waste of time and money. Just get a second hand engine in it, sell it when you want a turbo and buy a turbo. 

 

That is the only correct answer.

 

And refurbish... what exactly are you asking here? I feel like (no offense) but if you're wording things like that you are probably out of your depth. Start with picking a good quality engineering shop, get them to check the condition of engine parts and advise on what parts are due for replacing and go from there as anything due for replacement will have to be measured before purchasing... Once you know what you need you can call some shops and get prices on bearings/pistons/rings/rods/crank ect ect. From there you are going to need to check the valve clearances and replace as required. At the end of the day it's not a simple job, it's going to need a bunch of specialist tools, a machine shop and a whole bunch of money which in the long run WON'T BE GOOD FOR ANY TURBO APPLICATION. Turbo parts are very different to non turbo in terms of strength and also in the way the engine is designed. Then you have a whole mess of ecu and wiring issues that are simply not worth the time. 

 

You could just buy a turbo car and not waste your time or money and have a much better result.

 

If you want to just service the engine by replacing some gaskets, partsouq is the website you are looking for. Genuine parts for less than dealer prices to your door.

      What is this project?
      Its an engine build with a discussion and details about options and trade offs building an engine. Hopefully heaps of photos and video. 
       
      Why?
      Because I couldn’t find the details I wanted online in one place and heaps of builds leave out the discussion on why they picked the parts and what flow on effects it makes.
      Plus after @Joker posted about Facebook YouTube take over I saw a motor and it seemed like a good idea at the time.
       
      Whats with the name?
      It came for a PM from @PBMS as the base engine for this is a EJ207 W block with a suspected cracked piston that on one has looked at yet. Until it’s opened there’s no idea on what’s inside.
       
      When does it start?
      It started on just now March 2019. 
       
      Where is it?
      it will be in this topic mostly and across Possum Borne MS YouTube etc.
       
      How long?
      over the next few months
      since the engine is a donor the cars stays on the road.
       
      Whats the plan?
      So far it is mostly pending the inspection of the block.
       
      Initial thoughts are:
      - build it for around 600hp and then street it about 450whp.
      - Stay 2.0 as the cost of stroking it are a lot higher. As long as the crank is still good.
      - CNC the heads
      - Cams around 264 but has dual AVCS so maybe bigger
      - close deck maybe depends on block condition
       
       
      Since this is my first Subaru build this topic  will be pretty open to ideas and the plan will form.

      Hi all 
       
      I am a noob and do want to replace my (broken) factory bov with one such as a hks ssqv or V6 sti I believe it's an HKS unit. 
       
      However the problem is that my turbo inlet which is on the early wrxs uses a hose rather than a flange to the turbo-intercooler pipe. I don't run the factory pipe rather I use radiator/silicon Hose as mine broke. To fix this, would I either have to get some silicon Hose, drill a hole to fit flange? Or is it best to buy a factory hose?
