    And now this brings us to the part where I crave MORRREEEEE POWWWWWAAAA! Classic, I know.

    So I have now decided to increase power in the car, thus pushing it past the stock blocks "safe" capability. I am all about properly building my car, and not taking any shortcuts. This is why I decided to build the motor and not just go straight to the rotated turbo setup without properly strengthening the engine first.

    As of now, the time line looks like this:
    pull engine (done)
    disassemble engine (in the works)
    sell good shortblock/order new shortblock (February)
    install new shorthblock (March)
    break in motor (March)
    install rotated turbo setup (May/June)
    be very cool  :cool::cool: (Anytime after May/June)

    Shortblock Build list (subject to change)
    Outfront Closed Deck EJ25
    CP Pistons
    Manley H-tuff Rods
    King bearings
    ARP 2000 rod bolts and head studs

    Heads (keeping stock for now)
    deck
    refresh if needed

    This is all in an attempt to safely and consistently run a streetable 425-475 whp. The car will mainly be a summer DD with the occasional track session.

    The rotated turbo parts list looks as follows:

    Have:
    Holset Hx35 7 blade w/ 0.63 a/r hotside
    T1 billet fuel rails
    Injector Dynamics 1000cc top feed injectors
    ACT HD pressure plate w/ 6 puck clutch disk
    ACT streetlite flywheel
    Uppipe and Downpipe fabricational components

    To Be Purchased (subject to change)
    Tial BOV
    Tial 44mm EWG
    Turbo oil feed and drain lines
    Fuel lines
    FPR with fuel pressure gauge
    FMIC core (making own endtanks)
    Custom intercooler piping
    Make up/down pipes and rerouted EWG dump tube
    A/C delete????
    Custom intake
    IAT and MAP sensors to run speed density
    Reversed intake manifold
    TGV delete
    Every gasket ever
    Tigwerks engine mounts
    EL header (tigwerks or techworks)


    Here are some pics of some parts and the process so far:













    Obligatory standing in engine bay greaser photo







    I can hardly wait to make more progress on her. When I get my week off here coming up I will be going hard on tearing in down and getting it fully ready for the new block.

    Enjoy!!!

    Update:

    SHORTBLOCK HAS BEEN ORDERED !!! As you can tell im very excited.

    On the order list was:
    -Outfront Motorsports closed deck EJ25
    -Manley H-tuff rods
    -CP pistons (stock compression)
    -Sti crank
    -King bearings

    -Gates racing timing belt/pullies and water pump kit
    -JE head gaskets

    Should see it later this week and will be posting pics then.

          I got it from someone on these boards, in Winnipeg. Then had it sent away to Tims Turbo in the states and had it cleaned, balanced, rebuilt, with a new hotside (T3/3" vband, 0.63 a/r)

            Leland,
            Glad you found a hx35.
            I see you decided to switch hotsides. Doing so so you don't have to make a custom manifold?

            Interested in more info on the custom IC/End tanks...

            Looks like your build is going well..
            Have you thought about going with a better line of head studs from ARP or MAP?
            Also are those HG metal or composite?

            Mitch

              Hey Mitch,
              I switched hotsides because I wanted the smaller a/r ratio and also wanted the vband flange for the downpipe. I will still be making a custom up-pipe and downpipe for this setup and likely using the Tomei EL headers.

              I will be making my own custom routed IC piping for the rotated intake manifold and as of now, be fabbing/designing my own endtakes for the FMIC so that I have even more control over pipe routing.

              They are an MLS headgasket. Outfront Motorsports highly recommended them and uses them on all of their builds, so I trusted them on that choice.


              I actually have decided to go with the ARP 625+ headstuds, but potentially the MAP h11's. Ill see how I feel when that time comes, which is soon.

                      Where's the IC core coming from?

                      Also is there anything that you need to do to your built short block to ensure proper oiling?

                        I haven't fully decided on the core just yet, but im leaning towards a vibrant core. I spoke with some guys from Element Tuning and they had really good things to say about it and recommended it sooo....

                        Outfront said I shouldn't have any problems with my block with using the stock oil pump. So no, there isn't really anything special that I need to do. I will be installing a larger oil pan at some point but isn't really a necessity at all.

                              I placed the last few orders for parts over the past couple days here. One order of a bunch of random gaskets and seals, and just placed an order with MAP for some H11 head studs.

                                    I did a border run the other day and picked up a ton of shiny goodies. The short block is beautiful. I can't stop staring at the bloody thing.

                                    Pretty soon here I will start putting this thing back together!

                                          Ordered some Federal 595RS-R 255/40 r17's yesterday for the upcoming season and will be starting the engine assembly here in the next week or so after I pick up a proper Mac torque wrench. Should be fun!

                                            The tires came in the other day and look awesome. Should be a lot better than my old worn Azenis i was running.

                                            As for the motor. I have pretty much the whole long block assembled now, but just waiting on 2 seals that should be in my hands today, and on the block tomorrow. Then monday looks like the day when it will be shoved back into the car. I just PRAYYYYYYY that I don't have any leaks since there are so many sealing surfaces on these things. My water pump looked like it had maybe been banged around in shipping a bit since the gasket surface had little marks on it. So if something is going to leak, my money is on that. But lets see how it plays out  :P

                                            Ill post up some pics in the following days

                                              Man you must be super stoked to get her going! Youre definitely right about that sealant stuff too, sketchy stuff man. Hope it all works out! :D

                                                I should be firing it up within the next day or so here, maybe even tonight. But if I do have water pump sealing issues, its fairly easy to get at comparatively. But yes, Im wayyyyy to excited!

                                                  i primed the engine with oil today and that went really smoothly actually. So i think I will see if I have enough time to turn it over for the first time tomorrow!
