Nico,

Can you elaborate on what you did to the shifter? I see you have upgraded bushing in the joint and pivot on the lever, but is there anything else you changed?

Nico,

instead of rubber or plastic I made brass so copy original's, then that busing I pressed in was the same size as the rear control arms from svx pillow ball and made bushing to take the slack for bolt like stock.

the tricky part is the pillow ball with race and cup to fit in the lower section of leaver. clip to hold it all together

many parts have come in for the motor now its time to dig a ej22t block out and build it while I wait for paint work.

Wossner Made in Germany forged 22B pistons and connecting rods, STD size pistons means no messing around with my ej22t block & machine shop 👌.... I should have just built all my ej22T this way :rolleyes:


Image


ACL racing STD size bearings not race version, STi spec-c oil cooler adapter, proper water pump with single port and old school timing belt tensioner from the ej22t aka the motorsports racing tensioner.


Image



aurora asm-10T military aviation spec front control arm spherical bearings, this will all me to run longer aka normal Subaru length CV axles and also camber. I won't need to modify the front crossmember to except XT6 front control arms.


Image



lots of mess 🙆‍♂️

This reminds me of those "how to draw a thing" memes where it's just first draw a circle, then make a portrait.

Here's a table of parts, bam now we have a rad car. lol.

Thank goodness you're better at documenting things that a lot of people.

I think the reason people usually go with oversize pistons is the cylinders sometimes aren't perfectly round after time. They become slightly ovaled and the boring out brings them back to basically perfect again.

That's cool you can use BRZ parts :)

Regarding the shifter, I've been happy with mine. I used TiC's poly bushings on everything and it's very solid feeling.

its like a smorgasbord in here of parts 😂

👏👏 the shifter makes the car feel so much better when you stiffen it up, so much more enjoyment for sure.









so since quarantine I've been busy in the shop.



picked up a Full Race twin scroll headers to match's my sedan set up

Image



Borge Warner EFR 7163 takes care of the turbo with internal gated & bov 

Image





some 4 pot / 2 pot action to match the sedan set up, also got stainless steel pistons made up front and rear for thermal and rust prevention

Image



Image



got a personal specific torque plate made for my EJ22T blocks, proper thickness of the head was used so it match torque strengthens 

Image



Image



torque plate results, yes it makes a difference for sure

Image



Image



time to assemble the wagon engine, the the spare motor for the sedan or the wagon lol 

Image



Image



Image



what its going to look like 

Image

Image



can't have a new motor with out a good transmission, so I took apart my spare STi 6mt to change some synchros so its smooth like butter.

what we have here is a option that I can take advantage of

18:0 GL-10 steering ratio

Re: 86 Subaru Leone

Post by NICO »

today was exciting !. A 2004 Subaru STi Steering rack showed up, its time to install this into my old school 80s subaru engine cross member

Image

Image




so here is the issue, the lines need to be a little bit longer and then you move the bracket over to where the fancy factory sticker is.

Image

Image




take the bracket off and move the lines out the way, so there we have it, it fits right in the spot.

Image




also we have to make it look original that's how I roll, sometimes lol !!
with the same bracket I cut out the U shape a little more, this way I can bolt it up like stock. then I flipped the bracket around so I can put the bolt on the top, this makes it easier to install.
you have to bend the lines into place for a little length which you can do by hand.

Image

Image


Ps: you have to enlarge the holes on the crossmember beforehand, and then cut the pocket out on the opposing side so the lines can stick out

Image




what I gained from doing this

18:0 GL-10 Steering ratio to a impressive 15:1 04 STi Ratio, that's 4 ratios quicker. id say that's more impressive then everyone only upgrading from 15:0 to 13:0 (3 ratios )

I knew I couldn't have been the only one to notice that.

Car is looking good, NICO. Of course the STi rack bolts right in to the GL10 crossmember (mostly).
