Project 350

Ok here it goes the idea was to take my wrx off the road and achieve 350+bhp from bolt on mods by my 21st.. so on this thread ill take you through day by day what i've done, hopefully to show people if it works and so you can laugh when i blow it up or break/round off bolts and it will hopefully make for an interesting read...

Todays update

Stripped the car tonight to get to various bits and sort out my misfire by removing the coil packs finding the broken one and replacing it. First job was to remove the top mount by the three bolts retaining it then disconnecting the various samco below. Next i removed the airbox pipework and resonator giving much more room. When removing the resonator ive broke the little plastic pipe on the bottom whioch connects to the boost solenoid anyone know if this is important? Anyway onto some rusted bolts now so i gave em a good half hour soak in wd40 to free em off then off came the turbo heatshield which revealed a TD05 saves me some money on a turbo.Then i could get to the bolts of the downpipe bottom bolts off first and let the exhaust hang and then the top rather stiff bolts. Of annoyance tonight was having to remove the washer bottle and battery to get into the coilpacks which just unscrew. All in all a pretty dull start but the toys are yet to come and i had to go for a haircut so got "pulled off the job" so to speak...

pics to follow

dom be careful with the turbo bolts/studs when ya change the downpipe i know some ppl whos had to warm em up to undo em though ive done 3 downpipes without any trouble though these have been 98 onwards cars-lets hope if yours has had another turbo on they aint gone mad with the bolts coz they are prone to snapping.

afternoon update well its been a long hung over shift today but its on discovered one of my turbo bolts was already sheared ill sort that out later in the week 8) took around 3 hours of wd40 and heating to get the turbo bolts out, you also need to unbolt it from the gearbox and the centre section and there is a small bolt at back then it drops, sounds easy but on an older car like mine its a bar steward heres some pics of the old pipe that came off to give you an idea for comparison and the new 3" pipe installed.... please bear in mind im no mechanic i put sell and install electric fence, audio entry, auto gates and barriers for a living









next up is my front mount intercooler which i am assured will arrive between monday and wednesday..... right ladies and gents im off on the piss round hudds
