Jono's MY07 STi - Rebuild Edition

Postby jonoe » Tue Nov 07, 2017 8:52 pm

For some reason, I cant add to my original build thread, so here is a shiny new one!

After suspecting that the car was down on one cylinder, i finally bit the bullet and had a leakdown test performed. The results confirmed my suspicion: Cyl 1-3 10-12% leakdown, Cyl 4 78% leakdown.

Off to top torque I went to have the engine pulled down and assessed.

Ahh, the old busted ringland trick!

Thankfully there was no damage to the block or heads, so the decision was made to rebuild the original motor.

The list:
Bore and hone block.
Re condition cylinder heads.
Grind crankshaft.
Mahle 2618 forged pistons
Manley H tuff rods
Arp head studs
XP performance conrod bearings
XP performance main bearings
Mlsr head gasket
Avo silicone intake
Tgv delete
Air pump delete
Killer B oil pickup
As well as replace oil and water pumps, timing belt etc.

A week and a half after picking it up, the engine is run in and has had its 1000km service. I am currently waiting on a tune, and should be out and about on cruises again soon!

I also got bored while recovering from surgery, so I decided to pull the headlights out and paint the chrome surrounds graphite grey. While i was at it i added a front lip and red badge overlays

Wondered what you were having done when I saw you at Top Torque on Monday when I was picking up my rebuild 207
Took them just 8 days to do mine.
They dont mess about over there.
Good luck with it

Glad the STi is on the road again! I'm looking forward to a cruise where we can both run our new engines.
I still think you should go for a Dom 1.5 and E85 though.
