Wow i havent been on here in a while and was starting to plan out a build like this last week with a legacy or impereza as the donor. I was going to remove the whole rear cross member, struts, and diff as one. Then do the same thing to the front end with the engine, trans, cross member and struts. Then weld up a buggy frame like you have between the front and rear cross member

so whent to mud race on weekend pulled a 4.780 and a 4.810 and broke a hole on 3rd pass just cant get a piston to hold up folded a forged wiseco piston was making hudge power im starting to wonder if the subaru engines cant handle nitros because of having the pistons on there sides i'm thinking the feul is pooling on bottom side of pistons and not burning even. Anyway the suspention is incredabble it came right off the ground at the start and planed across perfectly just need to get the motor to hold up

broke the piston between the ring lands is what always happens oh can see some of the passes on you tube crapanator vs mud shark NWMRA Quesnell bc the fastest cars in my class are a big block with 2 stage nitrios and a 383 with 2 stage nitros gess 800- 900 hp is a bitt hard to catch up with 2.5 at 250 -280 hp but not that far off if i could just get the pistons to hold togther i will get some pics of the engine when i take it apart it has comp of 150 150 145 and 80 at least i know where to look

I'm surprised you're breaking ring lands with 280 HP. Do you have enough fuel for the Nitrous? Any signs of detonation? What do the plugs look like?

How much did the high stall torque converter cost? I'm considering one for my EJ20G with 4EAT.

from what it sounds like, your fuel isnt getting atomized properly. it shouldnt be puddling on the lower half of the cylinder.

maybe your injector spray pattern isnt that healthy. i would check that while its out.

has a nitros foger in the intake i had to small of a pill in the feul side was running 0.28 nos and 0.34 feul was to lean have turned it down to 0.22 nos and 0.32 feul. But i think the piston may have had a problem i did a comp test before engine was run and was 150 150 145 120 the 120 is the one that failed the new one is 155 and the hole was not so nice i think the piston may have been cracked or scratched anyway runs good now race on saterday with a tough truck event ( NO MERCY ) for the craper !
