Hey everyone,

Thought I'd do a quick update & put up some pics.

**Update - Mod list**
Engine:
Stock EJ205 (DanTheMan's donk from his black SF)
New timing belt, adjusters, pulleys etc
New water pump while it was all apart
New FR & rear main seals
Rocker cover & coil seals
TD04L
Walbro GS342
Catless up-pipe/EGT delete
PSR intake, Perrin SFB, Logpro y-pipe etc
GFB Mach 2

Drivetrain:
Replacement gearbox
Exedy clutch & pressure plate
Kartboy linkage & bushes
New CV shafts

Suspension:
Pedders 8997/8998 struts
Pedders HD red springs (F+R)
Whiteline 20mm sway bars (F+R)
Whiteline HD rear mounts
Whiteline swaybar, control arm & trailing arm poly bushes
Whiteline HD alloy end links (F+R)

Brakes:
DBA T2 rotors (FR)
EBC Greenstuff pads
HEL Braided lines (F+R)

Interior/Stereo:
Alpine UTE-62EBT r
Clarion 4x100 amp (doors)
Alpine MRD-M500 monoblock 591 @ 2Ω (sub)
Sundown Audio SA-12 Dual 4Ω
2.2cu ft, 4" x 8.75" port @ 38Hz
DB Drive S3-65Cv2 Components (FR)
Rockford Forgate P152 (Rears)
STi leather shifter
Autometer ProComp boost guage
ODBII bluetooth with scan app for tablet/digital dash


Long story short, I've had the car for ~5 years & haven't done anything major to it. Have only done boost, brakes, swaybars, intake & a decent audio setup.
Stayed away from the performance side of things as it's my daily driver/tow vehicle & mileage was a bit high to be putting a strain on it.

A couple of months ago, the gearbox developed a bit of a whir which was coming from the transfer case. Sourced a new box from Dantheman who lives 5 mins away & got to take it for a drive before taking it out of the donor vehicle which was excellent. Being that he was going the 2.5L route, we did a deal for the engine, gearbox plus a turbo & catless up-pipe. We ripped all the gear out of his black foz in his driveway then bought it all home.

The new engine got a tidy up with all new belts, pulleys, tensioners, water pump, rocker cover gaskets, coil pack seals, hoses etc. An Exedy clutch & pressure plate was sourced & machined up the flywheel.

Here's a few quick pics of the engine which I'll be installing on Monday at my mates who runs an automotive engineering company. Shameless plug for the shop http://www.worksbywilson.com.au/. He's a master of everything from fabrication to engine builds to carbon fibre, so anyone on the Gold Coast that needs anything done, check them out.

I'll be using my intake manifold & front engine covers off my current engine but apart from that, it should all be a straight swap.

Will keep you posted on the progress, thanks for looking :thumbs:

So the heart transplant went quite smoothly.

The only issue I had was when I was about to start it for the first time, the starter wouldn't crank over. Thought, "holy crap, what have I missed?". Got underneath the car to check the starter connections & found I'd forgotten to connect the trigger wire spade plug! Connected it up & it fired up perfectly. Bled the air from the cooling system & took it for a blockie, damn it runs like a new car now!

Took me about 14 hrs from drive-in to drive-out. Had a mate help me for an hour or so to

Disassembly
Image

Intake manifold off
Image

Engine out
Image

Put the engine/box back in one piece. Didn't have a clutch alignment tool so my mate tightened the pressure plate bolts after it was aligned on the spline.
Image

And all done!

Nevermind my symbols on the breather hoses so I knew what goes where, used dots, lines & symbols when replacing the bottom end

Suspension has settled in now
