FT: 04 Subaru WRX wagon roller for 2.3 long block

I have a 2004 WRX wagon (2.0L EJ205 with TD04 turbo) that I bought running from a friend to rallycross. Sounded like a burned up exhaust valve due to aftermarket mapping. I pulled the engine, ripped some stuff off it and forgot about it. Car sat outside for a year, now it's in a garage. Still have a...

Re: My '89 XR4Ti thread

Found this thread by doing a search on "water injection". I was thinking that adding a meth/water injection sprayer between the turbo and TB would eliminate the need for an FMIC, on a stock motor. If that's true, I was thinking it should be pretty easy to drill/tap a fitting for the sprayer, hookin...

I read back, this is an XD-16? (w/ LC1?) What is the error number?

Cool

It would be interesting to see the old and new VE tables next to each other in 3d mode

Re: Mods to achieve 400+ whp?

Very nice :) I too "suffer" with a high hp daily driver. The remarks from uninitiated passengers usually put things in perspective for a brief moment. The stark contrast between the few and the many. Most people do up a barely streetable car once in their life then move on to the comforts of a separ...

Re: first merkur, what to look for

I personally think $1,200 is a little much, especially since a sitting car can hide many surprises. I think all Merkurs should be priced higher and underselling them only worsens this problem. On the hand, in this market you can get a lot more for your buck. Don't overlook bottom dollar prices becau...

Re: Mods to achieve 400+ whp?

Yeah, 400-500 wheel HP (turbo) is not much fun on the street. I personally wouldn't even think about trying it with a RWD. The symphony of noises.. whine from the upgraded gears, chatter from the puck clutch, intermittent artillery sounds from the wastegate dump tube, the constant deafening rumble a...

Re: My '89 XR4Ti thread

Quick update: Pistons looked alright with the scope, couldn't get it around enough to see the chambers. The consensus is the noise is a single rod bearing starting to fail. Oil pressure normal. Regardless the engine is coming out to get refreshed as I have many birds to kill here as a winter project...

Re: Bottom end strength on a turbo block

Thanks Khan

No need to dig thru receipts. I'm in the planning stages for a winter project, weighing my options and only looking for approximate costs.
