I have been a member on this forum for over 10 years but have never formally introduced myself.
My name is Ben and was born and raised in Montreal until I relocated to the US in ‘02. I then moved to NY and just recently moved back to Verdun.
I currently drive a 00 2.5rs. It has come a long way from my daily driver to a dedicated drag car.
I am currently in the middle of building my dream subaru.
I have gone through 5 motors in the last 2 years and I thought that I would stop messing around and give it one last final go.
Shortblock #1: Bought a used SB to begin the build. Turns out it had helicoils in the head bolt holes and was useless. (Lasted 0 miles)
Shortblock #2: Snaped and ARP headstud. Killed the motor (Lasted 700 miles)
Shortblock #3: Cracked 2 Stock sleeves (Lasted 1400 miles)
Shortblock #4: Piston #3 shredded itself to pieces (Lasted 1100 miles)
Shortblock #5: Finished. Haven't run it yet
