    control arm im cutting the bushing straight off welding in block for threads so I can lengthen the arm for better camber longer cv axles I have no clue why that tensioner is called that but its supposed to be the better one, I have so many of them the self from all the ej22t motors I own. I guess it holds grip better Roger clark motorsports makes a crazy one but its expensive and I found a way around it. https://rogerclarkmotorsport.co.uk/store/product/659-rcm-high-grip-timing-belt-bracket-tensioner-idler-kit ADDCO 22M front and rear sway bar set up for the wagonBattery tray removed so I can slide them spark plugs in in seconds & front mount intercooler holes cut before paint workhydraulic clutch slave holes drilledBRZ koyo radiator fits like a glove

    yeah glass is out and ill clean the underside my self once its all done, ill just use a black undercoating keep it simple. its allot of work for sure and takes up lots of space that's why its my last one lol I hope many parts have come in for the motor now its time to dig a ej22t block out and build it while I wait for paint work. Wossner Made in Germany forged 22B pistons and connecting rods, STD size pistons means no messing around with my ej22t block & machine shop .... I should have just built all my ej22T this way ACL racing STD size bearings not race version, STi spec-c oil cooler adapter, proper water pump with single port and old school timing belt tensioner from the ej22t aka the motorsports racing tensioner. aurora asm-10T military aviation spec front control arm spherical bearings, this will all me to run longer aka normal Subaru length CV axles and also camber. I won't need to modify the front crossmember to except XT6 front control arms. lots of mess

    i add DBA 2 piece rotors for better stopping on the track, the stoptec ones cracked I also add Forged Billet shifter forks, i was sick of the plastic tab suabru used for the stock STi 6MT transmission.

    I also swapped out the turbo blanket for the PTP Turbo Blanket, so much better design and construction then the DEI ones that fall apart I also swapped the Sparco Grid seat for a MOMO racing seat with higher bolsters to keep me snug while I'm on the track, the sparco grid is in my wagon version.
