One would think.. if you have to weld your head back together.. that its time to put down the tools and back away.

Since my buddy got a new STI, i've become a fan.

I'm slightly depressed, as I have spent quite a bit of money and nothing to show for it....all my parts are in transit.

Gzzz... wonder if they were using a vice grip to hold the cam to get the cam bolt out and it broke the head with the force applied on it by the vicegrip? Either way, that's nuts.

Got a few treats in the mail today:




The next obstacle is deleting the exhaust side avcs...which isn't really difficult. The only part I don't have currently are the cam seals. The cams, cam gears, and valve covers, I already have.
I hate waiting for parts...

Edit: Beechmont Subaru had the cam seals in stock!

Progress:


Deleted exhaust AVCS, as the 2004 ecu only supports intake AVCS. Swapped exhaust cams to 04-07 cams and checked valve lash. All in spec.


Also mocked up the parallel fuel lines...some trimming likely needed, but that's what I expected.



We weren't able to do much more as I didn't think about needing the 04-07 intake cam gear (thought we could use the 2012). No big deal, as I need to pickup 04-07 cam gear bolts from Subaru, as the 08+ bolts are too long to work with 04-07 cam gears.

The cam gears will be installed Tuesday night and the engine will hopefully get dropped in as well that night. Startup is possible, but I'm foreseeing that taking place this Saturday evening.

They're a bit difficult to work on because of their design. Nothing is easy to do in the car besides fluid changes.

serious question, where do the plugs and coils go? since the front has the timing assembly, up side of the head is injectors and intake

Center of the valve covers, on the sides, which would technically be the top of the engine if it wasn't a flat 4.
Changing those suck when the engine is in the car.

Killer B Oil pickup and tray installed:



Timing belt and covers are all back on. Clutch and flywheel will be bolted on Saturday and hopefully it will get started up as well.
