Just bought a 2002 WRX Wagon from my brother. I've known this car since 60k miles. It's been well cared for. Engine went a while back and my brother decided to do a STI EJ257/EJ20 hybrid.
Ordered a new from Subaru EJ257 short block, had 2.0 heads CNCd and built it up with tons of upgrades. Cometic Super Pro gasket set, Gates racing kevlar timing set, STI high flow oil and water pumps, ARP stud kit, SPEC Stage 1 clutch kit, full stainless headers, up and down pipe and full catless exhaust and cold air intake.
He left the rest stock EJ20 including all fuel, ignition, cams, etc... for reliability and because he was aiming to build a solid bottom end and was planning to get into the rest later.
Car runs great. AFR runs 14.7:1 normally. Life is good, but now that I have it I want to see a few things through. Seems there is a lot of fine tuning I can do to optimize this hybrid build using a Tactrix cable and RomRaider. Need to get rid of a few things in ECU like programming out the EGT and rear O2 sensor. Want to flash an optimized map for this kind of build.
