Funk32's build
« on: May 23, 2011, 10:16:13 AM »
Hey everyone I figure I'd do a build post.

It all Started when I seen my first WRC rally on TV, ever since then I've wanted a Subaru. I was posted to CFB Gagetown and met a buddy who had a Subaru (99 impreza) and it sounded amazing and it was the first time I was able to get in a Subaru. time went on and another good friend of mine got a 05 wagon and did a lot of suspension work and felt amazing. So a few years gp by and then I get posted back to CFB Edmonton and deployed overseas. This was when I figured I could get my dream car, so I set out and started looking for a 04/05 STi. I started my search in the Edmonton area but then changed my search area to NS (where i was from before the army) and I found a car there are was able to get my family to pick it up for me. It was a 2004 Silver STi with 200,000km (wow a lot i know). Now it was time to gather parts and find a shop/tuner, I found one in NS near Peggy's cove. The shops name was B2 tuning and Bruce was the man to do all the work. little back ground on Bruce he use to work for RR and does an amazing job, him and Sunny know of each other but I don't think they worked together at RR.

I would like to thank:

Mark  @MSI
Ryan  @VEX

Sunny @Airboy Tuning

So now was time to look at what I wanted for HP goals, and yes I was one of those people that said "i want 500hp" well after a lot of research and talking with Bruce on real world goals I went with the 400hp goal. Off I went with all my research and goals in mind and started buying parts.
  During this Build we really only ran into 1 BIG issue and I credit Bruce for actually checking, we did not have enough valve clearance. This was my fault, while buying parts I over looked this, so I bought weisco pistons and went to MAPerfomace for Heads. there I got their stage 3 PnP (i know over kill) with +1mm valves and gsc stg 1 cams.

weisco pistons, the valve relief is pretty much for show only.

this is the spread sheet from Bruce's last run, making 395awhp and 382awtq

spread sheet by Funk32, on Flickr

Like I stated the Build and tune were done in NS, so I had to make the trip across canada in the middle of winter, so I had to make sure I had some good tires so I went with Nokian Hakkapeliitta 5's. The trip started well by that i mean the first 300kms. first my rear right ABS sensor went along with that went the DCCD, then there was a massive snow storm in NB/QUE/ONT by the time I made it to Ottawa the weather had cleared up but the roads still sucked. I got to about Hearst ONT and a fuel line backed off and started leaking under the intake manifold, I was able to limp her into Hearst Canadian tire (only place and was scared that they would screw it up) so they fixed it in about 3 hours. Off to Winnipeg where the GF is from, this is where I cracked my GTspec headers :( did my best to quick fix but it didnt help. about 1 hour out of Edmonton my front O2 sensor went (this is when i got scared for the motor) so i limped her back to Edmonton and contacted Vex who hooked me up with tomei EL headers and i busted a few knuckles getting that 3rd bolt undone.

since then I have installed a few extra bushings and parts
  TIC Rear Dif Mount Bushings  no longer needed as the TSSFAB rear subframe removes the diff mount plate
  TIC Rear Trailing Arm Bushings
  TIC Transmission x member Bushings
  ACPT Carbon Friber Driveshaft
  CUSCO Engine and Tranny Mounts
  Alcon BBK 365mm 6 piston front and 343mm 4 piston rear

Thanks guys, it was a scary ( scared for the car) drive back, and at points I didn't know if she would make it, but she is doing just fine right now.

Oh the Alcons are so nice.
How long ago did you install the OBX traling arms and lats? Any updates?
I must say I am tempted to pick some up.

I did my diff mount bushings a while ago, and it still had a lot of play in the diff.
I just swapped in the whole GT Spec rear diff mount the other night and its completely solid. I recommend it.

Nice.

You sure that's an EL header?



Also please tell me you coated or wrapped that bad boy...  if you didn't you should start shopping for a replacement.

That one might not be, but the one he's running by the end of the story is.

... this is where I cracled my GTspec headers :( did my best to quick fix but it didnt help. about 1 hour out of Edmonton my front O2 sensor went (this is when i got scared for the motor) so i limped her back to Edmonton and contacted Vex who hooked me up with tomei EL headers and i busted a few knuckles getting that 3rd bolt undone.

Yes at first I had coated gtspec UEL headers, which ended up cracking on the way cross canada. I now have Tomei EL headers that are wraped

where did it crack?

I have about 2000km's on my GT Spec's and although I just blew out the collector ---> Uppipe gasket, otherwise they have been just fine.  Going to inspect it tomorrow...

They cracked where all the tubes came together (collector) one of the tubes broke off completely and was just on there because there was no room for it to come out. I miss the deeper rumble but I'm ok with that.

This is a first I've heard of the GTspec/Tomei/etc UEL header cracking. Searching the forums you won't find too many results. This is strange.

Ya I didn't realize it was an issue until then. I have now been told by a few people (VEX, GTSpec, and my builder) that this is a problem. Big issue was very hot metal and then super cold weather along with bad roads, everything playing together caused the problem.

Looks good dude!
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.
