well car has been at the garage for several weeks now, after quite a big engine problem have had the following work carried out:

2 x replacement cylinder heads
valves reseated
shims and clearances all checked
ACL race bearings
ARP Head studs
2.1 stroker kit fitted which consists of manley rods, mahle pistons and new nitrided crank

here are a few pics of the engine going back together at the garage.










was a problem with the machining when the bits came back and a valve had to go back to be machined last week as the clearance was not correct

and the last pic from today with most the bits back together





the next plans over the next couple of months and when i got a bit more money are to upgrade the current clutch to an exedy twin plate clutch and ditch the current turbo for a MD321H turbo where should make a comfortable 420bhp and 400 torque with the supporting mods

when i get it back a and run it in i should be bale to get it mapped to around 380/390bhp and hopefully similar torque.

hopefully in the next few months when i get new turbo i can up it to around 420-430

i did look at the 2.35 option and whilst more expensive the general consensus is that thats the best one to go for! how much are you budgeting for it just out of interest?

Must be costing you a small fortune, harsh luck needing all this so soon after buying.

to be honest the engine work would have been getting done anyway, the cylinder heads werent expected on needing to be done and tbh its jut forced me to do it sooner then i wanted to.

engine will now be strong and should now be good for a long while i hope

Is it true his fingers click when the desired torque is reached?

Barnshaw what was the original issue?

First time I have seen a Newage needing Head Work.

Another option would have been to go twin scroll which makes for an awesome road car.

You should see some good results with the turbo your planning on using and I would expect some good longetivity as well.

Are you all defi'd up to keep an eye on what is going on?

ECUTEK for remap or aftermarket management?

alright seth,

yea it was quite an odd problem, not really entirely sure what caused it, possible poor maintenance by previous owners.

yea i got full defis for oil, boost and oil temp and the controller thing for it.

the car came with motec m800 so i will just get the map tweaked when i have run it in, also for 150 quid i can get anti lag which i might be a good laugh

Launch control as well, the clutch will take it and you will decimate all off the line.

are newage as bad as the classics for needing these expensive rebuilds?

I've been looking at them more and more recently.
What are they like on fuel? and general looking after?

plenty of people running engines and have done for 100k + with no problems, some of the guys on impreza forums are on standard engines and internals running over 500bhp on over 2bar psi and the enginers will not blow up for the want of them trying

It perplexes me when someone asks about fuel consumption on an Impreza. Its one of the most fuel hungry (normal) cars that you can buy. What do you expect?

In all my time on Scoobynet (since 2004) I have only ever seen 2 maybe 3 threads of a newage engine failure needing a rebuild.

It is poor maintenance and bad modding that causes issue other then that the newages are VERY reliable IMHO.

it didnt need a rebuild, it was just cylinder heads knackered but whilst all out i got a good deal on the other bits so was worth doing it all whilst out
