My slow STI
I stumbled across a Craigslist ad last week regarding a 2004 STI with 69,xxx miles last week for <$7k. I went and checked out the car within a couple hours of seeing the ad and decided to take a chance on it, knowing the engine was toast (0 compression on the passenger side. Engine turned over freely with no odd noises).


Conned AAA into towing it using my mother's membership


Yesterday I found a complete longblock, freshly rebuilt by Phoenix Performance, a shop out of PA that does endurance racing in their two STI rayscars. The engine is assembled using OE parts, except it has JE pistons, ARP head studs, and Power Enterprises head gaskets. For the price I got it for, it was a no-brainer. I also picked up a rebuilt Blouch Dom 1.5xtr turbo (49 lb/min, for those that are Subaru-tarded), for half retail. This turbo is good up to 400whp with bolt-ons on pump gas, and 475+ on e85. I'll be shooting for 350-ish on a conservative tune.
The rest of the supporting mods.....clutch, larger top mount, 850cc injectors, fuel pump, etc will be ordered within a week.

I look forward to eating shit.

That's why this will be getting a catch can or air-oil separator.
My WRX might drink 3/4-1 quart over 5,000 miles

Killer B oil pickup and windage tray ordered...as well as Power Enterprise 850cc injectors (actually flow 935cc at 3 bar)

A little encouragement I stumbled upon- http://www.iwsti.com/forums/power-br...-torque-2.html

Same setup, less the headers and up-pipe.

Placing the order tonight/tomorrow on the rest of my parts...just waiting on an email back from my vendor. Might actually have this thing up and going within a month!

Seems someone dropped and cracked the heads at some point. Also appears to have used vice grips on the cams


Both heads are toast
