Lol It's been going quite smooth, and taking my time. I'll be match porting/polishing the heads during the week, then should be right to drop it in and fire it up on the weekend....big shout out to Anthony down @ Geelong Subaru, the prices he gave me for most of the build, Melbourne couldn't even match! punk
