bolt on the top, this makes it easier to install.
    you have to bend the lines into place for a little length which you can do by hand.






    Ps: you have to enlarge the holes on the crossmember beforehand, and then cut the pocket out on the opposing side so the lines can stick out






    what I gained from doing this

    18:0 GL-10 Steering ratio to a impressive 15:1 04 STi Ratio, that's 4 ratios quicker. id say that's more impressive then everyone only upgrading from 15:0 to 13:0 (3 ratios )

    well the sedan is out of storage and ready to get the upgrade steering rack




    half of the wagon came home lol, guess its time to install stuff










    so we know the motor and transmission fit but this little turbo has a issue, had a feeling this was going to happen but there is a fix :banana:. Borger Warner makes a shorter wastegate and bracket for this very reason
