Spencer's Legacy Turbo *New Pics Page 17*

Post by smh0101 » Sun Mar 23, 2008 9:41 pm

2014 Photo update page 17

Okay, so Dave created these as a test run, so, I'm in!

My car:

1992 White Legacy Sport Sedan
Factory 5mt
217,XXX miles

Shape: okay, not totally messed up, but not nearly as clean as my old ride.


-----------------------

Phase 1: Restoring to Original and Interior Swap

Steps:

1: Fix Some Exterior Stuff

The previous owner messed up the front bumper to install a set of crappy fog lights.

So fixed it by prying the lip back into place.

Done

They had also ghetto rigged an intake, they flipped the airbox around and exposed the filter to make a cold (well, hot) air intake.

Fixed, thank you wrecked parts car.

But then some issues with the MAF getting wet because it sucked through a liner-less fender.

Fixed with a 90* Elbow out of the engine bay.

Pics to come

Had to replace the grill because they painted it flat black... sooo ghey.

Done.

Then the interior swap.

ALL the stuff from my 93 SS went/will go into the 92.

So far the seats, door panels and all the plastics have been replaced. Soo much better

The stereo got redone... The old original one had a short so, it would sometimes work... But not always.

So in went the WRX 6 disc!

And the Alpine Type Rs...

Much improved.

I still have to swap the dash... but that will be whenever I'm not being lazy!








Then the Tranny broke, dammit... So I had to swap that.

Then the wiring that the PO ghetto rigged went all to hell... I had to fix that.

So right now I'm in the Restoration stage. But I'm also going to intercool it and do the suspension/brakes.

I'm probably going to pick up my GC Coilover springs today then I have to get the AGXs.

I'll update later with a build list.

Thanks for reading.

-Spencer

SO Update... I got the ej22t home... and on a stand...

AND I bought a Phase 1 DOHC 2.5L Block for $100... YAY!!

I just realized I never told you guys what I plan on for a build...

I was thinking...

22t block
2.5 Phase 1 Crank and Rods... = 2.35l Stroker
ej20k heads and mani (same mani as a 20g)
vf12 turbo... i know its small on the list of turbos... But it will give me better low end
Higher Compression Wiseco Pistons... probably 9.5:1
Intercooler... MAYBE a stealthy front mount... but most likely just a top mount.

9.5:1 compression + boost + more displacement sounds like it will be nice.

Havent updated this for awhile...

Well, the motor that was in the car flipped out and blew the rings on cylinder #2...

SO she sat... and sat.... and sat.... Then I swapped the motor out of my 93 in... Here is a shitty pic of here sitting, ahem, rotting, in the driveway....

http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o61/ ... 0_0539.jpg

Well, I did the swap all my myslef, first time...

It started, ran, well kinda... there was a problem...

I found out the headgaskets on that motor were shot...

So Andy helped me pull the motor, fix the head gaskets and get her goin again...

So i drove her for awhile, stock, and then figured what the hell, lets throw my vf10 and WRX TMIC on...


TO BE CONTINUED... with pics ;)

So the engine build has changed a little bit... basically gotten somewhat cheaper... and pretty much just as powerful, and I've decided to do it in two stages....

I've changed what I'm going to use for a block... I'm not going to abandon the dreams of a closed deck 2.35, however, for the time being, with the first build, in this car, I'm considering an ej257 shortblock...

:-o how fast will the vf10 spool with that much more displacement... it was made for a 2.0L :lol:

The current plan is as follows...

ej257 block... brand new, stock internals.
93-96 WRX ej20g Heads... Bucket w/ HLAs
Cometic or Cosworth Headgaskets
98 LGT Intake Manifold w/ 22t electrics.
vf10 turbo (to start with... will change)
'06 TMIC


What I have so far...
vf10
'06 TMIC
440cc injectors
brand new STi rods, bearings, pistons, rings
93 WRX Heads

I know I must be missing something but the total cost so far is.... $250 :D

I still need...
Oil Pump
Water Pump
Timing Belt
Timing Gears
block halves
tensioner
intake and head gaskets, front/rear main seals
heads hot tanked

I have a good start... and my goal is to be done with stage one and in the car by spring break... and then finish stage two by summer.

And just an update...

Things are going... interesting...

Selling the 20g heads to get some ej25d heads... Keeping the 20g manifold. Because I'm using it...

And getting a 2.5l block with STi Rods and CP Pistons.

Oh and a vf39 on the way. :twisted:

Haha, you think you have bigger dreams lol

You dont know the long term setup.

Okay so for an update!!!

Yes I sold my 2.2. But hopefully as soon as my graduation party rolls around I'll have the cash to by my 2.5 block.

I have my heads, intake manifold, injectors, basically everything but head gaskets and a block.

The final build will be as follows. And hopefully pretty soon. Before WCSS11

2.5L w/ STi Rods and CP Pistons
98 LGT DOHC Heads PnP
480cc injectors until I can find a set of cheap 565s
IHI vf24 (sickest lil guy lol) running 20psi

Heres an update and a teaser pic.

So the engine is going to start being built.

It will be the same as the last post...

Other than just engine stuff. I've finally re-installed (properly this time) my Infinity Amp and Alpine speakers. I'm waiting on a deck.

We finally got my 93 black dash in and the rest of m 93 interior.

So now its just time for the engine...

Heres the teaser pic
