My white one

Post  enright82 on 14/12/12, 04:20 pm

hey all, got my first swift gti bout a month ago, swapped it for the engine out of my impreza sti plus a few other bits my mate wanted, so here goes, ill let the pics do the talking to start with







it all started when my mate offered to swap his spare rally car for the engine out of my impreza v2 sti, its been stored in a barn for 4 years and forgotten about, it was done for my mates current co driver, he did 2 events in it then decided he didnt like it, rather than paying my mate for the work that was done, he gave him the car...

at first i thought he was joking but was quite serious about the swap, little did i know it didnt run, took me a while to figure it out but i got there, kill switch had got moisture inside it and caught fire when i tryed to start it! so i put a newwer battery on it with new earth leads to different points and a new fuse box posative feed. still wont start! i check compressions, all ok, sparking, ok.. but wait... its sparking only 4 times from the king lead? for some reason the coil wont give out more that 4 sparks???

then i notice it has an armtech revlimit flat shifter fitted.. with chocky blocks, after removing them and repairing the wires, it still wont start! took the plugs out, shitted up, new plugs, still wont start... fuck sake, plugs out, turns over ok? plugs in wont turn over...

replaced starter motor, it runs!!!! for 10 seconds then dies... i forgot to put the fuel i got for it in lol Smile heres a vid of it running for the first time in 4 years












bought a new rad as the one in it looks crap and is starting to rot, got new black silicone hoses too and a refurbed coolant pipe that bolts to the gearbox as mine is rusty

Also had to change osf engine mount bush as it was fucked, i dont know what mount kit it is so i had to find a bush the same size! Turns out mk2 cortina rear void bush fits, so i fitted one, got one spare

current spec is as follows;

piper cams
Mocal oil cooler and earls fittings
Lightend and balenced flywheel
6puk clutch
grpN chipped ecu
leda coilovers
Solid engine mount kit
whiteline front and rear sway bars
k&n filter
Front slutbrace
janspeed full system
alloy fuel tank guard
OMP weld in cage (painted)
carbon corbeau buckets (not in date)
willians harness's  (not in date)
MSA logbook
full inside and out respray in subaru feather white (type ra white)
alloy quick shift with extented stick
its got an lsd but dont know which one (was in the box whan my mate bought it)
5 sets of wheels and tyres including the yellow revolutions on it atm
white nylon gear knob
Ultra bright headlamp bulbs
Tarox fr discs and mintex pads alround
Braided brakelines 

iv got a dished leather steering wheel to go in but i need a boss kit to fit it.

Im looking to single seat it, poly windows, cut the doors out and carbon door cards, rear link arms,  Uprated fuel pump and custom feed line with high flow filter inside car. Its only going to be used for track use so i can take my time and do the jobs properly!

Just ordered an SR20 throttle body
Modded fuel rail
Bored maf 
Sard rrfpr and gel gauge
After xmas im gunna get an apexi safc and get it set up on the rollers with a bmc cda fitted with a head light vent, should be good result!
