My subaru 1302 build thread

Hi, my car should be coming out of paint today or tomorrow and within the next two months will be going together. I have all the parts to complete the car but I'm getting married and with the honeymoon won't be home to work on it for about 3 weeks in august. Anyway, I'll update with pics here when I can.

Here are some in the paint shop. The really dark color you see is the ~2004 VW color platinum grey with no clear coat yet. Its quite amazing how it turned out since in certain light it looks black, like in the pic, but you move you angle a little bit and it goes to a light grey/silver.

Engine: EJ20 turbo, Early legacy closed deck block, td05h-16g turbo, 550cc injectors that'll be bumped up to about 630-650 with higher fuel pressure

ECU: Using the Subaru harness and have an ECU out of an 96 STi that will run my engine ok. I'll use that to get everything working and then I have an APEXI Power FC with datalogit that plugs right in to my harness. It is a complete standalone fully programmable system. I want to be able to tweak

Pedal setup: ? stock pedals? Cable running to the throttle just like the VW. I imagine I'll have to do some fiddling to get wide open throttle.

Tranny: Built type 1 with ZF LSD. I will drive this car hard but won't be abusing the gearbox. I am confident this box will stand up for many miles.

944 CV joints, currently running on stock beetle axles until I can find a set of the 'short' 944 axles.



I just got the car back home and the paint looks amazing. When I get back home from work (friday) I'll take some pics and post. It saddens me it will sit for the next month but I suppose getting married and honeymoon take priority.

I think the pictures got small because you've got them at photobucket too large. If you save smaller pictures on photobucket they'll come up just fine on here.

Did you do all the prep work and body work before the paint job?
I was wondering of you thought about using MegaSquirt for your engine EFI management. Take a look if you haven't yet.

I haven't used it yet, but want to for my volvo 240 and future subaru project.

Hay Guys, I want very much to use the MegaSquirt system. I have a second type IV setup I would like to use the 1.7 intakes injection with. Although my throttle body will be from a 5.0. Saving some money on the EFI system sounds very nice. My heads are going to be totally re-worked hopefully to support a 2.7.

Sorry guys I've been super busy, I'll post some more pics, when I get home next week. I've got the brakes/susp, wiring and dash mostly done. Engine goes in next, then on to all the other small stuff.

I thought about using megasquirt but there hasn't been much success using it on subaru turbo engines. I have the Apexi Power FC which apparently works very well. I would like to megasquirt something but would rather do it on a low performance daily driver to gain more efi experience then to use it on a hi-po engine.

I cut a bit out of the firewall to fit the turbo. The IC sits directly overtop of the engine. I shortened the decklid mounts so the intercooler would fit. Once its installed, hopefully next weekend, I'll put some pics up. The radiator is up front, there should be pics of the cooling setup when I was mocking it up in the Engines-Subaru- section.

Here is one pic, this is when it first came to my house. More is done since then but I can't access the pics right now for some reason.

With these fenders on it makes the 245's on the back look small!

Couple more pics. Work is progressing slowly now that I'm married, weird. :lol:

Axles with Porsche 944 cv's installed, along with kafer brace. Needs bigger tires!!


Got the dash figured out, just needs a clean. Not 100% on where the cd player will go. Its secondary, though under the dash in a box or something. I wanted the interior to be simple on this car, and functional. Nothing flashy just black. Have matching rear seat cover and speaker shelf, along with black carpet and headliner.


Why is the seat in? Too sit in and make driving noises of course.

Progress pics. I got it running last week. Now I'm really itching since its so close to driving. Although I think its going to snow in the next few days so it might get finished and then have to sit until May.
