Where did you get the heavy duty valve springs?Are you running the OEM subaru valves also?
yes, also wanna know...

yes, also wanna know...
The springs came from a local guy I found through a friend, he said he got them from Paeco a long time ago and never got around to building his project.
He sold em to me for $100, which is a good deal since there are 16 springs on the ea82-t's and OEM's go for around $150.
I'm tearing the motor out right now as I type so I will post some more pics tonight before I goto bed.
More to come!

I also want to see the o-ringed head gaskets.Also any chance you have any connections on where to get higher strength/heavy duty valve springs for ea81?I am looking for some.
BTW- The car looks like it is a sweet project.

Well everything is going smooth so far, assembled both heads, lapped in the valves, put the heads on the motor and torqued them all down.
I'm waiting on the cams from delta, there in the mail and should be here any day.
Tomarrow im fitting the TD04 on with the new flange and welding it all together, basically I measured everything out today and test fit the turbo on the motor, and I'm going to have to raise the turbo UP about 3/4inch, to clear the dogdone bracket, I also had to relocate the EGR Soleniod. So what I'm going to do is CUT off the studs on the stock turbo flange, then grind it all down smooth, then I'm going to CUT off the outter stud part of the flange, about 1 inch of it needs to be removed, then the new TD04 Flange can sit directly on top of the ground down stock flange which will bring the turbo UP 3/4inch and cutting that part of the stock flange allows the outter bolt hole on the new TD04 Flange to fit.
Intercooler piping should be easy, looks as I need (1) 90degree Elbow (2.25inch Turbo Inlet to Intake) , (1) 90degree elbow (2.50inch Throttle Body to IC) and some streight pieces to fill in the gaps.
Coolant Feed and Return Fittings on the TD04 are angled differenly, this is OK but puts lots of extra stress on the hoses because of the ODD bends, so I swapped the Coolant Pipes from the STOCK turbo to the TD04 and everything is perfect now.
Well im beat for tonight, enjoy the pics, More to come tomarrow!

I got the mods to the stock header done today and it all worked out perfectly! The new TD04 Flange is welded on and ready to go!!!!
Enjoy the pics, more to come!

Im still trying to figure all of that out, good news tho is I have access to a pipe bender that does 2-3"
