Ive watched a bit here and there.

It took literally 30 minutes to take the entire exhaust, turbo, and mani off. High mount has its perks.

The subaru on the other hand.... well, its not that bad, but not 30 minutes.

the lgt vf40 has a completely different compressor housing so it wouldn't bolt in.
the others, yeah, all would interchange. and you can get them for 250-350 usually, really not bad
the vf40 has proven to be hands down the worst, most unreliable turbo in the subaru line up LOL

Your right, I forgot, it has that 90 degree turned up 2 bolt flange for the TMIC.


So i could just saw it off each track day and weld it back on before I pack up.

Whats your choice of trubo for that motor without getting exotic? VF52? I just turned 100k on it. Not sure if I can swing an upgrade or if ill just rebearing the vf40 here soon.

Edit: this makes me genuinely curious what v band torque capacity is.

Seriosuly, a flood of chaotic ideas coursed through my mind when I read that. not the above edit.

Vband the driveshaft, v band the race seat, v band the dash.

<p>v-band driveshaft sounds like a bad idea, because of the direction of the torque on it.</p><p>Why not just use velcro for everything.</p>

<p>When you do the engine build will you please take a million pictures and how you do everything? I'm still researching my build, and I also want to rebuild my truck engine this winter, and the inside of an engine is foreign to me.</p>

Its pretty straight forward, but sure. I remember my first build, I was nervous.

Your not going to want to follow mine. Mike and I are taking next tuesday or wednesday off, were going to start at 6am and have it done and running by the afternoon, thats the plan anyway, a quickie if you will. We arnt touching the head because it has already been gone through, the PtW is what it is, Ill set ring gap obviously. Unless there is something egregious on the journals, theyre not getting turned down or polished, so bearing clearance if anything will be a little on the large side with 150k on the crank. Not a terrible thing. No ridge in the bore, but ill throw a snap gauge at it just to make sure they arnt taper ovaled. Ill check crank end play because its easy and important. There are decent writes ups somewhere I would urge you to follow.

Ive found enough people that have those ebay rods that had the big end checked for roundness and diameter and they were all in spec. Enough to make me comfortable.

But Im always a pic *****, so there will be pics.
