Well as some of you may know my 09 WRX suffered the dreaded rod knock and bearing failure. After approaching Subaru they would not provide me with warranty because they could tell the vehicle had been previously modified.
So at 60,000 kms that leaves me with new (ish) car with a screwed engine!... I thought I would start this thread as I begin to rebuild the engine and hopefully I can count on the expertise of people on this forum to answer any questions I may have along the way.
Plans for the car are as follows:...
EJ255 Heads (assuming mine are still in good condition)
Aftermarket TMIC or FMIC
Open source tune
Stage 2 clutch (exedy / ACT)
Anyone see fault in my plans thus far???
I would prefer not to rebuild the full engine myself and having a prebuilt shortblock should reduce the risk of possible failures.
Many pictures to come!
