    here is the pistons I made and got wrinkle red powder coated my valve covers



    so after trying to rebuild my steering rack it seems that seals are impossible to source so !



    The old school Subaru guys are going to find this one interesting !

    1991-04 New age Subaru Steering rack

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

    18:0 GL-10 steering ratio
    15:1 STI 2004 steering ratio ( my new rack is on the way 😁✌️)

    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








    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.








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






    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.






    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






    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 )

    Nice find with the rack! Chould definately make a big difference One of the things I made to my rallycar that made a huge difference in feel was a quicker steering rack Got around 2.1 turns from lock to lock now, like night and day compared to stock Legacy Turbo rack

    well the sedan is out of storage and ready to get the upgrade steering rack




    half of the wagon came home lol, guess its time to install stuff










    so we know the motor and transmission fit but this little turbo has a issue, had a feeling this was going to happen but there is a fix :banana:. Borger Warner makes a shorter wastegate and bracket for this very reason

    Goodridge brake lines made up in all SS including the bolts

    found a original front lip in Japan so it looks like the sedan







    was time to take care of the intercooler and like the sedan I got a nice BELL intercooler made up













    the bumper plastic isn't bolted up that's why it sits like that or else it will sit straight, I have a brand new skin coming in

    got the turbo sorted out so the wastegate won't hit the wall








    SS feed lines and fittings so never rust




    got my PROvent 200 all set up so it can catch all the oil






    also add the radiator cap on the radiator like the factory had it so its clean and works flawlessly





    2 x 12" opal fans made in Italy, the driver side has a bigger HD motor then the slim passenger side

    these Subarus don't really have a proper toe adjustment so I came up with a heim joint with threads so I can adjust the Alignment much easier, and its all made out of SS so it will never rust

    original subaru leone




    Version 1 : hard to adjust live on the alignment rack.




    Ver II perfection ! ;)













    made this long time ago for the bushings in the arms now the wagon will have all pillow ball heim joint ride like the sedan

    ordered up the aluminum tubes for the intercooler and radiator pipes



    first step was get the radiator pipes made up, lower & up pipes for both sedan and wagon




    more alignment goodnesses stuff in SS, radial rod fully adjustable for caster & centering the hub under the body of the car.
