Yep, bottom end finally let go at Collingrove. Main bearing No3. Rebuilt with ACL race bearings, the rest of the engine was in great condition so tune has been good. Almost 4 years at 242kw on stock bottom end, I guess it had to happen eventually. No more racing for me for a year or so at least... no fun when you're scared of breaking something and spending stupid amounts to get your daily back. Irony of it all is that it has no weak points left now. It's still a weapon and I'll still enjoy it but I've got other things and kids to spend time and money on now ;) No doubt it was an awesome journey, and I met a bunch of just as awesome people here on OzFoz and locally, so no regrets ;) I'll do it all again someday, but take the back seat for a while now. I do have plans to update this thread a bit and catch up on a few old and new builds, so I'll try not to be a stranger around here :thumbs:

Had even considered taking the Foz, MTB and Roadie over to Mt Beauty again but not sure if I'm up for the '3rd time lucky' just yet, lol.

WTF, just finished reading your whole thread whilst on a family holiday in Fiji. No bulls@#t man, your wife must be an absolute legend, if I spent the same kind of money on my cars as you have I would definitely be divorced! But I must say your thread is an absolute credit to you. I just bought a 2012 S-Edition, pretty happy with it just stock at the moment, but it's crying out for mods!

Haha, it's not a 'goodbye' dwee - just explaining why I'm not around too much anymore ;) Thanks for the kind words mate, I see yours is coming along well!

Thanks Berjo... that's a hell of a lot of reading mate! Yep, my wife has been pretty damn understanding about all the time, effort, and money that's gone into the build and repairs, but fair to say we're both now agreed that it's probably enough after this last rebuild. You're off to a good start with the S-Edition - stop reading now, or prepare to spend lots :ok:

It is a shame the racing is over for now as I was on track for some serious PB breaking at Collingrove when the bottom end went - I was finally looking good to crack the 34sec mark, my life's ambition in the heavy SH Foz :twisted: More on that later...

is your battery cover the same exact one for the wrx/sti? if so, how did you get it to line up so well against the front beam there? did you have to modify the cover? is the rear clip, back by the fuse box, clipped in there?

thanks!

and sorry to hear the motor news. im a noob catching up, but enjoying reading through on yours!!
